If Vanessa had been along in this little town… it would have cost money. Lots of little shops!

This has been a great little run so far… but it’s nice to have a day off. Now we’re heading up to Rockport, Mass. where I will play at the Shalin Liu tomorrow.

Onward…

    Hi Jorma – Saw you last night in East Greenwich. It was an absolute honor to be there. What an awesome show, thank you. Please come back soon!

    “If Vanessa had been along in this little town… it would have cost money. Lots of little shops!”

    I know the feeling buddy!

    Ouch! It really hurt not being able to make it to the Rhode Island show, Jorma. Sorry.

    Jorma,
    We really enjoyed the show at Mauch Chunk. I agree that Craig Thatcher is a real treat to have around. We are blessed to have so many great players in the NJ/PA area. It was very cool to see Myron get up and jam with him. He is a fine musician and that was a pleasant surprise. Aside from the insufferable dickhead in the front row, it was an awesome set, in a cool little venue. You are always so patient with fans and alike. I am glad I got a chance to say “Hi.” Hope you enjoy the photos. Jim Thorpe is a great little town. I wonder if Vanessa could find a new vacuum in one of those “little shops.”

    Be well and come back soon.

    Jorma – I can’t wait to see your show in Rockport tonight (and at the Bull Run this summer). Love your music and passion! Stay well. Matt

    Jorma:
    The photo: “The Cuyahoga on the way to the Music Box” is a fine example of how
    you can compose a photo of an industrial scene and make it look as beautiful as
    any of your nature photos.

    “If Vanessa had been along in this little town…it would have cost money.
    Lots of little shops!”
    Now Jorma, you sound like Rev Run talking about his wife, while they are out on
    “Rev Runs Around The World”. Most of us women love the little shops. Every doorway is an invitation to go in there and take a look around. I especially like it when things being sold there are made by the locals.

    Jorma,

    Can’t wait to see you tonight in South Orange NJ! I’m a six time veteran of Fur Peace Ranch and countless Jorma/Tuna shows but sadly have not had the pleasure in about ten years. Would love to hear Sea Child tonight!

    I had the good fortune of sitting next to that jackass in the front row. Really made a great intimate night not as great as it could have been. Jackass!!

    Fine gig at So. PAC.

    Sounded great! “Crazy Eddie” stuff was a hit! Eddie Antar was eventually charged with a series of crimes and Antar was sentenced to eight years. The NJ crowd totally gets it. Nice to have Jersey boy Bob Steeler in the house!

    I am looking forward to Arts and Minds @ FPR in July!

    Be well and safe travels.

    Hi Jorma,

    Any chance of dusting off “Hot Jelly Roll Blues” for tonight’s show at The Landmark on Long Island?

    Thanks,

    Great musicians seem to attract gooder ones, such is the case with Jorma and Mr. Hart and the venerable John ‘Hurl’ Hurlbut. Wishing you all the very best tonight for your opening show and season at The Ranch. m
