    What a show! I decided to go the day of the concert, and was blown away. So much energy on stage, I see why they were nominated for a Grammy!

    I have to apologize for not being able to come at the last minute, something of an emergency for a close friend came up and I needed to help. I would not usually be a no show, and I so wanted to be there!

    Johnny D's is all out of reservations for tables. Just an FYI.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
