    Paul and his band were brilliant and rocking!!! What virtuosic musicianship!! Tommy McDonnell rocked the house with his perfect, heartfelt blues vocals and harmonica! Glenn Alexander -- a genius with the guitar. Neil Jason and Clifford Carter were captivating on bass and keyboards. Would have loved to hear a drum solo by the master, Paul Peress, but he must have felt modest tonight. Two brilliant sets from a band I was honored to be in the presence of.

    Got tired of waiting for them to perform. some guy was practicing with headphones on till I finally left. The music in the background before the group came on was too loud, and was too metalic for me/gave me a headache. I only gave this one star, but I wouldnt have given it any but I had to click one for this to process.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
