A few thoughts about my performance at the-"Soundgarden Music Cafe", Amsterdam:
On Thursday evening (1st Dec.) me, with my accoustic guitar and my set of harmonica's, Leo Adamov, with his violin, and Marielle Braam, singing harmonies, faced a crowd of happy Soundgarden patrons, who were leaning against the bar, an arm's length away from the us ... intimate!.... The room was in a haze of smoke, and had a relaxed feeling to it: at one point, one of the audience, so relaxed, began crawling across the floor, (the effect of my music?) ... snooker cues clicked in the backroom...and a white cat curled up snuggly on a bar stool, and slept through it all .... Martyn, the owner, tapped out a rhythm in time to our music, and adjusted and readjusted, the volume on the amplifier, as I rocked toward and away from the microphone, in my passionate singing!
People seemed to like our music. The girl behind the bar was singing along with the songs, as if she knew them ... very encouraging.
Martyn said, later,

"I normally only like heavy rock, but your music really got through to me ..."

He asked us to play in his cafe again! and we even got paid!!
As I was putting my guitar away in its incredibly heavy guitar-case, (more about that another time), a laid-back drinker and smoker, told me, from under his wide-brimmed, black hat ,
"well your music stopped the guys from fist-fighting tonight!"

.... the magic of my songs!
