THE MANDOLIN CAFE in Tacoma. OPEN MIC with DENNY FOREMAN AND FRIENDS each Sunday 6 pm to 9 pm. My hint: Get there early for parking. This is a fun relaxed place with an art gallery, that I [Jan] especially enjoyed when Steve played there with PETER PENTRAS awhile ago. News from RUSS HARRIS found on FACEBOOK about he being there tonight..."Denny & I are planning to facilitate Open Mic at the Mandolin Cafe - Tonight Sign-up @ 5:30 Strike the mic @ 6". Thanks Russ.
RAMTHA's SCOOL OF ENLIGHTENMENT...Ramtha's Feast In Europe in two weeks. Nothing locally for this week.
YELM COMMUNITY EXPANSION. No new events reported.
STEVE BARTLETT/BARTLETT ON BASS..Well, as I reported above, Steve sat in THE SHELLY ELY JAM at Uncle Sam's Bar and Grill, last Sunday for bassman, TERRY JAE. Steve had a great time.
He's been connecting with MIKE KARNES, they've been working together, creating a kid's music workshop for March [March 5th]. That's in the beginning stages. Now, it looks like the workshop will be held in Silverdale, instead of Port Orchard. Brilliant knowable musicial instructors will show the kids how it's done. The kids will be given written charts as well as live music instruction. Cool. So far, MIKE KARNES will be giving the guitar instruction, with STEVE BARTLETT giving the bass guitar instruction. A fantastic mystery/secret vocallist will be doing the voice instruction. Cool. You don't want to miss this! Get your musically-loving kids ready. I'll keep everyone up to date, as new information comes in...I'll post it. OK?
Yesterday, Bartlett performed in Yelm, at newly-weds, former BLUE BOTTLE owner Michelle Jones and Flemming Olsen's home. It was a life celebration for R.S.E student REGGIE, with Rob /guitar and the DJ was ROBERT JONES Jr.
Today, Bartlett is jamming with, our neighbor Steve Hicks/drums, relaxing and resting. Cool.
