Sunday, Sep. 30 LET'S GO METS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also, just want to say what a great time was had by all last night at Banjo Jim's! Andy Mullen and James Adamo rocked, and Marc and I got to groove a bit, too! I was thrilled to get in a few of the new/old acoustic tunes I am working out for my solo record, as well as my most favorite covers (Alison, Angel of Montgomery). Marc joined in on piano for No Good For Me and Don't Feel Better, which now, as a result, I am seriously considering having them played like that on the record. Love the jazz/blues piano! Finally, I stepped WAY out of my comfort zone to try an acapella rendition of Sam Cooke's "Hem of his Garment." I had sung it in the shower for the last few days and figured, "What the hell!" I had my eyes shut tight the entire time, so I really have no idea of what people thought about the whole business, but they clapped hard at the end so that made me feel good - nothing like trying out new material on a room full of teachers! I knew they would be super supportive, as they are every day when they show up to work. A fabulous bunch of friends were there to round out a spectacular evening - Sculls, Kristin, Chrystie, Mac, Linds, Lily, Brian, Eric, Angela, Lier, John, Scott, Bob, and I'm sure I'm forgetting someone so...I apologize...but you know you are loved! We capped the evening with an impromptu square dance led by the one and only Andy Mullen - what a blast! I never thought I'd see the day that I would appreciate the subtle genius of instant party-starter: the square dance. But I'm hooked and will let you know when Andy comes calling once again! Ok, I'm off to the game... Jules Saturday, Sep. 29 Check out our interview from Thursday night on www.artistfirst.com! When Scully gets home he'll put up the html so you can just click on it from here, but in the meantime just go to the archives and click on Jules and the Family on www.artistfirst.com. Thanks Philip, Robert, Anna and Russell and everyone else for listening!!! Sweet! Jules
