  1. Stanley A. Johnson says

    In 1995, while waiting for the show at the old Music Haven stage, my late wife Joan and I moved into the shady trees to get out of the hot sun. I saw a beautiful woman up the hill going through a stretching routine that a ballerina might do before a perfomance. My wife, who was a big ballet fan, wondered if she was a professional dancer. Turned out to be Jonatha Brooke of The Story and the music was wonderful as well. Thanks for reminding me.

  2. Fred says

    2014, 2012, and 2002 were superb shows. I especially miss the virtuoso, crazy and unpredictable Asylum Street Spankers

  3. Richard Brody says

    The 1989 Bonnie – Richard show was fabulous. There were were more than a few jaws that dropped during Richard’s set, including Bonnie’s. And then fresh from the release of “Nick of Time”, Bonnie commented on how much fun it was going to be to play for fans and not NYC music critics. A great evening.

    Let’s just say that particular Bonnie/Richard show provided an especially interesting day for me.


  5. Richard Brody says

    I think there was some discussion of an advanced tire changing course for all concerned in your vehicle.
