(November 5, 2016--#2)

The second session of Something Coffee House Open Mic was a great success.   Performers who ranged from polished entertainers to first-time presenters delighted a friendly, congenial audience.

Tom Glannon started the evening with his dramatic poetry readings.   Then 15-year old Sunny Marcus, accompanied by her father, Bruce, made her performing debut on our stage, in a song and ukelele duet with her dad, then a solo guitar and song by Sunny.   The audience celebrated Sunny’s birthday by singing “Happy Birthday” to her, then Bruce demonstrated his storytelling skills with a memorable story about his daughter as a young child.

In addition to hosting the Coffee House, Walter Ness also presented the next installment of his “It was a beautiful day” humorous storytelling.   Josh M. then presented several deeply moving original poems; and Nancy M. presented her original humorous verse.

A series of musical performers came next.   Wes Nickerson (DeerHeart) sang several original songs, accompanying himself on ukelele.   Michael P. sang two original songs accompanied by acoustic guitar, and Janet C. presented two rousing songs accompanying herself on electrified Spanish guitar.   The final performer of the evening was Tina C., who offered original comedic commentary on the upcoming election.   After the show, performers and audience socialized and chatted over refreshments.
