A Hawaii-Hootenanny 5-0!
And Saturday night Tom and I were lucky enough to attend one for Liane,
Ms. Hootenanny, herself.
What's a Hootenanny? Here's the official description from its Meet-Up site:
"These open jam sessions are open to all musicians at our outdoor woodsy stage. We keep it mainly acoustic, but we can hookup to some amps occasionally. We do our thing every Friday night and have a great time playing and enjoying newcomer talent. Not much of an audience yet, but we like it just fine! The core band is Linton Mancilla. Our style is a mixture of many, so we can play along with your songs, whatever they may be. We usually have guitar players, a keyboard setup, a mandolin player, a flautist, and some type of percussion (no trap sets yet please!) We start at about 7:00, and people just gradually show up. If this would interest you, please call for directions and such. We are on myspace, search for Linton Mancilla, and at www.sonicbids.com/LintonMancilla"
Ever wonder what a Texas-style Luau would be like?
Come along with me and I'll show you...
