We had some wonderful times at the Java Jo's Open Mike. Fortunately we had a chance to thank Ana Eder-Mulhane for making it such a friendly place at a reunion and CD Release Party on June 21st, spondored by Neal Braverman of the Roslindale Open Mike. Here's a couple pictures and we will have a recording of the evening in the future.
