GUEST,Hard 8 :: :: When the Audience Misbehaves (48) RE: When the Audience Misbehaves 17 Sep 04

I remember a story from Richard Gilewitz, who was playing at the Flora-Bama Lounge (which I hope is still standing at this point, right on the Gulf, straddling the Florida - Alabama state line).

He was playing classical guitar, J, S. Bach Cantata 147 (Herz & Mund, etc.) when an intoxicated denizen of the "Redneck Riviera" charged the stage and in Richard's face, said, "I wanna hear some Jimmy Buffet."

Gilewitz continues to play.

After a moment says, quietly, "This is Jimmy Buffet".

Drunk says, "Cool! Sounds like angels & sh#t". Sits back down.
