Guess what, the Open Mic is back on! Same place, same time, same boring host! ;p

So if you are in the area, every Monday night, starting round 9:30 or so, come on out and enjoy some good music.

I've just reached the end of my stint in Detroit (2.5 weeks). Took in some music with DDW (thanks for everything and then some, David!) but didn't make Kildare House - sorry Clinton. I wanted to come over this last Monday and see people, but travelling that far on a school night (especially given the workload I've had, and having to be in at 8am) kind of ruled it out. Ho hum. Real shame that entertainment there is winding down - last time I was there (a couple of years back now :-) Clinton did a seriously good gig.

Don't know when I'll next be over (the reason for coming across was for project handover and closedown, so I won't be back to Ford soon), but rest assured I'll give you a shout when I next get over that way.

Graham.

PS. Congratulations, Clinton - hope life treats you both well!

Sorry to hear that, Clinton. I don't think I've been to any open mics all summer-- hardly even picked up the guitar it seems.

YY and all, check in to CH's website for info on his gigs. He's pretty good about keeping it up to date. Just let us know if you're going to be in the area, and we can find a place to get together.

This really disappoints me. I made over once, and was going to stop the Monday after Rick's Memorial, but the friggin' heart attack got in the way. Clinton ran a great night, and I was very much looking forward to stopping in again.

Clinton, keep me posted if this starts again, I want to get over and do a little more music.

All the best,

Well, thanks folks! Those of you who cam e out at least...

Unfortunately, the Kildare House has pulled the plug on the Open Mic, due to lack of audience interest coupled with a loss of sponsorship.... (The Kildare House has also temporarily cancelled it's Thursday and Sunday entertainment... Tough times all round eh)

So, well, all good things eh...

To everyone who came out at any time, ta very much!

With any luck when things pick up around the K House again, we'll take another stab at the open mic thing

See ya's down the road

Alright... now I've left you folks alone with this for too long...

Just look at what you've done by NOT coming out... Last week DDW showed up with the brand new (for him) 12 String he got with Gift certificates won at MY Open Mic! And to thing YOU coulda had a piece of that action...

It is a sweet piece of axe... and I tend to not like 12 strings much...

So come on out folks! Casue we're having fun without ya's... but it'd be better if you were there too!

Cool B — actually this week wasn't too bad. There were two tables of card players in the room, but for the most part they were attentive (or at least quiet). And once I got thru there were some good musicians there, too.

Love to see you back. Anybody who can give me the first line of a Pink Anderson tune is all right with me.....

"actually be able to hear all of you"

Well, it is first and foremost a pub, so most people are there to talk, drink, play cards, throw darts... And when we're lucky, some even come for the music...

Those are the BEST nights!

FYI.. The Big guy, and his little toadie, who were making all the noise have been told that if they are gonna come out, they are to sit in another room... preferable in another pub...

They shant be an issue any more!

Also as DDW was the only one to come out last week, he won again... and in discussion with the owners, the more often you win, the more often your name goes into the ballet-box for the 500 bucks at the end of they year... so come on out folks... make David at least WORK for his new 12 string!

The two prizes, as a reminder, were a fifty dollar gift certificate to Riverside Music in Windsor, and a 20 dollar gift certificate to the Kildare House.

Although all were good, the two winners were, a local guy who is a good picker and who really sounds like Chris Deburgh. (yes the lady in red singer), and the other winner was Mudcat's own Big Mick Lane.

I couldn't agree more, but believe it or not they were well-behaved last night, compared with how they've been other nights. They've been a pain in the ass for as long as I've been going there and it never seems to occur to them — particularly the jerk with the muscle shirt and shaved head, who makes about 80 percent of the noise — that it might be better if they played in another room.

Clinton throws what barbs he can, but they seem impervious to all of them and, short of asking the management to intervene, I don't know what can be done. Maybe Marty's suggestion is best — get there early and take all the seats....

cheers,

david

I'm with you, Maryanne. Maybe next time we grab up those seats early and block 'em out. I was in a band that once played a bar on Cape Cod where people were throwing bottles against a wall, not unlike that scene in "The Blues Brothers." But those guys last night were noisier.

I don't want to whine, but I will anyway. Did anybody else think that the card-players were beyond rude? I expect people will carry on conversations while I sing. It's a bar, afterall. But I thought YELLING was too much. I really wanted to just stop in the middle of the song, and smack 'em. There, I feel better.

And so another of Lane's Looney Rambles comes to an end. These things started with an 11 roundtrip drive for a 3 hour visit to Rick some years ago. They were taken to the next level with the advent of the "drive 13 hours each way" through the dead of the night to get to the FSGW Getaway and then operate on 6 hours sleep through the weekend. Last night I left home shortly after 7:00 PM and drove 3 hours to Windsor to attend the singalong with Clinton, maire-ann, Devilmaster, Cool Beans, and ddw. Heard some mighty singing and playing at the Kildare House, sat and had the odd jar with Clinton, Devilmaster and some of the regulars, left shortly after 2:00 AM and drove home (which took 3 1/2 hours) and got home in time to get my daughter off to school.

If you can, get to one of Clinton's performances or his open mike. In either case, you will be glad you did. I thoroughly enjoyed myself, with this wonderful bunch.
