Digging Duggan's

It was lovely to see several "Jazzology" stars including Cam Britton and his lovely wife Kris, Chris Butcher and of course the star of the evening  Nathan dell-Vandenberg and Maybe Not.

Here is the charming Ben McConchie on trumpet and flugelhorn with Mikko Holden on guitar. He was having some fun doing the emceeing - plus he has a great radio voice and personality as we discovered - Ben graciously helped Larry Green out one fundraising campaign. Ben and his gorgeous wife (whose name I have forgotten already, d'oh! Sorry!) are expecting twins plus he is going into the Master's program at U of T...busy, busy. They already have a lively 2 1/2 year old who loves music and has been known to dance to Jazz FM selections....

I encourage Duggan's to make music a regular feature - they have a great beer selection - I sampled the Weissbeer - which as promised smelled of bananas and cloves! Cam tells me the food is delicious as well - he and his wife and some of the staff from Massey Hall make a point of stopping by after concerts....

Things are sprouting in the garden...oh please hang in there and grow up enough to foil the groundhoggen....the plot is a little open and needs some fencing around it to somewhat deter the critters....I say somewhat because they are wily....

I hear through the jazz grapevine that Shannon Butcher's "Little Hearts" CD release at Hugh's Room is sold out! Congratulations - well deserved! Of course, this means I should have planned better and bought my ticket...drat.
