All I can say is WOW!

Of course, it's all free! A couple of additional points of interest. . .

If you would be interested in seeing Mark play something a little
check out Buddy Mohmed (listed above) at 1:00PM. Buddy plays his own
blend of Middle-Eastern, jazz, and original music, with longtime friend
sometimes musical conspirator, Mark Menikos. A most unusual blend!
. .yet sophisticated. Also—following the very brief Brothers 3 spot at
race on over (we will be) to see B3's own Martin McCall in his own group,
Japanese Taiko drum troupe Kobushi. And of course, if you're a Celtic
fan, do not miss a rare appearance by those Australian boys, Brother.
Nice name. . .

As always,

Peace, Love, Health, & Success to all!
