Full, 1/2 – hour open mic set with the welcoming folks at Desert Southwest Open Mic. “It’s great to be here in Tucson, tonight!” The usual gremlins here and there, but the overall effect should still be, we hope, “mildly pleasurable”. Son of a Gun (00:38), Calling To You (03:00), The Beat (07:31), Let ItContinue reading “Desert Southwest Open Mic (08/13/20)”
Take a sip from your Coronaviral Beverage while tuning in to Dreaming Chris’ open mic set, transmitted to you during an exciting August chorus of thunder and lightning. Thank you, Delco Quarantine Open Mic, for the opportunity to warble to the huddled masses, all both of them. Every Night (00:395), Paper Wings (03:46), Rising SunContinue reading “Delco Quarantine Open Mic (08/07/20)”
Two open mics with nearly the same tunes as Delco Quarantine, earlier. Excuse the repetition, just keeping track so the next one at each place has new material: Malelani: Wasted On the Way (00:10), Kanaka Wai Wai (03:18), American Tune (06:38).
Beatles three-part harmony with some lovely dissonance and melody/chord harmonizations from Lennon-McCartney. Much thanks to Galeazzo Frudua for his meticulous decoding work.
Second foray into the Delco Open Mic for Chris Thomas, who’s keeping the band flag burning while Norm Thomas wrestles with lawyers and Ricky Thomas remains Somewhere Under the Radar. Alison (00:06), American Tune (03:01), Besame Mucho (07:26), Chico & the Man (11:24), Cry Baby Cry (14:40), Kanaka Wai Wai (17:27), Meadowlarks (20:25), Breakdown –Continue reading “Delco Quarantine Open Mic (07/30/20) #2”
Drummer Gregg Delso of the cover band Too Many Kings responded to a Craigslist ad thrown out into the Coronaverse by Dreaming Chris, with the happy result that they covered this song from Gregg’s old band Pascal Project, co-written by Gregg and former bandmate Adrian De Marco. Mid-Sixties vibe, catchy riff – what more couldContinue reading ““Serenity Now” – Pascal Project (07/29/20)”
Covid Collab with friends Tracey, Mike, Joe, and Wayne. What a field day for the Heat.
With lots of little bitties added to the previous basement version, including the Supernatural Bassist.
Chris played the Philly Local Impact Live virtual open mic this evening. The long-standing love affair with framing his head partially out of the video manifested itself again until 08:38, when “The Way you Look Tonight” gets going. Thanks to Tom Monari and Ashton John for organizing/hosting/playing. Is That Love (00:00), Wasted On the WayContinue reading “Philly Local Impact Open Mic (07/21/20): Dreams Tonight, Nothing Matters…”
Wandering out of the confines (virtually) of the house, Dreaming Chris played Malelani Café’s Facebook Live Open Mic, trying out “Is That Love” (by Squeeze, recently undertaken with some aplombly with Graham, Michael, and Ian), “Fly On the Wall” (m’oldie original), and “Til We’re Gone” (fresh original) on his fellow open mic’ers. An agreeable evening,Continue reading “Malelani Café Open Mic (07/16/20): “Is That Love”, “Fly On the Wall”, “Til We’re Gone””
