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.
Come back, Milly! When will we see you again?
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 Way (02:41), Falling Out (06:10 ), The Way You Look Tonight (08:38 ), Dreams Tonight – original (11:14 ), Nothing Matters Without Love – original (14:27 )
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, in spite of the presence of technology.
Some time reference so you can skip around:
00:15 – Is That Love (Squeeze)
03:02 – Fly On the Wall (original)
07:08 – Til We’re Gone (original)
Covid Collab video of this original by Dreaming Chris, with the excellent Ian Brumbaugh on drums. This one wants to get out of its cage.
Special Edition Covid Collab: Dreaming Chris moonlighting with a stellar pickup band composed of Cousin Michael Magee (lead vocal), Cousin-in-Law & Bass Diety Graham Maby (bass and backing vocal), and High School Classmate and Rush aficionado Ian Brumbaugh (drums). A rare treat indeed to play with these guys.
The Phil-52’s are among us, and Phil, Mike, Karen, and Chris make their way to Planet Claire, thanks to the Interstellar Party Animals from Athens, Georgia, home to many an unidentified wayward object. Stay home, Earthlings. Avoid the Covidian Virus.
Here’s another Covid Collab, this one written by Jason Mraz, with Margie Salvante doing a fine job with a soulful lead vocal, Marie Huard’s also soulful voce on second vocal at the end, and Mike Lim’s nimble bass playing. Dreaming Chris fills it out with the rest. Nice work, team!
Here’s Positively Sweet Marie and the Zimmer Men (Ed, Jonathan, and twin brothers Ed & Hank) performing a Dylan classic.
