Another noon session at John Henry’s Maui Coffee Attic, Dreaming Chris’ second home on Maui. Played here this time with Wayne, Stevan, and the Formidably Talentuoso Secret Guitarist/Upside-down Bass Player for about three hours, running through a pile of originals and covers, from “The Way You Look Tonight” to “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”. No rehearsal (that’s obvious), but nobody got hurt. Thanks to our kind audience (especially those AmeriCorps girls and the ladies at the front table) and to John for welcoming us yet again hither.
