this is the kind of scene you might find some random night at lightnin’ salvage… pictured here is bridgett kelly and guest taking the stage on a wednesday night, with a chorus of kids invited for this song. i can assure you, i wasn’t the only one photographing this…
yes, live music 5 nights a week almost every week. next tuesday there is a gentleman who may attempt to play our new old piano for the first time. the guy who tuned it said the piano probably comes from the late 1800′s. that’s pretty amazing it’s still around. in july mike amish and friends will be on deck every tueday night to entertain the locals for our summer showcase.
the summer showcase features the following bands/ musicians once a month, or once a week in some cases:
blitzbergen, joel pickering, john rogers, sweet harmony, frank whitenack, the bluesbenders, dino lorenzo trio, the klezmer kats, dj nora, and mike amish, among others… the place should be a magnet for all sorts of locals and families looking for a fun place for the kids where the grown-ups can relax for a change.
speaking of dj nora: if you know her you love her. she spends her thursday nights playing some of the smoothest tunes in alachua county right at lightnin’ salvage. you know i feel kind of proud having such a great dj on board. she is the backbone of the vibe.
but i cannot tarry here. i have some night time security issues to attend to. and that word “tarry” reminds me of a word i mis-spelled yesterday, “quandary” not quandry. interestingly enough, i stumbled across that word today in a book and realized if it was spelled right in the book, then i spelled it wrong yesterday. i like to look up words in my dictionary.
