That's an interesting interior. It's like a church with a liquor license. With a black light carpet, which makes me think of something else too. Anyway, good luck and I hope they stay reasonably quiet. And if the cocktail waitress wear nun's habits with bunny ears, slip a dollar in her garter for me.

Your concert looks like such a blast. I wish I lived closer. That's my idea of a great evening. I hope others agree and that you pack the house.

Hi Roy,

Would you like to list this in our Calendar section? :)

It will then automatically go up on your profile page, expiring the day after the concert, and it will have the Google map, etc., etc. that every listing gets.

Would love to see more people using the Calendar!

That said, it's totally fine with me for you to make your announcement in your blog.

Sounds great. We went to hear "Bach in the Bar" once and you could hear a pin drop when the solo cellist was playing. Even the bar tender did not rattle the ice when making drinks. It was way cool.

I like the "No talking while the musicians are performing" part.

Jim, I like your comment about a church with a liquor license.

Thanks, folks, for the appreciative comments.
Jim, it is indeed a converted church. Great space!!
Laurie, thanks, I'll post it in the calendar. I did, however, want to post the photo and the additional info shich is why I put it here originally. Thanks for the permission and the encouragement.
Donna, I assume that Bach in a Bar was with Matt Haimowitz. He's making quite a career of this.
Thanks all.

Thanks for your nice comment about classical Cabaret. Assuming that Bach in a Bar was with Matt Haimowitz.
A few questions: was the event billed in advance as "no talking while the music is playing?" Also did he us amplification? Were there any other musicians playing? What did he wear? Actually, just about anything you could tell me would be very helpful
