Take steps to protect yourself:
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care. Learn what to do if you are sick.
  • Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community. This is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.

Open Mic at Big Johns Pub

Tracey Bartone and Johnny KeysWell, we can say "that is that" with the closing of Big Johns Pub, the open mic landscape of northern new jersey has forever changed.  I will always value the friends and the great music we made on Thursday nights.  I have been getting out to local music shows and open mics.

Big Johns Pub Thursday Open MicThe torch has been passed to Bob to host the Big Johns Pub Thursday Open Mic.  Bob and his crew will be playing with local musicians every Thursday Night beginning at 8 PM.  I will be stopping by with my piano on a regular basis fro the Jam.  Susie Q will be hosting an open mike every other Sunday during the Winter Months so check  Big Johns Pub Website for  more details!

Big Johns Thursday Open Jam

Well, never say never! It looks like we will be doing an open Mic at Big Johns Pub in January and February 2013! The Last open Mic Ever was a big success thanks to all the talented friends that stopped by to play. 

And thanks to Susie Q, the Sunday Open Mic continues into March 2013. Susie Q is doing a great job of it and I will be attending regularly. So stop by every other Sunday between 4 pm and 8 pm for some fun playing music with friends at Big johns Pub!

Kokopelli - by Ruth Mary Mesrobian - (Ruthie gave me the Spirit of Music for Xmas!) Kokopelli is venerated by some Native American cultures in the Southwestern United States. Kokopelli presides over both childbirth and agriculture. He is also a trickster god and represents the spirit of music. Ruthie explained that Kokopelli wanders from village to village playing music and if you see him, you have to feed him and buy him drinks :-D



Blueberry pie is my favorite with a nice scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side, but the Blueberry Pie Rockin' Blues Band is a rockin' blues band with drummer Doug Volpi calling out tasty numbers featuring guitarists Ralph and Ruthie with Freddo on bass. Rounding out the band is Gary on harmonica and guitarist/violinist Gene.
