      LOL

      Actually Prine asked us to close the bar at intermission. He says that his crowd tends to drink a lot and he likes to speak with them during and after the show...Roger was just happy to have the gig!

            Are they playing together? Same show, different billing? Different shows?

            Details, man!

              I'd be interested to hear if Joan still has "it". Used to be if she sang "Joe Hill" or "Swing Low" the hair on my neck and arms would stand up. No kidding.

                Hey L5S -- what is your venue, concert/club situation, or bar/dance floor converted when necessary? -- which seems to be in the majority, as it appears a return to intimate/performance staging -- ala the folk days -- is gaining momentum.

                I'm in the process of testing the venue waters -- having much in common with Roger; I knew him as "Jim" when I was singing with The Wayfarers and he was a pre-Byrds folk artist (1965). Destiny led me to form The Music Machine (1966), and although a few reunion shows last year were financially rewarding and extremely well received, I prefer the intimacy and interaction of a solo presentation.
                The basis of this presentaion relies on 'Beyond The Garage', a self published biography; coupled with original song renderings from both genres (folk's evolution to rock etc.), the program aims to be dynamically informative and uniquely entertaining. Question is... are there venues to support such a concept.
                Your thoughts on the matter will be greatly appreciated...

                  JP is the man, I'd be worried I'd act like a 13 year old girl meeting the backstreet boys if I met him...

                    I love roger/jim and the byrds, been one of my favorites since I was a teen.

                    A while back I caught a live show on local radio, kept driving since I figured it would be over before I got home, wrong! He played acoustic for about a hour singing and playing all my favs, when I finally did head back he finished.

                    REALLY wished I'd been home to record it, and never heard even 1 cut on the radio again.

                    I actually emailed him and asked about why he never released any of the tape. He explained very kindly that the station owned it all and they chose not to release any, even though they are famous for releasing their studio performances on CD

                    bummer.

                        Brady Theater; Tulsa, Okla.

                        Roger and John are lovely human beings. Joan is a quiet lady...

                            That the Music Machine is symbolically winked at as a "garage band" is inescapable. We DID rehearse in a garage, and the little neighborhood in San Pedro often gathered in large numbers to listen. If that's what qualifies me as the "grandfather of punk" then there may be some truth to the accolade
