Neighbor Bobby Ingram led the cast of folk music legends that got their start in this room on Ponce (now, The Titanic Pub). Any of them, who played for 15 minutes each, could have carried the evening by themselves. They've been at this for half a century. Homer
It was a reunion of friends, too, as we saw many of ours in the audience and on stage. Homer Wills and I used to cut up together in high school and last night he was performing with his amazing harmonica. He flew in from California for the show.
The event was organized by comedian Gabe Kaplan ("Welcome Back Kotter"). He mc'd the show and was as funny as ever. The last two are today. If you miss them you may have to wait another fifty years.
