Jim Dawson is truly a "Friend of My Father's Place" who has performed for us over the years right from the begining of the original club. Today, Jim is performing regularly in the NYC area. He just finished a new CD called "Little Off the Road Motel". He is one of those rare songwriters that can successfully interpret our feelings as we continue to grow and grow older. His new songs are wonderful with the usual great melodies and perceptive lyrics.

LAURA NYRO birthday tribute - back by demand;
Christine and Elliot Spero play Laura in a super concert ..    CHRISTINE SPERO GROUP PERFORMS MUSIC OF LAURA NYRO TICKETS $35
“Laura’s music is in fine hands with Christine Spero who is a terrific musician. She can play and sing Laura’s songs like few others. She knows this music inside out, and rises to the challenge on each song singing with expressiveness and power. At times her voice sounds like she could be Laura’s twin sister! It's such challenging music to sing, and she does it so beautifully. I don't think I've ever heard anyone who's voice naturally sounds as much like Laura's as Christine's does (although it is certainly distinguished in it's own way). I also thoroughly enjoyed Christine's original song, "Laura and John". The arrangements are true to Laura’s originals but with some sweet creative touches as well. The band members are all pros and Christine can really play that piano! Laura’s fans should really enjoy this recording. Christine is a very talented woman, and I'm so glad she did such a beautiful job with my sister's music." Jan Nigro - Brother of Laura Nyro -
