Beat Night at the Mudpuppy

It was glorious

To start – jammed packed house, and who doesn’t love that?!  Every chair taken and people standing at the back.  That’s just soooo encouraging for any performer.  And didn’t we have a ton of performers – narrative poets (including moi), sound poets, rhyming poets, singers, musicians, and comedians.  One young singer/songwriter named Danielle Haslip brought the house down with her amazing voice and talent, and I’m delighted to learn she’s releasing her first CD soon.  Stay tuned for further details.

I read two pieces, a long one (st. irene) and a short one (st. edith stein).  The crowd was warm and enthusiastic and one dear lady, a fellow choir member, was so carried away she even got to her feet to give me a “standing O!”  Oh!  Wonderful!

It was nearly 10 o’clock when we finally dragged our tired bodies home, way past my bedtime, but I was so wired I couldn’t get to sleep.  Just a magical evening, and the organizers were so pleased with the turnout and reception, they promised to have another Beat Night.  As soon as I know the details, I’ll pass ’em on to you.

This was a great idea!
