lesblank Coffee House Scene (2) RE: Coffee House Scene 31 Dec 98


I patronized many of the coffee houses from LA to east Orange county. I hit every open mike I could and met a lot of great musicians and singers of song. Some venues were: Frankensteins, LaGuna Beach -- first place I ever saw Steve Gillette perform. Golden Bear, Huntington Beach -- need I say more -- Hoyt Axton was a regular(as was Steve) also saw Ian & Sylvia and Gordon Lightfoot at old Greek George's place. Pontifract, Tustin -- first place I ever heard a Tom Lehrer song. Paradox, Orange -- (they have a web site) and I've talked to the guys who ran the spots when I was trying so hard to get someone, anyone to listen to me. Regulars were Jackson Browne and Mary McCasslin. There were many more and I'm sorry I didn't get to them at least once. Thanks for the memories.
