A Night to Remember

by Marianne Olive

On Sunday night February 21 Olive’s celebrated a moving away party for the brilliantly talented drummer, Jon Karel, and his girlfriend Jenna, who are “shuffling off to Buffalo.”

We had a full house of talented musicians who jammed till the wee hours of the morning(4am).WOW! What fun, what excitement, what talent filled Olive’s stage with a continuous flow of the most talented entertainment outside of Manhattan all gathered in one place…UNREHEARSED! I felt like I was back at “Woodstock” in the summer of 69.

I want to personally thank each and every great musician who moved everyones spirits and heightened our musical appreciation for those who were lucky enough to be there.
