Music on Bonnie Branch

On Sunday, October 2nd, 2005...

Sam Shaber & Teddy Goldstein
with Kathi Kowski Opening

Kathi performed a great opening set. She told us before the show that she had never performed without a mic before. She didn't need to worry, she sounded great. I'm looking forward to her solo CD release some time next year. Visit her website and get on her mailing list if you'd like to find out where she's playing next. You'll also be able to find out when she plans on releasing her upcoming CD.

As for Sam and Teddy, Wow! I knew it would be a good show, but they delivered beyond my wildest expectations. Being my first time hearing Teddy live, I am now an official fan. And you should be too. Get to his website right away and get on his mailing list so you can see him the next time he's in town. His talents cover the spectrum from songwriting, to singing to guitar and harmonica. And he did a fantastic job working with Sam during the evening.

I've seen Sam a couple times already and I was duly impressed already. Now after seeing her perform side-by-side with Teddy, I know there's talent there far beyond what a solo show can deliver. Makes me want to catch her with her band some day soon. Sam and Teddy worked together like two old friends ... which they are. They hadn't played together in quite a while they said, but we couldn't tell.

I want to thank everyone who came out to the show. We had the best house yet for a Concert on Bonnie Branch. We also had some great food for a Sunday evening potluck. Thanks again everyone!
