Join the Red Wheelbarrow Poets at GainVille Café Friday, Nov. 22 as we present the fine poet FRAN LOMBARDI and a special feature, our third annual birthday party for JACO PASTORIUS, the avatar of the bass guitar.
Fran is a member of the Red Wheelbarrow Poets’ weekly writing workshop and has had her poetry published in our most recent anthology.
Our Jaco b’day salute joins a tradition that has been ongoing every year since 1997. We will have music from THE THREE BASSES (bass guitars, that is) of PETER McCULLOUGH, BILLY CARRION JR. and MARK FOGARTY. And we’re hoping Jaco himself will drop in, through the miracle of technology.
After that we will have our Bring Your A Game open mike with generous reading times. Join us for a special night!
7 PM, 17 Ames Ave., Rutherford.
A $6 cover includes coffee/tea and dessert.
