So, a couple of weeks ago this evening...

I joined my friends, Cindy and Elizabeth, at a House Concert being held at the home of one of my bookclub friends, Janelle, and her husband, Michael.

The singer/ guitarist, 25 year old San Franciscan, Megan Slankard, writes her own music plus covers the music of others, both of which she sings in a of kind blusey jazz.

The night included food and drink which Janelle served up beautifully, and much delightful entertainment.

Mike and Janelle's house backs up to a firestation_library complex. Janelle, thoughtfully, let the fire guys know that she and Mike would be doing a house concert, it did get pretty loud since Megan was all electrified, and seven or so of them, happily, decided to join us for a while. After 45 minutes or so, they did get a call and away they went in their, what I am sure was a, gleaming, red, truck. No alcholo was confumed by any of them.

We had such a terrific time and, if the jar at the front door was any indication, Megan did just fine for herself, also selling several CDs, including one to me :)

A little vid from YouTube, I chose this one because of all of the ones I checked out, this one reminded me the most of how she held herself with us, weirdly shy, a little nervous, intense,

It really was, perfect weather, and Megan was such a lovely woman. Having the firemenz show up only added to the festivities:)

What a lovely, original evening! So nice that your friends got to play patron to a young talent. You guys in San Jose are practically Medici's!

I love that the firemen got to stop by for 45 minutes in the middle of their shift. So very cool. FanSee

It was awesome and not just in looks alone. Janelle and Mike, plus all the potluckers, did a great job!
