Collaboration Night was a huge success, with people getting together on stage to
share and add to each other’s music! Whether it was Mario Di Sandro bringing nearly
the entire audience on stage for his song and Mario playing hot electric lead on
Alex Jimenez’s, or the Sugar Ponies backing Mick Shaffer and vice-versa or the
plexus of Wesley Woo, Hyejin Yu and Chris Cerrato, people combining their talents
for the music and for the big fun was the order of the day.

Brandon Zahursky performed at the Red Devil for the first time and definitely turned heads, Addison Nimrod took a much-missed metal turn, and Levi Levitt, Jordan Carp, Tom McBride, Rick Hardin and Johnny J. Blair had standout sets and Bill Fried struck hard again with “I’m Sorry.”

The feature, Lauren O’Connell, definitely won hearts with her sweetly melodic and angry writing style and attitudinal performance. A pumped-as-ever host, KC Turner and the new format kept things moving along nicely for the large audience, Gumbo Dave was at his Mardi Gras best with gumbo and great stuffed breads, now called Cajun Eclairs, the drinks flowed and a bon temps was had by all!
