We loved this story because we're Los Gatans that come up to Mt. View for UCSV 2nd Monday night jams and were part of the write-up. My flannel shirted husband sips soup while playing and I pull out that blue tambourine when my fingers get tired from strumming my ukulele (just a beginning player). Hopefully your story will encourage others that would love to play and sing but are unsure or embarrassed about their abilities, to come out to Dana Street Coffee Roaster and take part -- no matter how good or how bad anyone sings or plays, they'll have a great time being there.
