Magical Moment 451, "Some German in Brooklyn"

I was invited to play at Soule Restaurant in Brooklyn for their weekly "Jazz Night." The evening consisted of me playing and/or singing for 3 hours during the dinner rush. It had been a while since I performed for that long. My favorite kind of gig though, is playing my little keyboard off in a corner somewhere while people are half paying attention to me/half eating their supper. It's just such a relaxed atmosphere where I have the freedom to choose whatever I feeling like playing or singing. 

This is a video of "Bei Mir Bist Du Shon." I played this about an hour into my set and it was the first number that people applauded for, which caught me off guard at the end of the song! It was a great evening and I ended up having a lot of support from friends who came out for the occasion. That was such a comfort to me since Eddie (my faithful fan) couldn't make it that night. Enjoy the video!
