Sometimes when a musician plays to a small audience they wonder why they don't just do it in the privacy of their own home. Last night was a nice reminder for me that the answer is; "you never know who might come into the club at any minute."

A couple sat down in front of the Shinhackers on the big new fancy stage there at the Eton House last night. They seemed to like the music and we were happy to have some people other than the barflys (who we love) listening too.

It turns out to be one of Canada' top bluegrass banjoists Duncan Fremlin. Duncan has been a longtime member of Whiskey Jack and you can hear them on the Tommy Hunter show on youtube and they still play around town.

anyways, he is a very cool guy and I was happy to play song songs for him and his wife Karen.

Remember, you never know who is going to walk into the club.

It is Thursday here in the big smoke. That means I am performing with the Shinhackers at the Eton House tonight from 930-1130pm.

It is only a couple steps east of the Pape subway station on the Danforth subway line. Come on out and meet all the characters that work and live there; Phil the emcee, Will the bartender (wears his sunglasses 24/7) and Tommy smilin' behind the bar. If you really get into it you might get to meet one of the locals (upstairs) like Mike or Chicken Leg. Never a dull moment, always a little weird.
