LOL and All That Jazz...

The last Piccolo Spoleto Jazz Evening for 2008 upstairs at Mistral's ended on a high note. Literally.

Bobbie Storm sang up a storm as she has been doing in Charleston for the last four decades. She was one of the first jazz performers I enjoyed when I came back to Charleston in 1993.

Back then she sang at places like Chef & Clef and Acme Bar & Grill (Think global/Drink local). Very fitting that Mistral's fairly new upstairs setting was her venue.

Another music place I have found to be very enjoyable is Mad River, the former Seaman's Chapel on Market at East Bay. The room is perfect with fine acoustics and a wait staff eager to make your visit a good one.

Jazz, Blues...and comedy. These are a few of my favorite things and the comedic Finale at Theater 99 was, as always, a treat.

Upright Citizens Brigade, the touring group down from NYC, demonstrated there MIGHT be humor in a visit to the OB/GYN.

The UCB also observed during their stay that Charlestonians loved their city and loved to drink. Looking just on my row, I guess I'd have to agree.

The home team of The Have Nots had fun "making sausage" on stage - in English and Spanish.

The script for all the shows there is blank paper and fertile minds. Wow.

I'm about to wrap up my stint as a SpoJo (citizen journalist covering Spoleto Piccolo) and suggest you take a look at the home base for all the coverage by staff and we humble SpoJos. Thank you.

Saw you up front and center at ZZ Top last night. Looking forward to reading your impressions on that show.

My joy was having my camera legal when I was sitting that close up. And those beards! Yikes.
