What a great night! The “To Haiti with love” benefit was so much fun — early in the evening kids dancing, mid evening music lovers loving the music, and the late night crowd totally into the vibes.

The participating restaurants were cooking – in fact the whole town seemed very much alive.

Petaluma Pete was cranking out ragtime early on, out front of the Mystic, sounding like a million bucks, with all tips going to Doctors Without Borders — that’s where all funds collected went — and a heartfelt thank you to all who attended, and all who so generously donated.

Shennon and Ken O’Donnell — what magnificent people — long may McNear’s Mystic theatre reign! what a treasure these people are and what a gift to all of us having a world class venue like the Mystic.

Tonight (Saturday Feb. 20) is the Blair Hardman Jazz Party at the Tradewinds in Cotati — I’ll be playing — if you’re on your computer between now (5 PM) and 9PM – shame on you! get your dancing gear on and come join us. It’s 8 bucks –and it is a PARTY!
