Anyone with a tiny amount of common sense realises that Pat works very hard touring, composing and recording. These constant, boring requests for him to tour everywhere, without pause are pathetic. "Why no dates in Dortmund, Pat?"... "Please Pat come to Ipswich!!" The Facebook page is even worse. Get a grip people. Oh, and btw, he (Pat) doesn’t read any of it.

Bookmark and Share Thanks for the extra info, bluepno. I think we have a match! You have a talented group of friends. I occasionally see Grayson Hugh in the area, most recently sitting in with guitarist Jeff Pevar at Black-Eyed Sally’s. Thanks for the tip about the Other Orchestra. We may check it out. Joseph Celli left Real Art Ways nearly 25 years ago. It’s still a good place, but they focus less on music than they once did.

Bookmark and Share Hi Rob, It sounds like a match. That was probably Kris Adams on vocals. She has three highly rated, well reviewed and hard to find cd’s. That group had some good friends and great players. I think they have posted some youtube vids from back in the day. Grayson Hugh ran with that gang also. If you are in the New Britain area on Tues. March 15th, Mike Palin is putting the Other Orchestra back together for a gig at a place called Black Eyed Sally’s. Being up in Boston I miss a lot of the old gang and from these memories a good club scene. Does Joe Celli still run RAW ( Real Art Ways) out of Hartford? Sorry for hijacking the thread barley...But, I am trying to get perspective.

Bookmark and Share bluepno: Haiku? That sounds familiar, but 26+ years later, I’m not sure. Female singer on lead vocals was very good, as was the whole band.

Bookmark and Share Thanks, bluepno. Bob Gatzen really added a ton to Hartford’s night life back then. A couple favorites were seeing him with Pat Metheny and Miroslav Vitous at the Lit Club and with John Scofield and Steve Swallow at the Old State House. When my wife and I were engaged, we asked Bob for a recommendation on a band for our wedding, and he hooked us up with a core group who taught at the studio that included guitarist Tom Majesky. Great band.

Bookmark and Share Hi Rob, me friends and I studied at Creative Music for years. Bob was responsible for so many great evenings in Hartford at Mad Murphy’s and bringing in Jack DeJohnette , Badal Roy, dave liebman and Ralph Towner for clinics and such. Great times with creative people.Back to the Pat show....I think it may have been Simsbury but I never went out there much. Good call. This would’ve been’74-’77.

Bookmark and Share bluepno: What CT bar are you referring to from the 70’s? Possibly Gemini’s in Simsbury with Bob Gatzen on drums? We were fortunate to have Pat appear fairly frequently in CT in a variety of settings during the 70’s and early 80’s. And Bob Gatzen was responsible for many of those appearances.

Bookmark and Share Barley - Pat may perform 10 - 20 gigs in Germany or Spain, but might miss out the UK altogether. Maybe what people would like to see is a few less gigs in one country and a few in under-represented ones. I’m certainly hoping for a UK visit this year, even if it means a 500-mile round trip.

Bookmark and Share Barley, pretty please??? Ok,I agree with you but when I saw the 99 >00 Trio reformed and touring I kind of lost it to pure fandom. I usually don’t do that, sorry.

Bookmark and Share Living in New England Pat was notorious for doing 400 gigs a year back in the 70’s. He has earned his popular demand. Let me just say seeing him play with a bar band in the backwoods of Connecticut really was a magical and exceptional music experience. I remember him playing a Hendrix tribute that evening just to tear the souls out of all those biker dudes.
