The Gaslight: The DUO started early, and managed to trap the patrons while dining. What started as subtle eyerolls and muttering, ended with applause, smiles, and compliments. A marvelous night for all.

AJ Cafe: Been some time since the DUO made their way to this fine establishment, but after an exceptional meal on the house, the bar filled up and we proceeded to have a marvelous night. For all.

Bronx Zoo Boo at the Zoo: It's the Zoo. The DUO plays two shows. The People listens. The Sea Lions listen. The LORD is pleased. Twas a couple of overcast rainy days, but a marvelous time....well, you know.
