Bluesy Stephanie plus open mic at the Bridge Street Inn

Bluesy Stephanie plays at the Bridge Street Inn. She wowed the small group of Cambria’s who were fortunate enough to enjoy this special UK artist. Open mic had stellar performances by Allison and Brandon. Followed by an after hours party at Linn’s and Mozzi’s. Ask the Bridge Street Inn about playing a house show.

Francesca’s Word Salad, Brandon Follett and Russell Arnott at the Bridge Street Inn

Francesca’s Word Salad performs, ‘Polly’s Birds.”

Russell is a much better videographer.  I chose this video taken several days after the Bridge Street Inn show instead of using my own footage.

Brandon Follett performs, “What’s that You Say Nose?”

Russell Arnott explains why, “The Best Animal Ever is an Octopus.”

The March 4 show at the Bridge Street Inn was a success.  Francesca’s Word Salad wowed the crowd with her beautiful voice and funny provocative lyrics.  Russell Arnott kept the crowd entertained with his octopus slide show and knowledge.  Brandon Follett reminded folks their food should always have fun before being eaten with his catchy Run Run Pig lyrics.
