It’s always wonderful for family and friends to get together
for any occasion. Love and marriage are one of the grandest reasons. Tamir and
soon to be lovely wife Sherry are on the small stage at Clancy’s Crab Shack
glowing as they make their beautiful musical love together. Some people in the
audience have traveled from all parts of the United States to be here to witness
the magic of music, love and a bond that will last forever.
How delightful it must be to bond on so many different
levels in life. Music, relationship, love, peace and family are so important
and are such essential elements for forming an enduring marital bond that will
last until the end of time. I have never seen a man so happy, so proud and so
eager to be entering the beginning of another beautiful stage in life. Well, if
I were a bell I’d go ding dong ding dong ding as well!
“Falling in Love with Love” and many other songs of love
were the obvious theme for this special occasion. There is so much joy in Tamir’s
playing and Sherry’s voice on bass works hand in hand with Tamir. Yes, a
shameless pun but, I can’t help it. Tamir verbally acknowledges that Sherry is
the love of his life and at that moment you hear all of the women in the room
start cooing in those high pitched voices. All of the men are instantly out
done and become second in line to Tamir, the king of romantic love!
I saw Tamir at Roberta Gambarini’s gig at Clancy’s a few
months back and he had the same glow of love then. I sought his advice on
entering the new world of marriage and he was kind, confident and excited about
all the possibilities that it had to offer. I knew I was talking to the right
Sunday, August 1st 2004 will be a day of musical
love never to forget! In celebration of the event, Tiramisu and chocolate cake
were consumed and enjoyed by all. A gift to the audience for sharing is such a
Hey Tamir, on Sunday it will truly be you, the night and the
music! Enjoy life, love and happiness forever.
I know, I know, what on earth is Wizard Finger? Well it is
an event that happens on the last Thursday of every month at a very small place
in Hollywood at the corner of Hollywood Blvd. and Kenmore.
If you were to drive there, I’m sure that you might say “Where the heck am I
and what am I doing here”. But, if you drop all of your preconceived notions of
the neighborhood, walk into a loft full people that you don’t know and pay just
$5, you will be delighted with music, comedy and something that will blow your
mind, Fire Dancing!
comedians and are extremely funny. They do monologs on events from their daily
lives and it is unbelievable how much you can’t stop laughing. They invite guest
brave the stage at the Finger!
The crowd is usually made up of all of their friends, mostly
eclectic types and virgins who get the experience of the Finger for the first
time. Don’t worry, you don’t literally get the Finger, or the experience that
you might be thinking of but, you do have a great deal of fun, smiling,
laughing and seeing talent that you may not see at some ordinary venue.
Every week, these cats come down and lay the most powerful
percussion as the musical foundation and transition for all of the acts. This
week, a girl walked in and said, “I’m a belly dancer” and Jill and Kara said,
“Well, get on up there!” The impromptu performance swayed, rolled and spilled
imaginative snake charming sex all over the stage. Hydeus Kiatta was there
performing some of her brand new compositions to track. No band with her this
time but, she still delivered in fine Kiattian style.She also sang freestyle
with the percussionist as they laid the bed of Eastern rhythms for the
absolutely, most exciting and amazing performance of the Fire Dancers!
Kumala and her sister Hanna are close each performance with
their highly tranined Fire Dancers. They are yoga instructors who teach yoga in Runyan Canyon
Park for free everyday.
They also teach and perform Fire Dancing and it is an experience that is so
beautiful and exotic, you will be left speechless with you mouth wide open. You can check them out at www.indrayoga.com.
This is a low key event but, you can be invited if you like!
Just email Jill at firstname.lastname@example.org, come on down and get the Finger! Their
next performance will be on August 26th, the last Thursday of every
month. Believe me, you will love it!
