So much fun at the Globe & the Haviland Club!

So we ran into Graeme at the Sportman’s Club on Saturday after leaving the Globe afternoon jam. ¬†The boys at the Globe rocked as per usual – what a great bunch of guys ūüôā – I met a new trumpet player by the name of Neal, super-fun with some nice schmaltz on the horn. ¬†Everyone suggested heading over to the Sportsman for another blues jam so how could we resist?

But first let me tell you about where we ate! ¬†Just underneath Baba’s Lounge is a terrific restaurant (owned by the same people) called Cedars Eatery. ¬†Oh my god the food is good there! ¬†We had an appetizer of tomatoes and halloume cheese that was out of this world and as a nice surprise they included tomatoes with garlic sauce (the kind they put on falafel) … you have to try that! ¬†Thanks so much to Lili for recommending this restaurant

The Sportsmen Club is just next door so that’s where we headed and who was standing at the bar but our buddy Graeme – a guitar player we have hung out with at the Globe a few times – he very generously invited us to sit in on his Sunday show at the Haviland Club the next day. ¬†We figured we would be on the road to Ontario so figured we couldn’t make it but the weather got in our way and Charlottetown is way closer to Darnley than Ottawa is so that’s where we went and I am so glad that we did!

Not only did I get to meet and play with some of the best musicians on PEI (Scott Parsons, Dean Dunsford, Roger Greaves and of course Graeme whose last name, if you haven’t noticed, escapes me :)) but I also got to reconnect with Haviland Club Manager, Jamie Larkin. ¬†We first met at the Orange Lunchbox in August after a long night of music and old guys defending their last beer.

I really hope to play with all these guys again … boy, what a great crew, terrific musicians AND wonderful people.
