Another Martini at Martuni’s

I was at Martuni’s in San Francisco again last night and I got to attend their “Piano ar 101: Mondays at Martuni’s”*, the open mic played by Joe Wicht.  Another terrifically gifted musician,  Wicht is an encouraging presence to people performing at the venue.  He brings warmth and supportiveness as well as musical inventiveness to the arrangements he builds on the fly.  And just strikes one as a lovely, charming person.  (He kept reminding me of Doug Yetter, still greatly missed by his DC-area groupies no matter how successful and fabulous his Clear Space theater in Rehoboth is!!!)

The crowd at Martuni’s consisted of people doing lovely things at all levels of talent; and they were attentive and supportive to people performing.  Here’s a link to events at Martuni’s (finally found it)!!!  I am told that the Sunday cabarets are a lot of fun. 

*Not to be confused with “Munday on Tuesday” at the Gardenia in Los Angeles.
