Sorry for the long delay.

I am very flattered by this review, only the second one we've gotten. 
I fear my forte is playing, not publicity, though I am looking to 
change that quite soon.

Really, the point of this whole exercise is to give loopers a place 
to loop, rather than to generate publicity or sales.  Having a nice 
long weekly gig where I can stretch out and try things I'd never dare 
try in a 50-minute club set is priceless to me and I think to a lot 
of the other regulars there.

Do drop by, any or all of you, if you are in the vicinity on a 
Saturday afternoon!
