if you are reading this blog, you are among the elite.

That's not to say "nobody reads this blog". Oh no, not at all. That is not to say that, at all. To say that "nobody reads this blog" would mean that you, dear reader, are "nobody" and that is a vile and foul assertion if ever there was one, because you know that you are the cat's pajamas, you are where it's at, the real deal: yes indeedy-- I don't have to tell you that, and of course you should not let anyone tell you otherwise.

So you either came across this by serendipitous happenstance, or because you are interested in electronic music: but either way you are in the elite, the vanguard.

Played last nite at Jammin Java. The audience is broad. The music is mostly original, 'coffeehouse poetry sung to acoustic guitar' with your occasional balladeer/folk/bluegrass/celtic/alt-rock unplugged duo, trio or quartet; so what I do is off the track in comparison, but there are others out of that norm, eclectic solo instrumentalists, violinists, blues harmonica, so it's a nice mix.

Virginia is big on folk, bluegrass and more pure roots country related music, and it's interesting that even if you don't like that kind of music it somehow "resonates" well in Virginia, particularly in the summer. The performers are mostly very good. The acts can be kind of similar, so it's good to have a break with an oddball like Utenzil. The performers that aren't as good are either starting out and kind of likeable-goofy or are 'songwriters that sing' and the audience is very encouraging, comprised of clusters of supporters for the various performers. People say good things to me after I play.
