Patches & Gretchen CD Release Party

Saturday October 26, 2013 - Even Break Gallery

Patches & Gretchen Throw a CD Release Bash

     Patches And Gretchen celebrated the release of their latest CD; “Who The Hell is Richard Manuel” at the Even Break Gallery in South Minneapolis last night and a great time was had by all.    Although my life flashed before me as I was s-l-o-w-l-y inching my way up the front stairs, once I made it, everything was fine. 
     Now this blog will not be a review of the music since I was higher than a giraffe’s ASS and with ear plugs and all the meeting, greeting and camaraderie, I couldn’t focus solely on the band but they were grooving and everyone was enjoying it.  You could tell that a lot of work went into making this evening an enjoyable experience.  Good food, good wine, good music.  Barry Thomas Goldberg attended and sang a couple of cover songs with the band and then Arnie Fogel joined him for a couple more.  I know there were probably a lot of other people in attendance that I knew but honestly I was in a very pleasant fog.  This used to be at least a weekly occurrence for me but due to crappy health it’s now a rare event and I pick them very carefully.  The clincher came when I got a personal invitation from Gretchen herself, how can I pass that up? 
     Patches & Gretchen performed on “Live From Studio 5!” last Wednesday and you can listen to that show from anywhere on the planet just by clicking here:

Thank God after it was over, it was much easier going DOWN those stairs!
