Claudia Schmidt In Concert wsg Steve Deasy
Saturday, February 20, 2010
8:00pm - All Ages
2207 Pinecrest Drive

Ferndale, MI, USA 48220
Other Info
Claudia Schmidt has been perfecting her craft of performing for almost four decades. It is a quirky and wonderful hodge-podge (her word!) of music, poetry, story, laughter. drama, and celebrating the moment. Work in clubs, theaters, festivals, TV, radio has added depth and dimension, and since she has always included her original work along with very personal versions of the work of others, what you get is a unique look at the world from someone who says what she sees with clarity, humor, and wonder. The San Francisco Bay Guardian said: Schmidt's shows are a lot like falling in love. You never know what's going to happen next, chances are it's going to be wonderful, every moment is burned into your memory and you know you'll never be the same again." More succinctly, Garrison Keiilor said "when Claudia sings a song, it stays sung"

This show is in a private home and is "by invitation only". You must RSVP to attend this concert which will be limited to 40 attendees. Suggested donation is $15 (or $10-$20 sliding scale) with all proceeds going to the artists. Claudia will have a brand new CD, so you might want to plan to bring some extra $ for that. There will be snacks, coffee, tea and water provided, and if you would like to bring something to share, by all means do so, we will set it on the table.

RSVP by emailing info@stevedeasy.com or call 248.990.5268

Steve Deasy – show in Pontiac, Fri. 2/19/10 & Banjo Jokes

Just a reminder about the show in Pontiac this Friday.  For info see below.  I know in my original note the other artist was going to be Barb Barton from Lansing, but they must have changed it, and it will be someone called Banjo Jim and Ricky.  Which puts me in mind of two banjo jokes:

Question: How will we know that the stage is level on Friday?

Answer: Banjo Jim will be drooling out of both sides of his mouth.

Question: How will we be able to tell if Ricky has perfect pitch?

Answer: If he can toss the banjo into the dumpster from 20 yards out and hit Mark Iannace’s accordian. &

I’m looking forward to meeting Banjo Jim and Ricky and seeing you all there.
