Brewed Attitude
Hamilton, N.J.

Dom played his first-ever long feature show at a Central Jersey venue on a stormy Saturday night.  A couple dozen brave folks paddled out to an infant coffeeshop right outside of Trenton for an intermission-less two hours of music and cafe fare.

Brewed Attitude was offering free samples of "Blues Brothers" flavored biscotti (made with blueberries and yogurt chips).  Of course, this gave Dom an excruciatingly bad segue into every blues song of the night.  Be thankful there weren't free samples of rock candy.

Aside from a pair of Bob Dylan songs that followed "Bright, Full Moon" (the song that vaguely references two of Dylan's well-known tunes), the show was entirely Dom's originals.  Haven't had a show like that in a while, and it was fun to do again!

For the first time in the new "play the harmonica with the guitar" phase that Dom is going through, the show opened with a harp-enhanced song:  Dom added some measures to "Hum a Few Bars" to accommodate the extra sound.
