Starting with Jimi Yamagishi, our co-host, who’s voice and lyrics always cut deep. Then, Shanara, a new member from Chicago, she sang with such beautiful strength, and lyrics that cut to the core and made us think about ourselves and our own strengths. J.Walker followed with his poem Uniqueness, which asked of us to continue to think about who.we.are. Gilli Moon, our Songsalive! President, followed with some new songs from her upcoming album. Always a treat. Diana Weynard and her bassist (yep, Dracula) performed next, and was truly a highlight of the evening. Lastly, Paul Rasmusson sang some Nashville-esque tunes and really picked up the pace with all of us hands clapping till the last beat. A couple of open mic-ers lent their new tunes, and we wrapped up nicely by 9pm with time still for those who wanted to hit another Halloween party or two.
