This blog will mark the first part of a transition for Relish Bar & Grill, a venue often mentioned as it has been key to my musical journey. After well over a decade at Danforth and Cedarvale, the club is pulling up roots and moving west to 511 Danforth, near Logan.
I was fortunate to be there for The Last Stir, where I performed my own Relish Song, probably for the last time. Here is a demo version.
It was also perfect closure as I finally got to play my cover of fellow traveller Michael Cuddy‘s excellent Sink or Swim for him. Despite a false start and forgotten lyrics, I conveyed the essence of the new arrangement and Michael seemed to like it. It will be going into the FatC set list as my featured cover.
This weekend, the new Relish (2.0) opens new doors on Saturday and I intend to be there. Check back next time for how that went.
Until the, be well!
