to 4: Stop Breakin’ Down Blues (a Robert Johnson song) I Can Walk (same melody but completely different singing & lyrics Dan seems to enjoy making lyrics up as he is singing) Orchestra They also rehearsed 3 new songs « new song #1 », « new song # 2 » and « Get Down » which, I think, sounds very good live.

L’Escapade, capacity: 500 people (sold out) Again, it was excellent. My highlights: Dan’s smile throughout the show, the new song with Dan on his beautiful brand new Fender Stratocaster, the audience’s response and my students’ very positive comments after the show.
