Chicago and PizzaBorelli’s Pizzeria - 2124 West Lawrence Avenue
Years ago I stopped by an open mic at Borelli’s Pizza and made a big impression, so host Trisha Ricketts invited me back for an all-star bash.
A wonderful evening with Joel Brussell, Kurt Acton, Janet Beutner, and Mike O. Miss Anthropic was there in her secret identity singing along to all the words.
Part of an evening of local talent benefit for community radio station WVLP.
No snow! We had “a man who doesn’t understand why the hamburger is only helped and not the hot dog,” Tedward, Janet Beutner, and the amazing laid back hiphop jazz band Rhymer Educator.
Off to a good start despite the winter storm! The audience was wonderful and the performers amazing.
In town at 103.1 FM or worldwide at WVLP.org.
I may have had a little too much time on my hands visiting family over Thanksgiving… but that’s how legends are born.
I have an original song and some other music bits in this documentary by Laura Force Scruggs about the iconic late novelty and toy store and the magic man behind it. I was the opening act for the screening with a half hour set.
