How's that Irish Jig Band of yours?  I'd appreciate a CD from you as a reminder of Old Times.

No interest here whatsoever, just a lost piece of musical history.  RIP

A major Comedy Club producer came today with one of the Stars from the Howard Stern show to check out .  Mind you this is heavyweight used to spending $75,000 a show at the Paris in Vegas which he has a 10 year deal with and owns the Boston Comedy Club.  He was thrilled with what he saw and wants to do something with it.  I hope so as he is very savvy and is only 50 years old with a lot of energy which is what the deal takes.  I mentioned supporting acts like John Stewart, Vince Martin, Joni Mitchell, Tom Rush, Richie Havens, John Hammond, Jr. and he was enthusiastic.  I hope he does it along with my son Jason, who handles Anthony Clark (Yes Dear) and 17 other Comedians who regularly play the IMPROV for my friend Bud Freedman.  The theater showed beautifully with the houselights dimmed and just a Spot on Mike Center stage, you could almost hear the roar of laughter from a full house.  The acoustics he agreed are fantastic and any acoustic group could be heard clearly from every inch of the house right up to the sound booth without sound system.  Live Theater would be excellent as well as dance and especially Spoken Word.  This is a Real Palace of Dreams just as the Sun Reporter described it in this weekends edition of 5 pages with Full page pictures and extensive copy, in which they quote me and called me an investor, veteran showman and theater slave.  I'm very pleased with my work and  the way The Landmark Crestline Village Theater has revived from years of dormancy.  I enjoy its restoration and the result is an enhancement to my community.  I feel good about it.  I hope these young men take it over and make it the success it deserves to be.  I get that same feeling as when I started the Cafe' au Go Go in 1963 in Greenwich Village, N.Y. one of pride and excitement for the Magic yet to come.  I showed them the rest of the town and we went for a Pizza down the street from me and they said, It is the best they ever had at the New Rim Lounge in Top Town.  They then went on from here to Lake Arrowhead to check it out and Im sure they were then totally Blown Away by the Pristine Beauty of the area 5000 feet up in the sky where the air is CLEAR and good for the head.

No posts here since #666 February interest at all.......Ancient History.  No real value, especially in the stolen elements pirated in Japan and England and the lost tapes of Fred Neil languishing in The Dolphin Project office in South Miami and at Courthouse Facilities in France and Dorset, England.  Butterfield Blues Band, Muddy Waters, Tim Hardin, Karen Dalton, Jefferson Airplane, Joni Mitchell, Richie Havens, Odetta, John Mayal, B.B. King, plus others listed on the website of Tony Arnold.

Wesley, It will come back in another life, it always does.  Thanks for the flicker of interest. Its like lately there have been dozens of inclusions in books, records, internet, TV & Film about the Cafe and the sixties. Just too much to forget.  Stay well.  Nice hearing from you.  Howard

Friday morning August 1, 2003 and still here.  Amazing.  40 years ago I was building the Cafe' au Go Go and the Garrick Theater at 152 Bleecker Street in New York's Greenwich Village.  2600 performances later I sold and left for Cocoanut Grove, Florida where I stayed 14 years to work with Fred Neil and  then moved to Los Angeles where I've been ever since.

I found myself in Hollywood just of the Sunset Strip down the street from the clubs and recording studios and near Tower Records and Spago.  I worked in film and video international distribution of long form concert videos (long before the internet and MTV) for a couple of years.  I spent a lot of time with my son Sheppard working with him on his career as singer/songwriter, which took me into the various clubs on and off the strip where he and his bands would perform.  We did about 100 dates together and finally he was spotted and signed to a lucarative long term publishing contract with EMI then Rondor/Universal.  He left for England and became recognized there and has since written over 300 songs and has had a dozen or so Top Ten Hits on the European Charts plus 60 songs covered by a couple of dozen artistsl.  I left the scene to live in the mountains (Lake Arrowhead) about 90 minutes from town. I've been here over 8 years working on buying and remodeling real estate and developing a theater and a cafe'.  Though I've been somewhat removed from the business, it has come to me on several occasions taking me back into management, publishing and production.
