In a NY state of mind. The last couple of months, I’ve been burying myself all up into the live music scene of my beloved New York. Jumping on stages everywhere I can, and soaking up the bottomless well of talents, old and new, in this city that really never sleeps. I mean, really. No. Sleep. These are just some of the memories I’ve savored.

Then this happened. Trying to hide in the corner, but MamaFunk RockStar, Nona Hendryx, was not having any of that. I love vibing with her on stage, anytime.
After the show, there are the shenanigans, always. Nona Hendryx had just ripped up the stage, as per the norm. Maritri, and The Soulfolk Experience were as magnetic and fabulous as usual. Then, yes, the shenanigans commence backstage.

You know what. Just dig up into what I been falling off up onto this fall. Here are a gazillion pictures. Have at it.
