A Night Out in The Music City

Saturday, May 15, 2010. First stop, Douglas Corner Cafe for David Olney. This CD Release event was originally scheduled for Norm’s River Roadhouse, but as you can see from the previous slide set, it’s gonna be awhile before anybody plays at Norm’s again, so the show was restaged as a benefit for Norm’s at The Douglas Corner Cafe. We could only stay for about half of Dave’s first set, because then it was time to go to The Rutledge for Tom Mason’s Alchemy” CD release party. We got there in time to catch the opening set by The Gypsy Hombres, in whom the spirit of Django Reinhart and Stephan Grapelli is alive and well in Music City. Tom Mason came on after that and offered one of the most entertaining shows we’ve seen in a while. When it was over, a friend who’d seen Olney first as well was overheard to say, “this is the sort of night that makes your really appreciate living in Nashville…”
