About Face Preview of Museum Show April 18

Many thanks to all The About Face Artists that extended their hospitality to me when I popped in to preview their work for the Big gala to be held April 18th at the Columbia Museum of Art on Main St. Columbia SC. For further details about the Soiree du Soleil Gala just click it.

The close up painting shown is by Bonnie Goldberg, one of my favorite local artists. The silhouette of the city in the background was painting by David West and various art work is shown on the wall here by the About Face Artists.
The event is sure to be talked about by one and all attendees as it is in conjunction with the wonderful Turner to Cezanne exhibit currently showing at the Main St, Gallery in Columbia, SC.

Jeff Liberty Plays at Lulabelles Fri. April 3

Columbia, SC Coming to Lulabelle's for a repeat performance

Friday April 3, 2009 (outside if the weather's right) 7PM

(just off Harbison Blvd. across the street from Ryan's)

Jeff Liberty will be playing the blues again at Lulabelles. For all of you that missed this performer the last time around you have another chance to listen to the hot scorching blues; played by Columbia's best blues man; Mr. Jeff Liberty! If you have heard him before, you know what I am talking about. This guy can really play that guitar and sing, too. I was truly blown away by his original songs as well as his performances of blues favorites.

You have to hear "Girl Next Door" or "It Feels Like Rain" and you too will be blown away by such sheer genius. Jeff keeps the audience as he switches gears to a funny little dialectic he wrote about an obsessive woman; "If you ain't crazy, why do you go crazy, every time; I call you crazy?" This is done in a fun light hearted way and Jeff does a little narrative setting the song up. Another one he sets up well through narrative his true to life song called; "Disturbin' the Peace". To sample Jeff Liberty's music and see what all the excitement is about check out his website at

See ya' at Lulabelles.

Yours truly;
