“John Schmitt celebrated his birthday (and noted that two members of his band/guests had birthdays one day on either side of the show) by playing at The Living Room. He had a full band and some special guests. We don’t need an excuse (like a mere birthday) to come see John Schmitt. If we can make it, we’ll be there. In fact, during the show, he announced that he’s playing Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2, this coming Thursday, at 7pm (also a full-band show). It’s his first time at Rockwood 2, and we’re already committed to being there (you should come too!). Let’s review why we go see John as often as we can: fantastic voice excellent guitar player terrific band (though he’s superb solo) wonderful songwriter as nice a human being as you could want to meet! All of the above were there in spades last night. An incredible set, thanks John.”
