At the Hoboken Historical Museum tomorrow night.

“kitchenTablemusic” reunion

ktm-host-tom-vincent-hoboken.jpgWhat do the following musicians have in common: the Waitresses’ Chris Butler, national critics’ darling Freedy Johnston, and Hoboken’s tex-mexabilly rocker Gene D. Plumber?

All honed their diverse songwriting and performing styles in the “kitchenTablemusic” showcase for Hoboken singer-songwriters in the late ’80s/early ’90s.

This Saturday at 7:30 pm, regular performers Kate Jacobs, John Sonntag and Greg Cagno, plus Chris Butler, will join host and organizer Tom Vincent at the Museum to reminisce and entertain. Admission is $5, free for Museum members.

The showcase helped a loose collective of singer-songwriters simultaneously entertain and learn their craft by competing for a slot in the weekly series, first held in 1989 – 1990 at the bar Live Tonight. The series resumed almost seven years later at the same club, which operated under a new name, Zell’s, every Wednesday night from February 1997 to February 1998. (It’s now the Whiskey Bar.)

I had a great time. I wasn’t here back then but lots of my friends were and to see them reminisce made for a beautiful time. Tom Vincent’s a gem. The Towed by Opie song knocked me out with laughter. Funny stuff! When’s the DVD coming out Tom?


This show was a great time!
Too bad mostly oldtimers showed up for it.
Hoboken could use a music scene.
Congrats to Tom & all who made this a memorable event.
