Aspinwall Beans “N” Cream was the scene last Saturday. Cool decor, lots of record album covers and posters and photos and Beatles memorabilia adorn the walls of the coffee house. Fun to watch a lava lamp in the corner. Peter added an expertly played instrumental combining three classic jig and reel tunes, complete with an occasional foot tap that made one want to get up and dance along to the beat. Peter invited harmonica player Marc Reisman to join him onstage for a few numbers and the two paired nicely. Peter will open for singer-songwriter Jeffrey Gaines, whom the Chicago Tribune calls “extraordinary and timeless,” at Club Cafe on Feb. 26 at 7 pm. Check out Peter King website and see the photos I shot for his latest CD cover. For tickets write to firstname.lastname@example.org ($13 in advance). If you live locally, Peter teaches guitar lessons privately and at Chatam University. You can contact him and sign up now to learn to play away the winter blues.

Thanks, Ruth. You are an exceptional photographer — even when you’re not taking pictures of me! Seriously, I look forward to your photos everyday, whatever the subject.
CD photos are great, will make a point to hear his music
This picture would make a great ad. You captured all the emotion. Am I too old to learn to play guitar?
I’m a bit behind, but so glad I did not miss this post! As frequently as I have met Peter at your home, Ruth, I did not realize that he played and taught guitar! I have been to the Aspinwall Cafe, but also did not realize that was a venue for Live performances! I shall put Feb 26th on my calendar and hope the weather cooperates! In case Peter sees this, I hope he is able to bring his harmonica friend! Tony M. of the Nightside Jazz WDUQ featured Toot Thielmanns (spelling) earlier this week!! A great Post!! Thank you!!1
