Hambone’s, Saturday Night

Hambone’s Saturday Night-Lawrenceville neighborhood on Butler Street.

Steve said,  come on let’s go -so I put my book down and layered up in warm clothes and we headed down. Ordered a draft. Settled into a booth and listened to some great musicians take the chill off the almost winter night.


Christopher Mark Jones  and the Roots Ensemble 

Vince Camut on pedal steel

Mark Perna on Bass

Eric Kurtzrock on drums and vocals

And joined by Mr. Marc Reisman on harps in the third and final set



We ran into Mr. And Mrs. Claus on the sidewalk in front of Hambone’s as we went to our cars img_1776
