March 2021 Wrapup
Treetop Solo performed by Mick Schafer. This song written by Tom Esch is usually done by a full band but is being experimented with in a solo performance. Does it work?
#mondaymusic with Attic Jam. If there's a will there's a way. We found a new space in the house to work and play in. It's fun in the attic.

Nothing soothes like some Soul Shuffle. Here's another experiment to see if a band song can be done solo.
Attic Rainbow. In the Akimbo Creative Workshop there has been a lot of discussion about the importance of genres. Will the Mick Schafer Band commit more to the Blues? Here's one of Mick's favorite blues originals, Rainbow.
Bono (U2): “Music can change the world because it can change people.”
The Blues are calling. Mick has been experimenting with arranging previously band songs into solo versions. This is the first attempt with Astara and with some scat.
This song is dedicated to Priscilla. The scarf Mick is wearing was made by hand by Priscilla. This song She Woke Up was inspired by Priscilla, may she rest in peace.
"Ask not what the world needs, but ask rather what makes you come alive; because what the world needs is people truly alive…” Howard Thurman
