On the last Sunday of the month, Tom Clark, who runs The Treehouse at 2A, turns the programming over to Monica “Li’l Mo” Passin. The result is the series called the Field of Stars (originally held at the late and lamented Banjo Jim’s).
Tonight’s show is a doozy, with at least 32 musicians – solos, duos and combos – performing a generous helping of songs from musical families such as The Everly Brothers, The Andrews Sisters, The Beach Boys, Sly and The Family Stone, and well, you get the idea.
Joining Li’l Mo tonight will be Dina Regine, Gene Casey, Sherryl Marshall, Emily Duff, Scott Aldrich, Deborah Berg, Lisa Lowell, Drina Seay, Tone Johansen, Dave Foster, Charles Roth, Elena Skye, Boo Reiners, Rembert Block, Cid Scantlebury, Leslie Wagner, Erica Smith, Lizzie Edwards, Bibi Farber, Patti Rothberg, Mike Fornatale, Lane Steinberg, Banjo Lisa, Jason Charles Walker, Anne Husick, Phil Gammage, Tom Clark, Crystal Durant, Michelle Starrs Bissell, Paul Pimsler, Gardy Louis, Todd Louis, Tom Shad, and more.
The fun gets going at 8:30pm, but it’s going to be crowded up at The Treehouse, so getting there early is highly recommended.
