Stephane Wrembel @ Pilsener Haus & Biergarten, Hoboken 8/31/11

My first Hoboken music!  I have tried to get to Maxwell's ... it just hasn't worked out yet.  I now see it's not so far, L to 6th then 3 stops on the PATH.  Of course, this new Beergarten is about 1/2 hour walk after that, but it was a nice night and I love to walk.  A friend emailed that day to let me know about this no cover show, so I figured why not.

It's a great place to hang out, eat, and drink.  That's the draw, so almost no one is interested in the band.  About 7 of us were up front enjoying the music.  It was great and it wasn't that hard to drown out the loud murmur of talking in the background.  It reminded me of Doma only massively bigger.

It turns out the gig pays well.  The music is sponsored by one of the beer companies, so that's how it works.

I was very happy with it.  The music was excellent!

From Facebook:

We're pleased to announce our first live music: world-renowned gypsy musician Stephane Wrembel! Check out his web site & videos. He's worked with artists as diverse as Patti Smith and David Grisman. A fantastic guitarist in the tradition of Django Reinhart. Wednesday, August 31st, 8:30pm to midnight. Come join us!
This song is a theme running through Woody Allen's new movie, "Midnight in Paris". He was looking for a typical French Parisian song that would fit the atmosphere and soul of Paris, and this is what I composed. Click here to purchase the FULL song on CDBABY. Enjoy!
