Abbott Brothers Band at Altu’s Restaurant

Saturday, July 23rd, 2005

AltuSaturday our band, Abbott Brothers, played at Altu’s restaurant. We had a wonderful time! Our friend, Edna, popped by with her washboard and played a few tunes with us. She sometimes jams with us, and Barbara gave her a call to let her know we’d love to see her at the show. That was great fun!

For some reason I was so into the singing that I forgot to ask anyone to take pictures of us. Go figure!

Oh… by the way, Anne Erickson of the Lansing State Journal focused on Altu’s and the Abbott Brothers, in her column this week. If you still have your Thursday paper/What’s On section, it’s toward the back of the section, under the subheading “A new dining experience.” The good news is that it is also readable on the web (scroll down a bit).

There were no pictures of restaurant or band, but Anne did a nice job with the article. For the record, Altu’s holds 50 diners… I guessed too low when I was interviewed. It’s very cozy in any case.

Since we got no photos at the concert tonight, here is one of my favorite photos of my dear friend, Altu. I took this photo at a restaurant in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, probably in the first few days of the year 2005. She laughs easily, and this photo looks like she is ready to laugh a bit. I love that sparkle in her eyes!
