From Danny on the new Relish gig:
“when you have a house gig you never know from week to week how it might be. Sometimes it can be like day old bread, other times fresh as a daisy. Today was exceptional. The whole room was filled with music and love. We are reinvented new and better. Here’s something I learned. Don’t play all your cards in the first deal. Then, when you go really deep, keep turning up high cards with every hand.”
