July Feature: Stretching the Truth
This months featured act is a great Blues band, Stretching the Truth. The band is made up of four fine players familiar to Open Mic regulars: the one and only Sonny Speed, on keyboards; Juan Becerra, on guitar; Dave Becheldor, on bass; and, on harmonica, Dennis Schebetta. They will rock the Caffe, and make for a great jam to close out the night.
