  •  What is most memorable about your high school years?

The time spent with others that were more into the music scene than sports, or any other social activity. From high school dance bands, garage bands, to the band I performed with “Soma” this was where I found a sense of belonging. The opening of the first coffee-house opened in my semi –rural area as well, where I became a part of.  It just occurred to me that today in 2012 a coffee-house is no doubt a very different thing than in the mid to late 60’s. This is where I performed with my band Soma, booked other bands, worked the door, swept the floors, anything to help keep the doors opened. This is all meaningful because it’s when I separated myself from my family’s music.

  • What was the last URL that you bookmarked?

  • Name one thing not many people know about you.

I am extremely sentimental and nostalgic moments make me cry easily. A newborn baby will make cry, and the smell of a new puppy make me giggle.

  • What physical attribute do you like about yourself?  Can be anywhere from beauty to heart to physical strength

Wow! You’re tough Cee!  🙂  My skin. Or maybe I should say my mom;s skin.  I inherited my mother’s skin, her mothers’. All the way back  to my Great and Great – Great Grandmother.

” Coffee shops in the United States arose from the espresso– and pastry-centered Italian coffeehouses of the Italian American immigrant communities in the major U.S. cities, notably New York City‘s Little Italy and Greenwich Village, Boston‘s North End, and San Francisco‘s North Beach. From the late 1950s onward, coffeehouses also served as a venue for entertainment, most commonly folk performers during the American folk music revival. This was likely due to the ease at accommodating in a small space a lone performer accompanying himself or herself only with a guitar. Both Greenwich Village and North Beach became major haunts of the Beats, who were highly identified with these coffeehouses.

As the youth culture of the 1960s evolved, non-Italians consciously copied these coffeehouses. The political nature of much of 1960s folk music made the music a natural tie-in with coffeehouses with their association with political action. A number of well-known performers like Joan Baez and Bob Dylan began their careers performing in coffeehouses. Blues singer Lightnin’ Hopkins bemoaned his woman’s inattentiveness to her domestic situation due to her overindulgence in coffeehouse socializing in his 1969 song “Coffeehouse Blues.”     ~ excerpt from wikipedia,org
