OPEN-MIKE MUSIC CATCHING ON AT COLOR OF JOY

July 24, 2001 – The music goes on at the Color of Joy art gallery and boutique this Friday evening, with jazz guitarist Tony Oliver and a pair of Marty's on tap.
Keyboardist/vocalist Sally Smith, a regular at the weekly sunset get-togethers on the Marlin Deck at American Yacht Harbor, is off island. Filling in this week will be pianist/singer Marty Beechler "and musically inclined friends," including Marty Iorio on acoustic guitar, Color of Joy owner Corinne Van Rensselaer said.
There'll be complimentary wine, cheese and crackers along with the music from 6 to 8 p.m., with the gallery and gift shop remaining open for the occasion.
Fridays are evolving into "open-mike" nights with a tendency toward '70s rock and blues along with jazz on the broad deck overlooking the Red Hook marina docks. Last week's gathering was "another wonderful, well-attended evening," Van Rensselaer said, with Beechler, Iorio and fellow acoustic guitarist/singer Jerry Clifford serving up the rock and blues, and pannist Morgan Rael sitting in with Smith and Oliver on the jazz side.
Other musicians and singers are invited to stop by and join in. For more information, call Van Rensselaer or Mercedes Berruz at the gallery, 775-4020.
