Oct. 4, 2001 – In celebration of the fact that they seem to have become a fixture, the weekly get-togethers on the American Yacht Harbor deck outside The Color of Joy now have a name: "Friday Night Alternative."
Last week's installment attracted an assortment of talented islanders, including Lightnin' Phil's Band (Phil Robinson on fiddle with Paul Dirk on bass, Morgan Rael on steelpan and Paul Deaton on drums) and vocalist Ron Nimmo ("with his bevy of singing ladies, who all took turns at the mike"), art gallery/shop owner Corinne Van Rensselaer reports.
Adding to the ambience, it was house keyboardist/vocalist Sally's Smith's birthday.
This week, some or maybe even all of them will be back, Friday from 6 to 8 p.m. on the Marlin Deck outside the gallery. With Smith as host, the lineup also includes Andrew Douglas on steelpan and St. John's Marty Beechler on vocals.
As always, the gallery will be open, and complimentary wine, cheese and crackers will be served. Those who head home from St. Thomas to St. John at the end of the day are reminded that The Color of Joy is minutes from the Red Hook ferry dock, making it a convenient stop to unwind, end the week and start the weekend. For more information, call 775-4020.
