Time Machine

Saturday night Judy and I attended a party that was like traveling back in time.  The band was the venerable Roomful of Blues, who I saw perform often during the 1970’s, the first in 1972 at Club Zircon on Beacon Street in Somerville. (I couldn’t remember the name of the venue but saxophonist Rich Lataiile, the remaining original band member, dredged it up.) The party venue was the Cambridge Boat Club, where Judy I and were married in 1980 and which we’ve not seen the inside of since. The Cambridge Boat Club has the same unadorned 1950’s-waspish atmosphere I remember and Roomful is still a great party band. It was all just like I remember–except the night ended a lot earlier.
