There are SO SO many people that Larry Jon Wilson touched with his music and his caring humble self I being just one of the multitude .

 I came to know Larry Jon and his music while becoming involved with the Frank Brown (FBISF) Festival down in FL/AL IN 2003 and as the years flew past I had many opportunities to Listen, Chat and get to know this Gentle man . It was Bittersweet this year at the Frank to say the least . R.I.P. Brother Larry

"BRING BACK THEM GOOD OLD DAYS!" ~ Comments from our members!

Lisi Tribble about Gerdes Folk City:
"Jay Byrd was the last hooter- Dustin Hoffman based his character "Hawk" in Ishtar on him. Enamel the Camel. The Roches. Rick Danko. David Massengill. George Gerdes. Eric Andersen. Mark Johnson. Gregory Fleeman. Jack Hardy. Robin Williamson. Tret Fure. Ferron. Sammy Walker. Lach. . .--Anderson,

Bob Dylan was also below age when he first played there. Mike signed his guardianship forms."

"I loved it when the Village was still like a small community, a town within Manhattan, and mostly "regulars" would hang out.....I always felt so welcome there... Bring back them old days!"
~Ida Langsam

"This website is gonna catch on fire. Great idea! When I get to something other than an iPhone I'll upload some pix and stuff. I'll be keeping tabs...I Think this kind of organized exposure for the artists willing to perform is Great. going to blossom"
~Bob Porco (grandson of Mike)

"Thanks so much for putting this whole thing together, and for inviting me to participate. I have such wonderful memories of the Bitter End and all the other coffee houses: Gerde's Folk City, The Gaslight Cafe... saw so many wonderful artists perform."
~Yvonne Fitzner
