Great Blog Post Herb Gart, more Information went down here in your few words than any other's I've read to date. It must have been a scarry kind of situation to be in your shoes back then, in the bringing together of such a melting pot of Talent not really knowing if it would be accepted,,,,, My Hat's off to you !!  Knowing what I now know,  I hold Herb Gart totally responsible for CREATING the Term of which I've used to describe myself for years as well as many many other artists today  " The Singer/Songwriter "  Thanks Herb  .

There are other Marvelous Posting's by the (Boy's n' Girl's back then) who have grown into the (Men and Women of today) in the music industry ,,,,, Your All Hero's in my book .

"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
