I see you have some great photos of Manny Roth from the Cafe Wha? days. Since he recently passed, we want to honor him with photos in the club. Are any of the photos you have larger, especially that one where he's winking? It would be a great photo for us to put up, but it's a bit small. Anything you could do to help would be greatly appreciated.

"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!"
"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."
