  1. Yeah, Simon Carroll…the “only man with enough ‘sticks’ to play in all three bands” of the Virgil’s January 20th triple threat Brazilian night, plus have a bunch of other gigs constantly…also one of the few persons gracious and kind enough to make so many different kinds of people happy at once. That takes skill.
