On Sunday October 17th, the Riverside was witness to the beginning of a great Second Life blues career. After about 2 months of planning and waiting the day was upon us. Jakobie OHanlon wowed a crowd of over 60 friends, well-wishers and Riversiders. He had many of the women swooning to his voice and everyone else was loving his great music.
Kobie, as we call him, writes all of his material. So not only does he sing and play very well he also has a real talent for writing too. He provides his own backing tracks including vocals so it sounds like he is playing in front of a full band.
It was a special night for Kobie and for the Riverside as we had never had anyone’s début before. So we moved the party out of the club into the classy environs of a fancy skybox we bought just for the occasion. It was truly a unique night in so many ways.
It was a great night for the Riverside and a great night for Kobie too. It is also the start of a long term arrangement with Kobie, as he will play every second Sunday at 1 PM SLT starting this Sunday October 24th. Make sure to make that a regular stop in your SL week.
