July 12, 2001 – One bit of good fortune is guaranteed this Friday the 13th – live music for the usual start-of-weekend gathering at The Color of Joy in the American Yacht Harbor shopping complex just steps from the Red Hook ferry dock.
Pianist/vocalist Sally Smith will be providing music as usual just outside the art gallery and gift shop on the Marlin Deck overlooking the AYH docks. Not as usual – in fact, for the first time – she will be joined by recently arrived jazz guitarist Tony Oliver. "If we are lucky, we may even get some ’70s tunes from acoustic guitarist Marty Iorio to add to the mix," Color of Joy owner Corinne Van Rensselaer says.
Anyone who thinks this sounds like a jam in the making is pretty close to being right. "If you play an instrument, don't feel shy about joining in," Van Rensselaer adds.
The gathering is from 6 to 8 p.m. and also features complimentary wine, cheese and crackers and, of course, the opportunity to see what's featured on the walls and shelves of the Red Hook art emporium. Casual conversation among old friends and new acquaintances is a staple of the Friday night get-togethers – "a great way to finish the week or start the weekend" with or without Friday falling on the 13th, Van Rensselaer says.
And, she notes, it's right on the way home for those commuting from St. Thomas to St. John.
