Oct. 18, 2001 – It's looking a little like ladies' night for this weekend's "Friday Night Alternative" musical and social gathering on the deck outside The Color of Joy gallery and boutique in American Yacht Harbor.
Joining host keyboardist/vocalist Sally Smith will be jazz singer Cynthia Saunders — most likely along with other musicians who'll be dropping by to sit in.
The gathering from 6 to 8 p.m. takes place on the broad Marlin Deck overlooking the AYH docks in Red Hook. Along with music, the "Friday Night Alternative" features complimentary wine, cheese and crackers and an open invitation to peruse the artwork and other offerings of The Color of Joy.
The deck's got the second story as its roof, so rain can't stop the music, gallery owner Corinne Van Rensselaer says. This Friday and all other Fridays, "the music will be very special," she says. "And anyone who wants to play, feel free to come and join in."
At 8 p.m., the music continues just a stone's throw away — as Lightnin' Phil (an Alternative regular) and his band perform dockside at Molly Molones. (The band members "like to warm up with us first," Van Rensselaer notes.)
