As I have said before, one of the things I love about Negative Space is that it is more than just an art gallery. I love the artwork that is on exhibit there, and I really love Gadi Zamir’s work, but I also love the fact that the gallery presents many other events, particularly a lot of music events.
This past Saturday night was Jam Night. Any musician is welcome to come in and perform with the other musicians who are there. This Saturday, there were only a handful of musicians, but they were all very good, and it was a very fun and entertaining night.
The musicians included Sean Seibert, who is a member of the NSG board and is also the head of the gallery’s performance arts committee. He played bass and keyboards at this night’s event, and he is a very good musician.
Bart Davidson was also there. He is a terrific guitarist who only recently returned to the music world after taking a break for more than a decade. Two other musicians were also there, Tim Cox and Roy Morrow. They also played guitar.
The musicians played a mix of original compositions and cover songs. The night started with Sean, Tim and Bart. They played a version of “Hey Joe” with Sean on bass and keyboards, Bart on guitar and Tim on guitar and vocals. They followed that song with an untitled original song by Bart. They then performed “Smiles,” a song that Tim wrote.
They continued to play, doing both originals and covers. It was a fun evening, and there was a lot of great food, thanks to Bart, who brought the food to the event.
I love Negative Space, and I think it’s really a very special place. If you haven’t been there, you should check it out.
