Three Mikes On A Roll

Michael Doucet (of Beausoleil fame) and friend Michael Pillot dropped by this week for a visit and a nice surprise it was.  The Mr. D. & Mr. P. were on the Prairie Home Companion cruise bopping around the Caribbean and had a small layover in Key West.  I hadn’t seen Michael D. since the band stayed with us many years ago.  He broke his leg and is on crutches – though you should have seen him on a bicycle.  This photo is of him in what is called a ‘sand wheelchair’ and was taken in Marathon, Florida last month during a benefit concert.  The three of us named Mike went to El Siboney and had white bean soup and Cuban Mixes.  It doesn’t get any better than that.

Beausoleil’s latest CD, ‘Alligator Purse’ on Yep Roc Records, was overseen by Michael P. (whose day job is television producer).  Playing with the boys on this CD are Natalie Merchant, Garth Hudson, Rosewell Rudd, Bill Keith and others.  I love covers and there are several on this disc.  This link to Yep Roc has tour info as well as CD cuts….take a listen.  Oh yea, you can buy the music there too – $15.99 CD or $9.99 download (instant gratification).  Yep Roc is a great record label and has lots of my kind of music.  Music guaranteed not to bore.  The complete Beausoleil library of more CDs than I have toes and fingers can be found on Amazon.com – again buy the disc or download the MP3.


See ya on flip side, Mike
