Andy Riverstone SINGS at the Empress of the Aethers

On Wednesday Last Miss Andy Riverstone returned to the airship stage for her bi-weekly appearance at the Empress of the Aethers.  I was fortunate enough to be able to attend this time.  Those who also attended were quite taken with Miss Riverstone’s stylings and her warm and effervescent personality.

Miss Riverstone’s repertoire includes Jazz classics and Broadway standards.  Her vocals are captivating and her banter with the audience is always fun and friendly.  Here is a sample for you: http://www.myspace.com/aplaceformysong 

Dancing to Miss Riverstone's dulcet tones.

Andy debuted with us on the 30th of June to a large and enthusiastically appreciative crowd.  She has since appeared at the Java Jive in Seraph City, a relatively new community embracing the “dieselpunk” aesthetic, and was equally well recieved.  So grand  was her reception in fact that the proprietress of that fine establishment, Miss Ceejay Writer, has engaged Miss Riverstone for regular performances on alternate Sundays.   The Java Jive Café is located at 160 Moss Avenue in Seraph City  

Miss Riverstone performs at the Empress of the Aethers  on alternate Wednesday evenings.  The Empress is moored above Thistle Hill  in Caledon Oxbridge Village  We would love to have you attend. You’ll be glad you did.

In which I undergo a transformative change and venture to show my new face in public

“While strolling through the park one day
In the merry merry month of May
I was taken by surprise
By a pair of roguish eyes
In a moment my poor heart was stole away.”

As I sat with pen in hand, or keyboard at fingers, to set down this entry to what is apparently a moderately well received journal (more on that later) I was listening to the soothing emanations of Radio Riel.  They list the theme of the day as Contemporary Instrumental, although a May Day Eve event begins shortly.  For some reason, possibly because of the plethora of May Day/Beltane/Walpurgisnacht celebrations in the offing for this weekend, the song quoted above came into my head.  A quick enquiry with the services of Mr. Google & Co.  brought to light some interesting, and hithertofore unknown to me, pearls of knowledge regarding the tune commonly known as “Strolling Through the Park“.  If you will permit me, before plunging into the primary focus of this missive I would like to share a few of them with you.
