Thanks Ben! as always, the music is interesting, and I loved listening to instruments that I don't usually hear!

Thank you all for a wonderful first Groupmuse experience! The dapper Blues cat included. If you're free, come to the Anita Listen Groupmuse I'll be hosting this Sunday at 4pm. A little earlier in the day, so we can drink and have no worries waking up the next day! Thanks again for the good vibes.
