Peabody Essex Museum, Salem, MA, United States - June 20, 2013

This was one of the nicest museums I've ever been to.  They had this huge centuries-old Chinese mansion INSIDE THE MUSEUM that you could just walk through.  We were part of a program celebrating an exhibit of 'African-American' art that featured work by Jacob Lawrence, Jean Michel Basquiat, Romare Bearden, William H. Johnson, etc.  It was an interactive exhibit, in a way.  We met some people and the gig went smoothly.  The only thing is that there was a big Boston Bruins game the night of the show. Boston people take sports very seriously. So, the audience left a bit early to see the game!  The room we played in was huge and boomy. I was glad that I hadn't brought a drummer. Vocals sounded amazing in this room.  B.jamelle came to sing a song by King and someone in the audience drew a picture of her.
