Summer 2012 .. has brought in some very talented musicians to the Mad Batter on Sunday Evenings.
This past Sunday July 1, 2012 I had the honor of listening to them perform.
WCFA Radio ( 101.5,cape may) personality MQ MURPHY hosts the open mic night.
He had a great line up of talent.. starting with “MQ” himself, followed by fiddle player “Tom Naglee jr”…”Roy Baker” ( loved his version of “sweet baby james”).
We also heard performances from “J.M Kearns”, “Barry Tischler” AND “Sid Kelly”.
It was a fun group of talented musicians. I loved the way Sid Kelly would jump in and join the other performers for certain sets. I also enjoyed Tom Naglee on fiddle joining in with the others. Everyone seemed to work so well with each other. They all made some beautiful music together last night.
i enjoyed alot of the oldies, like -KING OF THE ROAD, GO ASK ALICE, YOU AINT GOIN NOWHERE, and HUNGRY HEART.
open mic night will be every Sunday evening for the summer. Come stop by and join in, have a drink, or just enjoy the sounds of cape may artists at their best!!

How the Mad Batter Restaurant recycles kitchen grease in a classic car!
Another season has passed us by! People always say, “the older you get the faster time flies!” I really cant believe another year has gone by and fall is here once again. It seems like just yesterday we were digging out our beach chairs and pulling out all of our summer clothes from the attic!
October porches pumpkin martinis and scarves sum up what a perfect fall day is for me! To be able to sit out on a sun-filled porch with a cocktail and reminisce with old friends and/or meet new ones! Time flies….. so make sure you find the time to sit back relax and enjoy the beauty of the season!
