The Wednesday Night Lab Session

Is no longer happening
Every Wednesday from 6 to 8pm

The Last one occured on September 15, 2021.

That is most likely the end of the project that depended on all the folks that would come by because it was the happenin' scene, their friends were there, and the music was hot. When we came back on June 16, 2021, it looked like it was going to happen again, but it just didn't come back to a sustainable level (and the comedy showcase never came back). There was so many almost magical pieces that had to come together to make it all work and magic is a scarce resource.


The following calender accounts for nearly every session and is presented for those who are interested in the history of the

Date # Link Notes about the show
Here are links to the online shows originally done on Facebook Live
3/18/2020 :1 https://www.facebook.com/jim.crozier1/videos/10157251361952842/ This was the very first one, I hadn't really decided I was going to do it until I sat down in front of of my laptop and started to figure out how for the first time. I had just gotten some books I had ordered from Annie Patterson so I started out playing some Pete Seeger songs from the book "If I Had a Hammer".




3/25/2020 :2 https://www.facebook.com/JimCrozierMusic/videos/898753517250116/ This was the next one, still using the webcam in my business laptop. It features my first version of the COVID-19 Blues.




4/1/2020 :3 https://www.facebook.com/JimCrozierMusic/videos/2694644307432997/ By this time, the webcam that I had ordered finally arrived, allowing me to use my music production computer. The picture was a lot better, but I was still stuck with the mic on the camera for audio. Featured my altered lyrics for "Don't Get Around Much Anymore".




4/8/2020 :4 https://youtu.be/iziTCjU2QnE Same technical setup. Featured Butch Burns' take on the COVID-19 Blues, and a few other song written by friends. The posted version is a higher quality studio recording of the show - same as the Facebook Live show, but better production.




4/15/2020 :5 https://www.facebook.com/jim.crozier1/videos/10157344022867842/ This was the first show after I got an upgrade to my Internet service. This allowed me use a program called OBS Studio which allowed me to use my studio mics and include program material from other sources. This one featured a video of a song written and sung by Mimi Hearn that I played to live during the show.




4/22/2020 :6 https://www.facebook.com/jim.crozier1/videos/10157370371217842/ This was the second show using OBS Studio with 3 songs from Mark Russell and one from Ben Banks. I also did material from the first act of Touch,




4/29/2020 :7 https://youtu.be/xoBuk0lzNHA With some stuff from the Lab Rats, more songs from Touch - with guests: Jimmy Lohman, Ben Banks & Mike Stone, Mary Z Cox, and Charles "CD" Place.




5/6/2020 :8 https://youtu.be/55rV7zweWE0 Features more songs from Touch - and guests: Jimmy Lohman, Mimi Hearn, Ben & Mike, Mike & Jan of the Common 'Taters.




5/13/2020 :9 https://youtu.be/DZ2aymKP_BY With Jimmy Lohman, Hot Tamale, and a couple of the songs that were in the original production of Touch but were cut before the show went to NYC. Also the story: Cross Country in a California Ford




5/20/2020 :10 https://youtu.be/BHX9vj6K--Y With Hot Tamale, the Lab Cats, Old Porch Swing, and Jim with songs and the story: Another Job in Brooklyn




5/27/2020 :11 https://youtu.be/39I7mFN_D1o With Charlie Place, BDMJ, and Old Porch Swing. Also some vid from Jim & Mike at Jeri’s Midtown, and the story of That Taxi Gig




6/3/2020 :12 https://youtu.be/nUZTVWUAqJQ Songs of protest, courage, and hope. Also material from the Guerrilla Sessions.
