The STEVE DALACHINSKY MEMORIAL/CELEBRATION at DMG last Sunday was a blast!

Special thanks to all of the musicians and poets who participated: Frank Meadows, Marty Ehrlich, Louie Belogenis, Jason K Hwang, ThomChess, Thomas Heberer, Michael Vatcher, Yuko Otomo, Kurt Gottschalk and Luisa Muhr. The poetry, music and stories really captured what made local Poet Laureate Steve Dalachinsky such an important part of our & the world’s Creative Arts Community. The final piece of the night started with a recording of John Zorn’s haunting piece, “Kol Nidre” (the Jewish parer for the dead, for everyone to think about Steve), which faded into a musical drone/flow led by Mr. Hwang. Eventually I asked everyone in attendance who had a cell phone, to find a clip of Mr. Dalachinsky’s reading on YouTube. Hence, Dalachinsky’s poetry was heard throughout the room in many layers. We could feel his presence and I thought I saw him in the back of the room, about to take off for yet another gig. It was indeed a glorious night and was filmed by Robert O’Haire, which we hope to have made available for view in the near future. – BLG/DMG
