 Jolene Draper and the Inquisitive few  played an eclectic set, Wednesday April 24 for a fundraiser for Teri Petz, who runs the Owl Acoustic Lounge’s monthly poetry open mics.


The fundraiser was to  help Teri Petz return to Hungary to visit an old friend.

 There was an intimate audience for their set as most of the poets, who had performed before, had left.

 Draper and Bassist Steve Martin sang a  variety of popular hits like The Bare Naked Ladies’ “ Brian Wilson”  a few originals  and a quirky song that may have been a Ween song. 

 Draper tried her hands at scatting as she recited a beat style poem, as the band laid down the groove


 Gabe Thaine alternated on guitar and keyboards as drummer Taylor Murphy held down the beat.

 The event raised  close to $1,000 including the donation bucket and  silent auction of a variety of items including poetry books.

 The played one of Draper’s originals  the jazz tinged “ Storm Rolling In,” and  went right into a hot rendition of Queen”s “ Somebody To Love,” which showed off the band’s vocal harmonies.
