Songland Reunion Weekend!
2 Songland Shows in Connecticut on the Last weekend of January
Our circle of songwriter friends includes a small circle we've performed with numerous times over the years (and quite a bit back in the late 90s.
"Songland" was initially the Dan and Joe show: Dan Pelletier and Joe Giacoio.
There was a rotating third chair at many of the shows, which were billed as "Dan and Joe and sometimes Mo'e" (more).
The duo New Middle Class (married couple Mike and Barbara Borok) were "mo'e" so many times, the 3 acts decided to rename themselves "Songland." Just before the founding of "Songland," I (Carla) served as the next Moe, for a number of 4-act shows at venues that mostly no longer exist. 22 Below (NYC), One Station Plaza (Peekskill), Hillside Cafe (Nutley, NJ).
We spent many hours exchanging song lyrics over email (I was still living down South) and whenever I ventured up this way, we'd cram in as many shows. barbecues and song swaps as possible in my days in the area.
We all enjoy songs that mix humor and intelligence, and that make you think.
They remain among my favorite songwriters and human beings.
Especially that Joe guy...
