The musicians

This is a group of guys who get together about once a month to share some songs, jokes and beverages – informally calling themselves the Poker Club. Each one has a different music style and somehow they all fit together.

John Cable’s songs are rooted in a traditional Americana style. He’s an excellent guitar player with a very pure clear voice and wonderful songs and he’s currently on tour with John McEuen – both of them alumni of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. http://johncable.com/

Jeff Silver writes interesting heart-felt songs about life, loss and love in a contemporary singer songwriter style. Jeff has had success with his songs and many cuts in Nashville and he runs the local NSAI songwriting group. A great guitarist and vocalist with a broad range. https://www.facebook.com/jeffsilversongwriter

Jim McCaffrey comes from a more rock direction, with songs in a kind of troubadour-rock tradition like Springsteen or Dylan. Dry sense of humor, cool songs and style. Jim always brings surprises to the table which cause smiles all around.

Bill Kahler plays piano for a living to support his folk habit and his songs range from serious to humorous in a contemporary to traditional folky style. He cites John Prine and John Hiatt as songwriting heroes. http://www.billkahler.com/

Expect plenty of stories about the songs and off the wall humor from these guys in addition to great performances which should make for a very entertaining evening. Very non-serious guys who are serious about songwriting
