Last Wednesday after being out of town for 4 1/2 years now residing in Arizona I stopped by Melts open mic on Wednesday night. It was fun playing a few songs there. The host was very friendly and a darn good musician in his own right. The people that worked there were friendly and the coffee, red wines and excellent sandwiches put a nice finishing touch on the evening for people who wanted to stop in and get some free entertainment from some very talented musicians. I plan on making sure my upcoming visits to San Francisco include Wednesday nights so that I can include playing at Melts open mike. You don't have to be a musician to enjoy it.

Show: Saturday, September 15, 2007 @ 8 pm, I will be the featured performer. This has come about from performing the OM here for the past year. "Skylar Acoustic Live 2005" & "Calico In The Tetons" will be available for purchase as well as a NEW cd release. This is one of the better warm & friendly OM to attend in San Francisco. Gator the owner and Deforrest, MC are incredible individuals that are a pure delight to meet!

This Saturday night June 23rd at Melt-Café Im having a CD release party 8-10pm. I have been playing a year now at their friday night open mikes. The other musicians on the CD are people that have also been playing at Melt. This is what can happen when you go to an open mike and meet great people, talented musicians and decide to do something special. I hope some of you can come by. This CD "Lee Cameron and Friends" was born and given life because of the open mike's at Melt-Café.

I was checking out SFSU for transfer and went on a Friday to try and see what the people are like and I really like the Melt. They people were responsive to my songs and I really liked the atmosphere.
