    Tom Paxton was at Janis' very first public show, at New York's famed Village Gate. Janis was just 13 years old. She received a standing ovation but since she was nervous and already headed back to her seat, she had no idea it was happening. (She also hadn't attended enough concerts to know that you were supposed to take an encore!) Tom, along with Lou Gossett Jr and a couple of other performers, urged her to "Go back, kid! Go back!"

    The show these two old friends put on, with the able assistance of multi-instrumentalistextraordinaire Robin Bullock, is living proof that "The sum is greater than the parts." In addition to singing old favorites like "Ramblin' Boy" and "At 17", they sing one another's songs, add harmony and instrumentals, and share the stage for far too short a time.

    Two shows! 7:00PM and 10:00PM. Finally, Janis and Tom in New York! This is a great venue, great sound, great performers. Tom Paxton was at Janis' very first public show; Janis was just 13 years old. She took the stage with Tom, Lou Gossett Jr., Phil Ochs, Eric Anderson, and other folk singers to get a standing ovation and two encores.

    The show these two old friends put on, with the able assistance of multi-instrumentalist extraordinaire Robin Bullock, is living proof that "the sum is greater than the parts". They'll each be doing a solo set, so you'll still get to hear songs like "At 17", but they'll also be singing on one another's songs, harmonizing, playing backup, and kidding around. Don't miss it!

    One of Janis' favorite clubs, the Rhythm Room is a funky, friendly place with fantastic audiences! Anything can happen - one visit, her dressing room was a converted closet (cleaned and dusted, but a little airless.) Another time, 3 people in the front row called in a pizza order just before she went onstage, left the room to meet the delivery guy and pay, brought the pizza back to their seats, ate it, then left during her fifth song. (We have no idea why they came in the first place.) Janis says "We call places like the Rhythm Room 'hot & sweaty gigs' because that's what they are - and those places are where you can experiment, take chances, try out newer material. Great gig."
