We are set for another night of music at Jump Cut Café (formally Lulu’s Beehive) at 13203 Ventura Blvd Studio City 91604  Oct. 20th between 6pm and 10pm.. This will be, as always, an up close and intimate performance.  Jump Cut Cafe serves awesome coffee drinks, sandwiches, soups, salads and taste treats. There will be no cover charge for this event. The line up for the night is as follows.


6pm to 6:30pm--- Simon Lucas

Simon is a ‘folky’ from England. He has been in the U.S.A. for 30 years but still

speaks funny. He collects stringed instruments, some of which he can even play. He normally plays guitar, but has been known to pick up a string bass, dulcimer, cuatro or marxophone. He has a deep voice and sings a mixture of Irish, Scottish, Country and anything else he hears that he likes. He also has a stock of amusing  songs, which sometimes he can be bribed into singing. He refuses to make CDs, so if you want to hear him, you will have to find him onstage playing live.


6:30 to 7pm--- Kathrin King Segal and Charlie Brown

Kathrin King Segal started her singing/songwriting career in Greenwich Village’s golden age of folk music (as Kathy King), performing with such musicians as Stephen Stills, Richie Furay and Gram Parsons and later as a backup singer with Bobby Vinton. She enjoyed a long run in the scandalous Broadway musical, Oh! Calcutta!, appeared in numerous Off-Broadway plays, and became a popular performer in New York’s cabaret/supper club circuit. She’s the author of two novels, We Were Stardust and Wild Again, and has recorded two CD’s.   www.katgalmusic.com


Guitarist/singer/songwriter Charlie Brown was one of New York’s top studio guitarists for over two decades, with two solo LP’s on Polydor, Up from Georgia and Portrait of a Glad Man, and the CD, Ride in the Country. He’s performed and recorded with Van Morrison, Bob Dylan, Solomon Burke, Chuck Berry, Eric Weissberg and Barbra Streisand, to name just a few, and was lead guitarist for the Broadway show, Hair. Charlie and Kathrin collaborated on the CD, Land of Beginning Again.



7:00 to 7:30---Wayne.N.Sousa           www.starvationcamp.com
Born in the small country of Swaziland in Southern Africa, Wayne.N.Sousa always had a tendency to break away from the norm and try to create something fresh. Upon landing in the US, it is no surprise to hear the influences of African rhythms and melodies pulsing through the core of Wayne’s  music.  Blending a variety of styles all the way from Mbaqanga, Mozambique and one-drop grooves of Reggae to infusing Motown, Funk, Rn'B, Soul, Hip Hop along with Rock music from the 60’s and 70’s Wayne has created his own cross cultural, fun and unique sound that make everyone within ear shot want to get up and dance.

A California native and current resident of Santa Ana, Paul is a songwriter and plays lead guitar in popular OC band, Huge Blues.

9pm to 9:30pm--- Jon Walton,Tony Carafone and Ian Gothe

Jon Keith Walton and Tony Carafone first met and admired each others music at an open Mic night hosted by Dale La Duke.  Since then they have been playing together as often as possible. Tony Carafone brings a wonderful jazz soul that blends with Jon's acoustic story songs and upbeat instrumentals. Recently they have added the talents of another open Mic friend, Ian Gothe, who intertwines his flute into Jon and Tonys music, creating a truly unique, Jazz-Blues-Island-country groove.  They call themselves, "U no U".  Many of the Beehive regulars have seen them develop the sound they are chasing over the last few months at Kulaks Woodshed, Olde Towne Cafe, and Lulu's.
