Coffee Works
Voorhees, N.J.

The third Saturday in May was the perfect time for a spring appearance at Coffee Works. The mild late-spring weather brought many folks out for the evening and kept the coffee house busy throughout the three sets of music. This interval in the calendar is also the traditional date of Armed Forces Day, and Dom made special mention of the holiday with a story and extra songs from his EP, Remember Me: New, Original Folk Music for the American Soldier, in the first set ("Walk Peacefully" and "Proud of Him").

The Rock hour featured yet another rewritten attempt of "Leave the Light On for Me" -- will this version be the one that sticks around? -- and began with a song that hadn't previously led off a set, "I Swear I Can Explain." Both tunes seemed to work well in their new roles.
