Church at Clarendon, 1210 N. Highland St. - Arlington, VA - 22201
Amphora's Diner Deluxe, 1151 Elden St, Herndon, VAJay Keating has showcased at The Folk Club of Reston once before. Fresh off their appearance at the Takoma Park Folk Festival, his band, Know1Else, will accompany him. They will be minus the irreplaceable, Kelly Diamond. Kelly will be in Paris that week with her husband, Jeff. (a moment of sympathy for them both...all right...that's enough) But his two bandmates and offspring, Mae and John, will be there. As will, Ron Goad, the band's percussionist and mentor.You know the story. People who can't live on TV reruns start playing music. First at home and then around town. Jay & Kelly couldn’t have come at music from more different places. Jay was atouring stand-up comedian and then a singer-songwriter in the 1980s. He opened for Jay Leno, Jesse Colin Young, Laura Nyro, Andy Kaufman, Jonathan Richman, Mort Sahl, Peter Tork (of the Monkees), and many more. He left the traveling entertainer life to be a producer of commercials and multimedia. Ever hear those wacky Don Beyer Volvo commercials over the years? That’s Jay, doing both the writing and the voicing. Kelly Diamond had never performed in her life except at church. She is a successful marketing consultant and has a wonderful family of her own. How wonderful you ask? Well, Jeff took her to Paris. 'Nuff said.They call it Third Wave Music, a mix of styles including folk, jazz, rock, bluegrass, reggae, and more. The songs are about their here and now - no longer young and hopeful, they are older and still hopeful,sincere, sarcastic, and joyful, with a new perspective.Jay, Kelly, Mae & John are active in supporting the local music scene. Jay is now the President of SAW (the Songwriters Association of Washington) and Kelly is the communications director at SAW. Jay is on the board at Focus Music and is running a Focus showcase one Sunday a month at Positano in Bethesda. (focusmusic.org). Mae and John are often volunteers at these and other events as well as participating in numerous chorus, musicals and other pursuits.They are all working on their first recording, and they are pleased to also be playing their first showcase at the Folk Club of Reston/Herndon. A quote: “Music isn’t the reason we live, but it suredoes make life more fun and surprising."
