This painting was created live at a performance of the Cosmo Alleycats playing in the historic and iconic Club Deluxe – a one-of-a-kind bar nestled in the heart of the Haight/Ashbury district of San Francisco (actually almost at the corner of Haight and Ashbury!). The band comprised of (left to right as depicted in the painting) Mike Burns – Drums; Steve Height – Upright Bass; Noam Eisen – Piano, Hammond B-3 Organ & Vocals; Emily Day – Lead Vocals and Percussion; Andrew Storar – Trumpet; and Pete Cornell – Sax & Clarinet. Thank you to Peggy G. for the videography, to Jeremy C. for sound and Sarah W. for the use of her fabulous Club Deluxe. As the video shows, this live performance was created as a demonstration of unique creative cross-disciplinary entertainment, Parallel Play, for virtual conferences and events.

In this video you see the whole time-lapse replay of my painting.

Here are some photos taken at the session by Peggy G.:
