He shares his space with other musicians from time to time and last weekend it was Cathy's turn. In real life Cathy teaches in my wife's school and on the side she sings and does comedy. Her husband plays piano at Little Palm in much the way Larry Smith holds down the fort at the Pier House.It was a good evening out and we had a good time, and when Katherine got up to do a duet with her buddy Cathy, the cheerful Larry invited her back for an evening of her own in June.
It works for me as I always like an opportunity to have a reason to go back to the Pier House. Sitting there listening to the music I got an inkling why people come to key West and stay in these places on the waterfront. I wouldn't have minded myself retiring to a room looking forward to breakfast by room service on the balcony overlooking the harbor. It sounded divine but we had to drive home when the music was done. We are, after all, locals.
