I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet.
If it’s the second Wednesday of the month, you’ll find delightful ukulele duo the Meteor Boys holding court at the Schooner Tavern. “Buster Hart” and “Lon Putter” dish up vaudeville favorites, charming originals, a knockout medley of vintage TV jingles plus a bit of Hawaiian fare, all with lots of smiles (and bow ties!). In street clothes, you know these guys as crafty songsmith and Magnetic Poetry inventor Dave Kapell (“Buster”) and longtime Wallets bassist Jim Clifford (“Lon”), who turns out to be a devilishly good crooner.
