"... a great cat named tiziano (stage name: "bob corn") opens up the show on solo acoustic guitar and singing - he does some beautiful tunes that are very soulful, dancing skips w/his feet (even though he's sitting) to accompany him..."
unknown guy: i remember this in my mind, after a show i played at "ausland" in Berlin ..
