Bruce Famiglio, owner-operator of the Flying Dog Café had something very special going on Thursday nights at the Tallevast Road location. It was the place to be for musicians and music lovers alike. You would never know who would show up. But one thing for sure- it was awesome. Great musicians would always be there.
The “Dog”– Boys met girls and became boyfriend and girlfriend. Marriage proposals happened there! Breakups happened! There was a wedding reception or two. The dancing and the sound system were exceptional.
My pal Bruce always kept the place interesting along with Amber, Suzanne, Vinny, Keri and JD.
In 2012 we did a series of interview with folks who hung out on Thursday nights. I thought they were lost, but suddenly, they turned up. Here is one of the first interviews, Carolyn Davis interviewing Phil the Hat. Enjoy, please share and I hope this puts a smile on your face.
There are several more videos in the Flying Dog archives that we hope to share soon. Peace.
