Hop in! Where you headed?

I aim this blog at Hitchhiking stories, obviously. However, you can take that in the 'poetic' sense, as we are 'snakes' in time and the asphalt rivers take us to many places, as well as 'places'..

.... occasionally my own 'Road' spurs me to use this blog to communicate with someone I've 'travelled with' who holds a special meaning to me.

Danse Cambeau does Dylan Big Band Style in Portland..anyone remember?:1982-ish

I even met the guy once, but i kick myself for missing the show. I think it was at the Baghdad theater...did it used to be on or right off Burnside? I think that's where he played. I forgot his real name, which he introduced himself to me with, but his stage name was Danse Cambeau. I heard the ads on radio even over in Seaside where I lived.

He wrote all the parts to a Big Band style stage band, yes, like Glenn Miller-style, ...something like:  " an evening of Bob Dylan, arranged by Danse Cambeau" and he spoke with his fake-french accent. Now I wish i would've seen it. I can't find anything on the internet about it.
