Following the set, friends of
the Professors take part in a lively jam session which had the
audience dancing and shouting for more. Silvio Waisbord of Rutgers University
took a turn on lead guitar, much to the delight of a partisan Rutgers
crowd. Gary Brill
of Glass Planet took over
the skins from Kubey for the spirited jam.
Finally, the Professors
were honored to have the legendary blues-rock guitarist Jon
Paris lead a brilliant set of rock-and-roll standards, with
superlative support on bass from Steve Cooper, which
left the crowd screaming for encores.
The evening ended with Gary's daughter,
Meg Radford, just six years old, taking the microphone and giving a beautiful performance of
The Sammy Song, a song about her stuffed
dog Sammy, written with her Dad.
