    Unfortunately, Arlo had other plans.

    The musical nighlight of the evening did not happen in the concert hall, rather about 5pm in the lobby when Chris Merenda’s band, Circle, was playing when out of the green room to join them came his brother Mike, sister-in-law Ruthy Ungar and Tao Rogriguez Seeger, representing 4/6 of the Mammals, one more than played inside billed as the Mammals (Chris did not play inside). Also joining the lobby band were Jay Ungar (Ruthy’s dad) and just-turned-two year old Willy Merenda, on tambourine and shaker egg.
