TICKETS TORN IN HALF:September 27,1973-MIKE BLOOMFIELD@ The Orphanage, SAN FRANCISCO-On our honeymoon and after a great dinner one evening I asked the bride to go to see Mike Bloomfield in a very small club in San Francisco.At the bar we had a bit of difficulties verifying my wife’s age, and then told that tonight was a “benefit” for gay men (?). The bartender apologized for any misunderstanding as I said “Is Mike Bloomfield playing tonight or not? That’s all I care about”. To which he said “Yes” and then sat us on a sofa to the right of the stage. After the first set Bloomfield came over to us, thanking us for coming. He played amazingly with this “pick up” band of musicians. Mike Bloomfield, A true gentleman.
