Story Behind The Song: "Right Now Forever"
This dispatch comes from Danny:
About a month ago, JSS was in NYC for a gig (which was a blast!). Afterwards we hung out, danced, and boozed in the Village with folks who had come out to the gig. After THAT, very late, just a few of us made a familiar trip out to one of our favorite places in the whole world - Sunny's Bar in Red Hook. Among other things, Sunny's is home to the latest of the late night bluegrass music sessions in NYC, beginning at 11pm.
We were in the middle of a playing song - and when I say 'we' I mean JSS as well as 15 or so other Sunny's stalwarts on banjos, guitars, mandolins, fiddles, autoharps, pianos, you name it - and I (Danny) was struck by a peculiar feeling: I am living in the 'good old days'. These are them. Right now. Making music with these people. And I wanted that moment to last. Forever. Or at least for a while longer, before the sun came up and we all parted ways. That moment is what today's Perennial is all about.
