I started writing songs at Vic's.  I had an old YAMAHA acoustic guitar and I would spend hours before opening, strumming, picking chords; pausing, writing down words, rhyming them, timing them...

From this point, I will include some of these songs.  Many of them were eventually performed by myself, or by other musicians who played regularly "live" at Vic's.

I ran Vic's for 7 years.  Then I sold it and opened "The New York Station", another cafe-bar, which was an expanded, even more eclectic version of Vic's.
While doing "Vic's Cafe' and 'The New York Station", I also continued with my teaching, art, and acting careers.  Next time you are at TSUTAYA, check out "Sailor Moon", episodes #17 and #18.  I play the priest.  While you are at it, rent "Godzilla, Final Wars", too.                 (V.C)
