Default MQ and "Claire de lune"

Our classical station is playing Debussy's "Claire de lune". Everytime I hear this I recall Marcy's story about playing the piece on the piano in the Paddlewheel lounge on MQ. As she tells the story, there was a full moon on the river, and by the time she finished, the crowd in the bar was quiet. The image sticks with me even 15 years after hearing the story for the first time. If any of you are in touch with Marcy, please thank her again! She was the Riverlorian I think on our DQ cruise.
