Music Fans of the Month in 2020:
This month’s Music Fan of the Month is “Jack the Cat”. If anyone has visited The Peoples Room of Mobile in the past several months, they have come to know this very popular cat, which also enjoys great music. He even appears with Jim Pennington (owner of The Peoples Room) in a popular mural in downtown Mobile. Jack has been embraced by both performers and music fans – it’s always a joy seeing him at shows.
