Musically This Week Vol XII, No 25

Hello friends.  It's me, the late Dan Hull.  Story of my life.  In fact, nobody will believe it when I do pass to the next dimension.  "What do you mean, the late Dan Hull?  That's not news.  He's been late his entire life."  "No, no.  I mean it.  He's really late of this life."  "Yeah, yeah.  Which one are you, McNeil or Lehrer?"  So while my weakly promotion is again polluting your in-box at the proverbial last minute, I'll do my best (sigh) to hit the bandstand relatively close to downbeat...

Tuesday, 3/2 at Bobby McGee's 7:00 - 10:00 p.m.
Chuck Buffamonte, guitar     Bobby Jones, piano     Jim Colemon, bass     your host, drum set
It's reunion time!  Chuck is home.  One of the elite guitarists to emerge from our musically rich home town has found his way back to his roots.  After 30 years in the desert, my old college buddy missed the snow.  Well, maybe not.  But he is home, whatever the reason, and the music community is the better for it.  Please join us for a celebration of creative music and old friends.  The New Bobby McGee's is located in the Maple Ridge Plaza, Sweet Home & Maple Roads.  Tina, Jyl, Magan, steady Billy & quiet Mike - good music, good food, good people, chilled spirits, and still a great hang.

Thursday, 3/4 at Bobby McGee's     8:00 - 11:00
Wendell.tifWendell Rivera's Latin Jazz Ensemble
Wendell Rivera, latin percussion     Andy Weinzler, saxophone     Pat Georger, piano     John Curry, bass     yours truly, drum set
The storm cancelled the Latin Jazz Project and the salsa dance instruction last Thursday, but we're feeling Spring-like this week, and Wendell is ready to send his infectious rhythmicity into the McGee's-asphere.  You're welcome to dance, duly instructed or not.  But if you don't, you won't sit still either.  Join us to officially begin your weekend...

Friday, 3/5 at Bobby McGee's     8:00 - 11:00
Gretchen Schulz, guitar & vocals     Doug Morgano, guitar     Nick Veltri, bass     your correspondent, drum set
Another first at our venerable music club - the soulful Gretchen Schulz.  When Gretchen and Doug Morgano performed for our stage fundraiser, I was mesmerized.  I've heard great singers.  I've heard stylists.  But I don't know another musical artist who bares her very soul in song the way Gretchen does.  She is an original, and as a native Buffalonian, she's one of us.  We're proud to offer her to our growing Friday night audience, and we invite you to be among the enchanted.

Saturday, 3/6  at Bobby McGee's     8:00 - 11:00
Cindy Miller, vocals     Lisa Hasselback, piano     Wayne Moose, bass     DH, drum set     
The Great American Songbook is alive and well at Bobby McGee's, and we are again blessed to present one of the singular stylists of the genre in Cindy Miller.  Join us for dinner, dancing, and listening as Cindy renders her vast range and repertoire for you and yours.

It's time.  We're winter weary...
Ah, March!  We know thou art kind-hearted, spite of ugly looks and threats,
And, out of sight, art nursing April's violets!  - Helen Hunt Jackson

and Peace.
