Hullo friends. It's Buffalo musician reunion time...
Tuesday, 6/8 at Bobby McGee's 7:00 - 10:00 p.m.
Joe Aromola, bass Russ D'Alba, saxophone Tommy Paladino, piano your host, drum set
It's not often when a bass player is our featured artist. Not that they're not worthy, mind you. You can't do without a heartbeat. But bassists of an upright nature have responsibilities that demand attention to the musical task at hand. They advance the pulse, anchor the harmony, focus the intonation, and do so with a physically demanding instrument. Self-aggrandizement is seldom their primary concern. So this week we welcome home an old friend, and reunite a community of musicians of a certain age. Joe Aromola was one of Buffalo's first-call bassists, and sorely missed when he re-located to New Orleans. And this is Joe's first announced visit home since big hair was a big deal. It'll be a love-fest, with some heart felt playing, and an all out jam session with Joe's old friends. We invite you to witness the energy and share in the festivities, as we celebrate the friendships forged in the music. Bobby McGee's 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.
Friday, 6/11 at Bobby McGee's 8:00 - 11:00
Gregg Juke & the Mighty No Stars
"Gregg Juke & the Mighty No Stars bring us along a journey of discovery that makes us glad we took the trip". Now those are not my words, but the reflections of no less an authority than Jim Santella. And that's a considerable endorsement. Our R&B theme for Fridays continues, with an expanding roster of rockin' artists, and a newly reduced price-point for beer and well drinks at Bobby McGee's. It's both a business decision and a thank you to our loyal and growing audience. The management at our evolving music club has always recognized that with bigger crowds and a competitive pricing structure, the value of your entertainment dollar goes up. It's a win-win. Join us for some serious No Stars blues groove, and wash away the rigors of the work week at Bobby McGee's.
Saturday, 6/12 at Bobby McGee's 8:00 - 11:00
Mary Stahl and the Jim Calabrese Trio
Buffalo's First Lady of Song is featured every Saturday this month at Bobby McGee's. How good is that? Another win-win. If you missed Mary last night, you can catch her this week. And the week after. And the week after... She can cast a spell you know. Irresistible and beloved in her home town, Mary is a talent worthy of national attention. As part of our mission at Bobby McGee's to present singular and deserving artistry, we wanted to offer her public an ample opportunity to catch her during what is a busy time for everybody. But be advised. Once that spell is cast, you'll be making reservations for next week before the evening is out. And with our new weekend drink specials, our theme is even more resonant: A Manhattan night at a Buffalo price...
