Danny Hull Newsletter: Musically This Week Vol XIII, No 13
Hullo friends. To say that we have life at Bobby McGee's would be an exaggeration, but the owner did tell me last week that it looks like we'll be there "awhile". It seems that the landlord agrees that despite the issues with the exorbitant monthly rent, it is best for all parties that we stay open. So we can look to the new year and see what that future brings. In the meantime, we thisweek present the most infectious of rhythmists...
at Bobby McGee's 7:00 - 10:00

When it comes to time and feel, there is no one like Wendell. Have you ever noticed that salsa music serves both extremes of tempo and pulse? The beat has momentum. That's why it feels so good. But when it comes to a ballad, time seems to stop - at least for this gringo. In fact I once told Wendell that he was the only musician in Buffalo who doesn't rush - an exaggeration to be sure, but you get my point. So join us thisweek. It's only cold from the house to the car, and at the club you can park centimeters from the front door.
