Danny Hull Newsletter: Musically This Week Vol XII, No 37

Hullo friends.  This week...

Tuesday, 5/25 at Bobby McGee's 7:00 - 10:00 p.m.
Paradigm Shift
Gerry Youngmann, organ    Melvin Henderson, guitar     your host, drum set
Now we're getting funky.   Critics make their money writing about music.  And there's value in that.  Most of can learn something from a more experienced set of ears.  What do you listen for?  What is the meter?  Do you hear the harmony?  What makes one genre distinct from another?  Words help - when they're honest and truthful.  But the best judge will be you.  Do you like what you hear?  Does it move you?  Does it brighten your moment?  Do you want to hear more?  To that end, I'm going to direct you to

 Click on the music link and hear for yourself what Gerry & Melvin are capable of, and the company they keep.  Then come out and witness the music in the moment from two spirited, creative, and funky guys.  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 a great hang.

Saturday, 5/29 at Bobby McGee's     8:00 - 11:00
Ben Baia, Jr - vocals     Pat Georger - piano     Jack Kulp - bass     your correspondent - drum set
Our Saturday night dinner and dancing theme is starting to catch on.  Once the word gets out and people know where they can go for a good meal at a fair price, and relax to the standards and the Great American Songbook, the audience comes out, and comes back again.  This week Benny is the feature.  We are making an effort to bring back the artists that the diners and dancers love, and at once keep things fresh.  And Benny's book provides exactly that:  tunes you know, music that speaks to moments in your personal past, and material too that perks your ears and stirs the rhythm in your soul.  Keep us in mind should you plan to reward your work week effort with a Saturday evening of music and good company.  A Manhattan night at a Buffalo price...

So we thank you...
In ordinary life we hardly realize that we receive a great deal more than we give, and that it is only with gratitude that life becomes rich.
