Danny Hull Newsletter: Musically This Week Vol XII, No 42

Hullo friends.  Here's this week's invitation, with a bit of a different slant...

Tuesday, 6/29 at Bobby McGee's 7:00 - 10:00 p.m.
Joey DeFrancesco, organ          Carmen Intorre, drum set 
This Tuesday Bobby McGee's presents the planet's leading exponent of the Hammond B3 organ as we welcome Joey DeFrancesco back to his Niagara Frontier roots.  And to make it happen, I will step aside.  Buffalo's jazz drumming ambassador to New York and the world has just concluded a date in Toronto with Joey D, and he called to inquire about bringing Joey in.  So while I'll still be at my familiar Tuesday night haunt, I'll be at the bar, and give way to Carmen Intorre.  (Carmen did offer me the opportunity to sit-in.  "You've got to get next to that time".)  

With apologies to our regulars, however, we have to ask for a humble cover charge.  The amazing thing is, in our 11 year history at Bobby McGee's presenting world-class artists on a weekly basis, this will be the first time that we've instituted a cover.  But at $10 per person, it's still a bargain.  An early arrival is advisable if you'd like a table near the stage.  Our thanks to Mike Kaupa, Chris Ziemba, and Buddy Fadale for graciously rescheduling their date.
Another bit of news, consistent with presenting Joey D, is an honor again bestowed by Buffalo Spree Magazine.  The Best of WNY 2010 issue is hitting the newsstands now, and we were recognized as the Best Weekly Band Gig.  Our thanks to Buffalo Spree for their continued commitment to excellence and all-things-Buffalo.
So our theme continues, and as always, you are invited.  Bobby McGee's in the Maple Ridge Plaza, Sweet Home & Maple Roads.  Tina, Jyl, steady Billy & quiet Mike - good music, good food, good people, chilled spirits, and still a great hang.

Friday, 7/2 at Wegman's Sheridan    6:00 - 8:00
Dave Scott Trio

Dave's trio returns to the balcony at Wegman's Sheridan again this week.  Maybe Dave, Buddy & I don't notice the growth, being as that it is incremental, but last week three different parties of listeners asked Dave for his business card, and another inquired if we had CD's for sale!
