Danny Hull Newsletter: Musically This Week Vol XIII, No 17

Hullo friends.  We're looking good.  If 2011 responds to the promise, we're in for an exciting year.  As of this writing we have nothing signed, but the current and next owners do have a gentlemen's agreement, and there are some big plans.  A sports bar, a concert series in a remodeled banquet room, and the continuation of our Tuesday night jazz experiment are all in the discussion.  For now we're only booked through this month, but we may know more by Tuesday.  Can I update you then?

Tuesday, 1/11/11 at Bobby McGee's     7:00 - 10:00
It's Kenny's Fault
Kenny Kuriscak - saxophones     John Hasselback, Jr - trombone     Dave Kayne - vibraphone     Cameron Kayne - bass     your host - drum set
This whole thing isn't entirely Kenny's fault.  Dave Kayne bought into it.  The two of them conspired to craft a quintet that features some of the most challenging music that four school band directors and college student could possibly deal with.  And so what if I'm the only one whining about it!  This stuff is hard!  Salsa in 5/4?  Whoever heard of such a thing?  Music is supposed to be fun!  And have you heard any of that Dave Holland material?  Of course you haven't.  Dave Kayne and Kenny Kuriscak are the only jazz enthusiasts who buy those recordings!  So why not help me here.  Stop in Tuesday night and talk some sense into these guys.  Explain to them that Horace Silver is where it's at.  Satin Doll and The Girl From Ipanema never hurt anybody...  
Bobby McGee's, 
n the Maple Ridge Plaza, Sweet Home & Maple Roads.  Jyl, steady Billy & quiet Mike - good (challenging) music, good food, good people, chilled spirits, and a great hang.

Saturday, 1/15/2011 at Bobby McGee's     8:00 - 11:00
Mary Stahl and the Jim Calabrese Trio
Mary Stahl, vocals     Jim Calabrese, piano & arrangements     Dave Siegfried, bass     your correspondent, drum set
Mary is back!  And she sings standards.  Nothing in 5, (or 7, or 11...)  Standards.  The Great American Songbook.  Music that you know, music you can dance to...  And may we invite you to do so?  Don't let the cold keep you home.  We've still got another three months before we see the grass anyway...

next Tuesday, 1/18/2011 at Bobby McGee's     7:00 - 10:00
Sir Walter Jedermann - piano, vibraphone & vocals     Cameron Kayne - bass     your host - drum set

upcoming at Bobby McGee's...
Saturday, 1/22 Mary Stahl
Tuesday, 1/25 The Kipler Brothers
Saturday, 1/29 Mary Stahl


It's still Kenny's Fault...
I don’t have an attitude problem.  You have a perception problem.
