Danny Hull Newsletter: Musically This Week Vol XIII, No 30

Hullo friends.  Family on the bandstand...

Tuesday, 4/12 at Bobby McGee's     7:00 - 10:00
John Hasselback,Jr - trombone     Lisa Hasselback -  piano     Jim Colemon - bass     your host - drum set
Three of Buffalo's most beloved musicians are gracing our substantial & poorly lit bandstand this Tuesday.  And two of them are arriving together!  (As to  our "poorly lit" reference, maybe we can reprise the vibe of our former venue and find some colored light bulbs at a garage sale somewhere.)  OK, our lighting stinks.  But we'll take the trade-off.  The old club had a certain vibe, but there was no room for a grand piano.  So we remain indebted to Pat & Phil Georger of Hamburg Music, and we'll happily forego the small and curiously lit stage for a real, acoustic instrument for Lisa to explore.  John & Lisa are family, but with busy schedules each it's not frequent enough that they can appear together.  Can you then spare a couple of hours, take a well deserved break, and come out to greet them, hear them communicate musically, and share in the social moments?  John & Lisa are both ever so deserving of the musical spotlight.  They are genuine and considerate people, and they would love to see a crowded room of friends, fellow teachers, and musicians of all genres.  Bobby McGee's - in the Maple Ridge Plaza, Sweet Home & Maple Roads.  Jyl, Jennifer, steady Billy & quiet Mike - good music, good food, good people, chilled spirits, and a great hang.

Wednesday, 4/13 at Wegman's Dick Road     6:00 - 8:00
Dave Scott, guitar     Buddy Fadale, bass     your correspondent, drum set
