OK., We'd better get back to my live music stuff. THE SHELLY ELY JAM is tonight, Sunday, February 27th, that's at 7 pm UNCLE SAMs BAR AND GRILL in Spanaway. There's DYLAN LANNY ENGLAND/drums...he was playing naked last week, who knows this week. I'd go check it out ladies, if I were you. TERRY JAE/bass, that's Shell's regular bass guy...cool. Maybe, JHO BLENIS/guitar? He's a good friend of Shelly's....so, I'm guessing/hoping.. I just know Jho'd like to be there, even if he's not...so, maybe. ...just maybe..pretty please with sugar on top.... AND, SHELLs singin'. It'll be a great jam everyone, bring your axe, have a beer and check it out. Address: 16003 Pacific Ave. Spanaway WA. 253-507-7808.
On Thursday's UNCLE SAMs always have THE JERRY MILLER BAND. They have a new web page. So, the guys in the band with Jerry Miller at the helm, are Darin Williams on drums, Kim Workman on Bass and Tom Murphy/drums.... this is from the new web site. So, looks like there's been some changes in this band.
LIQUID SOUL COFFEE ROASTERs in McKenna. Hopefully some cool stuff happening this past week for MARTIN SALINAS/guitar/vocals that I'm not allowed to report on now...when I can, I will. On Thursdays, there's always an OPEN MIC hosted by David Wayne at Liquid Soul, begins at 6pm. Next Saturday, March 4th the THE MARTIN SALINAS BAND 8 pm...it just says 5 piece, that's all I know for sure. Hoping Martin will call me this week and let me know more. Call 360/400-soul if you need an update about Friday's gig. OK? It's always fun at Liquid Soul, sometimes a $5.00 cover...and well worth it, when it's great live music, in my way of thinking. Jan
Well, KENNY WILLIAMSON/drums sent me a cool true story this week about OLD People...what? Just because I had a birthday this week...AND, that's not my fault Kenny. It is was a funny story, please go HERE to read it. He's [Kenny] working with his jazz group NO BOXES this week, I bet. No gigs reported.
WILLOUGHBYs RESTUARANT AND LOUNGE in Yelm. THUNDERHAWK does Karaoke this week end. No live music reported. They still have those dance cages.
THE MANDOLIN CAFE in Tacoma. Every Sunday night, RUSS HARRIS/congas/harp helps DENNY FOREMAN AND FRIENDS with an OPEN MIC, that's at 6 pm. Get there at 5:30 to sign in. OK? Russ really likes Tal Wilkenfeld's bass playing, just like Steve, go HERE.. And I've heard also Kenny WilliamSon/drums talking highly of her too. Well, I guess WE ALL love that little lady's bass playing. Check her out HERE. The Mandolin's fun. Take your axe and support all this live music in our area. We really are blessed with lots of fine musicians in this area, folks.
RAMTHAs SCHOOL OF ENLIGHTENMENT in Yelm. Ramtha's Q + A for Friday, 3/4 has been cancelled.

Doesn't it?...WOW!...WELL, WE'D or I'D or SOMEONE'D BETTER GET GOIN' THEN [raising my one working arm in the air hysterically...waving it wildly]....ITs A MUSIC WORKSHOP FOR KIDS...now, don't you grown ups try to fool, ol' Mike and Steve...they're pretty darn sharp..those two. I know, I know... IT'S GONNA BE GOOD...with that world class mystery vocallist and all. but, P-L-E-A-S-E try and give those little kids a head start will ya? No fair pushin', you guys.
I know..... Steve's meeting again with Mike tomorrow...I'll get ALL the details and post them right away...Mike's setting it all up and I forgot to 'ask' my sweet Steve tell me more...Whoops.
That cool band that Steve plays in...WALTERs BIRTHDAY, will be finishing up JON BARONI's keyboard parts this week end, if the weather's doesn't cause any more road problems. st_robert, the neat recording artist guy, sometimes has trouble gettin' 'round in the snow. So, the CD will be ready soon. YAY. Cool. I can't wait. Jan
