RICHARD MOLINA/guitar was calling everyone in THE MOJO BLUES or MOJO GROOVE BAND [they have two names 'cause they're just twice the fun, that's all. Jan]...Anyway, Richard had a possible gig in Pioneer Square in Seattle for tonight, he's helping host a jam...he was asking 'Could everyone of the band members make it?'....Well, that sounds fun thought my Steve, and, after talking to me...and, he didn't have to talk too much either, I said 'Go, Do it Steve', 'cause I love his music and am all for it, all the time. Bring your ax...it's a jam, that's all I know 'bout it.
So, tonight, Friday, April 19th....BARTLETT ON BASS will be playing at THE NEW ORLEANS CREOLE RESTAURANT [WOW...I love Creole. You? Jan] in Pioneer Square in Seattle. [114 First Ave S Seattle, WA 98104 (206) 622-2563 ]...online it says it's ' in the historic Lombardy building'...well, I don't know Seattle very much either but, if you haven't made plans for tonight, this sure sounds fun to me. O.K?...'So, Be There, or Be Square' is what I always use to say, when I was a really cool hippie. See you there tonight....I don't know what time it starts either...what? 'No, Steve didn't say but, he's heading to Seattle 'round 5:30ish, from Tacoma with the rest of the band, he did say it would be over 'round 11 pm...Richard;s driving them all...Thanks Richard.
The members of this THE MOJO BLUES or GROOVE BAND are, of course, BARTLETT ON BASS with 'MOJO', that's MARY JO TRYHOLM/vocals, RICHARD MOLINA/guitar...not sure if HARRY LOGAN/drums will be at this gig, he has some stuff going on tonight...BUT, there will be a very cool drummer and a wonderful male vocalist named JOE, who plays the guitar too, and you, if you come down...I know, this makes it kinda different...Steve just got home it starts at 7 or 7:30 pm but, It's late notice for us, too...and my Steve's just home right now. Have a great weekend, you guys. where ever you are. O.K? Jan
