Why don't you join me? We can moan together. Or, if you behaved yourself yesterday....dance? Yeah.. Be my guest, there's a dance floor right in front of the stage....but, don't be too 'bouncy'....makes me kinda dizzy today. O.K?
Now, let me tell ta alittle bit 'bout the BLUZZZ Queen of the known Universe...Ms SHELLY ELY, well, she'll be on 'lead' vocals. She's pretty 'sassy' too...so watch out, anything might happen...it's always a surprise! One thing ain't a surprise though...her powerful blues voice, time and time again, over and over we can all count on that....everytime, with every tune. I'm posting a sample below. O.K?. Next, there's STEVE MERRIAM....singer/song writer/guitar guy...WOW's what I'll say....except don't wanna miss him, yep DEBI LAWERENCE will be there and taking photos. ANDRE THOMAS/drums is off tonight....resting, and MATT WILLIAMS/drums is filling in fpr Andre. Loretta, Matt's wife will be there. Then, there's my hubby, STEVE BARTLETT ON BASS/vocals too. There's lotsa singing and harmonies in this group...love it. Heck, even Deb and I were singing [in Shell's kitchen, mind youl, but singing] during rehearsal this week.
THE STONEGATE has really good food...so, come early for a bite to eat, before the show that starts at 9. I may pass tonight....BUT,the wonderful smells may get to me....and, I 'll order something wonderful.
The Club is easy to get into and has big bathrooms too , just incase you have your own wheels on you. Address: 5419 South Tacoma Way in Tacoma, WA. of course.
I'm posting a video by MERRI PETERSON SUTTON,taken at Uncle Thurm's Soul Food last summer, of the group. Used by permission...thanks Merri.
