Hello everyone, how are you doing? Well, I hope. Honey Child, do I have some stuff for you. This weekend calendar is hot with shows and events that will blow your mind if you are into music. Girlfriend, sit back and let me tell you about them.
First, I want you to meet me for breakfast at the Jazz Expressways Foundation Breakfast Show on June 11 with a full breakfast buffet, live entertainment provided by the dynamite, hell raiser on keyboards and organ, Greg Hatza and his band, vendors for your shopping pleasure, little ole Me doing a book signing with both of my books, BYOB, and free set-ups at the Forest Park Senior Center, 4801 Liberty Heights Avenue from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
Then later that evening on June 11 about 8 p.m. we will dress up and check out the awesome Warren Wolf Jr. celebrating the life of his Mom, Celeste Wolf, with his group consisting of his Dad, Warren Wolf Sr. on percussion/ vibes and his sister, Dara Wolf on vocals, Warren Wolf, Jr on vibes, Mark Meadows on piano, Kris Funn on bass and CV Dashiell on drums. The program showcases some of Warren’s original songs, composed for his mother, along with many songs Celeste loved to sing and play on the piano. All of this is happening at Jazzway 6004 Lounge, 6004 Hollins Avenue in Baltimore. All tickets include soft drinks and a post-concert buffet of desserts, fruit and cheeses.
We must continue to support all our musicians and organizations that bring them to you. God knows we need live music in our lives. It sooths us, it relaxes us, it makes us feel good inside and it helps us keep our sanity.
