Here it is...Ready? Me too. From Shell.. "Laurie Johnson kicking ass tonight at Uncle Sam's.. As always.. Plus Jho, Salmon Dave Cox, a naked drummer and Mr. Willit.? Hey, cool Shell...and look.... DYLAN LANNY ENGLAND /drums will be naked! That's new.. WOW! Bet, lottsa ladies show up tonight at UNCLE SAMs. It'll be a good show, so get at Uncle Sam's early. Plus...THREE  more great musicians too! WOW...'when it rains it pours...huh, Shelly'. So, that's the fantastic JHO BLENIS/guitar AND Salmon DAVE COX/keys?

Speaking of fine bass guitar...TERRY JAE/bass is up tonight in Shelly's jam ...and LAURIE JOHNSON/harp/vocals. Laurie is the fearless leader for the band 'Careless Hunter' the last time Steve and I saw her...She's always cool. It'll be a great night.
On Thursdays, it's always THE JERRY MILLER BAND [looks like the Jerry Miller Band is starting a new web site...check it out] is playing at UNCLE SAMs, again that's 7 pm. The group members are Jerry Miller/guitar, Denny Foreman/guitar, Dave Erwin/bass, JEFF WALLACE/keyboard/violin, Allen Heath/drums, and RUSS HARRIS/congas/harp. Please send an update guys, if there's been any changes it's not on your new site yet. Thanks. Jan
Next up is LIQUID SOUL COFFEE ROASTERs in McKenna. Always a fun place. My wonderful hubby STEVE BARTLETT/bass played at Liquid Soul last Friday night, he's a member of the band, WALTERs BIRTHDAY. It was a great night with a good turn out for this awesome band. Steve loved it.
On Thursday's there's an OPEN MIC hosted by David Wayne at Liquid Soul. Bring your axe down and play some. Starts at 6 pm. That's in McKenna. At the McKenna 'Y' in fact, behind BAYDOS.
That's all live music that's been reported at the Liquid Soul web page. Look at link if you like.
Now, KENNY WILLIAMSON/drums, Kenny sent me a link yesterday about Music frequency and control. Check it out HERE. Interesting ideas Kenny, thanks. No new live music to report from Kenny. Bet, he's working with his newly created jazz band called NO BOXES. Cool.
WILLOUGHBYs RESTAURANT AND LOUNGE in downtown Yelm. OK,...SHELLSHOCK doin' Karaoke this past week and, new 'Dance Cages'? What's that?? I'm I getting old or what? I've never remember ever dancing with or in cages, and I've always been real cool. Anyway, never mind that, Willoughby's got new ones [cages]. Check them out. OK.
THE MANDOLIN CAFE in Tacoma. I know each Sunday at 6 pm DENNY FOREMAN AND FRIENDS host an OPEN MIC at The Mandolin, sign up at 5:30. I found this on FACEBOOK this week, posted by THE MANDOLIN CAFE. I saved it to re-post here. From the Mandolin Cafe on FACEBOOK..." MEMO TO MUSICIANS: The submission form on the website is not working. It adds your information to our database, but does NOT generate an email to notify us of your requests to play. If you have sent a request recently or want to, email firstname.lastname@example.org with Band Name, Website, Genre, Contact Name, Email Address & Phone Number, Desired Dates (check the calendar). Thanks! We will work on getting it fixed!". OK, now you got it...straight from the Mandolin Cafe.
Remember, tip well or buy the musician's CD at the Mandolin, musicians do NOT get paid. Get there early for parking. One of my [Jan's] favorite places to relax in Tacoma.
RAMTHAs SCHOOL of ENLIGHTNMENT in Yelm. Ramtha's Q & A + Mexico Feast for 3/4 and 3/5 has been canceled.
