ALBERTA ADAMS + RJ'S RHYTHM ROCKERS
"DETROIT IS MY HOME" CD RECORD RELEASE PARTY
Alberta Adams is at Guy Hollerin's this Saturday. $3.00!!!
This is a CD release party for "Detroit Is My Home." She
pairs with local notables Mr. B, Al Hill, and Ann Rabson
with Saffire on the CD.
Alberta Adams started out the Saturday nights at Guy Hollerin's
a month ago -- she sold out the house. There were more Detroit
musicians in the audience than on stage!
How many 90-year-olds do we know releasing a new CD? (Mental note:
we need to get Alberta and Frankie Manning together....)
Last week was fun -- Lady Sunshine and the X Band put out a tight
3 hours of blues and funk and we represented. We all rocked out
the floor with some lindy and blues dancing and improvisational-
type west coast. (The TallGuy had a jaw-dropping lindy with
a half-empty floor in the last set--I'm sure he was aware that he
had an audience of about ten lady admirers ;) Shoutout to William
for coming out with his lady to round out the group.
If you like seeing people stare in awe at your mad skillz, this is
the place to show off and make new converts to our efforts at
world dance domination. Or just enjoy the music and bop up and
down with the rest of the folks in the dancing crowd.
The crowds have been awesome and there is usually a line to
get in by 9:30. For this Saturday, WEMU was suggesting to come
at 8:00PM if you want a table...definitely right by 9 if you want
to get in.
