Karaoke was fun last week. There were more than a few triumphs during the evening, not least of which was our trivia quizmaster Paul Nagy starting the night off with Louis Prima's scat heavy version of "Just a Gigolo." Nor did our server Travis suck when he ended the night with a punked up lounge version of Hall and Oates' Rich Girl. Bring yourself and your crew tonight, Thursday, July 15, at 9pm and let us see what you got. Start it off with trivia at 6:30.
Friday we start at 7pm with the return engagement of a nifty little a cappela group called Cool Shooz. $5. Then we venture into independent rock and roll territory with Kosmos at 9p and The Say So Crazies at 10:30p. Check out the tune "She's So See Through (Lucy Loo)" on the TSSC myspace page for some flavor.
Saturday we have JT Nolan and The Lovely and Talented back for a Music Train Family Concert command performance at 4pm. Bring the family and gt out of the heat of a few entertaining hours. $7 adults/ $3 kids.
Then at 7pm we have a funk band from Honolulu called Friends of Adam (and any band called Friends of Adam is a friend of ours). Kamuela Kahoano--local boy from Hawaii, will open the night. Outstanding ukulele player who conveys the spirit of aloha. It's going to be a summer party. $5.
Sunday morning we continue our Mello Cello Brunch. Come try the brand new and already famous breakfast pizza. Also a little bird told us the bottomless Mimosas and Bloody Marys are only $10. Join Cellist Monica Sales and special musical guests for a beautiful way to start the week.
Future news. The great Brazilian band Sambadende is coming through the D Note July 30. August 13 the great Flamenco maestro Rene Heredia will bring his dancers in to the house. Then Saturday Aug 14 we have Ron Miles, Greg Harris, Serafin Sanchez, Lelah Simon, 3 Squared, Hybrid Sound, Alejandro Castano and more coming your way for the first annual D Note Summer Jazz Fest.
See you earlier,
Extra Credit: Here is a belated July 4 song for you by Adam D. Sing it in a minor key a la Gogol Bordello.
Declaration Of Independence
My baby likes the minor key, the minor key, the minor key
She doesn't like the monarchy, the monarchy, the monarchy
She prefers democracy, democracy, democracy
And a little bit of anarchy! ANARCHY!
