IT IS SUPER MOON NIGHT!
Tonight and tomorrow night is the Super Moon ending to August that has so many folks all over the world so excited. The sky in the Philadelphia area will be a little cloudy, but we should still be able to see much of the moon’s beauty. The moon is closer to the earth tonight and bright, so some of it should be visible. It is a wonderful way to say, “Goodbye” to the month of August and to make our way towards the transition to the next season. Socially and culturally thie upcoming Labor Day weekend is thought of as the end of summer, but we know that the real arrival of Autumn will be Saturday, Sept. 23rd. But we can ease into our Labor Day weekend having had the beauty of something special happening, “Once in a Blue Moon.” Look up and enjoy!
EMERGENCY HELP FOR JAMEY’S HOUSE OF MUSIC!
As readers of this newsletter know, Jamey’s House of Music in Lansdowne is one of my favorite places in the area to both hear and play music. I have played the premises with The Dukes numerous times, I play once a month with the Girke-Colgan-Davis Project at Sunday jams, and Johnny Never and I have been there several times, including our upcoming appearance on Saturday, September 23rd. Recently the upstairs tenants at Jamey’s flooded the bathroom leading to a collapsed ceiling in the club itself. There is a Go Fund Me set up to help raise the estimated $16,000 needed to pay for repairs. Please give what you can; every little bit helps. Even if you have never been to Jamey’s, you know how valuable this place is with its incredible roster of blues jazz, and folk concerts, its Sunday jams, and its great food. Please help out:
The Sunday Blues Jam; Jamey’s House of Music; 32 S Lansdowne Ave; Lansdowne, PA:215-477-9895; House band set from 12-1PM-open jam from 1-3:00 pm. No cover.
(The Roger Girke-John Colgan-Davis Project’s next appearance is Sunday, September 10th
Blues lovers and players have made Jamey's Sunday Blues Jam the place for great blues jamming, really good and inexpensive eats, ales on tap, fresh ground coffee and espresso, and friendly people who love the blues. Each
Sunday features an hour long set by a house band, and then an open jam
until 3PM. Most Sundays the great Philly Blues Kings, featuring guitar
and keyboard ace Dave Reiter, do the 1 hour set followed by the jam. Most months, the second Sunday finds The Roger Girke-John Colgan-Davis Project laying down the opening set.
