Monday and a new week begins

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Monday, September 27, 2010

Two men who were unable to stay away from the music business this week on MUSIC ON THE COUCH

Savio Rego was born in Bombay and ended up a banker in California, but music kept calling and the call has been answered with the release of ALL I WANT, his debut album. Full of songs combining blues, jazz, soul, and folk, I found it very enjoyable and look forward to chatting with Savio

Bobby Joe Owens owns a restaurant in Bowie, MD. The lure of the stage kept pulling him and eventually, he began writing excellent songs and working with various local musicians. Out of that came Retro Deluxe and now, with a revised lineup and a new album WATERMELON TEA recorded at the famous Delta Studios in Mississippi, Bobby Joe and Retro Deluxe are looking at breaking out big.

Join me this evening a 9:00pm Central - or anytime after midnight in the archives HERE or HERE as we talk to both gentlemen and hear selected songs from their albums.

Thanks to all who voted over on the FoodBuzz contest. Unfortunately I did not make the cut to the second round. Honestly, when I think back on it and kind of phoned it in and did not put together my best effort...maybe next year.

Have to get ready for a Chillin' & Grillin' event here at our home today as we welcome some of the local musicians who have been so welcoming to me in getting Music On The Couch going...

Bought 5 lbs of Cheese and Basil Sausage Rings from Brooklyn...burgers, raspberry-jalapeno marinated chicken wings, baked beans and macaroni salad are on the menu...

Might have some pictures to share later this week.

5 Of Your Sparks

  1. Wow, chillin' and grillin' with the musicians - SWEET! I hope more than a few broke into a jam session. That would have been incredible. :)

    Can't wait to see photos!

  2. Travis Cody Says:
  3. Some impromptu jams would have been fantastic! But even if nobody played or sang a note, I'm sure it was still a hit of an event.

    I'll catch the archives for the's Dancing!

  4. Jay Says:
  5. Chillin and grillin with the musicians sounds like fun. Will their groupies be there too? ;-)

  6. ...I love a good bean...

  7. SONGBIRD: No pictures...we were having such a good time I never grabbed my camera.

    There was a tiny bit of guitar playing but I promised they did not have to play for their meal

    TRAVIS: It was an event indeed

    JAY: All 1,000 of them showed

    PHFRANKIE: And Nancy makes the best beans
