Tuesday Notes

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Tuesday, May 10, 2011

I continue to try and catch up with all that is happening in my life.


The Blues Music Awards were fantastic and you can see some of the pictures I took by checking out the article at AMERICAN BLUES NEWS.

What a treat to see Steve Miller, Buddy Guy, Bob Corritore, Reba Russell band and so many more performing live. With my photo pass, I was able to be right on stage during their performances.


Last night I got to talk with Tatiana Moroz, a fantastic young singer and Rick Figueroa a talented guitarist. Rick is a high school chum and it was fantastic finding him on Facebook and then being able to book him for the show.

If you missed it, you can check out the podcast of the show here.


Many of you have called, sent texts and tweets asking how we are doing down here in Memphis. Personally, we are fine. We do not live near any rivers. We have friends who are not as lucky, and we continue to pray they are not impacted too much more. the river was supposed to have crested last night, so hopefully the worst is over for Memphis.

They have moved the Bar-B-Que Fest over to the Liberty Bowl because the park where it is normally held (the same park as the Music Fest 2 weeks ago), is now under water.

Wondering if the Sunset Symphony will actually come off this year. Hoping it will as the Bar-Kays are the featured guests. They will perform with the Memphis Symphony in a tribute to the age of Stax Records...COOL!

Anyone want to come, let us know. It is May 28th and costs only $7.00 for all of this:
The day opens with music from local performers, followed at 6pm by a spectacular air show from the Commemorative Air Force, sponsored by Delta Medical Center. The show features vintage WWII and concept aircraft such as the Corsair, Hawker, Stearman and Russian Yak. Watch as the pilots perform amazing aerial stunts and multiple high-speed fly-bys.
As the sun sets, the stage is set for the smooth sounds of the Memphis Symphony Orchestra performing. After intermission, the Memphis Symphony Orchestra is joined by Memphis legends, The Bar-Kays with A Tribute to the Timeless Music of Stax Records.

As the sun goes down, the skies light up with a spectacular fireworks show, sponsored by Bank of America, orchestrated in part with the Symphony performance.

We pack a big lunch, beer and wine and chairs and hang with great music and people.

Come on down! (Or up if you live South of us!)
