Monday and a new week begins...

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Monday, September 19, 2011

Ever have one of those weekends...Not that it is a bad weekend...or an especially good weekend...not a weekend where you worked the entire time...not one of those weekends where you did absolutely nothing?

Yeah...I had one of those this weekend. Woke up TOO early on Saturday and took care of some business for MUSIC ON THE COUCH
BLATANT COMMERCIAL PLUG
Tonight's show comes to us with the assistance of good friend Julie who saw The Brighter Side Band at a Blues Fest in Canton.

She called me during their set to give me a cell-cert (which never really work, but we all love them anyway!) and after listening to some of their music on line I realized they were "Musicians You Should Know".

Then I sit with Rich deCicco who is the front man for the group The Ladies Of Sport out of Brooklyn NY. Their blend of pop-rock is cool and I hope you enjoy them also.

Now, I know this is week one of the Fall TV Season...and of course there is Monday Night Football...so aren't you so dang lucky that you can download the podcast after it ends and listen any time you want! You can even listen in parts if you choose!

END BLATANT PLUG
With Nancy having been gone the entire week and having long days, we opted not to drive the 2 hours to Greeenville, MS for the Blues Fest there. It is a great time and we knew a few people playing, but Helena and The Biscuit is just a couple of weeks away, October 6, 7, and 8.

The lineup is stellar once again with Buddy Guy, Delbert McClinton and Keb Mo headlining the three days. The cool part of this festival is the two second stages, which are free to attend. One is now called The Rising Biscuit stage where up and coming bands get the chance to show off their stuff. One of our past Couch-sitters, Cee Cee James is getting her shot on that stage. On the Lockwood-Stackhouse Stage, we will get to see friends Papa Don McMinn and Nightrain, The Wampus Cats, Andy Coates,
On the main stage, Lionel Young Band gets to perform as part of their winning the 2011 International Blues Challenge, along with Reba Russell and Room Full of Blues with James Cotton.

So many great bands are going to be there, the difficult part is deciding who to see and who to miss...

Digging my Fantasy football teams so far. This week's games are not all decided, but so far I like the distribution of points I am getting from the players on the teams. The money league is looking sweet.

Thanks y'all for coming!

  1. Travis Cody Says:
  2. Once again the networks seem to have loaded up on stuff I want to view on Monday and Tuesday. Why do they do it?

    Fortunately, we now have DVR in the bedroom. So everything can record to view at our leisure, and we can focus on football and dancing.

    And of course, we can come back to MOTC too!

     
  3. I watched three football games this weekend that came down to the last play. Incredible!

     
  4. My fantasy team is 2-0 and I have absolutely no clue how. Well, other than Tom Brady and Darren McFadden. But, other than them, I don't have crap.
