We’re cracking the blues safe wide open this Thursday night with the arrival of master yegg Mr. “Big Jack” Ward. Astringent humorist, catarrh master and deep-throated vogellist, he’s got somefin’ for everybody. He’s bringing along that cutie-pie saxophonist, hooligan, and former teen idol Mr. Mario Perrett, too. Gunzel services provided by one of my fave drumblers: Mr. Forrest “Frosty” Padgett.
And, Friday night, John Keegan® and Madhouse will be whooping it up once again At Capt. Carlos. An angry army of ants will be crawling up your leg all night long! See you there!

Well, it’s time for that most holy trinity of wise guy men: the Three Stooges of the East. (Boston, that is…). I do mean the perspiring trio of Edd Scheer, Ricky Russell ,and Mario Perrett. These guys are the Hamburger Helper® of the blooze. With them around, anything can happen, and usually does. Ed’s an amazing singer and frontman who always puts out the grease to make my head spin. Throw in Ricky on gootar and vocals and things brighten up. Add Mario, former teen idol, on vocals and sax and what’s left? Chaos! But, seriously, folks, these are my favorite guys cuz we all get a chance to sing and play more stupid songs than are necessary and to have random harmonies to boot! Come see!

We’re opening up the bomb bay this Thursday, to welcome back those spirited jokesters who may inflict moderate to severe Blooz damage to your soul. I’m talking about that fabulous glottal gurgler (and drummambulator) Mr. Edd Scheer. He’s draggin’ in his musical buddies, Mr. Ricky “King” Russell , on Qatar and vogelsang, and the modishly-styled cutie-pie of tenor sax,Mr. Mario Perrett. Everybody sings,sometimes together and in tune, and everybody gets a turn to embarrass himself and/or make bad jokes. Something to see. Czech it out.
And then, on Saturday, why not grab some extra chewing gum, lube up with Hai Karate® and join “Madhouse” for some fun and alcoholic madness at Captain Carlo’s. John Keegan© and his voracious ants are ready to crawl up your leg once again and make you dizzy on the dance floor. Come celebrate the end of summer(???)!
And don’t forget: for those of you in the prune juice and Cheez-Whiz® crowd, there’s always a great free show with the Good Old Salty Jazz Band this coming Monday at The Rose Baker Senior Center. From 1 to 3 these kats wail the greatest old toons in the world! It’s a national treasure! Shame on you for ignoring it!

I’m psyched this week cuz my favorite gaggle of comedic cats are showing up for another roast. It’s been a long time so let’s welcome back Mr. Ricky “King” Russell. Ricky had a terrible accident a while ago at CERN when a stray Higgs boson collided with one of his guitar licks,splitting several atoms and his pants. His tailor has pronounced him fit to play.
Next, there’s “Mr.Ed” Scheer, equine vocalist and world’s foremost Diaperene® expert, on drums. Ed is always laughing at anything I say, even when it’s not funny. Go figure.
Then, girls, there’s “Super Mario” Perrett, former rockstar and Hai Karate© spokesmodel, on tenor sax. Gawd, he is so handsome! See for yourself.
And finally, there’s me, but you know that. But seriously, folks, I love these guys; they all play and sing so well, and laugh so loud. I nearly choked to death on my fifth drink last time. You will, too. Come early and stay late! We hit at 8 P.M.
