Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them… ----Antoine de Saint-Exupéry ---The Little Prince

respect and simply accept this fact. My father, a learned, well-versed deepthinking man who was philosophical to the extreme, thought deep and hard before he finally shared his opinion of the matter. “What have you been smokin’?”

Greetings and fair weather to you all. It is now 4:20 in the a.m. of this f.m. day, as we sit to peck out the few remaining tidbits of musical lore in this, our annual Ain’t No Cure… edition of Nightflying, the weirdest paper route in the history of the reading, literate world. Of course, it’s always 4:20 a.m. when we commence to wrap this up. And it really doesn’t matter when we start, either. There’s some old maxim that says any task will grow to fill the time that you have to accomplish it, and only a fool would take longer. We’re here to tell you, we are that fool…

So. One could say that we came by this habit of using the editorial ‘we’ naturally, and it has been this way since oh-so-long ago…we are a team and we like it…

Many have asked us lately just why we tend to use the editorial “we” so often. It is a fair question, indeed. Fact is, when we were about 11 or so, some ‘doctors’ decided that we had Multiple Personality Syndrome, and our parents bought it and started to treat us as if there was something wrong. We thought it might be true, of course, so we looked into it to see what it was about. We were 14 when we realized that it is most definitely NOT true. Fact is, people who have this “illness” - the Sybil thing, actually - don’t realize it…and for that matter, the different “thems” are usually completely unaware of each other. We realized one day that we actually DID have several thems, but for the most part, we all got along. We all tended to work together as a team, in fact. So well that we would have contests between us for general achievements. (The cool thing about that is that, no matter what happens we always come out winning, and we always have a gang around to celebrate the matter…) When we announced this to our parents one day they were astounded…for after all, in my father’s mind doctors, cops, teachers and priests could do no wrong. They were, in a word, infallible…and we’d be very wise to

In General…….

It is Summer, people, and with the season, of course, there are many, many chances to party outside under the stars where God intended it to be. Unless, of course, when He doesn’t… Case in point, the recent Wakarusa Festival was a scary thing for many when the tornadic storms rolled through. The deluge hit and the place was flooded in the extreme. Indeed, it became a virtual Woodstock, with people slogging about in the mud and dancing in the rain, and trying their best to not only survive but to still salvage the Waka experience… Coming together via the love of music and partying with 20,000 of your closest new best friends. Thing is, the crowd becomes even more of a community when, er, excrementum occurrum. Everyone has the common problem of survival in these circumstances, and they tend to pull together to deal with it all. Virtually nobody had dressed for such a situation either. This was a time to live in your cut-offs and sandals and t-shirts…to go camping for 4 days and leave the civilized world far behind…to live, eat and sleep freely with no cares other than what bands to catch…a pre-planned bender as it were. Some of the band sets were cancelled, of course, and not all the bands that were scheduled got to play. But over the course of the week several dozen artists did perform, and sheer elation of the crowd made nearly all of them very special shows. That is, we think, the power of music… The following week was another story. The promoters worked diligently and were able

to get the grounds cleaned up and ready for the influx of thousands of fans who attended the Thunder On The Mountain country music camping festival… And thousands of fans came to the mountain to hear Toby Keith, Luke Bryan, Pat Green, Gretchen Wilson and more than 40 other acts, to camp and spend 3 days experiencing the joys of commeraderie with like-minded music fans. And it went off without a hitch, too. No weather issues…not even too hot…no equipment issues, and all went smoothly across the board. And we’re told that it will, indeed, be an annual affair. Kudos to Brett Mosiman and his staff, and the incredible people who own Mulberry Mountain, the Patton family, for cleaning up the facility so well, and what had to be the difficult task of repairing and rebuilding the venue so quickly. [An aside here. Nightflying photographer Meredith Mashburn, who was assigned to shoot both festivals, summed things up thusly: “It was like going from Woodstock to NASCAR…”] You can check out all the photos in special event categories at, and even download them for free… Look for the little QR codes throughout these pages to take you right to our site… The very next week we were in Eureka Springs for the Eureka Blues Festival. The entire affair was splendid, with several dozen blues music artists taking multiple stages, sidewalks, streets, lawns and parks to celebrate this truly original American artform. The town was packed, and the constant parade of the human circus created an intensely pleasant synergy across the board. But the icing on the cake was the Father’s Day Blues Picnic at Turpentine Creek wildlife refuge. This facility is very cool, very fun, and what’s more, very necessary. At the risk of ticking off anyone who thinks that such a facility is wrong to have the animals on display, our take on it is simple: the animals here have lives far better than they did before they arrived. Many of them were starved, dirty, diseased and in dire shape with their previous owners. Drug dealers that thought it would be cool to have a leopard of their own, but couldn’t be bothered to take care of it…that sort of thing. Our take is that, by being on “display” here, they are earning their keep. And given that they are well cared-for in every way - even doted on - they probably don’t really mind whatsoever being the stars of the show. The music ran all day and into the night. Turpentine Creek has a remarkable stage and excellent parking, and the hundreds of folks who attended all had a very fitting icing on the entire Eureka Bluesfest cake… The next weekend was the Fort Smith Riverfront Blues Festival. Funny…we saw many of the same folks that we saw in Eureka the week before… The living legend that is Johnny Winter, along with a dozen other bands and artists, played for crowds in the thousands. With The Harry E. Kelley Park right at the end of Garrison Avenue, after the shows, of course, the crowds filled up the clubs to their max. It was a fantastic time, and the sheer energy of that carnival was a treasure to behold… (Just why do we enjoy this occupation? Go figure…)

In Particular…….

In exciting news for Arkansas, the good folks at Choctaw Casino, just across the line into Oklahoma, have revamped and rebuilt and created a Gilley’s nightclub at the casino. These clubs have earned a reputation across the country for always having excellent food, drink and party atmostpheres. They present a lot of major concerts, too, having the custom-built stages and concert halls and sound and lights and service and deep enough pockets to feature only the best touring artists. To be honest, though, we haven’t been there yet. We plan to have a first-hand look at the newest Gilley’s for our next edition so watch for it…

In Closing…….

Well, folks that’s about all the time left on li’l Mickey’s hands so we’d best be closing this chapter and getting these pages off to the printer. By now, they’re probably pacing the floors and talking rather colorfully about us…saying the kinds of things that we can’t print in a newspaper or even around repectable company. Be sure to keep an eye on our website,, as we update our content all the time. It never fails. As soon as we go to press something big gets announced. Nowadays, with cyberspace realities, we can inform you immediately of breaking music news. Oh…we almost forgot… Watch the website and in the next several weeks you’ll have a chance to win some neat stuff…like concert tickets, t-shirts, trips, music and even cash (!) Details will come later, but it is something many have been asking for...a much more robust interactivity with us in cyberspace. (Hey...after all we are nothing if not space cadets...) We're starting something new and hopefully big here. We've been revamping the website to make it much more user-friendly, especially for access via a smart device.

But you can only do it at And if you act just right, we might even come to your house and fix you dinner or mow your lawn. ( won't be that cool...)

IT'S MORE FUN, Y'ALL! Get ready for burgers, bull-ridin’ and a boot scootin’ good time! The original honky tonk is now open.

Getting Back to Our ROOTS

Fayetteville ROOTS Festival

Northwest Arkansas to once again celebrate its heritage - music & food & culture - oh my! ---Nancy Paddock What is the best music festival in the Ozarks in August? The Fayetteville Roots Festival is happening August 22nd through the 25th. Well, it might be the best music festival of the year but I might be biased, I love roots music. The Fayetteville Roots Festival has become a nationally renowned in just 4 short years. Actually it became internationally renown and for a very good reason; the music. Some of the best roots and folk musicians in the business have graced the stages of the Roots Fest in the last few years…names like John Prine, Guy Clark, David Grisman and Joy Kills Sorrow just to name a few. And this year is no different. How about the acclaimed Del McCoury Band, the premier bluegrass for last 50 years or Dobro master Jerry Douglas or the folk diva Iris Dement? Not bad for openers but there’s so much more such as the incredibly talented singer songwriter John Fullbright, rising star Hayes Carll and folk icon Mary Gauthier. It’s not just the music though, it’s the incredible locally grown food prepared by some of the best restaurants in the area, local theater, live art presentations and community events. The main stage is at Walton Arts Center, with other stages including George’s Majestic Lounge, Greenhouse Grille, Kingfish Dive Bar, Fayetteville Public Library and the Fayetteville Farmer’s Market. Trust me on the weekend of Fayetteville Roots Festival all of Fayetteville will be getting folky. Nora Struthers

voice she has and what a talent for the plain spoken explicit depictions of faith, family, life and love. If you are not a fan before you hear her you will be afterward. Jerry Douglas is the name you evoke when you are talking about dobro. His 13 Grammys might prove that point, as well as the talent that he has shared the stage with.

since. He has garnered a Grammy nomination with his very first album, was invited to sing at the Chuck Berry Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Tribute and has been heralded as one

Del McCoury Band

Let do a quick run down of the music you be hearing at Roots. First, the Del McCoury Band one of bluegrasses’ mighty forces. With 13 albums and two Grammy nominations and one Grammy to his credit Del has influenced the bluegrass music world for fifty years. From his start in the hillbilly honktonks to the stage of the Grand Ol Opry to festival stages with audiences in the hundreds of thousands

Jerry Douglas

His musical credits include the likes of Eric Clapton, Dr. John, Paul Simon, Munford & Sons, Keb’Mo’ and Alison Krauss and Union Station just to name a few. A must see icon in the world of music. Oklahoma native John Fullbright burst upon the folk music scene in 2009 and there has been no stopping him

Hayes Carll

of the best singer songwriters to come alone in a long time. Folk sensation Hayes Carll is a maelstrom of talent. Intelligent, funny and irreverent, he is fearless in the face of mediocrity. He connects. Definite must see show. The Carper Family is coming to Roots this year and you will be so glad they are. Do you love three part harmonies, hot picking, soaring fiddle and thumping bass? Do

Iris Dement

Del McCoury still sets a new standard to his music every time he plays. Arkansas born folk songstress Iris Dement brings her complex beautiful emotive talents to Roots this year. What a



John Fullbright

Rev. Peyton's Big Damn Band

you like old style country music with new style meanings? Do you want to be entertained by Austin’s best country Americana trio? Then the Carper Family is the band for you. Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band has a big sound and an even bigger presence. With just three members and some hellious washboard playing this group takes the stage

The Carper Family Band

Fayetteville’s Shannon Wurst is destined for great things too. This sweet songbird will make you smile, sigh and sing along. She has been touring a lot since the release of her last album so it will be a real treat to see her in her home town. New York’s Anthony DaCosta has been wowing audiences since the tender age of 15. Now a Columbia University graduate in his twenties he is still wowing them. DeCosta’s intelligent lyrics and awesome guitar licks make him a mainstay in the folk world.

Raina Rose and Rebecca Loebe

Fayetteville born-Oklahoma-raised Carter Sampson is Oklahoma’s gift to the music world. She makes an impression by just walking on stage and captures your heart as soon as she starts singing. You can hear the red dirt in her songs and the twang in her soul. Go see her so you can fall in love again.

Honey Dewdrops

with more passion and energy then a Sunday church revival on Saturday night. The sweet melodic sound of The Honey Dew Drops will return again this year. As will the song bird Nora Struthers. Nora has a one of a kind sound that you will take with you long after she has left the stage. Two of my favorites are back this year, Raina Rose and Rebecca Loebe. These women possess two of the finest voices you will ever hear. Each has been collecting acclaim with their separate careers. Raina is one of the subjects of Sara Terry’s documentary FOLK, just released this year. Rebecca was a contestant on NBC’s The Voice in 2011 and her last two albums charted on both the Americana and Roots music charts. As solo acts their songs and music are enthralling, when they join each other on stage their vocals soar to great heights. These women are destined for great things.

So much music so little time. I can’t even list all the great acts here. Get yourself a full festival pass at and find out what Roots really means. It’s not just music, it’s food, community and a feeling of connection with what is good in the world. Come be a part of Arkansas in its Natural state August 22nd through the 25th in Fayetteville Arkansas. I will see you there!

Weevil. Known for his unique and inspiring styles in American Roots and Blues, Weevil’s sophomore release The Teaser was named as Mojo Magazine’s “Top 10 Best Blues Album Of The Year”. With a new album slated for release in 2013, Guitarist and Vocalist Little G Weevil is staying busy promoting his work through various live shows across the globe. Originally from Hungary, Weevil would soon make his move to the United States. His first blues musical influence would be the legendary John Lee Hooker. After relocating to Memphis, Tennessee he would go on to share the stage with the likes of Anson Funderburgh, Big Jack Johnson, and E.G. Kight to name a few. After Little G. Weevil exits the stage, the 2013 International Blues Challenge Band winner the Selwyn Birchwood Band will perform. Residing in Florida, Selwyn won the 2013 Albert King Award for

Little G. Weevil “Best Guitarist” at the 2013 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee.

Following the Selwyn Birchwood Band will be Canadian Jazz and Blues vocalist Shakura S’aida. Due to her strong vocal presence being felt in households across the world, S’aida has received much recognition for her music. Throughout her career, S’aida has performed at New York’s famed Apollo Theatre. She also performed in a back-up

at New York’s famed Apollo Theatre. She also performed in a back-up choir alongside Patti Labelle. To date, S’aida has released three albums including Blueprint, Brown Sugar, and her most recent 2012 two-disc album Time.

Closing the festival’s first night will be the Zac Harmon Band. At the tender age of nine, Zac Harmon became fascinated with the Guitar.

After releasing his 2002 debut album Live At Babe & Ricky’s Inn, Harmon received much

Following Salt & Pepper will be the Spa City Blues Society’s band representatives the Gil Franklin Band. Singing with road-weary conviction and writing lyrics from the heart, lead guitarist, lap steel player, and vocalist Gil Franklin sings mostly original material, based on solid roots music. Longtime band mate Jim Harlow holds down the bass while John Roach keeps the rhythmic appeal on the drums. Gil Franklin’s partner in crime on the Guitar is none other than Dan Sokoloski.

Salt & Pepper Following Gil Franklin will be Hot Springs, Arkansas’ own Hump Night Blues Band. The band will take to the stage to perform in an All-Star Jam. Featuring Larry Womack (guitar, vocals), Steve Danger (drums, vocals), and Rooster Meeks (bass), the members of the Hump Night Blues Band have provided great music to Arkansas since the early 90s. Performing at various venues in and around Hot Springs, the band has made a positive name for themselves by providing phenomenal chemistry and maintaining life-long friendships through the

Shakura S'Aida recognition for his music. In 2004, Harmon and the Mid-South Blues Revue won the Blues Foundation’s “Best Unsigned Band” award at the International Blues Challenge. A year later, after releasing the album The Blues According to Zacariah, Harmon would be named XM Satellite Radio’s “Best New Blues Artist” which was followed by a 2006 win at the Blues Music Awards for “Best New Artist Debut”. In 2007, Harmon would be named to the Blues Foundation’s Board of Directors. In 2009, Harmon would win the “Little Milton” Guitar award for “Outstanding Guitar Player” at the Jackson Music Awards. In 2010, Harmon was presented with a Peavey Award by Peavey Electronics founder and CEO Hartley D. Peavey during the “Mississippi Celebrates Its Grammy Legacy” celebration. Shortly before the Zac Harmon Band exits the stage, after-parties will kick-off at The Big Chill, The Ohio Club, and Fat Jack’s. Beginning at 9pm, The Big Chill will welcome 2Blu & The Lucky Stiffs for another night of fun. (Other acts will be announced shortly for The Ohio Club and Fat Jack’s.) There will be NO COVER at any of the

Gil Franklin Band music. Currently, the Hump Night Blues Band can be seen performing every Wednesday night at Hot Springs’ own musical venue The Ohio Club as part of the Hump Night Blues Jam. Since starting the successful weekly jam, the band has quickly gained notoriety and notable mentions throughout the area. During the show the Hump Night Blues Band will have special guests join them on stage for a spectacular performance. Following the Hump Night Blues Band, the Brandon Santini Band will take to the stage. Featuring Brandon Santini (vocals, harp), Jeff Jensen (guitar), Bill Ruffino (bass), and Brian Wells (drums), the band combines unique styles of Mississippi Hill Country, Delta, and Chicago West Coast Blues. Previously known for fronting Delta High-

Warren Haynes, the Bart Walker Band never disappoint with their upbeat and energetic performances. In June 2012, the band made their first appearance in Hot Springs at the Belvedere Golf Club. Playing in front of a massive and excited audience, the band showcased their in-

Brandon Santini fluential styles in front of a standing-room crowd. In 2013, Bart Walker released his much-anticipated follow-up album Waiting on Daylight. Walker continues to tour as part of Ruf Record’s Blues Caravan Tour. Closing out the 17th Annual Hot Springs Blues Festival will be the powerful blues/rock trio Southern Hospitality. Combining the electrical forces of lap steel player Damon Fowler, high-octane boogie pianist/vocalist Victor Wainwright, and eclectic blues guitar slinger JP Soars, the trio formed to create a new and unique style to the blues.

Bart Walker Band What began as an impromptu jam at a blues festival in Florida would turn into a gig on the Legendary Rhythm and Blues Pre-Cruise Party for the trio. Released in 2013, the trio’s debut release Easy Livin debuted to the International Roots music world. Produced by Tab Benoit and recorded at Benoit’s Whiskey Bayou Studio in Louisiana, the record keeps its Americana and Southern Soul roots music intact. While Southern Hospitality finishes their set, after-parties will begin for the final night of the festival. The Big Chill will welcome 2Blu & The Lucky Stiffs back for a third night. The Ohio Club and Fat Jack’s will host their own events for the final night as well.

The duo would make it through the finals held at Memphis, Tennessee’s Orpheum Theater during the 2013 International Blues Challenge. Known mostly for their unique interpretations of Blues and R&B cover tunes, Tony Nardi (vocals, keys) and Eddie Mobley (vocals, drums) have been performing together since 1969. In 1970, while stationed in Bangkok, the duo recorded and pressed two original tracks including “Linda” and “Man Of My Word”. Approximately 40 years later, a Northern Soul DJ from England would receive a copy of these rare tracks and would mix the songs into his set. Shortly after, Salt & Pepper would discover that in January of 2009, a copy of the album would sell on Ebay in excess of $3,000.

Hump Night Blues Band way for six years, Brandon Santini started playing harp at the tender age of 15. With influences such as Muddy Waters, Kim Wilson, and Junior Wells, many listeners are infatuated with Santini’s inspirational techniques and sounds which are comparable to that of legendary musician and singer John Popper. Currently signed to Electro Glide Records, the Brandon Santini Band has released several albums including Songs of Love, Money, and Misery along with ‘Big Dog’ Mercer. Most recently, Brandon Santini was nominated for the “Sean Costello Rising Star Award” in the 2013 Blues Blast Magazine Awards. Following the Brandon Santini Band will be the Bart Walker Band. Band members Bart Walker (guitar, vocals), CJ Wilder (bass), and Austin Curcuruto (drums) showcase adverse and inspiring sounds during each live performance. In 2011, the band would release their debut Blues/Rock album Who I Am, which featured 11 stand-out tracks. One year later, the Bart Walker Band would place 2nd in the International Blues Challenge, with Bart Walker winning the title of “Best Guitar Player” at the annual competition. With influences such as Stevie Ray Vaughan, Derek Trucks, and

Dangerous Idiots to record live album and shoot DVD at The White Water Tavern Public invited to join in the record production as co-producers

---Peter Read On Saturday, July 20, the legendary White Water Tavern will be the site of a live album & DVD production featuring The Dangerous Idiots and YOU. Also on the bill will be Adam Faucett, who will open the show. Due to the incredible feel of this infamous venue, not to mention the great acoustics of the room, the White Water has been the scene of many a live recording through the years. Blues Patrol, Burger, Amy Garland, and Bonnie Montgomery are but some of the artists who’ve used the club to capture their live work. The importance of recording live is that, while many bands can play live shows well, few musicians have had enough studio experience to really be able to use it as a tool as it should be used. They’re used to playing live shows, but it takes a special arrangement to really capture their live energy…hence, the “live” recording. The Dangerous Idiots band consists of Aaron

The Dangerous Idiots

Sarlo (vocals, guitar, ukelele), Jake Rutherford (bass), Leewood Thomas (drums), and backup drummer Randy Harsey. The group has previously released several recordings, but this will be their first live album, and possibly the first-ever DVD made at the club by anyone. The good folks actually shooting the video will be Mike Poe, Christy Ward and Cody Riggan, with Jason Tedford at the helm of the audio recorder. Patrons will also have the chance to sign up as “co-producers” and have their names listed on the actual releases for having been at the event. Artist Chris Raymond, of Sonuvagon Studios, is providing the cover artwork (as he did for this edition of Nightflying.) Mostar Records, the Dangerous Idiot’s label, will be releasing this project internationally in the next several months. So, Saturday, July 20 at the White Water Tavern, come be an extra in a concert film!! Come be a part of a Dangerous Idiots album!!

Come out and drink so much beer and have such a good time that when you finally watch the film you’ll say proudly, “Holy crap!! I was there?? I don’t remember any of that night...” Come show your love for The Dangerous Idiots, for Adam Faucett, and especially for one of the coolest live music venues in the state of Arkansas, The White Water Tavern. ---PR

Adam Faucett will open the show



Dugan‘s checks in this month with a very fine line-up. On the bill are Raj Arnold, Luke Johnson, the Karla Case Band, Josh Green, Nickel Biscuit, The Becker Brothers, Shannon Boshears, White Collar Criminals and a lot more. And never forget that the last Thursday of each month is a huge and eclectic jazz Jam… Caught a set the other night with Barrett Baber and Colby, and as always was quite entertained. The two have been playing together for years and it shows. It’s one of those things where the musicians seem to be able to read each other’s minds and can anticipate each other’s moves. It’s cool. (I can’t even anticipate my own moves…let along someone else’s…) The food here is truly superb, the service is beautiful and the vibes cannot be beat in The Altered State. What‘s more, there‘s never a cover charge…and I for one like that… Dugan s is located at 403 E. 3rd. For bookings call Don between 2 and 4 p.m. weekdays. Call (501)244-0542 for details and information....... Stickyz Rock n Roll Chicken Shack, as always, is one of the primary party rooms in the Altered State, and has been so for over a decade.

Johnson, Tsar Bombs, Glittercore, Nick Moss, War Chief, Brown Soul Shoes, Quaker City, Night Hawk, and a lot more. The chicken coop is open and doing extremely well (the club’s outdoor patio). I caught up to Patrice Pike recently at the club and as usual was blown away. Patrice is a very talented singer-songwriter and performer, who, with only her drummer create more music than a lot of full bands. See the Sound listings for the dates and complete line-up. But then you should know that by now... To reach the club call (501)372-7707, and for bookings call Chris King at (501)372-1151....... And moving down the street, The Rev Room, the concert room in the River Market, always has an exciting calendar.

Cadillac Three, Damn Arkansan and more. And don‘t forget that outdoor deck facing the river, which will have live acoustic players throughout the warm season. While you re there, check out the food at Rumba, it is, in a word, excellent. For bookings contact Chris King at (501)372-1151.……

caliber live musicians in a very cool room. I just learned, too, that they are getting away from the “dueling pianos” theme, and plan to switch to regular players on a nightly basis. While I personally really like the dueling piano format (being a piano player myself), the folks at the club have realized that this is not terribly attractive to the college-age party crowd…hence the format change. In the coming weeks look for Tommy Orr, Geoffrey My-

Midtown Billiards checks in with a stellar band line-up for the next several weeks. On the bill are Funkanights, Interstate Buffalo, Boom-Boom, Cadillac Jackson, Moonshine Mafia (!), Stiff Necked Fools, Classy San Diego, Shawn James & The Shape Shifters and more. And Midtown is the home of the very best burger in The Altered State and then some. It make take a while because at those hours they club is slammed, but it is well worth it once you sink your teeth into it. (“That hour”, for most, is usually between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m.) Midtown is an authentically funky New Orleans style poolhall dive where folks in the club bidness close out the night, and it s open 7 days a week until daybreak. For bookings call Conan, at (501)372-7110....... And while we‘re on the subject, I‘m happy to report that the other Midtown, the new TCs Midtown Grill in Conway, is essentially changing the city. Within the past 3 years or so, Conway, Arkansas has come alive with clubs and watering holes…and this is still a “dry county”. (I don’t think it will be so for very long…) With live bands on weekends, lots of pool tables, shuffleboards, an enormous concert sound and light system, a full bar and even an extensive menu of bar food, the room has quickly become a hit with the Conway party crowd. Set to appear in the coming weeks are The Revolutioners, Silversa, Official Modern Superstar, Brown Soul Shoes, One Way Road, Raising Grey, Third Degree, Jet 420, Mother Hubbard & The Regulators, Jason Greenlaw & The Groove, Aces Wild, The Muddlestuds, Dirty Lindsey and a lot more.

The Fort Smith Blues Festival was one of the largest festivals yet. Nearperfect weather set the stage for a nearperfect line-up. Kudos to all involved. And thanks for such a cool event. After way too many years, one of the Altered State’s favorite-ever bands is set to magically reappear. Big Al & The Heavyweights will be bringing their rowdy brand of swamp-mix-music to Webby D’s on August 1. The band’s potent gumbo of Americana combines the musical ingredients of blues, jazz and Zydeco, spiced with roots rock and lots of energy and fun. Founding members included Warren Haynes, who went on to become a driving force with the Allman Bros and later founded Gov’t Mule, Rick Gerken of Sweethearts of the Rodeo and of course, Big Al. The band has recorded five CD’s of original material. Each of the CD’s have had songs featured as “Blues Breakers of the Week”, on original Blues Brother Dan Aykroyd’s House of Blues Radio Show. The band’s prolific songwriters have had their tunes recorded by many other artists. These would include Grammy-award winning blues artist and winner of the Albert King award, the late Michael Burks’ “Make It Rain”, blues legend Earl Gaines’ “Why Can’t We Be Alone”, Johnny Jones and Charles “Mr. Dynamite” Walker’s “Wrestlin’ with The Blues” and Zydeco kingpin CJ Chenier’s, “Eat More Crawfish”. Bruce Iglauer, founder and president of Alligator Records, personally produced the band’s latest CD, Nothin’ But Good Lovin’. Big Al & The Heavyweights consists

of Big Al Lauro, drums, vocals; James Bass, guitar, fiddle, saxophone and vocals; Dean Galatas, bass and vocals; and John ‘The Colonel’ Fuhrmann, harmonica and vocals. Opening this show will be local legend Mark Albertson. Other artists set to appear at Webby’s in the next several weeks include the 1 Oz. Jig, Moonshine Mafia, Dirty Pesos, Isayah’s All Stars, Starroy, Gator Moose, Toto Jojo, Country Jesus & Friends, Groovement, Shawn James, Cluster Pluck, Weakness For Blondes, 3 If By Sky, the Paul Benjamin Band, Bryant Carter and more.Webby D’s is one of the coolest music venues in the area and you should check it out. For bookings call Jim at (479)4945661……. R. Landry’s is one of the strongest and most happening clubs in town. Set to appear in the next several weeks are Jamie Lou, Prince Albert, Willin’ & Able, Mark Albertson, Joe Sundell, Brandon White & Luke Pruitt, Gary Hutchison, Oreo Blue, Jeff Kearney Triage, Grant Pierson, The Bannister Brothers Band, Leah & The Mojo Doctors, Tom Ware and The Rachel Fields Band. There’s no cover charge, but you’ll want to put something in the tip jar on the way out. To reach R. Landry’s by phone, call (479)783-2505……. Neumeier’s Rib Room has a pretty full roster of talent. On the bill in the coming weeks are

Candlebox, Hot Lix (a Hair band tribute), The 17th Floor, Corey Smith, The Dirty Guv’nahs, Whitey Morgan & The 78s with Judge Parker, Blackjack Billy with Hillbilly Vegas, Whiskey Myers, Cadillac Three, The Reverend Horton Heat with Powerglide. For bookings call Bill at (479)494RIBS (7427)……. Rooster’s is partying down every night of the week. True, the live bands are only Thursday through Saturday, but the club is open 7 days a week until 5 a.m. In the coming weeks look for The Matt Dodd Band, Highwater Gamble, Fabbgasker, Brian Hughes, Steve Dimmit, Chicken Pot Pie, Crossroads, Dave Randall, War Pony and more. Rooster’s features several levels inside the club, as well as perhaps the coolest outdoor deck in the state, overlooking Garrison Avenue. There are pool tables, arcade games, live bands and decent bar food. For bookings contact (479)783COCK (2625)....... Set to appear at The Long Horn Saloon in the coming weeks are Matt Stell, Velcro Pygmies, Tragikly White, Kevin Fowler, Doug Stone and more. To reach the club for directions and further information, call (479)6342200……. Hero’s is temporarily closed due to having to relocate. It seems the own-

ers of the building (the whole block, actually), have decided to completely renovate the property. (The same folks put the new stop ‘n’ rob store on the corner of that block recently…) We’ll have information on the new location when it’s open… For bookings at the club call (479)784-5055……. Old Town of Fort Smith has live music most nights of the week, but we were unable to reach the club before presstime so you will just have to call and ask them. Old Town is open every day and there’s seldom a cover charge.. Call (479)782-1999 for information....... Out on South Hwy. 71, Beef O’Brady’s checks in this month with a somewhat sparse calendar. Look for dates with Larry B., Jazz After 5, Terri & The Executives and more. The food here is quite good and the crowd that hangs here is one partying, music-loving bunch of fools (the best kind…) For bookings call Kim at (479)6469464……. The Movie Lounge is back in our pages this go-round. (We have been unable to reach the club the last couple editions…) Set to appear are the Jon Dooly Experience, The Rain Kings, Larry B., The Hardy Winburn Experience, some guy named robb, Barrett Baber, Sky Smeed & Joe Mack, Gary Hutchison & John Magness, The Smokin’ Crawdads, Blue Fiddle, and Tom Ware performing every Tuesday.

Starlight Series Returns:

R. Landry’s and Indie-pendant agency join forces for concerts

Jimbo Mathus

---Dori Colston The Starlight Series Returns September 11 and October 16, 2013: The Starlight Series is back! R. Landry’s and it’s co-owner Dori Colston has once again teamed up with her other business, The Indie-pendent Agency, to bring Fort Smith, Arkansas it’s second year of intimate music Starlight Series. Differing from last years’ live music and food series which was held and coproduced by The Movie Lounge, R. Landry’s, and The Indie-pendent Agency, this years’ series is a live, intimate Music Series without the featured food and drinks. Also new this year is the locale. The Starlight Series has moved to The Five Star Building at 100 N. 8th Street, in downtown Fort Smith. Previous noteworthy music productions have been held in this locale like The 801 Music Series put together by acclaimed booking agent and musician Dick Renko. The Starlight Series has well-established the standard for providing an intimate, world class performance in a laid back atmosphere by known and unknown artists. Last year’s line up contained phenomenal musicians like songwriters Brett Jones (7 time number one billboard charted songwriter of songs such as, “That’s How Country Boys Roll” made famous by Jason Aldean), Susan Gibson, the songwriter behind The Dixie Chicks’ “Wide Open Spaces”, and “Sister Sevens” Patrice Pike. Indie musicians (unknown to the masses) were included in the line up like Carter Sampson, Wendy Colonna, and Shelley King. It’s hard to believe, but this year’s line up may just be better than last year’s, with artists like internationally known and established folk artist Mary Gauthier and Americana/Blues/Rock musician Jimbo Mathus. The first of the two Starlight Series events is to be held on September 11th, 2013 with songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jimbo Mathus. Surely you recall how Jimbo “masterminded the hyper-ragtime, jump blues act Squirrel Nut Zippers,” based on Jimbo’s Mississippi area influence. This was a project that “started as a fun little art project but eventually sold a million-plus CDs in the 1990s, with a standout hit single “Hell” that went gold. Of course if that doesn’t impress you, then I’m sure his blues guitar work in the early 2000’s with Buddy Guy will when “Mathus toured with Guy off and on from 2001 to 2003.” and “recorded with Guy on his album Sweet Tea, and the Grammy Award winning album blues singer.” Opening for Jimbo Mathus will be local greats Tyrannosaurus Chicken. This roots/blues/

trance-dance band is quickly lining themselves out to make a huge national and possibly international impression on the live music scene in the very near future, having already made a regular habit of attracting crowds to venues across much of the United States. If you haven’t been keeping up with “T-Chicken”, get on it. This particular show with Jimbo Mathus and Tyrannosaurus Chicken promises to be one of the most stellar shows put together in Fort Smith, AR this year and possibly this decade. (I wonder who will play more instruments, Jimbo, Bob or Rachel?) The second show of this series will be held on October 16, 2013. Live Music “buffs” can see the legendary folk singer-songwriter Mary Gauthier performing Live! Mary Gauthier is multi-award winning, Grand Ol’ Opry featured, and more! There are many contributing factors to her success, all impressive, including her honest, straight-forward lyrics that tend to reach inside listeners minds to find the common bond between us all. More often that not, she leaves audiences emotionally raw, a trait that few musicians have. It’s a talent that even the greats of the music industry have noticed as Mary’s songs have been praised by both Bob Dylan and Tom Waits and recorded by Jimmy Buffet, Blake Shelton, Boy George, Tim McGraw, Mike Farris, Candi Staton and others. Opening for Mary will be another stunning songwriter out of Austin, Texas: Robyn Ludwick. Robyn’s impressive songwriting skills, musicianship, and performances have been known to bring crowds from a loud chatter to a complete silence. Robyn’s accolades backs it. Amongst her most recent accomplishments are #1 albums in Europe, The #1 Album of 2011 in Texas with Out of These Blues, and being voted in the top 10 Female musicians of 2011 by No Depression Magazine. It’s easy to see that songwriting and performing music is a family trait, considering that her brothers are Bruce and Charlie Robinson. What’s even cooler is that Robyn and Mary share a common tie, having both been produced by all-star musician and producer Gurf Morlix. Many may recognize Gurf from his work producing Lucinda Williams, Ray Willie Hubbard, Ray Bonneville, Said Cleaves, Sam Baker, and Ruthie Foster (to name a few). Tickets for each event will be available online for a special pre-sale price of $30 here. Buy tickets for The Starlight Series Presents: Mary Gauthier. Tickets will also be for sale at the door for $35, and drinks available for sale

guitar. That was back in 1958, which means he is a few years behind me (and millennia ahead of me musically). Best thing about Mike, beyond even his guitar virtuosity and his musical flexibility, is his ability to gather extraordinary talents and let ‘em shine. This is a blindingly good example of that very trait. There are eighteen tracks on this album, every one a gem of its own type, every one featuring some cat you never heard before or not like this anyway. Guitarists, vocalists, pianists, organists, saxists (I don’t think that’s a word – Ed.) and drummists (now cut it out – Ed.) all getting to do their thing(s) for your amusement / enjoyment. Still not as good as catching one of his shows live, this is a damned good demonstration of the hot and the cool of blues-rock. Go to for more info, or call him at 501-658-0385 or write to Mike Dollins Band, PO Box 637, Bryant AR 72089. Mike thanks Joe and Rhonda Pitts at Lonesome Oak Studios for making this happen.

---Doug Treadway

I had an idea and by the time my ancient Mac booted up, I forgot it. I’m listening to some Eric Clapton, his homage to Robert Johnson, and I must say I like him this way better than ever before. I began to learn to play guitar with a Mel Bay Guitar Method book and then got a Mel Bay Chord book. A contemporary guitarist I admire (and envy) has a book out called “Mel Bay Presents Acoustic Fingerstyle Guitar Workshop by Richard Gilewitz” which comes with a CD and a DVD for $22.95. Inquire via for more. Another book I ran across recently that I like is “Rockin’ The Blues,” a fakebook with photos and short pieces by and/or about folks such as Robbie Robertson, Duane Allman, Mick Taylor, and Keith Richards, plus a CD and a brief explication on tablature, all for $19.95 from While I’m on free commercials, I want to give a shout out to PC Hardware here in Little Rock. The shop is also called Light Innovations and it was for that aspect I went in. I needed a bracket to hang a new (to me) ceiling fan and not only did I find it there (after hitting a few other places first), when I asked how much it was going to cost me, the guy said: “Nothing; just come see me first next time you need something like this.” (Which I did.) That’s customer service I can live with. On the subject of books, I reviewed “Woodsongs” in these pages some years ago. The author, folksinger Michael Johnathon, has a show on KUAR. I forget what hour and night, but you can look it up. I could too, but you really wouldn’t want me to make it that easy on you, right? Jean Stapleton died recently at 90. She acted on stage and screen, both large and small, but her defining role was Edith Bunker on TV’s “All In The Family” as the ever-suffering wife of Archie (Carroll O’Connor). And bathing beauty Esther Williams, who swam into acting stardom some 70 years ago, has died at 91. As a teenager she set the 100-meter freestyle record and after her movie career was a TV commentator on Olympic synchronized swimming. Another actor has died. James Gandolfini succumbed to a heart attack at 51. He is most noted for his role as Tony Soprano on TV, but was also a stage star. And speaking of stars, Bobby ‘Blue’ Bland’s magnificent voice has been stilled after dominating the R & B charts for several decades. He was 83. Author Jack Vance passed at 96 and Deacon Jones, a hallof-fame defensive lineman for the Los Angeles Rams and part of the Fearsome Foursome, has gone on to new glory at 74. Journalist Michael Hastings, who wrote the article in Rolling Stone that led to General Stanley McChrystal’s removal as the U. S. Commander in Afghanistan, was killed in a car crash at 33. I feel I gave Frank Wood short shrift last issue. I met Frank in Fayetteville in 1980 and was immediately taken with his ability and humility. I served as Art Director on the set of a tape he made at the public access TV station there, uncharacteristically shunning the spotlight in favor of a far greater talent. Frank was a gentle man, which is not to say he could not be rough and tough. He was strong and athletic and able to take down someone twice his size, but he preferred the peaceful path. It took a lot to get him riled up and that usually was something like a bully picking on someone smaller or weaker. He was a true White Knight, coming to the aid of fair maidens and the defenseless. He would not slay dragons, but teach them manners, show them the error of their ways, and lead them onto a different, less violent, more benevolent path. He was that rare artist who had no problem sharing the glory. I’ve never known anyone else quite like him. He could speak authoritively on Hudson automobiles or western heroes or Far Eastern philosophy or well, just about any subject you might bring up to him. He had a keen sense of humor and was able to laugh at himself as well as at the follies of humanity at large.



How many folks have you known who could stand flat-footed, leap straight up into the air, do a full back flip, and land in exactly the same spot? That was Frank Wood. He also took me in one night when my then girlfriend kicked me out in the middle of the night and I had nowhere to go. He rescued many of us stray cats (I had been neutered already). He sometimes was bitten for his troubles, but he had a devoted friend in me and in so many guys like me. I heard it said at his memorial service that if you knew him, you loved him and if you didn’t love him, you just didn’t know him. So true. He was not a churchgoer, nor a religious man, but he was one of the most spiritual beings I have ever encountered and, as I said at his memorial service, I am a better person for having known him. I’d like to take a moment to apologize to all the folks who’ve sent us music via the internet. My gateway is being blocked somehow and I can’t access my email account. Maybe somebody sent me some malware or my machine is just worn out. Anybody want to send or bring me a brand new Mac? Hey, I’ll even bring you a cold drink while you hook it up for me, roll you a smoke, whatever.

CALLIOPE BLUES Justin McGoldrick Indie There are thirteen tunes here, all but one written by Justin himself, and that one (“Hungover and Broke”) he co-wrote with bass player Jimmy Young. McGoldrick sings and plays guitar on all tracks. He opens with the erotically charged “Foxfire” and closes with a number that might resonate with our fans (“White Water Blues”). Other players involved in this project, which was recorded at Wolfman Studios last year, are Judy Warner (fiddle and organ), Bonnie Montgomery (piano and backing vocals), Sanford Tollette (harmonica), Amy McBride (backing vocals), and John Mauldin (bass and backing vocals). Oh yeah, and the aforementioned Jimmy Young on bass. Johnny Cash was an early influence and though his voice is not as deep, his style is somewhat similar. He comes from Australia, but has moved on to the U S of A and is currently working with a punkabilly band called The P-47’s. He can be found on ReverbNation and Facebook and jpmcgoldrick (Twitter) as well as (for emails). THE BEST OF MDB 1968 – 2013 Mike Dollins Band JAM Dollins has favored us with a few new discs over the past several years and they’ve all been dandy little bits of rockin’ blues, but this is a bit different. This one goes back a long way and covers disparate combos, though none going back to the first band he put together when he was but a mere stripling of 13 and the R & B he heard on the radio inspired him to take up

TALES FROM TATTLETOWN The Smittles Indie This is some truly unusual music. When it started playing, I thought ‘huh, sounds Brazilian, like Flora Purim’ and then, whoa, it changed, charged off in a whole ‘nother direction, as singer Stephanie Smittle slipped into her best Tammy Wynette impression. Recorded at Wolfman Studios, the album is an amazingly eclectic collection of ten tunes written or co-written by Smittle. Joined by John Davies on guitar, vocals and whistling, Jim McGehee on keys, Wythe Walker on guitars and vocals, Roy Wittenberg on drums and vocals, Matthew Gray on tuba, Clifford Hawkins (aka da hawk) on trumpet, S. Koch on harmonica and whistling, Patrick Lindsey on percussion, Lyn Noricks on mandolin, Keri Reid on saxophone, Matt Stone on pedal steel, Chris Thompson on trombone, and Tom Ware on mandolin and fiddle, she runs the gamut of musical expression. There’s sweetly sad and gaily romping and more than a little tra la la. As my Carolyn used to say, “how fun.” Oh, there is also a credit of special thanks to the Bottom of the Bucket Choir, which includes someone named Tina Turner. Just to round it out, Michael Taylor did the album art, but I find no contact information.

CHAPTER ONE Downday Indie Rock ‘n’ roll. Good rock ‘n’ roll. Makes me wish I knew more about the act playing on this disc. PINGADDAMIDY! The New Iberians Argess Well, hell. I no sooner get back home than I get some music makes me pine for da bayou. The title song is a clever number and the lead track is cool too, but “The Barbecue Song” leaves me cold – too repetitious by far and anyway, they really don’t know how to barbeque down there – give me the Sims hot sauce on a rib sandwich any day. Oops, now I’m gettin’ hungry. Evan Shlaes, who plays accordion and sings, wrote all nine songs on this CD. He lets Claes Almroth, who plays damned good harmonica, take the lead vocal on one cut and bassist Linc McGrath take another. Most of the bass playing is by J. Michael Kearsey; Fred Ingram is the drummer; Clark

songs). Drummer Tom Hambridge co-wrote a few. Also appearing here are guitarist Robert Britt, bassist Tommy MacDonald, and pianist / organist Jefferson Jarvis. They recorded at Black River Entertainment Studios and applied the finishing touch at Switch Yard Studio, both in Nashville, Tennessee. Go to www. for a calendar of upcoming appearances.

(wonder whatever happened to Washboard Leo?) and it all adds up to a jolly good time. Laissez les bon temps roulez! For booking information check out Strangely enough, even though our boys comprise a zydeco band, the album was recorded and mastered at Falcon Studios in Portland, Oregon.

BLUE HEART Too Slim and the taildraggers Underworld From the bayou to the swamp - at least it sounds swampy - to Music City. This album was recorded in Nashville, Tennessee, at Ronnie’s Place and at The Switchyard. Guitarist Timothy Langford (aka Too Slim) wrote all but two of the eleven songs and handles most of the vocals, with assistance from percussionist / backup singer Tom Hambridge. Also involved are electric guitarist Bob McNelley, bass guitarist Tommy MacDonald, (B3) organist Reese Wynans, and Jimmy Hall, who plays harmonica on the title track and sings on another. I don’t know; the more I listen to ‘em the more this band sounds like my old TexLa pal Tom Coerver and his band Goin’ South. The final piece is the least like the rest and the most interesting of all. See or www.facebook.tooslimandthetaildraggers for further information. PRINCESS OF THE RODEO W. Dire Wolf Indie This is some sweet music, sweet and simple. Mostly major chords not played as power chords and lots of waltz time adds up to simple stuff, easy to listen to while shuffling about the dance floor. Mario Cipollina (bass, backing vocals), Neal Carson (guitar), Kurt Huget (mandolin, banjo, piano), Phil Richardson (fiddle), and Ed Michaels (drums) join W. Dire Wolf (vocals, guitars, bass) for what they call “A Far Eastern Psychedelic Spaghetti Western.” Straightforward stories told here. The website is at for more data.

LOOSEN UP RB Stone Middle Mountain RB Stone evokes the Georgia Satellites, only better, for some southern rock with less attitude and more imagination. Some may ask what RB stands for, but not me. I had an uncle named OD and it stood for nothing but OD, though he preferred to be called D. RB Stone sings, plays harmonica and even a cigar-box guitar on one song (he wrote or co-wrote all ten

Is it real or is it Memorex? I shit you not; I spun this CD-R and was immediately blown away, but I have no idea who did it or how to get in touch. Dig it: if you are Boom Kinetic or know anything about Boom Kinetic, please contact us and give us some details. Woof!

UNDERCOVER Mark David Indie This is his second undercover project. The first one was mostly solo, but this time he picks up a goodly group of sidemen for a fuller sound. Still covers, as you may have guessed; nothing wrong with that, especially when they’re great songs. He is joined on this effort by: Ronnie Dickerson, Dobro; Marquis Hunt, saxophone; Fred Martin, bass and vocals; Rob Smith Electric guitar; Michael McKinnis, keys; Michael Crutchfield, drums – oh yeah, Mark David sings and plays acoustic guitar. Look up for more data.

COPPER MAN Acidic Indie Punk, or is it art rock parading in pretense of punk? Rock ‘n’ roll as we know it. Michael Gossard is the vocalist and he manages to sound a lot like Patti Smith on the title track. He also plays (good) guitar and organ and sounds more like a guy on other cuts. Ted Dubrawski is the bass player. There are other people doing other things. Other might be the operative word here. Then again, the credits include a “Senior Career Strategist” – what can I say? Go to if you wants to know s’more. BALANCED ON BARBED WIRE Lyal Strickland Indie Singer / songwriter Lyal does clear and cogent lyrics; perceptive he is. He recognizes the foibles of humanity and the desperate situations we put ourselves in and yet evinces hope for us. A pragmatic optimist I reckon; tells a good story. He has a good sense of rhythm too. Okay, he gets plenty of help in that area from some really stalwart cats, like fiddler Dave Wilson (who triples on mandolin and jaw harp), but mainly the drummer John Anderson and bass player Lou Whitney. Back to Dave for a second, I played a twanger for some folks on a railroad platform in Puerto Suarez, Bolivia one night back in ’75 and they wouldn’t let me quit until blood was flying from my mouth, so Dave, I know how hard it is to get the sound you achieved, or to quote Brother Bill “I feel your pain.” There are many more folks involved in the recording (done at Studio 2100) but time and space and tiny print limit my ability to list ‘em all. See for further details, such as booking, upcoming events, et cetera. LOOK BACK STEP FORWARD Gadi Caplan Indie Ah, jazz, at last … but wait, what’s this? I do not know. Oh, it’s an oud. And there are several keyboard players mentioned in the credits, but I think some o’ dem keys is connected to circuit boards. ‘S cool. Caplan plays guitar, both electric and acoustic, and very well I might add, some of it sounding downright classical in origin but breaking into … jazz. Hey, when you can do that you could parade a skunk past me and convince me it’s eau d’parfum. The album was recorded at DPerry music studios and Studio D in Boston, Massachusetts and I’ve been there and can certify that anything goes up there, musically. There’s even a vocalist named Oded Weinstock and I swear I didn’t hear any vocals. Except for a George Harrison cover, the music is all Gadi’s (with a lyrical assist from Kc Daugirda). No contact information was provided but y’all can likely find out more for y’sef. I guarantee it’s worth the effort.

RADIOLAB Radiolab Indie Dane Di Pierro and Meghan Redding are Radiolab. Dane does the instruments, including synthesizer, and Meghan does the lyrical elements for this electronic duo. They also splice in bits of film, but then I can’t see that, so I can’t say how effective it is visually. I can attest to the effectiveness of it aurally. It works. They play live in the D. C. area, including their home state of Maryland. You can seek contact at or go to reverbnation or Yep, they rock. HUSBAND I Am Duckeye Indie Thrash … ah yes, another precinct heard from. They have names and titles like “Matt – Riff excavator” and so forth and so on. They have this driving beat that’s going to by god force you into the car and take you for a ride, so strap it or scrap it. Zombie infiltration is no excuse. They made it this far so maybe … they’ll … go … all … the … way…. Hey, why not? Visit or write P. O. Box 2236 Ventnor Vic 3922 Australia, which might explain why some of these songs seem silly. But listen to it long enough and it starts to make sense.

FRETS & HAMMERS Les Lucky Red Kat One-man show, ‘at’s wot ‘e is, dude does it all: writes, arranges, sings, plays at least seven different instruments, and produces. He thanks all the people who came to his gigs and what I’m left wondering is how did he play all those instruments at once? Maybe he got the audience to play some of ‘em. Whatever, he whips out some catchy tunes. Yeah, he pilfers a little here and there, but what artist doesn’t? One may find more at or

And that’s about it, done for another day. Someone said I did this for the money and I figured it out. I make about a dollar an hour, which is twice what I made as a laborer in 1958. I’m coming up in the world. Then there was the good-natured soul who accused me of ego-tripping, getting off on seeing my name in print. Yeah, right … typeface so small you need a microscope to find it. But I am on an ego trip; always have been. If I’m not here to enjoy myself as best I can, what’s the point? Especially since I enjoy seeing a band or an artist I have recommended make it in the world of entertainment and when one takes the time to thank me, hell, I feel great!

PART GRAY/ PART BRIGHT LIGHT Boom Kinetic Indie Oh wow, this truly rocks. This is some of the best shit we ever got slipped under our door. Man, who are these people?

Music, man. Please send your music for review to Nightflying, PO Box 82, Perry, AR 72125 or email it to

The Basin Park Band Shell is one of the most excellent places to see a concert. Set against the mountainside (but then the entire town is too) the illustrious stage gives everyone a fine view of the band, while all the while you can keep your eye on the busy boulevard and the steady parade of people strolling by.

---Sondra Goode Just as summer is heating up, the folks at Yonder Mountain String Band’s Harvest Festival are already putting the finishing touches on their fall-time event.

Time was, in this college town during Summer Dickson Street quieted down considerably since the college folk were gone for the Summer. Them days are long gone, actually. Of course, that scenario was the case before Northwest Arkansas boomed and the small separate towns were still actually separate. Now, of course, they are all a part of one giant megalopolis. Indeed, it is difficult now to tell where one town stops and the next starts. It’s all one continuous piece of concrete now, and with things like the interstate and a real commercial airport it is a full-blown city. The entire area, that is. Add to that, since Benton County voters decided that enough of their money was flowing elsewhere and voted that county to now be wet, there are myriad businesses all over the place that serve alcoholic refreshments. Crystal Bridges museum has attracted a great many people to the area in and of itself, not to mention all the related businesses that sprung up to support the Museum. The old saying applies, I think: The only thing that doesn’t change is the fact that everything continually changes… Starting off this time out with mention of the newest nightclub in Northwest Arkansas: The Rockin’ Pig Saloon in Rogers. This outdoor club is kicking tail and taking names. Located next door to Pig Trail Harley Davidson, the club built the nicest stage in the area, fully equipped it with a concert sound system and lights, and is having shows right and left. In the coming weeks look for David Ball, Western Justice, The Lower 40, Lez Zeppelin, The Flameing Daeth Fearies, Nicnos, the incomparable Head East, Bryant, The Fabulous Hightops, Mustang Sally, Kinsey Sadler and more. There is good food and libations, on-hand security and a regular parade of great looking bikes, bikers and biker babes in the mix. Expect the Rockin’ Pig to be the center of activity this Fall during Bikes, Blues and Barbecue, too. It always has been, what with the huge Harley-Davidson operation, but now with their own concert nightclub onhand, it’s bound to be absolutely the place to be during the festival. For bookings contact Josh at (479)6369797…

And with Benton County being officially wet nowadays, expect to see more and more night-life activity in the area on a regular basis. It’s already been announce that the AMP has a new permanent home in Rogers, starting next year. Meanwhile, the AMP has quite a few shows coming.

For information call (479)443-5600……. Dropped by the new Phoenix club the other night and heard a couple decent acts. First, the Flameing Daeth Fearies were jamming inside the club and an acoustic duo, Afro Disiacs, was onstage in the garden. The place looked different, too, than it has in a while. For one thing it was considerably cleaner overall than I’d seen it in years. For another, some of the furniture and fixtures had been replaced and spruced up. Meanwhile, Travis Smith is handling the booking duties and that tells me the music program is in quite capable hands. On the bill in the coming weeks are Damn Arkansan, Sock Party, Basement Brew, Archers & Illuminators, Silverside, Meet The Funkers, the Inner Party, Friday, Maybe Saturday, National Park Radio, Arkansauce, I Do Declare, Jigsaw Mud, RedEcho, The Irie Lions, Stiff Necked Fools, DJ HOD-I, Voxana, Afro Disiacs, Flobots, plvto, Revolution Butterfly, Macrophonic MC, Cadillac Jackson, Shawn James & The Shapeshifters, Surf de Soliel, The Keyla Reed Band, John Henry & The EarthShakers, and a lot more.

Benefit CD Release Party Planned CD features 15 local bands, benefits area homeless students

A CD release party will be held at Powerhouse on Thursday, Sept. 5, at 6:30 p.m during Party on the Patio to celebrate “Sounds Made in Mountains, Vol. 2,” an album featuring original songs by some of the most talented musicians in Northwest Arkansas. Cass Harris, The Downtown Livewires, Adams Collins, Richard Burnett, Brick Fields Duo, Leah & the Mojo Doctors, and Earl & Them — all of whom are featured on the album — will take the patio stage for an evening of live and local music. The party will conclude with Isayah’s Allstars and a jam featuring several artists from the line-up. Other bands included on the CD are Goose, Oreo Blue, The Swoops, Shannon Wurst, Darren Ray, Nathan A. and Groovement. This can’t-miss event for $5 door admission is hosted by First Security Bank. The CD will be available to purchase at the party and at any First Security Bank in Northwest Arkansas for $6 beginning Sept. 1. All proceeds from the sale of the CD will directly benefit area homeless students. About Homelessness in Northwest Arkansas In early 2013, the Communities and Family Institute at the University of Arkansas administered a point-in-time census of the homeless in Northwest Arkansas. According to that report, an estimated 2,249 individuals — right here in our own communities — were found to be homeless. That’s an 18 percent increase since 2011. What’s more, the findings revealed that about half of the area’s homeless population was enrolled in kindergarten through 12th grade. They are children. And they are homeless.

ery & Distillery will be the only brewery in the world that brews its beer from naturally hot water. The Superior will also be doing music soon. Call them at (501)624-2337. Will have more on this throughout the Summer so watch for it……. The Summer in the Spa City is like nowhere else in the world. The rest of the year those who live here are almost pining for the warmer weather, and with all the lakes in the area it’s easy to see why. Truth is, since they draw down Lake Hamilton for the Winter months for dock fixin’ and weed controlin’, when the water’s up watch out. It’s time to get out on that party barge and bask in the sunshine. There are probably more boats per capita in Hot Springs than anywhere else in the world. The Big Chill remains one of my favorite clubs in The Altered State. At the Big Chill most of the clientele seem to be musicians for one thing. And the fact that patrons can come and go without the need to pay at the door makes for a truly relaxed atmosphere in general. Set to appear in the coming weeks are Dayton Waters, Christine DeMeo, Jocko Deal, Tin Pan Alley, Mike Mayberry & The Slow Hands, Chucky D., David Ball, Lightnin’ Lee Langdon, Moonshine Mafia (unplugged), Memphis band Ghost Town Blues Band, Buddy Flett, Shane Simanton (unhinged), Trey Johnson & Dave Almond, Tin Pan Alley (Mike & Mike), Grant Pierson & Gary Hutchison, the Hired Hands and more. In addition, every Sunday brings DJ Chucky D. with his own take on Karaoke. And every Monday, David Ball & Brian Bearden host the stage. And Gina has just started what she calls The New Moon Jam on Mondays, with her and Heather Crosse, Lee Williams and Rena Wren hosting the stage. She invites everyone to bring their music, instruments and bods to jam. There’s a good sound system and a built in audience for anyone who wishes to test these musical waters. The club is open 7 days a week, and there’s no cover charge. The Big Chill is a true musicians nightclub, and almost no matter who is actually booked, a whole bunch of players are likely to sit in on any given night. The Chill will also be the site of several after-parties during the Hot Springs Blues Fest, featuring 2blu & The Lucky Stiffs. For bookings and other information, call (501)624-5185..... Another very cool club is the Ohio Club on Bath House Row. This is the oldest continually operating nightclub in Arkansas and perhaps the entire country. There’s real history here, and all one needs to do to feel it is to walk in that door. In addition to the Ohio Club Players, the house band, there are numberous artists who play regularly at the club. Look for John Calvin Brewer, Mike Stanley, Rooster Meeks, The Hump Night Blues Band every Wednesday hosting the blues jam, Levon Walkin and many more.

And there’s never a cover charge here, whether you like it or not. The new house band is killer, too. Mike put together his own house band and the players all know each other musically well enough to be able to anticipate each other’s moves and licks. But in the meantime, make a point to drop by the club, have a drink and a meal, and boogie down with The Ohio Club Players. To reach the Ohio for directions and other information call (501)627-0702… As we told you last time out, Jester’s is no longer. Instead, welcome the return of Boogie’s Bar & Grill in the same spot Jester’s used to be. Live music will be at least every weekend, but there’s talk of adding other nights of the week to the program. For bookings, call Jeff or Sylvia Orrell at (501)624-5455, or email……. Gino and Cassie Francioni are making some major changes at Maxine’s. For one thing, there is no longer smoking inside the building. For another, they are going through a lot more copies of this noosepaper now than at any time since Jeremy Nelson owned the club. They have beefed up the menu, too, and now are serving many more items than before. Thing is, it has always had a kitchen in good shape, and now, with the new smoking policy, they can serve patrons of all ages. In the coming weeks look for the likes of Second Lovers, Kentucky Knife Fight, Ben Franks & The Bible Belt Boys, Insomniac Folklore, Sideshow Tragedy, Chris Johnson, Midwest Caravan, Johnathon Fleig Band, Foulplay Cabaret, Deep Fried Squirrel, Poor Ol’ Uncle Fatty, The Filthy Kind, The Fable & The Fury, The Escatones, Mainline Divide, Sound Of The Mountain, Rude Kings, Stella Luss, Vinyl Thief, Mountain Sprout and RK Ellis. (That’s only right now at presstime. These things are always subject to change, so it’s advisable to call first to make sure who you’re wanting to see is really playing…and that goes for anywhere…) For bookings call (501)321-0909……. The Superior Bath House Brewery & Distillery is up and running, but it will be Autumn before they roll out their trademark special brew. The place is open, serving food and libations, and just chock full of Hot Springs history. The bath house era happened years ago and is no longer any huge draw. An interesting note here.

Boogie’s Is Back! (501)624-5455

Summertime and music just go together. I’ve got lots of great memories from my misspent youth that involve summer and music…sitting outside on a patio under an umbrella, sipping a favorite beverage and listening to someone play and sing…cruising along the lake or river with the stereo blasting…sitting on a creek bank with an old, beat up cooler on the tailgate of a truck, picking guitars…grinding out the late hours of a sultry summer festival…cruising a back road listening to the radio with the windows rolled down, warm summer breezes passing me by. Ahhh, summertime. How I’ve missed you so. Starry summer nights and live music just go hand in hand. It was on one such evening recently that I took a little trip to Camden to Postmaster’s Grill. Joe Pitts and company were there to record a live CD with special guests, The Beckham Brothers. Postmaster’s Grill is right on the main drag in Camden, using an old post office for a restaurant and bar, complete with some of the old combination lock mailboxes as you walk in the door. I didn’t get to check out the menu this night but I do intend to go back and give it a shot. More on that as the story develops. Postmaster’s Grill’s building connects to a large, outdoor patio area that includes a full bar and a very well done stage. The patio is locked between brick buildings on all sounds, giving the acoustics a bit of a delayed effect when the sound bounces around the buildings in downtown Camden. It’s a very cool spot that I can recommend with no issues. As usual Joe Pitts and band lit up the night with Pitts’ original tunes and a few covers. The band consists of Pitts on guitar and vocals, Al Hagood on bass, Don Collins on organ and Chris Moore on drums. This new version of JPB gets tighter each time they play and that should come across on the live disc. I’ve known Joe for a number of years now and he is still having the time of his life playing music. His slide guitar playing, in my opinion, is some of the best out there these days. The Beckham Brothers really took me by surprise. The band consists of their dad, Jody, on guitar, Lance Womack on drums, Mitchell Beckham on bass and vocals and Mason Beckham on guitar and vocals. The brothers are 15 and 11, respectively as of this writing, and they are wise beyond their years when it comes to blues music. Mason is on his way to becoming a solid guitar player, Mitchell more than does the job on the bass and both boys can sing. Not only that but they were paying homage to some of the elder statesmen of the blues throwing down some old Howlin’ Wolf among other. Keep your eyes and ears on these young men. They are not just the future of blues music, they are the future of Arkansas music. Speaking of youth and the future of music, the Spa City Blues Society in conjunction with Classics Bar & Grill inside the Clarion Hotel in Hot Springs, will begin the Youngblood Blues Jam the second Thursday in June (June 13). The jam is being hosted by the SCBS and will focus on musicians under the age of 21. Drums and a bass rig will be available for young jammers to play on. All young musicians are encouraged to come out and play. The venue is smoke free and there is no admission charge. Pass the word! On the subject of the Spa City Blues Society, they’ve also started Second Sunday Blues, an event that happens every second Sunday of the month at The Big Chill. The format for this event is, well…there is no format. The SCBS will be programming bands, solos, duos, films, workshops and so forth with something different happening each month. In addition to what is happen-

ing on the stage, there will be a food and drink special each month. So far, the SCBS has hosted the John Calvin Brewer Band and Tin Pan Alley (Mike Parker and Mike Stanley) with a special appearance by the lovely and talented Christine DeMeo. The best thing about Second Sunday Blues? It’s FREE!

Jana Pochop and Susan Gibson The SCBS offers up a weekly Hump Night Blues Jam on Wednesdays at The Ohio Club. Jammers are always welcome and the sets have been heating up with the weather. There are a couple of other jams around the area you might want to mark on your calendar. Each Tuesday, the Arkansas River Blues Society hosts a jam at Thirst and Howl’s in Little Rock. On Thursdays, the Spa City Rock and Roll Society host a jam at the Crosswalk Bar & Grill. If you really want to see some great musicians and hear some great music, check out one of these jams. You never know who might show up! If you’ve got a jam going on in your neck of the woods be sure to let me know and I’ll tell folks about it here. Music, a full moon, great food and good friends.

Ray Manzarek Add all that up and you have the makings of a wonderful evening. And indeed, a great evening was had by all in attendance at a recent house concert at the home of Gina Parks, owner of the Big Chill. Parks hosted singer songwriters Jana Pochop and Susan Gibson from Austin for an evening of food and fun. Gibson is the writer of the Dixie Chicks monster hit “Wide Open Spaces.” The

pair each shared their music and the stories behind the songs on a night that was lit up by the full moon. I was in Memphis not long ago for the Blues Music Awards. I’ve been lucky enough to get to handle some of the artists who perform each year for a few years now. It’s always a blast to meet the musicians and other folks in the industry. I get to catch up with old friends and meet a lot of new ones. Some of the highlights from this year’s BMA’s included seeing the late Michael Burks pick up two awards, Album of the Year and Contemporary Album of the Year. His wife, Bobbi, and his band accepted the awards on his behalf. Curtis Salgado was the big winner for the night, garnering three awards for Soul Blues Album of the Year, Soul Blues male Artist and the coveted BB King Entertainer of the Year. This was quite a feat since Salgado had just finished his second fight with cancer recently. And a big shout here to one of my favorite piano players in the world, Victor Wainwright. Wainwright picked up the BMA as the Pinetop Perkins Piano Player of the year. A well deserved nod to a fine player and all around good guy. Keep on rollin’ them 88’s bud! The performances, as always, were over the top. Wainwright’s performance during the awards took your breath away. Other great performances included Houston’s Jewel Brown and Milton Hopkins, a pair of fine musicians who are just now getting their due; the amazing Dorothy Moore singing ‘Misty Blue’; Chicago’s living history pair of Billy Boy Arnold and John Primer doing an acoustic set; and the finale by Royal Southern Brotherhood as they performed ‘Left My Heart in Memphis’. I got a chance to visit with Cedric Burnside and Paula Harris earlier in the evening as they prepared to perform on the party stage to open the awards. Burnside had a very good up and coming guitarist with him, Trenton Ayres. Keep your ears open for this guy. Harris finished third in the 2012 International Blues Challenge and was up for Debut Artist of the Year. Down on Beale Street it was like a family reunion. I spent the majority of the first evening in Memphis standing outside the Rum Boogie Café catching up with all the inlaws and outlaws…Zac Harmon; Kevin Hopkins and the guys from Intrepid Artists; Eric Hughes and his beautiful bride, Donna; Brandon Santini; Nick and Kate Moss; Gina Sicilia and Dave Gross and so many others. Music in general and blues in particular make for a pretty awesome extended family! With any family there are always those sad times when we have to say goodbye. Doors keyboard player and co-founder Ray Mazarek passed recently from an extended fight with cancer. In my opinion, Manzarek set the bar for generations of rockers. His carnivalesque sounds and moody riffs are still influencing players today. I had the good fortune to interview Manzarek and collaborative partner Roy Rogers a little over a year ago for Nightflying. We discussed their album Translucent Blues, playing with Jim Morrison, and the state of music today. Manzarek was congenial and humorous, very willing to answer the tough questions and the silly ones. His insight into the music business and his view of the Los Angeles music scene was very keen. We recorded the interview for a possible play on the radio later. I had mentioned early on that we’d be recording so it was ok if someone let a banned word slip. Manzarek said “Well then. Let me be the first to say…fuck.” And with that, the interview was on. RIP Ray. Tell Jim I said hey... So, that’s another set of my scratching for another issue. If you have a story to tell, tell it. If you have a song to sing, sing it. And if you have love to give, give it. You’ll be glad you did. See ya backstage.... ----DH



Getting wet in Harrison:

July 3 gathering a virtual harp orgy ---Joe Harless Well it’s time for telling what’s going on in and around Boone County. As I was preparing to write this month’s column, I looked through last months Nightflying and something struck my fancy that made me, and maybe you too, appreciate what a unique publication Nightflying is aside from all the music stuff. The ads and their diversity, I mean on one page is an ad for the Ruby Review Burlesque Show, across from it is an ad for the Life Church and a couple of pages further an ad for a strip club. Wow, only in America my friends. It reminds of a line from a Tom Waits song that said, “How do the angels get to sleep when the devil leaves the porch light on?” So we all pick our poison and choose how much to take. Now on to the music stuff… We’re still wrestling a bear to get it all going, but the bear is getting tired I believe. Because on July 3rd we had a honest to God awesome music event at the Lakeside Resort in Diamond City, Arkansas. The owners of the resort, Adrian and Katie asked if I could put on something to coincide with the big fireworks show held right next to the resort at the campground and marina. So we put together a plan, (plans are good things). I put the word out, come play with Shakey Joe at the July 4th Fireworks Show at the Lakeside Resort. The core band was Kelly Scott on drums, Jimi Chase on bass and vocals, and myself on harmonica. Fate and fortune began rolling in. Ty Carnelison came in on rhythm guitar and vocals and Homer Keyes from the Ground Rattlers provided lead guitar and vocals. We had us a band! Then I received a call from Big Tank Taylor, he fronted the Poor Richard Band in Phoenix, which in the 90’s was one of Arizona’s hottest blues/rock bands. He said, “Can I come play?” So we got us a bluesman deluxe from the west coast. Then a harp player from Mayflower, Mr. Richard Reynolds, called and said he had been using one of my Shaker microphones for many years and could we use another harp player. I said “Sure can, bring your stuff, we’re gonna cut heads.” The band was growing. I called a friend, Mr. James Reardon from Mississippi who does the one man band thing; guitar, harp and vocal. I asked, “Would you like to open this thing up for us?” He said, “Oh my my yes.” So we had us a potpourri band from all over the land. It get’s better my friends. Somebody called somebody, and I get a call from one of our Shaker endorsers, Mr. Tony Holiday, a musician from Salt Lake City. He was finishing a 20 city tour and they had just played New Orleans, Jonesboro and Memphis, and you guessed it, he wanted to come play too! How could I refuse?

So he and his band came rolling in with their tour bus and at this point I was sure happy that Adrian and Katie had gone and got the big community stage and set it up because we were gonna need it. Tony is a young road warrior who plays a mean Les Paul and a killer harp. Even though we have endorsed Tony for two years as a Shaker Microphone player, I had never actually met him, so this was double cool. We just turned over the stage to him and his band for the last hour, and they whipped it on everybody. These guys played their butts off, some of the best blues and rock I’ve heard in years. OMG! If they ever come to your town, do yourself a favor and go see them. They gave me one of their new CD’s that they’re selling on tour, I was totally amazed. The first cut totally blew my mind. The whole CD is chocolate dipped Twinkie good! Tell them Shakey Joe sent you! Let’s get back to the show. It was an absolutely magic night. About 700 people at the park campgrounds and marina. The Lakeside Resort is on the edge overlooking it all. The sun started to set and the temperature dropped, the music started to roll echoing across the water. When it came time for fireworks, Ty did a Hendrix-like rendition of the “Star Spangled Banner” solo - and loud - it was very emotional and very fitting. Then the night sky lit up with fireworks everywhere and there we are…the sky, the lake, the music. Life was good and wonderful in Diamond City, Arkansas. And that is why I know the bear is getting tired. People danced and sang, whooped and hollered, until midnight. We may not wear helmets but we are a “band of brothers” who carry guitars and harmonicas instead of guns. Next year we’re doing it again, so make sure you mark your calendars, grab your fishing poles and dancing shoes, and come up to Diamond City on July 3rd. You Can Leave Your Hat On. We just heard from the band Dirt Road Dogs that they have finished their new all original CD called, what else but, Fresh Tracks. They will be playing in Fayetteville on August 1st at a club called On the Mark. These guys are some of Boone County’s finest, so go see them and get your funk on. The Brick Oven Pizza Company in Harrison is bringing in R X Ellis on July 23rd and The Three Story Trio on July 26th. On August 6th and 23rd it’s Hannah Whorton. On August 27th they’re having the band Southern Confession. On August 31st the Lyric Theatre in downtown Harrison is presenting one of my favorite ground pounding blues/rock bands, Thunder Crow. So, if you need a fix of the good stuff, they’ll put it on ya. You all take care of yourself and others. ---Shakey Joe

1933 Vivi Tone Guitar ---Steve Evans The guitar featured in today’s article is one of the earliest electric guitars ever made. It’s an electric tenor guitar produced in 1933 by the Vivi Tone Company of Kalamazoo, Michigan. Lloyd Loar was the mastermind behind Vivi Tone, and his company not only produced this tenor fourstring guitar, but several other electrified instruments including electric six-string guitars, mandocellos, mandolas, mandolins and violins. In the early 1920’s, prior to the start-up of the Vivi Tone Company, Lloyd Loar was an acoustical engineer and designer at the Gibson Mandolin & Guitar Company. Loar came up with several great innovations for Gibson and was highly regarded for designing Gibson’s F-5 mandolin and the L-5 archtop guitar. An interesting footnote to Loar’s innovations is that before Loar’s use of “f” holes on the F-5 & L-5, all previous mandolins and guitars had been made with circular sound holes only! One of Loar’s inventions for Gibson in 1924 was an unusual backbone-shaped prototype of an electric upright bass. Loar encouraged Gibson to start making electrified instruments, but the bosses at Gibson had no interest. This led to Loar leaving Gibson and starting the Vivi Tone Company. The Vivi Tone guitar shown in the above photo has a serial number of #31 and was made in 1933, the first year of production for the Vivi Tone Company. It has a shaded sunburst finish with painted-on “f” holes. This is a four string “tenor” guitar and was meant to be tuned the same as a tenor banjo (C, G, D, A). This “boat-paddle” shaped electric guitar was made with a solid body instead of being hollow like a normal guitar. Having the “solid body” provided excellent sustain for electrified musical notes while eliminating the possibility of squealing feedback. Instead of the electric pickup amplifying each string’s movement in a magnetic field, Loar placed his pickup directly underneath the string bridge and the vibration of the whole bridge was amplified. The hookup for an amplifier is made on the underside of the guitar via two small female pin connectors, which were state-of-the-art in 1933, and were the same connectors used for the candlestick telephones of the time. Many people today assume that the first solid body electric guitars were the Fender Telecaster and Gibson Les Paul, but the Vivi Tone electric predates both by almost twenty years. Besides the boat-paddle shaped tenor guitar, Vivi Tone also produced a solid body six-string guitar that was guitar-shaped, and several non-solid (acoustic) guitars which were available with or without electronics. From 1933 through April 1936, Vivi Tone produced a total of 485 instruments, but Vivi Tone was not proving to be a profitable company. Lloyd Loar accepted defeat and called it quits. An investor moved the Vivi Tone Company from Kalamazoo to Detroit, Michigan, where the company quietly faded away. Lloyd Loar’s vision of electric guitar music had simply come too soon. Recent history of this particular 1933 Vivi Tone: It was on display for 25 years at Boyd’s Music in Little Rock. When Boyd’s closed in 2000, Bob Boyd offered it to me for my collection and I jumped at the chance to own such a legitimate museum piece. In 2002 I carried this guitar to the PBS Antique Road Show, and the appraiser quoted its value at $1,000, the exact amount I paid for it at Boyd’s Music. You can see this Vivi Tone (not for sale) on display at the Jacksonville Guitar Museum in Jacksonville. To see a short video demonstration, go to and use search words “Nightflying 1933 Vivi Tone.”

As with most Frets about Frets articles that I write, I draw from experience… What I see come through my shop mostly… This time is no different! Last summer, a customer came in and purchased an inexpensive Fender Squire Acoustic from me and I made the standard claim that if something goes wrong either structurally or electronically, I will fully stand by the instrument. This guitar was a good “player’s” instrument. It had a good balance of low action and decent volume. The neck was straight and true and the body had very little “belly” around the bridge. When the customer left that shop, he was happy. About two weeks later, during a spell of 100-plus degree temperatures, he came into the shop complaining about “Buzzing” strings… and in keeping with my customer service beliefs, I said bring it in and let’s take a look. The words from his mouth were nearly unbelievable… “I’ll go out to the car and get it out of the trunk”… It took me a moment to recognize just what had been said…“out of the trunk”… What? It was 114 degrees outside… Aarrg! When he came back in and put the gig bag on the counter, I could not grasp the metal zipper pull because it was so hot. As we waited for the instrument to cool, I began educating this fellow on the realities of climate…as it related to a guitars health. As most of you know all wooden, stringed instruments are sensitive to changes in temperature and humidity… but…just to re-cap: ALL acoustic instrument that are made of wood products are susceptible to changes in weather…yes…even laminate-built instruments can be influenced by extremely high or

low temperatures and/or humidity. The ideal humidity range for an instrument is around 45 percent relative humidity, but if an instrument is built correctly it should be able to go down to 35 percent without a problem. However, below 35 percent humidity, fingerboard woods can become stressed to the point of causing fret ends to poke out, tops to crack and/or sink inward, and necks to become “Humpy.” If you play a solid wood instrument and you live in an environment that’s very dry, you absolutely need to use a humidifier. A laminated wood guitar is less susceptible but still needs not to be exposed to extremes. Temperature, which was at issue with this customer, can be summed up by saying: Treat your instrument like you would your child… Wooden, musical instruments “like” the same environmental conditions that we players do. When you travel, put your instruments in the A/ C with you…but…if you would leave you kid in the trunk of the car, expect the same outcome… Both will probably come apart at the seams and NOT make beautiful music again. As for my customer, he got off easy…although I had not seen a nut deformed from the strings MELTING into the nut!

“I’ll go out to the car and get it out of the trunk”

---Bob Boyd I’m going to talk about dogs this month. What is the only creature God created that pays attention to who we are and what we are doing? I believe that God created the dog so we would have a true companion in the animal world. Even in these days of higher and higher technology, there are still jobs that only a dog can do, such as police work. When the cops have a subject cornered and he refuses to cooperate, usually all the officer has to do is tell the subject “Come on out now, or we’re going to send in the dog!” That usually brings about an immediate surrender of the subject. If it doesn’t, and the dog is sent in, the game’s over right away. I have an e-mail video of a police dog leaping over an automobile and taking down a gunman instantly. Service dogs lead their sightless masters anywhere they need to go. They are comforting companions in nursing homes and hospitals. They decided to test one of their police dogs’ phenomenal sense of smell. A man sat on the bleachers in a huge stadium full of fans. That night there was a huge thunderstorm and the open hour bleachers were drenched for several hours. Next day they gave the police dog a piece of clothing from the man, and let him into the bleachers area. Well, you guessed it. The dog went IMMEDIATELY to the place where the man sat on the bleachers the day before! Dogs can sense (by smell or some other unknown sense) when an epileptic is about to have a seizure. In another test; a girl left her friend’s house several miles from her home. At the very instant she walked out of her friend’s home and got into her car, her dog got out of his bed and went to the door and sat waiting for her to arrive. I believe that God gave us the domestic dog because He knew we would need help surviving. All dogs, regardless of their breed or appearance, are direct descendants of the wolf. A German laboratory bred wolves and selected only their most friendly and cooperative pups to breed the next generation. After only 10 generations they had friendly, loyal domestic dogs! Early man, in the days when we were hunters and gatherers, may have raised a foundling wolf cub, who in turn became their night sentry against predatory animals, so they could all sleep safely. Dogs also have remarkable hearing. If you walk your dog along a residential street, I am told the dog can hear every conversation and sound going on in each house on either side of the street. No other animal even comes close to being as loyal a friend as a dog. They ask so little of us and give us so very much in return. To dogs, we are their “gods.” If we could only be as loyal and devoted to God, our Creator, as our dog is to us, wouldn’t the world be a far better place to live?

Q: Who won the drummer beauty contest? A: Nobody… A Yankee walks into a bar in Alabama and orders a cosmopolitan. The bartender looks at the man and says, “You‘re not from ‘round here are ya?“ “No“ replies the man, “I‘m from New Hampshire.“ The bartender looks at him and says, “Well what do you do in New Hampshire?“ “I‘m a taxidermist,“ says the man. The bartender looks bewildered, so the man explains, “I mount dead animals.“ The bartender stands back and hollers to the whole bar, “It‘s OK, boys! He‘s one of us!“ A man sat at a local bar and said, “This is a special day, I’m celebrating.” “What a coincidence,” said the woman next to him. “I’m celebrating, too she replied, clinking glasses with him. “What are your celebrating? “I’m a chicken farmer, and for years all my hens were infertile, but today they’re finally fertile.” “What a coincidence,” the woman said. “My husband and I have been trying to have a child. Today, my gynecologist told me I’m pregnant!” “How did your chickens become fertile?” she asked. “I switched cocks,” he replied. “What a coincidence,” she said. A man is stumbling through the woods totally drunk when he comes upon a preacher baptizing people in the river. He proceeds to walk into the water and subsequently bumps into the preacher. The preacher turns around and is almost overcome by the smell of alcohol, whereupon he asks the drunk, “Are you ready to find Jesus?” The drunk answers, “Yes, I am.” So the preacher grabs him and dunks him in the water. He pulls him up and asks the drunk, “Brother, have you found Jesus?” The drunk replies, “No, I haven’t found Jesus.” The preacher, shocked at the answer; dunks him into the water again for a little longer this time. He again pulls him out of the water and asks again, “Have you found Jesus, my brother?” The drunk again answers, “No, I haven’t found Jesus.” By this time the preacher is at his wits end and dunks the drunk in the water again. This time holds him down for about 30 seconds and when he begins kicking his arms and legs he pulls him up. The preacher again asks the drunk, “For the love of God, have you found Jesus?” The drunk wipes his eyes, catches his breath and yells to the preacher, “Are you sure this is where he fell in?” The big game hunter walked in the bar and bragged to everyone about his hunting skills. The man was undoubtedly a good shot and no one could dispute that. But then he said that they could blindfold him and he would recognize any animal’s skin from its feel, and if he could locate the bullet hole he would even tell them what caliber the bullet was that killed the animal. The hunter said that he was willing to prove it if they would put up the drinks, and so the bet was on. They blindfolded him carefully and took him to his first animal skin. After feeling it for a few moments, he announced “Bear.” Then he felt the bullet hole and declared, “Shot with a .308 rifle.” He was right. They brought him another skin, one that someone had in their car trunk. He took a bit longer this time and then said, “Elk, Shot with a 7mm Mag rifle.” He was right again. Through the night, he proved his skills again and again, every time against a round of drinks. Finally he staggered home, drunk out of his mind, and went to sleep. The next morning he got up and saw in the mirror that he had one hell of a shiner. He said to his wife, “I know I was drunk last night, but not drunk enough to get in a fight and not remember it. Where did I get this black eye?” His wife angrily replied, “I gave it to you. You got into bed and put your hand down my panties. Then you fiddled around a bit and loudly announced, “Skunk, killed with an axe…” An Irishman, an Italian, and a Polish guy are in a bar. They are having a good time and all agree that the bar is a nice place. Then the Irishman says, “Aye, this is a nice bar, but where I come from, back in Dublin, there’s a better one. At MacDougal’s, you buy a drink, you buy another drink, and MacDougal himself will buy your third drink!” The others agree that sounds like a nice place. Then the Italian says, “Yeah, that’s a nice bar, but where I come from, there’s a better one. Over in Brooklyn, there’s this place, Vinny’s. At Vinny’s, you buy a drink, Vinny buys you a drink. You buy anudda drink, Vinny buys you anudda drink. Everyone agrees that sounds like a great bar. Then the Polish guy says, “You think that’s great? Where I come from, there’s this place called WarshowskI’s. At WarshowskI’s, they buy you your first drink, they buy you your second drink, they buy you your third drink, and then, they take you in the back and get you laid! “Wow!” say the other two. “That’s fantastic! Did that actually happen to you? “No,” replies the Polish guy, “but it happened to my sister!” Q: Have you heard about the new radio station called WPMS? A: They play three weeks of blues and one week of ragtime…

Top Ten Reasons Why Trick-or-Treating is Better than Sex

10. Guaranteed to get at least a little something in the sack... 9. If you get tired, wait 10 minutes and go at it again... 8. The uglier you look, the easier it is to get some… 7. You don’t have to compliment the person who gave you candy… 6. Its OK when the person you’re with fantasizes you’re someone else, (because you ARE someone else…) 5. 40 years from now, you’ll still enjoy candy... 4. If you don’t get what you want, you can always go next door... 3. Doesn’t matter if kids hear you moaning and groaning... 2. Less guilt the next morning… 1. You can do the whole neighborhood…

The advice column for people too sick to seek professional help

Dear Ed: Hello, my name is Irina. I have a great desire to find a mate and soul mate. I am 29 years old. I hope that age difference is not a problem for our communication. I am gentle and affectionate girl. I want to find a permanent mate. For this, I have all the features. I like to create comfort me nice when the house is beautiful and clean. I think that serious relationship is a responsibility. But just as they are full of romance and feelings. Our dreams are the same? Here is my email , so I can send you my pictures. I hope. we bridge the friendship. Signed, Gentle Irina Dear Gentle Irina: Do you mind if I call you Irina? Thanks you for the letter, and the fact that you’re 29 years old. Being only 13, I seldom have the pleasure of communication with someone your age. I, too, see that serious relationship is a responsibility. I also see from your letter that you are a well-adjusted, beautiful and clean lady, and I respect you for that. But being stuck here in puberty, I’m wondering if our dreams can truly be the same. I dream of someday kissing a woman - right on the lips - it would be a perfect way to bridge the friendship. Do you dream of that, too? But I think I’m still too young to find a “permanent mate”, even one with all the features. And especially someone such as yourself who can make my house beautiful and clean. It’s never been that way before, but I can tell you from experience that it wants to be. It says so and that’s all I need to know. Just the same, thank you for wirting me. It makes my day to know that an older lady such as you would want to bridge with me. Sincerely, Bridgeable Ed when I’m older My Dearest Ed: Greetings to you my dear Brothers and Sisters the good people of this planet earth i am writing you this e-mail not to disturb you but to ask for your assistant based on my personality and my present condition in life and in particular what i intend doing for CHARITY. I am Mrs. Christy Walton, the 2nd Richest Woman in the world am a great citizen of United State of America, am bring to you a proposal which i want you to assist me with, i worth $ 22.5 billion Dollars which rated me as the 2nd Richest Woman in the World. As the going says Money is not everything on earth, is painful now to let the world now know my present

condition as a cry for help I have been suffering from a Heart disease for the passed 22 years, now just few weeks ago my Doctors in America just told me now that is time for me to die, and my Will been with my Lawyer which my Family is aware about. but no body is aware about the 40% of my Bank Worth which is $9,000,000,000 (Nine Billion United State Dollars). I intend to give to CHARITY because have not seen anybody from my Family, Relations and Friends which i trust can help me out, because i always have this DREAM to help CHARITY and i have always promise myself that i must do this very big at my end time to CHARITY, can i please trust you to help me give to CHARITY this heave amount of Money because i have just 2 Months left to die, as I write to you now am full of tears as I await my death. Please reply me back with your below details to enable us proceed further and please keep this confidential. 1. Full Name - Dear Ed 2. Telephone Numbers - yes 3. Your Sex - often 4. Your Occupation: writing this column 5. Your Country: mine, too 6. Marital Status: horny and without God Bless You. Signed, Mrs. Christy Walton. Dear Mrs. Christy Walton: Your name is vaguely familiar to me, though I don’t know why. Also, I don’t know my own name sometimes, but am working on it as we speak. I’ve heard of me, granted, but I’m thinking we’ve never had a proper introduction…that is, our Mom’s haven’t managed to handle the social arrangements. It is good that you contacted me, though, as I have great master plans with how to spend your billions of dollars: After I pay my complete phone bill (in one sitting I might add), I’m thinking I might even spring for a completely new set of tires (all at once!). I’m sorry you are full of tears and await your death. But send that CHARITY to me and I promise you it will not go to waste…er…some of it might, but the rest will be spent on GOOD CAUSES, I assure you. It is ironic, I think, that we are now both still waiting for your death. And may I just say thank you for all you’ve done for the local Mom and Pop stores in our area.

Best of Burger (1949 - 1998)

to the know-it-all-never-in-the-wrong Sagittarius, the one thing that never changes is they’re real, real goofy…

St. Gypsy Woman

ARIES (March 21-April 19) Is that the Bluebird of Happiness I see there on your shoulder? What omen is this? Will you find health? Inner peace? Love? Will you go on a trip? Yeah - a trip to the dry cleaners... Too bad.......

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) I see Change in the immediate future...big change...lots of change...a change involving your’s becoming clearer now... I see you finding money... I see... Oh. It’s just you diggin’ around in your sister’s sofa for quarters to play the pinball...never mind... (I gotta get my crystal ball prescription updated...)

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Wait!!! This is most curious... I see a Gemini in trouble - big trouble... What’s goin’ on here? Geminis are the Rolls Royces of the astrological luxury line...I see a Gemini with no money, bad looks, bad teeth, bad hair, bad manners, a bad attitude and a bad future...something’s badly out of whack here... The Gypsy Woman suspects that there’s something afoot here not quite fact, I smell a rat...something in wrong in Denmark...I smell trouble...I smell... ...a damn Cancer dressed up like a Gemini and it’s just not working, man... Go back to your slimy Cancer ways and remember can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear...OR a Gemini out of a Cancer.......

CANCER (June 21-July 22) Wait a minute...this is real weird...I’m gettin’ a strange feelin’ again... the feeling that someone’s tryin’ to run a game on the old Gypsy Woman... I see a Cancer...right before my eyes...but this Cancer is fair to behold, diligent, honest, forthcoming, intelligent and a pretty darn good chess player... What’s goin’ on? Oh. I get it. It’s a Gemini dressed up like a Cancer...good for a few chuckles I guess...but an extremely thin disguise.......

A dog by any other name would still sniff his own droppings... ---Hilliard Bean



LEO (July 23-August 22) I’m getting some real unusual vibes here on Leo’s for this month... I sense an energy, a vitality, an optimism that I’ve never associated with Leo before... All things are possible in the realm of the Zodiac, but this vibe is really unusual... This vibe is exciting...electrifying...this vibe is... Hold it! This vibe is somebody’s vibrator that got left under the sofa cushion... This is just a fleeting battery-operated vibe here, and the Leo will remain his and her lazy, unproductive usual slobby soon as those Ever-Ready’s discharge.......

VIRGO (August 23-September 22) The Gypsy Woman sees all...knows all... The Gypsy Woman is getting a very-very strong feeling now...a feeling that all Virgo’s in the central southern states are about to receive a powerful, compelling revelation...a psychic message so intense and so direct that its command will not be denied... I see Virgo’s everywhere sending large sums of money to the Gypsy Woman in care of Nightflying...’s coming in quite clear... Yes...large sums of money will be sent in a massive, glorious outpouring of generosity...given freely and abundantly without thought of self and expecting nothing in return except the certain and soul-satisfying knowledge that the Gypsy Woman really likes it when she’s got big bucks... Let Her Joy be a beacon to you all.......

LIBRA (September 23-October 22) I’m having a little trouble here...must concentrate harder...the future seems hazy...the Libra’s fate is unclear...the Gypsy Woman’s crystal ball seems veiled somehow...a darkness has fallen...a thick, gooey, brownish caul obscures the visions for the future... It is almost as though the mystic crystal has been smeared with the dirty-brown evil potions that the ebony forces of the occult world often conjure in some unspeakably sooty Libran cauldron far from the celestial havens where goodness and light rule. If I’m to reveal the future I must somehow cleanse the mystic vessel that speaks the unknown verses...I must purify the... Huh? What the hell is this? Holy-Moly, somebody spilt... Damn it, if I’ve told that creepy nephew of mine once I’ve told him a hundred times, no chocolate ice cream in the dad-gum vision room... Man I hate that creepy nerd sister’s step-kid...this stuff’ll never come off...that little Libra-snot better beware the mighty wrath of the Gypsy Woman...that little brat’s got Pain in his future for sure...

SCORPIO (October 23-November 21) The Scorpio is said to have many enduring and desirable traits. However, they are obviously deeply hidden beneath an impenetrable shield of insecurities, neurosis, incurable personality disorders and an almost unfathomable tolerance for personal insult, out-right criticism and near-fatal maulings by trained guard and seeing-eye dogs. If there’s one thing that can be said about the Scorpio without fear of contradiction - technically speaking of course - it’s that most of ‘em suck…

SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21) Sagittarius is unique on the wheel for one reason and one reason only... The Sagittarian is the only sign holder who, when offered a “onemillion dollar per year tax free income” in exchange for a sincere apology to anyone for any reason, would remain a pauper...because when it comes

CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19) Capri-Corn...from the Latin Capri (a small tropical island with moderately priced tourist hotels and beautiful white sandy beaches with a considerably lower incidence of shark attack than the Great Barrier Reef); and Corn (a crusty, irritating growth that old people always get on the side of their little toes because they buy shoes that don’t fit good and rub ‘em there)....... The really compelling thing about the origination of the word “Capricorn” is that before the word was used to describe the people born between December 22 and January 19, “Capricorn” was used as the word which described those people who chose to wear filthy rags, refused to bath, rubbed themselves from head to toe with the scent glands of male Appalachian junior high school janitors and who slept each night atop rudely constructed mounds of yak manure interlaced with cast-off diseased body parts gleaned from the festering and fly-blown tumor disposal trench near the pole-cat rendering plant. But time went by and more and more people joined the ranks of the yak-manure-pile-dwelling-janitor-gland-permeated-filthily-attired-polecat-gleaning-tribe called, you guessed it, “Capricorn”... This ever-growing group of odoriferous misfits decided that they would henceforth refer to themselves as the “bad-stinky-nasty-funkypeople-of-the-fly-blown-tumor-disposal-trench,” which, of course, left the word “Capricorn” up for grabs and somebody got it, appropriately enough, for this sign of the Zodiac…

AQUARIUS (January 20-February 18) Those of the sign Aquarius might be interested to know that their sign is named for a Roman general known as Aquarius. Born to poor Polish immigrant garbonzo bean shuckers, Aquarius was, of course, known to friends and family simply as “Frank.” (Legend has it that his family was so destitute in the days of his youth that they couldn’t afford to maintain a last name, but authorities dispute this, explaining that even Polish garbonzo shuckers coudn’t be that broke...) Though Frank’s family was not prosperous, or even very smart, his early years were happy and uneventful until about his 14th birthday when his village was virtually wiped out, pillaged, burnt to the ground and then bankrupted by a well-armed and nattily-attired legion of superbly trained and savagely brutal Roman-financed sadists who happily raged about the pathetic little town of squalid hovels methodically butchering the unarmed and deeply inbred men, women and children of Frank’s hometown. When they were done, two very profound and life-altering thoughts came in the dazed youth’s reality: The first was that even though these men had butchered everything that he had ever held dear, he must join the Roman Legions and become as they...hideously sadistic but well-dressed and gainfully employed. He also reasoned that he and his folks were never really that close... The second was that he’d wet his pants. And so Frank did as he must. He rose through the ranks of the Roman army, and after many campaigns was appointed General of the Legions of Rome by (either Nero of Cid) Ceaser. And because of the fact that every time he went into battle he wet his pants, he was called General Frank Aquarius... And when at last he died of natural causes at his villa in one of the better neighborhoods of Sicily where he had retired honorably with his beloved wife Trudi, the hideously ugly midget Jamaican hooker, every single man in the entire Roman military War-Machine, including Reserves, National Guard, R.O.T.C. and the Salvation Army honored the great General Frank Aquarius by wetting his pants...a final and fitting tribute to a really great guy with a kind word to all and a weak bladder. It’s history. Look it up. And remember, you read it here first…

PISCES (February 19-March 20) The Gypsy Woman is too tired from makin’ up so much stuff about Aquarius so the Pisces gets this: Mind your Momma, brush 3 times a day, and next time you’re eatin’ Gummi Worms watch out for fish hooks...
