“All the good music has already been written by people with wigs and stuff.” --Frank Zappa Greetings to all! It is our official Out House Reading edition as some of you may have noticed from the names on these pages...or the cover, too. It’s also Fall in the Altered State…by far the season of the finest weather in these parts, too. My grandparents, who were fond of going to Hawaii, came to visit after we moved from Seattle to Arkansas, they originally came for a week and ended up staying for 6 weeks, saying, often, “this is nicer than Hawaii…” And there is much music here during Autumn. To wit, it is when Helena comes alive with the world-famous King Biscuit Blues Festival… It was 31 years ago that Bubba Wine Sullivan called and we became acquainted, and he asked us to assist in getting the thing going. It wasn’t something we knew a lot about, either, rather, it was because Nightflying was the only all-music publication in the entire region (which it still is, mind you…) This has also been why we have had the privelege of helping start many festivals, from blues fests to jazz fests to rock fests and bluegrass festivals… The first year our headliner was Bobby Blue Bland, and an enormous crowd of music lovers showed up. I think there were around 1,000 people that attended. The word spread and by the second festival a year later, that crowd grew to around 10 times that many…and several years into it there were over 100,000 blues lovers that connected on Cherry Street in Helena, Arkansas for King Biscuit. This year on the bill were such notables as John Mayall, Sonny Landreth, Reba Russell, Heavy Suga’ & The SweeTones, The Rebirth Brass Band, Anson Funderburgh, Kenny Neal, Charlie Musselwhite, Bob Margolin & Bob Stroger, and a whole lot more……. On October 8th was the resumption of Barth Grayson’s Indian Summer Jam at his amphitheater outside Bald Knob. The year on the bill were Mountain Sprout, Revolution, The Highway 67

Band, Ransom, Federali Moo, Cabover Pete, The Storm, A Year & A Day, The Jason Kinney Band, Ken Smith, Russell, John & Mr. Pledger, Justin Brather and music man Gabe, one of the best players in Arkansas music history…….. Coming right up is another Barth show on October 29th: The North Central Arkansas Family Picnic. This will be a fundraiser for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, and everyone is asked to bring a side dish. Add to the vittles delight will be Barth’s Tasmanian Bear Stew and a whole roasted hog. (Barth is very much into hunting!) Headlining will be Black Oak Arkansas. Also on the bill will be Defiance, Big Shane Thornton, Ken Smith, Austin Stewart & Richard Varnell Duo, Justin Bratcher, Scott Shipley, New Orphans, The Jason Kinney Band, The Hwy. 67 Band, hayrides, and a bunch more. What prompted this was a young lady from Bald Knob developing the big C. St. Jude’s, of course, is very big about cancer treatment for children, and doesn’t ever charge the families involved. (I’m proud to say that young Carrie Keeney has been considered cancer free now for a year thanks to treatment at that wonderful hospital.) Barth and the community have come together to have a fundraiser for St. Jude’s. The Central Arkansas Family Picnic will happen for no charge, but will certainly will accept donations. For more information, please visit On October 13 - 16, Hillberry: The Harvest Moon festival happened at The Farm, just north of Eureka Springs. This year the bill was filled with The Ben Miller Band, Railroad Earth, Greensky Bluegrass, The Infamous Stringdusters, The New Mastersounds, Elephant Revival, Turkuas, Larry Keel, Fruition, Split Lip Rayfield, Dirtfoot, The Hattrick, Arkansauce, Mountain Sprout, Friends Of The Phamily, Sad Daddy, The Crescent City Combo, John Henry & Friends, Opal Agafia & The Sweet Nothings, The Ozark Travelers and more. This, of course, was a campout festival, and The Farm is fully equipped for an enormous campout party…just you and, say, 5,000 of your music-loving friends,

Jason Hale

all sleeping together and carrying on. One of our primary photo-elves, the very talented Meredith Mashburn, was there. See her photo gallery elsewhere on this site. The Farm sits about 9 miles outside of historic Victorian town of Eureka Springs Arkansas which offers a wide variety of shopping and nightlife entertainment… This venue offers 360 degree panoramic views of the heart of the Ozarks. In addition to being a campground, the venue also hosts multi-day music festivals, concerts, food competitions and more. Kudos to concert promoter Jon Walker for creating this wonderful festival (and the venue, The Farm). Call them at 1-888-762-7158 or visit… In Central Arkansas……. We were shocked a few weeks ago that Midtown Billiards burned. The downtown club is one of the best rooms in Arkansas, and has been closed to repair. In a nutshell, the big damage is from smoke and water, and apparently began from shorted out electric wires, but that’s basically hearsay at this point. We’re told that the club should be back up and running very soon. An incredible thing has taken place though. Right away a number of clubs created fundraisers…not for Midtown, mind you, but for their out-of-work employees…the club folks really are a family and they tend to take care of each other. Thus far, Area 51, Stickyz, Fourquarters bar and others have produced delightful shows to raise funds for EMPLOYEES OF ANOTHER CLUB! Meanwhile, after it does get back opened, for bookings please email or call her at 501-351-7117……

Congratulations are in order to Don Dugan and Dugan’s Irish Pub for hitting their 6th anniversary. I recall it like it was yesterday. One night I stopped into see him at the Markham Street Grill where he was the manager…as always we got lost in our conversation, with him telling me about an idea he had to build a brand-new club "some day" downtown, and asking me what I thought of the idea. We basically woodshedded about the concept for a few minutes. I stopped back in a couple weeks later, and he shoved a blue print in my hands. “This will be my new club…”

Midtown Billiards

Already? Keep in mind that I’m used to people in this business pipe-dream out loud often…it goes with the territory. Normally, that’s the last I hear about those dreams. In Don’s case, though, it was totally real. Two weeks later I stopped in the club again, and right away he pulled me out to his car to drive us downtown to go show it off. The basic Dugan’s Pub ceation had not only started, but they had made a great deal of progress. Within weeks it was a REALITY. I saw the man, essentially, give birth to one very successful restaurant/night club. Within a couple of weeks they opened. And that was 6 years ago… Set to appear in the coming weeks

Beer fest…), a Halloween Jam featuring FreeVerse, Rob-O’s 22nd Annual Halloween Hooty Hoo, the return of the New Orleans band Chapter: Soul, songstress Opal Agafia & The Sweet Nothings, Big Damn Horns, Weakness for Blondes and more.

A full-fledged liquor store, Stratton’s also has a wide array of important treats for your munchie needs…see their menu on the website at duganspublr. com. You will be glad you did…and surprised that there’s a store in these parts at all like this… Adjacent to Dugan’s and Stratton’s Market is now Skye’s Little Bistro.

too…and the bar is worth writing home about. For bookings at the Ohio, please call (501)627-0702…….

Heavy Suga' & The SweeTones

In Hot Springs……. With Autumn upon us the tourist crowd usually drops off quite a bit, allowing the locals to get out safely - well, okay, safer than it was - and the National Park gets back to being more of a home town than a city. The Big Chill is home away from home for hundreds of musicians, because they are treated at home at the club. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: on any given night, almost no matter who is really playing, there are countless players sitting in…and even if they don’t they’re sitting there adding their musical energy to the mix, anyway. Officially appearing in the coming weeks are Moxie, Jeff Hartzell, Lightnin’ Lee Langdon (one of the very best musicians anywhere in the world, actually), Craig Horton, Brick Fields (also some of the best players anywhere), Trey Johnson & Dave Almond, Professor Tele, David Ball, Unseen Eye, the return of the incredible Heavy Suga’ & The SweeTones, Christine DeMeo, Joe Hall, Mister Lucky, Mike Mayberry & The Slow Hands, R & R and a bunch more. See the Sound section for dates and details. The Big Chill is open every day, has pool tables, huge screen TVs for sports, several outdoor smoking lounges, a smoke-free bar and some excellent bar food too. The non-smoking main room move has brought people in that haven’t been there in years. Sure, there are still smokers there, but the biggest part of the club is now smoke-free inside. Plus, and this is the big one, there’s no cover charge here (except during special occassions!) For bookings please call (501)6245185……. Another club worth visiting in Hot Springs is the Ohio Club on Bathhouse Row. The Ohio is the oldest music venue in Arkansas, and there’s a reason for that. Now, keep in mind that during Prohibition most watering holes had to close their doors…all were supposed to. Fact is that illustrious Hot Springs, Arkansas, was playing under the table in those days…the town was famous for it’s casino action of course, and the good folks of the area were very much a different bunch of their own rules so-to-speak… So. During Prohibition there was a false wall as you entered the Ohio. The ones who knew would bypass that wall and head upstairs to the bar and gaming room. There, of course, they would party hard in every way possible. Al Capone, of course, hung out in Hot Springs often, back in its casino gambling days. He claimed it was “for the water,” referring to the natural hot baths. The Ohio has music 7 days a week. Every Sunday is Larry Womack and Jacquiline, Mondays features the John Calvin Brewer Band, Tuesday is Legacy Duo, Wednesdays is Hump Night Blues Band, Thursdays is for live jazz, and weekends feature the house band, The Ohio Club Players. The food here is superbly prepared,

The new Doc ‘n’ Maggie’s is drawing them in. Formerly Razorback Pizza, they’ve added new menu items, added new bar services, torn out walls, and are in the process of renovating overall. It’s a happening music venue now, rather than a pizza parlor that happened to have live music, too. Set to appear in the coming weeks are Even Money Players, Moxie, Big Damn Horns, The Dean Agus Band, Crash Legacy, Trajikly White, Shari, Taber & Young Trio and more. For bookings call (501)5251616…….. Maxine’s checks in with an impressive list this time out. Look for shows featuring Iron Tongue, Adam Faucet & The Tall Grass, Underground Sounds, Foul Play Cabaret Burlesque Show, Hawtmess, Notice To Quit, Dylan Earl & Post Country Westerns, The Chads, Sad Palomino, Dead Soldiers, Carrie Nation &

The Speakeasy, Poor Ol’ Uncle Fatty, A. Sinclair, Beat Burns, The Bristol Hills, The Rios, Recognizer, Manatees, The Mold, Dirtfoot, Howlin’ Brothers, The Libras, Isaac Alexander, Oh My Blue Sky, Amyjo Savannah, Tomas Gorrio & The Traveling Gypsy and more. Maxine’s, of course, was a legendary brothel in the town back in Hot Springs’ golden years - when it was a gambling city before Las Vegas even existed. For bookings please email, or call (501)3210909……. In Closing…….

Woke up this morning

My King Biscuit 2016

31 years after kick-off, Helena still has the blues

---Deb Finney (Deb Finney is the host of KABF’s Blues House Party every Friday from 3 to 5 PM.)

My first trip to the King Biscuit Blues Festival in Helena, AR was in 1987. It was a pilgrimage, of sorts. Having lost my younger brother, Billy, in a tragic accident earlier in the year a group of us headed to the Biscuit because he wanted to go there. We were a rag tag bunch of college kids and grown ups (my girlfriends and I) but we were all sitting on the levee jamming on the blues music and sunshine that day. Having been to the Biscuit many times since then, I know the ins and outs of the festival. Sure, I did the Tent City thing; been there, done that. Having found a new location to “camp”, if you call in a nice camper with a/c, water and electricity camping that is, we are a few short blocks from the festival and we have amenities (something that is a lot more important to me these days). The festival changed things up a bit this year and added an event on Wednesday night. They called it Warm Up Wednesday. Previously, it was home to the Michael Burks Memorial Jam and folks would show up and jam on Wednesday night. This year they added the First Annual Bobby Rush Slim Chicken’s Pickin’ Party featuring Bobby Rush and friends at 8 p.m. They moved the Michael Burks jam up to 3pm to 7pm. Some thought that would hurt the jam but I have to say there were more people there on Wednesday afternoon at the jam than I have ever seen at the jam on Wednesday nights. Bobby Rush, a Biscuit favorite, has been a centerpiece of the festival since it began. The event was also a cd release party for Bobby’s new cd Porcupine Meat on Rounder Records. image post There was a meet and greet with Bobby earlier in the afternoon at Southbound Pizza (which became our regular “get out of the heat and get something to eat” joint). We kicked around back stage visiting with folks and finally got a chance to sit down and chat with Bobby a bit. Chuck and I visited with Bobby and got caught up on everything. It is always a great time to sit down with Bobby and chat a bit. We promised to stick around for the show and we did. Bobby put on his usual entertaining show, complete with the “girls” who can move their bodies in ways one could never even imagine. We ran into Jumpin’ Johnny Sansone backstage, having just seen him in Vegas at the Big


Blues Bender, and chatted with him a bit. He was guesting with Bobby a little later. Bobby wowed the crowd and had a grand time. After the show we wandered over to the Wild Hog Saloon to catch up with friends and listen to the jam there. Some of the folks from Birthright Blues Band out of Sulphur Springs, TX were there, along with Tommy Gatlin and Quicksand Martin. Heather Crosse showed up and jammed a bit. It was the perfect start to the King Biscuit this year. Thursday was a devilishly hot day. I have to admit that the heat and campsite visitors kept me close to the campsite most of the afternoon but we finally made it down in time to see some of Reba Russell’s fine set on the Main Stage. He also caught some of Eric Gales blistering set and from the crowd reaction, it was very well received. The headliners were Sonny Landreth with special guest Roy Rogers and that made for a great end to the first night of the festival. One of the best kept secrets at the Biscuit is the Front Porch Stage in the Miller Annex of the Delta Cultural Center. It is open to the public and free of charge. Those that do know how wonderful it is get there early to get the limited seats. Others crowd around at the back and sit in the aisles to hear some of the most awesome blues around. Carla Robinson books this stage and does a phenomenal job of it. This year I was asked to emcee the stage and was thrilled to do so along with Ron Kelley of the Delta Cultural Center. We worked alongside Ben and Leon who did sound and stage. Thursday we kicked off the Front Porch Blues Bash with Stephen Blues Dude” Duncan. Stephen hails from Atlanta, GA and • Out House Reading • 2016

plays country blues. What a great way to start the bash with his beautiful pickings and singing. He was followed by Guitar Mac MacKnally. Guitar Mac, of Sacramento, CA chatted with me backstage for a bit. He is not a stranger to the Biscuit coming most every year and busking on Cherry Street. Originally from Cotton Plant, AR he migrated to the West Coast. He

worked in the auto industry and, at times, drove a cab. While driving cabs, he used to take breaks and run to the clubs a play a bit, then hop back into the cab for a few more fares. He plays delta style blues and kept us rocking during his set. He was followed by a most entertaining artist, Brotha Ric Patton. Brotha Ric Patton performs live daily on the app “Periscope” and has over 5,000 followers who tune in to watch his one man band performances. He calls them VIPs. He introduced his band to the crowd by introducing on guitar “Ric’s hands”, on drums “Ric’s feet” and on harmonica “Ric’s lips”. For his first number he included the crowd. He told the story of being 5 years old and writing his first blues song. He was at his grandmother’s house and his sister broke his plastic guitar by using it to shut the door. He found a metal spice can and heated it up on a fire and pressed it on her forehead. He said his grandmother did not take too kindly to that and, as a result, he was able to write his very first blues song. He had the crowd to hold up one hand and called it “the booty” and the other hand was the “booty whipper” and he had them start whipping the booty while he sang his blues song which was the same verse repeated a variety of ways “I ain’t gonna do that no more Big Mama, I ain’t gonna do it no more”. He was a hit. Go check Brother Ric Patton of Huntsville, AL out on Periscope some night. He performs from the back of his van, the street corner or wherever he might be. You will love it. Ben Wiley Payton was next. Mr. Payton is a tall, distinguished man with a large smile and quiet demeanor. Mr. Payton is an acoustic blues artist with roots in the Delta. He was born in Coila, MS in the hill country but moved as a teen with his family to Chicago. He fell into the city’s blues and soul scene through the late 70s but took time off to raise his family. In the 90s he got back into acoustic blues and moved back to Mississippi. His style is best described as Country Blues. He was chosen to represent the state of Mississippi for the American Folklife Center’s Homegrown Concert Series at the Library of Congress and performed at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D. C. His country blues wowed the crowd and we all enjoyed his set. Bill “Howl-n-Madd” Perry was scheduled to close out the day at the Front Porch Stage but was ill. His daughter Shy and son, Bill, along with drummer Joe Eagle took the stage over. Shy and Bill both were on keyboards and they had the crowd going. Shy gyrated and danced the whole time she played keyboards and the crowd adored her. They played off each other well, sharing the spotlight and tearing it up! It was a great end to a fantastic day of music at the stage. The only other performance that was a must-do for me on Friday was Linsey Alexander Band on the Lockwood/Stackhouse Stage and I was asked to emcee that performance. I was thrilled to introduce Lin-

albums. Kenny won a Grammy himself in 2011 for his work on Joined at the Hip with Pinetop Perkins and Willie “Big Eyes” Smith. Joining him was Bob Margolin on Guitar. Bob was hired by Muddy Waters in 1973 and he toured the world playing and jamming with blues and rock musicians but says his biggest thrill was “playing Muddy’s blues with him”. Also joining in was Bob Stroger on Bass. Originally from Missouri, he moved to Chicago as a teen. Bob got into the blues scene by being hired to drive his brother in law to play in a blues band with J. B. Hutto. He is a self-taught guitarist and eventually starting playing the bass guitar. He backed Eddie King, Otis Rush, Sunnyland Slim, Mississippi Heat and many more. Omar Coleman, Harmonica, also joined them. Omar is recognized as one

sey and his band. There was a great crowd ready and waiting, including several Chicago folks including artist Mike Wheeler and Blues on Halstead Manager Jennifer Littleton. They were there to see their hometown blues great. Linsey Alexander was born in Mississippi, raised in Memphis, TN and made Chicago’s southside his home. After introducing him, I joined the crowd down front and we rocked and rolled the entire time. The crowd grew larger and larger and he had a huge audience enjoying his performance. It was electric blues, it was Chicago blues and it had the folks by the balls. There were lots of crowd whoops and whistles. It was the best way to end the night’s performances. Saturday brought me back to the Front Porch Stage to emcee again. We started it all off with Richard “Rip Lee” Pryor. WOW. He did not have to go far to earn his blues patch. He is the son of legendary Harmonica player Snooky Pryor. Rip Lee started at a young age by blowing his dad’s discarded harmonicas and mimicking his records. He later played guitar with his dad. Rip performs as a one man band with guitar and harmonica. His music had folks up dancing, particularly one gentleman named Johnny who had the crowd hollering with his juke joint dancing while Rip Lee performed. Johnny told me he learned to dance when he was little by peeping into the juke joints and watching the women dance. Robert Kimbrough Sr. Blues Connection was next. Robert Kimbrough, Sr. David Kimbrough, Kenny Kimbrough and Artemus Leseur brought the Mississippi Hill Country sound to the stage. They tore it up. We all loved it and the Front Porch Stage was on fire. Up next was Willie Cobbs. Willie was born in Smale, AR (between Helena and Forrest City) and was involved in gospel music as a child. In his early 20s he moved to Chicago. He performed throughout the 60s – 80s and also opened clubs; in Stuttgart, AR he ran the Blue Flame and later opened The Turning Point in Itta Bena, MS. In the early 90s he began recording again and proved he was alive and well and still performing his blues. Willie had a band backing him as he played harmonica and interacted with the audience. He started with a bluesy version of “Who is He and What is He to You?” which set the tone. His playing and singing got Johnny the dancer up again and they even had a mini dance off; two older gentlemen twisting and turning to the blues. Willie whipped the crowd up and they were more than ready to continue the party with Vasti Jackson. Vasti is a world renowned guitarist, vocalist, songwriter, Mississippi living blues legend, Cultural Ambassador and 2015 Albert King Lifetime Guitar award recipient. His talent and showmanship were outstanding and he performed some classics and originals. He represents Mississippi well. image post Kenny “Beedy Eyes” Smith followed with his all-star band They just finished playing on the main stage and rushed over to the Front Porch Stage where the performance is much more intimate and up close. Kenny is the son of Willie “Big Eyes” Smith. Kenny grew up in the same house where Muddy Waters once lived in Chicago. He grew up surrounded by his dad’s friends, including Muddy. His dad was Muddy’s drummer and played on all of Muddy’s Grammy winning

of the top ten harmonica players in the country. Born and raised on Chicago’s west side he learned harmonica from the music of Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy, Sam Cooke, O. V. Wright and more. This high caliber talent put on one heck of a show that showcased their individual talents, as well. This was a phenomenal end to the Front Porch Stage line up and a great set up for the Youth Jam to follow. The Youth Jam featured Marcus “Mookie” Cartwright leading the jam. The youth participating this year were Grace Kuch, a 13 year old guitarist from Colorado, D. R. Diamon a 16 year old drummer from Sulphur Springs, TX and Six String Andrew, an 11 year old guitarist from the Gulf Coast. These young people had some assistance from Carla Robinson and Ron Kelley on bass guitar. As usual, they got down and got the crowd on its feet. These kids are the future of the blues and the blues will be in great hands. That ended the festivities at the Delta Cultural Center and what a wonderful two days it was. By no means was that the end of the festival. I was able to catch a bit of Trey Johnson and Jason Willmon on the street before having to get to the Lockwood/Stackhouse stage to catch Beverly “Guitar” Watkins, a 76 year old blues guitarist that can blow the socks off performers half her age. Originally from Commerce, GA she met Piano Red in her junior year of high school and joined his band playing in and around the clubs of Atlanta, GA. She also played with Eddie Tigner, Joseph Smith and Leroy Redding. In 1998, along with Koko Taylor and Rory Block, she was part of the all-women “Hot Mamas Tour”. This was an awesome show to catch. I have always wanted to see her perform and was beyond excited to get to see her. She did not disappoint. On stage, she was dressed simply and looked like she could be a really stern grandma. She played guitar with great force and brass and she was stunning! The crowd loved her and could not get enough but when she suddenly swung the guitar over her head and continued to play with the guitar behind her head and never missing a lick, the crowd went wild. I had such high expectations for this performance and I was not disappointed. While I missed a lot of performances on the Main Stage, I certainly do not feel I missed a great festival. I loved the music at the Front Porch Stage, on the street and at the Lockwood/Stackhouse stage and count this year’s festival experience for me as “outstanding”. ---DF • Out House Reading • 2016

2016 Big Dam Blues Party North Little Rock, Arkansas Saturday, October 15 was a gorgeous sunny day for a blues festival and Deb Finney of KABF Blues House Party brought the BIG DAM BLUES PARTY back for its second year. Everything went as planned and the folks that attended were treated to some mighty fine blues music. The event, a benefit for KABF and the Spa City Blues in the Schools program, was held at Argenta Plaza and had an accompanying poker run. Festival goers were treated to performances by the AR River Blues Society blues challenge winners Josh Stoffer (solo/duo) and Akeem Kemp Band (band) to kick it all off. They were followed by Blues Boy Jag & The Juke Joint Zombies who were Swingin the Blues like it’s 1955. Trey Johnson and Jason Willmon played their entertaining style of blues for the appreciative crowd. The Big Dam Blues Party All Stars featuring Gil Franklin, Charles Woods, Ivan Yarborough, Cecil Parker and James Chicken Dorris delivered a tight blues set and even ventured into some Prince. Up next was the Michael Burks Project, with Josh Parks, Lance Womack, Stuart Baer and Jerry Bone. They played classic Michael Burks songs and promo’dthe release of “I’m A Bluesman” a project between Wightman Harris and Bobbie Burks. Then the Spa City Youngbloods took to the stage. These are the Blues in the Schools Kids. They thrilled everyone with their enthusiasm and their talent. They were having great fun!! These kids are so excited about playing the blues and have done really well under the supervision of Sherree Hughes and local musicians who volunteer their time with these kids. Next up were the Arkansas Brothers; Jess and Tim Hoggard and Matt Pierce. This three piece band brings it on. With originals and covers they are wild and crazy and crowd pleasing. Earnest”Guitar” Roy & The Clarksdale Rockers put on a great performance despite Earnest trying to get over the flu of some sort. He still gave it his all and the crowd appreciated it. The headliner was Kenny Neal. Kenny was excited to come to Little Rock as he had not been here in several years. He put on a fantastic show and the crowd loved him. He performed songs from his new release “Bloodline” and included his swamp blues versions of some blues classics. All in all it was a great Big Dam Blues Party… • Out House Reading • 2016


Family Picnic

Black Oak Arkansas to headline

Fundraiser for St. Jude’s Hospital at NCA Amphitheater ---Terry Gabrion Saturday, October 29th will be an amazingly special day at the North Central Arkansas Amphitheater just north of Bald Knob. Outside of the fact that there is simply no better way to spend a Saturday than out in the open air of the countryside enjoying an entire day of quality live performances by some of the finest acts in the region - the North Central Arkansas Family Picnic and benefit for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital doesn’t cost any more than a side dish for the 5:00 p.m. Pot Luck as owner/promoter Barth Grayson is providing the main courses of Tasmanian Bear Stew & Whole Roasted Hog! Even the parking and camping are free of charge. There will also be Hayrides compliments of the Hillbilly Haystore! To emphasize the reason for the show, six-year-old Bald Knob resident Carrie Keeney is being honored as “Queen for a Day” as she recently celebrated a year of being cancer free thanks in large part to our friends at St. Jude’s. Headlined by one of the most amazing rock-n roll acts to ever come from The Natural State, Black Oak Arkansas, the entire show kicks off at 12 noon with long-time master of ceremonies Gabe doing an acoustical set, followed by local rockers Defiance. Then there will be a chance for anyone to show their talent at around 2:00 p.m. during an “open mic” segment. If you would like to show off your talent just check in at the stage before the show. One of the region’s best acts, Big Shane Thornton will take it to new heights after that, along with a great acoustic set by Ken Smith. A most talented duo, made up of long-time masters of music Austin Stewart and Richie Varnell will keep the musical tsunami rolling followed by one of the most talented younger acts in the state - Justin Bratcher. The rock-n-roll climbs to stratospheric heights as Hiway 67 heats up the stage for the hardest working band in the country - Black Oak Arkansas! And, to keep it on the front burner, one of the finds of the century, the Jason Kinney Band, rolls in from Missouri with their totally original sound. To close out the show another Missouri native and a legendary “one man band,” who has made over 100 appearances on the Grand ‘Ole Opry and played with both Kid Rock’s Band and the late Johnny Cash - Scott Shipley - will take it to the traditional after-the-show bonfire where performers and campers gather for some additional acoustic offerings and fellowship. The event is being sponsored by all of the Crain Media radio stations (99.1 fm “the Hawg”; “All the Hits” Z100 fm; KWCK 99.9 “Continuous Country”; 106.5 “Vintage Hits”; 105.7 “The Bull”; and Y107.1 “My Country”) Eichhorn Family Dentistry.

In 1980 a then young Barth Grayson promoted his first concert at his family’s farm just outside of Bald Knob. It was his

David Alan Coe and Delbert McClinton. The first “Knobstock” - in celebration of the original Woodstock - was held in 1988 at the amphitheater and featured original Woodstockers Canned Heat. They were flown in specifically for this celebration from Las Angeles. Now, with over 50 concerts and 36 years under his belt, Barth Grayson is back in the concert promotion business. In 1989 Grayson held the first ticketed event at Little Rock’s Riverfront Amphitheater hosted by the Arkansas Jaycees. Starting with Larry Raspberry and the

love of music that started this journey that has spanned several decades and included several annual events including the Strawberry Jam, the Arkansas Jam, and Indian Summer Jam. The early shows were staged on a hay wagon, then a new front porch was constructed on an old homeplace on the property. They were successful enough that in 1982 an actual stage complex was constructed. It was christened the North Central Arkansas Amphitheater and Arkansas musical history was made. The first national act, Black Oak Arkansas, performed that fall on October 26. The next year, 1983, Head East and international superstars Metallica played the stage. From 1984 until 1988 classic rockers such as Rare Earth, Autograph, Georgia Satellites, BTO, Molly Hatchett, Foghat, and the all-time crowd record setter Nazareth saw crowds from 1,000 to 4,000! In 1988 Leon Russell and Edgar Winter were featured at the Strawberry Jam. Then a cross-over country attempt was made with Dan Seals, John Anderson,

Highsteppers, Blackfoot and Kansas then partnering for major events such as Dwight Yokum, Moody Blues, Billy Ray Cyrus, Chuck Berry and Jerry Lee Lewis, Grayson’s Media Masters Entertainment Group also helped produce the largest show on record at Riverfront... The legendary Lynyrd Skynyrd with a crowd rivaling 15,000. Grayson sadly admits he passed on up-andcomer Alan Jackson and legendary guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughn. Another partnership saw the rainout of the recently deceased noble Englishman Joe Cocker. In 1993, Grayson settled down, got married to his beautiful wife Amy, and refinanced his family farm. That in fact, put him out of the concert business...but saved the family farm. After a 1994 Strawberry Jam featuring Firefall and Mark Collie, Grayson took a break from the concert world. In 1995 he jumped headlong into the local newspaper business with the purchase of the Bald Knob Banner and

White County Record newspapers. Then creating and merging the White River Delta Dispatch, Searcy Sun and Sugarloaf Sun. After enjoying a successful and gratifying 20 years they were temporarily closed and will be put up for sale later in 2016. With the Grayson’s two children both college age now, Grayson is getting back to something he truly loves - producing concerts. An old friend and business colleague now operates a Contemporary Christian promotion business currently operating in 42 states. He also maintains ties in the country and rock music agencies. His company is lending a hand to get this venture off to a successful start. Negotiations are also underway to develop the old Joy movie theater in downtown Bald Knob into a top quality performance hall. In order to bring the national and international acts the amphitheater and its patronage have been used to in the past, a remodeling of the old facility is needed. Many local business sponsors as well as all of the performers for this year’s Knobstock... are contributing their time and/or money to make it happen. True patrons of the arts like Bald Knob’s Ruby Suviaz, the Bulldog Restaurant, the Silver Dollar Grill, Hays Appliance & Clothing, East Park Autoplex, Eichhorn Family Dentistry, Sound Masters Productions, TC’s Midtown Grill, Arkansas Extermination, Big Red Productions and Nightflying the entertainment magazine have contributed to the project. Grayson wishes to acknowledge all of the extra attention to detail provided by the local newspapers and radio stations that are participating in this Amphitheater Fundraising Project. With over 18,000 vehicles passing through Bald Knob on a daily basis the customer base for this and other business ventures in the Bald Knob area appears very sound. While at the Riverfront, Grayson was blessed with the volunteer base of the Arkansas and Greater Little Rock Jaycees, while serving as administrative VP. Starting over Grayson acknowledges having a very sound working relationship with all authorities. Open Air Productions is well on their way at re-establishing a much needed “family” made up of business associates and volunteers alike. “It takes a whole village”... The revenue streams generated will obviously benefit all of the gas stations, convenience stores, motels, restaurants, grocery stores and tourist attractions in White plus all the surrounding counties. In 1987 there were patrons from 12 different states that attended the Strawberry Jam. In addition to concerts, the North Central Arkansas Amphitheater is available for virtually any outdoor event from corporate picnics and weddings to family reunions.

Best Of Burger - (1949 - 1998)

Things We Miss About Burger Reprinted from various editions TEN EASY HINTS FOR COMBATING THOSE HOLIDAY HOMESICK BLUES ---Burger When you’re feelin’ blue around holiday time because you won’t be able to go “home” to see relatives and friends, try these little hints guaranteed to take the edge off your blue mood. 1. Hold a mental picture of that pathetic Christmas dinner at your senile Aunt Myrtle’s house when you were ten. Remember? The menu included cornmeal pancakes with Karo syrup, fried squash dipped in beer and breaded with last Christmas’ fruitcake crumbs, and Myrt’s holiday special prune sherbet punch and rice/ cucumber finger sandwiches on whole wheat. Kinda makes that lonely old tv dinner and re-runs sound pretty good, doesn’t it? 2. Recall the time dinner was held at your brother’s first apartment in college. The food was cooked by his roommate’s pair-bonded friend Suzie Zodiac Daffodill... menu: rice cake dressing, vegetarian soy bean turkey roll, unsweetened persimmon juice with watercress, unsalted acorn/thistle trail mix, and karob-coated oat patties for dessert - yum, yum! 3. Remember the year that everybody had to attend your hyperactive nephew’s Christmas program at the extra-extra-exceptional school and rehab center? The play was to be “Amahl And The Night Visitors” but turned into “Chaos And The Wild Bunch” when little Jeffrey Junior and his mentally-challenged classmates destroyed the set and set fire backstage in an overt display of the school’s “take your own initiative” educational program. 4. Think back to year-before-last when your therapy-renewed, manic depressive, goofy sister Clara decided to invite her “innovative” therapist along with her entire roster of patients to dinner at Mom’s. The yams were delicious, but the thorazine-saturated horde of “recovering societal victims” snarfed up all the rest of the food before it got around to you and then demonstrated Doctor Von Hesterman’s experimental therapy procedure. The entire creepoid clan ended up flopping around on the living room rug like a bunch of grounded flounders while screaming “It’s not my fault! It’s all my parents’ fault!” 5. Remind yourself that, even if the dinner itself doesn’t turn into a disaster, you’ll still have to listen to your crazy Uncle Elbert’s disjointed accounts of his heroic military adventures in the first and second world wars and his spying exploits during the Spanish-American War and the American Revolution. Then you have to respond with awestruck reverence while he displays his various scars and medals, which are really your old pop bottle cap collection that he bought at your mother’s yard sale when you were away at camp. 6. Try forcing yourself to act sincere when you imagine telling the relatives that your decision to study business, accounting theory, and principles of price gouging was without a doubt the wisest move you could have ever made and that all you are and ever hope to be you owe to having listened to their advice as a freshman. 7. Remember all those mean and ugly cousins who used to make your life miserable when you still lived at home and couldn’t avoid being cooped up with them for endless hours in an over-heated house after having been forced to eat at least a big spoonful of each of the dishes brought by all your weird aunts and all you wanted to do was watch the football games on tv.


8. Promise yourself that when your parents call you will beseech them to put your financial condition out of their minds and think only of themselves for a change. Cough and shudder audibly, then laugh off the lack of heat and water in your apartment as “just part of the growing-up thing” - if you’re subtle enough and don’t overdo it, you can be sure of an extra three or four hundred dollars at the Western Union office when they insist on rushing down there immediately. 9. Drop a cheerful note in the mail about a week before Christmas, telling everyone how well things are going. List several made-up invitations to friends’ or fellow students’ homes for the holidays, then clearly print - Return Address - Union Rescue Mission, Skid Row, USA c/o “Big Jimmy” Your Proud Little College Man. 10. Bear in mind that to be home for the holidays in the company of those you love is a much more beautiful experience when it only happens every four or five years…

POOR BURGER’S ALMANIAC ---Burger Words to guide you through life with a mini­mum of ass-whuppin’s at the hands of friends, acquaintances, and total strangers 1. Avoid referring to the investigating officer at your next traffic accident as “officer pig-butt, the autistic flatfoot. 2. It is not advisable to ask female friends who seem to have gained weight since you last saw them if theirs was a planned pregnancy. 3. Men who are balding and have opted to wrap the remain­ing dozen three-foot-long hairs on their head into a ridicu­lous conical covering for their balding pates are unappre­ciative of insensitive individuals who suggest that the hair might serve better as a necktie, while exposing the naked cranium for use as a reflective surface for signalling far away war parties, or the pretext for a joke concerning the greater number of hairs to be found on a slice of bacon, et cetera. 4. Bookies rarely associate humor with the remark “double or nothing” or “wait ‘til my ship comes in.” 5. The microwaving of pets during childhood is thought to be contributory to premature placement of parents into sub­standard or even abusive environments such as the dank cellar of the adult child’s winter home in Connecticut or re­tirement centers specializing in the care of helpless, over-medicated sadists whose past histories often reveal behavior such as masquerading as concerned, well-intentioned par­ents. 6. Even the innocent use of nonsensical and undefinable terms such as kazongas, bazoombas, ninners, or pookie-puffs within earshot of the overly defensive victims of self-esteem deficiencies or within striking distance of hyper-au­ditory militant feminists may result in sleep loss, para­noia, or fear of unjustified physical attacks in the darkness. Terms like boobs, knockers, mams, or udders are probably best left unused as well, at least until things become less tense or until humor between the sexes is again acceptable. 7. One’s parents are often mentally unable to connect terms such as fiancé, pregnant, moving in with, or passion pawn with names like Laya Moore, Spike the Anti-Christ, Mar­garet of Gomorrah, or Jimmy Joe • Out House Reading • 2016

Hamslammer. 8. Dining etiquette specifically excludes behavior toward restaurant staff involving references to mobile amusement park activities containing the word “mustache,” or leering lewdly when ordering shepherds pie, two large glasses of milk, a taco, rump roast, chicken breasts or thighs, or hot but­tered buns...just give ‘em the item number or point to it on the menu...and don’t smirk, giggle, or make funny noises. 9. In rare instances involving insect hairs or unidentifi­ able foreign matter in or around the actual food, creativity is the order of the day...e. g. “What’s this fly doing in my soup?” Rather than the stock response “the back stroke,” substitute the phrase: “He’s experiencing an epileptic seizure, brought on by his nausea, disgust, and the anxiety associated with having witnessed the disgraceful disregard for local, state, and federal regulations and guidelines con­cerning hygiene, inoculation, and deportment of employees working or loitering in the area of food preparation.”

MORTON DOWNY BURGER - About Guns If I’ve heard it once, I’ve heard it a hundred times. “When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.” I read the paper every day; in fact, I read both papers every day and I can only remember twice in all this time that a law-abiding citizen shot a bad guy in self defense. Hell, half the time, if you shoot somebody while defending yourself or your home, you’re more likely to be charged with a crime than the creep you shot. I say outlaw guns and make hand grenades legal. At least that way you don’t just injure some creep and leave him crippled for life (or long enough to sue you for every dime you have). Make bazookas legal for the common taxpayer and I bet that within two weeks, every lousy street gang in the U. S. A. will be as tame as your Aunt Margie’s Sunday School class, or as stiff as Uncle Merle’s Sunday overalls. It’s time that the average peace-lovin’, law-abidin’ citizen had an even chance against this filthy street garbage that’s intimidatin’ the citizenry and robbin’ us all of our hard-earned cash and treasured personal possessions. If every tax­payer was issued one o’ those army surplus mortars like you see on them teevee war pictures, the rancid, thievin’ gutter snipes that are causin’ all the God-fearin’, hard-workin’ folks who make this country great to have to hide behind their triplelocked doors would give a second thought to burglin’ or strong-armin’ the average Joe or Jolene. I say fire off a few rounds in the genral direction of any ol’ sleazy, suspicious lookin’ would-be maimer, mauler, or cut-purse and ka-blooey: sliced, diced, and thoroughly ten­derized crook shreds all over everywhere...har, har, har...try that a few times and see what those shmoes have to say about it...Nothin’, that’s what. And think about this: when’s the last time anybody ever had an accident in the home involving hand grenades, bazookas, or mortars...hunh? Never, that’s when. Then think about this: when guns are outlawed, give us good guys some real firepower. It’s time this country got back to the good ol’ law ‘n’ order like we had in the ‘30s or the Civil War. And whoever don’t like it can kiss my AK-47!

UAM Jazz Professor Featured On Grammy-Nominated CD I have begun to share some lessons I have learned during my 80 years. If just one Nightflying reader benefits from applying something I have said here, then it will be well worth my efforts. When I was 42 years old, an old man I respected and liked, gave me a little blue card with this message on it. Looking back over my life, it is probably the most valuable and beneficial principle I have ever learned from any person. “If I become uptight, angry, or frustrated, I and I alone am generating these feelings. No one can make me angry. No one can make me frustrated. I, and I alone, can do this. When I have taken the responsibility for these things, and see them in their proper perspective, the child in me grows up.” And these wise words: We don’t need what Dorothy found. Remember her discovery in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz? She and her trio followed the yellow brick road, only to discover that the wizard was a wimp! He was nothing but smoke and mirrows and tin-drum thunder. Is that the kind of god we need? We don’t need to carry the burden of a lesser god; a god on a shelf, a god in a box, or a god in a bottle. No, we need a God who can place 100 billion stars in our galaxy, and 100 billion galaxies in the universe. We need a God who can shape two fists of flesh into 75 to 100 billion nerve cells, each with as many as 10,000 connections to other nerve cells, place it in a skull, and call it a brain. And we need a God who, while so mind-numbingly mighty, can come in the soft of night and touch us with the tenderness of an April snow. –Max Lucado

MONTICELLO, AR — Claude Askew had never heard of jazz legend Stan Kenton when a friend asked him if he wanted to see the Stan Kenton Orchestra in concert at Louisiana Tech University. Askew was stationed at Barksdale Air Force Base in Shreveport, fresh out of high school. It was October 1971, the Vietnam War was still raging, and Askew had enlisted in the Air Force after his draft lottery number came up first. He had planned to enroll at Henderson State University as a music major but decided enlistment was better than being drafted. Askew went to the concert, sat in the balcony and in his words, “was blown away. I was ready to jump out of the balcony to get closer to the band,” he says. “I realized at that moment that I wanted to do that.” Fast-forward 43 years. Askew is a world-renowned drummer and jazz musician in his own right and part of the music faculty at the University of Arkansas at Monticello. Mike Vax, the long-time conductor and lead trumpet player for the Stan Kenton Legacy Orchestra, contacts Askew. The band’s regular drummer, Gary Hobbs, can’t complete the band’s spring 2015 tour. Would Askew help them out? “I went to Mark Spencer, our dean, to ask him if it was alright for me to be away from campus,” recalls Askew. “He said you gotta do this!” Askew joined the Kenton Orchestra and completed the tour, which took the band through 16 cities in 17 days covering Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas and Oklahoma. Each performance was recorded live and made into an album called Storming Through The South. That album has been nominated for a Grammy. Askew performs on eight of the album’s 13 tracks, providing the beat to “Roy’s Blues Revisited,” “Summer Violets,” “Lefty Leaps In,” “Virna,” “Come Out Swingin’, “Shell Game,” “It Might As Well Be Spring,” and “You Turned The Tables On Me.” Performing with jazz legends is nothing new to Askew. He spent 22 years traveling the world as drummer and for six years conductor of the Airmen of Note, the premier jazz band of the U.S. Air Force, playing with the likes of Tony Bennett, Herbie Hancock and Chaka Khan. Askew holds a degree in music from Henderson State and has been part of the UAM music faculty since 2011. “I spent 22 years playing with great musicians and world class guest artists,” says Askew. “The opportunities I’ve had are a real blessing.”

Best of Burger (1949 - 1998)

born under the creepiest of all signs.......


ARIES (March 21-April 19) Your entire life has been spent in enduring one consequence of failure after another. It seems that elusive Lady Luck has successfully avoided you lo these many years. Cheer up, ‘cause the times they are a-changin’ know those little numbers in the bottle caps that let you win cash or other valuable prizes? You gonna get 40 cents off your next purchase of Legs pantyhose or a small tin of Scoal.......

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) The future holds adventure and romance in the coming days...all those loves gone bad will soon fade into memory when you find yourself cornered in a blind alley by six escaped Puerto Rican serial killers armed with razor sharp butter knives tipped with salmonella-impregnated, week-old mayonnaise... you are rescued at the last minute by a mutant breed of Eurasian pit bulls known as boo-koo-chew chows, all of whom fall immediately in love with either or both of your lower legs... their amorous stamina is surpassed only by their lack of technique (much like your ex-spouse).......

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Ho-hum sighs the ever calm bringer of joy and good things...after inventing a solvent composed of ordinary sand and sewer water...the Gemini bequeaths this priceless boon to mankind for the token remuneration of $1.00, after fortuitously discovering that the miracle goop can reverse the ecological devastation of even the most disastrous of major crude oil spills... Think nothin’ of it, says the soft-spoken presenter of hope to the’s all in a day’s work, say’s Gemini as he humbly accepts the Nobel Prize for overall grooviness...all in a day’s work.......

CANCER (June 21-July 22) Having run out of nice things to say about the Cancer... astrologers the world over first vote to drop Cancer as a sign of the Zodiac...but finally, in a token gesture of compassion... decide to change the sign to “Chicken Pox� in an effort to downplay the general tone of despair associated with those



LEO (July 23-August 22) Legend has it that the first multi-celled organism to slither from the slop-jar of Time’s evolutionary goo and become earth’s first land-dweller guessed it...that old trendsetter...Leo....Unfortunately, the legend also has it that, due to some perverse Faustian, galactic, unspoken law, the Leo agreed to remain in its original slimy and wholly repulsive state for all time, and so we observe the Leo today.

VIRGO (August 23-September 22) As a prime example of “Homo-Erectus Macho Doofus,� Virgo best represents those traits which are most desirable... unfortunately, these traits are only desirable to a small, isolated Aboriginal tribe of 6-toed genetic cross-breeds known as “YakButted-Stem-Winders.� These unique subhuman fur-bearing reptiles are of absolutely no value to society. They spend their days resting up the for the nights’ activity, which involves snoring, grunting and cover-jerking. Recent studies indicate, however, that the Yak-Butted-Stem-Winder, when introduced into the human diet as an experimental protein source, were found to taste nothing like chicken.......

LIBRA (September 23-October 22) Its male members are often thought to be victims of a sideeffect thought to be resultant of years of disgusting inbreeding with their female counterparts... The condition referred to as “the unfortunate making of more Virgos� was, at one point in history, thought to be the Biblical Revelation of the prophet Amos, who spake “Ye: lest we keepest apart the sons and daughters of shall the face of the Earth be infested with a spawn of man-kind much lower than dogs...and so shall these lowly beings increase and multiply ‘til they number greater than the bumps on the green ass of a wet frog...I told you so...� signed, Amos.......

SCORPIO (October 23-November 21) Most anthropologists agree that the world’s first human was a Scorpio...these speculations were recently all but scientifically verified when archaeological teams in northern Africa unearthed the nest of the world’s first Scorpio...indisputable corroboration includes lots of real rusty old Plymouths up on blocks in the front yard and piles of rubbish consisting primarily of chewed-up sunflower seeds and crushed Schlitz Malt Liquor cans.......

SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21) The Sagittarian’s most notable features are beady little shifty eyes and a penchant for tending to the concerns of all others....the Sagittarian is possessed of an intellect, but in at • Out House Reading • 2016

least 80% of the cases tested, the amount possessed was immeasurable on any known scale. Due to the difficulty encountered in the spelling of this sign by its members...most of those polled indicated a desire to spell Sagittarius G.R.U.N.T. henceforth.......

CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19) For those born under the sign of Capricorn, Life’s meaning is clear...Party when you want to; work when you can, eat at your Mom’s house as often as she’ll let you, and never change socks that are still pliable and still seem to be nearly the same color as they were when you put them on.......

AQUARIUS (January 20-February 18) The Aquarian is famous for dressing up like a member of any remote Asian religious cult and then setting up shop in the local air-port terminal. The Aquarian may choose to sell flowers, lapel buttons with catchy, trendy sayings, or KoolAid. What he sells while in this guise is not important....what is important, is that his profits are always spent on supporting organizations which promote the belief that users of smokeless tobacco are far sexier than Southern Baptist Republicans, who prefer bag-pipe music to the sound of classically trained Tiny Tim imitators, softly whistling the chorus of “Bridge Over The River Kwai�.......

PISCES (February 19-March 20) Sometimes in life things as well as people are not what they may seem to be. Examples: 1.) The tiny ant can actually carry many times its own weight; 2.) The ungainly ostrich is actually quite graceful when on the run and can attain speeds of over 40 miles per hour. Likewise, the Pisces of either gender might well appear to be trustworthy, of moderate intelligence, and to be trained in at least some of the social graces....... Š 1992 Nightflying Publications.

I have the unique privilege of being able to travel around the country on occasion. I’m usually traveling for a conference or meeting related to my work which is education. I’m very involved in my professional life and I strive to find new ways to do things, ways to make things better, ways to motivate the people I work with, ways to motivate myself. Going to conferences and meetings provides me the opportunity to network with other professionals in my field, hear about new ideas and techniques, stay up to date on technology and so many other perks. An unintended consequence, or maybe it’s quite entirely intended, is that when the conferences and meetings end each day, usually around 5 or 6 in the evening, is that I find myself with an open dance card. That opportunity has led me to visit some very cool places, try some different things and meet some incredible people. I’ve been able to spend time in Louisville, Las Vegas, Tampa, Cape Cod, Phoenix, New Orleans, Seattle and many, many other places. Ultimately, I gravitate toward music, preferably something local. I’ve found that searching out the local music scene on these trips is worth the experience. I love the local music scenes we have in Arkansas…Hot Springs, Little Rock, Fort Smith, Fayetteville…so it’s always great to see what happens in these other scenes. I like to hear what is being played by other musicians and to see how venues operate. Is it the same everywhere? What are the differences? How are things alike? The answer is: It’s all the same. And, it’s all different. I’ve gone to music jams in New Orleans and Louisville. I’ve attended shows in Tampa, Seattle and Austin. The music is almost always fantastic and the people tend to be the same, always willing to talk about their livelihood and always excited to share their music with new people. Some of my favorite people in music are folks I’ve met

traveling. Take, for example, Smokey Greenwell. He has a booth in the French Market in New Orleans, selling Louisiana music and harmonicas. He also hosts a jam session every Monday night on the corner of Decatur and Esplanade. I met Smokey while wandering through the market one afternoon, years ago. We struck up a conversation and he invited me to the jam. I found out later that Smokey was Lee Oskar’s replacement as the harmonica player in the band WAR. Then there was the time in Louisville a group of us attended the Tuesday night jam at Stevie Ray’s Blues Bar. I walked in to find three of my musician friends jamming on stage…Jason Lockwood, Steve Parrish and Tim Dennison of the Stella Vees. Long-time friends from the IBC in Memphis and frequent visitors to Hot Springs, the Stella Vees, as a collective, and the guys as individuals, have remained friends through the years. Speaking of Lee Oskar, on a visit to the Seattle area a few years back, I got have dinner with him. We were very privileged to be able to hear the great piano player Mose Allison. I still hear from Lee on occasion. I made Oskar’s acquaintance at the IBC in Memphis a year or so earlier. Oskar donates a set of his harmonicas to the Outstanding Harmonica Player in the competition each year. This particular year he was also displaying some of his art work. Through

Damon Fowler

that meeting at a brunch sponsored by the Blues Foundation, I made a friend that I would eventually bring to Hot Springs to play in a festival. Not only did Oskar play the festival, he put on a harmonica workshops and donated a piece of his art. In addition to Oskar, I met a guy who he brought with him who plays saxophone and bass, Scotty Harris. Harris has become one of those friends I can call when I’m in town and have a place to land if need be. One trip to the Destin area landed me in the Funky Little Blues Shack, a tight fitting restaurant and bar that plays host to a lot of great blues acts. This particular night the band was the Damon Fowler Band. I met Damon for the first time that evening, bought some CD’s and have been friends since. So, what’s the point in sharing all these “I got to meet so and so” stories? Well, that’s just it. I got to meet people. I was in the right place at the right time and I met some wonderful people who I connected with and still remain connected to. Had I not taken the opportunity to travel, had I not sought out the music in the places I went to, I’d have never had these experiences. My point is, take a chance. Don’t be afraid to travel this fine country. Don’t be afraid to travel this great world we live in. Isolating ourselves from the experience that life has to offer insulates us. Both culturally and personally. In a world full of fear and hate, it’s a time to reach out and extend a hand to someone new. Did you ever stop to think that other person may be just as afraid of you? Don’t be stifled by the fear the media plants in our minds. Turn off the television and take a walk outside. Greeting the world and experiencing new things doesn’t have to happen on a trip to Las Vegas or Miami. It can happen on the block where you live. Go to a show. Invite your neighbors over. Have a house concert and open the doors wide for everyone to hear. If the police get called, well, invite them in. You probably need to know them, too. So, don’t be afraid. Get out and explore your world. Meet some new people. Re-connect with some old friends. Listen to some music. Enjoy the ride folks. It’s not going to last forever. Wouldn’t you rather leave this world knowing you lived to the fullest, without fear, with a compassionate heart and inquisitive mind, than to simply spend your time hiding behind the curtains with your face buried in the internet? Do it. I’ll catch you backstage. Peace y’all.

Drunk Driving is STUPID

Don’t Be STUPID • Out House Reading • 2016


15. If someone does something stupid on the job, it will be quickly forgotten. Yesterday, scientists in the United States revealed that beer contains small traces of female hormones. To prove their theory, they fed one hundred men twelve pints of beer and observed that 100% of them started talking nonsense and couldn’t drive…

One night, Mrs. McMillen answers the door to see her husband’s best friend, Paddy, standing on the doorstep. “Hello Paddy, but where is my husband? He went with you to the beer factory” Paddy shook his head. “Ah Mrs. McMillen, there was a terrible accident at the beer factory, your husband fell into a vat of Guinness stout and drowned” Mrs. McMillen starts crying. “Oh don’t tell me that, did he at least go quickly?” Paddy shakes his head. “Not really - he got out 3 times to pee…” An Irishman was flustered not being able to find a parking space in a large mall’s parking lot. “Lord,”he prayed,”I can’t stand this.If you open a space up for me,I swear I’ll give up drinking me whiskey, and I promise to go to church every Sunday.” Suddenly, the clouds parted and the sun shone on an empty parking spot. Without hesitation, the man said,”Never mind…I found one…” Paddy and Mick are walking down the road and Paddy’s got a bag of doughnuts in his hand. Paddy says to Mick, “If you can guess how many doughnuts are in my bag, you can have them both…” Gallagher opened the morning newspaper and was dumbfounded to read in the obituary column that he had died. He quickly phoned his best friend Finney. “Did you see the paper?” asked Gallagher. “They say I died!!” “Yes, I saw it!” replied Finney. “Where are ye callin’ from?” Q. What’s the difference between an Irish wedding and an Irish wake? A. One less drunk…

A man in a bar sees a friend at a table, drinking by himself. Approaching the friend he comments, “You look terrible. What’s the problem?” “My mother died in August,” he said, “and left me $25,000.” “Gee, that’s tough,” he replied. “Then in September,” the friend continued, “My father died, leaving me $90,000.” “Wow. Two parents gone in two months. No wonder you’re depressed.” “And last month my aunt died, and left me $15,000.” “Three close family members lost in three months? How sad.” “Then this month,” continued the friend, “absolutely nothing…”

A serious drunk walked into a bar and, after staring for some time at the only woman seated at the bar, walked over to her and kissed her. She jumped up and slapped him silly. He immediately apologized and explained, “I’m sorry. I thought you were my wife. You look exactly like her.” “Why you worthless, insufferable, wretched, no good drunk!” she screamed. “Funny,” he muttered, “you even sound exactly like her…” Two guys were in a bar, and they were both watching the television when the news came on. It showed a guy on a bridge who was about to jump, obviously suicidal. “I’ll bet you $10 he’ll jump,” said the first guy. “Bet you $10 he won’t,” said the second guy. Then, the guy on the television closed his eyes and threw himself off the bridge. The second guy hands the first guy the money. “I can’t take your money,” said the first guy. “I cheated you. The same story was on the five o’clock news.” “No, no. Take it,” said the second guy. “I saw the five o’clock news too. I just didn’t think the guy was dumb enough to jump again!” Reasons to allow drinking at work The below are valid reasons as to why drinking should be allowed at work. If you use them wisely, you may even be able to convince your boss into allowing alcohol. 1. It’s an incentive to show up. 2. It reduces stress. 3. It leads to more honest communications. 4. It reduces complaints about low pay. 5. It cuts down on time off because you can work with a hangover. 6. Employees tell management what they think, not what management wants to hear. 7. It helps save on heating costs in the winter. 8. It encourages carpooling. 9. Increases job satisfaction because if you have a bad job you don’t care. 10. It eliminates vacations because people would rather come to work. 11. It makes fellow employees look better. 12. It makes the cafeteria food taste better. 13. Bosses are more likely to hand out raises when they are wasted. 14. Salary negotiations are a lot more profitable.

A brain walks into a bar and says, “I’ll have a pint of beer please...” The barman looks at him and says “Sorry, I can’t serve you.” “Why not?” askes the brain. “You’re already out of your head…”

Two Irishmen are sitting in a small town bar, where Mick bragged to Sean, “You know, I had me every woman in this town, except of course, me mother and me sister.” “Well,” Sean replied, “between you and me we got ‘em all…” Two Irishmen were digging a ditch directly across from a brothel. Suddenly, they saw a rabbi walk up to the front door, glance around and duck inside. “Ah, will you look at that?” one ditch digger said. “What’s our world comin’ to when men of th’ cloth are visitin’ such places?” A short time later, a Protestant minister walked up to the door and quietly slipped inside. “Do you believe that?” the workman exclaimed. “Why, ‘tis no wonder th’ young people today are so confused, what with the example clergymen set for them.” After an hour went by, the men watched as a Catholic priest quickly entered the whorehouse. “Ah, what a pity,” the digger said, leaning on his shovel. “One of th’ poor lasses must be ill.” Four reasons we know Jesus was Irish... 1. He lived at home until he was thirty. 2. Just before he died, he went out drinking with his buddies. 3. His mother thought he was God. 4. He thought his mother was a virgin. Paddy was picked up on a rape charge. He was placed in a lineup with ten other fellows and the accusing woman was escorted into the room. Paddy jumped forward, and screamed, “That’s her! That’s her! Oi’d recognize her anywhere!” A modest Irish young lass had just purchased some lingerie and asked if she might have the sentence, “If you can read this you’re too damn close!” embroidered on her panties and bra. “Yes Madame,” said the clerk, “I’m quite certain that could be done. Would you prefer block or script letters?” “Braille,” she replied, innocently lowering her lashes.

Mahoney said to his friend McMaken, “I haven’t been feelin’ meself lately!” “’Tis a good thing, too -- that was a nasty habit you had!” responded McMaken.

A couple went to the hospital to have a baby. The doctor told them that he had invented a new machine that would automatically transfer a portion of the mother’s labor pain to the father. He asked if the husband was willing to try it out. Both the husband and wife were very much in favor of it. The doctor set the knob at 10% for starters, explaining that even 10% was probably more pain than the father had ever experienced before. But, as labor progressed, the doctor then adjusted the machine to 20% pain transfer. The husband was still feeling fine. The doctor checked the husband’s blood pressure and pulse and was amazed at how well he was doing. At this, they decided to try for 50%. The husband continued to feel quite well. Since it was obviously helping out his wife considerably, he encouraged the doctor to transfer ALL the pain to him. The wife delivered a healthy baby with virtually no pain. She and her husband were ecstatic. When they got home, they found the mailman dead on the porch.

“Help! Help!” cried the young woman as she staggered up the steps of the police station. “An Irishman molested me!” “How’d you know he was Irish?” inquired the sergeant at the desk. “I had to help him,” she gasped.

Q: What do you call an Irish pervert? A: An Irishman who prefers sex to whisky…

11 Reasons To Go To Work Naked

1. Your boss is always yelling, “I wanna see your ass in here by 8:00!” 2. Can take advantage of computer monitor radiation to work on your tan. 3. Inventive way to finally meet that hunk in Human Resources. 4. “I’d love to chip in, but I left my wallet in my pants.” 5. To stop those creepy guys in Marketing from looking down your blouse/shirt. 6. You want to see if it’s like the dream. 7. So that - with a little help from Muzak - you can add “Exotic Dancer” to your exaggerated resume. 8. People stop stealing your pens after they’ve seen where you keep them. 9. Diverts attention from the fact that you also came to work drunk. 10. Gives “bad hair day” a whole new meaning. 11. No one steals your chair…

Paddy Tries to Hang Himself

Paddy’s in jail. The guard looks in his cell and sees him hanging by his feet. “What the hell you doing?” he asks. “Hanging myself,” Paddy replies. “It should be around your neck,” says the Guard. “I know,” says Paddy, “but I couldn’t fookin’ breathe...”
