Hello everyone, before I start to tell you about what’s happening in the entertainment world around Baltimore and the Washington Metropolitan area, I want to thank my “Young at Hearts” who came out to “Bangin’ with the Boomers” last Thursday at the Promenade DanceSport Facility on Lord Baltimore Drive. It was a great success and all who came seemed to have had a damn good time! I enjoyed hosting the event and seeing the smiles on the faces of my readers. It was a joy to see everyone laughing, singing and dancing with Shirley Duncan, the “Hand-Dancing Queen.”
We received a lot of compliments for the soul food lunch buffet that she catered and the entertainment presented by “Captain Fly Production.” We hope to see you all at the next event on Thursday July 12, 2018 from noon until 3 p.m. Bring, some friends with you! I promise that you will have an even better time, if that is possible. I have tickets call me at 410-833-9474.
Now, according to reports, you have really been reading my columns and I appreciate that. I received a note from Joe Cooper, founder and bandleader of Joe Cooper Project who wants to thank all the folks and the people in the community who came out to the Randallstown Library for the “Free Concertn Celebration of Make Music Day” last week, hosted by his wife and long time radio personality on WEAA 88.9 FM, Sandi Mallory. The Joe Cooper Project is one of Baltimore’s premier Reggae Jazz Fusion Bands. If you missed the event last week, you can catch up with them on Sunday, July 8, 2018 at the “16th Annual Happy Nappy Day” Poets in the Park Festival from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Gwynn Oak Park located at 5010 Gwynn Oak Avenue in Baltimore City.
Let’s not forget that next weekend there will be another outdoor concert held every year on the first Saturday of every month during the summer at the Avenue Bakery located at 2229 Pennsylvania Avenue in Baltimore City from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Bakery owner, James Hamlin invites the public to come out to the courtyard at his Bakery Courtyard to the music concerts featuring performances by some of Baltimore’s consummate musicians and performing artists.
Guests may also contribute to the “Rebuild the Royal Theatre One Brick at a Time” Fund-raising Campaign, by purchasing one or more of the 3,000,000 plus bricks needed to rebuild the iconic venue. Each brick purchased with your donation will have your name or the name of a family member or friend engraved on that brick. So bring your lawn chairs with you and enjoy the music and the delicious food that his daughter and family will cook on the grill. Beverages will be on sale too.
You can find me at the “Liberty Live Summer Concert” on Friday June 29, 2018, in the parking lot of the shopping center located at the 4100 block of Deer Park Road in Randallstown, every Friday until the first Friday in August in a tent by the bandstand signing my two books along with many other vendors with lots of food, drinks, beer, clothes, arts & crafts and jewelry. Live entertainment will be provided by Rhythm Method Band and DJ Mike Jones. Bring your folding chair and enjoy. Kelly Carter of the Liberty Road Business Association is in charge. This is also free and open to the public.
Well, my dear friends, I got to go, I am out of space. I will see you somewhere.
Remember if you need me, call me at 410-833-9474 or email me at rosapryor@ aol.com. UNTIL THE NEXT TIME, I’M MUSICALLY YOURS.
