Rambling Rose: Spring Has Sprung! Let's Have Some Fun!

Hello everyone, I hope everything is good with you. If not, just keep the faith. I have a few interesting things coming up to get you in the mood for the wonderful weather we are having. Yes, my friend, spring is here, so let’s enjoy and have some fun. Get out of the house and stop moping around, especially my seniors. Life is too short to sit around doing absolutely nothing but going from a sofa to bed and wining woe is me!

I will be a little out of commission for this week because my husband, my Boo-Boo, Shorty had his left knee replacement on Tuesday, April 16th so I will be home taking care of him. So keep us in your prayers.

So let’s get started on some great events coming up.


Joe Chambers & Dennis Chambers Quartet will perform on Friday, April 26 at the An die Musik LIVE, located 409 N. Charles Street in Baltimore with Joe on vibes/drums and Dennis chambers on drums, Allyn Johnson on piano and Herman Burney on bass. Showtime is at 8 p.m. It is sure to be a percussion extravaganza and a jazz party to me. For more information, call 410-385-2638

Marva D is having her “Good Friday Fish Fry Party” on April 19 from 8 p.m. to 12 a.m. at the VFW Hall, 8123 Harford Road serving fried fish, with sides; it is BYOB with free set-ups and beer. For more information, call 410-599-9159.

“Jazzy Tarsha” is doing her thing again, but this time she is at the Belmont Restaurant and Lounge, located 1800 Belmont Avenue in Windsor Mill every Tuesday night with live entertainment from 5-11 p.m. On Tuesday, April 23 my group from out of Washington, DC “Signature Live!” will be performing. Please check her Tuesday Night out, it is awesome.

My friend, Walt Carr, the son of Walter Carr, Sr. of the “Nightlifer Magazine” called to inform me that Howard County MSU Alumni’s “Spring Day Party” Caribbean Style Cabaret is Saturday, April 27 from 12 noon until 4 p.m. at the Kahler Hall in Columbia, Maryland. It is BYOB with free set-ups & vendors. What a wonderful day time event.

Speaking about Easter, The Forum Caterers, 4210 Primrose Avenue in Baltimore is having their Easter Sunday Buffet on Sunday, April 21 from 3-6 p.m. Give Nikita a call at 410-358-1101. I have been several times and HONEY CHILD! The buffet they serve is mind blowing! So after church, if you do not want to cook and planning to go out for dinner, this is the place.


Anderson Ward, renowned photographer and race car driver has made it to the final round in the Mitsubishi vs. Subaru Bracket Class at Street Wars in Cecil County Drag Way as a winner. Congrats my friend.

Every Saturday from noon until 2 p.m. Lexington Market has concerts with live entertainment with local bands in the Market’s Arcade stage. It is open to the public and it is free.

Look my friends, I told you about this place a couple of months ago called "CURED/8th & 21st", I know it has a wired name, but who am I to judge. All I can say is that two of my favorite musicians are playing there every Sunday including this Sunday, April 21. It is a wonderful venue for exquisite dining, incredible cocktails and a wonderful and fitting variety of live music performances including Jeff Wilson on piano and Terry Battle on bass from 5-8 p.m. The venue is located at 10980 Grantchester Way in Columbia, Maryland next to Merriweather Post Pavillion. If you are familiar with the group called "Jumpstreet" than you know these guys. They play quite the variety of music as they do with their whole band. Just check it out, you won't be sorry. Write me and tell me what you think.

So my friends enjoy your weekend and check out the photos on my page with more information on what is going on. I have to go now. I am out of space, but 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.
