Rambling Rose: Baltimore Musicians Do Their Thing!

Hello everyone, I hope everyone is well. I have so much to tell you and some good and some not so good. I will start off with the good things first.

2015 recipients of Rosa Pryor Music Scholarship Fund, young saxophonists, Ebban Dorsey and her brother Ephraim opened the Keystone Korner Night Club”s first “Jam Session.” They will open every Tuesday night at 9 p.m.

I am so excited and so proud of two of my little musical children, the Dorsey siblings, a brother and sister team, Ebban and Ephraim Dorsey, who were 11 and 12 years old when they became the first and second place winners of the 2015 Rosa Pryor Music Scholarship Fund. Today they are the hottest, most talked about saxophonists and musicians on the East Coast. Many of our veteran musicians have taken these two teen musicians under their wing and have opened the door for them to become national musicians at their young age. These two babies, will open the “First Jam Session” at the Keystone Korner Night Club located 1350 Lancaster Street in Baltimore. This “Jam Session” is held every Tuesday night at 9 p.m. I will see you there!

“Liberty Live Outdoor Concert” is jumping up and down doing the “James Brown” and is back with some outstanding line-ups every Friday evening from 6 p.m.-9 p.m. located 4111 Deer Park Road on the DreamLife Ministries side parking lot in Randallstown, Maryland.

Another note in sadness is my dear good friend, one of my former artist I managed for over 10 years, and Baltimore’s own renowned entertainer vocalist “Tiny Tim” Harris (Timothy Harris) is in the hospital and has been in there now for a few weeks. He needs your prayers. He is in Mercy Hospital on St. Paul Street in Room 1121. Send cards, visit and let him know you care.

On a final note, Shorty and I attended the “DipNic Festival last Saturday held at its new location, “Pearlstone Center in Reisterstown, Marylandand. It was awesome and was filled with old and new patrons, the music was great, the sound of dancing music was heard all over the park. People came from all over Maryland and the Washington, DC area with their canopy tents, grills, folding chairs, bathing suits and umbrella tables and had a ball. It was really lovely and the weather was perfect. Well done Charles Faison, Carlos Hutchins, Millie Battle, Pat Coursar and Millie Battle who are part of the committee that helped to make this event a success. See you all next year same time, same place.

Wendel Patrick Quartet performs at the BMA (Baltimore Museum of Art) on Saturday, July 27, 7 p.m. in the Sculpture Garden with his band located 10 Art Museum Drive at North Charles & 31st Street.

Roots Lounge still hanging on with my girl Ronnie Jackson, the owner (who seems as though she has been there for a hundred years), located 2148 Vine Street on the corner of Smallwood Street is having their annual "Christmas in July Party" on Monday, July 29 starting at 5 p.m. You don't want to miss this. A lot of fun, party, music, food and meeting old friends from back in the day.
