MR. MAX'S MESSAGE – August 2008
IN THE WORKS
right, Sgt. Maxwell's Peace Chorus has been in the studio with Mr. Curt
at the board making magic with "Children of America" (a plea to the
children to reject the armed forces), "Military Men" (A Monty
Python-like approach to the men who follow orders), and "5 Mo Daze"
(what happens to some enlisted men after they've counted down their
final five days of service). You'll be able to hear the songs
soon—maybe right now on…
Caravan is a group of singer/songwriters that play separately and
together during each show. Members include Sal Baglio, Mr. Curt
Ensemble, Bird Mancini, Jon Macey & Steve Gilligan, Glenn Williams,
and me (Sgt. Maxwell). We also accommodate special guests like Ramona
Silver and Michael Bloom. Here's where the Caravan is rolling in
August-Friday, Aug. 1, at Monet's Garden in Beverly; Saturday, Aug. 2,
at the Roslindale Arts Alliance Festival; Friday, Aug. 8, at Perks
Coffeehouse in Norwood; Monday, Aug. 11, on BNN-TV It's All About Arts;
and Saturday Aug. 23, at 80 Border St. Cultural Center in East Boston.
Hope you can make it to one of these shows.
My old band from high school (1969) will be performing on August 2 at the Roslindale Arts Alliance Festival (99 Belgrade Ave, Roslindale). And we may also be repeating the magical night we had at Che's Lounge on the Vineyard (Vineyard Haven (38 Main Street). Mr. Timothy Charles Duane is a funny but amazing little three-piece band (guitar, uke, clarinet, and all of us harmonize) that plays music that sounds like it could have been written in the '40s. http://www.myspace.com/timothycharlesduane
OTHER AUGUST ACTIVITIES
I'll be playing softball every Saturday morning at 11:15am at the field on the Cambridge side of the Charles River at the B.U. Bridge. The league is called Saturday Morning Softball No Matter What-if it's stormin', we'll still be playin'.
I'll also be hitting Front Beach in Rockport-my summer home away from home. Don't call or email me about the Noise ‘til about mid-month.
