New Show.....Billy Ray Reynolds

On Sat, Aug 26 BILLY RAY & LORA REYNOLDS will visit us at the Red Dragon. Don't know the name? Does WAYLON JENNINGS ring a bell? How about the ALLMAN BROTHERS? Billy Ray spent 12 years with Waylon and put in some time with the Allman's, too. All the while he was a songwriter of his own. With tunes covered by JOHNNY CASH, TOMPALL GLASER, DICKEY BETTS, TANYA TUCKER, JOHNNY RODRIGUEZ & IAN TYSON, Billy Ray is "old school" in the very best way. Billy Ray will be joined by his wife Lora as they are taking a bit of time to travel our way and visit their friends CLAY PARKER & JODI JAMES. C & J will open the show of course. Wanna join us for an old school good time? Reg seats are $20, VIPs are $30 and the direct link is
billyraydragon.brownpapertickets.com

BTW, if the face looks familiar, Billy Ray has spent a little time playing villains in a few movies!

On Oct 26 we will be hosting the great RODNEY CROWELL (full band). Our show sold out quickly, but a few folks let their hearts get ahead of their family calendar. I can't really re-open the ticket window, as I fear we would be overbooked in a matter of minutes. We are still full on VIPs, but if you would like regular seats, drop me a note. They are $100 each.....first come, first serve. This may be the last chance to score seats for this show. Please plan on sending a check if you do get seats.


On Nov 8 we host CHRIS HILLMAN/HERB PEDERSEN/JOHN JORGENSEN. We are nearing a sellout on VIP seats ( a fair number of reg seats remain). Reg seats are $100, VIPs are $110. This is a final chance to catch Chris, as he is retiring from the road. That is the reason that instrumental legend JOHN JORGENSEN is joining the tour. This one will be legendary. Rez and payment link is:

Thanks, Y'all....... Chris Maxwell cmaxwell@premier.net

NASHVILLE/NEW ORLEANS CONNECTION

Les Kerr has a new blog about the musical connection between Nashville and New Orleans. From Louis Armstrong’s collaboration with Jimmie Rodgers to Del McCoury playing with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, the connection continues at:

http://leskerr.wordpress.com/2013/07/12/the-nashville-new-orleans-musical-connection/

======================================================

"Though it's impossible to pinpoint a particular moment when immigrants began inventing American music, a dramatic turning point surely occurred in 1804, the year a young nation made the Louisiana Purchase. President Thomas Jefferson sought to buy from the French just the city of New Orleans, because of its crucial value as a port. But a cash-strapped Napoleon sold the entire, still-uncharted Louisiana Territory for $15 million — roughly 4 cents an acre.  In a single stroke, America became a thrilling, noisy eruption of sound."

YOU DON'T HAVE TO BREATHE SECONDHAND SMOKE AT WORK.  WHY SHOULD I?
 
"I have been affected by secondhand smoke.  I remember one night I was playing in a club and I went to hit a high note and I almost blacked out on stage.  I had to hold the microphone to keep from falling down. There was so much smoke in the place that it had a negative impact on my singing."
--Deacon John

QUAKER BENEDICTION

When the song of the angel is stilled,
When the star in the sky is gone,
When the kings and princes are home,
When the shepherds are back with their flocks,
The work of Christmas begins:
   To find the lost,
   To heal the broken,
   To feed the hungry,
   To release the prisoner,
   To rebuild the nations,
   To bring peace among brothers,
   To make music in the heart.
