Puppy Stew

Here’s an antique tobacco card by Hassan Cigarette Co. from 1910, now 105 years old and in excellent condition. Apparently, the noble red man regarded puppies as a delicacy. I love my dogs, but they’re not on the menu!

Blues at Ronnies Hog Heaven

Here is Coastal Fury doing a really great version of “Can’t You See” followed by “Sweet Home Chicago” at Ronnie’s Hog Heaven in Dickinson. The singer is Shea Marie Smith an old friend of mine who just gets better and better. She’s really one of the best blues singers around, and this is coming from a Tracy Conover fan.
Another great local band, SixGun Keys will be playing at Ronnie’s on April 18th at 9pm, no cover, and remember:
If you make me laugh I will buy you a beer!

Pee Wee Bowen at Diamond Jim’s

The Pee Wee Bowen band will be playing next Saturday 4/19 at Diamond Jims in Texas City. For those who don’t know jack about Pee Wee, here are a few tidbits:
He was invited to join a young music group called The Beach Boys back in 1963, but didn’t want to leave Texas. Since then, he has made a name for himself as a blues/jazz/rock/country/soul singer and has been one of the top entertainers in the region for many years. If you like Elvis, Motown, Little Richard, Roy Orbison, Sinatra, and other classic sounds with a delicious southeast Texas flavor, this guy and his band of professionals are the cream of the crop.
