Happiness Happens at the Me&Thee Again
Booking a music venue can sometimes be challenging. Hell, what am I saying? It’s always challenging. A booking manager deals with a multitude of different personalities and situations on a regular basis. These are just a few that occurred this past season: a band of merry musicians coming from quite a distance got stuck in a massive traffic jam and couldn’t make it to the venue in time for a sound check; a pesky winter storm decided to be on and off again all day long on the day of a show which eventually caused us to cancel the show; and how about the time when the immigration services officials didn’t process some paperwork in time for a Canadian musician to come and play an opening set? Yeah, how about that time?
This is when fate or coincidence or what you have you came into play . . . and made some of our patrons deliriously happy.
What Do The Beatles Mean to Jody Moore, Emily Mure and KSB? at the Me&Thee May 21, 2016
Well, it’s like this. . . the day of the annual “All You Need is Love” concert is fast approaching and there’s only so much time to promote the show. I thought I’d save the best blog for last — the one that’s all Girl Power! Jody Moore is a dynamite singer and is a staple in the greater Boston and Cape Cod music scene. Either on stage or behind a video camera, she’s been there and she’s seen it all — or at least nearly all. That’s another blog for another day. Emily Mure hails from Roosevelt Island in NYC. She’s fairly new to Boston but is truly starting to make waves. Trust us. She’s the real deal. And moi. I put this blog together and wanted to share a few thoughts about one of my favorite bands of all time — The Beatles.
And don’t forget — the Eleventh Annual “All You Need is Love” is taking place at the me&thee in Marblehead, MA on Saturday, May 21 at 7:30. Click here for details. It’s an all-ages fun event. Proceeds go to sending musicians to local schools for workshops and concerts.
Now for our thoughts about The Beatles.
What Do The Beatles Mean to Jim Trick? at the Me&Thee May 21, 2016
Jim Trick describes how his siblings breathed new light and vision into his music hero choices as a young boy. He does so in his own inimitable Jim Trick-esque way. Jim mesmerized the “All You Need is Love” audience a couple of years ago. He walked in and told our surprised sound engineer that he didn’t need a sound check. The engineer shrugged didn’t understand because everyone always wants a sound check . . . but not Jim. When it came his turn to sing, we all understood why as Jim walked the length and breadth of the sanctuary and sang to each and every person there that night. It was magical.
Experience the Jim Trick magic at this year’s “All You Need is Love” benefit on Saturday, May 21 at the me&thee in Marblehead, MA. Doors at 7:00 p.m. Show begins at 7:30 p.m. Don’t miss it.
What Do The Beatles Mean to Eric Lee? at the Me&Thee May 21, 2016
Eric Lee is one helluva musician. When he’s not singing his own songs or playing in a bluegrass band or two, he’s often seen fiddlin’ about in the best violin kind of way ever. It’s hard to believe that I’ve known Eric since he was a teen and ambled up the hill at Falcon Ridge to jam and ended up on the main stage that weekend as a member of The Strangelings (Pete and Maura Kennedy, Hungrytown — Rebecca Hall and Ken Anderson, Chris Thompson Lively, and Cheryl Prashker). That was 2007 — fast forward to 2016 and Eric has played everywhere, including China. This is Eric’s second appearance as part of the “All You Need is Love” benefit. Eric gave an outstanding fiddle workshop to Marblehead High school students several years ago.
This year’s Beatles Benefit is on Saturday, May 21 at 7:30 p.m. at the me&thee in Marblehead, MA.
What Do The Beatles Mean to Tony Toledo? at the Me&Thee May 21, 2016
Tony Toledo spins stories as a professional storyteller. He creates all kinds of tall tales for his audiences and loves to delight children and adults alike. He discovered the worlds of storytelling and folk music when he moved to Massachusetts in 1987. Tony is an award-winning storyteller and a long-time volunteer at the me&thee. One of his favorite events of the year is the “All You Need is Love” Beatles Benefit because he gets to invent outrageous stories about the Fab Four and present special coins to the musicians.
This year’s benefit takes place on Saturday, May 21 at 7:30 at the me&thee in Marblehead, MA. Proceeds from this show go to sending independent musicians into local schools for workshops and concerts. Since Tony spend a lot of time in classrooms himself, he appreciates the mission of this benefit.
