Kelly Clinton features Lenny Lopez this Sunday

Email I just got moments ago from Kelly Clinton:
Hi Bobby,

Lenny Lopez is my celebrity spotlight guest this Sunday night at 8:00 p.m. Show finishes about 9:15 -- unless he wants to play longer. Can you help spread the word to encourage reservations?

Thanks. I don't think people know he's coming.
Done, Kelly. (The Bootlegger is located here, BTW.) Call 736-4939 to reserve a table for Lenny's show.


Went over to Michael Soli's "Unplugged" singer/songwriter gig at the House of Blues tonight (nice venue), then dropped in at the Casbah Lounge to see Kelly. The very nice lineup is Ron Crews on tubs, Eddie DiMarino on bass, Tommy Alvarado on saxes and percussion, Dave Hart on guitar & harp, and Dave Kowalski on keys. Kelly Clinton is as sweet as can be, and is a fine singer and entertainer. Shot a just few pics, couldn't stay long.


This is the kid who sent UNLV home from their glorious Big Dance run to The Sweet Sixteen:

EIGHT 3's, most of 'em via dead-run movin' left-or-right pull-up jumpers from Downtown. Amazing. He's just 5'6" and a friggin' Freshman! One that no other Div I school wanted. Kid could step up with Iverson, I swear. Fast as lightning, blow right by ya, or if you lay back and give him any slack, he just rains on you from beyond the arc.

Props to our Runnin' Rebels for a great season. You done yourselves proud.

Since her new husband is so old, Lou Anne decides that after their wedding she and Wally should have separate bedrooms, because she is concerned that her new but aged husband may overexert himself if they spend the entire night together.

After the wedding festivities Lou Anne prepares herself for bed and the expected "knock" on the door. Sure enough the knock comes, the door opens and there is Wally, her 85 year old groom, ready for action.

They unite as one. All goes well, Wally takes leave of his bride, and she prepares to go to sleep.

After a few minutes, Lou Anne hears another knock on her bedroom door, and it's Wally. Again he is ready for more "action."

Somewhat surprised, Lou Anne consents for more coupling. When the newlyweds are done, Wally kisses his bride, bids her a fond "goodnight" and leaves

She is set to go to sleep again, but, aha you guessed it -- Wally is back again, rapping on the door, and is as fresh as a 25-year-old, ready for more "action." And, once again they enjoy each other.

But as Wally gets set to leave again, his young bride says to him, "I am thoroughly impressed that at your age you can perform so well and so often. I have been with guys less than a third of your age who were only good once. You are truly a great lover, Wally."

Wally, somewhat embarrassed, turns to Lou Anne and says:

"You mean I was here already?"

The moral of the story: Senior moments have their advantages.

LOL! Don't forget, Jazz jam tomorrow night at Sonny's (see prior post) -- after the Bootlegger show featuring Lenny Lopez.


We got a lot goin' on tonight. Lenny Lopez Guest shot at Bootlegger (top of this post), Kelly finishing up this week's stint at the Sahara, Jazz jam at Sonny's (Rob Mader subbing for Tommy), and Ronnie Foster is back and sent this email out:

Hey Folks,

Well if last Sunday was any indicator I think everyone likes the new spot. A incredible turnout for the first Sunday. The food is kick'n! So come on out and enjoy. We had a lot of great musicians stop by and they threw it down.

MJ's Bar & Grill, 3417 S. Jones between Spring Mtn. & Desert Inn (702-364-1144) right in the middle of the big shopping center. We start at 8 pm, till 11 pm every Sunday starting this Sunday.

It is owned by 2 lovely young ladies Monica and Amanda who have done an incredible job of remodeling the place some of you might have know it when it was the Boston or Sultan's Table.

Look forward to seeing you.

- Ronnie Foster

I love it when he uses that photo montage. I did that for him. Shot those pics one night at The Artisan and merged 'em and threw that header on there.

I guess I'm gonna be makin' the rounds tonight.

Then, don't forget, Santa Fe returns to The Palms tomorrow night -- and, a week from Monday we will have the incredible guest appearance of Spyro Gyra's Tom Schuman!
