I doubt I will make it, mostly because Terry works until 8.
I had been meaning to update my long Marcia Ball story about Rick Koster’s distinguishing between Ball, Angela Strehli and Tracey Nelson, something about which one is cheerleader versus student body president.
I actually just rang Bob Brown’s number to no avail — so to speak –seized by the notion of bringing the four-member group, or four-headed group to the 650.
Bob Brown is Huey Lewis’ manager and owns Rancho Nicasio, where Terry and I recently caught up with Jerry Hannan, and had some fine victuals. He is allegedly married to Strehli. It also says that Morty Wiggins an O.G. in the SF music scene is co-managing and booking the group.
I recall chatting with a Bob Brown lieutenant when they managed Box Set who would appear here.
There is a cluster of Blues Broads dates in July and then again in November, to maybe riff around. I’ve been getting ideas about being a promoter or manager again if not actually drawing any water. If Plastic Alto is a fictitious version of Palo Alto, all these ideas actually happen there. The other two members are named Sampson and Morrison. I assume you have to cluster the shows since some of them fly in, versus being Texas-imports like Strehli and Nelson.
edit to add: There’s also a Led Kaapana show in Palo Alto on Sunday. Rich Corny was tres kind enough to snap me and send me this info capture.
girl of the Austin blues scene and Strehli its homecoming queen, then Marcia Ball was surely its student council president and head cheerleader.
