Hello everyone! I miss all of you. Shorty and I have been a little out of commission in the past few months, not able to get out there to jump up and down and do the James Brown with you. But slowly and surely, we are coming back out there to see your smiling faces in person, starting this weekend.
I first want to thank all of our fans and friends who called, sent prayers and those of you who sent cards and stopped by in person to check on us. God is so good! My “Boo-Boo’s” lung surgery was a success, and my spinal surgery has also been a success so far. We both must take it easy and move just a little slower for right now. I have so much to tell you. I am so excited that Baltimore is opening back up. I am talking about live entertainment. It is really busting loose in Baltimore. THANK GOD!
So put on your seat belt and let us start out with one of my favorite spots in Baltimore, the Caton Castle at 20 S. Caton Avenue. Beginning this weekend, Saturday, April 30th from 6p to 10p, the Paul Carr Quartet with vocalist Vanessa Rubin will perform. This promises to be a dynamite show, so check it out!
Honey Child, I am just getting started. Check this out! Ladies and gentlemen pull out your best after five and semi-formal outfit because you will need them for an evening of elegance at the American Legion #122, 4422 Painters Mill Road in Owings Mills, Maryland. Dance the evening away to music by Nu Band and New World Outreach Jazz Orchestra. It is BYOF and cash bar. For more information, call 410-963-8098.
Now, what about my frisky adopted daughter, Pamela Rene Leak? Many of you know her as Baltimore’s renowned comedian, host, promoter and top of the list Baltimore advocate for the less fortunate “Ms. Maybelle.” She is really showing off. She is not only having a “One Woman Show” soon (details to come next month), but she is being “roasted” by her dear friend “Tee-Shirt Brian” Hall and Lamont Hill at the Patapsco Arena, 3301 Annapolis Road, on Sunday, May 7th from 5p-9p. I don’t know what is on your calendar for this date, but I suggest that you add this one!
This year I promise you that you will not have to wonder where to take your mother, your wife, the mother of your children or your special loved one for this Mother’s Day Weekend. I have a couple of suggestions: a Pre-Mother’s Day Concert at the Chesapeake Arts Center, 194 Hammond Land and Ritchie Highway in Brooklyn Park, Maryland. This concert will feature Harold Melvin’s Blue Notes; Stylistic Revue with Van Field; Frank Washington, (former lead singer of the Spinners); Jr. Walker’s Allstars; and the Kevin Langford Band. The doors open at 6p; the show is from 7p-11p. For more information, call Paula Gee 410-718-1799 or 443-857-2771.
Now, if you prefer more of a church scene, check this out! There will be a “Pre-Mother’s Day Concert on Saturday, May 7th. Please contact Martine Charles, President, Chief Communications Officer, MARC Global Communications
