Loaf of Bread
Sliced bread ain’t that great
Certainly not the best thing I ever ate
Please allow me to elucidate
I know somethin’ better!
When she walks in the room I turn to butter
Better than just about anything ever
No loaf of bread could come near looking better
Especially when she’s in her white sweater
So she’s out in the sun and she’s perfectly toasted
And if I had some jelly and some coffee I roasted
We could clean up the cupboards and toss out the rotted
And we could run on the beach ’till we’re totally wasted Continue reading “Loaf of Bread”
A Cover of a Jerry Garcia song, which should also be familiar to fans of the Grateful Dead. It’s always been one of my favorite Garcia tunes, Mission in the Rain, from 1976’s “Reflections” from the Jerry Garcia Band.
As performed by yours truly … Continue reading “Mission in the Rain (Music Video), Mark Urso (with EZ chords for musicians)”

Triple Play! Three New Music Videos!
A great variety of new 2021 videos for you today! Last night the popular Franklin Brothers Band from New London, CT mixed up some originals, new material and classic pop covers, bringing a very entertaining, well done show to Pawcatuck, CT’s Phoenix nightclub. I’ll have more footage with some nice camera flyarounds in the next few days from this show. For now, here’s a Franklin Brothers original, 100 Days, 100 Nights, featuring Nichelle Rollins on lead vocals, to start today’s musical feast! Continue reading “Triple Play Sunday!

Yes, Sugar’s playing tomorrow (Friday). Yes, I’m going!
It’s a guaranteed ball! People of all shapes and sizes! Today I ran into this video (below) which demonstrates dancing only gets better, the older you get! It takes years to get the steps down, which is why dancing is best with two, because you’ll need a Shirley Temple to properly Bojangles! Continue reading “Old Movie Stars Dance to Uptown Funk”
Simple Twist of Fate (Bob Dylan), covered by Mark Urso. G&L Bluesboy tele-style guitar, Boss VE-8 Acoustic Singer, Shure Continue reading “Simple Twist of Fate, Mark Urso”
Music Video Overload
Another onslaught of fun! You asked for it!
Well, indirectly, by being a viewer of my blog. It’s going to continue to happen, as well. We’re just getting started! Today’s features include three new videos prepped and published during the recent dark ages, during an Internet outage at the studio.
First, our favorite new kids on the block, who’ve been around forever … the 20th-Century Kids, an outstanding band from eastern CT. Continue reading “20th C. Kids, Bobby Christina, Easton Corbin”
Music Video Time!
The power’s back on, and Internet back up, and we have some catching up to do! First up, Roomful of Blues live on the beach!
This one features Rhode Island native Chris Vachon Continue reading “New Videos, Roomful, Sugar, Chris Leigh”
Dogs know more than we do. It’s not very important, most of the stuff they know, but sometimes dogs really do have a better way. And not just dogs, but all non-human critters, coyotes to whales to bluebirds and slippery snakes. They all co-exist without thinking too much, and that can make them far superior to humans in many ways.
For example, dogs don’t EVER fuss about skin color.
It’s late again. This happens every day. And I have some thoughts, which I shared on Quora. As smart as I think I am, though, I just gave all the credit for this one to a German Shepherd who’s got all of us bested.
Can you actually prove that “race” is not real because it is allegedly a social construct, which has no factual basis in science?
I didn’t ask the question, but it caught my eye. Continue reading “Ask a Dog”
Country Music Video – Chris Bandi
Washington County Fair, Richmond, RI
Saturday, August 14, 2021 Continue reading “Chris Bandi – Full Show”
Country star Chris Bandi graced the stage Saturday night at the Washington County Fair in Richmond, Rhode Island. He brought an impressively small band and made some impressively big sounds! Bandi even explained to the crowd his usual guitarist got COVID so this guitarist was a stand-in who learned the songs in a week! With only himself (vocal, guitar) and a guitarist and drummer (no bass), Bandi’s sound was actually an improvement over many much larger bands I’ve heard! (Let’s not mention the night before, when Easton Corbin made the fair audience wait a full 1-1/2 hours before taking the stage!)
Here’s Bandi having fun with an old Skynyrd track about Alabama! Continue reading “Chris Bandi – Sweet Home Alabama Mashup (Washington County Fair, RI, 2021)”
It’s late. I just saw Chris Bandi at the Washington County Fair in Richmond, RI. It was the Saturday night show, but not attended as well as Friday night with Easton Corbin. Nevertheless, it was a lesser-known talent and a better show!
More on the fabulous Bandi three-piece country rock ensemble coming up. Today, to keep your interest at a fair peak, I’ll shuffle you over to the rides section, where the never-a-good-idea “Zipper” battles side by side against the “Polar Express” for the proud honor of being the strangest idea humans have ever come up with. The screaming is all part of the atmosphere! This video was taken for the last Zipper plunge of the night. HOLD ON! Continue reading “I Dare You! Introducing The Zipper 2021 – Washington County Agricultural Fair, Friday, Aug. 13, 2021, Richmond, Rhode Island”
Country music star Easton Corbin thrilled a big crowd Friday night at the Washington County Fair in Richmond, RI. The outdoor show on the featured main stage, the same stage where legends like Tricia Yearwood have performed, was delayed for an hour-and-a-half with no explanation, but the crowd was settled in, and appreciative!
