A Video, an Auction, and Dueling Accordions



Dave arranged the Happy Lucky Combo song, Yemaya, for 150 music students from Midlothian Middle School and James River High School. See video above.

The HaPpY LuCkY CoMbO is back at O'Toole's this Wednesday, November 11th, from 8:00 until 10:30 PM. Our guest this week will be accordionista Bob Jacobs (photo right). Dueling Accordions!

Last week we had a delicious time "cooking with Carter" (photo right) and, as if on cue, Nicholas Lewis (photo right) came by and offered up dessert. And it was yummy! I went by O'Toole's today and the cook wants more! (for real)

As of the publishing of this blog, I can only say that it is rumored, that this week we will have a visit from Nick. 

Upcoming events include a Thanksgiving Eve airing of the Virginia Arts and Letters Live performance, of which we were a part, and a Dec. 12 performance at Ellwoods Coffee. And the inevetable release (escape?) of our CD.

Also, Pippin is perorming with And the Wiremen on Thursday November 12, 8:30 PM @ Balliceaux, 203 N. Lombardy St. ( the old Bogarts). Pippin's been working hard in preparation and says it's been challenging learning the new rhythyms he describes as Brazilian-like. Local musician Paul Watson is a member of this group that is based in NYC.

We've volunteered to be part of the Patrick Henry Charter School auction by offering to have our musical services put up for bid. This is an on-line auction. Hint, we're perfect for a holiday party.

Musicircus: a "near death experience"?

Musicircus

"I saw shadowy figures in a long tunnel or hall, and then light, and the music of The HaPpY LucKy CoMbO". 
Harry Kollatz, Flaneur
    
Thank you to everyone who came out to the chaotic and cacaphonous Musicircus. I'm sure everyones experience was different. For us it was part fun, and part enlightening near death experience. Can't wait till next year! (click HERE for photos by Dean Christesen)

The Happy Lucky Combo is back home at O'Toole's this Wednesday, October 28, 8 - 10:30 PM. This week we have special guest Carter Blough (photo upper right) on the bass fiddle!
The way it's been working out the trio plays a set and then we're joined by others. Last week it was Emily Avesian (painting right), baritone, and Jeff Adams (photo right), tenor. I can't wait to see who and what happens this week. See you there!

Our friend John Winn will have his composition "The More Things Change" debuted by  the Oberon String Quartet on Tuesday, October 27, 7:30 PM @ St. Christopher's School Upper School Chapel, 711 St. Christophers Rd.

Musicircus



What is a photo of John Cage doing on our blog? Let me explain.

This year The Happy Lucky Combo will be performing as part of our local Musicircus. Musicircus is a performance concept originated by John Cage. 

He explained it this way:

"The idea of this composition is nothing more than an invitation to a number of musicians, who perform simultaneously anything or in any way they desire."

Brian Jones is the organizer and is bringing together a multitude (around 60) of musicians. It happens this Thursday, Oct. 22, from 9:30 until 10:00 PM at The Visual Arts Center. The performance is free and open to the public.

Thank you to everyone who came out last week to O'Toole's. Emily brought her friend Jeff Adams, "the demon of beat street", to sit in (photo left). We hope to have Jeff back soon.

And Happy 30th Anniversary to Rostov's Coffee and Tea! That was a great party and the best smellin' gig we've been on.

For your AMUSEMENT: Cage-Water Walk 

See you next Wed. at O'Toole's!

       HLC @ Ellwoods Coffee  Photo: Charles Sugg

It's sad to have the Folk Festival come to an end, but The Happy Lucky Combo will be tapping the music keg @ O'Toole's this week, Wednesday, October 14, from 8 till 10:30 PM. 

Thank you to everyone who came out last time at O'Toole's. It was a  wonderfully "spirited" carnivalesque crowd. Seemed like everyone won a prize. 
Bob Jacobs, the accordion player from Gypsy Roots sat in with us, and he was great. Emily Avesian also came by with her baritone to help fill out the Happy Lucky "big town  sound". 

And  thank you to the sophisticated Cafe crowd who came to hear us at Ellwoods Coffee. We've been invited back and will let you know more.

People are requesting more button accordion songs. We've added one more for this week. It's called "Beer".

And what a time we all at had the Richmond Folk Festival! Thanks to those who came by to see Pippin and I perform with The Richmond Indigenous Gourd Orchestra at the "Southside Stage".

And thank you  Venture Richmond and all the volunteers! The party's over... until Wednesday.

Accordions Must Predominate

A while back Pippin and I made a vow to play with people who are better than we are. So continuing in that spirit, Bob Jacobs (photo above) will join us this Wednesday at O'Toole's.  Bob plays locally with Gypsy Roots and has had a long and fruitful accordion career.  My favorite story is when he played for Lawrence Welk at a book signing.

The Happy Lucky Combo will also be playing at Ellwoods Coffee this Saturday, October 3. This is our first gig there, so we hope a lot of friends from the North side of the River will come by. Admission is free. It is smoke free and beer and wine are served. We play from 7:00 until 9:00 PM.

Monkeys and Crickets


The Happy Lucky Combo had a great time at O'Toole's last week celebrating with Beth Standford and friends.  Happy Birthday Beth. As you can see Monkey had a great time. The "Chess Guys" were out in force and shared with everyone the sour cream and onion flavored crickets they won from "The Cart of Good Fortune". 

The highlight of the evening was when Roger Carroll (photo right) sat in with The Happy Lucky Combo and played a tango, a ballad, and a blues. Although, this may have been surpassed by the chorus line at the end of the show. Truly a  Southside Revue. 

See y'all this Wednesday.  Emily Avesian (photo right) is going to bring her baritone sax!

WARNING: Next week Richard Grossman will be having his NCAA pool party at O'Toole's beginning at 6:30 PM.

As the weather warms The Happy Lucky Combo thinks again about busking on the street. 

We are  preparing for the big show @ The Empire with Irene Ziegler, Carl Kassel and a cast of stars. And to think it was only last summer we were busking in front of The Empire.
