Happy Holidays from the Happy Lucky Combo. Thought you might enjoy this video. Thank you Larry Yates for passing it on.
The Ululating Mummies play on New Years Eve day at Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens for their New Years Eve Family Frolic. When we find out exactly when we play I'll let you know. It will be two sets between 2 and 5 PM. Also that night the garden lights will still be up if you want to make an evening of it.

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.

"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!

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".
