Ramblin’ Rose:More daylight. More live music!


Hello everyone, Daylight Savings Time has begun. It gives us more time to hang out, to hear live entertainment, especially given that the weather been very strange in a good way. We want to

tell you about some fun places to go. So follow my Rose-mobile and let’s hit the road.

Now depending on what you are interested in, we can start with the Griots Circle of Maryland, who are the sponsors of a storytelling event to celebrate Women’s History Month, entitled “The

Mothers of the Movement” on Sunday, March 26 from 2 to 3 p.m. Mannnnnnn! I have no idea why it is only for an hour but it is going to be at the Hampton National Historic site located in Towson, so check this out! The Griots will present portrayals of Billie Holiday, Mahalia Jackson, Mother Mary Lange, Zora Neal Hurston and Maya Angelou through

word and song. The presentation will be held in the Orangery. It is free and open to the public. For more information, call 410-788-3555 or email at baltimoregriot@hotmail.com.

Next, we are going to hang out at Magooby’s located 9603 Deereco Rd., in Timonium, on Sunday, March 26 to check out some more live entertainment with MarvaD. We are going to see Stan

“The Man” Hampton doing a tribute show to Teddy Pendergrass and a special performance by Douglass High Alumni Jazz Band and my adopted daughter, Ms. Maybelle, will host this event. I already have my tickets, so call MarvaD and get yours at 410-599-9159.

Okay, I am going to take you to west Baltimore to the 2100 block of Edmondson Avenue. Yes! I am talking about the Gentle 10 Lounge, which is under new management. Tim White, the owner, is a nice guy. Shorty and I stopped by there on Monday afternoon at the invitation of Carl Beasley, former manager of the Poet’s Athletic Club on East North Avenue. He told me about the dynamite happy hour he goes to every Monday starting at 1 p.m., which is a good time of day for me. The starmaid, Debbie, serves great drinks. There’s a dinner buffet for you to feed the alcohol. By the way, all drinks are under $6. With some old jazz and oldies playing on the jukebox, meeting and greeting some old

friends, honey child, we had a ball! So I tell you what, meet me there next Monday, I promise you that you will have a great time. Tell Debbie, I sent you.

I have got to go now, I’m parking the Rose-mobile so if you need me, call me at 410-833-9474 or email me at rosapryor@aol.com. UNTIL THE NEXT TIME, I’M MUSICALLY YOURS.
