Do you like the music of the 50s, 60s and 70s? I should say, do you love it? Love it in fact, so much, that it has become an addiction? How can you tell? Well, has your vinyl collection become such a clutter that you find yourself tripping over it wherever you take a step? Do you find yourself constantly flipping channels on your car radio to find that oldies but goodies station? Or preferring reruns on TV Land of The Partridge Family or Donnie and Marie over American Idol, Glee or Smash? Sounds to me like you're hooked. You need to come to a BGA Meeting - only one left - on Sunday May 27 at 2 pm at Peter Mac's Supper Club inside the French Market Place on Santa Monica Blvd in WeHo. FYI, BGA stands for Bubble Gums Anonymous with the slogan The more you pop, the better it gets. It's all part and parcel of a nifty little show called Chew On This which has in spades the genre of music that any bubble gum addict could ever possibly wish for.
Gilmore Rizzo is the divine lead singer with dreamy backups the "Gum-belles" Pat Whiteman
, Barbara Shane and Darci Monet. They all have their confession time, their familiar stories - you'll surely sympathize - and will welcome you to the club with such favorites as "Yummy, Yummy, Yummy", "C' Mon Get Happy", "Knock Three Times", "Venus", "Rubber Ball", "Young Love", "Puppy Love", "I Think We're Alone Now", "Heartbeat", "Who's Sorry Now?", "Honey, Honey", "Sugartown" and a bevy of other hand-clapping, toe-tapping hits of the past.
If you loved Donnie and Marie Osmond
, Susan Dey
, Bobby Sher
man, Connie Francis
, Paul Peters
, Neil Sedaka
, David Cassidy
, then this show's for you. If you don't recognize most of these names, you're in big trouble. You must be stuck in a time warp of another century and are in dire need of some musical culture, so run, don't walk to the Peter Mac
Supper Club Sunday Mary 27 for the glorious sounds of Gilmore Rizzo and Gals in Chew On This
with cool direction from DJ Schaefer - groovy, man, groovy! - and super rad musical accompaniment by BRyan Miller on piano and Michael Joseph James on drums. You'll have a blast!!
