Hello Sailor! A Bawdy Song Sing Along

Adults only - 18 and older
For Rock Hall Pirates & Wenches Fantasy Weekend

Saturday, August 8, 2015 at 8:00 p.m.

only $20

Come-all-ye seamen, wenches, lusty laddies and ladies! It’s baa-ack! Just in time for Rock Hall's Pirates & Wenches Fantasy Weekend, we bring you (once again by popular demand) “Hello Sailor! A Bawdy Song Sing-Along,” a raucous romp through centuries of dirty ditties. Come in good voice (or just a loud one) and join in with master balladeers Jennifer Cutting, Steve Winick, Riki Schneyer and Craig Williams on the choruses of naughty songs that have come down to us through the centuries from medieval brothels, pubs, tall ships, British music halls, armies, navies, schoolyards, and wherever such songs are sung. This will be an ample show of shameless songs that have propelled innocent sailors to their moral doom from time immemorial. The group (which contains an ethnomusicologist, a folklorist, a traditional singer and a member of Pyrates Royale) has conducted research into dusty archives of depravity and delight that will ensure that this isn't just any old bawdy songs show - you're bound to hear refreshingly raunchy songs you've never heard before and be entertained in the time-honored tradition of gathering to raise our voices in song. No experience necessary but bring your sense of humor. Must be age 18 or older.

The Daryl Davis Band

A Tribute to Pinetop Perkins

Saturday, August 15, 2015 at 8:00 p.m.

only $20

In 1985, the legendary boogie woogie pioneer Pinetop Perkins selected Daryl Davis to succeed him in the piano and vocal slot of the Muddy Waters Legendary Blues Band. Daryl also played Chuck Berry’s band as did Perkins. Now Daryl brings his band to the Mainstay to pay tribute to Perkins, one of the last great Mississippi bluesmen who began playing blues in the late 1920s, and was widely regarded as one of the best – and certainly most enduring – blues pianists. Perkins forged a style that has influenced three generations of piano players, and continues to be the yardstick by which great blues pianists are measured. Daryl Davis is a vocalist and keyboardist extraordinaire and a huge favorite with Mainstay audiences. Davis was born in Chicago, electric blues capital of the world, received a Bachelors in Music from Howard University in jazz and then went to work with such artists as Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley’s Jordanaires, Jerry Lee Lewis, The Platters, The Drifters, The Coasters, Bo Diddley, Percy Sledge, and Sam Moore (of Sam & Dave), to name a few. The great boogie woogie and blues pianists Pinetop Perkins and Johnnie Johnson both praised Davis’s authenticity playing a style that was popular 20 years before he was born. This will an unforgettable evening of blues and rockin’ boogie and is sure to sell out so make your reservations now!
