The second Thursday of the month and a mile of snow on the ground…It can mean only one thing: Hotpants! You will shake; you will shimmy; you will shing-a-ling. Be sure to check out the 45 by former NFL great Rosie Grier.
Our RSST run-up to Skalentine’s Day has Tommy McCook introducing the night’s proceedings with his rocksteady take on The World Needs Love,
a song called Sock It To Me Baby by no less than The Valentines(!) a Sherwoodian left-turn detour into the love of video game soundtracks (Harry Hosono’s arrangement of Galaga), and a back-on-track SEVEN Lollipops in a row, including three that Ernest Ranglin played on! The Rico/TSPO collab L-O-V-E also gets reprised before the show concludes. That’s amore!
