Hi Guys

Today is Tuesday............. If it's not Tuesday then you're either living in the future or this mail is history.

Tuesday ........ What is it?... is there a need for Tuesday?
Just that sound of it... that 'ue' sound is enough to put anyone off.
I mean Monday is not great but it's something different after the weekend...... and if you're a Musician...... well then Monday is a public Holiday.
Wednesday.... that's OK..... It has midweek status and if you're a muso well that too is sometimes a public holiday.
Then we have Thursday ..... that's quite cool.... that's one sleep from Friday..... and if you're a muso who had a heavy gig on Wednesday night......... well then Thursday is also a public holiday.
Friday ...... That's got real status and is the beginning of something very big............ The weekend.......... Yeah.
So here we are with 2 more cool days.... Saturday and Sunday which speak for themselves as they fall under the weekend umbrella...........
But getting back to Tuesday.
Why on earth do we need this day? We could have a 6 day week without it.........
Nothing good can come out of having a day like Tuesday........ it's just a nothing day............... Until NOW!!!

It's time for Boulevard Blues News on the TUES.............. yeah....... TGIT..... 'Thank God it's Tuesday'.........
which incidently if you are a musician is also a public holiday because if a Public Holiday falls on a Monday (which if you are a muso it does) then Tuesday is also declared a Public Holiday.
So Yeah.... Tuesday Rocks....

This Easter Weekend unfortunately if you are a Muso is not a holiday.... it's time to do some Blues Work...........
So we head off to Bloemendal Wynhuis in Durbanville with instruments in hand for one of Cape Town's favourite festivals...

Yes it's Champagne and Oyster time....
Let's see what's on the menu

Shuck and Slurp competitions:
Over 15000 oysters are getting ready to be slucked in one of the biggest oyster gatherings in the southern hemisphere.
This is where men and women are men and the oysters are nervous.
Suck on an oyster and then wash it down with French Champagne or local bubbly while listening to your favourite band.

One of the highlights will be celebrity chef Jenny Morris the 'Giggling Gourmet'
She will be showing us exactly how to do it right first time in the Kitchen while giggling at the same time.
One of her specialities is cutting the head off a live oyster and then submerging it into hot burning oil for 3 minutes.....
draining it and then bringing it back to life with a shot of adrenaline and 5mg of propylonomine

If you can't stand the heat then just this once stay in the Jenny Morris Kitchen because Another feature will be a very entertaining Fire show and extravaganza with Martin Scott between Boulevard Blues sets.
Don't forget to bring along your ice cubes because He turns the ice into water and Bloemendal turns the water into wine.

Boulevard Blues have Guest Drummer Theron Peterson joining us from the USA and he'll be doing a Texas Shuffle that's gonna Rock.

When:
Sat 11th April 11:00am till 10:00pm
Sun 12th April 10:00am till 6:00pm
Adults-R60...... Kids - Free

Our Joke of the month
.................comes from Greg Smith (He's a local boy)..................
Two Pukes Vic Vomit and Puke Ellington are walking down the road
They're on their way to the movies to watch a double feature: 'Kotcha Falling Star' and 'Puke-a-hontas'
As they're walking along 'ol Vic Vomit slows down, starts looking around and begins to feel very nostalgic....
Puke Ellington notices his friend is very distracted and with concern says .... 'Yo Vic ........What's up man? ... We're gonna be late'
Vic replies 'Hey Dude.....Just give me a moment .......It's this neighbourhood......This is where I was brought up'.


Definition of the year
Alot of people have asked me 'What is health?'
I reply......'It's just the slowest possible way you can Die'


Tip of the Day
If you have a Cough and want to stop it before it drives you mad.....
Then go to the Chemist.......buy a box of brooklax
Eat the entire box.
Tommorrow you definitely won't cough.......... That's Guaranteed.


Revelation of the week
Middle age is all about your age showing around your middle.....


Last Thought
Enjoy getting old because The more you forget ......The clearer your conscience.
