This just in from MOJOman & royal pendleton mike hurtt (slightly edited for Memphis relevance from original New Orleans alert):
Dear Music Lover,
This saturday night, the Bluff City will bear witness to NATHANIEL MAYER,
one of the most dynamic soul men ever to come crashing out of the Motor
City. Is that saying something? Well, yes it is, as a quick trip to the
website http://www.soulfuldetroit.com will tell you, there was NO place like pre-riot, early '60s, sharkskin suit and alligator shoes Detroit, baby! We
ain't talkin' about Motown, either, we're talking about doo-wop and soul
colliding in the kind of microphone-ribbon shattering frenzy that could have
ONLY been captured betwixt the cinder block walls and dirt floors of the
hallowed Fortune studio, the same place that Andre Willims cut "Jailbait"
and "Bacon Fat."
MAYER will be slinging out ALL of his hits and misses on Friday including
his 1962 smash "Village Of Love," "I Had A Dream," "Leave Me Alone," "I Want
Love And Affection (Not THe House Of Correction)," "My Lonely Island, "A
Place I Know" and even a few songs that he penned for Nolan Strong and the
Diablos and never got to record himself. Will he cover "Mind Over Matter"?
WHO KNOWS!! Be there to find out!!
Detroit's Shanks--led by founding Detroit Cobra Jeff Meir and former
Compulsive Gambler Dale Beavers--and featuring that deerstalker sporting
man-about-the-Midwest Dan Mulholland, will provide the necessary propulsive
