Milne at the Moose
Hello to all,
I hope you’re all planning to attend the Bob Milne concert at the Moose Lodge tonight - not only is it a much-needed benefit for the Little Brown Church, it promises to be an evening of extraordinary music. Bob is considered the greatest living player of ragtime piano, that joyous, rollicking, uniquely American genre popularized in the early days of the last century by composer Scott Joplin.
In keeping with the barrel-house roots of the music, the Lodge will be serving bratwurst tonight, and the $25 admission includes a brat and a beer. Additional fare is available for reasonable cost. The show starts at 7 pm, but come early - Bob considers himself something of a pool-shooter (a sure sign of a misspent youth) and might be talked into a little demonstration before the concert.
Tickets are available at the door. The Moose Lodge is located at 776 Bradford Way, just off Hwy. 1 in the Fairway Park area. Hope to see you all tonight. I’ll be tending bar, so there’ll be no question of weak drinks or short beers.
