A Good Word From Showpitch

Twitter is proving to be fun.

A new music platform looking to bring together artists, venues, promoters, and producers--Showpitch--gave us a nice shout-out.












Hey, thanks!  And we concur: go check out Little Heartbeat on our Showpitch page and tap some toes this afternoon!

Sweet Honey From The PaperBox

There was a skilled vidoegrapher in our midst at The PaperBox, a Mr. Kevin Vonesper, and he recorded our closing tune of the evening, "Where the Honey Goes."  Check out the tune below, and go say hi to Kevin here.

B.B.'s Thing

All of us here at THP Central are always working on our craft.  After all, when we get together to play the blues live we strive to be more than the sum of our parts, so it helps if those parts are as good as they can be.

All to say, the indefatigable music connoisseur, Mr. M. Twiggs, at the inestimable Soulful45's (and Mighty Burners), had a few kind words for a solo instrumental tune Marlon worked up not long ago, a nod to the master called "B.B.'s Thing."  Twiggs says, "Marlon really heats things up on the guitar" with this one!

Check out the music critic's full thoughts along with Marlon's sounds, here.

P.S.  And our best wishes go out to the legend himself, B.B. King, who was hospitalized recently.  The band kept the fingers on our fretting hands, our vocal cords, and our drum sticks crossed all week in the hopes of a speedy recovery.  Looks like our hopes were answered!  Can't keep a good man down.
