He was 30 years old when he ripped up The Judy Garland Show in 1964. From the Utoobage comments: “The ‘Best Boy Dancer’ happened to be the choreographer for this dance. His name is Bobby Banas. He also played Joyboy in Westside story.”
I’d say the girl did a bang up job but she got no credit.
In 2019 Pellegrino sued Epic Games for allegedly using his likeness when designing the “Phone it in” dance emote. “Because of his externally rotatable feet, he eventually developed his own unique dancing style and his signature and original movements – viz., the Signature Move,” reads the filing.
“I LOVE the slushy groove of 85 year old Colin Bowden, who lays down Dixieland drumming like no other!”
Definitely Slushy and Groovy.
Bowden passed away on August 1, 2021. [h/t Corinne L.]
“By capitalizing the “S” in the middle of BeauSoleil, the Cajun band’s name becomes beautiful sun, but the truth is the band is named for an Acadian resistance fighter. Joseph Broussard Beausoleil fought the English in the mid-1700s.”
Ida Mae is husband/wife team Christopher and Stephanie Jean Turpin, roots rock musicians from Norfolk, UK, who met after joining a soul band while attending Bath Spa University. Now they’re recording in Nashville Tennessee.
Don’t try your love on sexy Ida… She not only wants your love, she wants your life after that. Don’t do it. Ike & Tina Turner, Soul Train, 1975.
Hope all y’all in Ida’s path have either bugged out by now or are at least hunkered down in a safe place. She ain’t worth the risk just for bragging rights.
While you’re at it, toss in a prayer for our citizens and military still stranded in Afghanistan. I fear that worse horrors are coming…

America Paz: “I spent three years playing on the street in Chile – when the video went viral my career changed.” More about her here.
Greensky Bluegrass‘ Living Over reminds me of some of the stuff I’d listen to on early morning cross-country roadtrips many years ago.
GA-20 does a mighty fine cover of Billy The Kid Emerson‘s No Teasin’ Around (1954). I need to pay more attention to these guys from Boston.
That’ll do for this edition of The Saturday Matinee. Rock on me bloogies, have a great weekend, and we’ll think of something else to do tomorrow.
Joey Ramone‘s song and stop-motion vid New York City were made and released in 2012, 11 years after his death. The song was an overdub of a demo tape. Tommy Erdlai (Tommy Ramone) is in there somewhere (I think that’s him at 02:57).
Geddy Lee cranks it. I should have paid more attention to Rush; I liked the sound but couldn’t stand the vocals.
Stanley Clarke‘s Touch, live at the Newport Jazz Festival (2003). Another amazing bass solo (with some annoying narration stuck in the middle of it).
