I've received a reminder for the above from Mr Finewine:

Hook & Boogie Productions presents an



The vintage R&B event of the summer! Red-hot Los Angeles-based singer YOUNGJESSIE-a onetime member of the Flairs and the Coasters and a solo star onsuch smoking 1950s and early-'60s singles as the original "Mary Lou," "HitGit and Split," "Shuffle in the Gravel," and "I Smell a Rat," makes hisfirst New York City appearance in nearly 50 years on Friday, July 13.He'll be backed by local stalwarts THE DANSETTES, those three lovelyharmonizing ladies with rock-solid gentlemen right behind them on Hammond,guitar, drums, and bass (think Booker T. and the MGs-meet-the Vandellas).Young Jessie will be doing strictly the songs you know and love from his records!

Hammondbeat Records artists the Dansettes will play a set of their ownkiller material as well. And as if that weren't enough for one band,they'll also heroically support Atlanta/Los Angeles/New York City legend

THE MIGHTY HANNIBAL! Fresh off blistering appearances in Austin and his hometown of Atlanta (where the City Council presented him with acertificate proclaiming "Mighty Hannibal Day"!), the genius behind hitslike "Jerkin' the Dog," "Hymn No. 5," and "The Truth Shall Make You Free"is thrilled to be sharing a stage with his old L.A. running mate YoungJessie and promises that it will be a night for the ages. Don't miss thisrare opportunity to hear his new single "Hymn No. 9/11"!
