Go Dancing, My Sister Always Did

Use Your Find Tool

One way to hunt for the location or band name or date you need is to go to your browser menu and find the find command. On Netscape, mine is under "edit." Then type in a date

or the band name like Swing Rays

or a city, like Indianapolis

and see what pops up on this page. But remember to hit F3 to get the next hit, and the next. It’s the only way I can "organize" this without a database!

If you have a CD or tape to promote, read Tell-Mama’s new columnist, Kenny Love, a real pro at promotion!

On this page I will paste in notices Our Tentative Times has received when I have the time. I just don’t have time to write it all fancy. What you send is what will appear here.

Howdy Folks!

For once I’m going to be ahead of schedule with the mailer.

Here’s the scoop:

Our last gig for a while is going to be the October 30th CD release party for 8Ball Grifter @ Mac’s in Lansing, MI.

We are going to be out of commission for November while JP undergoes corrective surgery for a deviated septum, but just so you won’t feel left out in the cold we’ve put a few new tunes up on the Bio page

  • Ronnie Dawson

    Hi Sandra, Marc Mencher here… Ronnie’s booking agent…


    Ronnie Dawson will definitely be playing the Hemsby Festival in 2000…start saving your money now so you can make that trip!!

    Rumor has it that Bigger Than Elvis will be playing every so often in Indy at The Bull Dog, (54th and College). Don’t miss the experience! They are such fun.

    FOUNTAIN SQUARE THEATRE: Indianapolis: Thursday Swing Nights are $10.00 and that includes a serious, professional dance lesson.

    Directions to the theatre

    The 7th Rockabilly Rebel Weekender happened June 17 – 20, 1999 at Fountain Square Theatre in Indianapolis. We couldn’t get to this year’s weekender. The Sixth Rockabilly Rebel Weekend, the original weekender in the States, has great coverage here in Tell-Mama.

    Josie Kreuzer

    Oh no! This page is a year OLD! This just isn’t working out, my posting the "latest news." Hellllllp! There is so much news of Josie’s 1998 tour that it has its own page now! Please read about Josie Kreuzer’s American tour here in Tell-Mama!!

    Josie Kreuser needs a new guitar player

    This isn’t real new either…. oh dear, oh dear….

    Hi folks,

    It’s Josie Kreuzer here again, just letting you know that unfortunately I’ve had to cancel my next 3 shows (Doll Hut-Thurs 3/4, Sportsman-Sat 3/13 and Doll Hut -Thurs. 3/11) because I lost my guitar player. Nope he’s not dead (not until I see him next anyways–just kidding). I’ve got friends subbing for my upcoming St Patricks Day show and my show at Jacks Sugar Shack with Ronnie Dawson on March 26th (that one will actually be a treat to you LA Fans because my substitute Guit player is Teri Tom (my former "Whistle Bait" right hand gal). Well I hope you Anheimians will forgive me and I promise I’ll make it up to you at my next Doll Hut gig. Oh, that reminds me, if any of you know of any talented guitarists out there that would like to audition for my band please tell em to give me a hollar / e-mail / ring-a-ding (619)229-9338. They must be able to go on the road for up to 2 1/2 months and be able to relocate to San Diego. I’ll also be looking for a full-time steel player for my next tour.

    Happy Trails,

    Current Gigs near Tell-Mama in Indiana have been impossible for me to keep updated.

    Your best bet in music is to go to the music index for Tell-Mama

    Officer Greg (Laxton) and his bride Cindy have a website with Rockabilly news, at Cars, bars and guitars in Southern California, at

    This looks like a site I can learn a lot from. I love the beginning of it, and they update it well. All the luck in the world to the editor of this site! At last, a link for the Paso Robles run!!!!!
