Absolute Blue Invitation 1/27/17 - 1/30/17
Absolute Blue Serves
It is at times like these that we find ourselves proud and a little surprised that we are still Americans. And that Absolute Blue is considered one of the true Great American Bands. But don’t take our word for it, listen to LBJ, where upon his inauguration was heard to say metaphorically, “Do these socks match?” And the great Winston Churchill no doubt had us in mind when he said “We will play in the trenches, we will play on the beaches, we will play in the streets,” etc. The key is that while they may not be talking at us, they are speaking to us in meaningless and sometimes incoherent ways. Time and time again, after being knocked down, we get right back up, mostly just in time for dinner. And when the going gets tough, we will not be held liable, or reliable for that matter. And we have never failed to inspire, like that time we ran into those European guys at the beach and Bill said, “Damn the four speedo’s, pull tweed instead!” We never knew what that meant until just now. Ok, maybe not even then. But the key is that when asked to serve we have done so dutifully if not beautifully:
-Kevin served honorably in the US Navy and many times came close to almost getting on an actual boat. He would have received the Meritorious Service Medal for Doing Good if such a thing existed.
-Don applied for service in the Army when he thought they were looking for a Sue Goodman, his high school girlfriend. He then signed on to the Army Preserves, thinking it was a military jelly of the month club.
-Skip served many times on his coed tennis team.
-Bill served fries with that.
-Tom served 3 to 5.
Join us for a doubleheader this weekend at Keith’s Oyster Bar at Cocoa Beach Pier Friday and Saturday, 6 to 10….
Absolute Blue Invitation 1/06/17 - 1/08/17
Absolute Blue Hams
We at Absolute Blue once again have our finger on the pulse of America. Or at least we are in the same room as the machine that monitors the pulse of America. In any case, we’re in there somewhere. As a result, we have become aware of a phenomenon that we thought involved Zorro the Gay Blade, but turns out to be the story of our founding fathers rapping about the birth of our nation. Or at least the raising of it through its formative years. And now we see a generation of youth that paid no attention in school, suddenly interested in American History. Tupac would be so proud. Or maybe pissed, not sure. So we have developed our own ill-conceived and poorly executed production called Burr. It chronicles Raymond’s career starting with Gojira, through the rise of Perry Mason culminating in the enigmatic Ironside. And should that fail we have more projects in development and/or turnaround:
-Madison: Follows Dolly’s products starting with Zingers through the disaster that was Snowballs to the triumph of the Twinkie.
-Jackson: The story of how the MF snakes got on the MF plane.
-Jefferson: Documents George’s journey from a minor character in All In the Family to his own sitcom.
-Washington: Featuring the early years, culminating in the rise of the star that is Denzel.
-Adams: Telling the tale of Samuel’s best, featuring Boston Lager, Octoberfest and Harvest Pumpkin Ale.
-Hancock: Will Smith explains the ill-advised superhero fiasco.
-Harrison: Ford, obviously.
Join us for post-holiday Friday night at Grind and Grape in Vero Beach, on Bougainvillea just off Ocean Drive, from 9 to 12…
The Sunday it’s back to Malabar Mo’s from 4 to 8…
Absolute Blue Invitation 12/30/16 - 12/31/16
Absolute Blue Reflects
This is the time to reflect on a successful year, made possible only by your support. We survived, intact for the most part, and have enjoyed bringing you the unique and sometimes debilitating musical stylings that have become known as the Absolute Blue Experience. Sure there were some problems along the way, like when Tom had a root canal after the dentist told him he couldn’t handle the tooth. And that time we ran out of beer that became a real brewhaha. Not to mention the many times we worked through the noon hour in an effort we call Failure to Lunch. We had the best year since Skip joined the band, that fateful day when we heard him play Trashman and made him an offer he couldn’t refuse. And during our annual meeting of The Worst Band You’ll Ever Love Inc board and band members, lawyers, strategists, legislators and a couple of Hooters girls, we were able to unanimously approve the following resolutions for 2017:
-Continue the time honored tradition of playing notes and singing words at the same time.
-Remove any partisan politics from the Absolute Blue performance, and lean to the right only after jaeger shots.
-Learn the difference between flammable and inflammable. Also send a thank you note to the Satellite Beach fire department.
-Give appropriate credit to the source of our fart jokes, as they break the wind beneath our wings.
-Prove that a holomorphic function is indeed completely determined by its values on the inherent boundaries, that every non consistent single variable polynomial with complex coefficients has at least one complex root or that Bigfoot exists.
Please join us for a Friday night at Grind and Grape, in Vero Beach, on Bougainvillea just off Ocean Drive, from 9 to 12…
Then Saturday it’s the night you’ve been waiting for at Cocoa Beach Pier. There will be entertainment all night from 3 different bands, with us performing from 9 to 1. Only $35 gets you in the door and all the festivity you can handle…
