The Ash Grove; Bernie Pearl and Barbara Morrison, Live and a new CD: Sat. night, Feb. 15


Bernie Pearl and Barbara Morrison, Live and a a new CD: Sat. night, Feb. 15

Valentine’s Day is here, and tomorrow night we celebrate the release of my new CD, “Take Your Time”, with a Champage Reception, CD Concert, and Blues Jam at Barbara Morrison’s Performing Arts Center. It’s always great to hear that people are enjoying the music. I’d like to share a quote from concert promoter, musician, and fan, Michael Gliona: “Technically this is the best self produced CD I have ever heard. Vinyl has nothing over this one. Bernie’s guitars sound like they are right there in your room. Plenty of natural ambience. Artistically it is a knockout. Bernie Pearl ( digs deep. The incomparable Barbara Morrison ( adds perfect vocal support.” If you love the Blues, you’re going to want to join us at Barbara’s place tomorrow night! On Saturday, February 15, The Barbara Morrison Performing Arts Center will host a Champagne Reception and CD Release Concert to celebrate blues guitarist Bernie Pearl’s just-released recording, “Take Your Time”. The evening will start with a 7:30-8:00 champagne and hors oeuvres reception in the atrium. At 8:15 the focus moves to the theater stage where Pearl, Morrison & Band will perform selections from the CD. An All-Star Blues Jam follows at 9:30, featuring sizzling New Orleans guitar master Big Terry DeRouen, and L.A.’s greatest real-deal blues singer, Jamie “Blues Boy” Powell. Joined by Bobby “Hurricane” Spencer, Mike Barry, Albert Trepagnier, and special guests, they will jam the Blues. And for the dancers, the venue has recently been remodeled for that purpose. All guests will be offered a complementary “Take Your Time” poster, designed by EK Waller, as a memento of this special evening. Copies of the CD will be offered for sale, and Barbara, Bernie, and the Band will be available for autographs. Tickets are $20, available at the door. Advance tickets may be purchased at Parking – Ample metered parking adjacent to the Center runs until 8:00, free thereafter. Bring coins.
