LJM Show

7/11/24, Dateline Denton, TX

Really? Are you serious? Again? Another one? Already? Scheiße! Well, I guess it has been a year. Which can only mean one of several things—1) I guess it’s my birthday, and I guess it’s time for the by-now inevitable:

LITTLE JACK MELODY ANNUAL BIRTHDAY GIG, HERE IN DENTON,
AT DAN’S SILVERLEAF, A MATINEE DOWNBEAT AT 3:00 PM
ON SATURDAY, JULY 13TH. AND YOU’RE INVITED!

Birthdays aren’t my favorite time of year. Some people like ‘em. Not me. For one thing, I’m very, very old. I can’t tell you exactly how old because I was strong-armed into signing a non-disclosure agreement (NDA), as pertains to all actual true facts and bullet points regarding my personal nativity and all that has followed. Fact is, I couldn’t tell you how old I’ll be turning on 7/11 even if I did want to. Under penalty of law. The Showbiz Histrionics Institute of Technology (S.H.I.T.) in Los Angeles, (LJM proud alum of same, year of graduation undisclosable by edict) is one cruel, (but fair), mistress, and she brooks no quarter on this topic. Lips sealed.

But all this being the case, I have learned that one way to detoxify the viper’s sting of advancing age is by playing a birthday gig to celebrate myself, in the public forum, on or about my birthday day. Since July 11th itself wasn’t a good fit this year, we’ve opted for Saturday, July 13th instead, an early show at 3:00 pm, (partly because with my creeping-up-on-me decrepitude I’ll probably be asleep on the couch w/ the TV blaring by 8:30 pm), and partly because matinee is such an evocative word, and partly because it’ll still be daylight out. All boxes are checked for a splendid time to be had by all.

So here are the stalwart Young Turks who’ll be celebrating there live on stage with yours truly:


Brad Williams
, harmonium and other keyboards
Dave Monsch, saxes, clarinet
Carl Kleinsteuber, tuba, and
Dennis Durick, drums

AND the Joe Friday “just the facts, ma’am, just the facts” facts of the gig are:


Venue: Dan’s Silverleaf, 103 Industrial St., Denton, TX 76201
Dateof gig: Saturday, July 13, 2024
Downbeat of gig: 3:00 pm CST
Weather forecast: Not actually too bad, and could be a lot worse
Fashion outlook: Casual, comfortable, sensible shoes, if that makes sense

I guess that just about does it. A big old BIG OLD celebration. Hello in there. Hello. We really do hope you can make it to the show.

Peace out,

love to you all,
yours etc.,

Little Jack Melody
