A Dyke About Town: The Bobs make audience laugh out loud

by Mercy Moosemuzzle - SGN Contributing Writer

The Bobs
Mercy had never heard of The Bobs. She was happy Cuteness told her about them. She ate up their energetic performance on December 26 at the Triple Door.

The group consists of Gunnar Madsen, Matthew Stull, Richard Greene, and Amy Engelhardt. Their harmonies were very tight and their satirical lyrics funny.

They opened with a song, "Eight Days a Week," making the Beatles tune work with Hannukah words. That was Cuteness' favorite. Engelhardt joked that there are no Jews at the North Pole, but, if there were, they would be the Icebergs.

Amy led the next song, from the point of view of the Virgin Mary, with "How Did This Thing Get in Me." "Christmas in Jail" continued the humor.

Mercy liked these lyrics from "Christmas in L.A.": "Take this with a grain of salt/ They've unfrozen Uncle Walt/ Don't know if it's Goofy's fault/ It's Christmas in L.A."

"Too Many Santas" was funny, as was a song dealing with ostentatious lawn displays, "Fifty Kilowatt Tree." The Beatles song "You Can't Do That," started out serious, but added some drone to satirize George Harrison's conversion to Transcendental Meditation.

"My Baby Loves Trash" had these fun words: "My baby loves trash/ He leaves his trash all over the place/ I think I'm going to have to trash my baby."

"Disappointment Famous" paid tribute to Ennio Morricone, the composer for westerns like A Fistful of Dollars. "Helter Skelter" was a jazzy rearrangement of the Beatles tune. "Pounded on a Rock" had a driving beat.

One of Mercy's favorites was "Slow Down, Krishna": "Slow down, Krishna/ Your red Trans Am is going way too fast/ Slow down, Krishna/ Or your current life will be your last."

Amy came back onstage wearing antlers and asked "Do you like my rack? Cheap joke, I know." "Get Your Monkey Off My Dog" rocked out.

Godfrey Daniels, the clown, came to the stage and did his routine accompanied by The Bobs. "Mambo, Santa, Mambo" was a sing-along. Engelhardt joked that some audiences had misheard the words as "Mumble, Santa, mumble."

Cream's "White Room" earned the group a standing ovation. They came back and did a sweet version "Christmastime Is Here Again" closing the evening in a beautiful place.

Women's Regional Business and Networking Alliance
Cuteness wants you to know about a networking group through Women of West Seattle. Its goals were to unite women in business and develop a business directory. It has been a success.

It is now the Women's Regional Business and Networking Alliance. You can see their new website at www.wrbna.org. You will be able to access their new business directory there. Please use their directory when shopping for goods and services.

If you wish to be included in the directory, please go to the "contact us" page on the website. If you know of a business, please send them some info and the organizers will contact you.

If you are (or know of) a non-profit serving the women's community, please let them know for inclusion on their community page.

The Seduction of Moxie
Mercy very much enjoyed Colette Moody's historical romance, The Seduction of Moxie. The '30s Broadway and Hollywood settings were well-detailed. Moxie Valette is an innocent ingénue on the path to stardom. Violet Lonon is a Lesbian actress with much more experience. Sparks fly as sex and love ensue. The book is well-written and fun.

Pearl Django
Mercy and Cuteness are looking forward to seeing one of their favorite bands, Pearl Django, at Jazz Alley. They will be there January 4 through 9. They will appear with special guest guitarist Martin Taylor. Band members include Troy Chapman (guitar), and Ryan Hoffman (guitar), Rick Leppanen (bass), Michael Gray (violin), and David Lange (accordion).

Now in their 16th year of performing, Pearl Django continues to be one of America's most respected and busiest hot club style groups. They were voted favorite area jazz band 2003 by Seattle Weekly readers.
