Lionel's Birthday Bash at the Kitty

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fp8vDCty5CA

What are the three main ingredients of a Birthday Bash for a LA Free Concerts organizer? A dark, sexy venue. Strong cocktails. And of course great live music that will make your hips shake, your feet move and your heart flutter! From Hendrix to The Meters to Marvin Gaye to James Brown, the 310 Band are masters of many genres... and really, really good. They got the funk--most definitely. But they also know how to jazz it up--their lead guitarist played with Etta James. And just when you think you got them figured out they throw some rock & roll your way. We'll also be celebrating Abby's (17th), Ciji's and Bill's (23rd) birthdays!

Liquid Kitty, Lionel's favorite Westside lounge, is rolling out the red carpet for LA Free Concerts. We'll have reserved tables and Happy Hour all night long featuring their award-winning martinis. The Kitty... dark, seductive, intimate, is a place free of inhibition. It's an indulgence that must be experienced to be believed.

    I had the best birthday thanks to all you great people. I really appreciate you coming out on a Sunday night. It was great seeing old friends and also new faces. The band lived up to their billing and the highlight was when they played the Beatles' Happy Birthday for Abby and myself. Nice. Thanks to everyone who put in overtime and went to Canter's lol especially Sharmen. Michael--your photography skills improve with each event, lol. Great pics. And thank you very much for the gifts. But some of them did not have a name--please email me if you gave me the following: Mumm Napa, Sterling Cab, Saint-Emilion Bordeaux, L'Authentique red, mugs, Superman, 310 CD. Of course the best gift was your presence.

    I'm excited to see so many friends and new members coming tonight. It may get a little crowded. But tonight there are no strangers. We'll all friends--or soon will be. It may get a little loud. Well, this is a band that plays Hendrix. And that's a good thing. We'll have plenty of time to socialize before they come on at 10. Thank you all for spending your Sunday night with me.
