If you are wondering what I am talking about feel free to read the proper back story HERE and don’t worry we can wait on you….. This past Friday Mrs. Trumpet and I headed down to Joe’s Pub to listen to The Joe McGinty 7 perform Loser’s Lounge tribute to Sir Elton John. We did the hard math that night and determined that it was 21 years when we went to the First Losers Lounge show. This year’s show was equally as great. Sadly we didn’t have someone eviscerate “Rocket Man” like the first show but all of them were equally as good.
We attended with Maria and BoBo who was fresh off of his hospital tour and Maria upped the stakes and got us front row seats. 23 songs on the set list, starting with “Tiny Dancer” and finishing with naturally “Step into Christmas” it was a good time Friday night. When I say that you are missing a great time, I am serious. We even got one of my 6 readers out of “Crime Free Upper West Side” to attend andwe think she liked it. Not sure who the next tribute will be but we will keep you posted.
