Niagara Rhythm Section's Saturday Night "MUSICAL IMPROV" Series

Every Saturday night - 10 p.m. - 12:30 a.m. - no cover

This week's featured guest: Sat., June 23 - JOHN DICKIE

The Anchorage
186 Ricardo St.
Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON

This Saturday (June 23), we welcome back John Dickie (of The Mississippi Hippies) to the Anchorage. Last time he was here we had a blast. What an excellent singer and personality. Here's what it says on his website.

Name: John 'Little Johnnie' Dickie

Astrological Sign: cancer- 'cancer shmancer, as long as you've got your health.'

Instrument: plays lead vocal, which is like lead guitar, only it's like vocals; also guitar, mandolin, harmonica and piano.

Past musical tribes: John and the Sisters (which is also a current tribe), The Prima Donnas, The Cameos, Mondo Combo and Piledriver back in the '70s.

Hallmark musical moment: sharing stages with all the greats over the years, like Albert Collins, Levon Helm, Garth Hudson, Dr. John, Holly Cole, n' The Neville Bros. Also, interviewing people like Oscar Peterson and Buddy Guy on all-night talk radio, and never having to compromise my deal...musically.

First Became A Hippie: the first time I heard the legendary Buffalo New York DJ George 'Hounddog' Lorenz broadcasting his R 'n' B show from the bon ton in Buffalo live, all those fuzzy years ago. Don't miss this one!
