As Marie Antoinette Would Say: Happy Birthday to -- US!

Turning 84 must make a man feel young again.  In October, Chuck Berry will be celebrating his birthday like it's 1959, with performances at Blueberry Hill in St. Louis on October 20, The Pageant on October 16, the The Strathmore in North Bethesda, Maryland on October 22, and The Argosy Casino on October 23.  Dang!

I can't vouch for this personally, but I'm told Mr. Berry likes the sound system at the Argosy, where he can hear himself think and play, and that his picking gets particulary good there.

Ah-- but I'm booked already.  So I'll have to make do with just two of these shows!  (Poor me.)
