SH-BITS AND SH-BLUNDERS
Sh-Boom Gossip and Gab...and other observations by Heartthrob Rob.
In August Sh-Boom traveled via charter jet to the Greenbrier Resort to perform for a corporate event.
The exclusive Greenbrier in West Virginia is a well known PGA stop and home of golf pro Sam Snead. Band members Ben and Rob waited several hours in the clubhouse bar in hopes of a chance meeting with Mr. Snead, but Sam was a no show. The night, by all other accounts, was a resounding success. Sh-Boom’s outdoor poolside performance was framed by the Allegheny Mountains and the championship golf course. Thanks to the Lexington Group for booking the gig.
Sh-Boom played in the Ozarks this summer for groups of doctors and lawyers, leaving the band invulnerable to any malpractice suits. Now, if we could just get insurance against anyone hitting us up for cheesy humor and bad impersonations! The shows were at Branson’s Chateau-on-the-Lake and the Lodge of Four Seasons.
Speaking of bad impersonations, expect to see new appearances by Simon & Garfunkel, and Aretha Franklin with the Frankly Ugly Chicks at upcoming shows.
Drummer Dennis now sings songs by Ray Charles and Charles Daniels . As you can see we limit Dennis’ impersonations to a very narrow range of names.
Sh-Boom performed the National Anthem at the current Busch Stadium for the last time over the summer. The band brought the house down…so to speak! We hope to see you at the new Busch Stadium next year.
Welcome in the New Year with a party at the Heart of St. Charles Banquet Center in, you guessed it, St. Charles. For more info click here. The location of the annual “Night of Miracles” dinner/dance is also new; Sh-Boom will perform this yearly highlight at the Marriott Airport location.
What fun it was for the band to perform again for our friends at Chuck-A-Burger. Sh-Boom opened the doors of the new Chuck-A-Burger in St. Charles, MO on August 19th. Chuck-A-Burger has the best burgers, shakes, and nostalgia in town, and we’re not saying that just because WE WANT TO PLAY THERE AGAIN AND GET FREE FOOD!
Let’s recap: Sh-Boom played Chuck-A-Burger in St. Charles and will play New Year’s Eve at the Heart of St. Charles. Perhaps we should let Dennis sing his “Charles” songs more often. Peace, out.
New Sh-Boom pic's to view
A picture IS worth a thousand words! Dianna Trombino, better known as talented photographer “Lady Di”, follows both local and national blues bands. Lady Di discovered the non-blues antics of Sh-Boom at a recent show in Highland, IL and has been following us every since. Dianna maintains an excellent web site called ladydibluescorner.com where she posts pictures of her favorite local and national bands. It’s reported that she’s the official photographer for BB King when he’s in town. Check out some great photo’s of Sh-Boom at the following links;

LONG TRAIN RUNNIN’
23rd Annual dance was a sell-out!
Sh-Boom’s 23rd annual dance at St. Francis of Assisi in Oakville , MO was an extraordinary success. Well over 400 tickets were sold in advance of the annual September event in South County . The gym was packed with Sh-Boom fans dancing elbow-to-elbow where the band has entertained for 23 consecutive years. What started out in 1983 as a small “beer & belly-bomber” sock hop has continued to grow each year. Look for Sh-Boom to return to St. Francis for the 24th annual dance on September 30, 2006 !
