It may be the most famous song in the world — but you probably don't know it by the name it was originally called. "Happy Birthday to You," that little ditty that floats above cakes and candles the world over, was written by Mildred and Patty Hill, two sisters from Louisville, Ky.

The sisters wrote the song in the 1890s for Patty's kindergarten students — and they'd intended it to be sung in classrooms, as "Good Morning To All."

Formed in 2010 by Jay Souza from the band 50 Cent Haircut, and Bosco Sheff, both from Boston, this band is based in Los Angeles.

Their two releases so far are "Cool Your Jets" and "Be Happy"

After playing gigs at the Black Swamp Arts Festival in Bowling Green, Ohio, they will perform a couple of times in central Ohio.

Named after the Django Reinhardt song "Rhythm Futur", this act performs gypsy jazz standards and original compositions.

They have a couple of performances coming up at the Black Swamp Arts Festival in Bowling Green, Ohio on Sept. 12 and 13, and a show at Natalie's Coal Fired Pizza In Worthington on Sept. 11.

These two veterans of the World Saxophone Quartet will be in Central Ohio to play a few shows with the Jazz Poetry Ensemble.

They will perform at Natalie's Coal Fired Pizza in Worthington on Sept. 9, and at Dick's Den, the next night.

Then on Sept. 13, 3:45 pm, they'll be at the Hot Times Festival.

The release show for his new cd, "My Mountain", is coming up at Woodlands Tavern on September 10.

He also plays Wednesdays at the Ugly Tuna Saloona.

Dick and Jane Song of the Week: Undeserving

Sep 1, 2015


Some people work for what they earn 
while others just get what they want 
Giving them respect for no good reason 
Using their rep on the dollar front 
No one can realize or even react 
Except for the people who build up their stacks 
The ones who put in the hard time 
Will slowly become victims of the crime
