Because my Homie Cory Says So!


I love the sights & sounds of the Land of 1000 Dances. They live in me.

The music, the laughter, the "hip talk", the lights, the cars, the crowds, the bands, the dancing, the good times, the good people‘«™it seems that when it comes to music and dancing, people don't age as fast in L.A. like they do in other places, and "gettin' your boogie on" takes on a special meaning in the City of Angels.

With me coming real close to packing a couple of nickels in years under my belt, I'm sometimes younger among some crowds of music veteranos I find good company with, and I still enjoy a night out with my Lady & friends as new music groups with that old sound spring up.

Lot's of talent in 'da hood....

"The Kid" can still tira chancla with the best of them ! Ha ! None of that standing around the bar waiting for a drunk chick in a mini-skirt to get weak, no, not me!

I gots to get MY boogie on !

This month, my homie CORY SILVA, best known as one of the "EAST L.A. Bad Boyz of Oldies" since the early 1980's, takes a short step off the stage and puts on his promoter hat as he brings his latest discovery to the Eastside, at the new PALOMA ROOM (formerly the Montebello Inn) on Whittier Boulevard in Montebello .

Word on the street is that the Paloma Room is totally renovated, re-painted, and remodeled for your total comfort and enjoyment, and who better to bring back the crowds on Whittier Boulevard than Mr. "Dreaming Casually" himself, Cory Silva.

The band, hailing from Southern California's Inland Empire, is called NEW VOICE, and word on the street is that these guys "be bad", and once they hit the stage, it's on !

I've known Cory for more than a couple of years, and I can honestly say that he is a good singer & performer, and being around the music business as long as he has, and the "names" he has shared a stage with, not a lot really gets him excited.

So when he e-mailed me earlier this week to tell me about his new project, I could feel his enthusiasm as he proclaimed his return to his home turf on Whittier Boulevard with a new kick ass band, and a show he could put his name to‘«™not something he easily does.

The last time was with his daughter SARINA, before that with TIERRA & SOTO, and before that was San Jose's KOOL KATZ and heavy Motown "names" like the TEMPTATIONS, MARVELETTES, and SLY, SLICK & WICKED to name a few, so he isn't considered a minor leaguer given to promoting just anybody.

Friday September 4th, and Friday September 18th are slated for NEW VOICE to make their move on the Eastside crowd, at the PALOMA ROOM, brought to you by CORY SILVA and Midnight Productions.

Lots of good Gente are expected to be there!

I would encourage the Gente to join me and make a trip back to the east side for a good night of music & dancing with some old friends in a good spot‘«™.how do we know it's going to be good?

Because CORY SILVA said so‘«™and I never known him to lie!
