The Important Fact Sheet

 

 

Go to the top of Bag #19

 

Hey 19!
Is Mulcahy’s a great Bag spot or what? The entire Mulcahy’s staff deserves a big thank you and a tip of the old baghat. I don’t think we have ever dealt with club management who truly understood the Bag concept like this. This is great. The new improved tentative songlist is on the back of this sheet. It is NOT IN ORDER YET! Vocalists please see Mr. Santoriello or Mr. Barca and sign up for songs. (1st come, 1st served) Instrumentalists must check with your Leader for song assignments. Late suggestions will be taken under consideration by the Executive Board. On run-through day (Mon June 24) we must end at 9:30pm so the club can open. Please be on time that night and be ready when you are needed. Everyone should be checking with your Section Leader so that you are kept up to date. Please get your ticket money in early.

It is official, Roast Beef Joe’s shirt is now a leading economic indicator. The Federal Reserve Board has been in touch with RBJ in order to set the prime rate. The scope of the Paper Bag is just amazing. Emma & Sara are now 5 and 1 year old. Emma just graduated from pre-schoolSumma Cum Laude. From all indications at this point, Sara will become a biker.I love my girls. As you well know if you have been around the Bag for a while, we have been using a Macintosh computer to keep track of the Bag since 1990. I can now be reached electronically at Paprbag@aol.com. I welcome all of you to send me your comments, ideas, suggestions, criticisms, recipes, complaints, song requests, original uncopyrighted songs, etc. Those of you who leave me e-mail will receive exciting, up-to-the -minute updates for future Bags, as well as a slew of other mildly entertaining drivel. This year the Bag features a battle between the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, some Joe Walsh, and War. We are once again looking forward to rocking the house with all of you. As usual, special thanks goes out to the crews at Rainbow Video, S-K Sound, Lightcraft, the ladies and gentlemen at Mulcahy’s, Walter Symanski for the tapes , my old friend Mr. Coffey at Goldman Brothers for his marvelous work and extreme patience procuring our shirts, and of course Dick and the guys at Supreme Trophy.
See Ya. Mike
PAPER BAG
WHAT A DRAG

The Savannah Joe Kommnick “Are these donuts fresh?” Moment Many of you in the Paper Bag community knew Joe Kommnick simply as “Savannah.” I had the privilege working with this gentle man in the clubs on the South Shore for over 10 years. Savannah Joe was a bright ray of happiness that cut through the smoky air and shined into your heart. He was always ready with a joke, your favorite libation, or an absurd movie quote . There was never anything harsh about Savannah Joe…none of the rough edges many of us who live the night life develop. I miss his company. In 1996 we inaugurated the tradition of performing a song each year that connects us with Joe, so that we may have a vehicle to help us remember this fine man. This year, Rainy Night in Georgia is dedicated to Savannah Joe. In keeping with Joe’s sense of humor, and to ease the melancholy of the moment, before we begin the song, We ask all of you to place an index finger, held horizontally, just below your nose and all together ask in a falsetto voice …“Are these donuts fresh?

THE BROWN PAPER BAG is the only thing civilized man has produced that does not seem out of place in nature. Crumpled into a wad of wrinkles, like the fossilized brain of a dryad; looking weathered; seemingly slow and rough enough to be a product of natural evolution; its brownness the low key brown of potato skin and peanut shell, dirty but pure; its kinship to tree unobstructed by the cruel crush of industry; absorbing the elements like any other organic entity a No. 8 Kraft brown paper bag lay discarded in the hills of Huntington and it appears to live where it lay
by Tom Robbins
Even Cowgirls Get the Blues
Thanks and a tip of the old Paper Bag hat to Naomi Margolin for discovering the origin of this quote

No one of the musicians or crew members are paid for these performances, we do it because we are having more fun than anyone on the planet.

1996 SECTION LEADERS
Many people wonder how this crazy, complicated show, with all its myriad details, ever comes together at all. Most of the credit goes to the Section Leaders who work many hours so that we can all enjoy the Bag. Thank them when you see them go by.
