Paul was ably accompanied by Ralph Martin, on the washtub bass. Paul dem- onstrated his age (67), and memory, by having a momentary lapse when trying to remember Ralph’s name for his in- troduction; but, quickly recovered with ad libs. Paul sang two “works-in-progress.” “Hello Celia,” was dedicated to Celia and Joanne, and expressed his undying love for his departed daughter. He then introduced “The Doc Carlson Tribute Blues,” the fi rst performance of a ballad to a close friend. Other songs that Paul wrote and scored, included upbeat ani- mated tunes including: Bulldog Boogie (about a lover’s bulldog which did not love him); Ugly Woman Blues (ugly but accommodating), Nothing, Nowhere Blues (about a place to go when there is no place to go); Please remember your love for me, and other clever tunes. Jerry Mullins, who at 81 years old has entertained crowds in Quartzsite for decades. Part of the band, “Bare- foot and Boots,” Jerry sang “Pipeliner Blues,” and “Blue boy Blues.” The ‘Blue boy’ is a familiar, but necessary device for the dry-camping RV’er...and the au- dience enjoyed picturing, and possibly reliving, the pitfalls of working with the Paul introduced his musician friend, J������ 19, 2011 device! Paul introduced relative new- comers to the Quartzsite music scene, Sonia and Norm, of the band, “Sky- hawk.” They joined Paul and Jerry for renditions of “Since I Met You Baby,” and “Kansas City;” with Sonia on the trumpet and Jerry on acoustic guitar. The evening was punctuated by Paul’s spontaneity, quick wit, entertaining piano style, and above all, a phenom- enal rapport with the audience. After a short intermission, 99 percent of the crowd returned to their seats for the second half of the performance. Jerry, Sonia and Norm joined Paul in per- forming an encore, “Hoochie Koochie Man,” by Willie Dixon. The audience gave them a standing ovation, closing out an unforgettable night of getting to know Paul Winer and his musical friends! Anker Rasmussen of the QIA said that the evening was the most successful single-evening musical event in the his- tory of the QIA. The QIA has booked Paul for two performances on January 6, 2012. Paul will also be playing on March 19, 2011 at “The Party In The Park,” recog- nizing Celia’s Rainbow Garden Volun- teers. CD’s of Paul’s music are available at the Reader’s Oasis Bookstore.
