  1. Wow! The memories just came back one after the other! Many thanks for putting this show together; my first EBB was the 2002 edition at the House of Blues that Lisa was talking about–I remember the group doing “Wooden Heart”, and that Ben Weisman, who wrote it, did another of his songs. I went to the show after learning about it from Evie Sands, for whom Ben was a mentor, collaborator and friend for many years. Over the years, I’ve been to about half of the EBB events; a few years ago, when Art was having a bit of trouble lining up artists, I told him, “If anyone needs convincing, just tell them that Bob Davis will sing ‘Blue Suede Shoes’ (I have an original Carl Perkins 78) if we are short-handed.” I’m not sure if this was necessary, but it turned out to be a great show. Thinking about Elvis brings to mind a saying from the planet Vulcan: “Parted from us, yet never parted.” And to all who honor the memory of the King, “Live long and prosper.”
