The Waterboys

Sunday, November 11th, 8pm, World Cafe Live

I love working outside events.  We’ve been asked to work at The Three Stooges yearly conference, the Mutter Museum, literary conferences, and musical venues.  This weekend, we have a chance to work with World Cafe Live (one of my favorite venues) and promote Mike Scott’s new book:  Adventures of a Waterboy.  

I don’t know how you got through life in the 1980s and early 90s without listening to or knowing about The Waterboys – the heyday of the band.  But, if you did miss out, it’s not too late.  Go out, buy an album and give it a go.

I don’t even remember how or why I started getting interested in The Waterboys, I just knew that I thoroughly enjoyed their music.  So, when we were offered a chance to help promote Mike Scott’s new autobiography and get involved with the show, well, I could barely contain my excitement.  I still haven’t figured out how to express glee on a blog – would it be !!!! or *&$@ or wooooooweeeeee?  In any case, I’m thrilled – the books are packed and I’m ready to go.  I’m even listening to The Waterboys right now, prepping for the show.

***If you are holding an outside event and need someone to handle book sales, please give me a ring:  215-482-0704.    We are professional, courteous, prompt, and we love what we do.  I always take care of event booking, and I am there to sell the books directly to your audience.
