FANS should note that The Louisiana Shakers will not be at their regular stand at the Clyde Hotel, Carlton next Sunday, 17 November 2013, but will be back in full swing the following Sunday, the 24th.
In the meantime, here’s a clip of The Shakers, with guest sit-in Bob Whetstone on trumpet and vocals, playing One Sweet Letter From You a few weeks ago – 3 November actually.
By the way, One Sweet Letter from You was co-written by that prolific composer Harry Warren. His co-composers were Lew Brown and Sidney Clare, and the song was first released in 1927 sung by Annette Hanshaw. And while we’re on this trivia trip, did you know that Harry Warren was born Salvatore Antonio Guaragna. His father changed the surname to Warren which sounds a bit like Guaragna when you pronounce it in the Italian way.
