The Official Happy Hour “Screw” Kazoo!

The KAZOO as we know it today was designed and built by Alabama Vest and Thaddeus Von Clegg in Macon, Georgia In the early 1840's. In 1852 it was exhibited at the Georgia State Fair and was later manufactured under the name, because of its shape, "DOWN SOUTH SUBMARINE". It soon became the favorite of children and street musicians and then found its way into JAZZ, JUG and HILLBILLY bands. The KAZOO is the ONLY "ALL AMERICAN" MUSICAL INSTRUMENT.

Note for Happy Hour newbees! No excuses now....when John Morgan requests his audience, to "bring your Kazoos"....this is what the Official "Screw" Kazoo looks like...don't be fooled by imitations! Not only can you screw the top off to replace membranes....but I've been told a screen can be substituted if you want to also get dual use as a dope pipe...who would have thought!!! Cheers, HHParrot

Will the real “Papa” Hemmingway Please Stand Up?

It’s that time of the year again in wild and wonderful Key West, Florida! July 19 thru 24, 2011 marks the 31st Annual “Papa Hemmingway” look-a-like contest held at Sloppy Joe’s Bar! An estimated 125 will be competing this year! Good luck guys!!! Cheers, HHParrot

Where is John Morgan?…Do You See Him Yet?

Where is John….?????

Just some of John’s fans “hanging out” and wondering where he’s playing? Best I’ve learned…”all summer long,” he’ll be playing at these two locations on Cape Cod:

Friday’s at 7 pm…at Ocean’s Bar on Ocean St. in Hyannis

Sunday’s 8-10 pm…at Jake Rooney’s on Rt. 28 in Harwich Port

Suggest you call to double check on timing, etc. if you’re planning on driving a long distance. And don’t forget girls…they may have a dress code….so pull em up, at least to get in the door!!!  What’s summer without a John Morgan Happy Hour! HHParrot
