Night Players Show tonight!


The Paramount Players will be doing a monthly "after hours" show. Starting at 8pm slt... we'll bring you the same performance quality we do at our Saturday shows, maybe a little more skin... little less costume. We hope to see you there.

We have two new acts and one is from our guest dancer of the evening, Bevin!

What's the diff? You already know what we present at the Paramount; Night Players will have some acts that are similar - but it will also feature acts that are more - Avant Grade - acts that stretch our creative wings - - push our boundaries.

Saturday Sneek Peek

Two more shows on Saturday! Funny Bones is a great show and you don't want to miss. Sure some acts aren't funny, some or all, are just awesome!

So time for a little sneek peek! This Players decided to get into her, fur and do something... Peanuts related. Come to the show and find what all that means!!

Here are some song facts for you to enjoy...
(from Wikipedia)
"Bad to the Bone" is a song by George Thorogood and the Destroyers released in 1982 on the album of the same name. While it was not a major hit on initial release, its video made recurrent appearances on the nascent MTV, which was created a year before. Licensing for films, television, and commercials has since made "Bad to the Bone" better recognized.

(from songfacts)
This is based on the Bo Diddley Blues song "I'm A Man." Thorogood is influenced by The Blues, and Diddley is one of his heroes. Thorogood's version has a much heavier guitar sound, which replaces the harmonica in Diddley's recording. Both songs are full of swagger, with the singers exuding lots of testosterone.

The phrase "Bad To The Bone" means there isn't a bit of good in him. Other songs have been published with that title, but Thorogood popularized it and created a modern Blues classic with this song. Some artists to cover it include The Countdown Singers, Molly Hatchet and The Starlite Singers. Hip-Hop artist Tek did a rap version of the song.

With MTV coming on the air in 1981, Thorogood picked a good time to release a memorable video. The clip showed Thorogood playing pool against Bo Diddley in a place where there was no chance of a dance sequence breaking out. Pool champion Willie Mosconi also appears in the video, which introduced Thorogood - and to some extent, Diddley - to the younger MTV crowd. Among the British New Wave acts that dominated MTV playlist at the time, Thorogood certainly stood out, and he created an image of a bad man. While Thorogood is a disciple of the Blues, he was raised in a Delaware suburb and by most accounts is actually a pretty nice guy, despite what he claims in this song.

This song was featured in the film Terminator 2: Judgment Day when Arnold Schwarzenegger steps out of a bar wearing biker clothes. It also appears in the movies The Parent Trap, Major Payne, Christine and Problem Child. (thanks, Ricky - Los Angeles, CA)

Humor is the tendency to provoke laughter and provide amusement. The term derives from the humoral medicine of the ancient Greeks, which taught that the balance of fluids in the human body, known as humours, controlled human health and emotion.

People of all ages and cultures respond to humor. Most people are able to experience humour—i.e., to be amused, to smile or laugh at something funny—and thus are considered to have a sense of humour. Though ultimately decided by personal taste, the extent to which a person finds something humorous depends on a host of variables, including geographical location, culture, maturity, level of education, intelligence and context.

Review of our Night Players show

Kat Feldragone came to one of show again and did a little review. (Speaking of, the sneek peek song didn't play Tuesday night at the show, the dj was having problems with the file! But all was good, the dance turned out ok with another song, laughs.)

Anyway, Kat review and a few pictures are here on the link below! Thank you Kat!! Kat's blog is a highly recommended read!

Night Players Sneek Peek

Night Players show is tomorrow! New show with new acts!

So time for a little sneek peek! this player decided to go a little...dirty....

Here are some song facts for you to enjoy...
(from Wikipedia)
"Dirrty" is a song by American recording artist Christina Aguilera featuring rapper Redman, taken from Aguilera's fourth studio album, Stripped (2002). The song was written by Aguilera, Redman, Jasper Cameron, Balewa Muhammad, and Dana Stinson and was produced by Stinson under his production name Rockwilder and Aguilera. It is a hip hop and R&B track which talks about sexual activities.

(from songfacts)
The extra "R" in the title is intentional. Nelly did the same thing earlier in the year on his hit "Hot In Herre" and the rapper Chingy did it in 2003 on "Right Thurr." The bonus letter is supposed to emphasize the title, not just screw up our spell-checker.

The song didn't get a lot of radio play, but the video did very well. It was #1 on MTV's Total Request Live, and most likely responsible for sending more than one adolescent directly through puberty.
