M’Lords and M’Ladies, the grandest of natal day swings is almost upon us. April 5, 2006 marks one hundred years since His Royal Hipness Lord Richard Buckley first made the scene. To celebrate this wild, mad taffy pull Buckley biographer Oliver Trager has assembled the greatest collection of Buckley interpreters the sweet, green sphere has ever seen. They will dazzle the populance on Friday April 7, 2006 at the Bowery Poetry Club in New York City. The evening features performers Tom Calagna, David Amram, Steven Ben Israel. Rony Clanton, Richard Corey, John Kruth, Oliver Trager, and Robert Dick. There will also be excerpts from Michael Monteleone's in progress Buckley documentary film “Too Hip For the Room” and, rumor has it, Lord Buckley's daughter, Lady Laurie Buckley, will grace the event with her regal and swingin' presence. Click here to see how you can help make this happen.
Those of you on the west coast of the Cherryland should check out the celebration in His Lordship’s home town Tuolumne. Click here for details

Make it, Jude !!!
