What it’s like ambushing Dave Coulier with his Full House TV theme song, then jamming with him onstage at Jardine‘s?
Most excellent, reports keyboard wizard Mark Lowrey, who did all of the above last Friday at the Plaza jazz joint.
"He actually sounded pretty good," Lowrey says of Coulier’s harmonica jam. "I finally got to scratch that off the bucket list."
Oh and don’t miss Lowrey’s Live at Jardine’s CD release party this coming Monday at Jardine’s
Everybody Loves Rodney?
Turns out not everybody in Lawrence or at KU was enamored with former KU tickets czar Rodney Jones…
Oh sure, many recipients of Jones ticket schmoozes – like the coach who got primo ducats for a porn star – couldn’t have been happier to kiss up to party boy when Jones played sugar plum fairy to their game day needs and wants. But that Jones went down hard in the ticket scandal many think led to athletic director Lew Perkins hasty exit comes as little surprise to others who had a different prespective.
"What I’m not shocked at is that Rodney was involved," says one source with ties to the ticket trafficing. "He was a snake – I didn’t like that sonnuvagun."
The source characterizes Jones as a divorced playboy who hung out with celebs like Danny Manning and lived about as large as one can live and get away with it in a small college town like Lawrence.
