Long Island´s North Fork: Maria Orlando Pietromonaco
(2012/COW ISLAND) 18 tracks, a fantastic solo effort of the Starline Rhythm Boys bass player Billy Bratcher paying here his tribute to the Pre-War Honky Tonk, Ragtime and Blues music! An A+ release and highly recommended!! Check also the Starline Rhythm Boys releases ´Red´s Place´(CD CIM 005), ´Live At Charlie O´s´(CD CIM 011) and ´The Masquerade Is Over´(CD CIM 014). ´In The Lobby´ is a self-proclaimed celebration of my twenty-five years in the hotel and entertainment businesses. Most folks know me as the songwriting bass slapper for The Starline Rhythm Boys. Danny Coane, Al Lemery and I have logged a dash full of miles playing some great, authentic honky tonk music. I´m quite proud of our recorded catalog on Cow Island Music. Some have witnessed me peddling ´Hokum´s Hair Tonic´ with my fictitious brother ´Stick´ (Woody Kepple), in our vaudeville style act, The Hokum Bros. Or perhaps in a juke joint in Texas or California with Wayne ´The Train´ Hancock. From coast to coast, we had a blast...but that´s in the past. Most travel these days is weekend, so I can be on the job Monday morning. The hotel has treated me fine. I have worked with some real nice people and met a ton of interesting guests. From Presidents on down, I´ve rubbed a lot of elbows, believe me. Don´t even get me started about the time I had to assist a bellman with handling Alice Cooper´s snake. A long story. Another guest I fondly recall was a fellow named Roland, a World War II vet from North Carolina and a member of the 100th Infantry Division. They called themselves ´The Sons of Bitche.´ They took a valuable piece of real estate from the Germans in France, Bitche to be exact. At a reunion party at the hotel, I had the honor of playing bass in Roland´s little southern hillbilly band. He said I was the most ´syncopated´ cat he ever met and made me an honorary member of ´The Sons of Bitche.´ I´ve had a 100th Infantry Division sticker on my bass ever since. ´Syncopated,´ now that´s a word from a different era. From a time where I envision myself as the house entertainer at The Ambassador Hotel in Chicago or the Algonquin in New York. ´In The Lobby,´ where the action is. The hustle and bustle, metropolitan, uptown, big time women and a two finger pour of top shelf bourbon from the lobby bar. That´s me, near the palm tree sharply dressed in my favorite panama suit, spreadin´ the sound around. Bellmen snap to the ´ting-ting´ call of the ornate brass desk bell elevator going up!!!
