Jon Hendricks was born September 16, 1921 in Newark, Ohio, and he grew up in Toledo. After serving in the Army during World War II, Hendricks attended the University of Toledo. But after finances ran out, Hendricks moved to New York and began a singing career. Hendricks is considered to be the "Father of Vocalese" and the greatest innovator of the art form. Vocalese is the art of setting lyrics to recorded jazz instrumental standards.

David “Honeyboy” Edwards is playing UT on Fri Feb 23 and Culture Clash and Hines Farm Blues Club on Sat Feb 24. Also on Saturday evening, Monroe's River Raisin Centre for the Arts hosts a blues concert that I think is still free.
(my Feb 28, 2006 post, regarding Jon Stainbrook leading the Lucas County GOP)
A good friend of mine played in The Stain, and I attended several of their shows around town back in the mid to late 90s. I ran the video equipment, so plenty of documented evidence exists showing Stainbrook's leadership along with a few other unmentionables related to haning out at places like Frankie's.

An early summer Toledo tradition. It's this Saturday and Sunday, 10-5. Artists, home tours, a vintage car show, interesting garage sales, and more. Good music throughout. The Collingwood Arts Center has an open house. That's a pretty cool place. The festival is a good time.

Only six years old and the Toledo Music Festival has already grown into a monster. The event that started as a one-day showcase of 30-odd bands in 1999 is now a two-day festival with a dizzying 110 acts performing everything from punk and hard rock to blues and hip-hop on six indoor and outdoor stages at Headliners.

A long forgotten Maumee landmark will soon be coming back to life. The renovation is moving along at the Maumee Indoor Theatre at the corner of Conant Street and the Anthony Wayne Trail. Work should be finished by early 2004.
