Where will you be on Friday Jan 12, 2018?

Longtime Crooner and Music Entertainer Extraordinaire, Slim Forsythe is going to be celebrating his 62nd Birthday.  Although, we had heard from a good source, Slim was given the opportunity to be celebrating in Europe, he opted to stay local instead.  According to our source, he said there is no other place to celebrate than one of the Premiere Entertainment Venues of Lawrenceville, Nied’s Hotel.  This was a very hard decision to make and there were many parties involved in creating this once in a lifetime event.  We were fortunate to get a media release wire from a local, famous radio network.  We will produce the report below, but before we do, we wanted to simplify the information to those that need to add this to their calendar:

Friday – January 12, 2018

7:00 P.M. – ?

One of the best parties to be held so far this year!

See Slim and Molly Alphabet in a duet for a Release Bash!

Media Release Below:


Music Industry spokespersons are refusing to comment publicly, but sources close to the negotiations, who spoke with the Slim Radio Network on condition of strict anonymity, have confirmed that the Keystone Kid, the Rose of Saint Kieran’s, Molly Alphabet, will drop by the Home of the Famous Fish Sandwich, Nied’s Hotel, to sing the NEW VINYL 45, B-Side duet with Slim, Down on My Knees at Nied’s Hotel Again.

After 72 hours of feverish negotiations, attorneys from both camps have reached “agreement in principle” on a deal that would grant Pittsburgh’s Tenth Ward Treasure a “one-night-only” contractual waiver to appear with Forsythe (and the Lily of the Laurel Highlands, Jane West) in the storied East Lawrenceville Barroom venue. Get Hip Recordings Owner, Gregg Kostelich, in a prepared statement to the media, crowed: “This is a Grand Slam! Thanks to everyone involved in the negotiations. A Molly Alphabet/Slim Forsythe duet is better than a vanilla milkshake with a side of provolone sticks!”

Date: Friday, January 12, 2018
Time: 7:00 PM
A-Side: The Ballad of Punxsutawney Phil
B-Side: Down on My Knees at Nied’s Hotel Again

Stay tuned for more on this breaking story including details of a rumored appearance of the Groundhog Himself!…

There was Miss Freddye, Stevee, Cheryl, Donna O, and of course Slim,

James Buckley got them together, so hats off to him;

The Kazoos filled the air, with tunes from their heart,

The patrons sang along, and knew every part;

Christmas was in the air, waiting for Santa to complete his deeds,

Everyone will have a great time, thanks to Jim Nied’s;

So don’t forget to show up, at one of Lawrenceville’s premiere venues,

And join in the fun, if you miss out- you will lose!
