Miss Marcy & her Texas SugarDaddy's: News

DNA Blues Ball - November 24, 2007

The Innocence Project of Texas invites you to attend the 2007 DNA Blues Ball, an evening of music and enlightenment to benefit the wrongfully convicted.
Since 2001, 13 men have been exonerated in Dallas County after DNA testing conclusively proved their innocence. The proceeds of DNA Blues Ball ticket and merchandise sales will directly support the efforts of the Innocence Project of Texas in our mission to seek justice for those who have lost their freedom at the hands of wrongful convictions.

(Candye Kane couldn't make it to the show so they asked me to sit in!!!!)

Miss Marcy
Are you originally from Dallas?
I was born here, moved away, and now I’m back.
How long have you been singing? I started at blues musician Hashbrown’s jam at Lakewood Bar and Grill and the old Schooner’s 10 years ago. I’ve had my own band, Miss Marcy and Her Texas Sugardaddys, for a couple of years now.
How did you get started as a singer/songwriter? I’d been playing the DFW circuit for a while and Don O., Friday DJ for KNON 89.3 FM, said I could be included on the KNON 89.3 FM Texas Blues Vol. 4 CD if I had an original tune. So, I wrote the song “SugarDaddy” and asked my friends to record it with me.
What music or musicians inspire you? Traditional blues and Texas country are what I dig. I like grassroots music. The musicians that inspire me most are Hashbrown and the late, great Sam Myers.
Why the blues? Because it’s real. You don’t need a degree, an attitude, or an electrical outlet. Just some whiskey and soul.
Do you play any instruments? I play the piano badly.
What’s the most incredible life experience you have had so far? Both of my original tunes, “SugarDaddy” and “Restraining Order,” advanced to the next round in their respective categories in the 2006 International Songwriting Competition.
What’s the best thing about your job? It doesn’t feel like a job.
What are your favorite Lakewood hangouts? The Balcony Club, La Parrillada, Lakewood Bar and Grill, Scalini’s Pizza and Pasta, The Cock and Bull, and Lakewood Library
Favorite guilty pleasure? Going into Chocolate Secrets and pretending to be purchasing a large order just so I can feast on the chocolate samples.
When you’re not working, what do you do? Support live music in Dallas

Dallas Morning News Guide - February 9, 2007

I wouldn't be surprised if you haven't been able to locate any around town. Since the moment I saw 'Miss Marcy & her Texas SugarDaddy's' mentioned in the paper (p.30 of the Guide), I have bought every copy I could find! Thanks DMN for featuring my picture and my band on your 'Local Shows' page.

King Biscuit Blues Festival - October 26, 2006

It will always be 'the Biskit' to me!!! The audiences mourned Sam. Several bands paid tribute to him with their music and even sacrificed their stage time to have a moment of silence for him. Glad I got to be there to see him last year. The town museum has his red suit pressed and hanging in a glass case along with his harmonicas. Funny, when we spoke to the curator whom Joanna gave the suit, he said "That suit had to be dry cleaned twice. Did he have cats?"

Sam Myers - July 21, 2006

As ya'll may have heard by now, my good friend, Daddy, and all around hero passed away on Monday. The funeral was Friday and we take him home to Mississippi tonight to be buried with his family. I loved him dearly, just as much as any of us here in Dallas. I wouldn't dare say "more" because we all loved him profoundly. The funeral service was was the "Who's Who" of the Dallas underground. We are all going to miss you terribly. You made us a family. I have spent more time with Sam and the Boys in the last ten years than I have with my own family. I will miss all your funny little ways Sam. I love you. Thank you for being so good to me. Your girls are taking you home.

Summer Break - June 14, 2006

This is summertime and I am spending alot of time out by the pool, drinking whiskey and dreaming of cabana boys. You will probably see me out at night supporting some great live music. Check out my links for some of my local favorites.
