New dueling piano bar to open in downtown Greensboro
(by Dawn Kane, News & Record 09. February 2015)

GREENSBORO — A new entertainment venue will add to the growing mix of downtown nightlife in the 100 block of South Elm Street.

Goodness, gracious — the Great Balls of Fire Dueling Piano Bar will open Friday (13. February 2015) at 115 S. Elm St., between the Cone Denim Entertainment Center and the dance club Limelight.
The name takes its inspiration from the rollicking 1957 Jerry Lee Lewis song. It´s one of the most popular songs in lively dueling piano bars, where two players on separate pianos take requests from customers who sing along.
´It´s a good little synopsis of the fun environment we are going to provide,´ said Paul Talley, who will own the venue with area business owners Rocky Scarfone, Howard Dozier and Jeffrey Furr.
They see it as a way to create synergy among entertainment venues in the block, creating a destination that will appeal to a diverse crowd.
´We believe it´s one step closer to getting more people to consistently come downtown,´ Scarfone said.
Talley owns Limelight at 113 S. Elm St., which features downtown´s only rooftop nightclub. He also owns Arizona Pete´s and the Comedy Zone on Patterson Street, and Uptown Charlie´s at North Church Street and N.C. 150.

Hank Williams - ‘The Garden Spot Programs’ LP Receives Best Historical Album at 2015 Grammys

9. Februar 2015


Hank Williams — by way of Colin Escott, Cheryl Pawelski and Michael Graves — received the Grammy Award for Best Historical Album for ‘The Garden Spot Programs, 1950.’
Released in May last year via Omnivore Recordings, ‘The Garden Spot Programs, 1950’ hit record stores just weeks after a limited edition 10-inch EP of the recordings was released for Record Store Day. The full LP features 24 performances from Williams — performances that went unheard for nearly 65 years.
The radio shows come from KSIB in Creston, Iowa, around February 1950, but as Omnivore explains, the album’s performances are *more like being in the studio when they were recorded than actually listening to them on the radio.*
