Uncle Scotchy's Father. A final farewell.
What a great week! 1st time storyteller, Nicky Palmero, sat right down in the leather chair and told us about getting in over his head, a language barrier, and a plane crash he was in. Comedienne, Giovanni Neal, let us know about the behind the scenes goings on with her politically driven podcast/twitter alter-ego, @Blamegirl. Uncle Scotchy was next. He navigated the journey of dealing with his hilarious father's late in life hardships. It's a loving tale that you shouldn't miss. Closing the show was the hilarious Steve Lamm. It was Steve's second USSE story and he did not disappoint. His love for the Grateful Dead and the over 100 shows he's been too definitely gave hims some great story fuel!!! So, enjoy.

Rich crackheads and the Reaper
Hi to my nieces and nephews all over the world!!! USSE veteran, Marcel Salas, told a great one about being paid to play in a studio band by a super rich crackhead and their crazy journey to Nashville. Musician/songwriter, Chantel Dukart, was in town and told two mini stories back to back. The first was about some experiences traveling on the road and touring. The second was about living along on the beach and literally tripping out! Another great USSE veteran, Carlos Lopez, was up next. Carlos did not disappoint once again as he told a tale of playing in his high school jazz band and what life lessons it taught him. Comedian, Warren Scott, closed the show with a very well told tale about marriage, divorce, remarriage, getting attacked with an axe, and how to go to a funeral as the Grim Reaper.

He takes us through his journey of training to get better while living a, ummmm, musician's lifestyle. Finally, one of our own, Rio Chavarro, did a great job navigating through his story of being a young man in a touring punk band. The pitfalls are deep, so beware.

All that and how it culminated in a monster event that went sideways and how he handled it. Next up told his story entitled, "The Beastie Boys shaved my head." It was a great one about being 9 years old at camp and basically getting his life forever changed for the better by one bad decision that he made. It was Amarilys' first time even on stage, let alone telling a story in front of strangers, and she did great. She battled through her nerves and recounted her harrowing experience of getting hit in the face with a foul ball at a Miami Marlins baseball game! Master Storyteller, Mitch Grosvenor, closed the night out. His story about his adventures working on the set for the video of the hip hop artist, Goldie, had everyone laughing the night away!

St. Paddy's Day proved to be full on interesting stories this year. The Big T returned to the stage to tell a sexy tale not for the faint of heart. Who knew? Comedian, Steve Lamm, sat down and told some fantastic hitchhiking stories from back in the days that that was a thing. Celebrity appearances and colorful characters abound in the well told tale. Another comic, Nadeem Awad, was up next. Everyone loved his story of exploding tacos and getting pulled over while hammered and actually pulling into his own driveway. The back and fourth was awesome, as was the story. Last up, we had the great Brian Powell. As you will come to realize, Brian truly loves breakfast.

Double Trouble 2/24/2021
It was an epic week of firsts for the extravaganza this week. We had our first tandem story get told seamlessly by Temple Dent and his girlfriend Kara Nicole Smith.

That story happened three years ago, but now they just moved here and we're happy to have them:) Next up, the Miami/Cuban comic Regina Castañeda was up. However, her friend, Mel, was in town from New York so she shared her slot with her. Mel's proudly Nicaraguan and told a hilarious story about now some traditional comfort foods may not be so traditional. Regina went up right after w a hilarious tale of going to Cuba w her family, getting lost, and how the Cuban people really communicate! USSE Allstar, Rio Chavarro, was up next. His story of getting bit as a child by a venomous snake, growing up, taking magic mushrooms with women, and finally staring death down in the form of a snake once more was one of my favorite of all his tales. Lastly, Namdev Lisman, told his very first story on stage. He recounted his roots, culture shock moving here, the struggles of growing up, and how he was given, lost, and regained his name!!! He was a natural and we loved that one. Stay tuned to the podcast and stay Scotchy, my friends!!!

Uncle Scotchy goes from Jewban to Bluesman 2/10/21
Really loved this week!!! Gaby started it off with a powerful tale of all the many hardships she had to endure as a child, then into womanhood, and how she's finally in a good place. It was probably one of the bravest stories we've had yet and we were thankful to her for it. Carlos Perez then lightened the mood significantly with his very Miami story of growing up in Kendall and the kind of mischief that shut a whole place down! Musician, Alexa Lash took a unique approach to her story. She talked about her new song, "She's gonna be fine," what inspired it, and even played excerpts from the beautiful tune with an explanation of the lyrics. Great job, Alexa! Finally, Uncle Scotchy closed the show with the story of how his parents met, his Cuban and Jewish roots, and the tragedies that led to him becoming the Bluesman that he is:) Hope you enjoy all of these. Looking forward to next week's stories already! Till then, stay Scotchy my friends!!!

Hello to my nieces and nephews out there around the world... This is a special story about a special woman. My mother's battle with early onset Alzheimer's Disease and what it did to me and my father is something people should hear. If you have dealt with someone personally and directly who has it, know you are not alone. If you have not, this is a little taste of what it is like. Alzheimer's is treated like the dirty little secret that just about everyone has somewhere in their family. Telling stories about it, crying about it, and even laughing about it brings us all closer together. I hope you all enjoy the story and the song that follows. "Sande's Song."

Uncle Scotchy's Fart of Love 12/16/20
This was an fun one, folks! Uncle Scotchy kicked off the night going a bit low brow with a story about growing old, a first date, and a fart that resulted in love. Next up was musician, Taylor Davis. TD told a great story of being on the road and dealing with booze and a crazy tour manager in Jersey. After that, he capped it off with a little motivational tale involving meeting an idol of his. Paulie Mcpaulerson is a comedienne, and professional voice over person. (not an easy job, I learned). Her stories of her conservative mother, her sister, her amazing husband, and the lengths they went to keep things spicy in the bedroom were amazing! Last up was Travis the Voice. This guy is a truly professional comic and all around performer. Travis gives us a look under the hood at one of his most popular bits, and goes into his unusual upbringing on a farm. We let Travis run a little long that night because we couldn't get enough of his energy and honest insights. Enjoy and stay Scotchy, my friends!!! US

'Scotchy loved hearing about his adventures and you will too! Leetah Fay is a Miami comic by way of Missouri. Her stories about breakups, moving to Miami, and even having an addiction to amphetamines are freakin hilarious. Kevin Benoit is also a stand up comic. His story is about growing up coming from Haiti to America, what it means to be black, online porn, and a literally explosive chicken wing situation turned to disaster! Marcel Salas is an extraordinary bass player and all around musician. Marcel tells a touching tale of growing up in the sort of distant shadow as his father, who was a world class, touring drummer who passed away a few years ago. Beautiful stuff... Enjoy and stay scotchy, my friends!
