I’m so excited. Some of you might remember my stories about a group (not a band….we only had one acoustic guitar and a kazoo) I was in when a student at Elmhurst College. It was The Buckets. All four of us are still close…Bucket sisters. We’ve actually had a couple of wonderful reunions in a cottage in the Adirondack Mountains.
Well today I played the new Norah Jones song on a New Music Thursday on XRT. And I promised to post this video on Facebook. Turns out Marty Bucket (we were like the Ramones…our last names were Bucket…oh wait….the Ramones were like us. We did it 10 years earlier) aka Marcia Berry, is the actress/dancer in the video for Norah’s new song!!!!
You can see a photo of the Marty I met all those years ago at EC, when they show young family photos early in the video, and then there she is. Cutting veggies and dancing. Beautiful. I asked if Noraj was really there playing and singing in the room, and she assured me she was. They even had a piano tuner come in that morning. Marty said Norah was a real sweetheart. And I can vouch for Marty. She’s a sweetheart as well. I’m so proud of my Bucket sister!
