On the Pulpit and Below the Belt
Matthew, Mark, Luke and Rev. Billy C. Wirtz? Not quite the same ring to it as John admittedly, but if the slapstick boogie-woogie bluesman had his way, wed all be waving arms and fainting in the pews of his House of Polyester Worship. Looking like Dog the Bounty Hunters slightly more respectable brother, Wirtz has made a career out of tinkling on the ivories and popping jokes about everything from male impotence to the quest for faith with W.W.E.D? (What Would Elvis Do?)
For frequent ticket holders of both the Blue Comedy Tour and Dolly Partons Dixie Stampede, his countrified, tried ´n true show often includes hits from albums Pianist Envy and Deep Fried and Sanctified. Tonight, the Reverend brings his message to the Bamboo Room (25 South J St., Lake Worth). Witness a 9:30 p.m. show. Tickets cost $15 dollars. Call 561-585-2583, or visit www.bamboorm.com.
