OK, we know Sunny gets played all the time all over the world, but it was fun hearing Rocking Oldies' Ed Bowen playing "Sunny" after Bobby Hebb Boxed Set producer Joe Viglione was interviewed on 95.9 FM talking about the Record Expo. 11 PM 3-17-12.

Former Bobbyhebb.com webmaster Kenny Selcer tells us a local veteran artist performed "Sunny" in a Waltham, Massachusetts club this past March. We're tracking down the name of the artist...and we'll see if there's any video! Kenny told us this on 3/31/12.
Jazz night at well-stocked bar is shaping up neatly
The Jazzadelics convene in the back of the long, narrow room, and Damiani sits in the middle of this intergenerational band. Veteran master guitarist Barry Zweig is a harmonic and melodic treasure, spinning out melodic lines. Young bassist-singer Katie Thiroux and drummer Matt Witek (each working on master's degrees at Cal State Long Beach) provide the supple yet strong bottom end of the rhythm section.
Their book is full of standards: Great American Songbook fare, show tunes and jazz anthems.

More than seven million times on YouTube has seen the video of the Cro-song "Easy", a transparent meaning moving track about an ex-girlfriend, who cites prominently the classic "Sunny" by Bobby Hebb. In the video, a dark-haired beauty moved her lips to Cros-line, and the miners of the rapper, all played by women. "We thought about how to do it, that I was not used," said Cro with friendly Swabian staining in the language, "because I thought it was stupid in the video to appear with the mask."

Im Video bewegt eine dunkelhaarige Schönheit die Lippen zu Cros Zeilen, auch die Kumpels des Rappers werden alle von Frauen dargestellt.
