Wayback Wednesday – Brown Liquor Music
Who remembers way back when during the holidays our parents and grandparents had house parties on Saturday nights and we kids would be running back and forth trying to say outta “grown folks business”, however, our ears were subjected to Brown Liquor Music?
According to the Urban Dictionary, Brown Liquor Music is played when you want to slow down and chill, relax and jam to the sounds of jazz, funk, soul, and R&B rolled into one hip glass of brown liquor with two to three cubes of ice.
The grown folks would be playing cards, telling lies while eating fried chicken, collards greens, chitterlings and other unhealthy foods and drinking from glasses that held something a lot stronger than Ice Tea!
I still remember the card parties in the 60s that my grandmother had in Mt. Vernon, where they played Pinocle and I heard songs such as these coming from the record player.
Let’s Chat: Do you have any childhood memories of your parent’s parties?
