International legend John Ellison, singer songwriter of the classic hit "(She's) Some Kind of Wonderful" is bringing it to the table at ACE Adventure Resort with his all natural, low sodium, no MSG and gluten free gourmet blend of seasonings. Ellison is scheduled to perform on the deck of The Lost Paddle at ACE, Saturday, July 7th at 8:00 pm to celebrate the holiday weekend and announce a partnership between ACE and Ellison's Some Kind of Wonderful Gourmet Seasoning. The show is free, family friendly and open to the public. Ellison, born in a shack built from driftwood on the bank of the Kanawha River in Fayette County and raised in the coalfields of southern West Virginia, pursued his musical dreams and became the songwriter of one of the most recorded and played songs in music history: "(She's) Some Kind of Wonderful" was released in 1967 and gained notoriety with its catchy tune and lyrics. Today Ellison continues to perform on stages around the world bringing people together with music, and now around the dinner table. In 2001, John started Some Kind of Wonderful Foods to produce his own recipes and gourmet seasoning. The seasoning is his own blend, all natural, gluten free, no MSG and low sodium. ACE's kitchen uses Ellison's gourmet seasonings on all their wings as well as a few other food items on The Lost Paddle menu. Try the sauceless wings - they are Some Kind of Wonderful. Ellison's soulful funk performance will be followed by the local folk pop rock band The Parachute Brigade.
