NEWS / CALENDAR INFORMATION

Hello from Rochester NY:

MUSICAL NOTES AND SPORTS ITEMS... CHEERS & JEERS!

Cheers to the Rochester Music Hall of Fame for including good friends Steve Gadd and John Beck in this year’s induction..

Jeers to the Anthem singers who sing the Anthem at ballparks like it was an audition for a gig in Las Vegas.

Cheers to Naomi Silver & Cheryl DiNolfo for working together to sign a lease agreement between the Red Wings & the county for the Wings to play the next 10 years at Frontier Field.

Jeers to Local Musicians who knuckle under to club owners demands and are playing for depression era wages.  Professional musicians need to get paid a proper wage for their performances.

Cheers to Hammond B-3 Players Joey DeFrancesco, Barb Dennerlein, Ton Monaco, Pat Bianchi, Mike LeDonne and Larry Goldings for keeping the Hammond B-3 a viable jazz instrument

Jeers to Minor League Baseball for instituting the rule to start extra innings with a man on 2nd base.

Cheers to Charley Brown’s Restaurant for giving Roger Eckers & myself a musical home for the past seven years.  We’ll be off this summer as I’ll be playing at the ballpark, but will return in September for our 8th year.

Jeers to Finger Lakes Casino I always leave there with less money than when I arrived!

Cheers to the Red Wings Production Group (Gary Sciarratta, Bob Witherow, Tim Doohan, Phil Andolina, Matt Miller, Rocky Perrotta & Kevin Spears) for making me look forward to coming to work each night at the ballpark.

Cheers to Prime Time Funk on their 22nd anniversary of presenting great music in our area for all these years.

Artists appearing in our area this month include; Taylor Dayne, Neil Sedaka, Christopher Cross, Dark Star Orchestra, Journey, Bon Jovi, Pittbull, Kevin Hart & Luke Bryan.

Quote of the Month: “Half the people in Hollywood are dying to be discovered and the other half are afraid they will be.”   Lionel Barrymore

Bye for now…
