Hello from Rochester NY:

MUSICAL NOTES AND SPORTS ITEMS:

A BLAST FROM THE PAST

I recently came across a Rochester entertainment magazine from the mid-70’s called “After Dark In Rochester.” I wonder how many of you can recall the venues and/or entertainers from that era?

Tiffany Lounge-Manny Mannett Quartet          

Gitsis – Dick Mullaney Band    

The Depot – Gap Mangione 

The Brittany Lounge – Joey Sands                  

Spur Of The Moment- Just Us Three               

Towne House – Ronnie Pascazi

Trebors – Mat Mathews & Ray Dunlap            

All Seasons Motor Inn – Dick Samson           

Eddies Chop House – Dick Jans     

Murrays Office – Cecil & Jenks  

Top Of The Plaza – Ken Purtell

Shakespeare – Debbie Chamberlain Duo

Arigato Steak House – Vic Plati & New Portrait

Elbow Room – Marguerite at the organ

Ben’s Café – Joel Dane & Julie Francis

Mr. Mikes – Joe Miltsch & Cappy Sexton    

Strathallan Hotel – Roger Eckers Quintet    

Brick & Nail – Sweet Feelin’ w/ Danny Labbate

The Cave – Barry Tee & Joanne Saurini

Pittsford Tavern – Bill Doggett

Fountainebleau – Russ Sanders

Maplewood Inn – Fred Costello & Co. w/Bob DiNieri

That was an era when so many of the night clubs & restaurants were featuring live entertainment five or six nights a week, from 9pm to 2am.  Certainly a great era to be a working musician.

♦ While we’re on this nostalgia kick, think about this:

Mickey Mantle retired 51 years ago.

Laugh-In premiered nearly 52 years ago.                

The Ed Sullivan Show ended 47 years ago.              

John Lennon dead 39 years.          

Elvis is dead 42 years. He’d be 84 today.                

Saturday Night Fever is 42 years old.

The Beatles split 50 years ago.

The Corvette turned 66 this year.

Y.M.C.A. was recorded 42 years ago.

The Brady Bunch premiered 50 years ago.

♦ Along with the many festival & sporting events, the Rochester International Jazz Festival has been postponed until June 18-26, 2021. Most of the headliners have re-signed for the new dates.
