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.
