Hello from Rochester NY:
MUSICAL NOTES AND SPORTS ITEMS...
▲ The month of August will be a busy one for me, starting with my playing 15 home dates for the Red
Wings, hopefully heading to the playoffs, plus a few night club engagements. This, along with gearing
up our music studios and band instrument rental business for the fall is going to keep us busy.
▲ Last month was pretty exciting for me as Cathie & I traveled to Hollywood, Calif. to visit with my son
Terry and his wife Kathy. I lived and performed in the Los Angeles area for about five years so it's always
great to get back there. This is also where Cathie & I got married. It was hot with four straight days of
100 or more. We went to the Dodger-Angels game and it was 107 degrees, the hottest ever for a west
coast game! Got to a few clubs and ended up one night at the bar in the Sunset Marquis where Terry is
bar manager and ended up playing a few songs on the piano. Also ran into actor Robert Forster, a
Rochester native who has had a fine career in movies including "Jackie Brown" for which he got an
Academy Award nomination. I thought that when I lived in Hollywood that the traffic was bad, but it's gotten much worse. Everywhere
you go is gridlock. That being said, we love being there and I'd move back if I could take my music
studio and the Red Wings with me!
▲ This month is our sixth annual "Costello Music Day" at Frontier Field. My teachers at the studio,
band members and their spouses all congregate at one of the Frontier Field's luxury suites to enjoy a
Red Wing's ballgame and socialize for a few hours.
