Hello from Rochester NY:
HAPPY NEW YEAR AND A HAPPY, HEALTHY 2019!
▲ SOME MEMORIES OF 2018:
Playing organ at the Red Wing's games for my 42nd year and becoming the longest reining sports organist in the country… Roger Eckers & myself playing jazz each weekend for the great folks at Charley Brown’s... The great comraderyand laughs with our production booth people at the Wing's games at Frontier Field…A fun-filled vacation in Hollywood CA including a Dodgers game and revisiting all of Cathie & my favorite places from when we lived & got married there … The tremulous political goings on... The plethora of celebrities & politicians brought down in the wave of sex scandals…Sadly losing musicians / entertainers: Vic Damone, Aretha Franklin, Roy Hargrove, Marty Allen, Randy Weston, Matt Murphy, Harry Anderson, Sonny Fortune, Otis Rush, Burt Reynolds, Bill Watrous, Cecil Taylor, Nancy Wilson and too many more.
▲ SOME THINGS I’D LIKE TO SEE IN 2019:
More venues with “live” music that pay a proper wage to bands that deserve it… A championship for the Rochester Red Wings … A major boxing or UFC event at Frontier Field... Organists for all baseball teams… A trip to the Final Four for the Syracuse Orange…Republicans & Democrats working together for the good of the people instead of their greedy selves... World Series games that end before midnight…More variety and less reality shows on TV… A fulltime jazz club in Rochester with national acts…Less of the Kardashians… A downtown casino to save everyone the trips to Buffalo and Turning Stone… Finally, all of you to have a Happy, Healthy, Prosperous, Love filled New Year!
