Hello from Rochester NY:
MUSICAL NOTES AND SPORTS ITEMS...
▲ It's March and that means that the TV remote is going to be working overtime. Baseball spring training has begun, the NBA and NHL is gearing up toward the playoffs and college basketball is headed for “March Madness.” Throw in indoor lacrosse, golf, a few boxing events and the wives around the country will have to wait another month before their husbands answer them or resume their chores around the house.
▲ I had to chuckle during the half-time ceremonies at this year’s Super Bowl game with the lavish production of Justin Timberlake and a cast of hundreds of dancers, musicians, singers, etc. It seems like only yesterday that the Super Bowl entertainment consisted of the local college band and maybe a couple of baton twirlers thrown in. Now it’s a multi-million dollar production that lasts longer than the first quarter of the game.
▲ During my travels around the country, I’ve had the great fortune to see some great comedians “live”. They include Lenny Bruce, Richard Pryor, Robert Klein, Bob Hope, Don Rickles, Pat Cooper, Joey Bishop, Lewis Black and George Carlin among others. Last month, I had the pleasure of seeing Sebastian Maniscalco in concert, one of the more recent comedians on the scene. I will tell you that he was as funny and entertaining as any other comic I’ve seen in the past. A must see if he’s in your area!
▲ Artists appearing in our area this month include; Justin Timberlake, Sebastian Maniscalco, Pink, Rod Stewart, Billy Cobham, Tony Bennett & Trace Adkins.
