Hello from Rochester NY;
HAPPY NEW YEAR AND A HAPPY, HEALTHY 2018!
SOME MEMORIES OF 2017:
Playing organ at the Red Wing's games for my 41st 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… Performing with my band at the Rochester Jazz Festival… The annual Costello Music Day with teachers & guests enjoying a ballgame in the suites at the ballpark... A fun-filled vacation in NYC including a Knicks & Rangers game and the Rockettes at Radio City… The tremulous first year for President Trump…The plethora of celebrities & politicians brought down in the wave of sex scandals… Sadly losing musicians / entertainers: Tom Petty, Fats Domino, Troy Gentry, Don Rickles, Della Reese, Glen Campbell, Dick Gregory, Greg Allman, Chuck Berry, Larry Coryell, Buddy Greco, Keely Smith, Grady Tate, Al Jarreau, Jerry Lewis and too many more.
SOME THINGS I’D LIKE TO SEE IN 2018:
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… 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… Some new writers or comics for “Saturday Night Live" so that it can be a funny show again... Finally, all of you to have a Happy, Healthy, Prosperous, Love filled New Year!
