Hello from Rochester NY:
MUSICAL NOTES AND SPORTS ITEMS:
♦ With the fall season upon us and despite the pandemic, we should (hopefully) see an increase in the night club action. It’s been a lean summer for live music, but there are signs of improvement with some restaurants and night clubs featuring live music again. For the sports fans, although they won’t be allowed to attend many sporting events because of restrictions, it’s still an exciting time with the culmination of the baseball races, the playoffs and the World Series. Throw in college and NFL football, basketball, and the sports enthusiasts will be wearing out that TV remote.
♦ The fall TV season is kicking in and I believe that the minds that think up new shows have been slowly running out of ideas. Just think of the ridiculous shows they've come up with the last few years; The Kardashians, Toddlers In Tiaras, Jersey Shore, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, Real Housewives of New Jersey, Date My Mom, Where’s Your Daddy, etc. There are lots more, but you get the idea.
♦ After 143 years, there will be no New Year’s Eve celebration at Times Square. Another victim of the pandemic. For us musicians, there will be a lot less parties & live music. There was a time when everyone who owned a musical instrument played on New Year’s Eve. Hopefully, when the clock strikes midnight on December 31st, we can put this year behind us and look forward to 2021.
