Hello from Rochester NY:

Musical Notes and Sports Items...

CHEERS & JEERS:

Cheers to the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) for having their first event in Rochester on May 18 th . It also brings my son Chris, who's Communications Director for the UFC, home for a week.

Cheers to the Rochester Jazz Festival for having Fred Costello & Co. back for a 5th appearance including Danny Labbate, Roger Eckers, Dan Schmitt, Val Colombo and vocalist "Daisy."

Jeers to the Anthem singers who sing the Anthem at ballparks like it was an audition for a gig in Las Vegas.

Cheers to Hammond B-3 Players Joey DeFrancesco, Barb Dennerlein, Ton Monaco, Pat Bianchi, Mike LeDonne and Larry Goldings for keeping the Hammond B-3 a viable jazz instrument

Jeers to Minor League Baseball for instituting the rule to start extra innings with a man on 2nd base.

Cheers to Major League Baseball for instituting rules to speed the game up.

Jeers to Saturday Night Live for turning their show into a political manifesto.

Cheers to Charley Brown's Restaurant for giving Roger Eckers & myself a musical home for the past eight years. We'll be off this summer as I'll be playing at the ballpark, but will return in September for our 9 th year.

Jeers to Finger Lakes Casino I always leave there with less money than when I arrived!

Cheers to the movie Green Book A great movie of pianist Don Shirley, who I actually saw perform many years ago at Birdland in NYC.

Cheers to the Red Wings Production Group (Gary Sciarratta, Bob Witherow, Tim Doohan, Phil Andolina, Matt Miller, Phil Mercado, Rocky Perrotta & Kevin Spears) for making me look forward to coming to work each night at the ballpark.

Quote of the Month: You can take all the all the sincerity in Hollywood, place it in the navel of a fruit fly and still have room enough for three caraway seeds and a producers heart." Fred Allen
