from Rochester, NY:
Musical Notes & Sports Items…
▲ The month of August will be a busy one for me, starting with my playing 17 home dates for the Red Wings, hopefully heading to the playoffs, plus a few night club engagements. This, along with gearing up our music studios and band instrument rental business for the fall is going to keep us busy.
▲ The month of July was very notable for me with my 3,000th game as organist for the Red Wings and my band’s fifth appearance at the Rochester International Jazz Festival. Much thanks to Danny Labbate, Roger Eckers, Dan Schmitt, Val Columbo and vocalist Daisy for their great performances.
▲ Last month, Topps Baseball Cards put out a minor league set of cards featuring people who have an
affiliation with a minor league team. These are General Managers, front office, mascots, etc.
I represented the International League and got my own Topps baseball card. How cool is that!
▲ This month is our fifth annual “Costello Music Day” at Frontier Field. My teachers at the studio, band members and their spouses all congregate at one of the Frontier Field’s luxury suites to enjoy a Red Wing’s ballgame and socialize for a few hours.
