Hello from Rochester NY:
Musical Notes and Sports Items...
▲ It’s getting warmer and the concert season is also heating up. Here in the upstate area this month,
we’ll be seeing the likes of Sammy Hagar, Brian Wilson, Michael McDonald, Josh Groban, Peter
Frampton, Zac Brown, Dave Matthews and Norah Jones.
▲ The 18th edition of the Rochester International Jazz Festival runs June 21st -29th. Headliners include
George Benson, Patti LaBelle, Steve Gadd, Steve Miller Band & Jeff Goldblum. Fred Costello & Co
will be back for a 5th appearance including Danny Labbate, Roger Eckers, Dan Schmitt, Val Colombo
and vocalist “Daisy.” We’ll be performing at the M&T Pavilion on June 24th at 4:30. I have a “doubleheader” that evening as I also will be playing at the Red Wing game at 7pm.
▲ Congratulations to the UFC and their successful sold out fight night here last month. My son Chris is
the head publicist and it afforded him the opportunity to get home for a week’s visit. Hopefully,
because of their success here, they’ll return next year.
▲ For all you music enthusiasts out there, at last count, there are 107 various music festivals
throughout the country this summer. From Jazz to Blues to Zydeco and beyond, there is a festival for
every musical taste somewhere for everyone.
▲ There are 13 Red Wing home games this month plus appearances by The Zooperstars, Bucky
Dent, Willie Randolph, Mark Kelso, Corbin Bernsen, BirdZerk, others to be announced. Add weekend
fireworks and nightly promotions and you have the baseball season in full force.
