Hello from Rochester NY:
Musical Notes and Sports Items...
▲ The month of August will be a busy one for me, starting with playing 15 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 Red Wings will have another month filled with fun promotions and appearances including Brian
Gionta, the ZOOperstars, Jerry “The King” Lawler & the Hall Of Fame induction of Rich Dauer.
▲ A special thanks to Carol Testa who filmed our appearance at this year’s Rochester International Jazz
Festival. You can catch our last two appearances at the jazz fest on U-Tube. Just go to “Fred Costello
Jazz” and enjoy! Speaking of the jazz fest, we attended the George enson concert at the Eastman and
Benson sounded as great as ever. The only downside to his show is that the sound company that was
hired this year did a terrible job of balancing the sound at this concert & a few of the others. That’s a disservice to both the entertainer and the audience.
▲ This month is our seventh annual “Costello Music Day” at Frontier Field. My teachers at the studio,
band members and their families all congregate at one of the Frontier Field’s luxury suites to enjoy a Red
Wing’s ballgame and socialize for a few hours.
Quote of the Month: “I don't like country music, but I don't mean to denigrate those who do. And for the people who like country music, denigrate means 'put down'” Bob Newhart
Bye for now…
Listen to Fred at all the Rochester Red Wing home games.
The Fred Costello & Roger Eckers Jazz Duo will return to Charley Brown’s in September.
