Hello from Rochester, NY,
HAPPY NEW YEAR AND A HAPPY, HEALTHY 2021!
♦ SOME MEMORIES OF 2020:
Actually, most of us would like to erase all memories of 2020… Among the many disappointments of
this past year was the cancellation of the Red Wings season and my 44th season as organist… The
absence of live music in clubs and concerts… The COVID forcing us to stay home watch TV by the
hour… Watching sporting events with empty stadiums… The bizarre Presidential election… Sadly
losing musicians / entertainers: Bill Withers, Kenny Rogers, Little Richard, Helen Reddy, McCoy
Tyner, Jimmy Heath, Charlie Daniels, John Prine, Ellis Marsalis, Trini Lopez, Lee Konitz, Eddie Van
Halen, Annie Ross, Bucky Pizzarelli and Johnny Nash.
♦ SOME THINGS I'D LIKE TO SEE IN 2021:
Quote Of The Month: "Quote Of The Month: "New Year's Eve, when auld acquaintances be forgot. Unless, of course,
those tests come back positive."
The country getting somewhat back to normal…Venues re-opening with "live" music … Crowded
Concerts… Roar of Stadium Crowds… Dinner with friends… A championship for the Rochester Red
Wings … Organists for all baseball teams… A return of the Rochester Jazz Festival…Republicans and
Democrats working together for the good of the people instead of their greedy selves…More variety
and less reality shows on TV… Newscasts with some good news…A downtown casino to save
everyone the trips to Buffalo and Del Lago… Finally, all of you to have a Happy, Healthy, Prosperous,
Love filled New Year!
