Meyer and McGuire Present Eva and the Dog Boys


Next Thursday, 10/17, Eva and the Dog Boys will be our performers at the “Singer/Songwriters in the Side Room” concert. The group, John (mandoboy, mandolin) Denniston, Tom (TBone, guitar) Farley, and Elaine (Eva, bass) Verstraete, will deliver a high energy show of acoustic and bluegrass music with attitude! When I listen to this group, the bits of my retinas that are still attached dance around wildly like little blue crystals! Eva has gotten the boys to agree to do their original tunes, and I am sure you will enjoy them even more than their outstanding covers.

If you haven’t heard these guys, here is a link to a video of them doing “Hard hearted” at the Smith Opera House

Hope you can join us on October 17!

The concert takes place on the third Thursday of every month in the side room of Buffalo Bill’s Family Restaurant and Taproom, 19 Main Street, Shortsville, NY. The show runs from 7 to 9 PM. The concert is free; however, we compensate the performers with whatever donations we can gather from the audience. To learn more about Buffalo Bill’s, check out their site right here:

Rumor has it that one of the local wineries will offer a wine tasting in the main dining area during this show. Call Buffalo Bill’s for more details.

Lisa Bigwood was our guests in September. To give you a feel of the setting of these concerts, here is a video of Lisa doing one of her songs, “The Ballad of Charlie Asher.” (Please excuse any noise coming from the kitchen. Sometimes things can get a little hectic back there.)

Meyer and McGuire: News and Music Schedule


Hope all is well with everyone. Thanks for all your notes regarding what is going on for you. I really enjoy reading them. The weather in the Finger Lakes Region has been simply fantastic for September, and I hope we can keep it going throughout October, especially since we have a couple of outdoor gigs left for this season.

Bill and Robin Mallwitz have been in the restaurant business for thirty years. On September 22, they celebrated this accomplishment at Buffalo Bill’s, and oh what a party it was. Siobhan and I, who have played music at Bill and Robin’s place for about the last twenty-five years, were honored to be asked to play for this occasion, and to spruce up our show, we had Perry Cleaveland join us with his mandolin and fiddle. The turnout for these two fine people was simply overwhelming, and the comments very moving. I commend Bill and Robin for striving to keep alive something that is dying in America, the “third place,” a neighborhood spot where people can just come and visit and exchange ideas freely. Congratulations, Bill and robin! If you did not get a chance to read the Daily Messenger’s article about Bill and Robin, you can read it right here.

Since I am on the topic of Buffalo Bill’s, I just want to give you a little preview of Eva and the Dog Boys, the group who will be performing at our next “Singer/Songwriters in the Side Room” concert on October 17 from 7 to 9 PM. I’ll have more details in a couple of weeks, but if you have the time, check out this video of them at the Smith Opera House in Geneva.
Here it is. Hope you enjoy it!

Well, have to go for now. Below is a list of our dates for October. Hope to catch you at a show! Take care!

All the best,
Siobhan and Frank
