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
