"Singer/Songwriters in the Side room" Presents Connie Deming


This blog started out giving you posts of the songwriter’s notes, lyrics, and music for my original songs. As with many things, it has gone in new directions. So, if you just started reading my post and are interested in my original material, here is a link to my Songwriter’s Notes, Lyrics, and Music.

On Thursday, 5/15, Connie Deming will be our performer in the “Side room” at Buffalo Bill’s. Connie graciously agreed to fill in for John Dady, the songwriter originally scheduled for this show. John’s show has been rescheduled for November 20. Siobhan and I have followed Connie’s music career from somewhat of a distance over the years, first seeing her at McGinnity’s way back in the 1970s. She has played in many places, and most recently, you will find her at the Little Theater Café in Rochester on Saturday nights. Connie did a show for us back in March of 2013, and it was simply outstanding. With her acoustic guitar, awesome voice, and powerful, thought-provoking lyrics she captivated her audience for two hours. Her heart-warming stories, injected with just the right amount of humor, put her listeners at ease, and it felt like you were sitting with a friend in your living room. Here’s a video of Connie from the 2013 show. Enjoy!

Now, if you want to know more about Connie and her interesting, creative endeavors, here is a link to her web site. Hope you can join us for the show!

The concert is free, but we do ask for donations to support our performers. Siobhan has created two CDs, one for each of our two seasons. Each CD contains songs of the performers who appeared during that season. The requested donation for each CD is $10, and the proceeds go to the performers who are playing on the night of the donation. The CDs have gotten good reviews, and we hope they get passed around to let others know about the great talent we have appearing at this venue.

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. To learn more about Buffalo Bill’s, check out their site right here:

Scott Regan and Perry Cleaveland were our guests in March. To give you a feel of the setting of these concerts, here is a video of the duo doing one of Scott’s songs, "Blue Blue Planet."
