Hope all of you are doing well! Here’s what I have for you this month.
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.
Our Open mic on September 12 at Brew and Brats at Arbor Hill, an eatery and entertainment center behind the Arbor Hill Winery & Grapery was memorable! We’d like to thank Jack Jones, Kendall Paul Wilt, Fran Cary, Duncan Walls, and Jimmy Gleason for contributing some great tunes to make the night a splendid one! Our next regular show at Brew and Brats will be on October 11. The “Mando Master,” Perry Cleaveland, will be joining us for this show with his mandolin and fiddle. Details for this show are at the end of this message. Whether we are running an open mic or playing a regular show, Brew and Brats is always a good time! Hope you can Join Siobhan, Perry, and me on October 11!
As always, thanks for supporting original music! The “Singer/Songwriter in the Side Room” series at Buffalo Bill’s is going well, and we have moved to two shows a month, the first and third Thursdays. Since my last general update, we have had two shows in the “Side Room,” Marc Black on September 18 and Tom Whitmore on October 1. Below is a video from each show:
”When the Earth Was Big”
Rick Hoyt, Perry Cleaveland, and Doug Henry will be our guest on October 16, and Cathy and John Cadley will be our guests on Nov. 6. Stay tuned for more details about these shows in my upcoming post. Hope you can join us for these shows!
For those of you who follow us at Rio Tomatlan, we’d like to give you an update. Rio sustained a fire in late May. The restaurant suffered a great deal of damage, and Rio will be reopening at its new location in Canandaigua at 106 Bemix Street, the previous site of the Lumber Yard. Before Rio reopens, however, the old Lumber Yard will need some major renovation, and the new Rio will most likely not open until this fall. Back on August 10, Siobhan, Perry Cleaveland, and I played at a benefit to help the workers at Rio Tomatlan. Buffalo Bill’s offered its restaurant as a location for the benefit. Well, it was a grand time and very successful! Rafael Guevara, the owner, hopes to reopen Rio Tomatlan sometime in November. Stay tuned for another update in early November!
For those of you who like traditional Irish music, here is a little heads-up regarding a great little happening every Sunday Afternoon in Rochester. From Noon to …, John Michael Ryan conducts a traditional session around one of the tables at Sheridan’s Pub. Sometime in the early evening, the session turns into an Americana session. Whether you are a player or a listener, it’s a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon or evening. Siobhan and I catch the sessions whenever we can, and it’s always a good time! Check it out if you get a chance! You won’t be disappointed!
Well, have to go for now. Below is a list of some of our upcoming dates. Hope to catch you at a show! Take care!
All the best,
Siobhan and Frank
