Hey Folks,

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 mySongwriter Notes.

If you want to listen to me and my partner, Siobhan, Practicing, here is a link to ”When You Were Cute And I Had All My Hair,” an original song on my YouTube channel.

(This show, originally scheduled for 12/15/16, was postponed to 1/5/17 because of a nasty snow storm on 12/15.)
On Thursday, 1/5, Gordon Munding will be our guests in the Side room at Buffalo Bill’s. About a month ago, Gordon was John Dady’s guest in John’s Side Room show, and this month Gordon reciprocated by asking John to join him. To add a little more flavor to last month’s awesome show, Gordon also asked Joe Dady, another 10th Ward legend, to join the group. These three old buddies from Rochester’s 10th Ward are coming together to present their terrific original songs in a folk, country, blues, and bluegrass style. Once again, there’s going to be some great singing and picking in the Side Room this Thursday, especially with Joe Dady being added to the mix. Rather than telling you more about these three old friends, here are some videos of them doing solo shows in the Side Room:
”Down Home Woman,” Gordon Munding
”Light the Fire,” Gordon Munding
”She Said She Loved Me Once But She Don’t know More,” Gordon Munding
”Friends,” John Dady
”Mind to Move,” John Dady
”You Bring Out the Peace in Me,” John Dady
”My Conesus Cabin Home,” Joe Dady

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 four CDs, one for each of our four 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 concerts take place on the first and third Thursdays 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:

Here is a link to videos of performers playing in the Side Room. The videos will give you a feel of how much fun we have at each show. Check them out!

Hope you can join us!
All the best,

Siobhan and Frank
