POSTING:

Tin Monk. Monday Morning.

RECAP:

Corporate Event: the TRIO had a performance at a corporate event. All I'll say is "Congrats, Movable Ink! Here's to many more years of success!" Studio Squared is an awesome venue.

The Shire Pub in Delhi, NY. there was unfortunately a fire at the pub, and they've been shut down for quite some time. No one was hurt, and they are putting the pieces back together. We've decided to post on it in celebration of human kindness as a small cafe near the pub, the Quarter Moon Cafe, has given the Shire some space in their restaurant to help the business continue to make money, and, in tandem, keep their employees employed. HERE'S THE FACEBOOK EVENT WITH ALL OF THE RELEVANT INFO. If you're in the area, stop by and purchase a burger or two. We love you Ed and Sally. See you soon.

Private Event: the DUO performed at a private event. "Happy Birthday! You are truely blessed!" Oh, and the BBQ was fantastic.

Max's on Main: The DUO performed to a VERY captive crowd of fans and a slew of new converts by the bar. All eyes on us all night. What a fantastic time. Rich hooked me up with some steak, and it was relief and joy to see Harvey back in the saddle. See you all next month.

Newburgh Brewing Company: What a fantastic time the TRIO had at the Brewing Company as it hosted the Newburgh Illuminated 2018 Fundraiser. I wouldn't even know where to begin. We started at 1PM and performed until 4PM. We had an oppurtunity to perform with Corey Glover twice during the afternoon; once during a rendition of "Love Rears It's Ugly Head", and once more during "Everything She Does is Magic" to close out the afternoon. Big Love to Bridget Hayes, Eric Jarmann, and Paul Halayko. Here's to next years Festival.

The Acra Manor: The DUO headed up to Acra Manor in Acra, NY for what was ostensibly a last minute private event for a family we've known for over 6 years. Of course, we hadn't been to Acra Manor in nearly two years. Regardless, it was great to see and entertain them, and we love what the Manor has done to the place. See you guys later this year.

PRECAP:

3 Gig(s) this week/end:

3 Talking Machine/Tin Monk:

FIRST UP on Thursday July 20th the DUO return to the inimitable Cosimos in Middletown, N.Y. to continue our monthly residency. Another evening of spectacular food, service and coffee. A nod to our good friend Salvatore Mazzola and our fairly new friend (relatively speaking) Jenny Rielly. Show starts at 7PM. HERE'S THE FACEBOOK EVENT

NEXT UP on Friday July 21st performs once again at Andes Hotel in Andes, NY. This peformance will be in support of the venerable, annual Cans and Clams. Two things enjoyed both figuratively and literally. Our show time is 6:00PM. HERE'S THE FACEBOOK EVENT

LAST UP, on Sunday July 22nd returns to Mountain Vista in East Stroudsberg, PA. This has become and annual affair for us, and have been performing a few times during their busy season. The campground is one of the best in the area, and it's owned by some of the nicest souls in the business. Our show time is 7PM. HERE'S THE FACEBOOK EVENT

GOD BLESS

Work has officially begun on Talking Machine album #2. We are in pre-production. The album will be called THE WIDOW JONES. We'll keep you posted.
