POSTING:

Tin Monk. Monday Evening.

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.

Private Event: the DUO performed at a private event. "Congratulations Ellen and Ivan. My your last name serve you well! Thank you for choosing us!"

Bronx Zoo Boo at the Zoo: The DUO took a trek to the Bronx Zoo of all places to be the featured live act for thier annual "Boo at the Zoo" Festival in honor of October, Month of The Evil Pumpkin (cue: scary noises, lightning, wolf-howl). Specifically, we took center stage in Astor Court which has become a make shift "beer garden" to entertain the adults. They were activities for the children, of course, but they had things like corn hole and the like for the older folk. I was particularly amused during the festivities as our stage is adjacent to the Sea Lion cage (a small distance away, of course). After every song, I could hear a heart felt refrain of "ARGH ARGH ARGH ARGH". This, of course, is Sea Lion speak for "Bravo, your music is sublime, your abilities unmatched. Play on, Maestro!" This will be how I end every song. Anywhere. Regardless, twas a fine time, and we have four more dates during October, so if you're planning on going to the Zoo, shoot for any of those this month.

This is the LAST of no less than five (total) dates upon which we will be plying our trade in support of "Bootoberfest". Bootoberfest is located in the beer garden of Astor Court. I'd be lying if I said we weren't a little excited to perform at this internationally renown location. Being born and raised in the Bronx gives that extra little flare of nostalgia. We can't wait.
