Cosimos: While the DUO was excited to perform for the Cosimos crew and begin a musical "pre-show" for the wedding ceremony we'd eventually be a part that Sunday, the gig was cancelled due to inclement weather. While we've prided ourselves on showing up to work no matter the climate, we were VERY grateful that they decided to nix the event. We got nearly a foot, and the roads were abysmal. We'll see you guys next month.

The Wooden Spoon Saloon: The weather subsided, the DUO returned to this venerable BBQ joint and spent a fantastic evening with some very pleasantly surprised patrons. We left late evening with some top notch food, a pitcher of high grade coffee, and anticipation for next month's trek back. See you then.

Andes Hotel: As always, the DUO took thier place in the tavern by the bar to celebrate Hunting Season's opening day. We perfomed to an healthy showing of patrons, and got a chance to try out some new songs. We went home well fed, well caffeniated, ready to return to the Hotel AND The Shire next month. See you then.

LAST UP on Sunday September 30th the DUO returns to at Bronx Zoo Boo at the Zoo in Bronx, NY. This event spans the last weekend in September to the last weekend in October with a variety of entertainment, food, and animal events. We will be the featured musical entertaiment for all 10 dates. We'll be performing on a small stage located in the beer garden of Astor Court cleverly referred to as "Bootoberfest". 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. You will need TICKETS TO ENTER ZOO. The Performance is Gratis. Festival and Our Show Starts 12:00PM. HERE'S THE FACEBOOK EVENT.

GOD BLESS

Cosimos: The DUO performed in front one of the most attentive groups of patrons we've had the pleasure of entertaining in a long time. A fantastic evening had by all...especially us. We'll see you guys in October.

Andes Hotel: Unfortunately, the TRIO had to cancel our performance in support of Cans and Clams. Our first cancellation in 8 Years. We had some week, I'll tell ya. However, the crew at Andes was amicable and gracious. We love them all. We'll get ourselves squared away and return...this week!

Private Party: The TRIO performed in front of some of the finest people on God's green earth. Congratulations, you two. Here's a toast to many years together! Mozeltov!

Weed Orchards: It's been nearly two years, but the DUO returned to this exceptional farm and they debuted the stage behind the cafe at it's new beer garden. Well, WE debuted at the new stage...and I guess it's really not new since it's been there for awhile. What do you expect? We hadn't been there in two years! We didn't know! Regardless, it was a great time and we love the (new to us) space.

Max's on Main: As always, the DUO had a bonnie night at this inimitable establishment. We began with a small but attentive crowd coupled with a lot of "please turn down" by people clearly already suffering from hearing loss. We ended, however, with shoulder to shoulder people clapping, dancing, and singing. So, no, I will not turn down. See you next month.

Private Event: The DUO entertained at a private event. Happy Birthday, you two.

Cove Castle: The DUO returned to Greenwood Lake for a last minute addition to our weekend gig lineup, and got to perform on a small stage lake-side while the sun set by the bar. Twas a charming evening to be sure. Both of us in rare form, and the crowd jovial and attentive. Twas a pleasure.

Newburgh Brewing Company: The TRIO got a chance to donate our expertise to a charity event coordinated by Loaves and Fishes, Inc., a non-profit based out of Newburgh that specializes in feeding families struggling to procure food. The event was hosted by The Newburgh Brewery. All proceeds when to the charity, and, from what I hear, they managed to collect a decent amount of funds. God Bless you all who came out, and we were honored to have been a part. We'll not hesitate to do this again if asked.

RECAP

Six Flags New England: Awesome! The TRIO gave its first performance at this venerable amusement park, this arm of the company being in Mass. The gig was in support of it "Food and Brew" fest, of which I can only attest to the food which was fantastic. And as far as the Brew, it appeared as if everyone who was drinking was enjoying themselves.

While the trip was fairly long, the load-in a bit of a haul, and nearly 6 hours of performances, all of that seemed as a petty contrivance when compared to the fantastic staff, the giant stage, the musical freedom, and the myriad patrons. We had a fantastic time, and made some new fans along the way.

Cosimos: The DUO entertained the sexy people while also being sexy people, and got to eat sexy food also prepared by sexy cooks. It was a fairly sexy evening.

Max's on Main: The DUO (read "Cosimos" above) was sexy.

Mountain Vista: The DUO (read "Max's on Main" above and "Cosimos" above the above) was sexy in the woods.

Six Flags New England: The TRIO (read all of the above). Sexy. As an aside, it looks like we'll be going back to Six Flags New England if not this year, next year same situation. Sexy.

The Wherehouse ANNIVERSARY PARTY (TRIO)
Saturday February 24TH, 2018 1PM
119 Liberty St Newburgh, NY

POSTING:

Plattekill Mountian: The DUO, as always, had a phenomenal time. This was our last gig for the season, but we have it on good authority that we may have a few more gigs in the coming months. We'll let you know. Either way, we'll definitely see you next winter.

Andes Hotel: The DUO performed to a swath of eager ears and smiling faces as the snow fell over the evening. The owners took front row, center stage...giving a whole evening of hot and cold running banter; Joy for all. The food was great, and they kept us caffeinated. See you in a couple of months.

POSTING:

The Wherehouse: House: Packed. Food: Delicious. Special Guest: Corey Glover. Night: Sublime. See You All: Next Month.

The Wooden Spoon Saloon: Our sophomore performance went of without a hitch. Got a chance to see a couple of faces we hadn't in over a year. The food and staff were fantastic. See you next months.

Ale Mary's: One of those gigs we got from a friend of a friend. While it's rare to even get a gig in those circumstance, when it does happen, it's a crap shoot. Luckily, we came up...um...with whatever the good set of dice would be in that game. What a fantastic evening. We'd find out later that the usually fickle crowd was both surprised and relieved, which encouraged them to stick around. We'll be back soon.

The Wooden Spoon Saloon: This place is fantastic. We hit a bad patch of traffic on the way....which, upon retrospect, was to be expected given that we were in New Jersey. However, when we finally arrived and geared up, we were warmly greeted and well cared for. The food and service is fantastic, and the patrons like them some good music. We can't wait to go back next month.

Plattekill Mountian: As always, we had a phenomenal time. The place was filled to the brim, warm, and cozy. We performed straight through, and felt love at every breathe. See you guys next month.
