Claudio’s/Napper’s Smithtown

Posted on Monday, June 3rd, 2013 by Pat

Sunday June 9th X-Session is at Claudio’s, 111 Main St., Greenport. We commence at 2 and go until 6. We had a great turnout here on Memorial Day Sunday in spite of some chilly weather– hopefully it’ll be a bit warmer this time around. We aren’t back here after this until Thursday July 4th.

Then on Friday, June 14th, we’re at Napper Tandy’s, 15 E Main St., Smithtown, playing our final Napper’s Happy Hour until the Fall. We play from 7:30 until 11:30.

We have a few additional dates for July not yet on the website: Friday July 5th at The Fishery in East Rockaway, Saturday July 13th at Huntington’s Black & Blue, and Friday July 19th at a new locale for us: Port Jazz in Port Jefferson.

We also recently filmed some promo videos with four, five, and eight-piece incarnations of the band. They’re not on our website yet, but you can check them out on YouTube by visiting youtube.com/roygbiv3737. We’d love to hear what you think and would love to get some suggestions for songs to do in our next shoot.

In other news, on Saturday June 8th I’ll be playing with “Innervision,” the band I cut my musical teeth on as a teenager and into my early twenties. This will be the third of what has become an annual tradition that not only reunites four old friends and bandmates but much of the Rosedale, Queens people we grew up with as well. This goes down this Saturday at Bellmore’s KJ Farrell’s, 242 Pettit Ave. We congregate starting at 5 and play two pretty relaxed sets ending at about 9.

Have a great week!


East Quogue Village Green/Claudio’s/New Videos

Posted on Sunday, May 19th, 2013 by Pat

A lot to talk about this week….

First up, as Memorial Day Weekend approaches (and with an encouraging forecast so far), we head out east for a pair of daytime gigs. On Saturday, May 25th, we will be playing the East Quogue Holiday Celebration at their Village Green–located at Lewis Rd. and Montauk Hwy.–in scenic East Quogue. Unlike the 90-minute evening gig we played here last year, this is a 2 PM until 6 PM affair. Also unlike last year, there will be vendors selling various refreshments so there is no need to bring your own (I keep hearing Chicago singing “…a man selling ice cream, singing Italian songs…,” in my head). Staten Island Tony Michaels joins the “core-four” on tenor sax for this gig.

And on Sunday afternoon, May 26th, we christen the summer season at Claudio’s, 111 Main St., Greenport. Those of you who’ve been here need no further explanation, those who haven’t really need to give it a try–it’s worth the trip. We play from 2 PM until 6.

Our schedule through July 4th is now up on the website: xsessionmusic.com, including a return trip to Claudio’s on Sunday afternoon June 9th.

This past week we played a few dozen songs at EKO Studios┬áin Deer Park, a state of the art video facility. We played several songs with each of our lineups: the core four, the 5-piece with Mike Quadrino on alto sax, and the 8 piece unit with the horn section we’ve affectionately dubbed The Windbreakers. You can view some of the results on Jim’s YouTube channel: youtube.com/roygbiv3737.

Don’t forget to check in once in a while to our photo page. Unofficial band photographer Eddie Profet posts his photos here on a regular basis. Just added are photos from our recent gigs at Napper Tandy’s and XO.

Have a great holiday weekend, see you soon.

Black&Blue/Memorial Day Weekend

Posted on Sunday, May 12th, 2013 by Pat

On Saturday, May 18th we will be at Black & Blue, 65 Wall St., Huntington. Besides having a spirited bar crowd, B&B is one of the area’s finest steakhouses. We start at about 10:30 PM.

Which brings us to Memorial Day Weekend. We have a pair of gigs under (what we hope will be) the sunny skies. On Saturday afternoon, May 25th, we will play a free concert at the East Quogue Village Green, which is located at the corner of Lewis Rd. and Montauk Hwy. We’ll start at 2 PM and play until 6, and this one is most definitely weather permitting. Of course you can bring chairs and/or blankets, food, and bottled water for the band..:)

And on Sunday, May 26th, we return to Claudio’s, 111 Main St., Greenport. As always, we play from 2-6 PM on the outdoor deck.

Finally, as we enter the Summer season and the outdoor gigs it brings, it’s more important than ever to “like” our page on facebook as any last minute weather updates will be posted there immediately. It’s simple, just go to facebook.com/xsessionmusic and click on “like” if you haven’t done so already.

That’s all for now. Look for the summer schedule on the website soon. Talk to you next week.
