Beatles Tribute at Jones Beach

Posted on Sunday, August 19th, 2012 by Pat

First off, on Monday evening August 20– which is tonight for a lot of you reading this–we’re playing a free concert in the village of Greenport at Mitchell Park, 115 Front St (Rt 25). They call it “Dancing Under The Stars” but, considering our 7:30 start time, perhaps “Dancing at Dusk Into Dark” might be more appropriate. Whatever. By any name we’ll play from 7:30 until 10:30. There’s a boardwalk area in front of the band for you dancers but bring a blanket and/or chairs for when you’re not. And naturally, being outdoors it’s weather permitting.

On Saturday, August 25th, we play a “Tribute To The Beatles: Together And Apart” at the Jones Beach Bandshell. We are privileged to be joined by Joe Kuhl, Mike Quadrino, and ex-X-Sessionite Joe DeJesu for this one. The show begins at 7:30 with Bandshell regulars The Lido Soul Revue and we’ll go on shortly after. ┬áThe Jones Beach Bandshell is on the Boardwalk near Parking Field #4. And in what is becoming the theme of this e-mail, the show is free and is weather-permitting.

Which brings us to Labor Day weekend. Which brings us to Claudio’s, 111 Main St., Greenport on Saturday September 1st at 2 PM. Which brings us to the fact that this show is free (though not the refreshments) and is weather-permitting!

Enjoy the week!


Michael’s Porthole/Black & Blue

Posted on Monday, August 13th, 2012 by Pat

On Friday August 17th we play at Michael’s Porthole Restaurant, 92 New St., Oceanside. Weather is not a factor as we play indoors, but there is an outdoor deck and plenty of seasonal ambience here. We play from 8 until midnite.

On August 18th we return to Huntington to play at Black & Blue, 65 Wall St. This one gets started about 10:30 or so and goes until 2.

If you’re in the Greenport area on Monday August 20th–and who isn’t– we’ll be playing a “Dancing Under The Stars” free show at Mitchell Park in the heart of town starting at 7:30. This is the area right off Route 25 behind the landmark 100 year-old Carousel.

And on Saturday August 25th, we’ll be at the Jones Beach Bandshell performing a tribute to “The Beatles: Together and Apart” with a bigger ensemble featuring the four of us plus Joe Kuhl, Joe DeJesu and Mike Quadrino. The free show starts about 7 PM.

Have a great week.


Claudio’s/Hudson & McCoy

Posted on Monday, August 6th, 2012 by Pat

A busy August continues this weekend as we head back to the North Fork on Saturday, August 11th, for an afternoon gig at Claudio’s, 111 Main St., Greenport. We play from 2 until 6, and the early forecast is mostly sunny with a scant 20% chance of rain (and that always means none!). And while we don’t return to Claudio’s again until Labor Day weekend, we have a free outdoor concert at the Carousel in Greenport on Monday night August 20th!

This Sunday evening August 12th we have a recently-added (hence not yet on the website) date at Hudson & McCoy, 340 Woodcleft Ave, Freeport–aka the Nautical Mile. This one starts late in the afternoon–5 PM–and we play until 9.

Looking ahead, we’re at Michael’s Porthole in East Rockaway on Friday evening August 17th, and at Black & Blue in Huntington on Saturday the 18th. Also, there’s the aforementioned concert in Greenport on Monday the 20th and our Beatles Tribute at Jones Beach on Saturday the 25th. ┬áLike I said, a busy August.

Lastly, I’m performing solo at Greek Delight, 2601 Merrick Rd., Bellmore, each and every Thursday at 6:30 PM.

Have a good week.
