Saturday Gig Cancelled

Posted on Saturday, May 25th, 2013 by Pat

The lousy weather has claimed it’s first victim–Saturday’s gig at the East Quogue Village Green has been cancelled. The weather looks a little better for tomorrow, so we’ll see you all Sunday at Claudio’s.

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.
