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.

KJ Farrell’s/XO Wine & Chocolate

Posted on Saturday, April 27th, 2013 by Pat

X-Session has a pair of gigs the weekend of May 3rd/4th.

On Friday, May 3rd, we’re at KJ Farrell’s, 242 Pettit Ave., in Bellmore. And while Mike Quadrino will be with us on alto sax, we won’t have the full horn section with us this time around. We start at 7 and end about 9:30, and a Jerry Garcia tribute band goes on about an hour after us.

On Saturday the 4th, we are returning to XO Wine & Chocolate Lounge, 69 Wall St., Huntington. This is an “almost unplugged” gig as we turn down the volume and go mostly acoustic and seated. We start at 9 and play until midnite, although the last time here we enjoyed the format so much we played until 1 AM so, one never knows.

And I’m still playing solo every Thursday evening at Greek Delight, 2601 Merrick Rd, Bellmore starting at 6:30 PM.

Have a great week.


KJ Farrell’s

Posted on Sunday, April 7th, 2013 by Pat

We get back to work this Friday night, April 11, at KJ Farrell’s, 242 Pettit Ave., Bellmore. We’ll play from 7 until 9:30, and Hot Blooded, a Foreigner tribute band, goes on after us. Alto sax-man Mike Quadrino and possibly a trumpet player-to-be-named later will be joining us for part of the set this night as well.

A week later, Friday April 18, we have a happy hour at Napper Tandy’s, 15 E Main St, Smithtown, at 7:30 PM.

And please like us on facebook if you’ve yet to do so. It’s easy, just visit facebook.com/xsessionmusic and click on the “like” button.
