Site updated 11/21/2013
This is the season for transitions. And, believe me, this update is the start of a major transition. Don’t let the web site’s current appearance which now closely follows the format of the old site– fool you. Major changes have already happened “under the hood”. New software always presents a learning curve challenge and, if you’ve ever done an upgrade and found that a lot of your programs no longer work, you have shared the pain. However, a new operating system on my Mac (it was a move from Snow Leopard to Mountain Lion, not Mavericks) means I can run the latest version of Apple Logic for working up song ideas, practicing parts for an ever-growing list of material being performed with 27 EAST, and... shhhh... maybe even to record some music to share with my friends.
Any recap of 2013’s highlights must include the Rascals salute show from April and the 8th annual edition of the Fall Songwriters Concert I do here in Huntington. This weekend, while still a couple of days ahead, almost surely will be another one. On Saturday, November 23, I will be performing a set of music by Spirit and Fleetwood Mac with one of my regular partners in music, Melissa League as we front a band with some of LI’s finest as part of RetroFest 36, a Tribute to the Powder Ridge Festival of 1970. The event, as has been the case with every prior RetroFest, will be a fundraising event. This time, all proceeds go to benefit the Long Island Crisis Center. I'm putting it right here on the home page because I don’t know whether the interior pages will have been updated. This all happens at Who-Ville in Bethpage. Music starts at 7:30 and runs til about 1 am.
