The wretchedly rainy weather suggests otherwise. Usually the warm weather we usually find – albeit not this year – signals wondrous opportunities to experience live music, often outside. So in addition to looking forward to attending some baseball games, discussions before, between and after my weekly weekend and eve basketball games involves upcoming concerts; we call them “shows.” Many performers take to the road during the summer. Several of my friends and I scan the c...

Friday’s blogger recounted this past Friday how Sundays prove a “tough beat.” But one thing the other bloggers can never, ever do involves special days like today. The other bloggers can wish ahead (or behind) but never, ever, express gratitude to the moms – our moms – on this special day. Heck, last year on this day, I got to Thank Mom as she approached a special number (It also linked to three songs for the day.). Two year’s ago today, Sweet, included a nod to the most...

One of the nice thing with more temperate weather involves hanging outside. I enjoy an outdoor office in these times including as a place to compose this blog. Of course setting up the office requires more than just a RE-opening: no comparison (exists) to returning to a summer (or winter) vacation home. Making it ready requires power washing a desk, getting out the umbrella, uncovering and cleaning the top the table that functions as a desk. What remained at ready: my fir...
This afternoon, Gotham hosts its annual Battle of the Bands®.   In contrast to discussions about politics that tend towards controversy and division, music tends to bring people of different persuasions together.   Some of my social media posts (I purpose avoid giving P.R. to either platform in this blog) invite “interesting” comments. Even articles I share on Gotham Political Listserve (Politics@GothamNetworking.com) engender intense discourse.   Not so when I post abo...

Just over was three years ago, Gotham lost one of its good guys – Jack Friedman who had passed away earlier today just days short of his 56th birthday. Fittingly because Jack enjoyed live music – we attended several shows together, I drafted a post to Fredslist and the Gotham website wall about his passing and the funeral and Shiva arrangements while attending a jam in Hicksville where I had arranged for my brother Rob in from Portland to play. His funeral like this blog ...

Vacations involve a bit of work no matter where we go. As I wrote about and retain an interest in siting sports stadiums (stadia?) I always try to include one on a visit. Since I enjoy clients involved in transit and transportation issues, I check out the issues wherever we visit. I also take advantage of opportunities to gain perspectives on current issues. This spring recess centered around a visit to our daughter who lives in Los Angeles. Instead on centering our visit...

Last night we celebrated 33. And we crossed an item off Shelly’s bucket list. The item: Rod Stewart in concert. Rod the Mod performed tunes from his catalogue including his Dylan cover (in honor of Fred?) Forever Young. The band members played a wide variety of instruments beyond the usual guitars, bass, drums and keys. At times a banjo, sax, mandolin, two violins, even a harp. At times three backing vocalists. Personally, since The Faces were among my early faves, St...
Nothing like live music; especially good live shows.   Already this month, famous for the "Ides of ...."  and how it "weathers," shapes up rather nicely.   On its second day, I enjoyed original Grateful Dead members Bob Weir and Phil Lesh ("Bobby & Phil Duo") at Radio City.   On the "Ides", no assassinaton but rather a celebration of two great talents, both members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with Traffic and Buffalo Springfield. As I tweeted that eve Dave Mason smo...
My enjoyment of good music remains steadfast. Those who know me best know my preferences (tastes?). Indeed leaving a lunch last month at my alma mater (same place for poli. sci. and law school) the question, what is Poco?, got posed by the distinguished ethics professor and the speaker my friend Sean and I delivered to the Mineola LIRR on our way back to Queens. A bumper sticker displayed prominently on the rear states “Induct Poco into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Employi...
