Best wishes in this first weekend of the new year. Many recent Gotham blogs looked ahead and share resolutions and predictions for this year. Instead, I continue practice to share a list compiled and commentary posted to my website on the top ten shows I attended in the year just ended. Hope you find the list -- 1) John Fogerty and ZZ Top 2) The Richie Furay Band performs POCO DeLIVErin’ 3) Jeff Beck, Paul Rodgers, Ann Wilson 4) Glenn Tilbrook 5) The Eagles 6) Ro...
Interesting how time intersects.  So in last week’s blog, I released an updated Happy Holidays in song playist, which included a few extra Chanukah songs.  Some people provided links to some songs you’ll find next year (though I did informally add them pending placement within the flow of the existing list.).  In the week that followed last year’s blog releasing that year’s updated playlist, we attended a family Chanukah gathering hosted by my brother; I blogged about the mus...
I intended a blog about a show my daughter (Marisa Jean) attended in L.A. Friday eve and a show by the same artist that Fridays with Fred blogger Fred Klein and I attended last month in Roslyn. However, a review by Fred’s “muse,” Bob Lefsetz emailed last night inspired today’s commentary about both concerts by Poco founder Richie Furay who is in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Buffalo Springfield.  The shows featured performances of Poco's iconic first live albu...
Today please join me in celebrating two special anniversaries.   One involves music and 50 years.   Another not yet a decade but many people think much longer.   This eve, as some who follow Gotham’s music listserve know, the first of two anniversary concerts recognizing the 50thAnniversary of the iconic Byrds LP, “Sweetheart of the Rodeo,” takes place at Town Hall. I first learned of the tour featuring original members Roger McGuinn and Chris Hillman supported by Marty Stua...
A few nights ago, one might say Marisa returned the favor. She took her dad to see a show. A long time a-coming, as the lyrics go. I believe her first time was during the winter a quarter century ago. Marisa was not yet in school. Today’s birthday boy was but several months in First Grade. Only one of three shows I attended that year, all with a Poco connection. Two involved the Bottom Line, site of my first date with Shelly. Indeed, Shelly joined me at those two shows; Poc...
Since I first read about its impending return, and the closing of a similar rock venue in Times Square earlier this year, I avidly anticipated an opportunity to catch a show and the new iteration of My Father’s Place in Roslyn. It re-opened at its new location in The Roslyn Hotel on Old Northern Boulevard on June 29. Buxter Poindexter headlined its return.   I saw many great concerts among 20 shows I attended at the original site on Bryant Avenue. John David Souther, Chri...
Songs find a way to stick in my head.   Different reasons.   Stuff going on with politics makes me recall two great Manassas songs from their 2nd studio LP, Down the Road, “Isn’t It About Time” and “Lies.” I used one in a tweet earlier this month and kept thinking about the other whenever I used hashtag #Lies on any number of tweets this month.   Just yesterday – on the way to the gym, I call out to Siri while driving to play Hot Burrito #2 (HB#2). It came up with the studio...
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...
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...
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...
