As Summer approaches I traditionally look forward to posting a list of free concerts by originals artists. I viewed the Long Island listings and found a bevy of cover bands, many in rock genres I enjoy. At this time, I remain unready to lock in dates the way I might if I bought tickets for a show. I see no reason to list shows and possibly lock in dates for shows that might be fun but not something “must see” or “must experience.” Each year we lose fave artists as times catch...
Last weekend we celebrated 34. The actual anniversary fell one week ago today; I noted it in last week’s blog (‘Cause it matters). We chose to officially celebrate on the eve before. Interestingly, we chose the “events” based on an unplanned interruption several weeks earlier.   I scored “twofer” tickets for Jersey Boys on February 16 at the New World Stages but a manhole fire in the street outside the entrance canceled that eve’s show. We were walking down the south side of ...
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...

File this under "Canadian Cops have too much free time." From the HuffPost: Talk about a bum note: A Montreal man says he’s facing a $117 traffic ticket just for singing in his car. In September, Taofik Moalla was driving home and singing along to “Gonna Make You Sweat,” a 1990 dance music smash by C+C Music Factory. Y’know, the one that goes, “Everybody dance now!” CLICK HERE to remember. The 38-year-old Moalla was grooving to the beat when police suddenly pulled him o...
Next Sunday, one day following the First 100 days of the current administration, Gotham hosts its annual Battle of the Bands. Discussions about politics tend towards controversy and division. Music tends to bring people of different persuasions together.   Friday I posted the text of my presentation last Wednesday eve hosted by the Gotham Executive Group on “The Almost 100 days.” I enjoyed doing the talk and the Question and Answer period that followed. The comment...

John Sebastian wrote this catchy tune, “Stories We Could Tell,” found on his Tarzana Kid LP that not enough people own; more recently Tom Petty covered it.   The core chorus goes,   Yes, I wish that we could sit back on a bed in some hotel And listen to the stories we could tell   Most who know me know my love of music and fondness for a certain genre.   It shows on what I wear under dress shirts each day and on what I wear to the pool and the gym for basketball.   It ...
