Great Time at WXXI

Our experience at Rochester’s WXXI Public Broadcasting last week was incredible. The production of “OnStage” is first-class, and the production crew were a joy to work with. We can’t wait to see the episode when it airs.

Many thanks go out to all our fans that came out on a cold, wet, Wednesday night, and stayed late through the show and hung around for drinks and laughs in the WXXI reception area afterward. We’re lucky to have such great fans.

Stay tuned for details on the broadcast date as they become available.

Confirmed for WXXI OnStage

We’re really excited to announce that we’re part of the upcoming season of WXXI OnStage! http://wxxi.org/onstage/

Taping for our spot is on Oct. 26 at 9:00pm. Guests are welcome to attend the taping, and can arrive as early as 8:00pm.

If you’re planning on attending, please send an email to mnelson@bluefieldpro.com. We are allowed up to 75 people on our guest list.

Abilene

Thanks to all who came out to our show at Abilene in Rochester this past Friday. And thanks to the kindly patrons—it’s always great to make new friends. To those who haven’t had a chance to check out Abilene, it’s highly recommended. There is a continuous flow of top-notch Americana, Alt.Country Folk and Blues acts that come through there every week. Check it out.

A shout out to Jon Itkin, who kicked things off with a fantastic solo acoustic set. Jon moved back to Rochester from NYC earlier in the year, and what a great addition to the regional music scene he makes. Crafty lyrics, a deep sonorous vocal style, and heartfelt delivery. Check out one of Jon’s shows or recordings soon.

Many thanks to Nick Young, who put the show together. Unfortunately he was not able to perform, because of an ongoing battle with that nasty-ass H1N1. Nick is building his energy back up for his road trip back down to Nashville to continue work on his new CD. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for details on the release—Nick is an incredible songwriting talent and you don’t want to miss this new CD.

Oh, and thanks again to Scott Regan, host of “Open Tunings” on WRUR 88.5FM. We had a lot of fun on his Thursday show, and we hope to be back on the air again soon.

Park Bench = Fun Times

It’s not all the time that we play a new room and come away feeling as good as we did last Saturday. Thanks to Tony, Glen, and the staff at The Park Bench, Monroe Ave, Rochester. They made us feel right at home and our following really dug the place. We’ll post future dates there as soon as we get them.

This coming Saturday is Abilene, on Liberty Pole way. Coming soon is Johnny’s on Culver Rd and also a live taping at Lock’s Stock & Barrel, down in the Bristol Hills, Rt64. Some other surprises are coming along as well, including some new songs we’ve been working on. Thanks for all of your support!

Two Nights, Two New Venues

We’re appearing at two new rooms in the next two weekends! This Saturday night we’ll be at the newly moved and renovated Park Bench, on Monroe Ave. People are saying great things about this room and we’re looking forward to playing in the Monroe Ave area again.

Abilene, on Liberty Pole Way, has taken its place as one of Rochester’s foremost Americana music rooms. Their stable of regular bands is Rochester’s who’s-who of country/folk/rock. It’s got a very unique vibe and layout, and we’re excited to debut there on November 20th.

See you there!

Steve Waldo Benefit

Those of you that have been plugged into the country music scene in Rochester know Steve Waldo and also of the challenges he is facing. We’re honored to have been asked to play at his benefit/recognition show at the Roost on Sunday Sept. 13th. Thanks to the organizers, and we hope to see you there. If we get a confirmed time slot, we will post it here ASAP.

Summer Gigs

Its been a great summer so far. The Flour City Brew Fest had fantastic attendance and we appreciate the time you all took to talk to us during and after the show, letting us know how much you enjoyed it. Thanks to Larry and all at Rohrbach’s for staging this great event. Hopefully we can be on board next year as well.

Coming up next is a semi-private party for a couple hundred of Bloomfield’s finest on the 29th… then a Sunday afternoon show at the Roost to benefit breast cancer research… that’s on the 30th.
