July Newsletter

What we were up to last month –

In June, we played a lot at our favorite spot, Bakers Tap Room in Yulan.  We had a few very awesome special guests(Tony Penn, Bob Tellefsen. and Joe Granger, Stephen Fauble and Casey Jones of The Rail Birds.)  We also started building a fan base on the Pennsylvania side of the Delaware River by playing The 10th annual Honesdale Music Festival and The Milford Music Festival. The folks across the river really love us and we appreciate their feedback and support. Definitely looking forward to playing more in PA.
What we’re up to this month –
After a month of business in June, we are now in the thick of our summer gigs.
The evening of July 8th, we will be playing as a duet at Albella Family Restaurant in my hometown of Monticello N.Y.  Their food is quite good and the place has a very friendly atmosphere.  So far, their white wine,clam sauce has to be my favorite.
On the 10th and 11th, we are excited to be playing as a four piece band again, with Ron Rodkin on Bass. We start the weekend by playing The Arnold House on Shandalee Road in Livingston Manor in their BBQ Barn. The next day we’re taking a little trip to Clinton New Jersey to play a 7:30pm time slot on The River Stage at The Black Potatoe Festival.  We’re especially excited to be playing The Black Potatoe Festival because they focus on unsigned independent artists, providing a wide range of great music that’s beyond what main stream music industry wants you to like.  It looks like clear weather forSaturday evening and we’re ready to jam out!
The following week we are just as busy (if not busier). We’re playing River Edge in Mongaup Valley on the 15th, Hotel Belvidere’s open mic night on the 16th, The Fare in Honesdale on the 17th, and last ,but definitely not least, The Phillipsport Community Center’s music night on the 18th where we are excited to be opening up for RJ Storm and Old School.  This last show is especially meaningful to me because when I first started out as a songwriter the folks in Phillipsport truly listened to me and praised me in a very inspiring way.  I’ve grown as a musician since that first time playing there and attribute my new found confidence to those who supported me from the beginning. I’m very happy and blessed to be playing one of my favorite venues the night before we leave for our West Virginia tour.  We’re leaving on the 19th! That should be a whole different newsletter.
Blessings! Sara
