I’m making a second consecutive weekend trip to Massachusetts this Sunday, where I will be playing with a band under the ever-enjoyable leadership of Jeff Hughes – cornetist extraordinaire of the Wolverines Jazz Band. The occasion is on Cape Cod, where we will play at a rally of antique motor vehicles…or as the locals say, “caahs”.
On the three Mondays until the end of the month (August 12th, 19th, and 26th) from 7pm to 9pm we will be performing outside of the Hampton Bays Carvel. Feel free to bring some furniture if you would like to stick around for awhile. The Hampton Bays Carvel is located at 73 East Montauk Highway. If it rains on Monday, we will play on the Tuesday weather permitting.
On the next three Wednesdays (August 14th, 21st, and 28th) from 6pm to 9pm, we will be again be performing at the Ralph’s Italian Ices located in the Whitepoint Shopping Center in College Point located at 132-07 14th Ave. I can personally vouch for the Malibu Bay Breeze ices!
As usual, we will be performing our regular Thursday evening at Bonnie Jean’s Cafe from 6:30 to 9pm and, if all goes well, right through the fall. Hopefully, ‘Tuba John” Lovett will be subbing for Jeff on August 22nd while he’s in Port Jefferson playing something else. (Remember that kids, tubas are ALWAYS in demand!) Bonnie Jeans is located at 55765 Main Road in Southold. Fantastic fried chicken is the special on Thursdays, but everything they prepare is delicious. Their phone number is: 631-765-6766 or find them on the web at http://www.bonniejeansnofo.com/
