2. TARGET GIGS (Full Details)

FRIDAY / JULY 1st (& AUGUST 12th) / OCEAN PIZZA / OLD ORCHARD BEACH ME / 7PM / 207-934-2900... when the temps begin to warm here at the seashore, it’s time to get back to playin’ at Ocean Pizza! It sounds like a little diner thing doesn't it? Yes, there's a take out spot in the front... but the dining room is really warm, woody & comfy, with a bar & music on Friday nights... & GET THIS: the only music allowed is... ORIGINAL MUSIC! Totally cool. Pam, the owner, is a petite fiery lady straight outta Italy with some of her Grandma's best recipes tucked up under her sleeve. This is another splendid specimen of a local family run business with something unique to offer. Here's their [website].

FRIDAY / JULY 6th / GATHER / YARMOUTH ME / 6:30PM / 207-847-3250… an upscale yet laid back & earthy place to gather, eat & imbibe in local fare, inclusive of the music they offer. July 6th is my debut at Gather, set in my home town, right there on Main Street near the Rt 1 overpass. This used to be the Masonic Hall way back when… the stage where I performed several times as a much younger self is now an open air kitchen, where tasty, eye appealing menus are created 6 days a week. Reservations can be taken for parties of 6 or more… trust me, this place is always busy… so if you don’t score a reservation, come early to be guaranteed a seat. Here’s the [website].

MONDAY / JULY 11th / POLAND SPRING RESORT / ALL SOULS CHAPEL / POLAND SPRING ME / 7PM / 207-998-4142… this is a Benefit Concert for The Preservation Society at Poland Spring & one of the most beautiful spaces ever... your donation at the door helps us to keep this special spot whole & happening. The acoustics in this historic chapel are just gorgeous, not to mention the stained glass windows & the setting on the hill... this will be my 5th time playing this series… every year it gets better! I love singing in this space & helping to preserve it & the history of Poland Spring. There will be plenty of that yummy spring water around & cookies & other beverages after the show! Here's the [website].

THURSDAY / JULY 14th / GREENVILLE GAZEBO SERIES / GREENVILLE ME / 7PM / 207-695-2702… I have always loved playing here beside Moosehead Lake with the sun setting ever so sweetly on the water & over the surrounding mountains. This scene could be a summer postcard enticing enough to make one drive the extra miles to be part of it. I am psyched to be part of it again in 2016! If it rains (NOT!) we move inside to the Center for Moosehead History on Lakeview Street. If it’s a nice evening (which it WILL be) bring chairs or a blanket, a cooler with some summer snacks & bevies & be ready to sing one, dance to one, or both. Call the Moosehead Lake Region Chamber of Commerce (above) for furthers.

FRIDAY / JULY 22nd (& AUGUST 19th) / TODDY BROOK GOLF COURSE / N YARMOUTH ME / 6PM / 207-829-5100… This is a Golf Club Venue & Restaurant with a small bar area & lots of windows in the room where I’ll be singin’. When I played here in May, the place was packed & we all had such a great time, the owner & I decided we needed to keep doing it! I’m a Yarmouth native… this spot is just over the town line in N Yarmouth, but it feels like home to me. The food’s great, the people are wicked friendly & my voice sounds really great in here… if you miss me in July, I WILL be back on August 19th. Check out Toddy Brook [here].

JULY 23 through JULY 30 : FAMILY VACATION!

FRIDAY / AUGUST 5th / JJ’S EATERY / OLD ORCHARD BEACH ME / 7PM / 207-934-0222… If it’s nice out, I’ll be hummin’ & strummin’ on the back patio here! This is one of my fave local gigs. I used to play every 1st Friday, but now I’m playin’ every OTHER 1st Friday. I got snowed out once this winter & rebooked… so the consistency of our scheduling got a bit confusing… I’m confident we are now back to the every other month strategy. If you’ve not been here yet, I’m scratchin’ my head & shakin’ my finger at you! This is an all ages hang with great food & beverages & a fun, dedicated staff. I suggest y’all come early & stay late! Here’s their [website].

FRIDAY / AUGUST 12th / OCEAN PIZZA / OLD ORCHARD BEACH ME / 7PM / 207-934-2900… see JULY 1st (above) for details.

TUESDAY / AUGUST 16th / DRUMMORE BAY CONCERT HALL / PHIPPSBURG ME / 7PM / 207-446-7199... This is a TRULY COOL NEW VENUE! My friend & fellow musician Jackson Gay & his wife Jean purchased this building with a vision for all good things happening, mostly musically involved. Jack put in a really great sound system… my voice feels like a million bucks in this place! Between my musical sets, decadent pies & other gourmet desserts, coffee & tea will be available to make a sweet night even sweeter. The venue is at 516 Main Rd (Rt 209)… easy to find. RESERVATIONS are strongly encouraged. You can call Jean at 207-446-7199 or order tix from the website [here].

FRIDAY / AUGUST 19th / TODDY BROOK GOLF COURSE / N YARMOUTH ME / 6PM / 207-829-5100… see July 22nd (above) for details.

FRIDAY / AUGUST 26 / THE BIRCHES RESORT / ROCKWOOD ME / 7PM / 207-534-2242... this is such a lovely setting... Right on the edge of Moosehead Lake... an intimate dining room with a big windows' view of Mount Kineo. Full bar, great food & yours truly hummin' & strummin' from 7 to 10PM. Worth the ride folks... call ahead to see if there's space left there for an overnight stay. (Definitely make a dinner reservation if you’re planning on eating… tell them you’re an Anni Fanni.) If there’s no room to stay, there are plenty of choices nearby if you want to make a weekend out of it. There are some super hikes in the area with great views, moose watching, fishing, swimming, kayaking, camping… the list is endless. Here's the [website].

3. CURRENT CEREBRAL WANDERINGS


Full Moon Summer Solstice in Old Orchard Beach ME

What a wild & wonderful start to official summer… I “held the full moon in my hands” on the solstice down at the beach here in Old Orchard… then I was happily entertained by the one & only Dan Merrill & his partner Aaron (on sax)… I even got to sing one with them. There’s some really great music at the beach this summer & I intend to partake of it when I’m not hummin’ & strummin’ myself!

In addition to playin’ a lot of gigs this summer, I am especially psyched for a week off with my siblings at the end of July… something that we haven’t done since we were kids probably. You may remember we lost my Mom (“Lovely Lu”) just over 3 years ago. It has taken some time to put all her affairs in order, the last of which left us with a little bit of cash to split amongst ourselves. We decided that to just split up that money would be a little sad and anticlimactic. So we have rented a beautiful home on the edge of the ocean in the midcoast Maine area for a full week! Lovely Lu will most assuredly be smiling down upon us. We will, of course, have a big family lobstah bake one day & the other days… well, we’re gonna wake up & see how we feel & go from there. Sounds awesome, doesn’t it? I can’t wait; however, I don’t want to rush the days away… every day from now through the end of August will be spectacular, cos I live in “Vacationland” & I get to play music, ride my bike, walk the beach, climb the mountains, kayak & sail the lakes & the ocean, eat Maine seafood & produce & smile, smile, smile all the while! OH & then there’s September & October &… I just LOVE where I live. How lucky am I?

My wish this month is the same as June’s: I wish to see as many of you this summer as is possible, be it at a gig, walking a beach, hiking up a sweet, soothing mountain trail, maybe picking out a 2 pound lobster at a lobster pound… whatever, whenever… I am always so grateful that y’all continue to stay tuned to my ramblings. Please remember the sunscreen in the months ahead… I am fully awake & watching for you.

Peace,
