Anni Blog April 3, 2017

Hello to All! Wrapping my mind around April after a FOOLISH snow storm here in my neck o’ the woods… at least it’s melting fairly quickly. My heart goes out to those affected by tornadoes & mudslides in other parts of the country, the world… in light of all that, we got it easy here. In addition to a number of assisted living & nursing home facilities this month, I’m playing 3 of my fave venues: JJ’s in OOB (4/7), Lenny’s in Westbrook (4/13) & Toddy Brook in N Yarmouth (4/14). I only list the “public” venues… here’s all the news, in this order:

1. THE APRIL / MAY SHORT LIST (Date, Venue, Time Only)
2. TARGET GIGS (Full Details)
3. CURRENT CEREBRAL WANDERINGS
4. PERFORMANCE SCHEDULE



1. THE APRIL / MAY SHORT LIST (Date, Venue, Time Only)

FRI, APRIL 7 / JJ’s / Old Orchard Beach ME / 6:30PM
THURS, APRIL 13 / Lenny’s / Westbrook ME / 7PM
FRI, APRIL 14 / Toddy Brook / N Yarmouth ME / 6PM
FRI, MAY 5 / Ocean Pizza / Old Orchard Beach ME / 7PM

FRI, MAY 19 / Biddeford-Saco Golf Club / Saco ME / 6:30PM
THURS / MAY 25 / Lenny’s / Westbrook ME / 7PM



2. TARGET GIGS (Full Details)

FRIDAY / APRIL 7th / JJ’S EATERY / OLD ORCHARD BEACH ME / 6:30PM / 207-934-0222… have you BEEN HERE yet? This is a fave year round hang for the locals, including yours truly. I play every other 1st Friday & I always arrive with bells on, as they say. It’s an all ages friendly venue with great food & beverages… a fun spot to celebrate anything, everything or nothing at all! I suggest y’all come early & stay late… Here’s their website.

THURSDAY / APRIL 13th (& MAY 25th) / LENNY’S / WESTBROOK ME / 7PM / 207-591-0117… Lenny’s is on Rt. 302 at the old Al Hawkes Plaza… you know, with the guy out front swinging a tool box? Bill Umbel created this eclectic, down-to-earth venue, named it in honor of the late, great Lenny Breau & he’s booking a line up of some of the best acoustic players around…. so happy to be joining the family! Remember the old Raoul’s on Forest Ave in Portland? (Heck, I had 3 CD Release parties there… STILL MISS IT!) Well, I told Bill that Lenny’s reminds me of “a small Raoul’s”… the vibe here pulls you in & hugs you… feels like home. Grab some pals & head over… bring your appetite for food & music both. Here’s a link to Lenny’s.

FRIDAY / APRIL 14th (& MAY 12th) / TODDY BROOK GOLF COURSE / N YARMOUTH ME / 6PM / 207-829-5100… EVERY TIME I play here we all have such a great time! In 2017, I’ll be playing EVERY 2nd FRIDAY, every month. I’m a Yarmouth native… this spot is just over the town line in N Yarmouth, but it feels like Yarmouth to me. The food’s great, the view’s inspiring, the people are wicked friendly & my voice floats nicely in this room. FEB. 10th is a FULL MOON, so views will be especially enticing… consider calling in a reservation… I’ve seen some pretty packed nights in here! Here’s the Toddy Brook website.

FRIDAY / MAY 5th / OCEAN PIZZA / OLD ORCHARD BEACH ME / 7PM / 207-934-2900… one of several close-to-my-home faves; yet THIS ONE has one feature that all the others do not… Pam (the owner & French chef extraordinaire) will NOT allow any cover tunes to be played here! Yep, you read that right, folks… it’s ALL ANNI TUNES here… which is brilliant in so many ways… but for ME? I get to run through my catalogue of originals, dust off the ones in the library that may be on the back burner of my brain & re-experience all those songs I haven’t been performing in rooms where covers need to be part of the mix. Fabulous idea & so much fun. And the food? Pam stole her Grandma’s recipes before she crossed over from Italy to the US (lucky us in OOB!) If you ain’t tried it, the time is now… here’s their website.

FRIDAY / MAY 12th / TODDY BROOK GOLF COURSE / N YARMOUTH ME / 6PM / 207-829-5100… (see April 14th for details.)

FRIDAY / MAY 19th / BIDDEFORD-SACO GOLF CLUB / SACO ME / 6:30PM / 207-282-9892… I’ve been aware of this venue for quite some time but it took a while for me to catch up to the right person to land a gig here. I am certain it’ll be worth the wait. Spacious room with views of the grounds, great food & the patrons sure do like to enjoy life & each other. I was down there for a spell one afternoon & ran into all kinds of people I know… I hope you all come out for this one, my debut here. I got a feeling this is only the beginning. I play 3 sets, 6:30 to 9:30… come early, have dinner, stay late… here’s their website.

THURSDAY / MAY 25th / LENNY’S / WESTBROOK / 7PM / 207-591-0117… (see April 13th for details.)

3. CURRENT CEREBRAL WANDERINGS

This April snow storm we just had here gave me extra reason to sing my own lyrics… as a Maine native, I have grown to love ALL seasons, yet I confess readily to loving Indian Summer best. When shoveling in April, I sing this one to remind me “if you can’t handle the wintah, you don’t deserve the summah”… or in MY case “Indian Summah.” (Listen up, snow birds.)

“if you asked me to trade you the falls of New England
for a mountain of riches, my heart would say NO…
cos nothing compares to an Indian Summer
that can warm up your memories through mid-April snow”

OK… I’m not trying to rush things… I did note a brave crocus trying to push through the snow just outside my kitchen window this AM… lovely! I have sights set on spring & summer trips to fave places… & I am looking forward to bringing out the picnic table, outdoor chairs & putting away the shovels & the skis… (though both downhill & cross country will be alive & well north & west of me for a while, I expect.) Less layers of clothing sounds good to me! Bring it on I say…

As we move into new seasons, please know I am forever thankful for your tuning in to my ramblings, be they musical, lyrical, physical or all of the above. I’ll be checking out the scenery, sharing songs & stories & rackin’ up some miles in the coming months. My hope is that we can connect somewhere soon along the way.

Peace,
