  • The Wailin’ Jennys are Wonderful

    Last night, Lois and I went to see The Wailin’ Jennys at Tarrytown Music Hall. We don’t own any of their CD’s, and weren’t familiar with their music. So, what made us go see them? I’ve written a number of times about how much I love to see David Bromberg perform live. In […]

  • Suzy Boggus at Joes Pub

    We have very good friends who we get together with in NYC regularly. Both couples have crazy schedules, so we try really hard to make it work whenever we can. We had suggested Thursday, September 20th for a get-together. They responded that the wife couldn’t make it that week, but the husband could. […]

  • Jonathan Pytell Graces the Piano

    A long while back, there was a crew at CBS TV that were customers of ours at Zope Corporation. That crew broke up, and after having moved to different places, has reassembled again at CBS Radio. CBS Radio is a very small customer of Zope Corporation, but this crew has no part of […]

  • On a Girlyman Mission

    There, I said it, I’m not embarrassed to be a Girlyman Groupie. 🙂 I’ve previously written about my accidental discovery of this wonderful group. If you didn’t read it, you don’t need to bother, as I’ll summarize much of what I said there here, and provide the more important of the links here […]

  • Pat Green, Sugarland and Kenny Chesney

    Another long one… Last night Lois and I saw Pat Green, Sugarland and Kenny Chesney at Madison Square Garden (MSG) in NYC. We don’t own any Kenny Chesney albums, and don’t know his music well at all. I have heard many times that he gives one of the greatest shows, but that alone […]

  • A very Wicked Sunday 🙂

    If you read my last post, you know that the highlight of yesterday was going to see Wicked for our fifth time. In addition to that specific highlight, the day turned out to be spectacular in a number of other ways. Therefore, this post will likely be very long, and I apologize if […]

  • Can you count to 5? 🙂

    I just checked, and while I mention our obsession with Wicked in 2 (or 3) postings, I have never blogged about Wicked directly. I was surprised, but it made sense when I thought about it for a second. I started this blog right after our last viewing of Wicked. Last? Yes, for the […]

  • Girlyman

    No, I’m not looking to pick a fight with you. 😉 Girlyman is a fantastic acoustic group (well, they do use an electric guitar more as a bass, but essentially, they are acoustic). I had never heard of them. Once we locked in the tickets for Spamalot and decided to do a matinée, […]

  • Spamalot

    After our wonderful lunch at The Peking Duck House, we walked to Broadway to see a Sunday matinée of Spamalot. Eons ago, it was one of my favorite movies (Monty Python and the Holy Grail). Given how much I loved the movie, and in general Monty Python, it’s a bit puzzling (to me) […]

  • Curtains The Musical

    Continuing on with our wonderful adventures this past weekend, after dinner at The Palm West on Saturday, we saw Curtains, the musical on Broadway. The main stars are David Hyde Pierce and Debra Monk. We went because our godson was interested in this, we had heard that it was pretty good, but mostly, […]
