Took long enough!: Yes, the snow has become a distant memory in the minds of Rhode Islanders as of this newsletter. School is wrapping up, and for those in college, is done for now. With the sun shining people are making there way out into the world, and just in time for the next installment of our AS220 concert series.
However, before I tell you about that, I just want to give a huge thank you to George Garzone & The Fringe for coming down for our last show. Their performance was as legendary as the band itself, and surely something I shall always cherish being a part of. Many of you may be aware that George has a long history with AS220; he was there during its inception, has been part of many storied events throughouts it’s existence, and has been close friends with its founder, Bert. In fact, George and Bert hand’t seen each other or even had the chance to speak for several years, so being a part of them reuniting was truly a special thing and has semmed to rekindle that mutual appreciation, so hopefully we can plan to see George around the area sooner rather than later. Also, many thanks to Mark Medeiros for bringing his music and letting my group The Loose Ends bring it to life, and to Florestan’s Way for helping bring a night of great music. Truly a night I’ll remember fondly. Now, let’s make this next show just as good!
