Hello Friends And Fellow Music Enthusiasts, I have a gig coming up this Friday which could - with your attendance - make one damned interesting human interest story: Sometime last year I performed at a unique establishment called W A Meadwerks, a "meadery" rather than a brewery, so named because they specialize in craft honey-based wine, in multiple effervescent varieties (which don't taste like honey), guaranteed to surprise and delight many of those unfamiliar. But that's not even the story. Since my appearance at W A Meadwerks, the "Copyright Police" came down on this nobly entrepreneurial two-man operation in typically ruthless fashion, rendering Long Island's only meadery unable to host any live music act performing cover material. This signaled the end of live music at W A Meadwerks. Or so they thought. I saw this as an opportunity, and so suggested "Why not have me perform my originals there? That's something the authorities can't touch." The good folks at W A Meadwerks - all two of them - agreed to give this and me a shot. ...So, Friday August 25th starting at 6:00PM I will be rendering an entire program of original songs at W A Meadwerks, including a cherry-pick of some of my favorite songs by a friend or two who, like me, are unpublished songwriters. As audience and tasters, I strongly urge you to come and be privy to this very special marriage of pioneering spirits. Bring open minds, ears and taste buds - all three are in for some real treats!

Once a month we turn the Lapham Theater into a coffee house and bring in local musicians to entertain us. This month will feature the Front Porch Players. Since they feature several ukuleles in their music, we thought we’d go for broke and add additional ukulele performances. For extra silliness we’re having Uke Show & Tell – bring your ukulele to show off and if you’re up for it, play a song for us. Additional performers include Tom Capasso (of Acoustic Color) and Steve Lavin.

Streetfighter is - to the best of my knowledge - Long Island's premiere Rolling Stones tribute band, whose resident Mick Jagger Peter Vereecke used so sit in with my very first band Mazarin. Looking forward to playing many of my favorite Stones songs this Saturday!

This is our second outing - our "Sophomore album" if you will. Our featured performer this month is Stuart (Stu) Markus. Besides being a recording and touring songwriter, Stuart has been a working musician since 1993, with a collection of hundreds of popular songs from the past six decades. The lion's share of his repertoire is from the classic rock and folk-rock eras of the 1960s and '70s, but he stretches back to the swing era and forward to the current decade, to please audiences of all ages -- all adapted to the acoustic guitar. The “Living Room Sessions” series is held monthly at the Lapham Theater in the Port Washington Library for musicians and their friends. It’s an opportunity to hang out, create and enjoy live music in an informal environment with friends (some of whom you haven’t met yet.)

LaGuardia High School of Music and Arts where she majored in Vocal music studies. Ana has played at various venues throughout upstate New York and Long Island.
