September music w/ John Baboian


Hi friends, so, does September 1 mean that the summer is over?  Technically, no.  But, it was definitely cooler the last couple of nights, so it felt more like Fall was in the air.


Labor Day weekend is upon us, and we had registration week at Berklee this week.   Classes start next Tuesday, so I guess the rest & relaxation is over.


In sports, the Red Sox continue to stink.  “Wait till next year” used to be the catch phrase every year pre-2004.  Hope it doesn’t come back as a regular saying.

The Pat’s have started training camp, and haven’t looked great in the pre-season games.  But that doesn’t mean anything.  It’s the real games that count, and the first one isn’t that far off.


Some interesting gigs this month.  Hope you can join us for a gig or two.


Thanks, Johnny B!!!!!
