June 2023 music w/ John Baboian


Hi friends, Summer is just around the corner, and the weather is starting to reflect that.  With the warm dry weather that we’ve been having, the past week has been special. But, of course, get ready for the heat and humidity that will arrive soon.  So be it.  I’m a big fan of the warmer weather.  Tee shirt and shorts is my favorite wardrobe…..


What happened to the Bruins and Celtics??  Such promising regular season records, and then the post season went down the tubes, for both of them.  The Bruins out in the first round.  

And then the Celtics looking terrible against the Heat in the semi-finals.  I’m not a fan of this 3-point game that has permeated the NBA.  I miss the old way of playing.  And the proverbial “live by the three, die by the three” certainly held true for the last game.  They couldn’t hit a barn door from 3 feet away.  And Jayson Tatum giving up the basketball while dribbling between his legs and constantly trying to drive into 3 defenders, just about made me scream……..


The Red Sox, barely above .500.  Meh…..

Pat’s start training camp, but nothing to get too excited about…..yet.


Some fun gigs coming up as summer kicks in toward the end of the month.  The outdoor gigs will start up in July, so I’ll let you know about those next month.

Hope you can join us for a gig or two.


Thanks, Johnny B!!!!!
