October 2021 music w/ John Baboian

 

Hi friends, Happy October.  

After a very pleasant and warm September, October is bringing in some, as expected, colder weather.  

After 6 months of morning dog walks with shorts and t-shirt, I had to take Jazmine for her morning “constitutional" the past couple of days with sweatpants and jacket.  

And, of course, it’s only going to go downhill from here.

 

Berklee is back in live action with one of the biggest entering classes in history.  Everyone, faculty/staff/students, has to be vaccinated, and we are all getting tested weekly at Berklee’s own clinic.  Fully masked inside.  We have a very low positivity rate.  .02% positivity rate at last check.  
 

On the sports front, this is a huge weekend in New England.  The Red Sox are playing the final 3 games of the regular season, and if they don’t play well in these games, they will probably miss the playoffs.

And then there is Sunday night…….

What do we call it?  Pat’s vs. Bucs……or, TB12 vs. Mac Jones…..or, maybe TB12 vs. Belichick…..

Any way you look at it, it’s going to be an interesting game.

 

Gigs have been picking back up in recent months, and this month is busy as well.  Lots of interesting events, including a memorial for our friend/colleague, Lance Martin.

Hope you can join us for a gig or two.

 

Thanks, Johnny B!!!!!
