March 2023 music w/ John Baboian
Hello friends, Spring is just around the corner. The snow storm predicted for a few days ago turned out to be a “nothing-burger”. Hopefully, the one predicted for tomorrow will be more of the same. We have been fortunate that the snow fall amounts this year, have been very easily dealt with. I hate shoveling snow, so my back and my knees appreciate the moderate season that we are having.
Just got back from a weekend in Toronto doing Berklee auditions. With a day off on the trip, we got to Niagara Falls in very cold weather. Everything was frozen (except the falls). It was beautiful. I hadn’t been there since I was about 4-5 years old, so it was great to be able to see this great wonder for the first time-again………
In sports, The Bruins are taking the NHL by storm. They are so far ahead of everyone else in points that it’s almost laughable. (Rick, I’m sure you’re enjoying this ride).
The Celtics are also playing great, right at the top of the NBA standings. Maybe this year they can pull out a win in the finals.
The Sox are at Spring training down in Florida. Always a good sign for some good weather ahead.
The Pat’s are trying to figure things out. My, how the mighty have fallen.
A bit light on gigs this month, but I will be playing in the pit orchestra for the local Belmont High School Spring musical.
Hope you can join us for a gig or two.
Thanks, Johnny B!!!!!
