Marco here. What a rainy summer this has been! But things are looking hotter
than ever for bnn. It has been a year now since I have joined the band and I
am so glad to be here to tell you how exciting and promising things are
getting for us. We were spared the rain at the Myrtle Street Festival in
Queens on August 13. It was a very gratifying day; people were dancing,
including a few police officers, and at the end of the show Stefanie, Diane,
and Mandi were signing autographs to the numerous children that had gathered
by the stage during the performance.
On the 18th we were delighted to see so many fans at O'Donnell's. It was
definitely the place to be as the Phil Pemberton Band "brought down the
roof" with their infectious funky grooves. In case you missed the party,
make sure to come next time, as we will certainly have these guys come down
again. The Random Horns performed beautifully even when a brand new, never
seen before, arrangement was thrown at them without warning!
Now we are beginning preparations for our much awaited CD Release Party
which, if you donıt already know, will take place at the Elbow Room in NYC
on September 7. Stefanie is coming up with so many surprises that I can
hardly keep up with them; and thatıs only the beginning! We will be
performing all over the place during the next month: from Long Island to
Newark to Princeton, NJ just to name a few places. As I was saying earlier
in this Dear Surfer, things are getting very hot for blue number nine even
in this strangely mild summer.
