Reservoir Music Notes
March 17, 2012

Greetings readers! Welcome to this week’s Reservoir Music Notes. I’ve been holding this back, but now it can be told – Reservoir Music is moving! By April 1st, I hope to be open for business at our new location at 711 Route 28, Town of Kingston. Our phone numbers will remain the same. Stop by before the move for great deals on current inventory, and check back after the move for details of our grand opening, which will probably be in May or June. We’ve been at our current location for 7 years and it’s time for a change! For those of you in Kingston, Red Hook, New Paltz, Newburgh, Poughkeepsie, and Saugerties, we’ll be about ten minutes closer. And for those of you in Delaware County, Phoenicia, Big Indian, Boiceville, and Shokan, your ride just got ten minutes longer. Whatever the case, I sincerely hope all of our loyal and dedicated customers and friends will come along for the ride to our new location. The new building has a real comfy front porch that I’m eager to break in for live music. Stay tuned for some very cool events and visit our website to stay up to date on what we’re doing here at Reservoir Music Center.
 
There’s a new TV show coming to your local PBS station next month that promises to be very cool and pretty hot both! It’s called “Front Row Center” and the goal of the producers is to recreate the concert experience at home! Filmed in front of a live audience and utilizing the highest quality state of the art equipment, only time will tell if they succeed in their goal. Artists signed for the first season include The Beach Boys (reunited WITH Brian Wilson for their 50th anniversary), Elvis Costello, Jakob Dylan, Train, Cheap Trick, Moby, Ben Harper, T-Bone Burnett, and O.A.R. Long overdue, this promises to be a great show, if they do it right! Friday night at 10 on Channel 13 beginning April 13, Saturday night at the same time beginning April 21 on Channel 21. Interesting. It starts on the 13th on 13 and the 21st on 21. Coincidence? I think not! Hopefully, Front Row Center will last as long as SNL and bring us years of high quality concerts in our living rooms. For my money, Cheap Trick and The Beach Boys look like the best of season one, but as they say, it’s all good!.
 
Bobby Keys and The Sufferin' Bastards at The Highline Ballroom in Manhattan last Sunday, 3/11/12. Band includes Dan Baird (Georgia Satellites), Steve Gorman (Black Crowes), and Michael Webb (John Fogerty, Brooklyn Cowboys).
 
Speaking of live concerts, here are my picks for this week’s best live music.
Also, all this week and into next, THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND continues their annual three week trek through The Beacon Theater. Check the web for exact dates.
 
Rock on faithful readers!
