NotesFrom Brian and Susan at the Tailgate: Good news! We’ve been in contact with the state and will be in compliance with the new regulations concerning Covid, indoor seating and musical entertainment. This being the case, we will be RE-OPENING today 10-15-20! Of course, there have been some changes to take note of when coming into our establishment. Masks MUST be worn until seated. A temporary stage has been built in our pool room. This to keep musicians and the audience 14’ or more, in compliance with new state mandates. We can NOT allow dancing at this time. The bar area has been closed off, but you can get service with a mask on, but we are unable to service seated customers at the bar at this time. We do know there has been confusion on musical entertainment and the opening of indoor seating. Again, we have been in contact with the state and of right now, we are good to continue with having music. We certainly understand that some folks will not be comfortable with any indoor seating. That is their choice and we support them and understand their concerns. Of course, we all need to stay positive. We all need to stay safe. We hope to see you soon!

NotesIt all started back in the 20th century. It was the 1980s and hair metal bands ruled. The radio was jam packed with synthesized pop. Emerging hip-hop was all the rage. Thats when three teenage buddies decided it was a good time to start an American, roots-rock, blues band. They loved Chuck Berry, Carl Perkins, Muddy Waters and B.B. King. Their classmates didnt know what to make of them but they boogied anyway. Calling themselves Unfinished Business, Rob Babson, Dean Clegg and Troy R. Bennett started rocking high school dances, barbecues, band battles and all-night parties around their high school in Maine. After graduation they kept on playing but not together. Fate had other plans for them. For the next 30 years, each followed different paths through parallel lives of professional music-making.Now, after a three-decade hiatus, they're back together as the Unfinished Blues Band because theyre not done yet. They're still all about the basics: Swinging Drums, grooving bass lines and soulful guitar. Its all they need to make you dance, stomp and sing along. Babson's hands fly like lightning over his shining guitar strings. He wrings pathos and fury from its electrified, wooden body. Clegg, is the beating heart of the band. He hammers out tight rhythms on the drums with his brain and all four limbs. Bennett's fingers bring the bottom all the way to the top. His rumble-tumble bass lines never stop trucking. They all sing and you will, too. You wont be able to help yourself. Together, they've got nearly a hundred years of combined performing experience. As old friends, they're finding renewed energy in the music they make together. The spark is still alive and burning brighter than ever. Tickets are $12.00 in advance and $15.00 at the door. www.unfinishedbluesband.com If you have questions or comments about Cadenza, please feel free to contact Matt Fogg at foggmatthew@gmail.com or Alan Mooney at halanmooney@gmail.com.

NotesFrom Brian and Susan at the Tailgate: Good news! We’ve been in contact with the state and will be in compliance with the new regulations concerning Covid, indoor seating and musical entertainment. This being the case, we will be RE-OPENING today 10-15-20! Of course, there have been some changes to take note of when coming into our establishment. Masks MUST be worn until seated. A temporary stage has been built in our pool room. This to keep musicians and the audience 14’ or more, in compliance with new state mandates. We can NOT allow dancing at this time. The bar area has been closed off, but you can get service with a mask on, but we are unable to service seated customers at the bar at this time. We do know there has been confusion on musical entertainment and the opening of indoor seating. Again, we have been in contact with the state and of right now, we are good to continue with having music. We certainly understand that some folks will not be comfortable with any indoor seating. That is their choice and we support them and understand their concerns. Of course, we all need to stay positive. We all need to stay safe. We hope to see you soon!

NotesCarlos hails proudly from the acoustic singer/songwriter school of performance. The big difference between Carlos’ songwriting and performance styles and that of so many others is that Carlos’ music transports you to a wide spectrum of emotional and cultural destinations. It is almost inevitable that after his show, a fan will approach Carlos and say with genuine enthusiasm, “Wow! That was definitely not what I was expecting. How is it that you can change gears so effortlessly throughout your show?” He is quick to point out that Tri-cultural Pop is all about changing gears and realigning perspectives. “My mother was always putting on this old, scratchy LP called Music From Around The Globe, and I would sit mesmerized at how beautifully diverse each song sounded. I believe that being born in Puerto Rico in 1960 spared me from the dreary fate of becoming a genre purist. It all boils down to one thing: will the song I’m playing for you at this very moment in time, move you?” On any given night, fans can hear at least four different songwriting styles in at least two languages performed with heartfelt passion as well as sense of humor. Carlos has the innate ability to make each fan feel as if the song was written for and sung directly to them. After the first two or three songs, you begin to feel as though Carlos is in your living room. It feels like home!
