Frederick Road Fridays - 2008 Schedule

Friday June 13, 2008 5:30 -7:30 pm

"The Al Reisinger Band” (featuring Lynn Alonso)
Band members: (Dr.) Al Reisinger (mandolin and lead guitar); Jeff Pecore (guitar); (Dr.) Lynn Alonso (vocals and guitar)

All of these band members have interesting Catonsville connections – Al and Jeff both attended Mount St. Joe (Class of ’74); Jeff grew up nearby in Edmondson Heights; Lynn and Jeff (They are married) met for the first time out in front of Bill’s Music House – Al introduced them. The three of them also play with the band “The Notations”, which played its first gig at the Caton Tavern and often appeared at private gigs in Catonsville.
Three of the band members have been playing music together since 1979 when they played their first gig at a University of Maryland Medical school coffee house called “The Synapse” – Lynn and Al were in the same medical school class. Al and Jeff have been playing music together (including playing Italian music as strolling minstrels in Italian restaurants in Baltimore) since 1971.
These 3 Musicians are part of the 6-person acoustic group “The Notations”, which features 3-part harmony – that group is on hiatus and Al, Jeff & Lynn wanted to get back to theirr 1979 roots as a trio during the time off.
Their song list includes tunes by: Mary Chapin Carpenter, Linda Ronstadt, Smokey Robinson and other Motown, Carly Simon, Beatles, Fleetwood Mac, Mamas & Papas, Joni Mitchell, Laura Nyro -- all featuring Lynn’s vocals, Al’s mandolin, and Jeff's rhythm guitar.

Mr. Witzke -
My wife and I had dinner at Ships last night. The owner made it very clear that he did not like the idea of these Friday Concerts. And he will do whatever he can to stop them from happening.
I believe that these will help ALL of the businesses in Catonsville.
Why is he so angry? What is his real reason for fighting this?
We can't wait to bring our friends on June 13. Thanks for your commitment to help make Catonsville a better place.

On the Lighter Side!
