Hello to all, with summer upon us, Bob has a pretty full slate in July. Restaurants, vineyards, and the always enjoyable Northport Farmer’s Market. Lots to do and see at the Market, and a beautiful outdoor venue to enjoy Bob’s special brand of music.
 Here are some tips from  The Market Master:
  • We suggest that those coming to the Market bring insulated bags or a cooler for their purchases
  • The Market is very “dog-friendly”
  • There is a children’s playground in the park next to the Market for your family
Hope to see you there.

Live on the Vine is a 6 week mid-winter music festival that take place in Long Island’s unique vineyard tasting rooms, hotels and other venues on the East End.

In 2012 Winterfest Jazz on the Vine was awarded the National Destination Marketing Award by Americans for the Arts and Destination Marketing International, a prestigious award validating our work and our vision which includes expanding our overall musical selection to encompass talented performers in jazz, blues, soul and country (hence the name modification, “Live” on the Vine.)

Hello to all, so what do you do on vacation? Well Bob……thats right, plays music. Bob was in Duck, North Carolina with old friend and former Acoustic Leaders bandmate Allan Fox for an open mic at the Sunset Grille and Raw Bar. They played for a very enthusiatic crowd and a great time was had by all. So check the calendar for upcoming dates and don’t forget to leave a comment . Thanks.

Live in Peace

Russ Seeger-Live in Peace

Some things in life are just worth waiting for. One of those things is Russ Seeger’s Live in Peace, the debut solo CD from a living legend on the Long Island music scene. Singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Seeger has made music with such greats as Vassar Clements, Peter Stampfel, Rick Danko, and the late, great Levon Helm. Live in Peace is a stunningly potent and intriguingly diverse collection of some of Seeger’s best compositions. You can read more about Russ by checking out his bio by noted writer Jeff Tamarkin on the Paradiddle Records web site.
Mixed by 2012 Grammy-winning producer Bob Stander, Live in Peace will be available October 9th on Paradiddle Records. You can preview a track from this CD by downloading The Best of Long Island Original Music 2012 Volume 1.

Hello to all, good news for everybody who loves Bob’s music.Six new songs have been added to the Music Page. They come from 4 of Bob’s Cds so you get some newer songs as well as some older ones. Great quality and great music for the cost of only ……nothing. So check out : Left Handed Jane, All That Ever Hurts Is Pain, The Distant Kind, Desire, Reasons For Leaving, and In Therapy in the Music Page and let us know what you think. Plus I put a lot of work into this and I really would appreciate it. Seriously, new stuff is being added all the time so look around and enjoy Bob’s music. Thank you.

 From kurt on

Please post “Irene’s Restaurant”. The world needs to hear this instant classic. I cannot begin to tell you how many mornings we spent listening to this song and going over every single line. Only the evil genius (i mean that in a good way) that is Bob Blatchley could turn a scorned woman’s voice mail into a beautiful song.
