6/6-6/7: PINK FLOYD

The Month of May

Program highlights in May include the annual Acoustic Storm Mother's Day show, as we'll roll out some "maternal" acoustic-rock with Pink Floyd's "Mother," plus music from Dylan & The Band, Mott the Hoople and a couple of tunes from The Beatles' "White Album." 

On a personal note, the 5/9-5/10 Acoustic Storm is dedicated to the memory of my mother, Lynne T. Parets.  Her birthday (May 11th) often fell on Mother's Day. A lot of my musical inspiration comes from Mom and her side of the family.  My grandmother was an accomplished concert pianist and violinist, while Papa was a gifted opera singer. 

Here's a look at May's scheduled artists in the Eye of The Storm...



5/16-17: ROLLING STONES      

5/23-24: CROSBY STILLS & NASH
