COVID-19 – CANCELLATIONS!  Sadly, we are not alone in being effected by this current health crisis and we certainly hope all our followers stay well and protected. As a result of this crisis, all of our dates from the second week in March through June have been cancelled. We are hoping that the crisis will pass, and/or, be under control so as not to effect our July dates, and beyond. Some of our regular clubs are slowly getting back in service, but it will still be a while before they can sustain a full band for entertainment.  I will not be changing the calendar pages, but please remember, all of those dates are currently cancelled or pending. If the current status changes, I will make a statement here. We look forward to seeing everyone at our usual spots very soon. Stay well and remember, wear a mask when out among others and wash your hands regularly!

New Location: 

BRASS & BRONZE FOUNDRY BAR: This is a brand new location for us located on Broadway Avenue in downtown Lorain. As soon as the current health crisis passes we will have a booking here. Once booked,  come join our trio  from 7:00 to 10:00 at this attractive location at 637 Broadway Avenue. Food offerings are excellent! 440-288-1533.

We are always looking for new locations whether it be East, West or South for you to come see us. As those new places become available, they will be listed here. Stay tuned.

MYSTERY SHOW(S):

 THIS SHOW, ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED FOR JANUARY 25, 2020 HAS NOW BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL LIKELY, SOMETIME IN 2021. LOOK HERE FOR THE NEW DATE.

WHO CUT THE CHEESE?!

When Gino Gorgonzola was found in a back alley in New Orleans with his throat slit, Mickey Mozzarella went into a rage. He immediately called a meeting of the Four Families – all right, I know, there used to be Five Families but with the economy the way it is, we had to cut back! With the help of the Provolone and Romano Families, Mozzarella is hoping to get to the bottom of this insult to the families! Gino’s widow, Georgianna insists on attending the summit and that all the wives attend. Mickey, not wanting to upset the grieving widow, agrees. With the help of his assistant, Pamela Parmigiano, he hopes to keep the women in line. But, when Detective Colby Sharpe shows up to investigate, the big cheeses are not too happy! I don’t know who cut the cheese, but there is plenty of it to go around!

For details on pricing packages which could include an evening stay at the hotel, go to our Mystery Page!
