PAWLING, N.Y. - Pawling Public Radio is taking its Friday Night Music Hall Showcase Series on the road, with plans to visit music venues around the Hudson Valley.
This Friday's (Feb. 17) program will be hosted by Jacque Roche, and presented to a live audience at the Reverie Caffe, 21 Front Street in Patterson.
Bedford's own Andy Kuusisto will be performing music from his recently released CD 'Lemons and Bananas,' Mike Hoanzel and Fabian Valente of the Yorktown-based group The Awedit will be presenting their progressive instrumental rock as a duo, and Inner Worlds – including founding members Pat & Joan Roche of Patterson, NY - will perform contemporary jazz fusion.
“We are going to provide the community with a family-friendly program that will include raffle prizes, free giveaways, and some really great music," Roche said. "WPWL invites you to join us at Reverie Caffe for two hours of some amazing music you’ve most likely never heard before.”
Raffle prizes include a gift package from the Brewster Ice Arena that includes free time on the ice in Brewster, and a pair of tickets to see a Danbury Titans game in Danbury, CT; two dozen fresh-baked mini cookies from a local Bedford Hills baker (details and contact information for K’s mini cookies can be found on Facebook); two gift certificates from Reverie Caffe for $25 each; a 15-minute reading by Rock Star Psychic Francine Tesler, to be done at Pete’s Restaurant and Saloon in Elmsford, NY; newly published and beautifully illustrated hardcover book entitled 'Harvest: Unexpected Projects Using 47 Extraordinary Garden Plants,' donated by one of Pawling Public Radio’s Show contributors, Lisa Kelsey.
Suggested donation is $10 for adults, and children 12 and under may attend for free. With the donation, entrants will be eligible to win a free door prize and also purchase additional raffle prizes listed above. The raffle tickets will be sold for $2 each or five tickets for $5.
