If you’re a jazz/jazz fusion lover, then you definitely know Spyro Gyra. These guys have released 31 albums, been playing for 40+ years, and have performed over 5,000 shows. They’ve also sold over 10 million albums, with one platinum and two gold records. We’re a bit impressed, to say the least! They’re headed to Infinity Hall in Norfolk on October 22nd. We were excited to chat with Jay Beckenstein, founding member and bandleader…

What a complete treat it was to be invited to attend this year’s MOMIX in the Garden.

To see MOMIX perform is always sure to be an incredible experience, but to see MOMIX perform privately for a small group of about 200 or so attendees – well, it was one of those never to be forgotten evenings! The half-hour performance (a selection of dances from their varied shows) took place at the home of Kristin & Grant Mudge in Norfolk. The evening would benefit the Susan B. Anthony project based in Torrington.

Curling. Relatively simple in rules and equipment, lacking in balls, and the game ends at the bar toasting the losers with a drink – it’s a sport we can get behind.

When we were doing our usual “whatcha gonna wear?” back and forth, I asked Lora if she thought I should bring my figure skates or ice hockey skates (I have both gathering dust in my cupboard) – THAT is how clueless I was about curling. Crazy, being that I’m Scottish and curling was invented by my people in medieval times. What can I say, I never paid close attention. I always thought it was a strange sport that combined ice and housework.

When Ted Stone (obviously destined to be a curler) invited us to the Norfolk Curling Club we were eager to find out what curling really entails.

Between launching our blog, the two of us working full-time AND having additional part-time jobs, we were so ready for a night of wine, dining and live music. We put on our best “Rock n’ Roll” outfits (to us this meant crochet tops and ripped jeans) and headed over to Infinity Hall in Norfolk, CT to see Chris Robinson Brotherhood perform. Yay!
