Abbott Brothers at Altus Once More

Sunday, February 1st, 2004

Saturday night, Abbott Brothers band played at Altus. Such fun we had! We do our part to do good publicity for her, and Sarah Stollak’s column did bring in at least one couple who otherwise would not have come in. We filled the tables for two seatings during our performance, and at a couple points there were people waiting very short whiles to get a seat. This is exactly what we intended when we started offering music at the restaurant. We want to bring more people in, especially people who perhaps have not been there before.

The crowd was very responsive. We had a few people who came because they knew us, and that was fun. I love singing to friends. We had one couple come out who had been at our last Fabulous Heftones performance at Altus, but who had not heard of us before that. A couple people came out from Barbara Abbott’s workplace, and it turned out that her department’s secretary is a woman I worked with in 1979 or 1980 at a local restaurant which is no more. It was good to see her again, and she seemed to really enjoy the music.

I bill the Abbott Brothers as “Good-Time Music” and last night we did just that sort of act. It was delightful fun performing, and the audience responded well. It’s extra-special when the crowd is right there with us.

Here is a picture of Barbara, Bob, and Larry, flirting with the camera just as they start to dive in to our lovely feast. After we finish playing, Altu brings abundant good food. The meal is definitely a highlight of the experience.
