Tom Kohn from the Bop Shop is organizing a Scorgies Reunion for Friday, November 21, 2008 at the German House, 315 Gregory Street.
The idea for this project came about late last year from several reminiscences with Danny Deutsch, Stan Merrill, and Don about Scorgies and Rochester’s thriving music scene of the time. It all started with a Jukebox and the rest was history. This Reunion celebrates those days and will recapture some of the great music that was so integral to the Rochester scene.
The stories that you can share will make some of the most interesting aspects of this Reunion.
Please take the time to read the blog and contribute your memories. And stop back often; people are adding stories nearly every day.
Here’s the Official Scorgies Reunion lineup: Personal Effects, New Math, and The Press Tones.
Doors will open at 7pm and the show will be 8-11pm. Get there early; it’s a great chance to catch up with old friends, many of whom are coming in from out of town. If you eat downstairs at The Keg, we recommend getting there quite early; in fact, it’s best to call for reservations. The bar will be open both upstairs and downstairs and we’ve assembled some things to see – reminders of the old scene we know you will enjoy.
Tickets are $20 in advance and $22 at the door. They are now on sale at The Bop Shop, 274 N. Goodman St., Abilene Bar and Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way, and The Keg, downstairs from The German House, 315 Gregory St.
A portion of the proceeds from the Scorgies Reunion will go to Bop Arts Inc., a not-for-profit organization, dedicated to presenting live performances of new and traditional music in our community.
