Three Gigs In Three Days

Three gigs in three days was a first for Acoustic Apple.  Last Thursday night we performed at Spinnakers (a very nice restaurant in Oyster Bay).  We had previously been a "featured performer" at the weekly open mic, but this was our first 3-set gig at this venue.  Friday night we performed at the Babylon Bean (one of our favorite venues), and made a bunch of new friends.  Saturday night's gig was our most unusual one so far.  We were invited to perform at the Waterfront Center in Oyster Bay (about 2 blocks from Spinnakers) in a building in which a replica of the Oyster harvesting boat "Ida May" is currently under construction.  The original Ida May, built in 1925, worked on the waters of Oyster Bay for 75 years and was historically significant because she was one of the first oyster dredges to be powered by an engine as opposed to a sail. The concert was a fund-raiser for the construction of the boat (which is being built entirely by volunteers).  A large crowd enjoyed our performance and a number of our friends also showed up to show support.  Afterwards, a few of us went over to Spinnakers for a late-night snack.
