Apr-17-2019

April 17, 2019 Update Hello Music Lovers, With springtime, Easter and chocolate-covered peanut butter eggs come gig bookings and the need for another update on Apple & Britt. Seriously, we received the majority of our summer bookings (thus far) in just the past few days. Moreover, I just picked up my order of the Easter-inspired, chocolate-covered peanut butter eggs after work today. It’s supposed to be a fundraiser for the women’s group at my church, but I don’t take orders. I just buy a bunch and enjoy giving them away to co-workers, friends and family. Dale and I spent the whole winter not knowing what our summer schedule would look like, wondering if our days of gigging were over, but trusting in Providence. You must understand, I keep busy year-round with my day job in property management for affordable housing communities. And I have truly enjoyed having my weekends off all winter, not that I have had uneventful or boring weekends. Isn’t it funny how free time … [read article]

April 19, 2018 Update

Apr-19-2018

Hello Music Lovers, Spring 2018 looks very different for Apple and Britt than it has in 18 years. We have enjoyed playing pretty steady up until now. Adolfo’s on the Ocean decided to close their business Dec. 21, 2017 due to the hefty rent increase for the space in the Beach Plaza Hotel. So, Dale and I no longer have our Piano Bar gig. When I drove past the hotel a couple weeks ago it did not look like any new restaurant had leased the space, and the Beach Plaza’s website only mentions the casual eater on the ground floor. We enjoyed our “premier” performance at The Globe in Berlin, MD, on Sat. April 7 th . You can hear/watch samples on Dale’s YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCm6zzKaczxbK-nTnjWLps3Q We also had a full house and good response on April 6 th when we entertained the folks at the Ocean City Senior Center. As of June 1 st our summer schedule is open, especially after Dale and I finish with our vacations in May. We have made … [read article]

Apr-16-2017

Hello Music Lovers! An Apple & Britt newsletter is way past due, and I apologize for that. Time passes quickly, especially when you are employed with a day job and have several other weekly commitments YEAR ROUND. (That would be me, Rhonda, and not Dale.) We are grateful for a steady gig in a perfect venue for what we do. However, due to slow business in years prior, Adolfo’s was forced to push back our start date for this year until Sat. May 27 th . We will have the following two weeks off, again due to slow business in years prior. Then we will begin working Fridays and Saturdays for the summer starting June 16 th . I just finished posting all those gigs on our website under the Appearances tab. I am happy to announce that this will be our sixth year to work for Kim and David Griffin, owners of Adolfo’s on the Ocean in the Beach Plaza Hotel, 1301 Baltimore Ave., Ocean City, Maryland.  Here is their website:  http://www.ocadolfos.com   Be sure to check them out on … [read article]
