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:
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]
April 2017 Update
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

Sept. 20, 2016 Update
Hello Music Lovers,
It’s hard to see another summer season get put in the history books. It happens every September but it never gets easier. I hope you are well and enjoying the last few warm days before Autumn rushes in. I was blessed to go out on Dale’s jet skis with my daughter this summer! That was a beautiful day of fun memories.
Apple & Britt played every Friday and Saturday night at Adolfo’s on the Ocean in the Beach Plaza for the fifth summer in a row, sometimes to enthusiastic listeners and sometimes to just a few relaxed souls who were soaking up the music and ocean views as long as they could. David and Kimberly Griffin, the owners of Adolfo’s, work very hard to make their customers. Apple & Britt endeavor to compliment their efforts by taking requests off our lengthy list, creating a blend of ballads, Latins, swing and easy rock beats. The Great American Songbook lives on each night we play. This weekend will be our … [read article]
