Musical dream weavers, or aging hippies still groovin'? We invite you to decide.
We are Acoustic Downtime, a band based in Long Island, New York specializing in a mix of Country Blues, Contemporary Folk, sweet and sassy Originals, stylized Pop standards, and 50's and 60's small combo Jazz pieces that we are at home with and feel defined by. Please give our site a look, and if you like what you see check us out at the venue of your choice. Have a good time! WE DO!!!
Thanks to all our loyal fans and new friends that we've been acquainting ourselves with wherever we play. Your support is awesome!! Once again, we are proud to let you know that we have been participating in a number of local food drives throughout the Summer for the past 3 years, sponsored by OOMPA (Organization of Open Mic Performing Artists). The program gets better and is more successful each year. A high point of this season's food drive came when OOMPA collected almost 50 large boxes of food at our Waldbaum's Rocky Point food drive alone. We then formed a car-avan and delivered every box right into the food pantry storage at St, Anthony's Outreach Program site. What a great feeling that was - and many of you pitched in to make it happen. We're proud of every package, can, bottle,and box collected. We plan to do it again next Summer and we encourage you to come down to hear us play and also to shop and donate some food for a worthy cause. All donations are given to local soup kitchens and food pantries or Island Harvest. In other words, this assistance stays and helps locally - your friends and neighbors - who are finding it hard to make it in these times. Thanks in advance for helping us with such a great cause! We'll publish the schedule in the Spring.
Finally, we're just hinting - but we've been saving all monies we make playing and soon will have enough to record that professionally produced CD we've been promising. Details on who's producing us, what songs we'll do, etc., etc. is coming down the pike! Stay Tuned!
