[quote comment=”86646″] I say “throw in some mummified doo wop act with none of the original members” B n R’s just love their Doo Wop. Especially Johnny Maestro and the Brooklyn Bridge. “The Worst That Could Happen” is like the B n’R national anthem I think. [/quote]

Johnny Maestro and The Brooklyn Bridge are celebrating their 40th anniversary in 2008. They still have four original members: Johnny Maestro, Les Cauchi, Fred Ferrara & Jimmy Rosica. In Nov. 2008, it will be 50 years since Johnny sang lead with The Crests on “16 Candles”. Maestro’s voice is better than ever, and he and The Bridge released a CD in 2007 titled “Songs of Inspiration”.

I think more than a few of the festivals (as annoying as they are) do indeed bring in a ton of money to the city coffers. They make money off the tickets/citations, taxes collected from businesses & the fees vendors pay to participate. And to tell you the truth, I don’t mind having some festivals in town. But get rid of that film festival already. That one in particular seems to only exist to enrich a few insiders. And be more agressive policing quality of life crimes at some of the other festivals (St. Patty’s day in particular – that one I avoid like the plague). But the Arts festival I do enjoy (though I freely admit I don’t live right next to it and absolutely understand why many hate that festival). I just wish we had a few more artists and a few less T-shirt vendors there…….

I don’t know how all the fairs are funded, I wouldn’t mind knowing.

I went to the OLG fair last weekend, and was sorely disappointed. The arts and crafts were not much to be spoken for. Maybe I’m biased as I grew up with a mom in the PTA that ran a fund-raising Arts and Craft Show. A very successful one. People had to pay to have a table, the crafts were of good quality, from simple but nice beadwork, to actual silversmiths and oil painters. By the time I was in middle school, our little elementary school craft fair had to rent the middle school to accommodate all the artists.

Some events like this can make a town money if done right, which I somehow doubt is happening here.

Agreed strand…it’d be one thing if the street festivals were any different, but year in/out it’s the SAME GOD DAMN THING.

And how about those new segways for the HPD? How about sending those back?
