Our man Danny has passed

I have come to learn that our dear friend and fellow musician Danny Quinn passed away peacefully last night – 30 Oct 2014 – at 9:30p give or take.   We’ve set up a memorial page –   Heaven knows that we’ve lost a fine human being and generous musician, and a better man that we all could aspire to emulate.

Our Jovial Halloween!

– Let us celebrate our Halloween at the Gris!  Come attired in your best costume!  Take photos from which we can post some of the best on this site!  Come imbibe spirits in our historic setting!  Let’s enjoy one of our most beloved secular holidays in grand style!

Support for a Friend

This morning I received word that a dear man and superb musician Danny Quinn has been overwhelmed with a medical issue and insurance is leaving his family with a hefty tab.  Heidi sent in this clip from Danny’s Facebook Page – “Just a note to Danny’s friends & fans: Danny is dealing with a medical challenge right now, and will not be performing (or Facebooking) for the next few months. His family thanks you in advance for respecting Danny’s need for privacy during this challenging time: what he needs most right now is healing rest. We know Danny has touched so many lives, and many will want to help. The best way to do this is to support one of the many benefit concerts that will be held (Details will be posted here and on his website), and/or to contribute to his GoFundMe campaign (a post about this will be up soon). Thank you in advance for your positive thoughts, prayers, and well wishes. PLEASE – NO RESPONSE POSTS – JUST LIKES AND SHARES. THEY WILL NOT BE READ BY DANNY.”

Spread the word and help one our own out with this during his trying time?

That was a tremendous show at the GPSCY – thank you to everyone who made it out!  There seems to be a growing following for us in the New Haven area as well – people we rarely see at the Gris but who seem to know our songs and banter!

And on Saturday the 18th, we’ll be back at the Gris for a special performance in the tap room for part of the continuing observance of the events in 1814 Essex – 8:30 ’till 11p.  Come down and join us, especially as it’ll be a weekend!
