The Scene: Music and Entertainment in and around Hurleyville this January

By Jane Harrison

Happy 2017!

It looks like we are going to have a real winter this year. Cabin Fever!!! Not all venues close tight over the winter months so I’m dedicating this column to these places. All ad­dresses and phone numbers are included in the sched­ule.

“Music Where You Least Expect It” at DeFillipis Bakery in Monticello on Sundays has been so suc­cessful that the bakery did some remodeling to accom­modate the music! Stop by for breakfast or just a cof­fee and pastry 11 AM to 1:30ish.

You can find a long run­ning open mic at Dutch’s in Rock Hill on Monday evenings. A staple of both here and DeFilippis is pal Steve Schwartz of Steve’s Music Center in Rock Hill, which on a snowing, blus­tery night in December was awarded “Business of the Month” by the Town of Thompson. An award well deserved. Congratulations again Steve!!

The High Falls Café in High Falls resumes its open mic every 2nd Thursday. Now I know this is a hike, but I can also say, having made that trek when weath­er permitted and cabin fe­ver struck, that it is well worth it.

The Brew in Rock Hill has indicated it will re­main open through January with Tuesday the 10th and the 24th belonging to the Search and Rescue Orches­tra. A rollicking good time, and highly recommended!

Sorella Pizzeria and Res­taurant in Kauneonga Lake will also remain open with the duo of master guitarist Al DeFino and Larry Rav­din on sax with sweet Jazz standards on Fridays and Saturdays.

Hurleyville’s own Pick­led Owl will also remain open, continuing to bring us incredible talent every Saturday.
