Being Blessed!

THIS WEEK PRECAP:

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT:

TIN MONK accepted a Music Director position at the School of Rock in Beacon, NY, opening 2020, depending on Phase Timing. Talking Machine's performance availabilty will not change. As Music Director, Beacon School of Rock is encouraging Monk to remain a professional live performer. All venues and clients are encouraged to continue booking Talking Machine/Tin Monk without hesitation. Thank you.

(4) 2 Gig(s) this week/end:

(4) 2 Talking Machine/Tin Monk:

(Possibly on Thursday June 2nd the TRIO returns to The Wherehouse in Newburgh, NY. for another Monthly-First-Thursday gig at this home away from home, and so is appropriately the first gig of 2020. Show starts at 8PM.)

FIRST UP on Saturday July 4th we entertain at a private event.

LAST UP on Sunday July 5th the DUO (finally) returns to a family spot, Nostrano Vineyards in Milton, NY. They are social distancing with setup tables by the barn (where we'll be playing a short skip away). There will be a special holiday weekend menu. Reservations are encouraged (and ideal), however walk-ins are welcome, but served on first come, first serve basis (the distance and capacity mandates mean that they may be unable to serve some of the "walk-ins"). If you're hankering for top shelf wine and top shelf music, bring your top-shelf to Nostrano. Ahem. Show time is 2-5PM.

Live Streams: Not sure when or if we'll do any streaming this week. We'll post updates when we solid up days and times. Thank you all for your patience, understanding, and eagerness.

GOD BLESS

DISCLAIMER: one might ask "Monk, why all the italics and esoteric numbering of gigs!? Why the TBD tagging?! Why can't you give us a definitive answer?!!? Why the madness?!1 Why, damn you, WHY!!?!11!"

The answer to all of these questions being thus: Due to covid, the apocolyptic economy, and having businesses based out of New York State wherein the phasing is itself esoteric, needlessly tagged, and nebulous, some of our usually venues are having to "play it by ear" (no pun intended) regarding live music. The places that are definitely hosting us will be plain. The Italics and TBD tags will be necessary until we either pass through to the final phase, or Revelations goes into full effect. So we say either "See you guys soon" or "REPENT!". Thank you for your patience, understanding, and support.

BIO

back to the top

Tin Monk is the stage name of Composer, Performer, and Teacher Chris Holub. Monk has spent nearly a decade as the guitarist, vocalist, and founding member of Hudson Valley's own Talking Machine, a band he helms with his wife, Di Holub, with occasionally help from his drummer, Samuel Weismann.

When not performing with the group at venues, private and corporate events, Monk is the Music Director at the Beacon School of Rock. With nearly thirty years of total experience, Monk is a trifecta of metronomic bolero rythyms, blistering guitar leads, and three octave vocals. And a pretty good teacher to boot.

 

VIDEOS

We also managed to post a number of live vids recorded October 17th at The Monk House. Check it out:
