Thursday Night. What can we say about Thursday Night other than it’s the high point of the week for us. For at least 7 or 8 years now, The Bellport Restaurant’s co-owner, Taylor Alonso, chef, singer, and outrageous guitar player, has been holding a musical jam at The Bellport every Thursday evening starting at between 9:30pm and 10pm and usually going to about 1am.
What kind of music will you hear? Well, I asked Taylor what he would call it... “Classic Rock?” “60’s, 70’s, and 80’s Rock?” His answer? “It’s Bar Room Rock!” Actually, it all depends on which of Taylor’s musician friends make it down for any given Thursday evening as the music can span the entire musical gamut. The one thing you can be sure of is that it will be great music. With the fall and winter ahead of us, what better way to spend your Thursday evenings than with a drink in hand and some really great music?
With that in mind, it seems so appropriate that Taylor would release his first CD entitled, “Thursday Night.” The CD wasn’t recorded at The Bellport Restaurant on a Thursday evening. Instead, it was recorded in the studio and features nine original songs for which Taylor wrote the music and lyrics. Many of the Thursday Night regulars back Taylor up on the CD, but it is definitely all Taylor Alonso. When you stop down next Thursday evening, be sure to pick up a copy.
So... If it's Thursday night and you're itching to get out of the house and do something. Head for The Bellport and a really great evening!
