April 2017 Update

Apr-16-2017

Hello Music Lovers! An Apple & Britt newsletter is way past due, and I apologize for that. Time passes quickly, especially when you are employed with a day job and have several other weekly commitments YEAR ROUND. (That would be me, Rhonda, and not Dale.) We are grateful for a steady gig in a perfect venue for what we do. However, due to slow business in years prior, Adolfo’s was forced to push back our start date for this year until Sat. May 27 th . We will have the following two weeks off, again due to slow business in years prior. Then we will begin working Fridays and Saturdays for the summer starting June 16 th . I just finished posting all those gigs on our website under the Appearances tab. I am happy to announce that this will be our sixth year to work for Kim and David Griffin, owners of Adolfo’s on the Ocean in the Beach Plaza Hotel, 1301 Baltimore Ave., Ocean City, Maryland.  Here is their website:  http://www.ocadolfos.com   Be sure to check them out on … [read article]

Sept. 20, 2016 Update

Sep-19-2016

Sept. 20, 2016 Update Hello Music Lovers, It’s hard to see another summer season get put in the history books. It happens every September but it never gets easier. I hope you are well and enjoying the last few warm days before Autumn rushes in.  I was blessed to go out on Dale’s jet skis with my daughter this summer! That was a beautiful day of fun memories.  Apple & Britt played every Friday and Saturday night at Adolfo’s on the Ocean in the Beach Plaza for the fifth summer in a row, sometimes to enthusiastic listeners and sometimes to just a few relaxed souls who were soaking up the music and ocean views as long as they could. David and Kimberly Griffin, the owners of Adolfo’s, work very hard to make their customers. Apple & Britt endeavor to compliment their efforts by taking requests off our lengthy list, creating a blend of ballads, Latins, swing and easy rock beats. The Great American Songbook lives on each night we play. This weekend will be our … [read article]

November 1, 2015 Hello Music Lovers, It’s “Autumn in New York” and on Delmarva. Did you bring out your warm sweaters and boots yet?

April 2015 Update

Apr-12-2015

April 12, 2015 Update Hello Music Lovers!  Are you enjoying the spring flowers and warmer temps as much as I am? I know the pollen causes havoc for allergy sufferers, but thankfully, it usually doesn’t bother me much, leaving me to thoroughly take pleasure in the radiance of colors bursting forth while donning fewer layers during my daily dog walks.  Apple & Britt had the winter off, with the exception of Valentine’s Day weekend at Adolfo’s on the Ocean.  Our regular Friday nights will begin again April 24 th , 2015.  Dale Britt will play solo piano at Adolfo’s until Memorial Day weekend, when Rhonda Apple will join him on vocals. We will play Sunday, July 5 th , instead of Saturday, July 4 th , due to the extreme traffic and lack of need for music to draw business that night. Apple and Britt play at the Piano Bar in the classically designed Beach Plaza hotel for the Adolfo’s on the Ocean restauranteurs Kim and David Griffin. They have a loyal local … [read article]
