Blues duo slips into Velvet Lounge
Rockland — Rock City Cafe's Velvet Lounge series will present the Slippery Slope duo Saturday, March 29, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the downtown venue, 316 Main St.
Patrick Ginnaty and Annette Rundall have known each other since riding on the school bus, way back when. Ginnaty found a love of music and started pursuing his dreams at age 16. He attended the Berklee College of Music and has been playing various genres in scores of venues over the last 40 years. Now a blues purveyor, Ginnaty said he is finally playing the music he enjoys the most.
Rundall lived on the West Coast for 25 years and in 1996 returned to Maine, as most Mainers do. She developed her passion for the blues when she was introduced to the genre in the 1970s and started playing bass in 1998. Together, Ginnaty and Rundall play in the Wicked Blues Band and in Slippery Slope, their instrumental duo.
As usual there is no cover; however, tipping the musicians is highly encouraged. Rock City’s lunch menu now extends until closing on Velvet Lounge night. For more information on this and other events happening at the coffeebar/cafe, call 594-4123 or visit the Facebook page.
