Local threesome Willy off the Pickle Boat will perform what they call Americana “music for people folk who drink coffee on Friday nights” Friday night, Oct. 28, at Rock City Café, 316 Main St.

The following night — Saturday, Oct. 29, the Slippery Slope duo returns with instrumental blues. Patrick Ginnaty and Annette Rundall have known each other since school days. Ginnaty found a love of music and started pursuing his dreams at age 16. He attended the Berklee School of Music and has been playing various genres in scores of venues over the last 40 years. Rundall lived on the west coast for 25 years, returning to Maine in 1996. A longtime fans of the blues, she started playing bass in 1998.

Together, they play in Wicked Blues Band and as Slippery Slope. The duo invites everyone to join them for an evening of music and to celebrate Ginnaty’s birthday celebration — come in costume and be ready for that favorite Halloween party when the music is over.

Music both nights will run from 7 to 9 pm. Food is available until closing. For more information on these and other events happening at the coffeebar/cafe, call 594-4123 or find it on Facebook.
