Quote by David Geller on previous TBT concert:
"Arcamone thoughtfully watched over his quartet, directing them toward some intense sounds. He was able to use his guitar’s versatility to expand the four-piece band into somewhat of a mini-orchestra, creating woodwind and organ-like imitations and mind-bending outbursts. ...
The audience was clearly passionate about the music, with frequent ovations after solos. The quartet’s vibrant style created a radiance that engulfed the diverse crowd."

Congratulations to Rani Arbo and Dave Downs!
They are first Middletown Music Ambassadors, a new program initiated by the City's Commission on the Arts (the MCA). Maybe one day Steve Crabtree will be among those honored with this title! Both Rani and Dave have performed at The Buttonwood Tree in the past.
