Dear Abbey (Ann is no longer with us, right?):

I can't believe my cousin. Today I got a card telling me to save May 17, the day his daughter is getting married... in Nashville, TN. I don't think he has any idea how far Nashville is from the Beacon.

I tried explaining to him that a Saturday afternoon ceremony in Central Park and a horse-drawn carriage ride to Yogi's, followed by a reception with 2800 other friends at the Beacon Theater and then a post-reception party with Lefty Collins and the NMB at BB King's is a wedding his daughter will never forget. She is a singer, for crying out loud. My kids would be thrilled with such a wedding.

But he won't listen.

How can a blood relative do something like that? I even took him and his wife to see a Susan Tedeschi show in Nashville. What's wrong with him? I can't see what else I can do short of finding a way to break up the wedding.

Help!!


Call me broken hearted that I may not be Beacon bound on May 17.

You have a previous engagement. They will just have to understand. Believe me they'll have enough to keep them busy.

By the way ... I really thought the Central Park, Beacon, BB Kings wedding idea was very sweet. You'd make one heck of a wedding planner absnj :-)

50% of all marriages end in divorce.


10% of all Beacon shows end with Whipping Post or One Way Out*.


Send them a card.







































* I made that stat up, don't go looking through the database to prove me wrong.

Planning a wedding during the Beacon run is like planning a wedding on a Saturday during football season: Unacceptable.
