My first time playing in Cortland and with a new musician. Mikey Passereli is a tremendous keyboardist and we've wanted to get together for a long time.

7 piece band - Costume Contest - Comedy - Face Painting

NOISE, a new EP by Papa Muse will be officially released and we'll celebrate together in costume for a ragin' Halloween party on Friday the 28th at the Range. A Costume Contest hosted by comedian Emcee Kenneth Mclaurin.

Myztico Campo and Damaris Vázquez will have their ultraviolet art portal set up and will be doing Blacklight Face Bodypainting for donations.,

The EP: I've accumulated many recordings of songs that I'm proud of and I want to share them with you. I'm entitling this EP "NOISE" and it will feature some funky rock songs and just a touch of my brand of world music. This EP will feature different styles that we play and I'm curious which songs you will like the best and I welcome your feedback.

Farewell until spring! While I consider Ithaca my home, I do migrate south in the winter each year. The pandemic prevented me from doing so for a couple of years and the wanderlust is calling. So to celebrate and say goodbye to Ithaca, I'm having one last local hurrah with a 7-piece band and releasing an EP! Facebook event:

Papa Muse (acoustic duo at South Hill Cider)

 — (EDT, UTC-04) — (EDT, UTC-04)

South Hill Cider, 550 Sandbank Rd, Ithaca, NY 14850

Honored to play at the popular Thursday evening summer concert series at South Hill Cider. Drummer Damian (Massive) and I love to play acoustic together because we're able to create effortless harmonies and lock in rhythmically with the acoustic instruments. We also get to play new songs and interesting covers that we don't get to do with the full band.

On Thursday Aug 11th we will have that chance at this beautiful venue just outside of downtown Ithaca. The view on a summer night from South Hill Cider is exquisite and their home made hard cider is delicious. There is also wood fire pizza and other great food!

We are really looking forward to this summer evening show at this indoor/outdoor venue. It's a free event, but tips are appreciated. We play from 5:30pm - 8:30pm

Lincoln Hill Farms will be hosting 10 Sunday events during the summer between June 26 - August 28th. Called Sunday Fundays are always free to the public. There will be a solo or duo act on stage from 2-4pm and a full band from 5-8pm.

Papa Muse is playing on Sunday August 7th at 5pm. We had a great time when we played at this amazing event space in Oct 2019 except that it was very damp and very cold that day. This time we are playing in August and planning on enjoying a sunny Sunday with kind people, great food and delicious drinks all provided by Lincoln Hill Farms.

Show are a bit more rare these days as we try to stay safe and protect one another from the pandemic.
