Board and Brush Staten Island, 2965 Veteran's Road West, Staten Island, NY 10309

Mr. Patrick is super-excited to announce he's partnering with Board and Brush Staten Island to provide live musical fun during this family-friendly, not-scary Halloween workshop. They provide all the materials and instruct you step-by-step to create a beautiful piece for your home or for a gift. There will be two sessions: 11AM-12PM and 12PM-1PM. Advance registration is required. Please see link below to reserve your spot.

A different kind of show 

After playing for two hours for the children at Wonder Years Preschool the other day, I headed over to Eger Assisted Living for a relaxed outdoor show, featuring folk songs, patriotic songs and lots of standards, including cuts by Cole Porter, Irving Berlin and George and Ira Gershwin.   (Baby Shark was suspiciously absent.....)

Sooooooooooo Good To Be Back! 

It's hard to overstate how good it felt to get back into things this weekend: we had music, laughter, dancing and overall joy and then some!   All under gorgeous sunny skies.   After so much gloom, so much difficulty, this weekend felt like. Renaissance.   Just look at those little faces!   And in the words of the Carpenters: "We've only just begun."    Stay tuned!


New Addition To The Family 

Recently welcomed Ms. Suzie Q to the Music With Patrick family.   Like many, she's fond of unicorns, bouncy rhythms and a good cup of java in the morning.   Most of all, she can't wait to play for families and get their feet dancing!

Virtual Shows 

You wouldn't think a virtual show could be so much fun, but after this past Monday's concert, I am changing my tune, so am proud to partner with my friends form the JCC of Staten Island for a new series of virtual shows, featuring guitar, puppets and a dude with some very questionable hair.

Spooktacular 2020 

Despite the difficulties of the COVID pandemic, our friends at the Staten Island Zoo managed to present Spooktacular 2020, and the Rock-A-Silly Band was there to bring the fun in a safe, socially-distant way.    Three nights of 3+ hours of music per night = a heckuva a lot of fun!

Virtual Shows 

Taking a break from the Facebook Live shows for a while.  All past shows are archived on the Music With Patrick Facebook and YouTube pages, should you need a serious dose of silliness. 

New Family member 

During tough times like these, welcoming a cute little furrball into the family is one way to put a smile on your face and a glow in your heart.  Meet Alley Cat, the newest member of the Mr. Patrick family.   She's fond of naps, grooming, treats, playing, and, yeah, more naps and more grooming.
