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.  

Daily Shows 

For the time being I am offering daily live performance on Facebook Live Monday through Friday at 6 PM, Monday at 10 AM and Saturday at 10 AM, Eastern Standard Time.   We need music and community more than ever right now, and this is my contribution to our community, both online and physical.   Hope you can join me!

Groundhog Day at the Staten Island Zoo 

Once again the Rock-A-Silly Band provided the entertainment as Staten Island Chuck dazzled the crowd with his prognosticating skills.   He called for an early Spring to much rejoicing.   We couldn't be happier!

Mr. Patrick's Newest Family Member 

Meet Annie, Mr. Patrick's newest family member.  She's fond of cuddles, scratches behind the ear and the odd piece of colored string.  As John Lennon said, "Happiness is a Warm Cat."

Spreading Holiday Cheer 

Had a wonderful time this past Saturday entertaining children at a party hosted by the Staten Island Giving Circle, Project Hospitality and Los Promotores.   You KNOW things are out of control when you've got 2 reindeer in your hands!

A duck and a frog walk into a JCC.... 

This is me and my buddy Brian from Wild Side Zoo at last weekend's session of Camp Good Grief, where we both volunteered to help grieving children.  Been involved with this organization for over 5 years, and the volunteers who run it are my heroes: truly lights in this world.

Happy Veteran's Day 

This past Monday I had the honor of playing a special Veteran's Day event for some wonderful folks at Eger Harbor Assisted Living on Staten Island.   We sang patriotic songs, folk songs, and lots of favorites by Neil Diamond and, of course, Elvis.  (That's Presley, not Costello, man!)   The energy in the room was amazing!  Can't wait for the Holiday sing-along next month.

Fun at Empire Outlets 

Nothing like feeling short!   Where else but at Empire Outlets can you take a pic with Bat Girl and two giant dudes?   The band and I rocked out a crowd of over a thousand happy people last Saturday, and, man, did we have fun!   

Spooktacular 2019 

Look who showed up at the Staten Island Zoo's 2019 Spooktacular!   The Rock-A-Silly Band played Saturday and Sunday nights: a total of over six hours of music, laughter, dancing and all-around fun.   Can't wait for next year!

Empire Outlets 

Our show at the lovely and super-exciting Empire Outlets complex got cut short this weekend when Mother Nature decided to rain on us halfway through the performance.   But not to worry!  We are back on Sunday, September 8th from 1-3 for Mr. Patrick's Birthday Bash!
