As usual over the last 10 years ‘The Crew’ played their monthly gig at Skinny’s Grille. Sadly, it was our last at that location.

And now it is the time to reflect on one thing that was achieved at Skinny’s Grille, namely continuous live music on Saturday evenings for over a decade – though thick and thin.

Ideally most of us would like to leave behind deeds that have made a positive difference in the lives of others. Skinny’s Grille has achieved that with its fundraising efforts and support of community events, all taking countless hours of volunteer work in preparation. The management staff and valued regular customers of Skinny’s Grill have made a difference.

Speaking on behalf of the hundreds of musicians and their families and friends that were treated so well at Skinny’s Grille – a big thank you for the venue, the memories and the music,
