How I met Julie 22-years ago.
In case you are interested. Cute story.

Click to access post. You have to keep on SCROLLING. It is at the END of this post.


This is so, so GREAT. Made my day when I saw it. So, well deserved. By FAR our favorite eatery anywhere on Lake Winnipesaukee. My now 18-year old daughter insists on going there for her birthday for at least the last 10-years. Plus, I have attended at least 22 of the to-date 25 annual JTG musical extravaganzas. I have been going there since 1997, if not 1996 — that been when I discovered Meredith.

Thank YOU, Julie. Thank YOU Michael. Thank YOU the staff.

You have nourished, entertained and treated us, right royally, for so many years.

Here is to the next 30-years. Cheers.

25th Annual JTG Music Memorial Extravaganza, Giuseppe’s, Meredith, Sunday, May 5, 2019 — Program/Schedule.

Initial heads-up. As with last year 2019 JTG will be in May rather than in April, Sunday, May 5, 2019 to be precise.

As always this should be a blast, and I should know. I have been to at least 22 of the 25 JTGs over the years.

I will keep you posted. Stay tuned.

Another OUTSTANDING JTG. It is just amazing. Such a wonderful, warm, fun evening.

Very rewarding and fulfilling both in terms of food, music and bonohime.

We had reservations at 7pm. Usually that is when we leave. But, now Teischan is older and being homeschooled to boot. So, we could stay later. That was good because the acts we like, and have enjoyed over the years, have got pushed back later-and-later as new acts are added earlier in the day.

So, we got to see and listen to our perennial favorites — and they are listed above and below.

We were there till past 9pm when Michael Bourgeois finished his set.

So here are SOME of the pictures I took.

With SINCERE apologies to Rick Page. I just couldn’t reach you behind the drums. Sorry. I TRIED. Honest.

Today is the DAY and it has begun and will continue till close to midnight.

A good time will be had by ALL. That is a guarantee.

Yes, of course, we will be there. I have probably been to at least 17 of the 24.

See you there. I gather that there might still be SOME seating available.

Initial heads-up … MAINLY because the JTG, normally held in April, has been pushed back to May because one of the key Bourgeois family members is serving abroad — ‘Bourgeois’, of course, referring to Julie Gnerre-Bourgeois, as in the owner of Giuseppe’s and the daughter of ‘JTG’.

I will keep you posted. Stay tuned.

As always this should be a blast.

Anatole “Annie” Paquette at Giuseppe’s JTG Music Memorial Extravaganza — 2017: Video & Pictures.

by Anura Guruge



Click to ENLARGE.

Attribution WILL be enforced.





The annual JTG Music Memorial Extravaganza 2017 on Sunday, April 2. The 23rd running.

Anatole “Annie” Paquette, of “Annie and the Orphans“, with his wife Maddie, were our guests this year. They, inexplicably, had never attended a JTG though “Annie” is the Mayor of Meredith. Well we rectified that.

I always knew that Annie would end up on the stage though he was not on the program. And he did, with “No Limitz“, friends of his, asking him up for this number.

I only recorded a PART OF IT — because I also wanted to shoot pictures. That explains why it is so short. Sorry. Shooting videos is NOT my thing. I like photos.

Shot with my Sony a6000.

23rd Annual JTG Music Memorial Extravaganza at Giuseppe’s, Meredith, Sunday, April 2, 2017: Another TOTAL BLAST.

Never mind the joy and buzz, it always feels such a PRIVILEGE to be there. That I know many of the protagonists makes it even better.

As far as I can tell this was close to the 20th JTG I have attended and it never gets old. Instead it just seems to get better and better each year.

This year, 2017, was a BLAST.

That we took Anatole “Annie” Paquette (of “Annie and the Orphans“) & his wife as our guests made it even more SPECIAL. And yes, “Annie”, the ‘Mayor of Meredith’, was invited on the stage for a impromptu guest appearance. It was all extremely convivial.

Thank YOU Julie and Mike. You folks are the best; you folks ROCK.

The Flavor Of JTG Music Memorial Extravaganza 2017 At Giuseppe’s, Meredith: ‘No Limitz’.

by Anura Guruge


Short 2 minute YouTube video
just to let YOU enjoy the flavor.


The annual JTG Music Memorial Extravaganza 2017 on Sunday, April 2. The 23rd! Wow. It was good. These are the ‘No Limitz‘. They were good, as you can hear. Taking videos is not my forte — and something I am not partial to doing. So excuse poor quality. Shot with my Sony a6000.
