What’s Up Peekskill? It’s 2017.

The confetti has been cleaned up, the subway station in Grand Central still smells like barf (gross!), the weather is cold, then hot, then cold again, a new, tweet-happy president is about to be sworn in, Congress tried to not get caught in an ethical conundrum (idiots!), the Rangers are hot, then cold, then hot again, Kim Kardashian is back on social media (sigh) and Peekskill… well, Peekskill rocks!
Happy New Year! Get used to it.

What’s Up Peekskill? Happy New Year!

2016
2016 was a stinker of a year. Far too many losses if you ask us at P-rocks. We lost a Space Oddity, Professor Snape, The Greatest, Chekov (the new one), Mrs. Brady, the Symbol guy (Prince for those of you who forgot about that phase), Fidel Castro and Princess Leia to name but a few. May the force be with them. But at least we won’t have to wear these stupid glasses anymore…

What’s Up Peekskill? It’s getting colder…

What does the onset of winter and herding cats have in common? Nothing. But there’s some dude pining about Jesse’s girl, a Country Christmas, nutcrackers (yikes), karaoke, and lots of jazz and rock downtown. So herd them cats and rustle up some warmth and fun downtown with lots of live music.

What’s Up Peekskill?

Are you tired of the rain? Is the cold getting into your bones? Is your skin dry and cracking? Then let Dr. Peekskill help you out. Come downtown for a benefit at the Paramount to help pay for the Peekskill Fire Department’s 4th of July fireworks. Come to the Hat Factory for wine tasting and pottery sale to benefit the Peekskill Education Fund. Donate toys at the Peekskill Coffee House for the Love Holds Life Children’s Cancer Foundation. There’s also a new record store. Feel better yet? Good. Then the doctor orders you to do a little rehab with good old drinking and live music, and even some swing dancing! Come on and rock, Peekskill.
