Park Coffee House

The Park Coffee House For over 30 years, Park Coffee House has presented the best local and regional musicians, originating from a performance in a coffee house setting by John Preston, Ken Allen, and Liz Vannicola. After that first show of their acoustic folk music at the Holland Patent Presbyterian Church, these three decided to invite other musicians to play at the venue that became Park Coffee House. Park Coffee House initially operated independently, eventually coming under the organizational umbrella of Foothills Rural Community Ministry. This enduring relationship benefits both entities, as FRCM receives financial support from Park Coffee House, the coffee house draws from FRCM’s volunteer pool, and both share a central mission of community building. Years later, as for that very first performance, card tables are set up, candles are lit, coffee is brewed, and music lovers gather to be entertained. John Preston, who dedicated over 30 years of service as Park Coffee House director, has expressed that “as we sing along, we harmonize with one another. Through the coffee house the community is bound together by the spirit of authentic folk music.”

Summer is just around the corner, so before it's time for vacations, travels, or summer music festivals, Park Coffee House in Holland Patent will close the current season with a traditional Local Favorites Fundraiser concert on Saturday, June 8 at 7:30 PM.
On stage for this season finale will be solo performers Larry Beasley, Alexis Loomis, and Bill Kistner; the duo of John Preston and Becky Willsey; plus the groups Cincinnati Creek and Rattlin' Bog. Each performer and group is well known locally and all are true favorites of PCH audiences.
The musicians are volunteering their time and talents to benefit Foothills Rural Community Ministry, the parent organization of Park Coffee House. FRCM, a local non-denominational charity, has been helping our neighbors in need for over 30 years through its many programs, including School Back Packs and Christmas Baskets. More information on FRCM can be found at foothillsruralcommunityministry.org
Ice cream sundaes, generously provided by Stewart's Shops, and homemade desserts prepared by Park Coffee House volunteers will be served before the show and during the intermission. Coffee, teas, cocoa, and cider will also be available. A donation is requested for the refreshments, with the proceeds supporting the FRCM food pantry.
Park Coffee House invites you to gather with family, friends, and neighbors in their welcoming venue for entertainment by local performers to benefit a local charity. And, there will be ice cream sundaes and a variety of desserts to enjoy.
The doors open at 7:00 PM for the 7:30 PM show time. Admission for Local Favorites is $10.00, $5.00 for students, and no charge for children 12 and under.
You'll find Park Coffee House in the village of Holland Patent, at the historic Twin Churches, just off Main Street (NYS Route 365), across from the park.
In September, Park Coffee House will return for another season of fine acoustic music performed by talented local and regional musicians. Details will be released in August.

Breena is up from Virginia and we've been having a ball rehearsing for our concert Saturday night at the Park Coffeehouse. Come on out for the show and say "Howdy" to all three of us in "Wildflower"!!

It’s time for Wildflower at Park Coffee House in Holland Patent. The trio of Vicky Stockton Allen, Gail Brett, and Breena Branham are set to perform on Saturday, May 18 at 7:30 PM. The doors open at 7:00 PM.
Wildflower has been charming Park Coffee House audiences since its earliest years. Vicky, Gail, and Breena entertain with well-crafted harmonies, sing-a-longs, and humor. The talented Wildflower ladies also play their own accompaniment, sometimes on novel instruments.
Vicky, Gail, and Breena formed their group in 1985, performing in March of that year at Park Coffee House. They came together from their common volunteer work in theater involving deaf and hearing students at the Rome Art and Community Center. Gail is a retired teacher of the deaf and taught with Vicky for many years at the New York State School for the Deaf in Rome, where Vicky still teaches music and performing arts. Vicky and Gail are originally from New Jersey, hailing respectively from Lindhurst and Watchung. Breena is a music teacher of voice and piano, and now resides in her home state of Virginia. They still manage to see each other from time to time and continue to enthrall audiences with new and old songs in their signature beautiful harmony.
Vicky fronts the group with quick and zany wit, playing piano and guitar plus any instrument that exists, with Gail and Breena adding percussion or bass. While the three often switch vocal parts, Gail’s clear and crisp voice is usually on lead, with Vicky on the low harmony, and Breena on a lilting high. The close friendship and humor of Wildflower sway audiences to a fun filled evening of song. You can expect to laugh, sing, and enjoy a wide range of music.
Admission is $12.00, $5.00 for students, and no charge for children 12 years of age and under.
Before the concert and during the intermission, home made desserts, coffee, teas, cider, and cocoa will be available for a donation. Proceeds help support the programs of Foothills Rural Community Ministry, a local non-denominational charity and the parent organization of Park Coffee House.
Park Coffee House events are presented at the historic Twin Churches in the village of Holland Patent, across from the park, just off Main Street (NYS Route 365).

Park Coffee House's cover photo

Park Coffee House in Holland Patent opens its 2019 Winter/Spring season on January 12 at 7:30 PM with the Remsen Social Club, a fast paced local string band.
Group members include Bryan Davies (banjo, vocals), Tim Slusarczyk (upright bass, vocals), and Ben Carrier (guitar, mandolin, vocals). They will be joined on stage by Liz Friedel on fiddle.
After dabbling in the local bluegrass scene and being disappointed by the lack of variety, Bryan Davies decided to start a project of his own. Nicholas Burns and Timothy Slusarczyk both answered his call to form a group. After shuffling through some additional members, Ben Carrier joined the group that took the name Remsen Social Club as a tribute to their hometown. Together, they began in earnest to craft their own sound. These days, Liz Friedel on fiddle now joins in.
They call themselves a rowdy little string band, tearing their way around the local music scene, fueled by the sound of stomping feet. Remsen Social Club performs their own tunes and revised covers from groups including the Grateful Dead and Creedence Clearwater Revival. The Remsen Social Club always keeps true to their alternative, newgrass, Americana roots.
Admission is $12.00, $5.00 for students, and no charge for children 12 and younger. The doors open at 7:00 PM, and the music starts at 7:30 PM.
Homemade desserts, coffee, tea, cocoa, and cider served by Park Coffee House volunteers will be available for a donation before the show and during intermission. Proceeds from the refreshments benefit the local food pantry operated by Foothills Rural Community Ministry. FRCM, the parent organization of Park Coffee House, is a local non-denominational charity.
Park Coffee House is located at the Twin Churches, in the village of Holland Patent, just off Main Street (NYS Route 365), across from the park.
On January 26, Cincinnati Creek returns to PCH, followed by Jerry Dee and the Dovetones on February 16, Pepper and Sassafras on March 2, Jamcrackers on April 13, Wildflower on May 18, and Local Favorites on June 8.
