Rock Tavern Chapter: Jerry Mitnick

September 10, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

The Rock Tavern Chapter of the Hudson Valley Folk Guild is pleased to be featuring Jerry Mitnick.
Jerry Mitnick, aka Minique Flambeau

I’ve been a performing and recording musician, singer/songwriter for over 50 years. (Yikes!) ..born in NYC, and now since ’88, home in the Hudson Valley. Toured the world with various bands, ….bass and vocals with:  ’71-87 with Bev Grant & The Human Condition,  NYC with The Lonely Rangers, The Meteors, Jo Marshal Band, recorded and toured Norway as minique flambeau for a year with The Rodney C. Riley Band (’79-80),  theater and musicals, The Natl Lampoon Show’s  “That’s Not Funny, That’s Sick” natl tour,…then Wdstk since ’88 to the present (Hang Time, the Phantoms, etc, …now  been performing acoustically locally and recording original music conveniently comfortable in home studio.

So I’d never have to work for a music-club owner ever again, I became one in ’88, owning, operating and performing at local music venues in Woodstock NY from ’88-2001, (Tinker St. Cafe, and the Joyous Lake, and have recently published a memoir of the years spent at Tinker st Cafe titled “The Music in the Walls, stories and anecdotes from TSC ’88-’98 “, available at/in most book stores and venues in the Hudson valley.

My mission in music is to have it set a mood to feel like we’re all here together…just please, don’t chew food when we’re singin’….


Review from show at the 2 Moon Cafe, Bklyn, ny, backabit:

This past fri. eve. I had the pleasure of experiencing Jerry Mitnick (aka Minique Flambeau) perform an accoustic gig at the 2 Moon Cafe in Park Slope. He captivated me and the crowd with his humor, story telling, and timelessly entertaining selection of music and lyrics,  at times encouraging us to join in and sing along.  Given the way he performed I believe his Folk-Bluesy voice has many years left in the old fart. His voice improves like a transcendent bottle of wine. He truly loves his craft. I hope this review inspires many of us to see him perform sometime soon.  Lots of love and creativity is inspired by his expression of music . Thanks Jerry.” –  Sam Bonsignore, Park Slope Gaze-att
