Goodbye, Bayou Cafe! Hello, Bayou Cafe!

Friday, March 29th, 2013

Mike Philip – formerly of Jillian’s – took over downtown Albany’s Bayou Cafe back in December, but now he’s decided to change the name to the Hollow Bar + Kitchen.

Meanwhile…

Ironically, Shane Spillenger – also formerly of Jillian’s in Albany – has just signed a lease to open a new Bayou Cafe at 2638 Route 9 in Malta, just north of Northway Exit 12. Spillenger is hoping to open the new Bayou Cafe by June.

And just for the record, Ralph Spillenger – yes, formerly of Jillian’s – is still at the helm of the original Bayou Cafe in Glenville.

Got it?

Five Firsts: Danielle Gaudin

Friday, April 29th, 2011

Danielle Gaudin

NAME: Danielle Marie Gaudin
INSTRUMENT: Singer/songwriter/pianist

1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … I had to truly think this one through! Sadly, it was Paula Abdul’s, “Forever Your Girl.” I wanted to be a fly girl for “In Living Color,” so I bought that tape to practice my dance moves.

2. THE FIRST CONCERT THAT I EVER SAW WAS … B.B. King! My dad and I went together, and every year after, we made plans to see him and Lucille. He’s an incredible performer.

3. THE FIRST MUSICAL INSTRUMENT I EVER OWNED OR PLAYED WAS … Piano. I started lessons when I was five. I cried when my Mom made me practice, but eventually I grew out of that ;)

4. THE FIRST SONG THAT I EVER PERFORMED IN PUBLIC WAS … Some song I had written with my BFF at the time. We used to play guitar and sing at Cafe Dolce on Jay Street.

5. THE FIRST BAND I WAS EVER IN WAS … I’ve never really been in a band! I sort of just sing with everyone and anyone that will let me!

Danielle Gaudin – the grand prize winner of the Capital Region’s Got Talent competition held at the late, great Revolution Hall back in the fall of 2009 – is about to release her third CD, “Lucky Number Three.” The disc will be unveiled at her CD release party at 8pm on Saturday at the Bayou Cafe in Glenville.
