4 shows sold out last month with local bands at the Tralf. Let’s get a date booked in March.
Tom Barone

What a great crowd at the Cove, especially on a January snowy night. Your band sounded great and should be proud of how much people get into your entertainment and how happy you make people in the crowd. That guy that was on stage for cake by the ocean was fun to watch. I always know there will be a large fun crowd and a good time at a Hit and Run show.
Big Mike

Dude, your voice gets better every year. It was a bummer that mine checked out on me. I’m still hacking away with bronchitis. Oh well, maybe (I can sing with you) next year. Here are links of a few tunes that I used to do with Venus Taxi (almost 20 years ago). Do you do any of these?

Hi Mark, We have it already planned for Sunday. We'd like you to play from 12-3pm. It will be super easy for you guys to get in and get out and then you can walk around the Taste if you'd like.

Ann

All set for Friday, Nov 4th at Nashville’s II (Old Howdy’s on Main Street by Transit). POF has free entry, no cover charge from 6:30-7:30 and we will have an complimentary appetizer plate out. After 7:30 normal cover starts and the band goes on at 8pm. We can celebrate your birthday together.

Mark, Deb & I want to thank you for playing "Melt With You" (and for the call-out from the stage). There's a reason why you have friends rather than fans. As usual, we had a real good time and hope to see you often during "indoor season". Thank you again.

I want to thank you for all the support you have given me over the years. I have taken many images of You and HnR over the years but last nights group of shots felt different from any other i have done before. The crowd shots I sent you I hope are worthy of your consideration and maintain the Friends at shows that you have captured over the years. Thank you for allowing me the privilege to come up on stage to get some great images.
Daniel J Ruggiero (Hitman Photography)

Hi Mark, This is Taz’s wife, our youngest is getting married. Do you still do weddings, she is one of your biggest fans. And you did such an amazing job at the last one. She is not sure on the date, but looking at the Pearl Street or the Hotel Lafayette next fall. Would either of these places be a problem and what is the cost? Thank you.

Hi Mark, We are all set for Burgerfest. I have attached the parking passes. We have scheduled Hit n Run to start performing at 7:30 and ending at 11:30 pm. West of the Mark will be performing immediately before you, between 3:30 & 6:30. Indigo Productions, will be providing all the amps, drum set-up, mics, and mixing. You can pull into the driveway to the Village parking lot, from Union Street between Buffalo and Center Streets. Pull up behind the stage, park and unload there. See you at Burgerfest.

Hello! I just left a voicemail on the number on your website. My sister's boyfriend is planning on proposing to her tomorrow at Queen of Heaven and we thought it would be cool if we got the band involved. I know you play a ton of good love songs so maybe you could call them on stage? Just seeing if you could help us out to create a special moment for them! If you could give me a call back, that would be awesome. Thanks again! Hope to hear from you soon.

Arlynn

Good afternoon Mark, I am replying to an old email exchange we had in hopes you remember us! My name is Keith and usually myself and a couple buddies come out to Buffalo from the Boston area to see the Pats/Bills game as well as attend your show. We were not able to make it out last year as my wife was expecting our third child but all systems are a go for this year. The Pats/Bills are playing on 10/30 this season we are looking to snag tickets once they go on sale and setup the rest of the weekend. Anyway, I hope all is well and looking forward to seeing you guys play again. Thanks!
Keith

It looks like Dave had a GREAT time.
Leslie

Hi Mark, My name is Mike and I work for Outer Harbor Buffalo. We are interested in booking Hit N Run for our July 4th Party at Wilkeson Pointe, 225 Fuhrmann Blvd. Would you be interested in preforming? Thank you,

Go get 'em, Mark!! Hope you have a great time at the summer shows this year. I'll try to make it out to a couple. BTW--7th Heaven has regrouped (new bassist) and we have our first show back TONITE here in Rochester! We'll be at Attitudes in Lockport later this month..Rock on,
Terry :-)

Now that we are through the holidays, my fiance and I are trying to move forward in our planning. We had the chance to watch you play at Santora's? Our wedding is at the Hotel Lafayette. We are hoping to have a band for 4 hours during open bar. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you,

Hi Mark, I am one of the co-directors of the Great Race.

If you could please let me know if this is a possibility that would be great. Looking forward to hearing from you,
Cheryl

Mark, If you play from 530 to 9 that's fine and if you need to break for a bit during that time it is also fine. No need for you to have someone come in to fill that time from 5 to 530. I have a sound guy in prior to you I’ll just get him to stay a little longer since he will be set up already. Thanks,
Bob

Great band. Thanks for many years of great music .

I know it's early, but if you're able to get me your availability for as far out as you can, that would be much appreciated! Thank you, and I look forward to hearing from you soon! Sincerely,
Arlynn

Dear Mark: The committee is well pleased with your services and most likely will ask you to return. Just can't say which day. It goes without saying I have enjoyed working with you and look forward to seeing you.
Tim

Hi Mark, We exchanged a few emails back and forth back in 2014 about your availability for a wedding this coming summer. I know you had previously said that a summer wedding would be exceedingly difficult given your prior commitments to lawn fete's etc but that you might be able to do something as you know my mother (Helene) and my fiancés father (Brad). I wanted to reach out and ask again if you would be available. If you are still not available, would you have any recommendations for anyone else who might be a good option. Thank you very much.
Richard

We are looking to see if your band is interested in performing at St Marys in 2016. The beer tent is usually packed and want to see if Hit N Run is available from 7-11
