The Yvonne Schmidt Band - Buffalo, NY
Update 3/12/13: This is Turtle Blues, performed by "The Yvonne Schmidt Band". This video was recorded by Roberta Harter, Joey Tells Mom at The Sportsmen's Tavern in Buffalo, NY. I put this video up to show the band. They are really good. Maria is a member in this band and sings a few songs, and sings back up for a bunch more. Her husband, Joey Tell is the Bass player here in this video. Please enjoy.
Thank You, Bruce Markwardt
3/1/12: BRAVO!!! A hand clapping, round of applause with a big ole BRAVO to the wonderful people that joined us for another whipped up show! A huge thanks to Richard Wicka for allowing us to invade his studio along with Yvonne Schmidt, Greg Bravo and Maria of the Yvonne Schmidt Band and of course the drop dead gorgeous Iann Miller, drummer from Almost Ready. We sure can't forget about our Poster Belly Button Child, Crystal (a.k.a. Lucy Love), for her surprise guest appearance!

The Yvonne Schmidt Band
After hearing 2 different pronunciations of Yvonne's name tonight I'm feeling a really strong need to spell out the proper pronunciation of Yvonne's full name in an attempt to correct any further mispronunciations.
OK here we go,
Yvonne Schmidt's first name sounded out is YEE - V - ON,
the last e is silent,
her last name Schmidt is pronounced SHMIT,
the c and d are silent.
anyway, back to the music Yvonne has produced 2 great, full length CD's.
Here's a link to her cdbaby site http://www.cdbaby.com/Artist/YvonneSchmidt
...scroll down to see more famous Schmidt's and even more about The Yvonne Schmidt band...
...other famous Schmidt's, Mike Schmidt, 1980 World Series Champion and a member of The National Baseball Hall of Fame.
I'm missing Hockey in a BIG way so I'd thought I'd include Milt Schmidt as well
(even though he played on the Boston Bruins)
As a player Milt Schmidt helped lead the Boston Bruins to two Stanley Cup Championships, 1 in 1939 and the second in 1941. After retiring from the ice Schmidt was promoted to general manager of the Bruins in 1967, as general manager Schmidt led the Bruins to 2 more Stanley Cups, 1 in 1970 and the 2nd in 1972. Schmidt was inducted in the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1961.
