Saratoga Springs Public Library

Please like this on the Library's page for me! Thanks again and I hope you enjoy!

If you missed September 18th's "GenX Speaks presents Woodstock '99: The End of GenX," watch Chad Koenig of Koenig Games discuss the highs and lows of the infamous music festival.

Program Description: Join Local Entertainer, Emcee and Trivia Host, Chad Koenig (aka "Chad From Albany") who will discuss "Woodstock '99: The End of Gen X". He will recollect his memories from that weekend, as well as the performances on stage (which got overshadowed by the later occurrences), the chaos that ended the festival, and the REAL reasons why the festival ended the way that it did.

Right now, Tommy Shaw is at an event honoring him and other members going into the White Castle Hall of Fame (Yes. He is there right now and having a great time). Tommy Shaw is in the White Castle Hall of Fame but he (and Styx) have never once even made the ballot to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Let that sink in.

For those of you that were interested in the webinar that I was so kindly asked by Saratoga Springs Public Library to host on Woodstock '99, here is the link to the recorded section which as the slideshow that I made and told stories from. I would love for you all to click the link and LIKE it on the library page to show their GenX Speaks program support! I'd love to work with them again! THANKS!

The first time I saw #VanHalen was in 1998 with Tim Jones and we were front row in front of Eddie's speaker. I watched him play for two hours literally inches from me. And right after the part where it kicks in during "Right Now", Eddie ran over and gave me five. It was like a religious experience. His loss has numbed me. It's like a punch to the gut. He wasn't another guitar player. He was the rock and roll equivalent of Mozart. A genius. Thank you for all that you have given us. -Chad From Albany

One of President John Tyler's Grandsons Has Died

One of my most popular OG trivia questions now must be changed.

Lyon Gardiner Tyler, Jr. died on September 26, 2020—175 years after his grandfather John Tyler left the White House in 1845.

I was humbled to be asked by Saratoga Springs Public Library to be a guest speaker for their "Gen X Speaks" series. They asked me to choose a topic and I thought my experiences from Woodstock '99 would be a good historical topic of conversation, including what people know and don't know from the controversial festival. I think this will be a fun webinar so if you, or you know anyone of ANY age that is interested in music or local history, I think they would enjoy this, learn a few things, hear some interesting stories and share a few laughs. It's also likely the only time you will hear my voice this year! Here is the link to register: https://sspl.libcal.com/event/6921254

RIP to the master of comedy. Carl Reiner was an untouchable genius. Thank you for generations of laughs.

Unfortunately, as every other great tour is being put on hiatus, it seems like the restaurant restrictions will be putting a halt on the Chad From Albany Reunion Tour. I have no idea, as nobody does, on when it will resume. I will let you know as soon as I do. Please be safe and listen to what medical professionals are saying right now. #ThisSucks

In the past several weeks, I have been contemplating retiring from doing trivia. Dealing with it takes to be a self-employed independent contractor in entertainment is obnoxious, especially these days. However, I realized if I didn't, I'd be miserable, and the reaction from my regulars was very moving. I enjoy what I do too much, even with everything that it entails. That said, I want to announce my return back to the weekly trivia scene after my surgery with THE CHAD FROM ALBANY REUNION TOUR. I will, of course be back @ Peabody's Sports Bar and Grill on Tuesdays, starting 3/24, and my new venue- every Thursday @ Spare Time Clifton Park and City Sports Grille! on either 3/26 or 4/2 (details coming soon). I actually had a Wednesday night to announce but they backed out today (this is what I'm talking about) so I will eventually get a Wednesday night soon enough. I look forward to seeing you all very soon! And remember to support your local businesses.... thats the ONLY way to keep your favorite establishments going strong.

Heads up, folks. I will be making an announcement on the future of Koenig Games on this page tomorrow around 4 or 5pm.

1/5/20 UPDATE FROM CHAD FROM ALBANY: Happy new years, all. I wanted to let everyone know my status here. So although I dont have any return dates confirmed quite yet, and probably wont until I see the surgeon at month's end, but it does still look like I'll be good to go come March 1st (or so). Everything is healing as planned. I start PT on Tuesday (Happy birthday to me...) and that is planned for 6-8 weeks. I still can't walk yet so obviously I cant drive, but I'm starting to put weight on it so thats progress. I look forward to coming back to Peabody's Sports Bar and Grill. I'm also waiting for confirmation on Singlecut, and also looking for one or two other locations closer to home for me, as the travel all the way to Saratoga every day is taxing. So if you have any suggestions or know anyone looking, please PM me on my personal accounts. I cant really confirm anything yet but happy to talk to people. Thanks again, all! Love, CFA

IMPORTANT NOTE: As many of you have known, I will be having to take a leave of absence from being able to host trivia for a while- starting November 1st. I have held off a surgery that I found out that I finally needed until this winter during my slow work times. For those who haven't heard the story 100 times, here it is... I have a lifelong issue called Tarsal Coalition in my right foot. I have never been able to move my foot being the joints are all fused together. I have had a life of chronic pain in it that I have just dealt with. Earlier this year X-Rays showed that my foot is now turning inwards so I have needed custom shoe inserts so the left side of my foot could touch the ground. This is a major case that will involve defusing them, and then a reconstruction of bones in my feet for stabilization. I will be in 3 different casts over a period of 4 months. Dr. John DiPreta of Capital region ortho told me that I will have to stay off the foot for about 4 months. Being the surgery involves very sensitive, small bones and joints, I cant really be out anywhere as I will be susceptible to further damage. My trivia @ Peabodys will be covered by an outside party during this time and I will be returning to Singlecut in the Spring. I also have other places lined up for work when I get back as well and will give those details when I learn more about when I can get back in the saddle. Obviously, this is something that I don't want to deal with but important if I want to be able to walk comfortably for the rest of my life. This will be a difficult season for me as I have to have my office moved upstairs and my bed moved downstairs to be on one floor as I cant use stairs. However, I am incredibly excited to be able to work (and believe me... I'll be working probably 12-14 hours a day because my OCD and anxiety wont let me sit still) on more material, which has always been my constant struggle. At 3 hours a category prep time on average, I have been spending my time making material instead of growing my business that I have worked so hard at for the past (WOW) ten years. I want to sit on a trove of new, fresh, fun material and build my corporate business, as well other fun ventures for everyone to enjoy. It will be a day to day process and I promise that I want to be back at work as soon as both myself, and my doctor, say that I should be OK to. I will not be heeding the advice of people who use google or WebMD for their medical information. I am one of those old-school guys who actually listen to the doctors who know my situation. I will be back as soon as possible. I will be finishing up this month at all of my regular accounts and then I'll be housebound through the winter. My loyal friends and regulars have shown much support for me as I have to get this done. And I'm confident that you will be back when i am ready. Obviously you can still reach out to me on my personal page and through here. I'll be around! Thanks so much for everyone's understanding and remember- nobody is more upset about this having to be done than I am. And I can't WAIT until I come back.
Your friend,
Chad From Albany
