Hello All Good People Everywhere! Happy to share that the readers of this independent entertainment blast is now over 8000 strong! Now I know that you donít always have time to read íthe whole thingí and I will say that its easier to read on a laptop or computer vs. your phone but some people tell me they are eager to read from top to bottom because they like the Link of the Week so much. So I genuinely and sincerely THANK YOU so much for reading and staying with me all of these years and supporting live local music here in the Monterey Peninsula. Being here is a huge departure from my 20 years in L.A. even though I was in the pulse of that city and the music scene was bustling there, there is a great music community here that is very much connected. The musicians are so kind and supportive of each other too. I also canít go without my gratitude for your kind donations that help keep this girlís train rolling. The musicians I work with are top notch and professional and I have no doubt that you will enjoy their music as much as I do.

Iíve posted some fun new photos below (Greg with hair!) and some treasures from the music museums we visited in Memphis.

My band, Fields of Eden, invites you to come and hear us both this week at Chamisal and next Sat. night for our first time at Barmel! We have added a new lead guitarist, Stewart Pilkenton, who delivers those delicious leads and licks to these great songs. Check out the calendar below as well as the Link of the Week for a chuckle if you are a coffee-caffeine-aholic. Have an excellent week.

This is a wonderful stroll down Memory Lane of music. I love their set list and their harmonies are super.

About: Classic covers from the 70ís to the 90ís - superb harmonies and a great time! This band comes complete with a song menu so you can pick out the song number you want and they will play it. Like live karaoke except they sing on key!
