Love Dressed Up As Flowers

Providing Quality Live Entertainment for the Monterey Peninsula

Hello Good People in this Wild World - I was able to put some photos and music of our trip on my Facebook page. Hope you can grab a few minutes to view it, it says it all and would save me so much typing! The pictures spell out the joy and we had only expected a visit with Gregís mom and sister and ended up with a treasure chest of memories to keep - and a Les Paul Ukulele as a souvenir of the Gibson Factory! We played it Sat. night at Trailside and it was a hoot.

This weekend is a big party weekend being St. Patís with several live music options but REMEMBER THIS SUNDAY at The Lab at 4:30 is the impressive Sunday showcases featuring The Nell & Jim Band below. I highly recommend you get your pre-sale tickets for best seating when you hit the ticket info/link below

A super extraordinary link of the week at the end - attention DRUMMERS and people who love drummers. Never have I seen one like this before, nor will I probably ever. Check it out. Thanks for reading and supporting live music. Enjoy the scroll.
