Hello Good People in this Colorful Land,

I am so fortunate to hear and see such great shows and songs that say it all. I love hearing stories of the road and admire people that go on the road - its a long and winding one, that’s for sure. The Life of an entertainer is a do or die situation. I LOVED last Sunday’s featured artist: Scott Ainslie Delta Blues Master - he was so entertaining and the stories he shared were so rich.

This week’s featured show is our annual ’CONCERT ON THE COURT’ at Chamisal. This year’s featured band is THE RAYBURN BROS. BAND who will set up on Court One. This group is SO great and the entire band is as pro as it gets. This Saturday night, do what you have to and be there, it will be a beautiful day at a stellar venue with spectacular views. Don’t miss the fun - The Courtside Bistro will be serving a wonderful buffet and beverages will be on hand for your enjoyment. Hope to see you there, it will get you in the holiday mood.

The link of the week is a short video I made of our Big Sur Monday celebrating Tina DeMaria’s B-day. Like the music says, "Everyone" should see Big Sur and spend time there. Everyone. Always worth the scroll. Have a playful week and thanks again for your great support.

"Kenny Stahl thinks jazz flute is an appropriate vehicle for solidly phrased lines, masterful solo statements that build, swing, and drive, and that produce a whole range of timbres, tones, colors, and moods - and by god he’s right." Sherrie Tucker - Jazz Now magazine

Raised in Chicago, Kenny has studied and performed many forms of jazz, from the mysteries of Monk to the . . . More »

While we have hit our goal (and a little then-some) we are hoping to add to the pot to cover the unexpected treatment time and other unforeseen expenses. As before, if you can think of anyone who might be willing to help out, please forward this to them, using this link: https://www.gofundme.com/a-little-help-for-wes.
