Hello Good People Everywhere --

Wishing you a lovely day and at least one belly laugh because something tickled you to the core. If you canít remember the last time you roared with laughter then you are working way too hard. Some people have that laughing affect on me. My daughter has that affect on me - when weíre together - my stomach hurts from laughing. I know Iím pretty playful for the most part but sometimes, when you have to hustle for money, life can get intense. When I see people they often say, "You do so many things." So this week...I quit one of my jobs teaching water aerobics at InShape and I hope to get some breathing room and be in Nature again and that income will comein. Pun intended. It was time and sometimes, it’s just time, ya know?

This Friday nights is a little farewell party for our dear friend Eddie Gutierrez at Caffe Trieste. Come on by and hug our smiling friend a hug goodbye as he departs to Florida. My band, Fields of Eden will be at Cafe Trieste Saturday night with Rusty Preston back on the scene. Looking forward to that! Dan & Laurel will be featured at The Barnyardís Fourth Friday on the main stage. Details below on upcoming house concerts you canít blow off.

Enjoy the link of the week at the end of the most odd and fascinating things Iíve ever seen, truly entertaining. Be sure to check it out! As always, a big Thank you for supporting live music and keeping musicians alive.

Every 4th Friday of the month the Barnyard has a party open to all with Live Music - wine offerings - great deals. Be sure to catch Dan and Laurel - they have a new CD!

About: Meeting via a chance YouTube sighting and fueled by a rare musical chemistry, Dan Frechette, guitar/vocals, and Laurel Thomsen, violin/vocals, both powerful and magnetic talents in their own rights, prove that musical magic is not only possible, but alive and well. In a relatively short time frame, the Alt-folk duo has overcome adversity to circumnavigate North America, logging over 25,000 miles, 130 concerts, and releasing their debut CD. With influences ranging from Folk, Classical, Old Time, and Celtic, to Gospel, Jazz, Vintage Country, Rock N` Roll, Blues, and Bluegrass, Dan and Laurel flow seamlessly through genres, tempos, . . .

Beautiful Music

I sure love playing a lot more than booking - and I sure hope you might like to grab some great Italian food and come hear some beautiful music. Iíll be playing some originals as well as ones we all love. We will be playing with guest musician Rusty Preston who’s back on the scene and he’s such a great tasty player.

About: Singer/Songwriter, Kiki Wow, plays regularly throughout the Monterey Peninsula both classic favorites and original songs. Her engaging vocals and rhythm guitar hit a delightful and familiar chord that has her audiences singing along from the first song on. Greg Edenfield, drummer and mix engineer, puts the right rhythm to all of the songs. He`s got a different kit for each gig, really fun to watch. Ron Beckett is a great new bass player in the area. He`s also a mummy archeologist! Such a pleasure to have Ron keeping the bottom end full of rhythm.

Rosie’s is doing a few more live webcasts before they move their operation. Robert is my favorite country western singer cowboy musician - youíll just love him. Freshly recovering from a heart surgery - heís back in action with some great stories. Watch online at Rosieís Country Store on Facebook

About: A native Californian Robert Elmond Stone grew up on the road, a military brat in air force. `Used sing some of these old songs as a youngster with his mom. His father was big on jazz and classical so he grew up with lots of musical influences and began playin` young. Much music in the house. He rediscovered his musical roots and heritage one day when he just happened to sing some old country tune and " Whoa, that felt right, just fell into place". Been singin country music ever since.
