Hello Good People in the Land,

Here we are at the end of September, like Wow! Time flies and yes, I did have fun. I get to enjoy so much beautiful music, great performers, and do my best to encourage you to join me. We so appreciate your time and attention each and every week and of course, its always better when you show up. This week we have a house concert Wed. night in Monterey featuring Flagship Romance; and don’t forget my band plays this Friday at Caffe Trieste in Monterey and Wes Kelley & the Black Hawks there on Sat. night.

Thank you to all of you who came out to see our School of Rock kids at the Barnyard. We got a lot of traffic and I know it lifts the kids up. I, too, was surprised to receive not one, but two standing ovations this past Sunday. That was shocking to me and greatly appreciated. I think I’ll go on living. Thanks to Michael Martinez for making that possible at CSA in PG. Sure made my day!

The link of the week below features early Annie Lennox & Dave Stewart (1977) in a band called The Tourists. Enjoy. Thank you for supporting live music and local musicians - and for reading my blast for so many years.

Great WRITER

Whether he is writing a book or a song - its well thought out and constructed in such an interesting way, you want to read it to the end, or hear it to the end. Very crafty artist. He will be accompanied by bassist, Ron Beckett and Harp player Richard Rosen.

About: About Wes Kelley Above all else, Wes is a storyteller. Over the course of his life, he has held dozens of jobs and traveled the world, gathering material for his novels, short stories and original songs. A founding member of “The Delta 88’s”, his songwriting has evolved from blues to what he calls “Mongrel Americana”, combining imaginative storytelling, rich chord progressions and subtle arrangements. An outstanding author, Wes has written ten books and you can read more about them at: http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/vegasohvegas

Great Combo

This duo plays some great covers, and gets a great response from the audience. Enjoy your wonderful Italian food with this delightful duo.

About: Between them, Mark Shilstone and Rod Wilson have more than a century’s worth of experience as musicians. Mark has fronted numerous rock and roll bands over the years and as a solo musician has opened for the likes of John Sebastian (The Lovin’ Spoonful) and Roger McGuinn (The Byrds). Rod, a percussionist who started playing drums in the 6th grade, is a fixture on the rock scene here on the Monterey peninsula, and along the way has opened for a number of headliners including Eric Burdon and the Animals, Cold Blood, Billy Preston and Tower of Power, just to name a few. Although they never met until both had lived here on the penins . . . More »

Tips for Happiness in All Times
TIPS for Happiness:

Try thinking of a creative vow and write it down. Make it something like: I vow to give at least one compliment to someone each day and I’ll try to control my anger by counting in my head before reacting.

Don’t think of happiness as a mood, but as a philosophy of life.

BE THANKFUL. A key component of happiness is acceptance - learning to be grateful of what you have. A lot of people know it but don’t keep it in their minds. Comparing your life with others’ is dangerous. Accept the gifts you have and know that no one is better than or less than anyone else’s. Keep a "gratitude journal." Ever . . . More »
