Hello Home of the Free! How fortunate are we to be born in the USA! I always think of my Dad during this time of the year. He was SO patriotic and served in the Navy before having us 12 kids. I remember finding his wool Navy uniform in the attic when I was a teen and I tried it on. I couldnít believe how skinny my Dad was as I saluted myself in the mirror. Then I got stuck for at least five minutes unable to pull the uniform over my head. Mom had to literally yank it off of me with all of her might. If I were a sailor gone overboard I would for sure sink in that wool uniform. I remember going to see the fireworks year after year with my gigantic family. We always had a bag of shelled peanuts and popcorn to share. It was very special time of year and oh how I miss my Dad and family to this day.

I will be celebrating what all those uncomfortable men and women in the military did to ensure our freedom, so easily taken for granted - this Wednesday at Chamisalís Pool in the afternoon enjoying the music of The Groovehounds! I LOVE THIS BAND. They are pro musicians and the Margarita Bar by the pool is open for business. Later at 4pm, my man, Greg is performing with a funk band at the new Seaside Fireworks at the Black Horse Bayonet Golf Course. Iím very excited to see him in action, he loves playing funk - and I love hearing it and seeing him in action. Looking forward to enjoying the fireworks.

THIS THURSDAY at 7pm AT BAKAI WINE & TAPAS - A POP UP CONCERT FEATURING JAZZ/BLUES PIANIST ROBERT TURNER! Heís also playing with the funk band at the 4th of July show and while heís in town, youíll be able to see him up close and personal. Seating is limited so get there early. You’ll be glad you did.

Friday weíll be at Chamisal 6-8 and Saturday evening my band Fields of Eden will be at The Beachhouse at 5:30 - free show outside, come watch us and the sun set in PG!

Check out the July calendar below and the Link of the Week, a song written by my friend, Lisa Nemzo, very well done girlfriend. Letís not forget what our freedom cost us. Enjoy! Have a playful week and thanks again for your great support.

Link of the Week !


If you click on the Link of the Week above youíll see a heartfelt video of my friend and fellow musician, Lisa Nemzo, who is an excellent guitarist, vocalist, songwriter, producer, engineer - she does it all and does it well. I’m very proud of her and her accomplishments. When I think of the 4th of July, I think of Memorial Day as they go hand-in-hand with me. May you take a moment to reflect of this gift of freedom we so easily take for granted.

Enjoy.

May your week be filled with great surprises.

Yer pal,

- Kiki Wow!
