Hello Sum Sum Summertime! Itís heating up around here and weíve been experiencing some really lovely days and cool nights lately. Itís great to have Greg back home sweet home from his recording session at Capitol Records. Iím always relieved when he makes it out of L.A.! A great jazz record was born and will be released by Robert Turnerís band. Now that the weather is nice, we love having our coffee in the morning in a beautiful garden listening to the talkative birds before I dash off to teach water aerobics and five other íthings to doí!

The calendar this month is full of variety from a beautiful dance troupe to bluegrass to classic rock and easy listening. My band, Fields of Eden, will be performing at Barmel at the end of the month for the first time and invite you to be there. Check out the calendar below as well as the Link of the Week and enjoy the incredible display and flight of birds, its impressive. Have an excellent week.

This is a BLUEGRASS night with a wonderful local band, Hilltown. Itís been awhile since Iíve seen/heard them but they sure are a crowd-pleaser.

About: Named after the little town that grew out of the well traveled Salinas river fording site of the mid 1800s, the newly formed four-piece bluegrass band Hilltown is sure to get your toes a tapping. All of the band members live in the Monterey area; three on hills overlooking the bay and the other just across from the old Hilltown site in Salinas--hence the name. Three of the band members, also of the venerable Fog Valley Drifters based mainly in Modesto, were looking for a way to stay in practice locally and invited guitar flat picker par excellence and singer Norm Green to join in. As happens with a lot of bands, things clicked an . . . More »

Wonderful Energy

K Mello is a local favorite and such a loving creature. She is pure passion and loves singing, its written all over her body.

About: Former members of The unDecided - this duo team is wonderful. Great vocals by K Mello as only she can get into it; and great guitarist (and drummer) Mike Mahoney. Together, with harmonies, their set list is terrific. Please drop and catch this rare show.
