Hello Good Peeps - Its been an outstanding week of great weather. I know a lot of you sports fans had a ball this weekend. Many blue moons ago, I was a cheerleader for six years of my life (probably because I had a big mouth and team spirit) but sports don’t matter all that much to me anymore. I don’t know why but I just don’t have that competitive trait. Being from Ohio State, I didn’t feel I fit in too well because I don’t care much about a ball going back and forth down the field and guys continuously head/body slamming into each other. Only great amounts of money would motivate anybody to do that! I’ve watched many yell at the TV as though the players could hear their strategic advice. When I see those packed stadiums I’m sure I’m missing something. Instead, I’ve been packing and moving, moving and unpacking. The next few months will be ’perusing the past’ and weeding through all of the papers, articles, flyers, notes of all the shows I’ve produced and gigs played, etc. - a trip down Memory Lane no doubt.

Enjoy the AT&T weekend as there is much to do so check out the calendar of events below. The link of the week is pretty cool, Tom Jones singing a CSN&Y tune with them - and the expression on their faces says it all. Do check it out. Thanks for reading and supporting live music. Enjoy the scroll.

This is one talented man - I can’t say enough about his talent and abilities both vocally and musically. Don’t miss Dan.

About: Dan Frechette has recorded 25 solo albums and many of his songs have been covered successfully by other artists, including Canada`s The Duhks, "You Don`t See It", Australia`s The Ploughboys, "Who Will Take My Place?", and Ireland`s Dervish, "My Bride And I". These masterfully crafted songs moved a reviewer for Sing Out Magazine to declare Dan "one of the most talented singer-songwriters I`ve heard in a long time." (Mike Regenstreif, Vol. 49 #3 page 136, Fall 2005, Sing Out magazine).

One Man Band

This man gets around, and brings his rig everywhere so he’s ready to play. He’s a looper, he’s a harmonizer, he writes great songs and covers great songs we all know.

About: BOSCOE’S BROOD (aka Sam Regalado) earned his musical stripes in the Los Angeles coffee house, bar and nightclub scene. Weaned on the music of The Beatles, his tastes and songwriting style eventually expanded and came to include progressive, alternative, harmonic and pop genres; those that today he blends into a creative acoustic sound. Many of his songs are often windows designed to observe the often-quirky lives and habits of everyday people. A veteran road warrior, Boscoe’s Brood has amassed considerable performance miles from San Diego through Seattle, having serenaded music lovers throughout the west with his with guitar, loop, . . .

Mr. Blues

Bringing you the big time blues and some instrumentals from Mr. Tom Lawson. He’s so much fun to listen to and has the raspy blues down to a deep cobalt blue.

About: Tom Lawson, although known primarily as keyboardist/vocalist with Monterey area bands such as Blues at Eleven, strips the music down to the core of the blues experience with his solo piano and vocal performance. The music is selected from the birth of recorded blues in the 1920s onward, but it is more than just a history lesson. Each song tries to capture the emotion of the original performance and to involve the listener in the story that each song tells. Tom says,"It is one thing to play the notes but to communicate emotion demands more. I hope to do this every time I am in front of an audience."
