Hello Good People Everywhere -WOW - do we have a new lease on life after returning from Memphis. What was a trip to see Greg’s mom who had been in the hospital with double pneumonia turned into a musical adventure of a lifetime. This trip included a tour of Gibson Guitar Factory (we bought an Epiphone Les Paul Ukulele), Sun Studios (Greg’s fav - he got to sit at the console), STAX Records (Soulsville), Graceland (Elvis Everything), Lorraine Hotel (MLK), Blues & Soul Museum, Beale Street in the rain, BB Kings (band played Walkin’ in Memphis as we walked in and for Greg’s B-day request they played The Sky Is Cryin’ by Elmore James for 9 minutes. We also hit the Memphis Drum Shop (another of Greg’s fav) and The Peabody Hotel for an incredible Bloody Mary and watched the ducks come down the elevator and down the red carpet to the lobby fountain (my fav). We ate the best BBQ ever, and we also did a tour of St. Jude’s Medical Center on behalf of my brother who died of Leukemia when he was a young drummer. He was diagnosed when he was 14 and died when he was 19 so this tour was a reminder of his suffering and the incredible progress made because of it.

A big shout out to those of you who are coming to the incredible shows we’re producing at The Lab. I’m so thrilled to have a venue for these outstanding shows where you can hear the show and meet the artists who have spent a lifetime in their craft. The next Sunday show there is Nell & Jim Band below. I strongly recommend you get your pre-sale tickets for best seating when you hit the ticket info/link below

Great link of the week below, about how Rock & Soul/Roll and musical legends like Elvis came into being. Check it out. Thanks for reading and supporting live music. Enjoy the scroll.

A local favorite and all round great entertainer - you are sure to enjoy him.

As a solo artist and songwriter with A&M Records, Tom wrote songs recorded by Country Music Hall of Fame inductee Barbara Mandrell and rock legend Dobie Gray. Today Tom is still writing classic feel good tunes, but this time he`s performing them, too! Now Tom is back home on the Monterey Peninsula and will be releasing his highly anticipated fourth album this summer. Tom`s currently playing solo acoustic shows throughout California as well as shows with his band, The Juice, which includes Dave Evert on guitar, Scott Rudoni on bass, and Bill Kucher on d . . .

Great Food & Music

I always invite music friends up to play with us, so if you’re a musician, come on by and sit in with us. It’s a hoot - and the food is delicious! We love Carmel Valley!~

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.

This great group will kick up the dirt and make you dance in your seat, even stand up and dance. They are taking over the scene in Monterey - come early for best seating.

About: The Proudest Monkeys is a musical collective operating out of Monterey, California. In 2016, band leader Trevor Lucier released the album, "Destruction of the Species", to a welcoming, and supportive local music scene. Following a successful first show, which was declared one of the area`s best shows of the year by local publication The Monterey County Weekly; the rest of the group came together around a mutual conviction that music is a potent resource in the movement to bring humanity closer together. With this ideal in mind, The Proudest Monkeys have set out to perform all over the Central California Area in an effort to brin . . . More »
