Hello Yaíll -- what a great day to be alive! A beautiful day too. Iím all happy (and sad) that I was going through some plastic containers from the move and the most precious stuff to me, photos, speeches from Toastmasters (9 years worth) calendars, diaries, articles, etc. were sitting in water and ruined. I was putting together notes and photos for my book and thought all would be safe in the containers but not the case. It was excruciating to see it all ruined. One container, however, did not have water damage and had a few photo albums in it. I took some digital photos and what a hoot to step back in time and were it not for the photos, I would have forgotten to some pretty great moments in life.

This Friday Zack Frietas is at Caffe Trieste and Wes Kelley will be there and Sat. night my band will be at Trailside in CV. Iíd like to wish all Motherís HAPPY MOMíS DAY - I long for my momma and hope to see her one day in Heaven God willing. She was a living saint with a heart of love so big, a giant void in my life cannot be filled.

PLEASE MARK YOUR MAY CALENDAR TO BE AT HIDDEN VALLEY THEATRE IN CV FOR "A MUSICAL FEAST" FREE CONCERT - FREE FOOD! INCREDIBLE VOCALISTS FROM AROUND HERE!

The Link of the Week below shows some really cook kitchen tricks I never knew about - is always worth the scroll.

Lively Fun

Zack is one passionate performer, you will love his stories, voice and original songs.

About: When I tell people I play music, they naturally ask me, "What kind of music do you play?". The easiest way to explain that is to describe what they already know. Include a genre and a few bands I like, and that`s how I sound. At face value in a conversation that works just fine and then we can change the subject. But what people may not understand is I just simply write brutally honest music from my heart. As a songwriter, there`s particular things I`ll draw from, mainly experiences I have. I tend to work with themes such as depression, social commentary, angst, existentialism, & dependence (whether it be a substance, or love fr . . . More »

Great Food & Music

Our band is more and more solid each week that we play. We invite music friends to come up and play with us, so if youíre a musician, come on by and sit in with us. Itís a hoot - and the food is delicious! Happy to have Ron Beckett with us on bass.

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.

Great Songs - Great Fun

Mark Shilstone has quite a vocal range and some wonderful classic songs to sing for you while Ron Wilson holds down the rhythm. Very enjoyable.

About: Between them, Mark Shilstone and Rod Wilson have more than a centuryís 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 Loviní 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.
