Hello Autumn Lovers,

Don’t you just love this time of year? Change is in the air. Very excited about this coming weekend at the beach. Come one - Come all - families, friends, sand dancers, sailboat lovers and Red Beans and Rice fans - this Sunday is our first kickoff event at The Monterey Beach House is a FREE BEACH CONCERT featuring the most awarded band in Monterey: RED BEANS & RICE Oct. 14th from 1-4pm. It’ll be great to take a day to slow down and just enjoying the day with friends on the beach watching the hundreds of sailboats. In addition, there will be gourmet burgers, garden burgers, hot dogs, sweet potato fries, etc. to make it easy on you and affordable. Their BBQ grill is the biggest Iíve ever seen so just come and enjoy the music and sailboat regatta with front row sand seats. Thereís lots of beach chairs there but if you want to bring your own or beach towel, go right ahead.

Also, keep in mind, if your company is planning a Christmas Holiday Party, please have them contact me, or better yet, invite them to come and check out this fabulous venue as they are offering half off prices during the winter months and 30% off food until April! Iím so fortunate to have found this excellent venue and great people to work with.

The link of the week below is absolutely HILARIOUS! What a voice, what a story, what a LOL performance. Thanks Ric Taylor for sending it in. Always worth the scroll. Have a playful week and thanks again for your great support.

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 »

Wonderfull Singer

Mark has a great setlist and voice - he can really deliver those classic songs with style. Great music to go with the great menu.

About: Mark has opened for Roger McGwinn and also John Sebastian, who commented, "Man, that`s one of the sweetest voices I`ve ever heard, man!" Their set celebrates the great song writers of the 60`s and 70`s, but also features contemporary tunes and some originals. Their sets are smooth and mellow, but infused with the energy and excitement of the era in which many of their tunes were born. If you want to know why the music of that era has remained timeless, check out Shilstone & Wilson.

Crooner & Keys

Heís a bluesy cat and I love him. One heck of a keyboard player too - heís got a song for you up his sleeve - and can teach you a thing or two about groove.

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."

Can You Help A Fellow Musician in Need?
WE LOVE YA WES! PLEASE FRIENDS, THEY JUST NEED A LITTLE MORE...

As some of you may know, our buddy Wesís cancer has decided to make a reappearance after three years of being in remission. This previous battle was hard on him physically, but financially tough on him and his wife, Deb. He will begin treatment in the next week or so, culminating farther down the line in the new and very promising Car-T cell treatment, and all hopes are high.

Allow me to insert a portion of an e-mail that I received from Wes, far better explaining the situation:
