Fall For Something

Providing Quality Live Entertainment for the Monterey Peninsula

Hello All:

Itís a new day and I have 3 bouncing, hopping, kittens in the house. They are so entertaining! Donít you need one in your house? If so, do hit reply. Greg and I are gearing up for our honeymoon and it sure would be nice to have homes for these kittens before we go. They bring a lot of joy if you need more joy.

I will be playing this Friday at the Trailside Cafe in Carmel Valley with Ron Beckett and mystery guest! We play from 6-9 if you want to pop in.

The link of the week below is always worth the scroll. Rock ín Scroll everybody, thereís a great house concert coming up featuring Karrie Anderson Pavish on tour from Alaska and she is sensational, bluesy and love her stories about living in such a remote, cold place. Enjoy. Thank you for supporting live music and local musicians - and for reading my blast for so many years.

He’s True Bluesy

Keyboard player for Blues at Eleven - solo player of old time blues and R&B - he’s got a sultry voice and some great stories - I just love him.

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."

About: Keith Batlin`s vocals and harmonies cover a truly amazing range of styles and comlexities easily switching textures from honeysilk to smoke. In his voice you can hear traces of Al Green, Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix and Robert Plant. Keith was born in Carmel and raised in Seaside CA and Honolulu HI. Keith comes from a musical family and began playing guitar at 13 and tuba in the King Jr high and Monterey high school bands. He received a scholarship from The Monterey Blues Festival, recognizing young talent, and in 2000 he enrolled in The Musicians Institute of Hollywood CA.

Super Musician

He’s one of my all time favorite musicians/people, so kind, easy going - and musicians don’t get any better than this cool cat.

About: Kenny Stahl is a jazz flutist, seasoned recording artist & composer, and one of the hottest jazz flute performers today.

He has worked with Stevie Wonder, Jaco Pastorius, Ira Sullivan, Cal Tjader, Richie Cole, Herb Jeffries, Paul Horn, and many others.

"Kenny Stahl thinks jazz flute is an appropriate vehicle for solidly phrased lines, masterful solo statements that build, swing, and drive, and that produce a whole range of timbres, tones, colors, and moods - and by god heís right." Sherrie Tucker - Jazz Now magazine

Raised in Chicago, Kenny has studied and performed many forms of jazz, from the mysteries of Monk to the . . . More »
