Beautiful Music

I sure love playing a lot more than booking - and I sure hope you might like to grab some great Italian food and come hear some beautiful music. I’ll be playing some originals as well as ones we all love.

About The Fields of Eden

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.

He rediscovered his musical roots and heritage one day when he just happened to sing some old country tune and " Whoa, that felt right, just fell into place". Been singin country music ever since.

Wonderful entertainer

Great singer/songwriter/guitarist ready and raring to entertain the Monterey area. He’s from Santa Cruz - I dig him, so will you.

About Gary Blackburn

Gary Blackburn Like most artists, music has been my passion for a very long time. As a youngster, listening to my heroes that shaped and influenced me into what I am now, I still look to have my own personal style. When you listen to my songs, my intention is that "Gary Blackburn" comes across, instead of, "Hey he sounds like whatshisname". It has been a very long journey from my early days of playing at friend`s parties and wedding ceremonies to the present. Now I feel like I can say, "I have paid my dues to sing the blues". Those few close friends who know me will understand that, and when I get up on stage you can see, feel, and . . . More »

He’s BACK!

Rusty went through some major health hardships and thought he would not be able to play the guitar again. You don’t know that pain unless you know how to play and are told you can’t anymore. Well, miracles do happen! He’s back and will be playing solo, stop in and see a miracle.

About Rusty Preston

Howdy, folks! My name is Rusty Preston and I`m proud to introduce my inaugural CD "When We Called," a collection of heartfelt originals along with several American classics. As an Army brat, I grew up in Kentucky listening to bluegrass and country, and singing a lot of gospel at home and in church. After running away from home in high school and going on the road to finish high school, then on to college and an Army career of my own, I returned to Kentucky 40 years later to record this CD of personal favorites.
