It’s been a fun Spring with our performances, music rehearsals, doing studio recordings/mixes (prepping for a new CD/DVD) in between watching the Sharks and Warriors doing their thing in the Playoffs while the SF Giants baseball season got underway. We had such a fun time, as always, at our favorite venue, Angelica’s Historical Dinner Theater in downtown Redwood City in April. This has become our Home Base….with a warm and intimate ambience, super sound system, ( great sound engineer, Randy) and all the special people working the resturaunt and bar…..some commenting, ” we’re their favorite group to listen to while they work”. We performed for a lot of familiar friends and lots of new
friendly faces……including a fun group of Sorority sisters in the front row laughing, partying it up and later offering us a job for a Woman’s International Convention featuring Will Durst for early next year……and afterwards, to top off the fun time, a couple came up to the stage after our show to let us know how much they enjoyed the evening and that they came in for our show after hearing us for the “first time” while walking down Main Street earlier during our sound check…..we should open the doors and windows during our sound checks more often.
What a great time out in Santa Rosa, also in April…. a first time concert at the Berger Center at the Oakmont Village. It was a sell out (also, a waiting list) of 2oo plus satisfied folks giving us a standing ovation/encore at the end of the show with an invite from the promoters for a return engagement. The ambiance, stage setting, Green Room, treats and beverages, special attention, etc. were wonderful.
Our May and June calendars are filled with rehearsal sessions, recording dates, studio mixing/mastering for our new CD/DVD…..of our live performance at the 2015 Bear Valley Music Festival concert last July. In between the recording sessions during May we’ve been having a lot of fun rehearsing for our upcoming June 11 performance at the El Dorado Resort and Casino in Reno…..our first show in the “Biggest Little City”. Our first ever show in Reno should be a fun time and a full house with all the early show reservations coming in from Bud and Tod’s SAE Fraternity bros.
