IT’S BEEN A SONGFEST THIS SPRING…..Music and CD/DVD plans moving closer to the finish line

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.

Another sold out performance at Pacifica…..Thanks Mildred Owen’s concert goers

Thanks to all who attended our performance at the Mildred Owens Concert Hall in Pacifica.  A fun time was had by all, especially us.  It was truly a special evening with the appearance of long time friends and talented musicians, Bill  Sanders (our bass player, Mike’s, son) on the banjo and Bert Johnson, formerly with the Touch of Grass, on the mandolin…….they brought the house down with their solo instrument breaks and closing vocals.  A big thanks, also goes out to Morning and Lee and all the other volunteers who made the evening a big success , especially the expert sound technicians, Tom and Rick.  We’re already looking forward to a return engagement.  Thanks again to all who made this happen.

2015 Memories end with the Lindsay Theater performance

Lindsay Theater 2Hi County Line Trio friends.  Hope you are enjoying the Holiday Season as we  are.  We just completed our final performance for 2015. …..and what a good time it was.   A very enthusiastic audience welcomed us at the Lindsay Community Theater on Saturday, December 5, for our  Kingston Trio Tribute performance.  This was our first venture to the  Central Valley of California…..and it was a memorable one.  Even the drive there gave us special meaning to our first album’s title song, “Going Home” or as it’s sometimes called, “California”.  You really appreciate the lyrics “…….worked her fields and worked her orchards, up and down her (California) Central Valley……..”.   It was especially moving to conclude our performance with that song.  We drove through some of the most picturesque and fertile farm land in the State to get to  Lindsay, which is located about 40 miles south east of Fresno just off Hwy 99.  Lots of white fences surrounded quaint and sometimes very upscale farm homes lining the highways showing off their pastures with grazing cattle, dairy cows, sheep and goats…..alternating the landscape with various crops and orchards of oranges, almonds, grapes and of course olives.  After all this is the home of the Lindsay Olives.

We began the afternoon meeting Jim, our host and the Lindsay Community Theater Manager….and Charles, a music teacher in Lindsay and another theater volunteer …..both doing an exceptional job at getting things set up and doubling as sound and lighting engineers. After the sound check we were all ready to sample some of the local dinning.  And we did….a great meal was had by all at the popular Mexican restaurant , Chinas (pronounced Cheenas) right around the corner  from the Theater.Lindsay Poster

The show was electric and the evening was exciting.  We came up a little short of filling the theater but the warmth and enthusiasm from the friendly folks of Lindsay made up for that 10 fold.  It was a GREAT night with an early  invitation to come back next year.  Thanks so much to Jim, Nancy and Charles and all the other volunteers for making it a truly memorable Holiday Show at Lindsay.  We’re looking forward to return engagement.

Earlier in November we had another very successful show at Angelica’s Dinner Theater in Downtown Redwood City. We were trying an early start time for our Sunday evening show, which proved to be a big hit.  Angelica’s is one of our favorite venues and there was a special feeling that night with the beginning of the Holiday Season.  Just having recovered from a previous nite of Trick ‘n Treating and Halloween parties and despite all the “candy hangovers” the room was filled with an enthusiastic and responsive audience….. lots of new faces and many familiar friends.  Let us take this time to thank all of you special folks who came out over this past year and continue to support our shows and motivate us along this 46 year journey of performing  Kingston Trio tunes and other 60’s folk music…..and just plain having fun.  As always, a big thanks to Peter and Angelica and Randy, the sound/light engineer, who makes us sound/look so good.

Merry Christmas to all and have a Great 2016 !
