Hello friends,

CLT El Dorado Resort, Reno

El Dorado Show, Reno Photo by Gail Wherritt

We had an absolutely magnificent show and tons of fun at the El Dorado Resort Casino in Reno last week.  We saw lots of old friends from our college years at University of Nevada, Reno and a whole bunch of Bay Area friends who made the trek through the Valley and over the hill.  It was a spectacular evening for us that we’ll remember for many years to come.  Our special guests were our bass player Mike’s two sons Bill and Scott, who absolutely brought the house down with their supreme talents and musicianship.  WE WAS ALL HAVIN’ A REALLY GOOD TIME!!!!  A big thank you to all who supported this momentous undertaking for our little group.  We love ya!!

Coming up soon, we will be returning to the Occidental center for the Arts on Sunday, July 10.  This is a quaint, relaxed and spacious venue in the beautiful community of Occidental  that we really enjoyed last year.  After that show, we and many attendees went down the street to a popular restaurant at the Union Hotel for a fabulous dinner.  It was a crazy and delicious evening.  We hope our friends in the North Bay can join us for another fun filled evening of the music we love to sing and a lot of goofing around.

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 restaraunt 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. 

If anyone took pics with their smart phones/ camera, especially pics with both Bill and Bert performing with us, please send them to our website email (Contact Page), we’d love to post them on our web site Gallery Page.
