ALOHA FRIENDS! Iím here but my mind is still swaying with the trees in Maui. I will never forget such a lovely tropical tradewind breeze on my skin, or the magnificent sunsets each night. Everything is a little different now that Iím back, not sure what that is but I donít know if Iíll ever be the same! Heavy sigh. Greg left his jacket in the closet there and I wanted to go get it, give me any reason to go back. I will forever be grateful that I have those memories in my mind. We got a couple of great ukulele songs out of the trip too! So much to be thankful for, isnít there? My daughter is flying in tonight so yet another blessing to be thankful for.

Thank you sweet readers - Iím grateful that you take a moment of your busy time to see whoís playing and whatís going on. We thank you for supporting the music, the artists, this business is tough but you all make it happen.

Our featured artist this weekend is cigar box master player, David Vidal, on tour from L.A. Heíll do a couple shows in Monterey, a radio interview with KPIG and then on his way north. Hope you can make your way out to see him/us.

The link of the week is a video of me playing bass in my spandex days. I love that bass/band and was with them for 12 years! Enjoy the scroll of rock n roll.

One Man Band

This man gets around, and brings his rig everywhere so heís ready to play. Heís a looper, heís a harmonizer, he writes great songs and covers great songs we all know.

About: BOSCOEíS BROOD (aka Sam Regalado) earned his musical stripes in the Los Angeles coffee house, bar and nightclub scene. Weaned on the music of The Beatles, his tastes and songwriting style eventually expanded and came to include progressive, alternative, harmonic and pop genres; those that today he blends into a creative acoustic sound. Many of his songs are often windows designed to observe the often-quirky lives and habits of everyday people. A veteran road warrior, Boscoeís Brood has amassed considerable performance miles from San Diego through Seattle, having serenaded music lovers throughout the west with his with guitar, loop, . . .

Greg met David Vidal in a recording studio in L.A., and came home and said, "you gotta book this guy, heís got some stellar songs." Itís true, I play his CD all the time, love his songwriting and songs stay with me. Hope youíll come and check it out - he plays a cigar box as well as guitar, harmonica. Very refreshing.

About: David Vidal grew up in New Mexico and Colorado, in a musical family that moved often. His father was a boogie woogie piano player, who also sang cowboy songs accompanied by guitar.

Link of the Week !


The link of the week is a throwback from my bass paying days, came across it while cleaning up my computer and thought you would enjoy. My younger, thinner, rocker days with my progressive rock band called Citadel.

Enjoy.

May your week be filled with great surprises.

Yer pal,
