|Happy New Week! Thanksgiving was so awesome! So grateful to have my daughter, Jazmyn, come up from Burbank and she stayed several days. It was great, make that, superb - being with her again. We made a great Thanksgiving meal together, which is so much easier when someone helps you! We shopped, played cards (an old fashioned pastime) she helped me clean up my computer since I was running dangerously low of space on my hard drive (too many videos and photos for sure). We got massages, ate sushi, also had a couple of gigs, sang some of my old originals that Jaz use to sing with me from the age of seven on! She is an excellent harmonizer so she sang with me for years until she went off to college. Local Songwriter and Author, Wes Kelley, asked us to sing background vocals on a tune he wrote called "I See Rainbows In The Sky." We were in the studio Sunday recording it and I couldn’t get it off my brain all night. I took Jaz to the airport Monday morning and lo and behold - there was a rainbow in the sky! How magnificent was that? We found it more than amusing. |
Check out the calendar below - my featured Special Concert is THIS SUNDAY at The LAB in the Barnyard at 3pm - JOAN BAEZ & BOB DYLAN TRIBUTE - a very popular show because they do it so well. Great Sunday afternoon thing to do this Sunday. Details below - Also, don’t miss the great music going on below this new month as well as the link of the week! Someone asked me to post another video of me playing bass in my spandex days - so I did. I played bass & guitar for 12 years with Citadel. Had a lot of fun for sure. Learned a thing or two about the world of Rock ’n Roll. Enjoy the scroll.

He`s also a mummy archeologist! Such a pleasure to have Ron keeping the bottom end full of rhythm.|

Link of the Week !
I was harassed last week from several readers about the link of the week, my throwback video of my bass paying days with my rock band, Citadel. I was told I MUST post more of them so here’s another. If you want or have the time, feel free to browse around on that page of other videos - they range from short hair to wild clothes - but I really liked all of the songs and my band-mates.
May your week be filled with great surprises.
- Kiki Wow!
