How are you? Thankfully, for me May and June have been packed with gigs with various bands. I did a nice private event at a winery in Woodside last night with Los Boleros, and we have more shows coming up in that configuration, including Yoshi's Lounge during the Fillmore Salsa Festival in July!
I wanted to alert you to a wonderful venue supporting live music in the South Bay, Azucar Latin Bistro. You may have seen all the Facebook chatter about what a fun place this is and all the bands that have been enjoying the audience there! In fact, I'll be playing there tomorrow (Sunday) night, 7-10 pm, with Jeff Chambers on bass, Murray Low on keyboard and Brian Andres on drumset. We'd love to see you!
Also, this Wednesday I'll be doing a free lunchtime concert with my 6-piece band as part of the Summer Sounds Concert Series at Oakland City Center, 12th and Broadway. That's Wednesday, noon to 1 pm. Oakland Tribune music critic Jim Harrington plugged it and said my band was one to watch! OK Jim, we'll take your word for it!
