¡Hola, Mi Gente!

Summer’s winding down and I’ve got one last public date for August, and it’s a good one.  This Friday August 31stI return to Havana in Walnut Creek, this time with my Grammy-winning friend from Venezuela in tow, the great Latin percussionist-vocalist Omar Ledezma.  This marks his debut at this venue and our first time playing together in about 5 months, so we’re both looking forward to it.  Don’t miss it!  Details below.

My September Calendar kicks off this Saturday September 1stwhen I return to the Marriott Walnut Creek Lobby Lounge and Bar for the last time of this year!  It’s just the way the calendaring fell.  I greatly enjoyed my debut here a couple weeks ago.  It was a sweet, big room with great people.  The acoustics enhanced my rich, full tone to an attentive audience and together we transformed the room into a little concert hall with guests from all around the world. I won’t be back again until next year, so please put it in your book and don’t miss it.  Spread the word!

I also have some special duet gigs in September at Havana in Walnut Creek, starting with the great Janice Maxie-Reid on keys and vocals on Sat Sept 15the amazing Carlos Reyes on Saturday Sept 22; and Santana rock guitarist Carlos Hernandez on Friday Sept 28.  These are all exciting and unique combinations with different repertoires, so if you come to each of them, you will be thoroughly entertained each time and amazed at the different talents each musician brings to the table!  (And maybe by the versatility I possess to shift with the styles each musician brings to the show!)  Details below.

I also have a good handful of appearances at both Maria, Maria restaurants in Walnut Creek and Danville.  All details below.  See you at the show!

Ciao,

Rolando

¡Hola, Mi Gente!

I completed an exhausting but satisfying week of public and private events, including an all day wedding in the Oakland Hills Saturday (with a lot of stairs!), the last part done with my talented friend Sonya Jason on sax.  It’s been a great feeling making deep musical connections with new multi-ethnic audiences from around the world.  Lots of love, happiness and new friends.

Speaking of friends, my lovely friend Chenda Chhi, who is a survivor of the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia, has created a wonderful organization, The Coral Tree Foundation, which aims to help the Cambodian children, descendants of the Killing Fields, to overcome poverty and receive an education.  Tomorrow, Wednesday August 22nd from 6-9pm in Menlo Park, they’re throwing a Cambodian Food & Fine Wine Tasting event.  I encourage you to look into this.  It’s a worthy cause and a heart-warming opportunity to do something good for the world while having a great time doing it.

I am unable to make it, but I arranged for my former partner of Passion & Grace, guitarist-vocalist-song writer Carlos Godinez, to perform a set for the event.  You’ll meet wonderful people, enjoy expertly poured libations by a gorgeous, talented bar tender, enjoy Cambodian food, bid for exotic and wonderful goods and services and hear Carlos’ great music.  I wish I could go!!!  All the details are below.  If you can’t make it, feel free to make a donation.  http://www.coraltreeeducation.org/upcoming-events/.

I’ll mostly be doing private events this week except for this Saturday night, August 25th when I return for only the 2nd time in about 1½  years to Piacere in San Carlos on solo guitar and voice.  Spread the word and lets have some fun in the bar!  Details below

And remember, on Saturday September 1st, I’ll be returning to the Marriott Walnut Creek Lobby Lounge and Bar for the last time of this year!  I told you before, scheduling this one has been a challenge.  I greatly enjoyed my debut here a couple weeks ago.  It was a great room with great people!  The acoustics enhanced my rich, full tone to an attentive audience and together we transformed the room into a little concert hall with guests from all around the world. This will be the last one I’m doing this year, so please put it in your book and don’t miss it.  Spread the word.

See you at the show!

Ciao,

Rolando
