Rolando a few years back in Kauai
September 12, 2018
¡Hola, Mi Gente!
I had turned down FOUR gigs this week, two of them private, because I was scheduled to be in Kauai this week. Unfortunately, two potential hurricanes had the same idea and were working their way to the islands to hit just after I would have, so I had to pull out at the last minute.
So I’m still here in Oak-town catching up on work and clients, and resting my back and shoulder a bit before jumping back into the fray on Saturday September 15 for a special public appearance at Havana in Walnut Creek, with the great Janice Maxie-Reid on keys and vocals. We don’t get to do this often, so I’m really looking forward to playing in duet with her again in this really fun room! We’ll probably include a couple tunes for the Queen of Soul. Details below.
And the other great duets lined up include the amazing Carlos Reyes on Saturday Sept 22; and Santana rock guitarist Carlos Hernandez on Friday Sept 28, all at Havana in Walnut Creek. 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.
See you at the show!
