“Rolando at a private event in Los Altos”
June 12, 2019
¡Hola, mi Gente!
I’ve been flying under the radar yet again, doing more private events throughout La Bahia. That, as well as investing the hours it takes to create these opportunities and bring them to fruition.
I do love flexing my creative muscles to tailor my resources from small intimate parties to large-scale private events. I just did one for about 35 people and am putting things in place for another for about 2,000 people. So if YOU have an event coming up, small or large, know that I have the experience to fulfill your vision and needs. Send me an email or text and we’ll make it happen! firstname.lastname@example.org, (510) 282-7778.
This week, in addition to another private event, I’m doing another fun public duet show this Friday June 14 with the irrepressible Estaire Godinez on Latin percussion and voice at Havana in Walnut Creek. When we do these, we like to dive deep into our repertoire into new, old and never done before tunes, including spontaneous new inventions that surprise even us. Make your reservations! Details below.
Then on Father’s Day, this Sunday June 16, Estaire invited me to play with her band in concert at the Dads and Jazz Festival at the Dunsmuir Historic Estate, also known as the Dunsmuir House in Oakland. The festival runs from 2-6pm, and we’ll be playing about 2:30-3:30pm. They’ll have 2 other bands and tons of activities your Dad will love. We’ll have a great Quintet featuring musicians you know and love. Check out all the details below.
This month I’m also happy to finally be returning to Barone’s in Pleasanton after being away 2 months. I’ll be there Friday AND Saturday June 21st and 22nd from about 7:30-10:30pm. Details below.
And last, I have the Rolando Morales Trio appearing on Friday June 28 at Havana in Walnut Creek. This will be the first time bringing in this version of the trio into this venue: master musicians David Belove on bass, the great Celso Alberti on drums, and Yours Truly on guitar, guitar synth and voice. Reserve your seats early, because it will fill up. Details below. See you at the show!
