Rolando setting up at a private event

Private party in the Oakland Hills



“We must learn to live together as brothers, or perish together as fools.”

Martin Luther King, March on Washington-1964

Hola, mi Gente!

Well, it’s that time, isn’t it!  The moment of truth is but a day, or a week, or a month away…  It’s been a hell of a ride, but it ain’t over yet.  In spite of record-setting voting, the voice of the people has gradually been rendered less effective by voter legislation applied by those in power and supported by conservative appellate and supreme courts.  It’s a disturbing trend.  Regardless of the outcome, please, let us heed the words and experience of the great Martin Luther King Jr.  I pray to God it isn’t too late for national healing and unity.

I’ll continue to do my little bit of healing through music.  I have but one public show this week (the rest are private), and it happens this Thursday night November 5, about 7-9:30pm at Massimo’s in Fremont.  It’s my only appearance there this month, so if you’re in the area, you’ve got to check it out.  Really nice meals and people, great night out.  Make your reservations for outdoor or limited indoor seating.  All the details are below.

I also have three appearances this month at Barranco Cocina Peruana in Lafayette.  This has been a fun gig from the start!  There is limited outdoor and indoor socially distanced seating and limited tables near me, so be sure to reserve early.  Details below.

I’ve got another public show next week at Casa Orozco Livermore, details below.  I’m fortunate to also have a good handful of private events this month.  Be sure to contact me if you’re up for music for your own private event.  (510) 282-7778.  Let’s do this!  See you at the show!

Ciao,

Rolando and Carlos Reyes playing at Barone’s last Friday

Some cause happiness wherever they go; others, whenever they go.”
-Oscar Wilde

¡Hola, mi Gente!

And some don’t seem to have a clue when everyone wants them to go.  Well, we’ll see about how many before long…  

Speaking of causing happiness, I had a nice surprise last Friday when violinist Carlos Reyes sat in with me at Barone’s in Pleasanton.  He was impressed with the place and will probably be back again in some capacity.

In the meantime, this Friday October 9 I make my debut at Barranco Cocina Peruana in Lafayette from 5:30-8:30pm.  They have an award-winning chef who created a lovely Peruvian menu sure to delight.  You’ll have THREE chances to catch me there in October.  I haven’t played publicly in Lafayette in a lot of years, so don’t miss it.  All the details are below, so be sure to make your reservations early, as seating is limited to ensure social distancing.  www.barrancokitchen.com, (925) 298-5668.

Then on Saturday I’m back at Casa Orozco in Livermore.  This has always been a blast to play and a fun hang.  They may put me in the front patio this time where more of you can see me.   All details are below. 

Last, there’s still time to be the hero of your block by bringing me to play your outdoor block or house part!  Call me and I’ll walk you through how we can do this safely and create joyful memories for your neighbors, friends and family.  (510) 282-7778.  See you at the show!

Ciao,

Just a slice of Sunday’s Garden Party in an expansive yard lined with redwoods, exotic flowers, deer and a creek

September 3, 2019

¡Hola, mi Gente!

For the last 10 days now, I’ve been doing my performances with a miserable lung virus.  It’s been challenging, to say the least.  My doctor says it’s the second wave of a nasty virus that’s been around since the beginning of this year and they’re getting inundated with calls and visits from patients.  The funny thing is that most audiences  couldn’t tell!  I’ve learned to hide it and avoid the trouble notes and use great mic technique and extend those driving instrumental sections.  At Sunday night’s private event, I even had them dancing into an overtime hour.  I really don’t know how I do this…

But I’m so glad I can!  I continue tomorrow, Tuesday Sept 3 at a venue I haven’t played in a year.  I return to Casa Bella in Sunol from 5-8pm.  This private event center will be doing one of these with live music — MAYBE two, depending on next month’s weather, so swing by for the sure date this Tuesday!  A rare opportunity for the public to enjoy the property.  Details below.  

Your new September Calendar also includes my return to the Walnut Creek Marriott this Saturday September 7.  See you at the show!

Ciao,

Rolando
