Rolando Morales August 2019 Calendar

July 30, 2019

¡Hola, mi Gente!

I learned some new challenging material for a big show coming up this Saturday night, much in the Brazilian Latin-jazz mode.  On Monday we had our one rehearsal and played it for the first time.  We’re about ready.  With this crew, you can’t go wrong.  And you’re invited.

This Saturday August 3, I’ll be joining forces with the charismatic Latin percussionist-vocalist Estaire Godinez for “An Intimate Evening 2019” at the Dunsmuir Hellman Historic Estate in Oakland.  They’ll have about 4 music stages, great catering, wine and beer tasting, tours of the mansion and so much more.  It’s the ultimate all white attire summer party!  And we’ll be playing with a slamming 6-piece band: Estaire Godinez who will be leading the band, Bob Crawford, David Belove, Celso Alberti, Beatrice Godinez and Yours Truly.  Check out all the details below.  It should be a really fun Oakland evening under the stars.

And that’s a great way to kick off our new August Calendar.  We’ve got a few public shows in store for you, including a cool version of my Trio which hasn’t played together publicly in many years, making it’s debut at Havana in Walnut Creek on August 17.  David Belove on bass and the great David Flores on drums.  I’m really looking forward to playing with these two again!  Details below.

See you at the show!

Ciao,

Rolando

“Drew Youngs, Celso Alberti grooving with Rolando Morales at a private event last Saturday”

May 28, 2019

 ¡Hola, mi Gente!

I’ve been flying under the radar again, doing some private events that really kept me occupied. One kept me jumping for a couple months and we just finished it Saturday night.  It was a performance with my 6-piece band, sound and lighting crew.  I was proud of my guys: Celso Alberti, David Belove, Omar Ledezma, Drew Youngs, Bob Crawford, and Jeff Cressman running sound.  We made our client very, very happy.  No small feat, considering he played bass in the early days of the Eagles. 

Remember, we can do this for YOU as well!  Feel free to contact me if you have an event or party coming up and can use some live music.  We’ll contour a package to meet your needs.  Don’t be shy and contact us early!

This week is largely private again, but I do have a fun duet show coming up this Friday May 31st with the irrepressible Estaire Godinez on Latin percussion and voice at Havana in Walnut Creek.  It’s been several months since she’s performed with me at this venue.  Last time, we really got the place going, and we certainly intend to do so again.  Make your reservations!  Details below.

We’ll have much more for you next month.  I’ll have the full June Calendar for you next week after I confirm details.  You can also check my website Calendar Page as we get closer, as I’ll probably be posting there before the letter goes out.  See you at the show!

Ciao,

Rolando

Rolando Morales shares fun times and updates his calendar for the last few March 2019 upcoming performances with us.

¡Hola, Mi Gente!

I’ve been putting another private event together for a buddy who used to play bass decades ago with original members of a little band called The Eagles. One of his band mates at the time, lead guitarist Don Felder, composed and played on many of their early hits including “Hotel California.” He’s a 4-time Grammy winner and inductee of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

My buddy invited me to see Don’s show last Monday night in Livermore.  He’s still got it.  Rockin’, crooning and owning the stage.  His solid band (and they sang 5-part harmonies) play with such legends as Kenny Rogers, Dave Gilmour (Pink Floyd), Joni Mitchell and even White Snake, so they brought a spectrum of talents to the table.

I really enjoyed hanging with him afterwards back stage.  We connected and he shared lots of stories and enthusiasm.  Special night.  Sounds like he may swing by our private party, along with some other Eagles…

In the mean time, I have a fun new Quintet public show happening this Saturday night, March 23rd.  My buddy, drummer Pepe Jacobo, invited me to co-lead a band at Nick’s on Grand in South San Francisco from 6-9pm.  He provides himself on drums and his Latin percussionist Mike Ramirez.  I secured my keyboardist Bob Crawford who plays with Pete Escovedo and many more; as well as master bassist Dewayne Pate who played with Arturo Sandoval and so many more.  Throw myself into the mix on guitar and voice, and we’ve got something fun to share with you!  All details are below in the Calendar.  It’s a rare San Francisco Peninsula appearance, so don’t miss this!  www.nicksongrand.com, (650) 989-8452.

There’s more happening next week, including Barone’s in Pleasanton and the Walnut Creek Marriott Lobby Lounge, and even a little recording session.  Details below.

Ciao and see you at the show!
