¡Hola, mi Gente!

After my car repairs, I did a few more gigs and then drove down to my mom’s in So Cal last Monday to join my brother visiting with his family from Michigan.  They had already been there a week and were finishing up their last 4 days.

My little twin nephews are growing up, getting ready to start high school.  Rocco has stretched to 5’9, Vincent about 5’7.  Both had been playing a lot of hoops since I saw them last.  When I told them over the phone that I was driving down to kick their butts on the basketball court, Rocco just chuckled and said, “I don’t think so.”  

A couple days after I got down there, I taught Rocco (guitar) and Vincent (trumpet) an Ennio Morricone piece I arranged for them that morning to play as a duet and played the tune for my mom.  They are both already quite accomplished for their ages.  I think Rocco is better than I was at his age. 

After working a couple hours, Vincent then said, “You wanna go out and play basketball?”  They got big smiles and were ready to kick my butt.  We went out into the hot sun and I schooled them.  They did get a lot better, but they didn’t have a chance.  I beat them 1 on 2, then we did about three 2 on 2 games with my brother in different combinations.  Then I moved ever so slowly into the house and passed out for about 90 minutes on the couch. To quote Danny Glover in “Lethal Weapon,” “I’m getting too old for this shit.” And that’s an old reference. 

I made it back in time for more private shows, including a very special, intimate wedding held on the beach in Montara.  It was a heart-warming international gathering of love.  It was an honor to play for it.

I have a combination of private and public shows all week.  Try not to miss this one: This Friday July 19, 9-11:30pm, I’m finally back with the great keyboardist-vocalist Janice Maxie-Reid at Havana in Walnut Creek.  With her sweet voice, funky playing and charm, she always is an audience favorite.  We’ll be doing our expanded repertoire of classic R&B, soul, and Latin blends and inventions.  Swing by!  Details below.

Then this Saturday July 20, I’m back on solo guitar and voice at the Marriott Walnut Creek in the Lobby Lounge from 6-9pm.  Details below. 

And remember that next week I’ll have another version of the Rolando Morales Trio appearingon Saturday July 27, 9-11:30pm at Havana in Walnut Creek.  This will be the first time we play together as a trio: Grammy-winning Latin percussionist-vocalist Omar Ledezma; bassist from Arturo Sandoval, the funky Dewayne Pate; and Yours Truly on guitar, guitar synth and voice.  We’ll be stretching like never before.  Reserve your seats early, because it will fill up.  Details below.   See you at the show!

Ciao,

Rolando

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 28all 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!

Aloha,

Rolando

Rolando Morales and Omar Ledezma will perform at Havana on August 31, 2018

¡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
