After-gig hike last week before the sun fell

December 18, 2018

¡Hola, Mi Gente!

I finished that challenging 3-week run of 1 to 2 gigs per day.  And lived to tell.  I even threw in that public gig last Saturday with my rock guitarist buddy from Santana, Carlos Hernandez.  We hit it hard at Havana and threw in a bunch of rocking tunes we’d never done before for a packed house.  What a blast.

In the midst of playing and commuting day and night in the urban jungle, I had one rare late afternoon off.  A brief reprieve.  I unloaded my gear, got into my house, changed into some sweats and drove to Chabot about 4:30 and forced my tired body to hit a trail.  It was hard to get going, but after coming into my first view of the water and hills, I felt so much better!  It was like another world.  Peaceful and grounding.  And cold and dark!  I did the last half of my hike in the night under the slivered moon and beneath the sound of owls hooting in the trees.  Magic.

Now my schedule slows to a manageable level.  The only public show I’m doing this week happens this Friday December 21 when I return to Maria, Maria in Danville for the last time this year, indoors from 6-9pm.

And remember I’m also at Havana after Christmas on Saturday December 29 with the Paraguayan violinist Carlos Reyes, who has played with Arturo Sandoval and Steve Miller.  This is your last chance this year to catch us in public (though we’ve been everywhere in private).  Details for both shows below.  Hard to believe that these are the last public shows of the year!  See you there!

Ciao,

Rolando

Rolando Morales Calendar for July 2018 at Maria, Maria WC, San Carlos Thurs, Havana WC with Janice Maxie-Reid and more

¡Hola, Mi Gente!

What a whirlwind of a week!

After doing my last gigs of June, I flew down to So Cal for a few days to see my mom and visiting brother and family from Michigan.  There I closed some last-minute gig offers.

Last Thursday I flew back in time for The Vine.  The following morning I said goodbye to my friend at her funeral who I wrote you about last week.  It was a beautiful, heart-felt service.

From there, I went to the Mission in San Francisco to play with old and new friends at Cafe La Taza.  It was a wild scene and our quartet blew the walls out of the packed house.  They were watching from the sidewalk through the windows because they couldn’t get in.

Then on Saturday I learned of more life-threatening issues impacting more close family in Southern Cal.  Then that night I kicked it strong with saxophonist Sonya Jason at Havana.  By the end of that day, I was emotionally drained.

Sunday I slept.  I could finally go to the store and then did a challenging, healing hike at Lake Chabot, where I confirmed yet another last-minute gig.

And that one is today, Monday.  I’m off to play with Carlos Reyes and the band for a great private concert in Moraga.

And two more last-minute shows happen on Tuesday July 10 at Maria, Maria in Walnut Creek, and then my surprise return to Piacere in San Carlos on Thursday July 12.  All the details are below in the Calendar.

And remember I’m finally reuniting with the amazing keyboardist-vocalist Janice Maxie-Reid who makes her debut on Saturday July 13 at  Havana in Walnut Creek as I continue my new duet series at that venue.  All details below.

Plenty more coming up in the month including a duet appearance featuring the great violinist Carlos Reyes at The Vine at Bridges on Saturday July 21 from 8-11pm in Danville.  Details below.

Please join me as we continue to celebrate our journey  together.

Ciao,

Rolando
