¡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

¡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!

Rolando Morales May 2019 Calendar

Mother's Day Sunday, May 12th, with Rolando Morales in Danville
Mother’s Day Sunday, May 12th, with Rolando Morales in Danville

¡Feliz Cinco de Mayo, mi Gente!

On Sunday, Mexico and much of the U.S. celebrates Cinco de Mayo, when in 1862 some 4,000 Mexican soldiers obliterated a highly experienced French Army and traitorous Mexican forces of 8,000 in Puebla, just 100 miles east of Mexico City. 

Napoleon Bonaparte’s nephew, Emperor Napoleon III, had embarked upon a very aggressive foreign policy claiming territories in Algeria, Indochina, Lebanon and more with an army that had not been defeated in 50 years, including the Crimean War.  He detested the United States and had designs on ruling over a new empire in neighboring Mexico.  The French feared no one, including the U.S. which was embroiled in its own Civil War.  (The French were also positioning themselves to provide arms to the Confederate Rebels.)   And so with the finest modern equipment and up to date fashion (they were French after all), they invaded Mexico.    

They got more than they bargained for in Puebla.  Instead of being showered with flowers by the conservative clerical town, they were out-maneuvered by General Porfirio Diaz’ men.  The French shot off half their ammunition in less than two hours.  The battles ended with much of the French cavalry killed or wounded, chased on horseback through rain and mud, and with many dodging stampeding cattle and Indians armed only with machetes.

The French tried again over a year later.  This time, the Union forces were rushed to the border after their victory over the Confederates to assist the Mexicanos in expelling the French.  Perhaps this is one reason why thousands of Mexicanos crossed the border after Pearl Harbor to join the U.S. armed forces.  And why so many again flooded American consulates with phone calls during the Persian Gulf War trying to enlist to fight for America.

This little history lesson is something to think about when we witness the thousands of Latin American families risking their lives today to seek help in our country, only to confront oppressive executive orders that separate their family members and penalize them at their most dire time of need.  The ideals of freedom, liberty and upholding the fundamental values of human dignity should be celebrated in this country and shared by us all.  Ajua!

Something tells me not many people will be thinking about this during my big Cinco de Mayo weekend of double-header gigs.  And that’s fine!  We’re out to have fun!  

I haven’t played at Maria, Maria in over 4 months, but I’ll be there at Maria, Maria in Danville on Saturday May 4 from 12-3pm, where I’ll be kicking off the festivities out on the patio for revelers enjoying tequila, margaritas, comida Mexicana and my tailored repertoire.  And I follow that the same night with an appearance at the Walnut Creek Marriott from 6-9pm.  Details below.

Then on Cinco de Mayo, Sunday May 5th, I continue at Maria, Maria in Danville on the patio again from Noon to 3pm.  Lot’s of fun to be had there!  And the same night, I shoot across the pond to the Tavern on 4th in San Rafael, the newly renovated and shiny new watering hole and live music venue for some Latin sounds, drinks and dancing.  I played there last year for this event and they invited me back, so all you North Bay fans, come out and join me!  Details below. 

There’s much more below, including my classic Trio debuting on Friday May 17 at Havana’s in Walnut Creek!  This will be special.  Danilo Paíz on Latin percussion and voice; David Belove on bass; and Yours Truly on guitar, guitar synth and vocals.  This will be the first time we’re playing publicly in the East Bay in many years, so don’t miss it!

There’s plenty more in your new calendar, including a Mother’s Day appearance, so check it out and make your reservations.  

Ciao and see you at the show!
