¡Happy Voting Day, Mi Gente!
I’m on my way out to do the deed. And if you haven’t already, you should be out there at the polls, too. The soul of the country will be revealed. It’s going to be an interesting night…
On the music front there’s only one public show happening this week, but it’s a good one. This Saturday November 10 at Havana in Walnut Creek, about 8:30-11pm, I’m back with my dear friend Estaire Godinez on Latin percussion and voice. She’s played with George Benson and Prince. The last time out, we really stretched into new places. It was a blast testing out new muscles and surprising the crowd. We’ll see where we go this time. We even surprise ourselves! Details below.
Then in addition to my return next week to Pairings Cellars in Pleasanton on Friday November 16, I’ll also return to Havana on Saturday November 24 when I pair up with the Paraguayan violinist Carlos Reyes, who has played with Arturo Sandoval and Steve Miller. Anyone who’s seen him knows he’s a force to be reckoned with. Details for all shows below.
See you on the other side!
