¡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!
