¡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!
