december 22

ohmigosh, has it been THAT long since i have written here? (i know, shut up, dont tell me!!!!!!!!!) finally have some pics to post for you..... firstly from brennans where we did our last brennans of 2003 gig at the cowspace party, where our pal jeff sang with us on "heavens gate" and sounded just amazing!!!!

then we had a special surprise singer join us for a few tunes, one of my producers, rosemarie "mumsy" zuro!!! (applause!) (woo hoo!)

thursday night i had a chance to play solo at western beat east at the coffee gallery backstage and it was a shame that there wasnt a good turnout because the music was awesome!! brett perkins tried out 4 new songs which were all amazing, and then stuck around til he had to go and pick up his girlfriend at the airport!

victor gutierrez introduced tee-m, who was there with his trusty upright bassist, al, and played his eastern-meets-the-beatles-inspired songs!!!!!

more of tee-m!

then my friend lauren adams took the stage and played songs from her latest cd, "thirsty"...

phil van tee and mark romano also performed that night, and were both great! here is our fearless leader, victor!

....just another beautiful california sunset......
