Every time we play it's a special event in our lives, and we hope in the lives of others too. So this is a bit of memory lane.
2019/02/13: Canyon Manor Bread and Roses Presents Canyon Manor is a locked mental-health facility. Driving there we hit rain of blinding and biblical proportions, and we got pulled over by the police because Dan drove over a curb (sobriety check). When we started playing we were soggy from running with equipment through the deluge, and Linda temporarily lost her purse. But they put our name on the whiteboard! We played for about twenty-five people on folding chairs in a small room with perfect acoustics. One staff person said she saw smiles from people who don't generally smile. B&R gigs are the best.
2019/01/26: Caffe Chiave Caffe Chiave Italian Caffe First time there! They treated us nice, and friends clapped. Patty provided useful Italian phrases; she might persist.
2018/12/15: Point Reyes Christmas Bird Count! Point Reyes Christmas Bird Count This is part of the century-old Audubon count. We played the dinner afterward. But Patty was there at 6:30 a.m. in the marshes. Dan and Linda were not. It was a bit silly to have music, since those ornithologists were loudly giddy with their finds. But big fun.
