Aqui en el Siete - Thank you

Rachel and I make it a point of living life to the fullest, we try and make every moment an adventure. However, this summer was more about fun than adventure and I must say it has been absolutely incredible and we have got to know the Pacific Baja better than ever before. We've been very knowledgeable about the area, but that is not knowing the area, not until you get to know the people.

This summer we got to know some really wonderful people, and got reacquainted with many others. We need to thank George at the Lighthouse Restaurant in La Mision, thanks for the great times at your place. You know how to party. We need to thank Joanie and Tina, and Kim, Chris, Court, Pris, and John at Mama Bear's Pizza, Jan and Alex at La Bufadora, Judy at La Marina, Jeanne at Paradise Cove. Thank you all so much for giving us the opportunity to perform in your business for your customers. You introduced us to lots of wonderful people.

We are really excited, tomorrow - Sept. 2, 2015 we will start recording our first CD entitled "AQUI EN LA SIETE" (Here at Seven), which is also the title of one of the songs on the CD. Our current drummer Oscar QuiƱones will be recording with us. We are planning for the CD to have 11-12 songs. We'll see how it goes, we will be recording every day this week. All originals and one blues/jazz song from 1923 called Saint James Infirmary.

"Crossroads" Guitar by Strung Junk

Our friend Steve Kinney, the guitar maker from Strung Junk drove all the way to Punta Banda on Friday to watch us perform at La Marina and was cool enough to bring his original "Crossroads" guitar, with the Highway 61 and 49 signs on either side. Very cool sounding guitar with a single, single coil vintage Harmony pickup. Played it an entire set and really enjoyed the feel. Thanks amigo. Looking forward to your building my guitar - MORE PHOTOS - wink emoticon
