Save the Date : June 4th at Yoshi's with Big Brother & The Holding Company...

Hey All!
Thanks to everyone who came out for our most recent Livin' Like Kings show (4/18) at The Saloon, the oldest and (some would say) most legendary bar in San Francisco. This was a really fun show, with a packed and most appreciative house full of dancing folks, singing along to our originals! It doesn't get much better than that. Many thanks!!!

Next up on my musical calendar is a show with Big Brother and the Holding Company:
June 4th
Yoshi's in San Francisco

Backstory: I first sang with BBHC about 15 years ago. We did a few fun gigs together, then went our separate ways as I co founded Gregg's Eggs, recorded a CD at The Plant, where I met Arne, found true love and voluntarily retired from singing for a while. As fate and the constant nagging and limitless support of my husband/producer would have it, I'm out there singing again!

Many thanks to you for your support as well, because if no one bothered to share my music and ask me when I will be playing next, I would be singing to myself at home, sharing "save the ______ " petitions on facebook and twitter, while looking for the all too elusive steady yet flexible day job that could benefit from my diverse skill set and insatiable curiosity...

Anyway, I'm really looking forward to playing with these guys again.

This show on June 4th will be reunion/benefit celebration of the KSAN Jive 95 days when radio programmers and DJs actually had a say in what music was played on their stations.
Who knows? Maybe it's a sign of better days to come for the music "industry."
After all, vinyl seems to be making a comeback...
