Corralitos Concert 2010 - Band Wanted!

This was listed on Craig's List yesterday so it may still be available. This also just looks like a great show to check out. We need a band for Sunday, May 30, 2010, to play a short 90 minute set, from 10am to 11:30am. Prefer bluegrass, jazz, swing, acoustic, blues, etc..... Will be opening act for Corralitos Concert 2010 at the Corralitos Grange Hall, with the Western Skylarks, Steve's Jazz Kitchen, and the Shawn Maderios Group. There is a stage inside with lots of room, ok electricity, no PA system. Grange seats 300 max but will be set up for less. Pays $50 a head, cash monies, no roadies, groupies, agents, included, just band players.

Accordion players have to pay us $50. You also get a free lunch while there from Cafe Ella (no cat food sandwiches here) and a complimentary beverage from either the Santa Cruz Mountain Brewery, or the Alfaro Family Vineyards and Winery.

This is a free concert open to the public, and a non-profit fund raiser for the Corralitos Cultural Center artists. The annual Corralitos Padres Pancake Breakfast, also takes place in the morning at the Corralitos Community Center nearby, with thousands of local residents in attendance. There is also an all day Art Exhibit next door, which will draw additional visitors through out the day. See our ad in this week's Good Times. Reply with a brief description, type of music, number of band members, how long playing, YouTube link if any, and contact information. Thanks Reply to: comm-7xkst-1762954823@craigslist.org

Good People + Good Music + Good Beer = Grand Opening

A big thank you to everyone who came out for our grand opening celebration this weekend. The music of the Western Skylarks was the perfect complement to the beer provided by Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing. We felt the love.
