Have to Brag a Little!

I'm so proud of my very talented son, Carson (he's the tall one on the left). He fronts he own reggae/ska/surf rock band called "Find Your Roots". He just turned 21 in January so he is able to book gigs in the clubs now. His first club performance was last Thursday at Legends Bar and Grill here in Morgan Hill. They sounded fantastic and did a very professional job.

There was quite a turn out for a Thursday night and the audience stayed engaged the entire evening, which you don't see that often in a club environment. It actually seemed more like a concert event! Anyway congrats to Carson (lead vocals & guitar), Josh (vocals & bass) and Ian, their new awesome drummer! You guys rocked the house!!!

The Wine Stroll

This past Saturday my town, Morgan Hill, CA. had what they call a "Wine Stroll". It was an event meant to get people downtown and into the shops. Each shop had a different local winery that would pour a taste of wine. There were 15 local wineries represented. People met at the old Granada theater in the heart of downtown and received a wine glass and a punch card with a map on it. Then they could stroll around from shop to shop wine tasting and shopping!

I decided to take advantage of the event by making a display table for my studio and handing out fliers for my classes, etc... It was a great success. I spoke to many, many people who had no idea that my studio even existed. Hopefully I will get some business out of it! We'll see!
