One More this month!

Hi folks,
We don’t usually send music news twice in one month, but we’ve been asked to play at an event in Fairfax and just wanted to invite any of you who might be in Marin this coming Sunday morning, September 28th.

Come Celebrate Public Art!
The Peace Center of Marin is having a dedication of the Seeds of Peace Mural at the Good Earth, 1966 Sir Francis Drake Blvd. in Fairfax.
This is a beautiful mural that the Peace Center has finally completed.
We’ll be playing music with our friends Christopher Smith and Duncan Draper from around 9:30am.
The dedication starts at 10:30 and we’ll be playing before and after that on and off until noon or so. We hope to see some of you there!

We also have several dates coming up in October which we’ll post on the 1st.

Best, Lindalou and Michael

Music news

Hello out there,
It’s hard to believe it’s September already! Our summer has been like a roller coaster ride of changes and challenges… some good, some bad, some extremely sad, and we just hope all of you who receive this are well and happy and enjoying life!

I know all our lives are full and this is very short notice, but we just got a call asking us to play at the Calistoga Farmer’s Market tomorrow morning. They had a cancellation and called us, even though we’re already scheduled to play there next weekend.

So just in case you’re near by… (We don’t know about you, but music is what gets us through!)
Here are the upcoming dates:

Saturday, September 6th, 9am to noon
Calistoga Farmer’s Market
Downtown Calistoga on Washington Street

Also on Saturday, Sept 6th, at 8pm.
We’ll play a few songs at the Ketchup Festival.
This is a take-off on the annual Napa Valley Mustard Festival.
It’s actually a benefit for the annual Calistoga Relay for Life, raising money for the American Cancer Society. It’s sort of an open mic but you sign up in advance and pay to perform! Our friend Nick Triglia has organized a great line up and raised extra money several years in a row for his Relay team. This takes place at the Calistoga Roastery on Lincoln Avenue from 5pm to 10pm.  It’s great fun.

On Saturday, Sept. 13th, 9am to noon again
Calistoga Farmer’s Market
Our extremely talented friend Duncan Draper has been showing up and playing Standup Bass (and occasionally accordion…)  with our (also lovely and talented) friends Dan Brunetti on guitar and David Chapman on drums. We had a great response last month when we all played together at the Farmer’s Market. We called our band “Lindalou and Michael and the 3 D’s.”

Later that same day– Sept 13th
Calistoga High School on Lake Street
We’ll play the Relay For Life event which will have a wide variety of music throughout the day and into the evening. We’ll be there with The 3 D’s entertaining folks as they walk the track, sharing the task with their teammates for 24 hours, to raise awareness and funds for cancer research.

Hope to see you soon!

Lindalou and Michael
