Lake County Music Guide – 6.25.24

It is believed that we all have seven chakras that provide subtle energies that direct our minds, organs, and intellect to work at optimum levels and aid us in keeping our bodies and minds healthy. These are the focal points that, when viewed in a state of meditation, can simultaneously bring together the physical body with the subtle body. The psyche plane interacts with the body plane, and the belief holds that the body and the mind mutually affect each other. In regard to music, the bass instruments are more likely to affect your lower chakras, while more trebly instruments affect your higher chakras – and the five chakras in between all respond to the timbres of certain other instruments.

Listening to a full orchestra can easily stimulate each of your chakras, making the experience both aurally and psychically complete. Get ready for a vast array of tonal timbres from our local musicians during this last week of June… Okay, sorry folks, the mushrooms are just starting to kick in and before I get way too esoteric, I’ll get to the business at hand – the live music schedule for Lake County for the week of 6/25 through 7/1…

On Tuesday, the new official first day of the week, Kelsey Creek Brewing in K’ville always has an abundance of fine hand-crafted beers, ales and seltzers – all with funny names – on tap, and they all flow perfectly as the acoustic guitar music of Buskin’ for Brewskis strums and sings its way into your hearts and bodies – all from 3 to 6:00.

Mike Guarniero

Mike has been playing professionally, both acoustic and electric, for 40+ years. He paid his dues in a robust Sonoma County music scene during the '80s and '90s, then DJ'd for 10 years after moving to Lake County in 1996. After retiring from his job of 26 years, because he recognized a growing local music scene, he decided to devote his time to playing live music again. He's never looked back. Along with his regular band, Dr. Groove, he has filled in on lead guitar for local bands, (Fargo Bros, Blues Farm, C.A.M. Band, Borrowed Time, Time Travelers). He's played acoustic guitar at a some of our local wineries, restaurants, farmers Markets and art galleries. He's also a semi-regular supporting various local Open Mics around Lake County. He writes and records original songs and has recorded original demos for other performers as well. For the last three years, he has posted on Facebook a local music guide called the Lake County Music Guide.
