Lake County Music Guide – 4.9.24

So yesterday, while half the country was traveling halfway across the nation in search of the perfect view of the Solar Eclipse, I was busy putting together this week’s live music schedule, not the slightest bit worried I was missing some spectacular once-in-a-lifetime event. Guess that makes me one of the boys – I mean, when you think about it, it only lasts for about 2 to 5 minutes. Meh, I’ve had sex that lasted longer than that. Er… here’s the live music guide for the week of 4/9 through 4/15…

Lake County Music Guide – 4.2.24

While digging up the info for this week’s live music schedule I ran across something I found to be very interesting. Jake Peavy, a Cy Young-winning badass pitcher who ended his career with the San Francisco Giants after the 2016 season, including playing in the 2014 World Championship Series, is now a touring musician. He, along with longtime Giants 3rd base coach Tim Flannery, plus a star-studded cast of other quality musicians will be playing a concert at the Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley, a benefit for the “Sweet Relief Musician’s Fund”, an organization that helps career musicians and other music industry workers “who are struggling to make ends meet while facing physical or mental health issues, disability or age-related problems”.

Lake County Music Guide – 3.27.24

Like the cliché says, “April showers bring May flowers” – and it’s only the last week of March! Sadly, this week has the promise of a few outdoor musical events, but the forecast says it’s gonna rain. I just filled 3 green containers in the last three weeks with weeds, and I don’t want to encourage them to grow back, so let’s hope it’s wrong. Here’s the live music schedule for the week of 3/26 through 4/1…

Lake County Music Guide – 3.19.24

Hoowee! Loving this weather! Spent most of yesterday and today pulling weeds, turning the soil and getting red in the face. I’d like it to be this way forever – I know we can use more rain, but let it rain from midnight to 4 AM. Who’s with me?!? Whew, glad I got that off my chest. Anyway, here’s the live music guide for the week of 3/19 through 3/25…

Lake County Music Guide – 10.31.23

I just read how there are quite a few slang words many of us Boomers and Millennials still use that have become so outdated it’s embarrassing to some to just hear them used. Words like; groovy, rad, fo shizzle, tubular, cowabunga, righteous, bitchin, bogus, cool beans, word and psyche. Bummer, Dude, that eliminates most of my vocabulary… Slang is for the most part a regional expression and much of it is embedded in the lexicon associated with certain eras. Well, maybe I’m just getting senile, but I stand by the slang words I grew up with. Who’s with me?!?… Um…, okay, here’s the live music guide for the week of 10/31 through 11/6…

Lake County Music Guide – 12.20.22

The good news: it’s gonna be a pretty busy week in terms of holidays and observances, where Hannukkah started two days ago on Sunday, Winter Solstice happens on Wednesday, Christmas is on Sunday and the doubleheader of Kwanzaa and Boxing Day occurs on Monday. The bad news: because Christmas eve is on Saturday and Christmas Day is on Sunday, many places will be closed for these observances. But despite those days being sans live music, there’s at least one joint each day from Tuesday through Saturday to go out and get your live music fix. WOOHOO!!! Here’s the schedule, plus an updated NYE rundown for the week of 12/20 through 12/26.

Lake County Music Guide – 12.13.22

“Eenie weenie chili beanie, the spirits are about to speak!” Anybody out there remember where this famous quote came from? Here’s a hint… Boris Badenov referred to this dynamic duo as “Moose ‘n’ Squirrel.” Okay, times up! It’s a line from the Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle, which aired from 1959 through 1964. Like most kids, I would watch cartoons, but this was pretty much the only one I really liked because it was silly in a Three Stooges sort of way – full of puns, sarcasm, self-referential dialog, and other socially unacceptable wordplays, especially so for impressionable children like I was. I would watch the show with friends, laughing hysterically – but they didn’t really get it. I could relate to the patience and empathy of Rocket J Squirrel, marveled at the perseverance of Bullwinkle J Moose, who never stopped trying despite his constant failures, and sneered at the comic depiction of Boris Badenov, Natasha Fatale, and Fearless Leader. This, to me, was cartooning at its comic best. Okay, maybe I’m entering into my second childhood, but I hope you don’t mind me including references to the show throughout this music schedule. Here’s the live music guide for the week of 12/13 through 12/19…

Lake County’s Musical Ambassador: Meet Mike Guarniero

While you may not know musician Mike Guarniero personally, odds are you’ve seen him play. For years he has been involved in the Lake County music scene and played with over twenty different bands. You might have heard him play with his band, Dr. Groove, which regularly has performed in the county. Or you might have caught his Lake County Music Guide, which posts on Facebook and in The Bloom (when there is live music).
Sitting in the courtyard of Pogo’s Pizza in Kelseyville earlier this week with Mike felt as if we were seated with a long-time friend we haven’t seen in a while. You might feel the same if you are a music lover in Lake County; Mike’s friendly personality makes conversation easy.
