A great local band called Five Miles High covers Tom Petty’s “American Girl.”
Okay, so when is there ever a dry eye in the house when a great singer covers “Danny Boy?” And in a church…. And when it’s your father who has passed… This is bittersweet.

This is a short blast from the past involving my mom and dad and the family dog, Jake.
Just a sweet family moment in the late 1970s, St. Clair Shores, Michigan.

Lonnie Ramirez performs “Over the Rainbow.” This is such a heartfelt rendition because it is a tribute to his brother, Emilio (a triplet) who passed away, way too young.

The Farmer’s Market is always the place to be on Sunday mornings in San Diego. One extra, added incentive is the appearance of Shawn Rohlf and the 7th Day Buskers…
September 8th, 2011, a day of infamy in San Diego – the night the lights went out. Jefferson Starship was scheduled to play in front of a large audience to gather near the new cruise ship terminal, and mark the ten-year anniversary of 9/11. Many people didn’t show up thinking that the concert would be scheduled. Well, it wasn’t. They played to a small, intimate audience. Truly stellar! I edited this with footage from the Tour De Fat, a hilarious group of bicycle vaudeville performers who tour the country and arrive in San Diego every summer. Plus there’s beer (New Belgium Brewing Company provides the brews.)
Styx performed at the Valley View Casino north of San Diego a few years ago. We were sitting right in the front row, center. That’s as awesome as it gets. This is “Grand Illusion.”
5 Miles High – one of our favorite San Diego bands -covers ZZ Top’s Tush, featuring Kirk Cummings. A Pocket Production by Patty Mooney.
