Sorry I have missed several days of posting here! I will try to post everyday now, at least a little bit. A lot has been happening.
It seems that many performers want to hold benefits for the Tsunami victims. My friend Johnny Conga will put on one with five bands at Seattle' Premier Club in SoDo (South Downtown) on January 20th.
It will feature Johnny's Band Tumba Caliente, and a performance by Jovino Santos Neto, my piano teacher from Brazil. There will be two other groups whose names escape me right now (sorry!), and hopefully some improvisations by some Indian musicians (this has not been confirmed yet).
It will cost $20 for all five groups, time is 7-11pm, January 20th, and all proceeds will go to the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF).

Lastly, Paula Maya is playing at Tost in Fremont on Saturday Night, January 8th.
Paula's my good friend so please go to her show. Her band may be the best kept secret in the Seattle alternative rock scene. She gets consistently great reviews nationwide and plays a lot here. Highly recommended.
