This week: Jose Gonzales plays the WHOLE Charlie Brown Christmas suite, Composer Samantha Boshnack premiers original works, The Royal Room puts on a two-night First Anniversary blowout, ending with Eckaman's new Super Makako Band (I have heard tracks from the upcoming CD - VERY nice!), the Musicquarium throws a working musician's 'office party' (hmm, about that office space...), and much more, plus the regular sessions by Billy Brandt, Mambo Cadillac, Mac's Triangle pub, Paratii, and Darrell's. The Holidaze continue on...
