February 26 was a very special anniversary for Dan Grigor and me, and we decided to start the day in a very special way: clinking wine glasses over Sunday brunch at the Meritage, overlooking the vines of Callaway’s Vineyard and Winery. What an exquisite choice that turned out to be!

The Pour House in Paso Robles Puts the Special in Specialty Beer Bar

In November each year, Dan Grigor gravitates to the Paso Robles area to share some “quality time” with a group of dear friends, laughing and drinking their way through Wine Country in a tour bus…equipped with a stripper pole. Last year, we launched a new tradition – and helped finance the adventure – by arriving a little early to make new friends and let his 12-string ring in some of the lovely venues in the area.

Though it may not be the fanciest location we played, at our first stop at The Pour House, just off the 101, we found a “Tap Room and Beer Shoppe” where the vibe is absolutely as good as it gets.

The Slow Moving Lions of the Vegetable World and I

By Dan Grigor

A severely under-featured feature of our site is “Awesome Nobodies.” I would like to take this opportunity to revive it with the wonderful surprise that is the Slow Moving Lions of the Vegetable World. What a treat. Picture this: 4-part harmony, a cello, a guitar, a mandolin and a saw. Yup, you read the right, a saw. What a lovely sound, the cello and the saw, but there are so many wonderful combinations: the pretty voice of Liz Reid and the mandolin, two male voices and Liz, the guitar and the cello, the saw and the mandolin… Ahhh I’m losing track. It’s awesome. Liz sings, plays the guitar and is the principle songwriter; Kevin Skalba has been playing the cello since he was a child; Aaron Burke plays the saw with a subtle, tasty flair; Jacob Stahl is a mandolin maniac! They opened for me at a show recently at Kimo’s in San Francisco and I was so pleased they agreed to play. Delightful they are!

Guitar Nation Festival 2010, to be held in London May 8 and 9, is expected to be a two-day musical delight of performances, demonstrations, seminars and debates for guitarists and music industry professionals.

A broad variety of Master classes will be offered to appeal to those serious about working in Music.

Steve Vai will be making his only professional visit to the UK of 2010 to help attendees interested in “Making it in the Music Industry.”
