Coming Soon: R4P “Live Recording”

Friends, it’s been a while since we’ve posted. Life, as you know, is that which happens while you’re making other plans.

Meanwhile: the big World keeps on turning, Music continues to call to us, and we’ve decided to try to build a bridge between those two Large Realities — by making a live record.

Yup: we plan to document our stage show, hi-fi style, and create a lasting record (in the original meaning of the word) of What We Do. After three and a half years and more than a hundred performances, we figured it was time.

Session Number One is THIS WEEK: Sunday, Dec. 7, 7:00 PM, at our very own Red Shack in Cambria CA. Seating will be *very* limited (it’s a tiny place) — please email for directions and to confirm your seat (click on “Contact R4P”). There will be a hat, and you’ll be free to put money in it if you want ($15 suggested donation), but our main purpose here is to rope in a small but mighty audience for the righteous mojo needed to propel the kind of performance we want to capture. Come on out and help us on our way — here at our first show for R4P LIVE — 2015!

Next date: Friday, Jan. 9, 2015, 8:00 PM — Painted Sky Studio, Harmony CA.

Further details on that show — as well as Show #3 (tba) — coming soon after the Holidays. ¬°Gracias! — hope to see you on the Ranch…

“Son of a Gun”

Live at Kulak’s Woodshed, Oct. 4 last year: something to hum under your breath while observing flags flying at half-mast on every UC campus this week:
“Can we lay down our pride and look at what we have done
to turn a child of light into a son of a gun?”
