by Stephen K. Hicks
I called STEPHEN K. HICKS/drums and owner of HOBBY STREET STUDIOS yesterday, who's promoting this gig along with JAMES BUCKINGHAM, and asked him more about the MARTIN SALINAS/LIQUID SOUL COFFEE ROASTERS Music Reunion, going on this Friday night, August 30th, at THE TRIAD THEATER, 104 Yelm Ave., in Yelm, 'cause we hadn't heard anything more about the event, since Steve was asked to be there a few weeks ago. It will be cool to see everyone, this Friday, don't you think?...and, we want to know everything. Everyone's been working hard to make this happen. What's new?
Well, I found out tickets are available at BROWN PAPER TICKETS or call Stephen K. Hicks @ 360/701-9909. Cost $20.00 each. Doors open 6:30, and the music starts 'round 8 pm. My Steve saw some other posters around town,...saying the special guest will be MARTIN SALINAS...well,  .I guess so, Martin's always special, isn't he. So, who else will be there? DOUG SKOOG/keys will be giving KENNY WILLIAMSON/drums a ride to the gig, so they'll be there. ATTENTION: UPDATED 7:30 pm. Got a call from Stephen K. Hicks....poster and info. updated this afternoon. Stephen was unable to reach Doug Skoog by phone this afternoon and confirm, BUT, Confirmed and added NEIL FALLEN/harp/vocals and DAVE BRAY/guitar to line up
Stephen k. Hicks made this beautiful poster on the left and sent it to me. Thanks Steve. It says that DIN WILKIE, MATHEW MILES, and of course, STEPHEN K. HICKS and more will be there too. There will be a special feature: THE HAMBONE BLUES, with Corky and Daryl.
So, there you go folks, everything you need to know.. It sounds like a fun night. I'm gonna be there. Jan

Music Of The 60's...Changing The World, ...One Song At A Time

by GlowJangles cc
O.K  folks...I've been offline for awhile, a few weeks anyway, and did some thinking.. O.K., a lot of thinking.
Recently, Steve and I have had so many oportunities to let's say 'ponder' or' reflect' on some things, that keep coming up in our the music of the 60's, for example. So I thought 'it must be the time to do just that...think and write about it.' So,  'How did the great music of the 60's, change our world,  Anyway?'. Isn't that a good question? Well, thank you...I thought it was a great question too. [Jan].
And then, when I got back online this morning, all primed and  full of my very best 60's Hippie 'we can change the world, yes we can kinda thinking'...What did I find? Another post about just that, the music of the 60's and it's effects on civil rights...O.K., O.K. I get it, Universe. So, without waiting another minute, let's begin. O.K?
First, This is what I found  this morning on  .CBS NEWS. It reminded me of the way it was.
The music of the 60's was MY music...I was a teen age 'Hippie' then  [Jan],and into civil rights, no war, free love and changing the world.and thought I could do anything I dreamed of. I loved the music of that time and it did inspire me to try to do just that...change the world. My Steve, was also into music way back then, and sure looked the part too....didn't he? We were all on a great mission. It was fun and exciting. My first hubby Ernie and Steve's wife Julie were too. This really upset all of our parents who thought the world was just fine.
Steve 20 yrs old with glasses, see link 1971
Here BARTLETT ON BASS is in the band 'Good Blessing'. I got the photo HERE and another link...PACIFIC NORTHWEST BANDS here. Here's another cool photo of BARTLETT from that site, the same band, 'Good Blessing'.. more GOOD BLESSING here.
Well, I think the music of the times just says it best It's a great tool, I'll use, let me post some links below. O.K? Jan
1.] First,  a song representing civil rights of the 60's, by SAM COOKE, 1962.
A CHANGE GONNA COME, from rockwithstone
2.] Second, a song representing our thought on the Viet Nam war at that time, by EDWIN STARR.
WAR, by Edwin Starr, from cctaximan
3.] Next, on love, let's listen to THE ISLEY BROTHERS.
LOVE THE ONE YOUR WITH, from musicvat
4.] O.K., changing the's CROSBY, STILL AND NASH

I found this video of Jerry Miller in MOBY GRAPE on YOUTUBE. The song's called 'Gypsy Wedding', from BCSongsmith. This is what the page says: "Uploaded on Jan 10, 2012
One of the great bands from the San Francisco area during the golden age of hippiedom in the late '60's. Formed in 1966 the lineup included Jerry Miller, Peter Lewis and Spence on guitars, Bob Mosley on bass and Don Stevenson on drums. All band members sang lead and backup and contributed to songwriting. They were proficient at combining country, folk, pop and rock with psychedelic elements. The band took its name from an in-joke ("What's big and purple and lives in the ocean?")."

Viteriito Does It Again....What Can I Say?,...Except, ' Just Beautiful Rob'

from Robert Viterito's site, see links
What a beautiful song. Our friend, Rob Viterito, from Yelm does it again with his video called 'You', a beautiful video made outside Westport, Wa..

Please check Rob and this video out  I found a copy on YOUTUBE at mzmoonsShine [that's Rob's site].  This is what the video page says: " Published on May 10, 2013

I enjoyed thi young beautiful blond twin's electric harp videos today. They call themselves THE HARP TWINS and are "trained  classically and have degrees in harp performance" says ABC NEWS ..O.K...Just who are these beauties?   .it's Camille and Kennerly Kitt, and they're doing 'Paint it Black' from THE ROLLING STONES. and other great rock tunes from other musical artists.. Check them out., they say they had a difficult time finding rock  music for one harp, let alone, had to do arranging themselves. Cool.
This video is from  CamilleandKennerly on YOUTUBE. This is what the page says: " Published on Jan 10, 2013
Buy on iTunes:
Please listen with headphones for more complex sound and fuller bass lines!
Identical Twins Camille&Kennerly play their electric duet harp arrangement of "Paint It Black" (The Rolling Stones).
Music Arranged by Camille and Kennerly
