What happened to our winter?? I am sure I am not the only one getting an early start this year on those outdoor projects. This last Saturday I was involved in a community project at the Firehouse and after several hours I was still able to head out to San Gregorio General Store and catch Bundy Browne and band. It’s hard to beat a weekend trip down the road toward the coast with the beautiful green hills and spectacular weather. Bundy and band mates Rick, Casey, and Dennis with Gary sitting in on Sax got started at 2pm. I wouldn’t call it a full house but between fans that showed up and the non-stop flow of travelers going in and out ensured an appreciative audience. I sat next to a couple that hadn’t been there before and overheard the woman saying to her husband “ What a find this place is!” I have to agree. This version of Bundy’s band is known as the Expresso Rhythm Section and is the band featured in Bundy’s CD release of a couple of years ago. Quite possibly the best CD project ever released from our local area. The artwork was done by local Bill Bishop and recording was done locally at Charlie Natzke’s studio (hey I spelled your name right Charlie!). I have to admit though the reason I am featuring a picture of Their CD is because I forgot to take my camera to the gig. Oops!! Bundy is a masterful guitarist and mandolin player and the CD features a lot of his mandolin playing. Bundy has a silky, sultry voice and together with a first class band it is always worth catching him at one of his shows. Rick and Dennis add their harmonies to Bundy’s vocals and together they produce a tight vocal package. Bundy plays in a couple of bands and can be seen locally and around the bay area as he gigs a lot. If you are interested in getting a copy of the CD, you can usually find a few copies at the La Honda Market or San Gregorio Store. If you want to know more about local musicians you can check the archives of The Face of Local Music at lahonda.com. Thanks to Bundy and band and George at the store for another great afternoon at the Store.
