I am thrilled to be back at the Kilted Mermaid this Sunday, October 3rd, with the wonderfully talented Todd Jones. You may have caught one of his solo performances over at Havana Nights on the beach or seen him working with other bands around town. He’s a highly skilled guitarist whose leads are a great addition to my covers and originals. We hope you can join us for an evening of fun entertainment. 1/2 off select bottles of wine! You can follow Todd’s work on Facebook at Todd Jones Music
I’ll be playing Pareidolia Brewing Company in Sebastian on Sunday, August 15th, 2021 from 3 to 6pm. I’m thrilled to have some friends sitting in on some songs and Heather will be joining in for the third set. Making music is always more fun with other musically like minded players. We’ll be in the little park with the stage, weather permitting. Come enjoy some tasty brews and entertaining tunes.
The Kilted Mermaid in Vero Beach has a lovely Sunday night series, Wine, Women & Song. Heather McRae and I are thrilled to be returning August 1st with some new songs in our set list and we’ll be ready to entertain. We appreciate all of the wonderful support of everyone who came out and if you missed the last one, be sure to catch this one. Here are some photos from July 11th:
We love what we do and are grateful for the opportunity to entertain. We’ll see you at the Kilted Mermaid August 1st. Keep an eye out for us as we add new show dates to the calendar along the Treasure Coast.
After twenty two years in Sacramento, California, I’ve returned to Florida. The hardest part was saying goodbye to Ally and my fabulous bandmates, Paul, Ron & Zane and my community of friends. I retired from my full time job at the University of California, Davis Medical Center and relocated to be able to make music full time and be closer to family. I’ve been in my new home in Sebastian for nearly a month and am in full swing. Creativity is flowing and magic is in the air. Sebastian is beautiful. Rich with wildlife and lovely locals, a sandy terrain, and on the Indian River, Sebastian is the perfect place for me to decompress and delve into creative goals. I met a talented local finger style guitarist, Paul Goulet, and have started working on a couple of projects with him. One is a three part harmony group that focuses on the works of the Wailin’ Jenny’s, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and Brandi Carlisle (to name a few) and the other is a Joni Mitchell tribute. Learning her music is a wonderful way to explore and expand the full potential of my vocal and guitar abilities. The melodies and open guitar tunings open up a new world of tonality and I’m making fast progress now that I have more time to concentrate on music. I’m so grateful that life lined up in such a way that I was able to take the leap and grab this opportunity.
To celebrate my move, I spent a day indulging in one of my favorite guilty pleasures, writing a cheesy pop song. Just call me DJ Swiss Cheddar! You might recall Dave Matthew’s song, Crash Into Me, which was released in 1996. I was struck by how the music, lyrics and melody worked so well in that piece and wanted to write something similar but didn’t know how I could pull that off successfully. That’s a long time for an idea to percolate and the result is above.
Keep an eye out for me in the Treasure Coast area and be well! ~ Kally
