Houston Jones November 2010 Newsletter - by Henry Salvia, keyboards, accordion

Hola, fun-seekers!


Henry Salvia from Houston Jones at your service, with an update on HoJo doings. We've been busy little bees, what with lurching around the state and rinsing out our rally thongs (Giants!, f*** yeah!). Thanks to all who attended the Glenn Houston Birthday Revue at Rancho Nicasio, and the many friends who came out on our SoCal swing and the amazing show at the FAR-West conference in Santa Clara. A rare treat to cram the stage with us, Stevie Coyle, Bev Barnett, Caren Armstrong, and Blame Sally all at once! And we fit! And man, what a sound. Big fun was had by all.

Couple of nifty things coming up. The Mamma Llamma Coffehouse (the 1-m Moma, she's a museum, the 2-m Momma, she's a scream) in cosmopolitan Weaverville this Saturday November 6th, Armando's in Martinez, the other city by the other Bay, Friday November 19th.

Other special events coming up include an Anniversary Celebration at the Sierra Nevada Brewery in Chico, city of light, on Monday November 15th. This show includes us, Roy Rogers (no Trigger, sorry) and the inimitable Joe Craven. Tickets are going fast, so check out http://www.sierranevada.com/sierra30.html.

And our favorite general store with full bar, the San Gregorio General Store on Sunday November 21st, with special guests the Magic City Chamber of Commerce, featuring our own Chris Kee and Peter Tucker. This is an early show, with Magic City starting at 11 am, HoJo at 2 pm. Chris and the amazing Jane Selkye also play each Tuesday in November at the Bazaar Cafe in dowdy old San Francisco. If you've never heard Jane, you really owe it to yourself to see them. This is as good as singing/songwriting gets.

Thanks for listening, and remember: fear the beard, but you really want to fear Peter Tucker's rally thong...
