ROCKIN' MUSICIANS
Written By: Brenda Golden
ROCKIN' MUSICIANS Hi, friends.  Well, color me excited!  I’m going on a road trip to meet my brand new GREAT grandson who has the coolest name: Jett James.  So happy for proud young parents Haley & Mason who have been blessed with this sweet little guy.  It’s been a few years since I ventured out of the area and I’ve never been to the mountains of Pennsylvania; no further than Doe Mountain, that is, when we use to ski.  So, yeah, I’m excited.Meanwhile, on the music scene last week, I had a great time hearing a few of my favorite bands starting with Cecilia’s Fall last Saturday at Harborside.  Lead guitarist Gavin Hades was on the road with his pal’s Gavin Evick Band; so they enlisted Nalen from The Mercury Agenda to fill in for him.  He, of course, did a wonderful job, often dueling guitars with band leader Jeremy.  Likewise, bass man Jeff (Full Circle & Chest Pains) was unable to make it, so Eddie filled in on bass.  John, as always, was terrific on the drums and Tess was belting out the tunes ...

THE MULTI-TALENTED DUNEHOUNDS

THE MULTI-TALENTED DUNEHOUNDS Hi, all.  Are you enjoying this wonderful sunshine and warm temperatures?  I know I am.  And I’m really enjoying all the fantastic music being offered all over town; far too many for me to cover them all, that’s for sure.  This week I’d like to talk to you about one of my favorite bands - The Dunehounds.  I had the pleasure of hearing them last Saturday at Harborside in West O.  This talented foursome is comprised of players who are each and every one capable of headlining their own solo shows.  Of course, that means each one sings and plays guitar on their own; but I’m getting ahead of myself.  Let me introduce you to the band.  On lead guitar is Sean Loomis who is one busy guy.  You’ll spot him in several other very successful bands: Full Circle, String Buzzards, sometimes Loomatix, sometimes as a duo with such players as AJ Fox, with Darin Engh and whoever joins in on the last Sunday of the month for the Bluegrass Pickup Pickin’ Party at Harborside; and sometimes solo.  In fact, you...

ROCKIN' IN OC
Written By: Brenda Golden
ROCKIN' IN OC Hi, all.  It’s been rather an eventful week in my world.  I became a great grandmother, two grandsons graduated from SDHS, both daughters had birthdays and my house needed electrical work.  That was scary; lost power in my office so I couldn’t ‘talk’ to you until now.  But now all is well and as promised at the end of last week’s column, I’m going back to talk about two bands who really knocked my socks off; well, if I wore any that is.A week ago Wednesday I visited one of my favorite places on the planet to hear one of my favorite bands - Lime Green.  If you know me, you know I’m talking about Coconuts Beach Bar & Grill (behind the Castle in the Sand for new folks).  Singer Angeline Leech is one of the finest vocalists you’ll ever hear; and that’s saying something because I can think of at least ten female singers in our area who are oh-so good.  We are blessed indeed.  Angeline (who plays rhythm guitar) is accompanied by Terry Wilson on guitar, John Murrell on bass and Billy Heis...
