Posted 8/17/12 - We met a new family at our neighborhood block party in June - Gigi & Joe Hutchinson & their 2 boys, and Joe performed a great set of lively Rock & Rockabilly for us. It was the next day I realized why he looked so familiar – I’ve been seeing his guitar lesson flyers all around town! Joe’s children’s music project THE CONDUCTORS are playing this Sunday at the famous Farmers Market at 3rd & Fairfax, doing “Train-Themed Rock ‘n Roll For Kids & Their Grown-ups.” Sounds like a great family outing to me.

    Gee, Sue…with a headline like that, I would think you would at least include the fact that Neil Diamond is playing at the Honda Center on Aug. 21st. I know it’s not local, but it couldn’t be more apropos!

    Meant tongue in cheek, Sue…You do a great job of helping spread the word on local talent, and I appreciate you letting me publish your calendar.
