Happy New Year to all our fans! Thank you all for your support in 2017 – we released our first album, All the Fish are Hoppin’ last year – it was a huge success! This year we are working on a new album and have more great gigs for everyone to attend. The first is in Santa Cruz at Lulu Carpenter’s on January 13th – but the one you need to prepare in advance for is in Monterey at the historic Hotel del Monte, on the campus of the Naval Postgraduate School.
The Naval Postgraduate School is continuing their Sunday Brunch on the last Sunday of the month, and we will be there, playing great music to accompany the excellent food and atmosphere! We had the honor of performing in 2017 and for a special New Year’s Eve 1940s Gala and they have asked us back for 2018!.
Please join us the last Sunday in January and February in the Barbara McNitt Ballroom (or on the balcony – gorgeous view!) for exquisite fare and our signature swinging Blue Jazz music. Get there early and you can enjoy a Bloody Mary at the cool Trident Room – the basement bar with a nautical theme – that opens at 10am. Be sure to leave time for exploring the lobby and the museum room – tons of interesting history there!
You’ll want to stroll the beautiful grounds, with a desert garden, pool, and even a friendly squirrel or two. Hope to see some of our fans in the audience on the last Sunday of January or February – please make your reservations by 01/12 or 02/09. Brunch is $30 per person (includes champagne, OJ, coffee/tea and an expansive menu), $15 for kids, under 4yrs free. Reservations must be made 3 Fridays in advance by phone or email.
Check out this cool photo I found of when the Hotel del Monte was in it’s heyday and the beginning (and end!) of the legendary 17 Mile Drive. Salvador Dali hosted an avant garde party there – look it up, you’ll be amazed. See you there!You’ll need to provide the following via phone or email: full names, birth dates and DL /ID numbers to 831-656-1049 or fill out THIS FORM and email to: firstname.lastname@example.org by January 12 and/or February 9, 2018.
