Friday Nights on Main Street – Ritmojito with Special Guest – Live at Servino Ristorante

by on Jul.13, 2010, under Entertainment in Tiburon, Festival, Music

Summer is here, and Friday Nights are alive again on Main Street in Tiburon. Here’s a video of Mas Que Nada (one of my favorite all time songs) performed by Ritmojito, a special guest joins Sandra Aran of Ritmojito towards the end. Be sure to check out the live music schedule at Servino Ristorante.

This is one of my favorite bands, and they’re perfect for a place like Servino’s Ristorante. They have a really nice playlist which is jazzy and romantic for dinner, and transitions gradually through the evening to latin/ska/salsa that will get you on your feet as you party into the night.

Photos from the Vino Modo Save Angel Island Wine Festival can also be download for free on Flickr Or you can view and share these photos on Facebook.

50+ Wineries, food sampling from restaurants vendors, Live Music from The Soulshine Blues Band, Angel Island shore with breathtaking views of Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco skyline, Tiburon, Sausalito and Belvedere Island.

For more information see:
Vino Moda Save Angel Island Wine Festival 2010.

This turned out to be a wonderful wine festival. Despite the very long line early on, things seemed to work out very well. Most people showed up before the event started, but once they got under way with letting people in, the line moved swiftly.

There was plenty of wine through the day. Only a couple of vendors seemed to run out. Note to vendors: don’t ever let this happen.

The weather was amazing again this weekend. Thanks for letting it rain during the week between opening day and the wine festival!

Also, the oyster were really good. They’re the same oysters they serve at the cantina at Ayala Cove.

I’m not sure how much money was raised for the island, but I hope it was a lot. The island is definitely worth it!

Sausalito Art Festival 2009

by on Sep.15, 2009, under Art, Festival, Music, Wine

The Sausalito Art Festival was a total blast. My favorite moment was watching The English Beat perform. Dave Wakeling and the rest of the band can really put on a show. Somehow they were able to manage a mashup of their hit Sooner or Later along with Tom Petty‘s Free Falling and Pearl Jam‘s Better Man. Tainted Love was also a lot of fun for the 80s fans, as was Night Ranger, while Servino‘s regular Michael LaMacchia performed on the artist stage.

Monday was the Heroes of Woodstock 40th Anniversary Tribute with Tom Constanten, Quicksilver Messenger Service, Big Brother and the Holding Company, Canned Heat, and Jefferson Starship.

I was a little disappointed with the food, although the crab cakes were really good, and so was the wine and champagne.

And of course the art was definitely worth spending a day or two to go through and see it all.

As for me, I was too busy enjoying the work of others, so continuing in that spirit, please enjoy the above slideshow of photos submitted to Flickr from various attending photographers.

See you all at the Sausalito Art Festival 2010!

Red Union Hair Salon Party with Artist Lorraine Lawson

by on Jul.13, 2009, under Art, Food, Music, Party, Wine

Red Union hair salon is in San Francisco, not Tiburon, but it’s definitely the best hair salon in the greater San Francisco Bay Area, including Tiburon, Belvedere and all of Marin County. From Tiburon, it’s just a quick trip over the Golden Gate and then there’s easy parking off of Union Street. Once a quarter, the owner, Erika Redding does a salon party with free beer, wine, music, and appetizers to show off the new artist’s opening. This is really a wonderful way to start the evening in the city or to come back to Tiburon and end up at Sam’s. However, I’d highly recommend going there first for the hair services!

The next party is Saturday, July 18, 2009, from 7pm to 9pm!

Paula Bradman, Jazz Vocalist at Servino’s Restaurant in Tiburon

Jazz Vocalist Paula Bradman performing at Servino's Restaurant in Tiburon, CaliforniaPaula Bradman, Jazz Vocalist

Sorry, but this post only has 1 picture, taken from my iPhone, and doesn’t come close to doing the lovely Paula Bradman justice. Paula Bradman has more pictures on her website. I hope to get more pictures soon when she performs at Servino’s Ristorante in Tiburon this Saturday, April 4 – 7:30pm to 10:30pm.

Paula Bradman is on of my favorite regular Jazz performers in San Francisco. It’s always a wonderful delight to find that she’s playing at a restaurant where you can make an evening of good food, drink and entertainment.

My first experience with Paula Bradman was about a year ago in front of Servino’s restaurant during the Friday Night Tiburon Street Fair. The street fair in Tiburon, always has a lot going on…and lots of kids running around. It’s fun, but a bit distracting if you’re looking to enjoy the jazz music.

Fortunately, Paula Bradman performs regularly indoors, where I’ve seen her a few times, and really enjoyed her performance.

After her last performance, she handed me a demo CD of her jazz music for review. She did so with the caveat that the first song on the CD was something she didn’t like and wanted to delete (a cover of the Rolling Stones, “Satisfaction”).

I’ve heard her perform Satisfaction live and really like it. However, when Paula Bradman performs, she works the crowd, and provides a specific mood to fit the environment throughout the evening. Being in synch and even better, driving the mood, to me, is key to a jazz performance, and Paula Bradman consistently executes this brilliantly. My guess, is that Paula doesn’t feel that this recording of Satisfaction correctly sets up what she wants the rest of the CD to be. I can’t disagree with this, but would say that it would be a shame to delete this song as opposed to providing it as an extra or bonus track at the end.

The rest of the jazz CD is an absolute delight, as expected by anyone who has seen Paula Bradman live. It lacks the visual feast that is the beauty of Paula performing, and of course the intimacy and interaction with the audience, but makes up for that with the benefit you get from being able to listen and relax to the familiar tracks you can re-listen to over and over…which I find perfect for sailing on San Francisco Bay or hanging on the boat at Angel Island.

Paula Bradman is backed on her CD by a team of talented musicians consisting of Michael Smolens (piano and electric piano), Fred Randolph (acoustic and electric basses), Eric Crystal (tenor, alto, and soprano saxes), and Alan Hall (drums).

It may not be as extensive as the Catalina Jazz Festival in Avalon, but a Paula Bradman performance in Tiburon is a much more special evening not to be missed.
