Brave Combo

We have lots of Brave Combo's CDs
One of my all-time favorite bands is Brave Combo. I've been following them for over 15 years. They're from Denton, Texas. Their website describes the band as a "groundbreaking world music act, a hot jazz quintet, a rollicking rock'n'roll bar band, a Tex-Mex conjunto, a sizzling blues band, a saucy cocktail combo, a deadly serious novelty act, a Latin orchestra, and one of America's dance bands par excellence."

They only travel to California once a year, usually because of the Cotati Accordion Festival in Northern California. They try to book a few gigs up and down the Coast in order to make the trip worthwhile and to appease all of their California fans. We saw them last year at McCabe's Guitar Shop in Santa Monica. This was a good show, but the McCabe's concert venue does not allow for dancing. You just have to get up and move when you hear this band.
Brave Combo at Safari Sam's
Last night we drove to East Hollywood, Safari Sam's on Sunset near Normandie to hear Brave Combo. Sidenote: Safari Sam's, a former strip club, is located across the huge parking lot from one of the largest 99-Cent Only Stores in the City. One-stop shopping at it's finest!They were great!!! We had a good time. I'm exhausted today!!!
Bandleader, Carl Finch

Bandmember, Jeffrey Barnes
HOWEVER, I'm not too exhausted to attend the WeHo SnB Back to the 70's party at the Original Farmers Market tonight, 7-9! See you there, all you groovy knitsters!

Hi Ginny!

Oooo...Larry and I got home at 12:30. For us, that's late on a Wednesday. Also, hangin' in a very loud rock 'n roll club, screaming to be heard really wears one out, not to mention the polka-ing!
