Rowdy’s Dream Blog #290: I’m playing guitar with an Elvis impersonator.
By Brutus De Cervantes [ Wed Apr 10 2013 1:26 PM ]
I'm in a band, playing on stage with B, an Elvis impersonator. My guitar strap is loose. I take off my white Strat and put it on B as I continue to play the song, a rocker, while he stands there wearing it. As the audience cheers and applauds, I grab B's hair and make him take some bows.

Guitar God Tommy Emmanuel Plays the Kimo Tonight
By Nick Brown [ Mon Jul 27 2009 2:55 PM ]
The last time Tommy was in town Craig Rivera from the City grabbed me to watch his sound check. It was truly astonishing. I’d never heard of him, so Craig (being a guitar whiz himself) wanted me to see what I’d been missing.
Here he is playing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” Check out all the crazy false harmonic chords he does at the beginning.
Tommy Emmanuel plays tonight at the Kimo from 7:30 to 10pm. Tickets are available at the door.
