We are so lucky to get to play at some of the most beautiful places in the world. This is one of them. Fitzpatrick Winery is an enormous log building with a huge wrap around deck. There is a brick oven in the corner of the deck and the owner of the winery, Brian Fitzpatrick makes mouth watering pizza. The setting is HIGH up on a hill with a view that seems to go on forever.
The people make a reservation for the evening and everyone comes for pizza and wine and stays for music. They sell out the place every Friday in the summer.
We meet the nicest people at Fitzpatrick. This couple asked us to sing happy birthday to her mom. In fact, there were several birthdays and we did the Beatles Birthday song for all of them.
See what I mean about the view?
Dick and Jeannie celebrated their 50th anniversary and we did a special song for them. It was a beautiful day!
Things get a little crazy!!
Here is a sweet couple with a tiny little baby, proving that you are never too young for rock n roll!
These folks were up from the Bay Area.
They always offer pizza to the band. It's soooooo good. I can not say enough about the pizza!
And....it was Jerry's birthday!! I ask you...is there any better way to spend your birthday? It just made the night all the more special!!
Two "Mikes", Michael our guitar player and Steve's brother Mike, who was visiting from Ridgecrest.
This is a night when I looked around and just soaked in the moment. It doesn't get any better than this!
Another Birthday girl, Ginny and Dave, Debbie, Rick, Jim and Kelley ALL celebrated birthdays with us! And Drummer Jerry of course!
Brian told us he would invite us back again for next summer. I'm already looking forward to it!
