House Party with Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen

This past week I had so much fun at a house party put on by Music City Roots featuring Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen.   Not only did Frank give us some great music he also made us dinner, ginger chicken with rice and this yummy relish… it was truly delish!  Turns out Frank is an excellent cook.  Check out the Live Stream video from the party and you can see Frank shop at Whole Foods and then prepare the meal… he shows off his chopping skills!!   Fast forward to about the 23 minute mark.

The band performed in the man cave, complete with stage, at the hosts house.  I love their sound and am now a huge fan!!  Check out a little bit of them live from the party here!

Music and Nature: The Lake with The Vespers

This past Saturday, The Vespers, came to the neighborhood to play a house party.  Maybe I should call it a pool/driveway/beautiful view of the lake party!! It was so much fun and if you have not heard The Vespers you must check them out…. two sisters with voices so beautiful, and two brothers: when they all get together amazing, mesmerizing music is created!!  Thank you Callie, Phoebe, Taylor and Bruno for playing an amazing set of music under challenging circumstances and to Music City Roots who put the show all together.  Fantastic music, beautiful views, yummy food and fabulous friends made this one unforgettable experience!  Glad the MCR people made it safe to New York for the Americana Honors and Awards Nominee Announcement Party, thank you for all your hard work.
