Dear Friends,


Thanks to eveyone for your support this week while I underwent shoulder surgery this Wednesday. No guitar playing for me for a bit, but I will definitely be there for the following shows: 


Jan 11 - Friday  - Kirby's Steak House with Yelba's Trio from 7:30 - 11:30 p.m.

Jan 12 - Saturday - Caffe Di Fiori with Yelba's Trio from 6 - 9 p.m. Come help celebrate Lucy's birthday! 

Jan 13 - Sunday -  Bistro Alex Sunday Brunch with Yelba's Trio featuring Richard Saldivar on keys, 11 - 2 p.m.

Jan 18 - Friday - Crescent Moon Wine Bar featuring Billy Pope on vocals and guitar, reserve now! 


The show scheduled for January 19th at my favorite place on Galveston Island - Crow's Cantina - has been rescheduled to February 16th, many thanks to Diane! Those of you who regularly attend my Crow's Cantina shows understand that this one might be a bit much to handle for my healing shoulder - even if I don't climb on the bar to sing and dance!
