THE BREW MAMA

THE BREW MAMA

It has been almost a year and things are going strong and the laugh have gotten stronger for the Brew HA HA at the Brewhouse. Over the last year 15 events have been produced and the Brewhouse has become the home of Comedy in Modesto. Every Comedian nominated for a Modesto Area Music Award this year has performed at a Brew HA HA which is nominated for Small Event/Series along with the Brewhouse for Venue. It goes without saying that this is a big honor and achievement for being our first year.

I am honored and saddened by this show. It is not often that a promoter gets to do the full ride along with a band, I booked BRAATA for their first show and now 6 years later their last.

One Year and a 100 Shows

One Year and a 100 Shows

Is it July already? I can not believe it, I really can't it has been a year since I moved back to Modesto and wow what a ride it has been(could only have been cooler if it was in a 57 Chevy.) I have reconnected with a lot of old friends and made so many new ones over the last year. In the past 12 months I have booked over a 100 shows with national, international and tons of locals. Brought  Legends and Icons such as Ian McLagan, Agent Orange, Roddy Radiation/Lynval Golding of the Specials, Annabella Lwin(of Bow Wow Wow), Reverend Horton Heat. Created two series Rockabilly Cruise Night and the Brew Ha Ha(with Jimmie Menezes) both of which have become very successful. Won a MAMA(Best Promoter) for myself and helped The Brewhouse win Best Venue. Earlier this year I started writing this column for the Modesto View and hope that you all have enjoyed reading it.
