Saturday, March 20th, 2010

Betty Cantor-Jackson, longtime member of the Grateful Dead production team, tells of meeting George Harrison in a London recording studio in 1970. She gave him a bit of advice that worked out well for all of us.

Rubber Souldiers in west Marin Sunday 1/4

Tuesday, December 30th, 2008

This is adapted from bassist Paul Knight’s email announcement, so the “I” in this email is Paul…

Paul Knight & Friends at the Station House Cafe downtown Pt. Reyes Station 415/663-1515
Sunday Jan. 4th, 1st set : 5 – 6:30 / 2nd set 7:10 – 8:30

2nd annual Beatles sing-along
Chris Rowan : guitar
Lorin Rowan : guitar/ mandolin
David Gans : guitar
Paul Knight : bass
C.C. Dawson : percussion

Just about one year ago I put together a group for my monthly gig at the Station House after running into David Gans at a festival in Florida. When I asked him if there was anyone he’d like to get together with and anything musically he’d like to do if he had the chance, without hesitation he said Chris, Lorin & Beatles. I had no idea that this had been a very short lived project called Rubber Souldiers. Since then the band has had a revival, added CC Dawson on drums (snare & hihat at this gig) and is booking festival gigs for the spring & summer of ’09. Check out for more info and a really scary picture.

Hope you can make it,
