July 3rd: Mark your calendars

It's gonna be crazy Monday night, given that Tuesday is a holiday. I can hardly wait. I don't have to get up and go to work the next morning, so I'm totally gonna hang 'till after the last note of the night.


I stopped by The Artisan to see Ronnie and the guys last night (Jamie Hosmer on keys, Gabriel Falcon on drums, Drew Zingg on guitar, and Adrian Garcia on bass) for a short while. Took a few casual shots and did a quick montage. 'eh? (click the pic to enlarge)

Lo and behold: in today's Las Vegas Sun is a two page article starting on page 1 of the Sun (within the R-J) -- a very nice article about The Artisan. Quoting the article by the Sun's Jerry Fink, "...the big draw is Ronnie Foster, who performs from 10 p.m. until 1 a.m. Thursdays and Saturdays at the Artisan. Foster's main gig for the past four years has been playing keyboards backing Clint Holmes at Harrah's. A native of Buffalo, N.Y., Foster recorded several funky albums as a bandleader and has been a sideman for the likes of George Benson, Stevie Wonder, Roberta Flack and Jimmy Smith. He started doing local shows with his own group as a sideline, and DaSilva persuaded them to come to the Artisan about two months ago..."

The hardcopy article is way cooler than the online version. I first wrote about the Artisan gig back in April. It's a great hang. Be sure to check it out.
