Well folks, sometimes the will to rock never dies. Monte Moses and his band, Road South, formed in college in the early '70s. They headlined most of their gigs at bars around Napa, when the valley looked like one giant farm.
Eventually, careers and families took hold of Monte and the gang, and, like most rock 'n' roll bands, the flame burned out. But not forever...
The band has recently restrung their axes and sharpened their sticks to rise out of the ashes. And on Saturday July 9, Road South will be kicking out the jams at Vineland Station, where, as you can see below, the proceeds will benefit the Furaha Community Center of Nairobi, Kenya.
Check out the flier:
Where Karl Lawrence comes in:
Ric, who used to be a killer saxophonist, played in a slew of jazz combos with his old pal Monte from the 7th through the 11th grades.
Will Ric get up there and wail with Road South on the sax?
Most likely not.
But... he will be there pouring all of you some Karl Lawrence.
So head down to Vineland Station on July 9, drink some good wine, and shake it.
