Happy Holidays!

Haven't sent a letter out since October. Did you miss the news?

Well, we had a lot of private parties in November and December and of course many were holiday themed. I think we've finally got "Baby It's Cold Outside" down! After 5 holiday seasons, we now have a decent repertoire of jazzy xmas numbers just in case you're in need of that kind of thing next year.

Just a quick note about some upcoming dates to end/start off the years and also, I want to send out a big Thank YOU for staying tuned in and as always for your wonderful support of our musical endeavors. Life's a party...

Thursday, January 1, 2015 – New Skye Quartet – Lagunitas Taproom – 3:00pm - 6:00pm
A most excellent way to start of the New Skye year. Come on down for some "hair of the dog" if that sort of thing seems necessary... Otherwise, join us and share a Little Sumpin' Extra Wild in the Maximus Day Time Hop Stoopid and a gauranteed hoot on the first day of the New Year!

We love Tony's! BBQ oysters and the bay de Tomales that I love so well. Sunset, view, New Skye, what's not to like? Hope to see a lot of Barnaby's friends there.

Thursday, January 8 – New Skye Trio – Bluewater Bistro– 5:00pm - 8:00pm
Back in the amazing Bistro room where the sunsets, martinis, food and music are sublime. Ernesto and his staff make this our favorite New Skye sundown spot. Join us!

Friday, January 9 - New Skye Trio – Barley & Hops Tavern – 1:00pm - 5:00pm
We return to my hometown with great brews, food and an intimate setting that’s perfect for sing-a-longs. Robin, Bill and I just love playing this venue – so cozy, warm and thanks to Tish and crew. This evening we are joined by our special guest the ever entertaining, Lowell Daniels. Stop by, the beer flows like music...

Saturday January 17 - New Skye Duo - Santa Rosa Farmers Market – 9:30am – 1:00pm

Thanks to Joan Marler and her wonderful staff for making this our home away from home. We are pleased to announce that New Skye will be here on the third Friday of every month (mostly) in 2015.

Our first Crab Feed of the Season goes to... SBRAGIA! Thanks to Ed and Adam Sbragia and family for having Robin and I entertain at their Chardonnay and Crab Feast - open to Wine Club Members and the General Public. It's a beautiful thang...

New Skye at Lagunitas

You are Here, New Years Day, 2015...

Thank you once again, for all your support over the years. I hope you’ll stop by to enjoy the music and say hello, real soon.

Take care, Michael
