Every Wednesday at noon, music happens at the Wellness and Advocacy Center off of Chanate Road in Santa Rosa. It's a synergistic blend of community, medical/psychological staff and users of the day programs at the center.
The music is way beyond good. A foundation of excellent keyboard, guitar and harmonica are spiced with saxophone, misc percussion and voices.
All comers are welcome to bang on the bongo's, shake a tambourine, sing or bring their own. Everyone that's game gets to solo, the mikes are generously shared.
The sound system is haphazard but can't restrain the seamless shift from blues to rock to rap to country. It's loud and energetic. It's a drug without a prescription. It's amazing!
Don the Trustee
When my mother passed very suddenly some 16 years ago, I worked as a trustee for the first time. Her trust contained walnut orchards, peach orchards and a small vineyard. One of the properties was within the sphere of influence of the adjacent city and I dove in with the neighbors and started working on annexation. Loved this work back then and still find it very satisfying today.
