Flamingo/Potrero News

May 29, 2009

If you’ve been wondering why musician don Carlos hasn’t appeared at any of his usual venues lately, it’s because he is spending a month in his native Uruguay.

Carlos has been in the recording studio working on a CD with his original band, Alvacast. He will also be performing at Club La Trastienda, one of the most important venues in Montevideo. Carlos is really enjoying being reunited with friends, family, fans and fellow musicians. Don’t miss his homecoming performance with Dave Nelson June 5 at Marie’s Restaurant in Flamingo.

Also performing at Marie’s on June 12 are The Hermanos Brothers, a really interesting duo based in Sámara. Argentine Hernán Olalla is an accomplished bassist, drummer, guitarist and singer, while Tico Sean Dibango is an incredible saxophonist who doubles on clarinet and flute. You can sample a taste of their music by visiting www.myspace.com/themhermanosbrothers. Marie’s will also host a June 20 performance of the play “Love Letters” by San José’s Little Theatre Group. Tickets are $30 including dinner.

Welcome back to Steve and Ruth Wilson, who are visiting from Phoenix, Arizona. The couple supported the BeachCommunityChurch congregation as a guest speaker and fill-in pastor for vacation relief purposes a few years ago. After that, they moved to the U.S. state of Washington to work with the Hispanic population there, then to Phoenix to continue their good works.

Surfside/Potrero resident Lauren Neigenfind hopped on a plane from southern California to come for a quick visit to check on his home and other personal business. He had a chance to visit with some of his dear friends. He and his entire family are missed in our community, and we wish them all the best.
