Earthwise welcome Charlie Musselwhite , Oshman Family JCC, Sunday, 29. December 2019

Blues legend Charlie Musselwhite makes rare Palo Alto appearance, for “the holidays”: Chanukah, Christmas, Holi, ‘Festivus’, My Baby Done Left Me, Super Sunday. All shades of blue welcome to this non- denominational yet slightly funky event. Oakland soul treasure Valerie Troutt opens. 
Producers note: I met Charlie nearly 20 years ago when I was managing the pianist Henry Butler who was on tour with Charlie and Elvin and several others, Front Porch Blues tour.  Although I’ve been here on the peninsula for most of my life — and my parents Paul and Barbara Weiss z l were very active in the creation of this fabulous center /community —  I do like to mention where appropriate that I was born on the southside. Both of my parents are from Chicago, too although my dad’s tastes ran more to Les Brown than Charlie Musselwhite. (My dad like my grandfather and briefly me, sold Chevrolet; A few years into “Earthwise Productions“ my dad suddenly remembered that he had booked Les Brown into the opening of the University of Chicago Student Union in 1948.
