Events and entertainment whether in the West End, featuring West End Performers or within walking distance are always plentiful.We know you can’t possibly do everything so here’s photos & videos to show you what you missed.
Quarter Mile Combo- played at Hopmonk Tavern. This 4 piece Americana Rockabilly band features the West End’s own Justin Barr on guitar, vocalist Nettie Hammar, drummer Gary Daly and Todd Troublemaker on bass. A great show. They have a recently released cd “Motels, Gas and Beer”. You will note that the cover photo is shot in front of the DeTurk Winery building. Got to love that band!
Ken Risling and Avery Risling-Sholl– Performed at Aroma Roasters. Ken sings his original songs, Avery offers traditional Celtic music, songs and fiddle. There were other guests, Oona Risling-Sholl sang a song with her father, Ken. Kate Sholl joined the whole family for a few songs. There were also members from the S. F. Scottish Fiddlers. An incredible night.
Santa Rosa ADULT Gong Show– This is a live version of the old T. V. show- but with an adult rating. The show, produced by Kelly Cowan & Jacquie Smith, was hilarious and everyone looks forward the next one. Watch S. R. ADULT Gong Show- Click Here!
Save our Pools– Almost 6oo people ran/walked through the West End Neighborhood on Sunday for the “Save our Pools” 5 K. West Enders watched them from their front porches and cheered them on with cowbells and waves. Racers got to see the DeTurk Round Barn, our two lovely parks and historic homes- many for the first time. West Ender Veronica Jordan and her friend, Ann Figurski made a big splash dressed in swimming attire and sporting “Save our Pools” across their baby bumps. See Press Democrat News story
