Last night at the Ace Cider Speakeasy proved to be a great venue to work out any bugs in the system! The general buzz from those in attendance was that we were excellent! 1st set jitters perhaps caused a couple of tempo problems, but that was corrected by the time the 2nd set started. Jeffrey (owner) and Stan (bar manager) were very pleased with our performance and want us back there again. Look for us to play there again once a month. In the meantime, we go back into the rehearsal studio to fix the rest of the bugs.

Planet Waves is back after a lengthy hiatus that saw 2 members move out of our home of Sonoma County, and another living in the East Bay who is now battling cancer. Founding member David Maciel (David MySky on Facebook), has rebuilt the band. We are now:
David Maciel- drums, vocals
Will Eichert- lead guitar
John Bedell- rhythm guitar, vocals
Dan Clark- bass guitar, vocals
Will is a most excellent lead guitarist with smooth tones. John comes to PWs from Liquid Sun Day out of the Petaluma area, and although Dan hasn't played with other bands recently, he's been hard at work at his home studio, and we clicked right out of the box at his audition.
Our first (major) show will be at the Forestville Club on Saturday, May 25th, but we went and scheduled a little "Sneak Preview" at Ace Cider Speakeasy Pub in Sebastopol this Friday, May 10th, from 8-11 pm.

Planet Waves wishes best of luck to Jimmie Brighton, Mike Kearney and Keith Jackson. Geography has led them to parts south and east of our home 'beach' I suppose one could say, of West Sonoma County, our home. PWs will be reforming over the winter and has plans for many more shows all over the Russian River area and Sonoma County in 2012 than in previous years.

We had the pleasure of having Jeff Stange join us at Music Spectrum in San Rafael, CA on 22 October 2011. Jeff is an amazing Hammond player with a great bluesy voice to go with it.
