On the scene – The band scene in town is hot!

About Oceans 3 ” “all Frank (Sinatra), all night” ” at the Stonehouse over the weekend: man about town Don Baumgart says, “They were excellent! Good jazz. Next time they appear on your radar, don’t miss ’em.”

Were you at the Del Oro Saturday night? “Parrots” sold out, 400 seats

worth, I heard. A great start for the mural project kitty.

The band scene is hot. Local band Mystafya is getting around these days promoting its CD, “Run Free.” Tonight they’re playing at the famous Power House Pub in Folsom, 9 p.m., if you’re in the neighborhood ((916) 355-8586). We also learned that the easy listening heavy metal band Ivory Tower trumped nine other bands to win the Del Oro Battle of the Bands at Loomis High. DJ of the five-person, 3-year-old band called it “an accomplishment.” For future gigs, call him at 477-2859.

Music in the Mountains’ Spring Fest starts Friday (through the 10th)

with a variety of instrumental performances, from piano to chamber to

percussion to electronic. Call the box office at 265-6124.

Just a little note when sending stories, press releases ” any

information via e-mail ” please don’t send it html because strange symbols replace quotes, making the copy look definitely weird. Best to send it “plain text.”

Just a reminder that the Friday before the issue you want to be

mentioned in is the deadline for your press release. And submitting photos via e-mail is best when they are in jpg format, 150 dpi, large (4 in. x 6 in. or larger), and with a caption, please.

Any reviewers out there? CDs, dvds, videos, and movies are fair game. Talk to me if interested in exploring this. Also reviews of plays that are in mid-run, so folks can still see them.
