Los # 3 Dinners

Los # 3 Dinners

Saturday night and a Local favorite, Los # 3 Dinners was playing at the “COVE”.
It May have been a bit cold outside but, the band inside was hot.
With over 25 years of playing music. This band gets it right.
It was very apparent that Los # Number 3 Dinners love it on stage. They invite the audience to join in for some fun. Birthday girl “Regina “came to the stage rattling the maracas next to Lenny as he played his guitar.
Singing local favorite tunes like, I just want to make it home, Quiero un Camero, Living’ inside the loop, and the tune I like” San Antonio Dreaming”. Checking the dance floor, I saw Emily on the having a great time with her Friend’s.
What makes this band Special? It’s” home grown” and they understand San Antonio. That’s to say the people who live in S.A. It allows you to re-lives memories. It’s more like a bubbling feeling that wells up from deep within one self.
I ask Lenny in his checkered shoes, “Why #3 Dinner”
LENNY We used to be, # 2dinner… “We changed some band members, added some guacamole and raised the price LOL” and now it’s Los #3 Dinner.
Playing a couple of rolling stone tunes, friend and guest musician Dave Rodriguez came in to give a lending hand.
If you get the chance to see “Los #3 Dinners” I bet you’ll be an instant fan of this local favorite band.

“Abbey Rode” A Beatles Tribute band

Abbey Rode” A Beatles Tribute band

Out of Houston Texas, Abbey Rode was given a warm San Antonio welcome at Sam’s Burger Joint. On Guitar and key board: Johnny Ono On Guitar: Marty Comeaux On Bass Guitar: Jay Bourgeois On Drums: Bill Thompson The set started off with a strong rendition of “Back to the USSR” As the band said “It’s good old rock and roll” and the Baby –Boomers, and the twenty something’s in the audience truly agreed. Song after song, the good time came in like a tidal waves. In honor of the upcoming 50th Beatle anniversary coming to America, they played “All my Loving”, It’s the first song the Beatles played on the Ed Sullivan show. “Abbey Rode” played the gambit of music from the early years to the later years. They covered Songs from Help, Revolver, Abbey Road, Sargent Pepper, albums and plenty more. Album’s…. you know those round 12″ black things that spin round and round made from vinyl. You guys who never had opportunity to listen to LP 33 1/3rd (LP= Long Play). You’ll be surprised how well it sounds, not to mention the enjoyment you’ll get reading the liner notes and discovering the art work from the past. Couples slow dancing, in embracing in each other arms. Others just were swaying, to and fro. It was a memorable evening for all. Abbey Rode… No Beatle wigs or costumes Just Great Music!! One thing I did notice… they have Beatle’s boots on. Cool…….. Rock on Guys!!
