Darlene & Trivalve, July 4, 2011
3 of the last 4 years, BCO has played the Glorietta (where Sammy goes to school) Sweetheart dance. This time around, our line up was fronted by Ann Hughes and Earl Harell, with Orlando on drums. Alas, likely our last engagement there. The gig was followed by a hearty meal of Mexican food at El Jarro.
Operating under an alias, BCO played their 7th (!!) Corpus Christi Crab Feed on Jan.24, a fundraiser of epic proportion. The night the band was known as “The Confirmed” celebrated Darlene’s send-off gig, as she’s now doing a 3 month engagement in Japan. Our old friend Gail came along for the “British Invasion” set, Nancy CRANKED on sax, Orlando laid down a fat back beat, and Ray delivered some polished and soulful vocals.
here are a few choice photos of the band from the January 10 gig at the Fox Oakland
We have the distinction of being on the bill at the first performance at the newly rennovated historic Fox Theater in Oakland’s burgeoning uptown district. Headlining the show: the Reverend Al Green. A great set of photos appears here, check ‘em out!
