All right you guys,  Here is a news flash that should get a lot of you some 
work if you get off your Butts and go get it quickly:

Old Sacramento is trying desperately to reach out to the community and get 
some drastic changes into the neighborhood, and guess what they want?????

Live Music that appeals to and will draw an OLDER CROWD between 25 & 50 years 

Hello Hello Hello  Opportunity Knocks AGAIN.

They want to get rid of the Hip Hop crowd that is crawling the area on the 
weekends and causing many problems.

O'Malley's has already committed to live music every weekend for the next 
year, and all of the other clubs are falling into line and are willing to make 

There is absolutely no reason why that neighborhood can't become the French 
Quarter West if all the OKOM bands that live in Sacramento get off their arses 
and go negotiate some gigs before somebody else does.

All I want for the tip is the rights to operate the house of the rising Sun 
  The only thing that surprises and mystifies me is that none of you 
Sacramento Jazz Society bands were on top of this problem and did nothing but walk 
right past the opportunity under your noses for the past how many years?  while 
you run an OKOM festival right in the neighborhood.

I played a gig in Sacramento last week and right afterwards drove down to Old 
Town to see how many vacant nightclubs were sitting there begging for 
somebody to open and run them.  Looks like a Ghost town down there folks.  Seems to 
me the Sacramento Jazz Society should own the entire neighborhood.
