May 2016 - Big News

Big news indeed!! I just bought a house in Santa Rosa.  The months of searching high and low paid off.  Here are views of the front and side looking out at the view.  Very pretty spot, and almost a third of an acre with room for a croquet court, garden, orchard, racoons, wild turkeys and no doubt, gophers.

It is a fixer, so you know what I'll be doing over the next year to forever.  Painting and re-carpeting is going on now in the bedrooms, but the big project is to open up the kitchen, dining and living rooms into a space for music gatherings and house concerts.  And that will take awhile.  Feeling frustrated about Trump or Hillary?  Come visit.  I'll give you a big hammer to knock down a couple of walls.

More big news: My mini-tour with Susan Marie Reeves is coming up in a couple of weeks. I am thrilled to be playing with Susan, a super fine songwriter with a lovely voice.  Don't take my word for it; listen here. We call our duo Reeves 'N Zat and our first show is in Berkeley at the Monkey House, sharing the bill with Sugartown.

From Berkeley we head to Monterey with Kiki Wow, and then to California's Central Coast for a couple of dates with Steve Key's Songwriters At Play, and we finish up on Wednesday the 25th, in South Pasadena at Brad Colerick's Wine & Song.   All the details are here.

Last month, I was back in Washington DC checking up on my grandson and his parents. He will celebrate his first birthday at the end of this month, and is showing great potential as a drummer. He likes to bang on things.   His parents are a bit sleep deprived but otherwise coping very well

Hope you are doing well too, and if you have a minute to let me know what you are up to, I always enjoy that.

Very best,

Roy Zat
