"I owe Shelley, Dave and the Local Music Vibe a heartfelt debt of gratitude. If it hadn’t been for their efforts and the weekly LMV gatherings at one Marin café’ or another, I would not have met Mari Tamburo, a brilliant artist/singer/songwriter. From some of those initial weekly meet-ups, Mari found out that I was a drummer and had some of the same tastes as she in music. As we got to know each other, I found out that she was putting a band together to support her nearly finished recording and had some songs yet to record to finish the project. I told her I was interested in auditioning for the drum slot in her band and in recording. The rest is history…! I passed the audition and became the drummer for the newly formed “Mari Mack & Livin’ Like Kings” Blues Band. And, before long, we were in the studio rehearsing and recording. In addition , while we were rehearsing at the Bass Rehearsal Studio in San Rafael, I managed to meet a few other producers who were finishing projects and got some choice well paid session work playing drums and percussion on some other album projects. Then, after seeing Livin Like Kings at the 2009 Sausalito Art Festival, a Bay Area TV Production Company, Acme Spots, hired us to do a network Television spot for Anthem-Blue Cross, which is still in regular rotation. Since then our album “Can’t Go Back”was released and the band has done a number of promotional gigs including back to back record release concert events at 142 Throckmorton Theater in Mill Valley, CA. and Rancho Nicasio in Nicasio, CA. So thanks a million Local Music Vibe, and especially Shelley and David Champine for your vision, ingenuity and hard work. All that said, I want to urge ALL you other musicians, songwriters, bands, clubs, venues, agents and production pro’s to get involved with the Local Music Vibe in some way. Join the group, start a page on the LMV website…something. Let’s come together, do the networking dance, help each other make music we want to make and with that a living doing what we love to do…!"
-- Rob (RJ) Franco, drummer
“LMV is a bad ass site! It's way better than [big concert listing site] imo.”
--Horizontal Bob (Sonic Shift), Stockton CA
