Pattie and I just listened to those tracks, and now REALLY REALLY cannot wait to get to Playa. Nice work Stu!

With some luck, maybe Chris will be back before we leave Playa. (?) If not, I'm sure we'll find some good music--we always do!

We went diving with JJ and I think that's what he said. We're finally going to sit down and watch the DVD tonight. I'll post a review. I'm sure it's great.

I think I met you at Bad Boyz when we were there earlier this month. I know you met my husband, aka Mr. Roadhouse Blues. Very anxious to see the other DVD's. Good job on everything so far.

We watched the DVD last night - "The Last Night at Keith's Bar". It was great. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves Playa. It was so much fun to see so many people that we know. Heather was there and looking very cute. Tyra, with a big smile as always. I saw Oregon Deb and too many others to mention. Most are not board members I don't think, but if you hang in Playa a lot, you'll know at least 1/2 of them. There was a guy in the front row with his Nerak beads on, but I didn't know him.

It ended on kind of a humorous, unplanned note. Then the credits rolled....

Heather...........as herself
Michael............as himself
Tyra................as herself

and so on. It was very good. Order it!!!!!

Thanks mate!

We have just added one more of Chris's song videos shot last Monday in Playa : "Angel of Mercy". Memo is playing backing guitar.

This track "Angel of Mercy" is also on Chris's studio-recorded album (which incidentally is available for purchase from myself here in Playa (in Chris's absence)).

Here's the link to the latest song/video on Chris' myspace page:
Angel of Mercy

and here's the newly designed front-cover of Chris Bolister's studio-recorded CD :

Oh i'm sure he'll be back sooner than you think....... ;-)

By the way, i now have a compilation DVD available of Chris singing at Siesta Fiesta the night before he left town.
Songs include "Truck Driving Man", ·"Hey Now G", "Angel of Mercy". Better visual & audio quality obviously than the songs available via Myspace (same songs though!)

Also, i have a DVD of "Angela", the female singer who was on honeymoon here about a week or so ago with her Australian husband Paul. Filmed her at Bourbon St. and Bad Boys and have a DVD with 6 tracks on it.
- She was a really fantastic singer - I said to Captain Dave (owner of Bad Boys) a week ago :"Dave, Angela has got to be one of the best singers i've ever seen here".

He said "No - she's THE best singer that's ever played here".

For sure, he generally plays 3 or 4 nights a week.
try wandering along to Siesta Fiesta bar on 5th Ave, between 8th and 10th st., around 6:30 - 9pm. That was his previous slot there on Sundays/Mondays/Tuesdays before. I know he'll be playing there again.

Oh and on an associated note, he has a new DVD out called "The Bolister Sessions (Chris Bolister live in Mexico)" which was filmed in May this year right here in Playa. It'll be on sale at his gigs when he's back here next week for 150pesos (US$15).
Tracks Chris plays on that new DVD include songs Johnny Cash, the Rolling Stones, Oasis, the Cure, the Beach Boys (yes!), and many of his own songs too. (including one song never before filmed called 'Kids On the Couch'.... parental guidance suggested... )

Yep, he flew into town as my birthday present!! We're off to eat at Babe's and then heading to Pinche Gringo's to watch the Cubs (lose). Hopefully Chris will turn up, but it's pretty far north for him, so I don't know.
