He’ll be at Sam’s Burger Joint this Thursday, April 14th promoting his newest cd “Untold Stories”. I told him he’s still an honorary Texan even though he hails from Finland.  He’s been providing South Texas with his Texopean style for well over 18 years and calls his north side Say Town residence ‘home’ when he’s not tearing it up in Europe and Asia.  He’s on lists that also include names like “Clapton” and “Pink Floyd” and is sponsored by Gibson GLOBALLY.  Musical street creds? 💯

I missed his previous appearance at Sam’s Burger Joint last year and literally would writhe in pain when people gushed about his performance.  Get your tickets early.  He dabbles with time signatures that use the number 7 in the denominator.  Comprendé?

You kinda have to hear it to understand.

Thanks for the coffee, the excellent music and the faith, Señor Tuominen.

…and no, I’m not Black Coffee but that’s an awesome band/stage name.

Great stage.  Freedom of expression and screaming.

For years, San Antonio has consistently maintained a record amount of MLK March attendees; beating out the largest metroplexes.  I believe it has something to do with the diversity in this great city.  If you have ever been to a march, you were probably more than just pleasantly surprised to see the many different people who walked with you.  The essence of peace is in the air as well as a coming-together of beautiful souls from different backgrounds.

The march starts at 10:00.  Hope to see you there.

VIA Metropolitan Transit will offer complimentary bus service to the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day March on Monday, Jan. 18, 2016.

To access the service, riders are asked to park at Freeman Coliseum, 3201 E. Houston St. (Lot 1), or St. Philip’s College, 1801 Martin Luther King Dr. (Lot 22), between 8 and 10 a.m., Monday. The drop-off point for service to the march will be on MLK Drive, west of Upland Drive. The pick-up location for return service will be at Pittman Sullivan Park, 1101 Iowa St. Buses will return between noon and 3 p.m.”

  Tap into yourself with a fluid vinyasa yoga class hosted inside the Freetail Brewing Co. Southtown brewery. After class, sip on a cold pint of local craft beer and socialize with fellow yogis in the Freetail Taproom. This all level class is a great way to introduce beer lovers to the practice of yoga in a casual and lighthearted environment. It’s also a perfect opportunity for yogis to enjoy the heightened pleasure of a post-asana brew.
