Redheads - We pulled it off!
Fans came from all over the world - I saw banners from the Netherlands, Brazil, Belgium, Japan! And of course the US was represented, I saw St Louis, Delaware, Phoenix and there were many more!
Thanks to all of you Redheads for your bday wishes! Here are some photos of last night's party at El Paseo
The whole dinner was awesome, complete with some vintage wine from my birth year, 1947!! Some say that the wine has held up a little better than I have, haha.
Redheads, am I the luckiest man in the world or what?? I get to celebrate my birthday today, and again on Saturday the 18th with you all in Las Vegas! And if anyone in Vegas or Roseville wants to celebrate with me today, the team at the Cantina and the Island have put together a special birthday drink -- just ask for "Sammy's Special Birthday Cocktail!" I'll be toasting you all at dinner after today's rehearsal for the Vegas bash!
For over 25 years our staff has been the greatest. Most of them have been there from the beginning. When I saw this picture today it brought tears to my eyes. Everyone of those people cleaned, scrubbed, mopped, and shoveled mud and dirt from the Cantina -- it looks brand-new!
There are very few tourist in Cabo but our proud Dedicated employees have rolled up their sleeves and prepared the Cantina for The Cabo revival!!!!! I love the soul of the people of Los Cabos.
I wanna thank all the redheads for the party last nite at the island (especially with such short notice --sorry!) Vic and I really enjoyed ourselves!!! There's something really fulfilling as a singer about singing a whole show with just an acoustic guitar. It scares me to death, but when I'm done it feel's really, really good.
Hold tight Redheads - I'm waiting for the dust to settle down in Cabo.
The military and government are in charge right now & once the town is a little more stable I will figure out what to do to help. I want to thank all of you fans for your ideas and willingness to give and the best thing to do is just wait for now. Many of my friends, partners. and employees that are in Cabo are doing all they can at the Cantina to help people.
Roseville the other night was one of the best times I've had in a long time. What a great night - I haven't done two shows in one night since the Montrose days- ha! Having Montrose for the first set, then some solo stuff & some VH stuff all for the outdoor concert, and then going inside with Vic, Aaron and Mona and doing a whole acoustic set -- ouch!! But it was a blast, the fans seemed really happy, and I'm certainly happy! All I can say is: Redheads welcome to the Island!
Happy 4th of July Redheads! We are here in Maui enjoying summer. Here's the recipe if you want to join me in a rum-soaked watermelon - yeeeah!!
Sammy's Beach Bar Rum-Soaked Watermelon
Kari and I just tasted the new cubano sandwich (both of our fav) at El Paseo Restaurant. After seeing the movie "The Chef" I asked chef Michael Ward to make me one and he hit it out of da park!!!! Wow slammin best ever. Now the newest item to the El Paseo menu! Sammy
