Makin' It Happen at Peabody's
Editor, the Ojai and Ventura View
As spring gets started, the Brian Faith Band and Friends put together a nice mid-week session for a delightful dinner and wine crownd in Montecito.
The band members, Ernie Joseph (lead guitar/vocals), Cory Orosco (keyboards/vocals), and Brian Faith (sax/vocals) reconnected with friends: singer Ed Langlo, drummer Bob Bowman, singer-songwriter Jim Haggerty, Terry, Ted, Arlie, and Trev.
Manager Warren Clark, so cool. Also, bartender Jeff kept the smooth drinks and wine flowing. And did I mention the food? Great salad bar and lunch/dinner menu.
Also in attendance were John and Grace De Soto Ferry, who discussed their recent feature-length rockumentary, "Makin' It - The Band", which features a unique look at the making of the Brian Faith Band.
This is a real story with real people, none of the common afflictions most rock bands get bogged down in -- drugs and the fast lane -- like, why would we care? This talks about the roots and formation of a musical family and also takes us on a trip through the evolution of music itself. Look for a more exclusive in-depth on this film in the coming issues.
As most locals in the know know and get, the Brian Faith Band and Friends are a real family of musicians, including quite a few great players in their extended family tree.
Stop by Salzer's in Ventura for live and studio music recordings of the Brian Faith Band.
