Dr Marm never without my Nikon!

The Nickel Slots Play Sac in the Park

With summer here, there are many traditions that spring up, one of them is in Cesar Chavez Park–music on Friday evenings.   

Cesar E. Chavez Park Plaza

 I had the pleasure to visit and hear a local band, The Nickel Slots on June 11th.  Great music and atmosphere.  

Last Minute Details

The band is local and has 4 members:  Tony Brusca lead singer and acoustic guitar, Paul Zinn bassist and mandolin, brothers Amaral–Christopher on drums and Steve on electric guitar.  

The plaza is surrounded by great architecture…just a hint for your view

Lead Singer, Tony Brusca

If you like country music, you will love their music.  Great style–country, pop, and rock.  (Remember, I am not music knowledgable!  Seemed like that to my ears.)  

Bassist, Paul Zinn

Was not the only one present with a camera–bet his shots were much better detail…I chose to stay in the “Beer Garden Area” and would have to have crossed over the netting to get better shots. Content and happy with friends and my 70-300mm.

Rocking and Singing--Steve and Tony

The evening was really great–other bands played before, diverse crowd–all walks of life, enjoying a common passion of music, food, and fun!

    Very nice, you’ve taken me to place I wouldn’t have known about, and made me feel I was there enjoying it. Thanks, and great work with your Nikon.
