In between Lopez Beatles spectaculars, Romans extravaganzas, and going on tour with Wes, Steve, Russ, or Carlene, I showed up to play these shows. In the Los Angeles/Santa Monica/Long Beach metroplex unless otherwise noted.
This is not at all complete.
There are possibly mistakes. Catch them if you can.
I don't remember some of these shows. Not because I was drinking. I wasn't drinking!
Some of them might not have happened.
On the rock dates I'd most likely be playing piano and/or organ and quite possibly mandolin and/or accordion, and from time to time the electrical guitar.
On the folk dates I'm probably playing mandolin, accordion, maybe piano, maybe guitar.
Historical elucidations and links galore, thisaway.
