Hotel Valencia // Santana Row Staycation

Enjoy a great blog written by the Two Peas in A Prada. 

 

A lof of you may not know this, but Emily and I went to college together at Santa Clara University. Being away from our families and living in the dorms was a huge adjustment for us. We always looked forward to visits from our parents. Not only because we got to see them, but because that meant we got to stay with them at the Hotel Valencia on Santana Row.

Tuesday, July 30th – Lumberyard,  British Pop, Alternative, Melodic Pop Rock 

LUMBERYARD is a "good-time, foot stompin' classic rock, funk, soul, techno dance band." The name came courtesy of the late, great Jeff Slingerland. The word LUMBERYARD seemed to be earthy yet not to dirty, obtuse yet still reaky with clarity, appealing un-repulsive and lastly; visually stimulating. Men think of building workshops and women think of knotty pine. Somehow it works... 

The music itself flows from the "great fountain of musical gestation" era, imho, 1965-1975, plus some 80s-90s thrown in for a good, slightly salty/sweaty flavor. Here can be found many of the musical building blocks/primordial stew, if you will, of the pop/rock/blues/funk/spoken word disco/temporal formats that constitute our song list. It harkens back to the day when an orange haired person wearing a powder blue leisure suit on trumpet could "jam" (to improvise over a designated chord structure and/or sometimes just one chord) with a leather clad 18th Century Dandy on swizzle stick not to mention the platform shoe wearing bassist in a green neon nurse's uniform. Difficult to imagine in this uptight Twittery Facebooky Googley Internet Webs (sic) modern day world...
