Twenty five years to get his Mojo working

Dan Horne revs up with solo album

Palo Alto’s best young bands

Begun three years ago by the moms of teens in local high school rock bands, an annual rock concert-benefit for the Ecumenical Hunger Program continues this year on Saturday, Dec. 16. Appearing on stage for this “Palopalooza” of talent are: the Dan Horne Trio, the Electrocutes (formerly Ragady Anne), Brain Monkey, the Gremmies, Pino Pino and Inspected by No. 7. The local bands will play from 8 p.m.-midnight at the Mitchell Park Community Center. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Bring a quality toy or food item for the Ecumenical Hunger Program and you get in free. Come empty-handed and you’ll shell out $5. All high school band members are donating their time and talents. For more information, call 329-2390. 12/15/1995 ie 25 years ago…I think I had this flyer for about 22 years until I got married, moved in with the wife and donated or sold 25 boxes of books, 100 hand written spiral notebooks, two boxes of demo tapes sic sent by bands wanting to play my concert series — but certain things stuck in my brain, so I noticed a little write up in a recent Mojo Magazine about Dan Horne — who I had actually reached out to about a year ago. He’s the bass player in a leading Dead cover band and numerous other projects. Rock on! (Note: the number printed may have been the number for Lisa Robertson, Allison Robertson of the Donnas aka Ragady Anne.
