We had a wonderful time hanging out with Portland band, the Minus Five at Marina del Rey & McCabes. So inspired by their talent, originality, creativity and above all KINDNESS, we are talking about sitting back down at our own writing table.

Last week's debut of "Retro Night," at The San Fernando, was a great night of sharing 'music in common.' Several players who had come to support the Happy Hour crew, hung out, complimented our set and shared stories from the road. Our show included iconic hits of the 60's, 70's and a few 80's and 90's from the repertoire of The Kinks, Beatles, Bonnie Raitt, Linda Rondstadt, Hall & Oats, Moody Blues and Amy Winehouse. It was especially fun whether the crowd was joining in on "Dreams," (mostly the ladies) or harmonies on Nights in White Satin.

We're currently working on some Valley venues to keep the momentum going. When they land, we'll let you know.

Meanwhile, if you'd like to add our "soundtrack of your youthful indiscretions," to your party, you can reach us at the link above, "Stay in touch!," or call 818 631-1757. It's all  just a click or phone call away.... and then, new memories...

 We hope you enjoy looking around and listening to our songs.  While we are proud our EP "Animated" placed #118 in the Top 200 2015 Folk Albums in the Roots Music Report, and  "I'm Thankful For The Love" was #68 for Top Folk Singles, we have to admit that's so 2015. Hence we hit the ground running for 2016, and have added "Juntos Siempre," our Spanish version of "Side By Side." You can hear it here, by pressing the "play arrow" in the left column, or go to our music page (where you can see what else we have done).                                                                                                                             

Jim's Art Of the Song podcast, "30 minutes R&R History In LA," is up at Art of the Song, where he shares stories from his past in the LA music "scene," as a staff writer, playing clubs on The Strip and meeting various luminaries behind the scenes (like Herb Alpert and David Crosby). To give a listen, hit the button "podcast and interviews,"at the top-right of this page.  

Our music is streaming  exclusively at www.soundcloud.com/tapiacorel, if you'd like to listen to our full repertoire, some of which are available for download at CD Baby.com/partnersncrime22.
