A break in the rain for love!

Rain can make a wedding day stressful for everyone concerned, although if you live in California you know we pray for rain so that our land can stay luscious. March can be tricky, but we were blessed with rain in the morning followed by the most beautiful sunny Spring afternoon possible!

To make matters more challenging an insidious virus had made it’s way into our reality and canceled plans for some important guests, but the bride and groom were steadfast, and on the blessing of the Rabbi, proceeded to be wed with friends and family at Green Valley Farm in Sonoma County.

I feel blessed to have helped them celebrate a wonderful day after braving these odds!

Gem & Jam Festival – 2020 success!

It was great working with Gem & Jam founders again, producing a large music and arts festival outside of Tucson in Arizona. This year’s event was the best so far for festival attendees with a resilient and cohesive team running the show.

Working with people who are dependable, kind to one another, upbeat and on point makes all the difference when it comes to everyone’s performance. We were a happy team, and I look forward to the next!

Here are some photos from the event.

SonoMusette joins SoozMusic!

SoozMusic is extremely excited to welcome and introduce SonoMusette!

SonoMusette recaptures the moody, melancholic sound and spirit of mid twentieth-century Paris. Inspired by the great performers of the era, such as Edith Piaf, Jacques Brel, and Django Reinhardt along with contemporary artists such as Zaz. This music has retained it’s power to charm and transport audiences, and SonoMusette taps that nostalgia with artistry in vocals and instrumentation.

The band features French singer Mimi Pirard whose renditions of these timeless French classics provide a freshness and excitement that is contemporary, yet faithful to the spirit and tradition of the original versions. Few singers are capable of doing justice to Piaf and Brel, and even fewer can match Pirard’s mesmerizing interpretation and powerful delivery. The band is comprised of period instrumentation featuring Robert Lunceford – accordion, Isaac Vandeveer – guitar and bass, Jan Martinelli – upright bass and piano, and Richard Andrews on drums.

If you would like to book SonoMusette at your event, please be in touch: sooz@soozmusic.com

Another love knot tied!

What a beautiful day in the rural hills and dales of Sonoma County, California.  Blessed with blue skies and warm temperatures the bride and groom made their vows and inspired us all with their love for each other.

I love coordinating weddings and creating an experience for others to sit back and enjoy. In a perfect setting with a wonderful team this was a piece of cake!

Ahhhh, love rules again!

Who do you know that’s getting married and needs a hand? Let Sooz take care of all your wedding needs for a perfectly designed experience. sooz@soozmusic.com

Tumbleweed Soul!

Super stoked to welcome TUMBLEWEED SOUL to SoozMusic Agency!
Sweet vocals, guitar and ukelele from the lovely Stephanie Salva​ and Adam Walsh​ –

Tumbleweed Soul is an American roots project based in West 
Sonoma County, led by Stephanie Salva and Adam Walsh.  The pair have been rocking the West Coast music scene in various projects for over a decade, best known for their joint role in the beloved SF North Bay band the Jug Dealers.  With powerful harmonies and eclectic songwriting that is both familiar yet fresh, their growing catalogue of original songs reflects their love of the deep city juke joints and country shacks where Americana was born.  Jazz, Blues, R&B, Country, Funk, Soul, and Old Timey Traditionals all find a home at a Tumbleweeds show.
