On December 20, from 11:00am – 1:00pm on the street corner in front of Copperfield’s Books Petaluma (140 Kentucky Street); Los Gu’achis will be playing their special brand of music of the Southwest, Mexico and Early California.  They are asking that you drop of few coins in the donation bucket that day with a dream to raise enough money to tune the piano at Petaluma People Services Center Adult Day & Respite Program.  Our Adult Day program is a place where frail seniors in Petaluma can come to make new friend, participate in stimulating programs, have a delicious hot lunch prepared at the PPSC Nutrition site, and get some mild exercise and relaxation. Los Gu’achis is a favorite band of the seniors. Los Gu’achis is a Petaluma, California-based quartet that plays instrumental music of the Southwest, Early California, Mexico and other places. The band has played at festivals, theaters, restaurants, art galleries, public libraries, private parties and more.  Members of the group are Barbara Arhon (violin), Steve Della Maggiora (accordion and lead guitar), Chris Samson (rhythm guitar) and Tracy Grisman (bass).

This video is just a sample of the fun that they have at the Adult Day Program. https://www.losguachis.com/listen.html watch the Hohokam Polka and see the big smiles on our seniors as they dance.  So while you are out getting the last of your holiday shopping done, drop a few coins in the guitar case and help us tune that grand old piano at the PPSC Adult Day; so seniors for the next 40 years will be able to enjoy music provided by our community.
