sandpoint events: Chris Proctor performs his magic guitar-work at Di Luna's: Sandpoint Blog - 02/27/11 06:03 AM
I went to a concert at Di Luna's last night featuring one of the most amazing guitarists I have ever seen. What I mean by purposely saying 'seen' instead of 'listened to' was pointed out by the artist during his show. He asked, "How many of you in the audience are guitarists?" Many raised their hands including myself and my friend Steve. He made the point that guitarists come to his shows and watch his chord structures and hand movements. Chris Proctor is the U.S. National Fingerstyle Guitar Champion and his abilities are jaw-dropping.
Critics call his guitar playing "breathtaking," "haunting," and "rich." … (2 comments)

sandpoint events: "Puppy Love" by Teresa Pesce, a romantic comedy: Sandpoint Blog - 02/23/11 08:22 AM
I interviewed the cast of "Puppy Love" on my radio show last week. First let me tell you these are the funniest troup to ever be on my show. There, I said it. Add to that the foible that I called the award-winning author Penny several times, even though her name is Teresa Pesce.
Bottom line is, if they are that funny just ad libbing and talking off-the-cuff on a radio show, the play must be hilarious.

The historic character of the building was maintained and highlighted in the renovation, and this restored facility is a fabulous addition to the community.
