La Grange, CA...Time for a Spring wildflower tour, destination La Grange. The Odd Fellows of Lafayette Historical Lodge #65 remind you of our monthly breakfast, always on the second Sunday at the IOOF Hall in downtown La Grange. Sunday April 8th is the date this month.

Breakfast is served in the down-home atmosphere of our 1881 vintage Odd Fellows Hall, the scene of many town events and social gatherings, located on the main street at 30018 Yosemite Blvd.

While you’re in La Grange, look for the Adobe Barn located at the east end of town just past the windmill. The oldest structure in the area, it was a landmark when French sailors found gold in 1848.

12:00 PM - 04:00 PM Murphys Old Timers Museum Will Display "Cattle in the Sierras " Through April
Murphys, CA...Funded by a California Stories grant from California Humanities, the Murphys Old Timers Museum, has produced an exhibit on the long-established practice of transhumance in the California Foothills and Sierra Nevada. Since gold was discovered in California in the winter of 1848, cattle have roamed the foothills in winter and spring, summered in the rich grasslands of the Sierra Nevada, and returned to their lowland homes in the fall. This annual pattern (transhumance), with established ranches and farms in the lower elevations and summer camps and pasturages in the high mountain meadows, is rapidly disappearing. Threatened with the diminishing price of beef to producers, difficulties in transporting livestock to their summer ranges, and environmental regulations, this 160-year old California tradition may disappear in the near future. Proponents of grazing argue that this will result in loss of mountain meadows and ponds as well as lowland ranches with their grass ranges to residential sprawl. Some environmental and hiking groups contend that livestock grazing in the mountains has led to degradation of streams and native ecosystems. The exhibit, and a video, recount the stories of historic cattle ranching in the California foothills and its battle to stay alive in the face of current environmental and economic challenges, also addressing the effects of its continued operation on mountain ecosystems. Utilizing historical and current photographs and the installation of a 1911 high country cow camp, this exhibit argues that by working together to solve grazing issues, ranchers, the Forest Service, scientists, environmental groups, and the public can resolve their differences, resulting in a win-win for all. A 15-minute video, presenting both sides of the issue and a hope for reconciliation, is forthcoming.




The exhibit will be on display at the Murphys Old Timers Museum, 470 Main Street, Murphys Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays 12 pm to 4 pm through April 29, 2018. Call for more info 728-1160.

03:00 PM Calaveras County Arts Council is Proud to Present the Mario Flores Latin Jazz Band, on April 8th
Angels Camp, CA...Calaveras County Arts Council is proud to present the Mario Flores Latin Jazz Band, a quartet of Jazz musicians, plus special guests at 3 p.m. on Sunday, April 8, 2018. Mario Flores is a popular conga player who leads a band of musicians in steamy, vibrant soundscapes in the tradition of Tito Puente, Cal Tjader and Mongo Santamaria. Tropical jazz lights up the Bret Harte Theater. Band leader Mario Flores said listeners at the Latin Jazz concert on April 8 at the Bret Hart Theater should expect fireworks.


They’ll be playing standards, to be sure, but Flores promised that “you’re going to hear tunes that a lot of people have never heard before.”

Flores’s band, made up of four musicians—Flores on conga, Clinton Day on Bass, Mark Gee on Keyboards, and Michael Miller on percussion—plays the shimmering beats of Cuban Jazz and music in the tradition of Tito Puente, Cal Tjader and Mongo Santamaria,. “We play a lot of old school Latin Jazz,” Flores said, but they also play modern tunes, including music written and arranged by Gee.

Flores, who grew up in Modesto has deep roots in the Central Valley, where Latin Jazz was the background sound of his family. “I grew up on that music,” he said. “My father was a Jazz drummer. He collected vinyl. Musicians like Tito Puente and also Carlos Santana.”

Flores, who often plays with the Columbia College Jazz bands, said he’s bringing some special guests from the respected Tuolumne school music program. Rod Harris on saxophone and Johnny Valdes will be joining Flores’s band to add to the sound.

And he’s expecting some Jazz vocalists from Columbia as well, and although he can’t yet be specific, he said, “There will be some exciting vocal leads.”

The concert won’t be only Jazz. “There will be a wide variety of music,” Flores said. “Pop to Jazz to Latin to Rock. All melted into high energy.” But Jazz will be the focus. Dancing is encouraged.

“The band has been studying this kind of music for years. We play it because we love it. I never get tired of playing this kind of music.”
