On this day MAR 31, in 1995, was the first gig ever for BREEZ'N. The venue was at the Metaphor coffee house in Escondido. We had 2 sets of material mostly jazz standards and some instrumental pop tunes. We accepted donations at the door and I believe we made all of $42.
I want to thank our current lineup and past members for the many years sharing their talents for our music , and all performances at our events.
However on this day, special thanks to Jeff Hofmockel, Mike Green and Aaron Valencia . Jeff's deep knowledge of songs and versatility on guitar Michael E Green musicianship on drums and Aaron's smooth jazz style on sax plus such being such a great entertainer were so instrumental in the development and success of our Breezn - San Diego's Variety Band , where we are today.
Thanks guys for the dedication and service to the band and the music community. ... See MoreSee Less
