*The Mother Hips & Jay Blakesberg announce ‘NOW WE GIVE IT TO YOU’
Two great tastes that go great together! My affinity for both The Mother Hips AND Jay Blakesberg is unparalleled. Jay brought me to my first Hips show in 2006, for their Holiday Shows at the Great American Music Hall. Its been more than amazing to become entrenched with this quintessential California quad’ & all its ancillaries. A total honor & I have honestly made best friends in the process. We will celebrate on June 17 in San Francisco!
