Happy Birthday Mattie Mills!

Mattie MillsHappy Birthday to one of the finest entertainers in San Diego, singer Mattie Mills! A long-time member of The Heroes, a local high-energy dance band, Mattie has traveled all over the world with the group, performing for Super Bowls, USO shows, and all sorts of other events! I shot these photos of Mattie last year when The Heroes played at Viejas Casino's DreamCatcher Lounge.

Mattie MillsMattie also has been working lately with bass player Laymon Davis of The Heroes to create a television program called "MusiCuisine," which combines music and cooking. In each episode they feature a musician who demonstrates how to prepare a favorite recipe. "MusiCuisine" currently airs on Time Warner cable, but Mattie and Laymon hope to find a home for it soon on a network!

Speaking of birthdays and The Heroes, two other members of the band have birthdays this month. Guitarist Hank Easton's birthday is May 12 and Laymon's is May 30, so here's an early Happy Birthday to both Hank and LD!
