Mehl & Seiler Play Fallbrook House Concert

Rob MehlI met Rob Mehl on May 22 when we both attended Taylor Harvey's CD release house concert at Cheri Robertson's home in La Mesa. On that day, Rob gave me a copy of his own new CD, "Just Give Me The Keys," and it quickly became one of my favorites! I was lucky enough to get to see Rob play later that month, when Bridget Brigitte made him a last-minute addition to the Bridget's Music Monday showcase she produced on Memorial Day at Humphrey's Backstage Lounge, where I shot this photo of Rob and his one-of-a-kind blue guitar.

Gary SeilerIf you too would like to catch Rob live, you can do that tomorrow, Friday, August 27, when he plays at a 7 p.m. house concert at Danny and Michelle Hatch's Fallbrook home. Opening for Rob will be another of my talented singer/songwriter friends, Gary Seiler (I shot this photo of Gary last month at Sunset Plaza). Rob's special guest will be Barry McGuire, who was famous back in the '60s for the song "Eve of Destruction."

ROB MEHL: Just Give Me The KeysAnd if you haven't yet heard anything from Rob's CD "Just Give Me The Keys," click on this picture of it to listen to clips from the songs. Two of San Diego's finest female singers, my friends Mattie Mills and Eve Selis, did background vocals on the CD, which is part of what makes it so good!
