No, it doesn’t smell like garlic. Not in the springtime, anyway. But our friend Andoni, a life-long Gilroy resident, tells us that the “Garlic Capital of the World” is perfumed like garlic and onions in the weeks after late summer’s harvest, when the surrounding factories process the pungent bulbs. Away from downtown Gilroy, the abandoned shop fronts and the perma-music playing from lamp posts, we set up on stage inside a beautiful little church hidden under a great green drapery of old oak trees. This church, built in the 1930′s, hosts one of the oldest congregations in I-don’t-know where. A lovely lady named Kat informed us that they had been congregating since the 1880s! Churches are usually a pleasure to play, quiet and attentive with great acoustics, and the Gilroy United Methodist Church was no exception. We’re the first of a four-act series of artists who are playing this and next month to benefit the church. In two weeks will be our friend J.J. Schultz. Andoni Bundros, by the way, plays and writes beautiful piano music. Hearing him play in the church, in addition to everything else that day, made this one of my favorite gigs in recent memory!
No shows booked at the moment.
