    I remember the very first Mosquito Serenade at ARP. A friend of mine’s local band performed on a 6 inch high riser. Sure has changed since then.

      Wow, Bruce, that’s awesome! I wonder if anyone out there has a photo of the first one?

      My first one was a few months after moving here in ’94, and Tom Ball and Kenny Sultan, an acoustic blues duo, were the performers. It was funny because for about twelve years, I would often ride my motorcycle up to a place in the mountains above Santa Barbara, Cold Springs Tavern. (Cool place–originally a stage coach stop.) Tom and Kenny played there on Sundays regularly, and it sure was fun to see them here in the north state.

      I went up to shake hands with them after the show, and I jokingly accused them of stalking me. Tom said, “Dude, we’re touring musicians. We can’t afford to be stalkers.”
