Which is your favorite street musician in Santa Cruz?

lt johnMy favorite street performer goes back a few years, when I first moved to Santa Cruz, it's Tom Scribner. And a relative of his was a student in one of the classes I taught maybe 15 years ago.

 Frank Lima [The Great Morgani]. He's just a nice guy, and he's very creative.

lt larryThe Great Morgani would be my favorite. He's been here for so long and he's just so good. People love him and he adds a flavor to the Pacific Avenue shopping area that doesn't exist without him.

lt VnesI like it when the Shady Groove/China Cat crew comes down and plays for the lovely people of Santa Cruz on a Farmers’ Market Wednesday. That is a beautiful, quintessential downtown Santa Cruz music scene.

lt dylanThe Great Morgani, but aside from him the gentleman that plays the hang drum in front of Logos, which reputedly they only made a limited number of first but had to make more to supply increasing demand.

Conga guy
written by Jimm, March 28, 2014
I dig the guy with the conga (sometimes two) who plays one steady beat, eyes clothes, animate face, for long periods, a trance. He plays across the street from the 99 Bottles pub, usually, I think. Nothing beats seeing him, because it's familiar!

Santa Cruz Gives

A look at the organizations we’re asking you to support in our new holiday giving campaign


Gratitude—For Each New Morning With its Light

The full moon of Wednesday brings light to Thanksgiving (Thursday) under the Sagittarius Sun and Mercury. Mercury in Sag offers humanity the message (Mercury) of thankfulness and joy (Jupiter). No other sign represents food, music and joy better than Sagittarius (only Pisces, when not in despair). Beginning on Thanksgiving, we can list what we’re grateful for. Then we can continue the list, creating a daily Gratitude Journal. What we are grateful for always increases in our lives. On Thanksgiving Saturn/Neptune square (challenging) is in full effect. This can manifest as traditions not being honored, disappearing, falling away. It can also create a sense of sadness, confusion, of things not working out as planned. It’s best to be as simple as possible. And to focus on gratitude instead. Gratitude is a service to others. It is scientifically and occultly a releasing agent. Releasing us from the past, allowing our future—the new culture and civilization, the new Aquarian laws and principles, the rising light of Aquarius, the Age of Friendship and Equality—to come forth. Gratitude and goodwill create the “thought-form of solution for humanity and the world’s problems.” The hierarchy lays great emphasis upon expressing gratitude. Gratitude illuminates all that is in darkness. Let us be grateful during this season together. Being, for others, the light that illuminates the darkness. A Poem by R.W. Emerson: We are grateful … “For each new morning with its light/For rest and shelter of the night/For health and food/For love and friends/For everything thy goodness sends.” (poem by R.W. Emerson). I am grateful for my family of readers.
