My copy of ".....& Friends Too" just arrived today. I just have to rave about this disc! If you haven't gotten acquainted with Pedro's solo work, you MUST check it out.

Any of you who have been to Siesta Key Oyster Bar or Gilligan's on Siesta Key, FL know what kind of music Pedro plays. Being the bass player in Great Southern is just one aspect of Pedro's musicality. Pedro plays a variety of stringed instruments and he plays them well. His solo musical style is best described as....Island Music. As you listen to Pedro's music, you can just picture yourself on a beach, the sand between your toes, a drink with one of those paper umbrellas in your hand, sunglasses on, and not a care in the world.

There are lots of cool songs on this disc. I won't do a song by song run down, but a few worthy of mention are the Dickey Betts penned Keep On Rollin' On which features several members of Great Southern and Berry Oakley, Jr. Another surprise and treat for me was a cover of Jimi Hendrix's tune from the Cry of Love album, My Friend. There are some really tasty instrumentals, too, particularly Descarga Arevalo and Christy Leigh. Other tracks on the disc feature performances by Twinkle, "Acoustic Pete" Arevalo, who is Pedro's dad, Jefe Arevalo, who is Pedro's baby brother, Duane Betts, James Varnado, Mike Kach and Frankie Lombardi, all of Great Southern, and Sarasota local favorites, Mike Tozier, Thorson Moore, Keven Alland, Garret Dawson and several others. Jack Kirkner, formerly of Honeytribe, and a current collaborator with Pedro in Los Mosquitos, also makes a few appearances.

Pedro is a musician's musician. He's becoming quite a songwriter, too. He brings joy to me every time I hear him play, and I know if you guys listen to his original stuff, you'll dig it just as much as I do. And be sure to catch him on the Key if you're ever down Sarasota way.

I received a package today from Pedro. I love the new CD! I am a big fan of Pedro's last CD too. I highly recommend picking up a copy of this one. It's very different in a good way. Pedro IS the shizzle

Thanks for the info. I agree Pedro is a show in himself! I have seen him with Honeytribe and Dickey a few times, and he definitely "funks" it up. He is unique and truly a pleasure to see and hear. When I had gotten his autograph, had a chance to small chat and he just seems like a real down to earth guy, too. I've gotta get down to Sarasota..

I totally dig this album...can't get enough of it!
I was wondering if the first Pedro album could be challenged, but this is such a great album & the music totally prevailed.
Pedro is such a wonderful & creative musician who always makes you feel like you're familiar or "at home" when you listen to his music. I love the guy & his spirit and his musical talent to the fullest.
Hard to say you'll ever meet a cooler cat ever. Pedro is the man.

I'm lookin forward to chillin with Pedro & DBGS in Columbus, O-high-O next Friday

Pedro is great and such a wonderful person. It was a pleasure and honor for him to join the Skydogs Band on stage at this past years 'Jam for Duane'. We played music that
touched a lot of folks in that room. Thanks again Pedro...hope we can do it again soon!

My copy came in the mail today, playing it over and over, great album! I love the tune To The Sky, wow, what a song. And the opner, Mi Guaririta, what a great tune to kick it off. Finally found something to make me take Derek's Already Free out of the player. Loading it on the ipod right now.

Thanks to Capn for seneding this to me, the check is in the mail!

I picked this CD up at the show last night. I was going to buy the Great Southern official bootleg CD and then I decided to try something new based on the positive feed back I read here. It's loading to my I tunes now and will listen to it on the commute home. Can't wait for 5PM .

Pedro's bass was smokin last night. So was the entire band. Not as good as the Ridgefield CT show last summer but it could of been that I was beat from a weekend of moving my office, Levon Helm at the beacon, tons of house work and Dickey ending the first set at mid night. Couldn't hang for the second set but Blue Sky, Right to Be Wrong, and Jessica were worth the $ 20.00 alone.

Now time to score a beacon ticket

LUKE, the character in the poster Drummy posted came from the movie Napoleon Dynamite. Hence, Vote For Pedro is an affirmation for Pedro Arevalo. I cast my vote for Pedro on so many fronts, as a musician and as a fine human being. So does Jim King.
