The second OpenJam will take place Sunday from 3 to 6 p.m. at the Gazebo, near the North Gate. The idea of OpenJam is simple – Murietans who play music can show up and play. It's suggested you bring a chair or blanket, and maybe something cold to drink. For the first OpenJam, held last month, a half-dozen pupils of a local guitar teacher showed up and made music.

Fireworks

The fireworks are spectacular every year. (Click photo for larger images.)

You couldn’t have asked for better weather to celebrate Independence Day in Rancho Murieta. This Fourth of July dialed back the heat to deliver a sunny day with temperatures consistent with a great round on the North Course. It was the perfect day to do a 5K run, have a pancake breakfast, watch a parade, go to a carnival, dance at sunset, and end the evening with fireworks at the front lake. And thousands of residents did just that with friends and family. We have 275 photos, scattered across Rancho Murieta's July 4, to prove it. Read more » Read more » about Another Murieta July 4 is in the books

Huey Lewis tribute

Photo gallery: Faces in the crowd (60 shots)

It was a hot time at Lake Clementia Saturday night as the latest Entertainment, Theatre & Culture concert set the stage for the holiday week coming up. After CalAirShows' red, white and blue “Miss America” plane zoomed by a few times to the delight of the crowd, The Heart of Rock & Roll, a Huey Lewis tribute band, lit up the stage like a Fourth of July firecracker with its namesake song. What followed was a hits-filled evening that included “Do You Believe in Love,” “Heart and Soul,” “The Boys are Back in Town,” music from ‘80s classic movie “Back to the Future,” and a foray onto the dance floor by the group’s Huey Lewis doppelgänger front man during “Stuck With You.” ETC estimated the crowd at about 700. The next ETC concert is July 21, a tribute to country music legends. (Click photo for larger image.) Read more » about ETC brings back the '80s with Huey tribute

Village music

Lew Parkinson and Carol Hyde were cutting a rug at Murieta Village's music potluck Tuesday night. Organizers hired Dennis and Hank, a pianist and tenor saxophonist who play Friday nights at the Ione Hotel, and invited the community to come by for music. More than 60 people showed up, many of them with potluck dishes, and chatted around tables, poured drinks for each other, danced and sang along with songs like "Moon River," "Hello, Dolly," "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" and "Bye Bye Blackbird."
