I finally made it to one of the concerts at Bowers Harbor Park on Friday night. All the musicians are fantastic, but I hit the jackpot because pianist Jeff Haas and mandolin player Don Julin showed up with their “Big Fun Band.”

And it really was a blast. There were probably a couple of hundred people there of all ages, and the music, of course, was amazing.

Plus, I scored a major photo coup with Marty and Anita Klein’s adorable dog Sophie for our 2020 Dogs of Old Mission Peninsula calendar. Stay tuned for that over at our sister site, OMPstore.com.

I wrote about the Bowers Harbor Concert Series here, including what it’s all about, and there’s one more coming up next Friday, featuring Tracy Bonham.

As a side note, look for a story in Old Mission Gazette this week about the infamous “Bowers Harbor Fracas” that took place in the 1970s. The cops showed up. People went to jail. Turmoil ensued.

Thankfully, that didn’t happen on Friday.
