"Music is a conversation between the player and the listener. I like to let the audience, the room, and the tone of the day effect the performance, so we are building something together. That way it's new and different every time."  - Rick Chelew

Mondays with Vincent Randazzo

Vincent Randazzo was a weekly musician at Julia's for eight months in 2016.  He played to our dining room of about 30.  Some regulars compare him to a young Bob Dylan having religiously attended the nights he played.  He has played by request for large parties on occasional weekends in addition to his weekly gig.  Our experience with Vincent has been nothing shy of professional, personal, and excellent.  He has a lot to offer between his charm, personality and expansive repertoire. When we had an opening again in our weekly schedule of five to six musicians we jumped at the chance to have Vincent play again.  With him returning we welcome his character and warmth that we all dearly missed. Whenever he's here we always get our cherished Beatles sing along's with the dining room full and everybody singing. Vincent is truly a talent that adds so much to this place, we consider him a part of the team.

Thursdays with  Rick Chelew

Rick takes a fresh, original, and very musical approach to his material--whether it’s one of his own compositions, a familiar song from Dylan, The Beatles or Motown , or something more obscure from one of his British guitarist/songwriter mentors such as John Martyn, Richard Thompson, John Renbourn or Bert Jansch—Chelew makes it his own, welcoming the listener to hear it in a brand new way.

Rick has been a familiar figure on Central Coast stages for twenty years, playing with Andrea's Fault, The Cachagua Playboys, Nico Georis, Heartstrings, Keith Greeninger, The Hayboys, Northstar, and others.
