This is my musician friend George Gaytan.


I first met George about eight years ago when my daughter Hannah started taking guitar lessons from George.  Though her interests migrated to dance instead, George has remained my pal.


He showed up with his guitar to play for me while I was recovering from a double mastectomy and tripped on my IV.  I told him he was like the guitarist in Airplane.

We share a sense of humor, a love of old Hollywood, Westerns, and The Beatles.  He played a lot of Beatles tunes for me, in fact, for every chemo session I had during the last round, to the delight of not just me but every patient in the chemo lounge.

So you get that George is a great guy, right?  And now he’s decided to help boost my sister’s Go Fund Me efforts by putting on a benefit concert with his friends — all for me!  I’m amazed and humbled and honored and grateful!  So now we have to call George — Saint George.  Scheduled to play on Sunday September 25 at Turner Street Productions on 8126 Broadway 78209 so far: George, Tish Hinojosa, and Audrey Gaytan.
