This just happened

Every year about this time, a neighbor down the block from M.C. Nugget’s beach palace throws an outdoor party.  You may already know this, but we live three blocks from the sand, so I know what you are thinking. You’re envisioning palm tree and cute little Cape-Cod style house-lined streets. I admit, it’s not far from that. We have a pretty great little neighborhood. But before you picture a lush patio landscape with golden-bodied beach babes and guys, let me school you on the REAL beach communities of Southern California. True, there are oodles of golden bodied surfers, sunbathers, and fitness buffs prancing up and down the block, and we love the show. But if you took a stroll down Main Street, you’d see a seriously different landscape.

Jeff Fest – the annual party thrown by, you guessed it, Jeff, who lives in a compound with several women… is the hard-core rock-n-roll party you never experienced.

UNTIL NOW.

 

Laminates

LAMINATES. Because if you don’t have one, you are nobody at Jeff Fest. NOBODY. (A skull shirt might help, but without laminates… shhhh… no one).

The man himself, “JEFF” on the left. You probably can’t see this here, but he has his beard braided with beads. It’s his trademark. His band was actually one of my favorites. They played Red Hot Chile Peppers covers we could sing along to. At a party like “Jeff Fest” one needs to be able to sing along once in a while.

Yep.  This just happened…

One step into Jeff Fest and you are one step closer to meeting a real-live groupie from… I dunno…  Poison, White Snake, Metallica or even Slayer maybe?

But seriously, these musicians became my new fascination. I loved the Christopher Hawley Rollers (last picture), who sounded a little like Jack Johnson, but BETTER. Yes, I said that.

And the Freelance Horn Section accompanied the artists on a few songs…

they rivaled any New Orleans jazz brass…

We love Jeff Fest – for all the quirky people and Metallica shirts roaming around, it is loads of fun and always offers up some great tunes.

Ms. Cheevious is the alter-ego of Lisa Jey Davis (former publicist, and television talent manager, current award-winning writer & author, & health and fitness pro). Though Ms. Cheevious has become known for humor via the blog and social media, offering a lighter and brighter look at life… the blog was originally a precursor to Lisa Jey's long overdue book "Ms. Cheevious in Hollywood" which offers a fabulous, funny peek into what really goes on behind the scenes in Hollywood… a Hollywood with Lisa Jey and her funny “serendipities” in it. Think Lucille Ball meets Chelsea Handler meets the girl next door (with a little chocolate and vodka). It depicts with hilarity the innocent mistakes Lisa Jey made when launched back into the big, bad single jungle, as an unassuming single-mother in the City of Angels. It’s also about the beautiful, interesting life she led while her loving, incredible sons kept her grounded and sane amid fantastic events, new friends, parties and field trips. It also shows the turmoil and heartbreak that comes with dating and single mom life. All blog content © 2015 Ms. Cheevious aka Lisa Jey Davis
