Yesterday meeting with the owners of , Jarred Gallo and Aaron Crites brought back classic memories for me of the past.
Smokey Mountain, then Puma’s and of course, there was The Bodega. My experience was absolute awesome from 1979 to 1984, managing and promoting the heavy-metal rock band TSUNAMI.
The band played at the Bodega many times.
The Bodega was incredible: acts such as Bonnie Riatt, Y&T, Ronnie Montrose, Tommy Johnston from Doobie Brothers, Elvin Bishop, just to name a few, and funny thing, the Bodega was just so simple.
Mainstays and existed then and are still going strong today.
