Liz Gherna Opens for The Motels

Liz Gherna opened for The Motels last night at Saint Rocke in Hermosa Beach, CA. The Motels played their hits “Suddenly Last Summer” and “Only the Lonely” and Liz Gherna played her hits “Bossa Nova” and “My Stew Blues.” Both played newer works as well as classics.

Playing with Liz Gherna were Gregory Dean on lead guitar, Mike Yurko on bass guitar, and Lou Hinzo on drums.

Charlie Steffens was on hand for photojournaling the night, but every once in awhile we can capture him with our lens’ too (pictured lower right). Cait Raftery, Karen Preston, John Moura, and Amy Clark Moura (pictured right, top to bottom, left to right) showed up, rocked out, took time after the show with the band, and were all around superstar concert goers. Both photo strips with Liz Gherna too!

Social media was lit up and we love it when our friends and family and fans get the party started before, during and after the event. Thank you so much!
