‎”I think music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.”

Spring music in the Bay Area!

“If I can’t dance, I don’t want to be in your revolution” (Emma Goldman, Anarchist)

For me, singing sad songs often has a way of healing a situation. It gets the hurt out in the open into the light, out of the darkness.
(Reba McEntire)

This event started as a quiet time at the beach cooking crab with a few friends and has grown into a wonderful social weekend with many friends, delectable food, fun and games. The CrabFest continues to be a Ladies day out at the beach meeting and greeting beautiful women, enjoying the open air at the beach, ending with a warm bon fire and after party. It’s just that simple!! Many have made a weekend of it and enjoy other events in the Santa Cruz area including church services at Innerlight Ministries with Rev. Debra Johnson and or Gay Pride in Santa Cruz. This is now our 10th year. My, my, my….how time flies.
