The Kings of the Parking Lot

Every Sunday I make the effort to ride my bike around various parts of Long Beach. Its only been the last few Sundays that I had happen to come across these local musicians. They jokingly refer to themselves as the, "Kings of the Parking Lot." A fitting name since they happen to make the Junipero Beach parking lot their practice space and home for a few hours every Sunday.

I thoroughly enjoy the time I get to spend with these guys. The music and camaraderie remind me of both myself and the stories that I have heard of my grandpa playing in bands when he was much younger.

They never fail to put a smile on a stranger's face, whether they're there to listen for a song or whether they're just passing by on their bikes or jogging down the path. If you're in the area, I recommend that you stop by for a listen.
