Hi, my name is Tim East. I played in the 812 Band with Mic and Woody for over twenty years. I sat in at Yellow Pine a few years back too.
I am sorry to say, Mic passed away last week. Woody passed away at Christmas.
They both loved Yellow Pine and found a home there. Music was their lives and the Harmonica Festival was and is a great place for musicians to relax and just play.

Isaac Kim didn't think reading an article on the link between memory, the elderly and music would lead him to front a nonprofit when he was a high-school freshman Music of Bakersfield is a group of volunteers that plays classical music at nursing and retirement homes in Bakersfield. Kim initially started playing solo pieces at Brookdale Senior Living's Memory Care Unit, two years ago, in hopes of helping those with Alzheimer's disease. Shortly after inception, Kim was joined by his younger brother, Ian, now a freshman at Stockdale High School. "It's important to help the elderly," Isaac, a junior at Stockdale High, said. Though there is strong research that ties listening to music to memory recall, his main objective with the group is to ease the feeling of loneliness that can be come with aging and being in a retirement home. Isaac has been playing violin for about 13 years, but finds playing for seniors to be an incredibly rewarding experience. Two years later, Music of Bakersfield is thriving. It has other musicians and other instruments: viola, cello and double bass — with about twenty volunteers of various ages who play at Brookdale Senior Living, Brookdale Memory Care Unit and The Alzheimer's Disease Association of Kern County.
