The artist formerly known as Amber Estrada shows and news :)

Hello friends!

A lot has happened since my last email to you. After six years of making beautiful music together on and off stage, guitarist Aaron Snider and I were officially married on May 2nd. It was a beautiful wedding near Redding that started out as an outdoor wedding but the rain had other plans for us. We ended up having 120 of our close friends and family surrounding us in my parent's living room like a big hug. It couldn't have been any better!

Well, I have legally taken the name Amber Snider and I will not be using the name Amber Estrada any more. Nor will I be using the name "Amber Lynn" as I stated in my previous email (though it actually is my name and I like it). A few people emailed me and informed me of an adult film star with that very same name. I do not want there to be ANY confusion especially when my little nieces and nephews google their favorite auntie's name :) Eeeeeeeeeeek!

Quoted by Juliet from Shakespeare's play Romeo and Juliet:
"What's in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet."

Translation: It's all about the music anyway.....

Alas, our new recordings will be released under "Mom's Chicken Pot Pie" which is our new band name. We are working hard on recording the songs we have been playing at our shows.

Speaking of shows, please check out my show calendar below.

This Friday, July 3, 5-8pm at Silo's Music Bar please join me in Downtown Napa for a "Solo at Silo's" show and say hi. Silo's is a great new music/wine bar and the owners are really amazing people! $5 cover.
