Don't Keep Me Hangin
Band O Loko
"Don't Keep Me Hangin" Kevin Held on Keys Vocals and song - Rod Hans on Guitar - Monica Petruzzelli on Vocals and Acoustic Guitar, Tim Bonow on Drums. Produced by all for Band O Loko. Album Artwork by Gale Schnurman. Its a good ride for a good time.
"Don't Keep Me Hangin" is your classic country tune....except the dog didn't die and your truck still works. As for the girl, the "one" may have finally come through, how many left you in suspense? How many left you "Hangin".....and yes ladies, it works both ways. Enjoy this country flavored tune about being let down, knowing deep down inside, you are number one and you are a winner.

Ride of the Day
Band O Loko
Life is a roller coaster of ups and downs, especially "The Ride Of The Day", a happy melody dealing with life's day to day challenges. One second your'e on top of the world, then you find yourself at wits ends...dust yourself off and try it again.
"The Ride Of The Day" is an earlier musical adventure from Kevin Held. This recording features Rod Hans on Guitars - back up vocals - recording and mixing, Sam Kaplan Good on Drums, and Kevin on Keyboards covering Bass, Accordion, Lead Vocal and more.
Its a song of hope for a better life while dealing with the challenges that life throws in our direction. Our days are full of high points and low points, some stronger than others and at times, for whatever reason, many of us choose to accept it and get back on the ride to see what's ahead. At one moment a person may feel like they are on top of the world, while the next, a particular circumstance may bring the world crashing on our shoulders. I am hopeful not to be unique on this feeling, while I hope the listener can appreciate the idea....its a still a good ride............

Don's Neighbors Back in the Day
It's Never Too Late when you have some excellent music recordings with your pals in 2001...Its no Space Oddessy... just excellent music for you now in 2019 - From Back In The Day
With the turn of the century, 4 friends got together and created some excellent music under the band name of Don's Neighbors. Keyboard singer Kevin Held, lived next to Don, and his wife Virginia. A highlight of thier lives became having a rock band move in next door, shaking pictures off the wall, cuasing hell and havoc, and Don, firing back with his cap guns and cheap ciggarettes.
With the idea of wanting to give back to life, the best name that came to light at the time was Don's Neighbors. Thank You Don...I love the photo of you on Ukelele next to the 65 Chrysler New Yorker.
since 2001, the neighbors have gone different ways but the music recorded lives on. The time has come to do what I can in order to incapsulate this awesome music in time and share it with you today in 2019.
Please enjoy these fine recording captured by Bill Bently in Concord, Ca....featuring Kevin Held on Keys and Vocals, John Michael Benevidez on Bass and Vocals, Rick Olson on Guitars and Vocals, and beat keeper extriodinare Rick Cabral on Drums.
Peace and Love to All....please share what we have created...
