Augie’s shuts down of COVID-19 heartbroken.

I am beyond devastated. After reading the news about Augie’s coffee House. That was my first gig. I feel terrible, for all the employees. For all the people who made it happen. I was there for the “10 year anniversary” I wanted to be there the next 10 years. This virus is unpredictable. It is destroying everyone’s lives.  Augie’s was more than a coffee house. It was a community. Like minded people who have love and passion for coffee and for community. I feel bad for everyone involved. I know this family, I helped with the bar in Claremont, I played my very first gig with Brian in the red brick building in downtown Redlands. I did constant shout outs and marketing to help them. (Just to be nice. As a friend) I am so beyond heartbroken I’m so sorry for everybody. #IamAugie


Augie’s is being evicted from Downtown Redlands. shameful!

Hey Everyone!


  I am making this blog post. because, I am a musician. I also know the owners. of this wonderful coffee shop in Downtown Redlands. such a staple of community and friendliness you won’t get in other places. I had my very first gig there. with my friend Brian. who was also in a band called “The Swiss Alps” he’s a brilliant,fantastic singer and guitar player. I miss him very much. back to the story. we became good friends, because, of Augie’s so. we got to thinking of jamming at Augie’s we did. it was magical. him on guitar and me on keyboard. it was so heartfelt and melodic sound. made such an amazing gig. we made $25 bucks that night! this is an iconic building with so much community. it would be shameful for this to become anything else. this building has brought all walks of life into this building. it’s how excellence is made in this building. Mr Holmes owner started at Augie’s it’s how Augie’s becomes the first and foremost of focus to make excellence in people to have bigger and better careers. some are becoming talented baristas. it starts at Augie’s. to the landlord. if you have a soul. any soul at all. please give them the option to own it. 


thanks, for reading.
