The Breedloves are Jay Kirkland on lead guitar & Barbara Gorin on 12 string & vocals. Jay has been playing guitar since he was a child, and is an avid song writer, and able to play all styles. of music, from jazz to blues, to metal to fusion. Barbara has been strumming the guitar since she was young as well and has a particular love for playing the 12 string. Together, they have a musical chemistry you will love. Both Jay and Barbara are involved with a wonderful children’s music charity, Guitars Not Guns, particularly the Contra Costa County, California Chapter. Jay is an instructor and sees the joy he can bring to kids through the gift of music. He learned early on how music saved him from destructive behaviors, and believes strongly in what Guitars not Guns stands for.


Mary Louaine Elliot, also known as the Rockin Flute is seen here with Johnny Ramos on Guitar. And, all in all it was a great evening of music at Todos Santo Park in Sunny Concord California.
