Bee Love the album coming Spring 2022!

 

.

Bee Love is a labor of LOVE that we have been working on since last May recording in Sacramento, California at Moon Studios with the legendary recording engineer and  arranger David Houston. This album is unlike the other two in that it has a LOT of instrumentation on it–Acoustic and Electric guitar (Sacramento acclaimed guitarist Steve McLane), Drums, Percussion and Bass (Fred Nelson Jr. Oleander fame) ,Cello (Allison), Strings, Saxophone, Harmonies (Laura McClane) and more! Fred Nelson Jr, my drummer for the last 7 years and musical partner and soulmate artfully arranged all of the songs along with David Houston. Every song is ALIVE and SENTIMENTAL, TOE TAPPING AND BODY MOVING! It is PROGRESSIVE FOLK MUSIC/SOULFUL FOLK/ADULT CONTEMPORARY. A few of the tracks are simply folk music and others are rock or jazz based. BEE LOVE is the title track as I have learned since moving to Mount Shasta in 2020 that to BEE LOVE is to live in FREEDOM, JOY AND GRATITUDE. These are trying and still beautiful times of amazing change and we MUST LOVE EACH OTHER!  I am so excited to release this album this Spring of 2022 on VINYL, CD AND OVER 150 DIGITAL MEDIA PLATFORMS, You Tube and more!  Also available is the BEE LOVE MERCHANDISE and Bee Love and Place Called Humanity and The River CDs on my website and at shows.  I will have an upcoming series of ALBUM RELEASE CONCERTS at venues that allows all persons whether vaccinated or unvaccinated to attend with or without masks. This is my third album and certainly not the last! We will keep recording at least once a month with David Houston until another album is completed. My focus is songs that are about LOVE AND HEALING AND LAUGHTER! Now that I have all the free time in the world to write and make music, that is what i intend to do!  My family comes first and then the music. Thank you to James Israel for maintaining this site.  Thanks for listening!! Blessed Be! Today is my birthday too! Yay!

Music is Life! Love and Light! Jenn

Celebration of Life for my father, Michel Rogar

This Friday August 20th, 2021 we are finally able to have a CELEBRATION OF LIFE event for my father Michel Rogar from 4-8 pm at the Tahoe Club in Auburn, CA. Below are excerpts of my dad speaking in interviews I did with him beginning in 2015 about his life. This winter when it’s cold outside and there is a lot of snow here in Mount Shasta, I will be writing my father’s story in a book. I took some time since his peaceful passing from this world on December 15th, 2019 to reflect and grieve and I was not ready to hear his voice, Now I am. I hope you enjoy these audio clips. Listen to one or all four. There are more that I will eventually upload so that you can hear his voice whenever you wish. I hope all is well with you, his framily (friends and family). Many blessings, Love and Light! Jennifer Rogar

Well hello!

Hello friends and family !
I have not written in over a year . I took some time off after the passing of my father on December 15th, 2019. My father was the best father any girl could have and I will miss him dearly. He left this world peacefully in his sleep with a smile on his face and as if in the midst of a dream . My beautiful mother passed away in 2008. My brother and I now hold on to each other as only siblings can do when they become children without parents to guide them .
I retired from my teaching job in Sacramento after teaching for 25 years and I moved to my favorite mountain Mount Shasta, California. I purchased a beautiful home on a half acre. I spent the year here mostly at home , walking the mountain with my son and daughter and dog Paris, a rescued German Shepard. My children also left Sacramento and moved up here with me because of the pandemic. We all are healing because it is a healing place and the mountain has spiritual power.
This past summer was also a frightening time living in a place surrounded by fires and the mountain was closed down for the second half  of the summer and not accessible. I was able to sing once a week for awhile in the local Shasta Inn and it kept me going . Then it shut down and now it has opened up again. I am very grateful to have a place to express and connect with people.
I discovered over the past year that I am not suited to living in a small town and in fact miss the vitality and diversity of the city. I live and love to sing ! I always have wanted to be an actress. My son aspires to become a professional actor and in fact was in New York City pursuing his dream when the pandemic hit .
Last winter Johnny and I took a trip to Los Angeles to look into relocating there to pursue our artistic skills. Then on January 22, 2020 Johnny was in a serious car accident when his car hit black ice and slammed head on into a tree. Johnny suffered a broken leg and ribs . He is lucky to be alive. I don’t know what I would do if I had lost my son. He is recovering now well now after a successful surgery  to put his leg back together and much physical therapy. Johnny said to me one night,  “Mom, I think you would really like New York.” I didn’t sleep well that night as my I thought it over. Then , when I woke up I made up my mind . There was only one place to go where you don’t need a car and can pursue your artistic dreams. New York!
We are patiently waiting to hear about an apartment in Brooklyn, New York. Fingers crossed! My parents are assisting me and my son in a 
dream soon to come true as soon as everything opens up again: to sing and act in New York City and Brooklyn of course! I will help my son pursue a dream that I had as a young girl but was told by my parents they would not pay for I because it was not practical. No regrets! I loved being a teacher and loved being around wonderful young people, my students. Yet I always told my students to do what you love in life !  Here’s to doing what you love in life and that is success!

Solfeggio Frequencies/Binaural beats for the healing of all of us

Solfeggio Frequencies
Hello friends and family and all my fellow human beings,

I have a wonderful show this Saturday night May 25th, 2019 at Luna’s cafe with David Houston and String Theory closing the night as he always does every last Saturday of the month. David’s shows begin at 8pm and he has two acts accompanying him.  I will be performing second with Terry Allwein on guitar. Terry’s amazing!! His sound is so relaxed and easy and he sings harmonies with me too! Vinnie Guidera opens the show. I hope you can come because you will hear some awesome frequencies in David’s music with his quinet of strings (cello, violins, viola, bass, guitar) and drums. Davids voice is warm and his lyrics clever and catchy and heartfelt. His music will transport you to joy and bliss. I am choosing very relaxing songs myself and I am moving toward an even more relaxing sound with my new CD that I am joyfully working on with David who produced my last two CD’s. I intend to weave these Solfeggio Frequencies into my music on the upcoming CD.

I am delighted to share with you these Solfeggio frequencies that I have been listening to for quite some time as I work in my office each day. This music helps me to be calm, feel relaxed, rejuvenated and refreshed. I decided recently to share it with my students and make an assignment out of it to help them with their stress and anxiety which has become all too common in recent years. It dawned on me recently that we are inundated with far too many unwelcome frequencies from our cell phone towers, computers, electrical wires etc. and perhaps if you are a conspiracy theorist at some level (I would say the right word is reasonably cautious) we could even be getting subliminal messages from frequencies that are inaudible but nonetheless harmful. Why all the anger, anxiety, mental illness, depression? Could it be the frequencies, the food we eat, the lack of access to nature that is free from artificial frequencies? Here is the information that I gathered.

What to do:

Google: (the specific Hz ie. 741Hz or 432Hz , binaural beats, solfeggio frequencies)

Listen for 20 minutes to 1 hour a day or per session. Only listen to what you like. Give it about 1 or 2 minutes. If you do not like it, try another until you find one you like. While listening you can meditate (Google meditation techniques or go to You Tube if you do not know how.to meditate. There is no wrong way to meditate), do classwork, draw, color or simple close eyes. You can also walk in a park with trees (State Capitol Park, Land Park, McKinley Park, Tahoe Park or your neighborhood park). If you have a car you can go to the American River Confulence in Auburn or the Yuba River in Grass Valley/Nevada City or Consumes River. The Sacramento River in some places may be good to have a quiet and relaxing experience.

If you like you can write down your thoughts in a journal later describing how the music made you feel, any emotions or thoughts or images that it stirred. Write a paragraph or as much as you need to write.

True story: I was up in Mount Shasta about five years ago at a Crystal store that sold crystal healing bowls, crystals and jewelry. The owner, Beverly, upon request, will give a crystal bowl healing concert in the back room for a small donation. I sat on a large beautiful pillow among a lot of pillows and a least 100 bowls. Beverly arranged the bowls in a pattern around her because the bowls talked to her. She began the concert and we either closed our eyes or listened to her as she described each bowl she was playing. The sound of the bowl was amazing and soothing beyond belief and when she got to the broken crystal bowl with garnet that had healed itself I began to feel emotional. When she added the sound of a bowl that aliens had given her I began to cry. She gave me a tissue. For more about crystal bowl healing you can go to You Tube and also to the crystal shop with the large Crystals and listen to Beverly play the bowls.

The healing sounds of solfeggio frequencies, or chimes, bowls (metal or crystal), wood flutes, drums can stir emotions and help you release what you need to let go or help you obtain what you need to absorb.

Music IS MEANT TO BE HEALING and joyous and only you know if it is good for you by the way it makes you feel. If the “music” makes you feel anxious or angry or agitated then stop listening to it and choose music that makes you feel positive and relaxed.

Namaste

Blessed Be

Blessings

Peace be still

Be Present

Yes, I am a Sammie Award nominee!

It is nice to be acknowledged by the music industry folks in Sacramento and it is nice for Sacramento News and Review magazine to create these awards and host a concert each year. If you would like to vote for me for best Singer-Songwriter you can go to this link: https://go.newsreview.com/sammies/ Here is the song that I attached. You can listen to it here. I chose this song because of the beautiful harmonies of Sandra Delores, and the beautiful instrumentation by Mike Farrell on electric guitar and bass and Eric Everett on drums. I love Mount Shasta and I hope by featuring this song it will inspire you to go visit Her. Again, it is nice to just be nominated and to those who did, thank you!! And thank you to all who support my music by coming to the shows, or buying CD’s and going to our wonderful venues in Sacramento. I am venturing out this year to play more of California and have a third CD/Album in the works that I hope to have out in stores, online and at shows by June.

Peace, Jenn

 

How we can help the homeless

Hello Everyone!! Happy Halloween, Samhain, Dia De los Muertos and Thanksgiving! I love the coming Fall season with the brown gold leaves falling and the nights getting cooler and the skies a bit cloudy. The Fall season has always felt like the beginning of the year for me. It is also the beginning of the year in a dangerous way for those who are homeless or unhoused in Sacramento and elsewhere and I urge you to collect gently used hats, sweaters, coats, scarves, blankets and socks that you have in your closet or that you can purchase at a local thrift store and donate directly to the homeless by going to Cesar Chavez Park on Sundays from 8-10 am and finding CAFFE (Clothing and Food For Everyone) along 9th Street and Armando will be happy to take these items off your hands. Or you can go to the Community Dinner Project on Tuesdays at 430pm in front of City Hall along 9th Street. You are more than welcome to cook or donate food and provide if at all possible organic food to serve to our guests.  We also need The Community to donate their time and attend or speak at the city council meetings on a regular basis on matters that matter to you and all of us! It’s your city! A few week backs I brought my guitar and sang (and spoke) to them singing a take from Pete Seeger’s Where Have All The Flowers Gone ..“Where Have all the benches gone/bathrooms/shelters etc. “Gone to Developers everyone!” You can watch it on the city council meetings archives.  Come see how they act, talk, leave and generally treat local activists and speakers who get up to speak. A whole lotta gaslightin’ goin’ on by your mayor! Public comment period moved to the end again..shame! Hurts the elderly who have time to be involved. On November 30th the City Council will vote to approve or disapprove the $20 million allocated to the city/county for homeless emergency housing! I will be there with guitar in hand once again! Another homeless activist group led by Sister Libby Fernandez would love to take those warm winter clothes off your hands. You can reach out to Sister Libby Fernandez and the Mercy Pedalers. She and her group go out on bicycles and deliver much needed supplies to the homeless downtown. There is a sister group in the Arden area.·

It is beginning to get cooler in the mornings in Sacramento. #Mercypedalersare in need of hats, gloves, scarves and blankets for those who are waking up cold in the mornings living on the streets!
call me at 916-879-5581 or email me at Lfernandez@mercywmw.org

I have a Facebook page I created awhile back called Friends of the Homeless in Sacramento that you can join and submit any information that will help the homeless and also if you know someone who is homeless and has a phone and/or access to a computer in a library they can also join and find out where to get help or just connect and know that we care and are trying to help end homelessness. There is also the Community Dinner Project on Facebook and CAFFE. There is also a Facebook page for Sacramento Safe Space for Unhomed Youth administered and vigorously attended to by Kimberly Church.

Here’s my music schedule for November!! Hope you all can make one or all of the shows!

Mother’s Heart (Jessica’s song) Upcoming CD 2018 “Gratitude”

My daughter Jessica came back to Sacramento from San Diego after eight years away from home. Jessica graduated from high school and at the young age of eighteen moved to the far end of California. I missed her and I wrote this song coaxing her to come back home because I knew it would be better for her to be here with her family where there is loving support as a young person navigates their way through their youth. San Diego is a beautiful town, but it is a town that can lead one towards misdirection. I am so happy that my song worked! I believe in the power of positive thinking! I will be recording this song soon on an upcoming 2018 CD called “Gratitude” in honor of having my baby girl back home. I will be performing this song often. I feel such joy when I sing it! This song is dedicated to all mothers who love their children enough to let them go and be their own person, let them discover themselves while at the same time praying that the guardian angels and spirit guides are there to pick them up when they have fallen or are misguided. Ah I remember my twenties! I love my daughter Jessica more than life itself.–Blessed Be!

Mother’s Heart (A song for Jessica)

Loving you with a mother’s heart
Love so true when you’re in my arms
Life began the day you were born
Come on home honey where the fire is warm

And the day that you left for the seaport town
I felt a part of me so proud so torn
I missed your laughter ooh I missed your smile
Gotta come home now baby won’t you stay awhile?
Gotta stay and try

Loving you with a mother’s heart
Love so true when you’re in my arms
Life began the day you were born
Come on home honey where the fire is warm

Seems like yesterday since she went away
Five long years has gone why did you stay?
Just a girl became a woman just like me
You had to get away just to learn to breathe
Just to set yourself free

And it ain’t easy growing up in this world
I just know one thing I got back my babygirl

Loving you with a mother’s heart
Love so true when you’re in my arms
Life began the day you were born
Come on home honey where the fire is warm
