Column: It was ‘Idol’ finalist, crew, Ben Harper and one columnist

Prior to Alejandro Aranda’s Pomona activities, he stopped in Claremont at the Folk Music Center. And (intoning gravely) I was there. This fly on the wall saw the “American Idol” finalist reunite with store owner/musician Ben Harper, tour the store, talk and jam, with the store staff and the TV crew the only witnesses. Get the inside scoop in Sunday’s column. And yes, I know I’ve written three straight columns on Aranda. Don’t worry, Sunday will be something different. After that I’m on vacation so you’ll get a break from both of us.

    It was fitting that you were invited into the store. The pictures and recap of your experiences from the Claremont Folk Art Center to the Pomona Fox on the big day were enjoyable.

    Now, it is Sunday, May 19, 2019, 8:00 p.m. Pardon me while It take a few minutes to cry. Three hours it took to shoot me down!!!!!

    They were all incredible talents. It would be good if Alejandro could eventually appear at the new “Canyon” in Montclair, or the Lewis Playhouse. I envision him playing at a lounge in the biggest hotel in Vegas.

    Have a good vacation. I am sure your parents are excited.

      Thank you, Shirley. And Alejandro has just been announced to perform July 17 at Pomona’s Glass House.
