What he does behind the scenes to create magic is simply amazing! It was truly a pleasure watching him in action exceeding the expectations of the ultimate DIVA ~ MISS ROSS
I had the pleasure of working with Rick at Wells Fargo Center for the Arts. He's professional, fun and knows how to treat an artist! He also understands the finer points of working for a non-profit, marketing and balancing it all with the cost of big name celebrities. Congratulations to the Green Music Center--they are lucky to have Rick!
Looking forward to many nights of great programming at GMC and SSU. Rick is a world-class programmer/booker/marketer whose presence is Sonoma County has been missed since WFC decided they didn't need him. It is wonderful that Rick will now have a world-class facility to present world-class talent at.
Rick has an extraordinary talent and attention to detail. His passion for the work he does shows in every single act he books and manages. I worked with Rick for 6 years at the Wells Fargo Center, and I know first hand how exceptional his work is. Rick will excel at the Green Music Center. Congratulations Rick!
Congratulations to Rick, and to the Green Music Center for acquiring this rare gem. Rick's professionalism, dedication, creativity and talent for choosing the right artist for the right venue are insurmountable. I have known Rick for 29 years, he is one of the most giving people I have ever met, truly an inspiration. His work ethic, knowledge of the business and passion for his work aer extraordinary. Without a doubt, the most memorable concerts I have experienced have been Rick's. I am looking forward to many more thanks to him. Bravo!
Congratulations Rick and to the GMC. What a great move for both. I have had the pleasure of working with Rick for over 5 years and love his style. He is dynamic at what he does. His attention to detail is second to none and in the Entertainment Industry it is a necessity. I am excited to see what entertainers come through. Kudos to Rick and great choice for the GMC.
As a person of mixed heretige, white and native american, I can identify with your intervussies.I was raised to be an all white kid, even though I was kinda "Tan".I always believed I was different.I am now 57, and have finaly realized a commitment to mother earth,as my native american people always have. Having to choose between different cultures, espessialy these days, can mess a person up.
I've known Rick for years and seen him work events. He's level-headed and works well under pressure. One can tell he loves what he does because he's impassioned, and shows consistency and drive.
Wow!! Rick at the GMC! Very good move! Rick has a strong, proven track record of attracting mainstream talent and working with them on numerous occasions. He has such a unique way of connecting the performer with their audience, while providing a very detailed but relaxed environment. Being part of Green Music Center is a win-win!!
Rick brings true professionalism to any position he holds--this is great for the Green Music Center and Sonoma County! He treats the artists, the audience and the venue with equal respect.
Wow, the Green Music Center (and Sonoma County) is very fortunate, indeed. His shows are always big hits and some of my favorite comedians and musical artists have performed in the area thanks to Mr. Bartalini; Lisa Lampanelli, Bill Maher, Kevin James, Diana Ross, Josh Groban, Dolly Parton, Olivia Newton-John, Wynonna Judd, Johnny Mathis, Bonnie Raitt, and so many more (can’t remember them all). The folks at Sonoma State should be thrilled to have his kind of dedication to sell-out shows and artists’ satisfaction. Best wishes for many more years of awesome shows to come.
Kudos Green Music Center for hiring such an extraordinary talent in Rick Bartalini! He was pivotal in putting LBC (Wells Fargo Center) on the map in securing sought after acts, mostly because no one handles A list like Bartalini. From both the artist and fan perspective, each show he produces is professional, well executed and memorable. He doesn't miss a detail and i know i speak for a large percentage when i say - well played Green Music Center...well played!
The Green Music Center has made quite the catch with Rick Bartalini! I have had the pleasure of working with him, and he will bring nothing but success and happy patrons to the Green Music Center.
No one can put together a show like Rick. His shows are always a memorable experience for both the fans and the artist. Very excited for what's to come from his new shows and Green Music Center!
Rick is a world-class producer! Look for more wonderful shows at the Green Music Center.
Pretty well balanced article. But I don't believe there's a need to "finesse" the labelling so as not to turn away customers. If the words "contains GMO ingredients" scare people, it's because the industry has not done a good enough job educating the public on how "safe" and "beneficial" and "necessary" GMO crops are...if they want us to believe, they need to stop trying to trick us and bully us and actually do the necessary studies, have the necessary conversations, and tread lightly...this is public health we're talking about...and what's with their hurry and secrecy, so that their executives can make more money? Please...whether or not there's any basis to all the GMO fears, nobody has done a good job communicating with the public about them, and that alone is cause for concern...

Yes 'Contains ingredients engineered to reduce pesticide use" is inaccurate.
Pesticide/Herbicide use has skyrocketed along with GMO crop acreage.
"Contains ingredients engineered to increase farm sustainability," is also inaccurate. Farm sustainability is not increased by monoculture chemical agriculture. Soil becomes depleted of bacteria needed to break down minerals. Glyphosate chelates or binds minerals and makes these minerals unavailable to the growing plant and the growing body of our children.
"Contains GE corn, GE soy, GE soy, GE canola, GE beet sugar, GE cottonseed oil, GE papaya, GE zucchini" is the label that consumers are asking for.
This labeling needs to include alterations in the order of the gene sequences along with insertion of genes from bacteria and viri. We have a right to know what we eat.
And it needs to include milk from cows injected with bovine growth hormone. American baby formula is all bGH, unless organic. Adults have eliminated bGH pretty much, but American moms deserve the fundamental freedom to choose their infant formula and baby food as mothers in 64 other countries already do.
The market will determine the value of GMOs. Already nonGMO markets are booming, and more and more acreage will be planted to meet this demand. It is a good thing to support farmers who wish to reduce herbicide exposure to their families and workers, by using traditional rotational cropping and traditional soil preservation methods.
"Contains ingredients engineered to reduce pesticide use" or "Contains ingredients engineered to increase farm sustainability." This only proves that you can say the same thing in two very different ways, meaning, something positive might appear negative and viceversa. In my opinion, labeling in this manner is not the answer. "Contains GMO ingredients" or "GMO-free" should be enough. People then will have a choice to research it more or stick to one buyign option, instead of being manipulated with one kind of label.
"Peri Park in Fairfax is close to Three Twins Ice Cream" Um no. Sorry but if you are at Peri and want ice cream you go to the Scoop. There is no Three Twins in Fairfax, only the famous Fairfax Scoop!
