As ‘they’ say, “I knew him when!”  In 2011, I was touring a small Trade Show in Portland, OR., ORGANICOLOGY, looking for what Organic Good Foods were NEW, HOT, JUST GOTTA HAVE.  There I meet Daryoush Davidi, PhD, Founder of United with Earth Organic Dates.

BELIEVE me, HIS World is DATES!  He is so up with DATES that he proposed to his Wife where … under a Date Tree, OF COURSE!  And you know, it’s really nice to meet someone who’s really jazzed about his business and not just doin’ time until the weekend.

He stood there in front of his sign, with a couple stacks of Organic Good Food Medjool Dates, with two in his hands trying to convince the passers-by just how GOOD his Organic Medjool Dates were.

Typically Medjool Dates are sold in bulk in the produce section next to bananas in unsealed boxes whose lids are ALWAYS open and you wonder who has touched ‘em, and how, just before you.  And the dates crystallize and loose their fresh look and become less than appealing, and customers tend to stay away from this wonderfully nourish FOOD.

Well, Daryoush Davidi’s Dates (I just LOVE that alliteration, don’t you) are presented in sealed 1-pound packages and are THE SWEETEST, PLUMPEST, SOFTEST DATES EVER!  And I know DATES from DATES!

The Change Your Food – Change Your Life!™ Good Food Girls had some FUN with that T-shirt of his, too!


So, six years later … a BIG, BEAUTIFUL BOOTH with STAFF @ THE BIG SHOW, ExpoWEST!!!!


And now of course, Daryoush even has a Conference Table!  I so admire SUCCESS!

They thought they were going to get a lecture …

… but instead, The SEPTIMUS Show comes to ORGANICOLOGY 2017!

1a IMG_9930

Our Band, SEPTIMUS, crushed it and our Organic. Eat me. Campaign was ‘the talk’ of ORGANICOLOGY!



COOL! COLEMAN Bluesman BROWN OF COURSE!  They’re STILL talkin’ about his killer guitar riff on Muddy Waters’ I’m A Man!  To their feet they were! 


JUICES UP  for UNCLE MATT’S® ORGANIC Orange Mango Juice and SEPTIMUS’ BAR HIT, The Mango Tango.



What would be appropriate following The Mango Tango?  Ice-cold Bottles of UNCLE MATT’S® ORGANIC Orange Mango Juice for the crowd, of course!  CHEERS!

And as at any GOOD Rock ‘n’ Roll Show, Change Your Food – Change Your Life!™ Presents GOOD LiViN’, UNCLE MATT’S® ‘I’m on the JUICE’, Organic. Eat me. & CROFTER’S® ORGANIC T-Shirts were tossed to the crowd!  WILD!

Os up in Portland, Baby!

SEPTIMUS CELEBRATES the JOY Organic Good Foods bring to LIFE! 


Lead Singer Frankie B holding high UNCLE MATT’S® Organic Orange Mango Juice!

ORGANICOLOGY is adding a NEW dimension to its great gathering of The Organic Community.  Organic Good Foods are so GOOD they now have a Band that CELEBRATES them in SONG!

Change Your Food – Change Your Life!™, a GOOD HEALTH Edutainment Company, Introduces its ‘Official’ Band, SEPTIMUS to ORGANICOLOGY 2017.

SEPTIMUS is the only Band I know of that can lay down absolute kickin’ covers of Hendrix, Waters, Marley, The Stones, Womack, Tupac, Gap Band Early in the Morning, The Commodores Brick House, Bill Withers Use Me, lots of their own stuff – Reggae Man, Looking for Ulysses, Pea Vine, Forever, Fame, Congressman … along with a Portfolio of Organic Good Food Songs, Songs that CONNECT with the Audience and to WHY they’re gathering at ORGANICOLOGY in the first place … To CELEBRATE Organic Good Foods!  SEPTIMUS represents Family, History, Diversity and Social Justice ALL in ONE PACKAGE … EVERYTHING the ORGANICOLOGY Audience supports and appreciates.


When SEPTIMUS performs Early In The Morning, I can see the Attendees groovin’ & floatin’ to it on the dance floor, writhin’ & grindin’ with their hands above their heads, and then with the staccato of “Get Up, Get Up”, fingers to the sky!!!


SEPTIMUS will take some in the Audience back to their Woodstock Days and then have everyone STANDING at Attention with their hands over their Hearts when they hit the Organic Good Food Anthem, GOOD LiViN’!  

 There’s a Song for Vendors, for Farmers, for Grass-Fed Ranchers, for Eaters, for Truth-Tellers, for Advocates and SONGS, for of course, DANCERS and THE COOL ones!  They can DO IT ALL!



SEPTIMUS puts a WHOLE NEW SPIN on Organic Good Foods!  Change your Food – Change Your Life!™ and SEPTIMUS have taken Organic Good Foods where they’ve never been before … into Pepperoni & Whisky Bars.

And then there’s Frank will knock ya down Brown – Front Stage STAR, Vocals/Keyboard – ALL over the Stage & ROOM! On one song, you just might find him sitting at your table and singing to YOU Forever.

ORGANICS in a Bar?

1a ccBAR

My Good Food Friends –

A recent appearance by The Legendary  Funk/Soul/Blues/R&B/Rock Band, SEPTIMUS, the ‘Official’ Band of Change Your Food – Change Your Life! … having FUN with ORGANIC Good Foods & Juices everywhere they go!

Back by popular demand, SEPTIMUS returned to Capitol Cider www.CapitolCider.com for ANOTHER rockin’  evening!



Capitol Cider’s Showroom has an intimate, Vegas Lounge Show  feel to it.  It’s as though you have your own personal Band playing right to you. GREAT Venue.

More than once, SEPTIMUS brought ‘em to their feet with Lively Up Yourself  (Bob Marley), Early In The Morning  (Gap Band), How Do U Want It  (Tupac) and Coleman Brown, Vocals with a loooooong Guitar riff in I’m a Man  (Muddy Waters), destroyed the place!


Then of course, Frankie B asks, “Anyone here eat Organic Good Foods?”  And just one or two people raised their hand.  “We’re workin’ on a little GIN & JAM  for CROFTER’S® ORGANIC and we’ll be playing The Mango Tango  later tonight, our new Bar HIT!  That’s why you see Bottles of UNCLE MATT’S® Organic Orange Mango Juice up here on Stage WITH US!  Eat Organic, eat good, eat healthy, look good!  OK?  Right!”



And YEAH, they DRINK what they SING!

      IMG_9278c     1a IMG_9281ccc

I saw at least a couple dozen people taking Videos throughout the evening.  So whoever they shared them with, or posted to sites, VIEWERS will SEE those ORANGE Bottles of UNCLE MATT’S® Organic Orange Mango Juice glowing brightly … in EVERY SCENE!

Pouch packages are hugely popular—but they’re not recyclable, meaning they go straight to the landfill. The patent-pending packaging is made from birch and eucalyptus wood pulp, non-GMO corn and non-toxic ink. That’s nice, but so what. HOW do you get the public interested in compostables?

Upon my return to Seattle, I was having Dinner with my Good Food Friends, Kristin & Eric, of CROFTER’S® ORGANIC Fruit Spreads  www.CroftersOrganic.com and I was telling Eric about these new ORGANIC PB&J Snack Sands without the crust  by LUV ME foods that I had discovered at ExpoWEST. Eric said his Wife, coincidently, had eaten some non-organic version of those PB&J’s, the only PB&J snack sans without the crust she could find when she didn’t want to make ‘em herself. Right at the table, Eric texted his Wife http://luvmefoods.co. Her IMMEDIATE text back: “OMG!!!! BEST NEWS OF MY LIFE! MY LIFE IS COMPLETE!!!”

My Good Food Friends –

You should have been @ The North Bend Blues Walk! http://northbendblueswalk.com/blueswalk/

Two of our Friends/Bands were THERE!

Jimmy Holden of the iconic Holden Family, Keyboard & Vocals, RED HOUSE, 6 to 9PM.


The FEATURED Frank will knock ya down Brown and The Legendary  Funk/Soul/BLUES/R&B/Rock Band, SEPTIMUS, closed out the night, 9 to Midnight, with one of the HOTTEST Shows I’ve witnessed. And I’ve seen A LOT of their Shows.

There was a REAL DRINKIN’ CROWD  just waitin’ to be ENTERTAINED.




SEPTIMUS killed ‘em with classic Blues, Rock and their own solid stuff. Right in the middle of their third set, they laid down The Mango Tango. So, Frank is rockin’ out about UNCLE MATT’S® ORGANIC Orange Mango Juice


(we could have SOLD some right then and there!) in a hard-drinking, Rum & Coke®, Whiskey, Beer, Doritos® and Pepperoni Bar!

Brought ‘em to their feet!


I’ve seen it over and over again. You can’t sit still to the beat/rhythm/lyrics of The Mango Tango! We’ve got ourselves a HEALTHY  Bar HIT!




SEPTIMUS  owned North Bend. I kidded Frank after The Show, that now if North Bend is Googled, a picture of SEPTIMUS will come up!

We here at Change Your Food – Change Your Life! believe the Organic GOOD STUFF goes way beyond Carrots, Rutabagas and Granola. LIVE a little, huh!

A couple of weeks earlier, I took in a SEPTIMUS Show just for my own, personal enjoyment. No UNCLE MATT’S® stuff at all and no camera.

Crowded, hard to get between the tables and people. About halfway into their second set, right after Ron Brown comes off a power Hendrix Hey Joe, with some just PERFECT notes along the way from Herman Brown’s Guitar, Frank says, “Let me bring up my Son.” Someone in the Audience immediately yells, “How about The Mango Tango!”   A guy then yells, “YEA! Haven’t heard it for a couple of weeks!” Now, the Audience joins in with wild clapping for the request of The Mango Tango!  BANG, Frank goes right into one of the HOTTEST versions of The Mango Tango I’ve EVER heard. EVERYONE was movin’ to it (you KNOW, you can’t sit still to its BEAT), and in fact, it WAS the evening’s ICE-BREAKER! For the FIRST time that evening, people got up and danced. They just shoved the tables aside, created a dance floor, and from then on, it was Katie bar the door!  No one had even caught their breath, and BOOM, right into a KILLER  BLUES, Muddy Waters’ I’m a Man, Vocals & Guitar (which Coleman can MAKE TALK!) by Coleman L. Brown, Frank with Reggae Man, on to Ron Brown with They Call Me Junior …

And so went the night! THAT’S a SEPTIMUS SHOW!

There were a couple of Chinese Nationals in the Audience, and Frank, while taking The Mango Tango right up over the top, pointed to them and says, “We’re going to take this Mango Tango to China! What do ya think?” And they all nodded yes with big smiles!

Then last week, in a late afternoon Social Media check, Facebook, Twitter, etc. here’s what appeared, with pic, on Facebook by Motown Recording Artist, Herman Brown, Rhythm Guitar, SEPTIMUS. I had nothing planned, and in fact won’t even be there. SEPTIMUS is convinced they have a new Bar/Dance HIT!!!!

Herman Brown: Mango Tango tonight @ Lake Chad Cafe 8pm
