From homeless czar to rock guitar

Today’s column about new chief of county homeless initiatives, Adam Chesire, mentions that he’s in a rock band, Code Blues.

Here they are.

“About the band,” writes Jim Cheshire, Adam Cheshire’s dad, “10 years ago I got together with two of my fellow RN’s working in the ICU at Kaiser in South Sac to play a couple of ICU parties.  Soon, one of the guys dropped out and Adam stepped in. After I retired in 2015, we started playing a few gigs a year at the BrickHouse in Elk Grove to raise money for the Homeless Shelter.

“I know that there are probably multiple bands with a variation on that name, but I didn’t know about the Sac band called Code Blue.  But I’ll bet that there are not very many of them who have actually participated in real code blues like I have.”
