Hollie Grimaldi-Flores


Hollie Grimaldi Flores was born in Binghamton, New York and raised in a nearby suburb, Vestal. She is the youngest of seven children. In 1985 Hollie moved to California with a degree in radio and television production out of Syracuse, NY. She worked for an award winning video production company, David Watts Productions, in San Francisco and for the writer of a top weekly radio show, Countdown USA in Marin County as well as for KRCB-TV, a public access television station in Rohnert Park, CA before moving to Grass Valley in 1995. After relocating to Nevada County, Hollie worked in a mechanical engineering firm and eventually started her own bookkeeping business before deciding to pursue a return to her first love  broadcasting. Hollie is past president of Soroptimist International of Grass Valley and the Board of Directors of the Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Coalition. Hollie has two children from a previous marriage. Trevor Daniel Wade born in 1990 and Courtney Taylor Wade born in 1994. She is married to Ernie Flores and is sharing the responsibility of raising five boys: Michael, Stephen, Nicholas, Christopher and Timothy aged 26 to 17 as well. When not at the station, Hollie enjoys spending time watching local sports, hiking at the river, reading and attending local events with friends.

Music and Venues – Finally!

For as along as I have lived in Nevada County, I have been looking for an easy way to see who is playing where on any given night. I didn’t want to have to wait for a weekly publication and I didn’t want to have to sort through a myriad of events – from cooking classes to puppet shows – I just want to know WHO is playing WHERE. Alas, I am not alone! One persistent listener and musician, Greg Ludlum, felt the same way and with a gentle push and a couple of shoves, finally got me to get into gear. We are proud to launch Music and Venues.

In its infancy, it is simple. A calendar you can look at by week or month. Each day lists the name of the artist and when you click on the artist, you can see where they are playing and generally speaking, what time.

In the future, we hope to sort by venue but for now – it is the information you need to make a plan. What are your choices for tonight or next week – just click on Music and Venues. If you own a venue or are a musician, and would like to be listed, send an email to musicandvenues@knco.com

Now isn’t that exciting?! I think it is – and so does Greg.

Wow! As a concert promoter, this has been on the top of my mind for several months. I assume as promoters we can submit an event?

Thanks so much.

Greg Ludlum

Yes, I love it. Thank you to Tom and Hollie, for accepting the push when others would not. I attend as many "venues" as possible and this allows some planning for a busy schedule. The business owners and musicians will ultimately make this community offering a success. It truly does benefit all, it helps get people there. More folks to play to, more purchases for the venues and more tips for the artists. Many artists in this community, will give of themselves for you, for hours for tips alone. So generously show your appreciation.

Thank you,
Greg Ludlum
