Emerson, Just wanted to let you know how far your fan base stretches. From your biggest fan in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
It really has been sixteen years since the two of us met on the wharf. You are still holding up the fort bringing love, joy, happiness, and music to the world Emerson. I cannot imagine how my life would have turned out if you hadn't invited me to play my sax with you. You challenged me to take a hard look at the path I was on and encouraged me to make something of myself. Sahar is a beautiful mix of energy, soul, style, and compliments your strengths. It is fun to see the two of you rocking out in the Bay. Thank you for your kindness and generosity back in the day. You helped make me who I am today. And the memories of playing long days for crowds of people, recording an album, talking about the world, having fun, being friends, are fond and dear to my heart. Thank you for everything Emerson. Thanks for being you. You are a force for good bringing smiles to the faces of the folks you connect with. I miss you old friend, and love the white in your goatee! It gives you a super cool and distinguished look. Miss you and look forward to reconnecting someday soon.
HI Emerson, sometimes you wonder what people who once crossed your way in life are doing today. Thanks to internet you often are able to find out even if you don´t want to join facebook! It´s good to see you well! We really enjoyed your clips on you tube! Do you remember summer 1981 Venice beach and 38th place?Next time we´ll visit my in-laws in L.A. we should come up to S.F. It would be great if my husband and I be lucky and see you perform live! All the best to you and your family! Evelyn Kueck-Townsend, Germany
Hi Hubert, hi Sahar,
it was real pleasure to listen to your cover song "That's how Strong My Love Is", back in November 2008, when I first visited Fisherman's Wharf. Fortunately a made a movie of it on my digicam so that I can listen to both of you whenever I want. But furthermore I like to buy some or all of your CDs. Could you give me an advice, where I can buy then, please.
I'm looking foward to hear from you pretty soon.
Thanks - Love Your Music !
Guenter from Munich, Germany
It was great to see you at the Farmers market in Oakland my brother!! Will be sending you a wedding invite this year. Will see you again soon my friend. You have my contact info on my card. Stay in touch. God Bless you and the Family!!!
I had the pleasure of listening to Hubert and Sarah at Fisherman's Wharf while visiting San Francisco this past week. It was one of the highlights of my trip. Thanks.
Beautiful music. Saw Emerson at the Wharf two nights ago.
Looking forward to hearing about your shows!
If I only knew. I'm the fellow that seems to be following you guys around all year. Various art and wine affairs except the always cold and foggy Half Moon gig or at Friday's Chinatown Farmers Market or even down at the Fishermen's Wharf last week or so. I will miss seeing you guys since I'm heading back over the pond to Hawaii. I will be back in February 2011. So cheers and enjoy the holidays with your love ones. Mele Kalikimaka!! or Merry Xmas! Mahalo, Stan
Saw Hubert and Sahar on Fisherman's Wharf Wednesday night, July 14th. Quite rockin'! The two of you are inspired, but it was Sahar's sweet sax melodies I could hear from afar that drew me in for a closer look. Sorry I was yelling: "Yeahhhh! Whewwww! These guys roooock! Seeeee? There is still some heart left in this world!" (Even though I meant every word!)
We had a great time on Sun 7/4 with you guys...remember me? The guy who took over your organ & was playing like he knew what he was doing? Bought you a Belgian beer? Just wanted to say thanks for a great time & wonderful music!
I saw you guys the past 2 years at Fisherman's Wharf. You guys are awesome! I'm the guy with the hook.
I heard you today in SF at the fishermanswarf. I came from Hungary. It is far away. I love jazz music. I loved your music today. I bought a CD. I would be glad to meet and hear you again. And again. And ... Greetings, love!
I heard your entire show at the Farmers Market in Redwood city as I sold Kettle Corn. You were go good, and everyone was grooving with your music, and everyone commented on how great your voice was and I was dancing the entire time.
It's been a long time since I have heard such great music, I bought your CD, and I listen to it everyday.
I hope to see you guys again at more markets.
Thanks so much for letting me get a chance to hear you.
With my husband, we listen to your music at the Wharf the 14th of May. Our vacation is finished but my husband talk about you to all his friends in Martinique.
We really enjoy what you play.
We'll come back, because we keep a very good memory of this day.
Thanks again for the great memories I brought back to France, when we saw you at the warf in San Francisco!It was fantastic!
Keep it up!!!
Hi Emerson & Family: It's been so long since we've seen you. I know the kids must be growing like crazy!! Anyway, we miss ya. You are doing so wonderful with your music, and I know you are touching alot of peoples lives with the love you put into it. Take care, love Larry & Val - Sacramento, CA. Aunt Chris says hi too!!
Thank you for all your emails update. Looking forward in your performance at the Redwood City Farmers Market.
Your music is awsome. The music with sole like Motown combined with Jazz makes the sound awsome. You need more exposure. Mail ypor music to like Oprah shows etc. Then do relief fundraisers etc. Have a great day
Just landed on your web site and wanted to say Hi! I am also from Belize and live up in Northern Cali as well (Newark) where I have been living since 1978. I will do more follow-up to latch on to your music.
Hello Emerson and Sahar,
We really enjoyed the musice and talking with you all on New Year's Eve! We purchased one of your CD's but the song that I really enjoyed and was looking forward to listening to again was not on the CD. I think the song was titled "Awesome". That is the word that was repeated many times during the lyrics. We really like your music and hope to see and hear you again real soon.
My 20 yr old son and I spent 4 days in San Francisco this past summer when I first saw you and Sahar. Both of you were amazing. I made it a point to return each day during our stay and bought a CD. I have listened to it nearly every day since I came home especially on the days I drive to Cal Poly Pomona for classes. The vocals are so soothing and the saxaphone is magical. The music just puts me in a great positive frame of mind and takes me back to the wonderful time we spent in San Francisco. I can't wait to get up north again and catch another show soon. Your gifts are fantastic.
I decided to get an Ipod so I can listen to you after I get out of the car while walking to classes. Now I'm ordering more CDs so I'll be ready for the start of winter quarter in January. Thank you Emerson and Sahar for making my days more peaceful.
Was the biggest treat at Fisherman's Wharf!
Hubert, an amazing artist with a vocal magic which truly allows the listener to feel the music.
A perfect gentlemen! Not to mention, allowing me to purchase the CD a dollar short, which has now become a priceless possession of mine.
Sahar, flows with such natural rhythm and is a breathtaking presence to view live.
Thank you for providing me with such an awesome addition to my music collection.
Its always a pleasure to see you along with Sahar performing. I want you guys to know that there is a connection to your music and I look forward to seeing and hearing your music soon again. I enjoy taking pictures and creating tile coasters/hangers which I give away. Its my gift for the joy that you bring to us. Thxs again, Stan
Hi Emerson and Johanna,
Just looking at your sight and thinking of the wonderful time we had when you performed at our house. Looking for your calendar of events? Would love to come see you again. Hope all is well with you guys!
You guys are great! I heard you play aweeks ago at the Farmer Market in Oakland and was so impressed. I luv saxophone and Sahar Miller plays a mean sax. I would like to book you guys for Labor Day (September 7th)for 3hours; 3pm - 6pm (that's my money roll). I will come by Farmer's Market this Friday July 31stto hollar at you. There are approximately
75-100 at our Labor Day affair. I checked your calendar and contract

We hope to be back January 2010...I'll let you know...would love to see Johanna and the kids...tell Johanna 'hi' from Texas. :) Keep up the good work and making people happy with your music. terri :)
It's so nice to hear from you. My Wife was tired while I was listening to your New and Remastered Music and she is sleeping like a baby on the couch. It's a nice and comforting felling listening to your music and I am so happy you included us in your e-mail. We miss ya buddy. I wish I could meet you at the pear and listen to you wonderful music like we have in the past but unfortunately I fallen to the economy and was layed off afer 24 years of service in the Semiconductor industry. No problem though. I have worked hard since I was 9yrs old and I am 46 now. I have had a break and I actually traded one of my old tractors for a Harley 1980 Ironehead Motorcyle and just started to enjoy life like I have never done before. I have all my Buddies listening to your awsome Music and explain how I traveled all the time to San Fran and sat with my wife and enjoyed your music and even bought you a cold beer for ya now and then right behind where you play. You are a inspiration to a lot of people and I want you to know all though we can not be there with you now, I will come back some day with my family to visit you. Times are tough but you make it easier on people. Music is a wonderful thing and you have a special Talent and use it to help people. Your the best Buddy. Thanks again for keeping Linda and I on Your mailing list. You made out night. Just like may others. Big Love and take care.
Carmine and Linda Marciano....(She's Sleeping) Thanks to you...........
She needs the rest.......
Hi we met a few years ago and my wife and i are going to be in the San Fran area for Thanksgiving. We were wondering if Mr. Emerson was going to be playing anywhere.
Emerson, my sister and I saw you while visiting San Francisco from Central Wisconsin. I enjoyed what I heard almost immediately and bought two CDs. I totally love them and love your sound. Thanks for the music.
Emerson: I think your great but I just wanted to let you know that it was not by pure accident that I had asked you to play Amazing Grace this summer when my wife and I were on vacation. Whether you believe it or not it was a divine appointment. There are many things that were seeded in your past and now the Holy Spirit wants to set them free. The only thing that is asked of you is to give your heart to the Lord. God bless you and your family.
I can't begin to tell you how much I enjoyed meeting and talking to you and your family this weekend at Heritage Days. As I mentioned to you then, in all the years I have attended the festival I have never attended both days and only returned Sunday to listen to your extraordinary music. You are an amazing artist. Your incredible voice, so full of feeling and emotion, blended with the array of such soulful original songs, makes you truly unique in the world of music today. But by far the most special moment to me was the thoughtfulness you showed to Bianca when we finally had to leave. It will be remembered and treasured forever.
Great sound. I hear you last Saturday in San Francisco at the fishermanswarf.
It is always nice to listen to his songs at the Farmers Market, downtown Redwood City.
When we first heard Emersons music back in the late 90's we were captured by his amazing talent. Every year we return back to San Francisco from the Central Coast to hear him sing. Wow!
Caught some of your show in Burlingame today and really enjoyed it, especially your sax player. I don't see her mentioned on your home page, but would be interested in learning more about her. As a novice sax player, I'm looking for a teacher to take some lessons from and would like to know if she's available. Thanks.
It was a plasure getting your business card while u were leaveing when I saw @ the corner where the Big fishermans warf sign god bless u & I invite u to visit my website
Take care & if u have a Myspace add me!! My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org
write me back!!
When I heard your beautiful music I had to stopand listen...reminded me of Al Green....it sound so good...I bought your c.d. Ball and Chain.
I'd like to get one of the other ones also. I was at the warf, I really enjoyed sitting there listening to you. I also love your sax...she is beautiful. Well im hopeing to contact you if i can find a number for you or by e-mail, I want to go to one of your performances coming up soon. Your baby is beautiful, she is a reflection of who you are...
Im from elk grove ca....I'd like to know if you do home visits for small party's.....thank you your fan....Ramona..
your music is beautiful! You can feel it in your heart, and thats what real music is all "about".
I was fortunate enough to be in San Francisco last week and heard the group. I ate lunch while I listened to them. The music was fantastic and Sahar on sax, well, I fell in love all over again! She is drop dead gorgeous.
Emerson is a fantastically creative musician. I bought two of the albums on offer - 'Ball and Chain' and 'Don't Look Back'.
Beautiful music that I can enjoy for years to come back here in Adelaide, Australia.
Thank you very much.
John C Whelan
Hi everyone, hope to see you soon!!
I heard you recently at Santana Row, I LOVED your sound and bought a CD. I tried to buy more, but the pay by check web contact did not work? I guess I'll just have to go to the next event on your calendar that is nearby and buy them in person. I wanted to give them as Christmas presents. I play Ball and Chain over and over again...wow
HI EVERYONE!!! OH MY GOODNESS, EVE MARIE IS SUCH A "LITTLE LADY" NOW. WE ARE SO VERY HAPPY YOU'RE BACK AT THE WHARF. CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOU AND THE FAMILY.
LOVE, VAL & LARRY
Thanks guys for letting me sit in at the Millbrae Festival !!!
It was a blast.
See ya again !!!
met you a couple of years ago on the wharf,purchased your cd's which you signed for me...my wife and i are planning to return to the city for our wedding aniversary,april of 2008...we will be looking for you...
Emerson you are Barry White all over again, I can't tell you how much I appreciate your giving me your schedule of events. You are one of the most talented musicians I have seen in my life and I have seen a lot of them. Keep up the good work and I will see you as soon as I can.
I always enjoy your emails. I am truely a fan. You were playing on Fishermen Wharf in September of 2004. I was in town to see DMB in concert for a festival in the park. I am in San Diego. When I got to SF I checked into my Wharf Hotel and cruised down to the markets. I didnt make it very far. I heard some music that I adored! I followed the sound and found you ,,alone,,playing. I stood there for 10 minutes untill I finally sat down and listened to you for well over a hour! On your break I spoke with you about your music and wished I had a CD of yours. Lucky me,you had a few CDs left. I bought two. One for me one for my Daughter. You even signed both copies for me!! We both know that CD by heart!! Many of my friends made copys of it also. When in SF we all look ya up so we can visit your shows. Its a must see in SF. We always buy your new CDs you have out. You are now so popular you dont play on the Wharf hardly at all. But we look ya up before we go to SF to see where we can find you!! You have many many fans here in San Diego!! Thank You for always emailing us with up dates! Maybe one day you will play here. This city is all about sweet R&B tunes in the Gas Lamp Quarter . Its a huge well lite place that everyone in SD goes to. The clus there are Jazz..lots of Blues..and major stars play at our 4th and B club. In summer people come from all over to walk and shop and eat and listen to amaaing music. Everyone just parks and walks it all. Its great cus there are no cars driving by this way. All packed with people. Its a summer must do!! I just wanted to Thank You again for signing my CDs and talking to me during your breaks. Next time in SF..I will see ya then.
Janine in San Diego
Emerson you are Barry White reincarnated. I love your music, I live in the bay area and love seeing you every time I visit the City. That "gravel" voice of yours is one of a kind!

Happy New Year!!!
Lots of love from Evonne and Alex.xxxxx.
This is a very superb site. I have cruised the entire site and really love Emerson's songs, especially the songs from his Growiser Album. I also love Its time to Say Goodbye and One More Cup of Coffee from the Don't Look Back album. And what a superb gravelly voice you have Mr. Emerson. These are really songs to help a person to get her groove back. Thank you for making your heart available to not just your family and friends, but to the rest of the world. Keep on singing and making music, and may God bless you and your family.

Hallo mein Name ist Manfred.

I saw Emerson perform at the Fisherman's Wharf around July 20th 2005. I was with a teen tour group ATW visiting the west and Id have to say seeing Emerson play that day was a great San Fran experience. I bought his "Dont look back" CD and enjoy it to this day.
I saw merson and his saxaphonist October 5 in San Fracisco Fisherman's wharf. I loved the music and am sorry I only purchesed 1 CD. I went out and purchased a Teddy Pendergrass CD when Emerson said he sang in Teddy'ss style. I like Emerson better! So soulful!
I live in San Diego. I was in SF last Sept. and saw this man play! I bought a CD and he signed it for me. I LOVE that CD! Thank You!!!!

thank you so much for what you shared that afternoon
...a positive lasting impression to all
My lady Gina and I loved your tunes across from the Fish Grotto in SF last Sunday, 8/20/05. You played one called 'TKO' I believe. It that song available? Will it be on a CD soon? I'm certain the lyrics mirror my current growing relationship. We're enjoying your 'Don't Look Back CD' Sincerely, Matt
Mr. Emerson, I forgot to mention that I visited San Francisco from Washington, D.C. (Maryland). I bought your CD and Bernard's CD and listening them in car. I like to visit your area next time again,then, I hope you do remember us again.
Hi Emerson, still playing Ball & Chain here in southern France and loving it. Will be back in SFO and Tahoe this Xmas and look forward to catching up with you
Fan from the UK, collected all CD's and seen live in San Fran many times (when I lived there!)
Emerson, I'm so glad you were there this year. Listening to your cd's "keep" me right there on that bench at the wharf. Hoping to see you next year. :) Terri from Austin, Texas
Emmerison~ Your voice and your words touched my heart. Thank you
je ne parle pas americain je suis venu recement et au detour d'une rue votre musique m'a accroch
I first saw you at the Wharf in 2002, I think. It is about time you get that new CD out. I have been waiting for two years, can harldy wait to get it. Thanks, love the music.
My family and I visited San Francisco in 1997. My parents heard you sing and play at a local festival in San Anselmo. My dad bought your 'Ball and Chain' cassette and we listened to it non stop untill a few years ago when we moved house and we misplaced it. We are ecstatic to have finally found your website, and to find that your still singing. Keep up your great work.
Best Wishes The Ratcliffe family
Emerson, you have no idea how the last song you played (for me) today
blessed my heart....I had just broken up with someone that I was sure was perfect...well, almost, I need to find someone just like him.......is that how the song went? Let me know how to get the cd - blessings on you!
