Fareed Hague & Goran Ivanovic
Guitar Duo
7:30pm Concert

 



A Guitar Duo
Like No Other

Thu. Jan. 18 at 7:30pm

Advanced online ticket sales are $20
$20 at the door | Seated |<21 w/parent

Fareed Hague & Goran Ivanovic Guitar Duo: Inspired by the rhythms and melodies of flamenco, jazz, classical, rock and the Balkan region, this performance features the unrivaled guitar artistry of two of the finest players of their respective generations. Their music is carefully balanced between blazing virtuosity and sheer beauty. Goran Ivanovic and Fareed Haque recorded two CDs together, Macedonian Blues and 7 Boats, to great critical acclaim, even getting the nod as top best acoustic guitar albums 2004 from acoustic guitar magazine.

Both have both been so busy that they have not been able to play again together for years. “Ivanovic and Haque sound like committed internationalists. Their disc's liner notes emphasize the duo's mixed background -- Ivanovic has Balkan parents and he studied classical music in Salzburg; Haque is part Pakistani, part Chilean, and is as much of an eclectic as his musical partner. While their compositions draw from Macedonian folk songs and pay homage to Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos, it's the pair's intricate harmonies that make Seven Boats an impressive recording. Both of these guitarists have impeccable technique, yet they are astute in choosing to go the route of minimalism and evocative uses of space. Ivanovic's title track is a great example of how to move dynamics with the right amount of subtelty.” Downbeat Magazine

Wild Child
Dave Brock's Doors Experience

 



A Live Re-creation of a 1960s Doors Concert
Fri. Jan. 19 at 8pm

Advanced online ticket sales are $20
$20 at the door | dance | ages 21 +

Wild Child - Dave Brock's Doors Experience is the Los Angeles based act with over 20 solid years of world tour experience and has flourished in the competitive L.A. Music Scene. Faithfully re-creating a live Doors Concert on stage. The music is painstakingly reproduced and combined with the voice, look and essence of Jim Morrison live on stage (performed by lead singer Dave Brock). Wild Child tries to mirror the depth, energy and emotion of The Doors concerts as they were live back in the late 1960's. The Band also utilizes the same musical instruments live as The Doors did over 40 years ago.

Wild Child performs internationally, playing to packed venues around the globe. Front man, Dave Brock, started his role as the Lizard King by grabbing the lead in the" Jim Morrison Rock Opera," produced by the late legends sister, Anna Morrison Graham. Anna personally selected Brock for the part. From there, he started the band "Wild Child," whose reputation rapidly spread from Southern California to remote areas of the world. Wild Child's first show at The Whisky a-Go-Go was on July 3rd, 1986. A long string of sell out shows at The Whisky has continued for Wild Child to this date

“I step into my ’94 Chevy pickup, turn on Edge of the West, and immediately I am transported to some kind of weird desert full of nudie suit cowboys, mutant punks, and flying saucers. Feels a lot like home. I’ve been driving through Death Valley for hours. Along the way I picked up the New Riders of the Purple Sage, the Descendents, and the ghost of Jerry Garcia. They all start jamming in the bed of my truck while I speed down the highway at 105 mph. That’s what Edge of the West sounds like. What a strange band. Strange is good. I could see this band becoming a great representative of a wide variety of social rejects. The acid freak hippie, the diehard cowboy, the hardcore punk, and the record reviewer at Western Free Press. We can all get together and have one hell of a time listening to this band. Or you can just listen by yourself, because as Edge of the West says, “you’ve got to be lonely by yourself.” Don’t be normal. Buy the debut Edge of the West album.”

“Hot Roux “nails it” with an authenticity that could only come from the deepest regions of the heart. This band delivers Americana, or roots music, in an old-school tradition but with a modern flair.  It doesn’t get any better than this.” ~ Bill Wilson, Reflections In Blue (Review on Stranger’s Blues)


“Since your ears can’t be everywhere at once, you might think this is a band that popped out of nowhere but these swamp rockers have been around, have played with a lot of the best and know how to put everything aside and be great entertainers without falling into jive ass clichés.” ~ Chris Spector, Midwest Records

Advanced online ticket sales are $12

Front Country: An acoustic band born in the land of tech innovation, Front Country was never going to be accepted as an authentic American roots band out of the gate. Cutting their teeth in progressive bluegrass jams in San Francisco's Mission District and rehearsing in the East Bay, they learned to play roots music their own way, with the tools they had on hand. A mandolinist with a degree in composition and classical guitar.

A guitarist trained in rock and world music. A bassist equally versed in jazz and bluegrass. A violinist with technique that could seamlessly hop between honky tonk and electropop. A female lead singer with grit and soul that was also a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter. In a wood-paneled country dive bar in the shadow of the San Francisco skyline, Front Country forged a sound hell bent on merging the musical past with the future.

The new record features 13 new Tom Russell originals and a bonus track of Bob Dylan's "Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues," a duet with Joe Ely, featuring Joel Guzman on Tex-Mex accordion. Augie Meyers and Eliza Gilkyson also make guest appearances on the album. The album was recorded at Congress House studio in Austin, Texas. There are songs and stories about: the Chelsea Hotel in New York City, Tom's journey from El Paso to Santa Fe, Ian Tyson refusing to "leave his old horses," a song for Dylan Thomas that melts into a Joycean landscape about a day in the life of Belfast, Ireland, Tom's meeting J.F.K., and even a song using only 16th century slang! Tom considers it his best record to date both from a songwriting and performance standpoint. Meanwhile! True North Records just released Tom's tribute to Ian and Sylvia - "Play One More - The Songs of Ian and Sylvia," including two Tom Russell co-writes, one each with both Ian and Sylvia, plus forgotten classics of folk music and two rare Ian and Sylvia demos.

Langhorne Slim

 



Slim reflects truths that we may or may not want to admit...

“As the phenomena of instant connection and the need for constant self-improvement further implant their tendrils into our culture, the ability to truly connect with each other and ourselves has begun to fade. As we all reach for our smartphones to gaze upon the manufactured perfection of the lives of those we admire, we lose sight of what makes our own lives important.

Nashville’s Langhorne Slim interlaces this theme throughout his new album. “Everyone’s searchin’ for something better around every corner, but it’s already right here,” Langhorne says. “We’re all born whole – through livin’ we fall apart…”

Foreverland

Celebrate the
King of Pop

Sat. March 3rd at 8pm
$25 adv./$25 door Dance – ages 21 +

Foreveland is a 14-piece tribute to one of the most amazing entertainers in the world, Mr. Michael Jackson.
Based in San Francisco, the group was formed in March of 2009 to honor Michael's musical genius and legendary showmanship. With four lead vocalists, four horns and a six-piece rhythm section, the ensemble is best described as a "Remarkable and Rocking Michael Jackson Revue."  Rather than be limited by a MJ impersonator and pre-recorded backing tracks, the band's unique approach is to celebrate the larger than life performances, imagination and infectious spirit of this legendary artist. The result is a fabulous and thumping 14-piece show band that pays homage to MJ's undeniable talent and timeless dance music.  And as the band likes to say, "Don't Blame It On The Sunshine, Don't Blame It On The Moonlight, Don't Blame It On The Good Times, BLAME IT ON THE BOOGIE!

The Mammals



High-octane quintet from New York's storied Hudson Valley carrying on the work of Pete Seeger & Woody Guthrie

Tue. March 6 at 7:30pm

Advanced online ticket sales are $15
$15 at the door | seated | <21 w/parent

PRESENTED WITH SNAZZY PRODUCTIONS

The Mammals: The Mammals are a high-octane Americana quintet from New York's storied Hudson Valley carrying on the work of Pete Seeger & Woody Guthrie with a deep original repertoire and signature “trad is rad” sound. Founded in 2001 by Seeger's grandson, Tao, second generation fiddler/singer, Ruth Ungar, and banjo/guitar songsmith, Mike Merenda, The Mammals reemerged in 2017 “stronger than ever” (Folk Alley) fronted by Mike + Ruthy along with drums, bass and pedal steel. Known for their jubilant, high-energy shows, The Mammals deftly move from older-than-dirt banjo duets to sound-the-alarm topical fare that's right in line with the times, bouncing from roof raising hoe-downs to hear-a-pin-drop a cappella balladry. "The Mammals don't suffer from multiple genre syndrome, they celebrate it as if gleefully aware that the sound barriers separating old-timey music, vintage pop and contemporary folk are as permeable as cotton.” (Washington Post) Their dynamic shows regularly bring a tear to the eye and hope to the hearts of listeners of all generations. In an era of disconnect, The Mammals work to re-connect thru their truth-telling lyrics, off-the-cuff storytelling and euphoric instrumentals.  In 2018 The Mammals will be touring internationally in support of their their new full-length release including the singles My Baby Drinks Water, a mother's lullaby plea to protect clean water, and Culture War, a song that “gets right to the heart of the fight for the American soul.” (No Depression)

An Evening with
Mary Gauthier

Thu. March 22 at 7:30pm

Advanced online ticket sales are $20
$25 at the door | Seated

 

Mary’s New Record, Rifles & Rosary Beads, will be released on January 26th, and was co-written with
combat veterans.

Every day. Every single day, which means some days are better and some much worse. Every day, on average, twenty-two veterans commit suicide. Each year seventy-four hundred current and former members of the United States Armed Services take their own lives. Every day. That number does not include drug overdoses or car wrecks
or any of the more inventive ways somebody might
less obviously choose to die.

It seems trivial to suggest those lives might be saved — healed, even — by a song. By the process of writing a song. And yet. And yet there is nothing trivial about Mary Gauthier's tenth album, Rifles and Rosary Beads (Thirty Tigers), all eleven songs co-written with and for wounded veterans. Eleven of the nearly four hundred songs that highly accomplished songwriters have co-written as part of Darden Smith's five-year-old SongwritingWith:Soldiers program. None of the soldiers who have participated in the program have taken their own lives, and there's nothing trivial about that. Something about writing that song — telling that story — is healing.

He began his musical studies on the trumpet, but a car accident ruined his embouchure. His musical interests took a turn when he was given a traditional cedar flute as a gift and challenged to master it. As an artist, he is an adventurer and risk taker, always giving his musical imagination free rein. Nakai is also an iconoclastic traditionalist who views his cultural heritage not only as a source and inspiration, but also a dynamic continuum of natural change, growth, and adaptation subject to the artist’s expressive needs.

PRESENTED BY THE CELTIC SOCIETY OF THE MONTEREY BAY

The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc is a fiddle trio from Norway, Sweden and the Shetland Islands who swiftly gained a reputation for their gripping and unique blend of fiddle music since their inception in early 2009. Comprising Olav Luksengård Mjelva (Norway), Anders Hall (Sweden) and Kevin Henderson (Shetland Islands), each regarded as leading exponents of their respective traditions, they have found themselves in great demand throughout the world performing together as ‘The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc'. With a firm focus on the rich traditional fiddle music from where they each belong, they have developed a sound that has been described as “unique”, “meaningful”,”intense” and “invigorating”. Their clever use of harmony, rhythm, riffs and bass lines creates a sound that leaves the listener enthralled but at the same time dumbfounded that the sound only comes from three fiddles. “Seldom before can three fiddlers have sounded so well matched as the Nordic Fiddlers Bloc. And seldom before can three fiddles have sounded so much like four and at times five instruments without using electronic trickery.” – The Herald. To date their music has taken them to the USA, Canada, the UK, Ireland and across mainland Europe captivating audiences along the way. 2016 saw the release of their eagerly awaited second album, “Deliverance”, the follow up to their eponymously entitled debut album released in September 2011 to great critical acclaim. “On the evidence to hand, pure fiddle doesn´t get much better than The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc.” Folkworld

With his soulful, honeyed tenor, sly humor and an uncanny knack for melody, Chris has traveled the world over, performing to a dedicated and ever growing fan base with nothing but his guitar and his songs. Raised on Prine and Kristofferson, Trapper's first foray in the music industry was as frontman of the critically acclaimed alt-rock band The Push Stars (Capitol Records). Over the past decade, Chris has become a modern day acoustic troubadour, performing over 150 dates a year as a headliner and sharing the stage with the likes of Colin Hay, Martin Sexton and even John Prine himself.

The New York Times has called his work “classic pop perfection.”

Blue Summit - They have been immersed in Bluegrass since youth, and since then have collected awards and a musical intuition that goes beyond any one genre.

The shows kickoff in March at landmark theaters along Main Street America,offering audiences a unique visual concert experience.

Singer-songwriter Melanie Safka (“Candles in the Rain” and “Brand New Key”) and pop/rock duo Gypsy Soul are featured artists in a cross-genre gathering of awardwinning artists including Native American “Educator of the Year,” Jacque Nunez, cowboy balladeers Sons of the Oregon Trail, jazz pianist Patti Moran McCoy who played with Duke Ellington, Martin Gerschwitz (Iron Butterfly), Chuck Girard (Lovesong), fusion rock guitarist/composer Byron Fry, multiinstrumentalist/songwriter John Elliott, Nick Garrett Powell (The Fret Drifters), and GRAMMY nominated singer/songwriter Pam Mark Hall. Singer/songwriter Christina Duane, who creater and producer Romancing the West, and co-producer legendary cowboy poet Butch Martin will also share the stage and bring the stories of the characters of the West on screen with historic imagery and reenactments.

This multimedia theatrical presentation was inspired by Duane’s vision and includes period costumes and full-screen imagery, reflecting significant times over the last two centuries, from the beauty of the Native people’s culture when the West lay untouched by time, to exploring the Oregon Trail to building the railroads and the preservation of the majestic lands. Concertgoers will enjoy an entertaining and educational production for all-ages that boldly remembers the tragic and celebrates the triumphant episodes in Western History. “Romancing the West” covers themes across the decades of social and political change to celebrate the pioneering human spirit and diverse legacy of the American West.
