The Amador County Concert Band presents “House of Horrors and More” - Sun Oct 11

A free concert will be presented by the 45-member Amador County Concert Band under the direction of Steve Chambers and Irv Gidding on Sunday, October 11 at 3pm. The program will be held at the Community Church of Pine Grove, 14045 Ponderosa Way, Pine Grove.

Featured music will be a medley from “Bond, James Bond”, transcribed for concert band by Stephen Bulla. This arrangement features the themes from some of the best 007 movies. Another special medley called “House of Horrors” features familiar themes from many of the old scary movies and cartoons we grew up watching! An arrangement called “Rocky and Bullwinkle Strikes Again” has melodies from the cartoon series that are a joy to listen to. Saxophonist Robert Bourke will be featured on a John Krance arrangement of “Harlem Nocturne”. Irv Gidding will conduct the theme from the movie The Alamo called “The Green Leaves of Summer”. Add a couple marches to the mix and we have a very fun afternoon of musical selections to come listen to!

The Amador County Concert Band proudly represented Northern California in June 2010, when it was selected to perform in Washington D.C. for the National Community Concert Band Sousa Festival, a salute to the legendary march king, John Philip Sousa. Under former musical director Ernie Kapphahn, the band gained very high recognition and since the band’s return, has gained new members, some traveling from as far away as Sonora, Placerville, El Dorado Hills, Cameron Park, and Sacramento.

The band also was chosen to perform last year at the Golden Gate Park Band Festival in June and played under the recently restored historic band shell. The Amador County Concert Band represented the Northern California area and was one of the largest ensembles to perform over the weekend, receiving superb reviews and a special recognition award for its performance. The band was also invited to perform at Carmichael Park on June 7 at 2pm and performed well!

Join us on October 11th at 3pm for an enjoyable musical experience; bring the family and enjoy the spirited music! Arrive a few minutes early for best seating….ample parking…music begins promptly at 3pm. Visit the band’s website at for additional information or to find out how to join the band.

ICONIC ALT COUNTRY SUPERGROUP - The Flatlanders featuring  Joe Ely,  Jimmie Dale Gilmore &  Butch Hancock - with legendary accordionist Joel Guzman!   
FRIDAY October 2 @ 8:00 pm
$80 adv / $80 day of show - ticket price the same for advance and day of show
Their last exclusive appearance was more than 6 years ago, so this is a very rare opportunity to see a classic band.

NOW WE CAN TELL YOU - Special guest Joel Guzman, Grammy winning accordion virtuoso will be joining the Flatlanders for this show!

Joe Ely formed the Flatlanders with Butch Hancock and Jimmie Dale Gilmore in 1970 and released his solo debut LP in 1977. Since that time he has collaborated with the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Linda Ronstadt and the Clash (he sings backup on the group's 1982 hit "Should I Stay or Should I Go"), and has earned a Grammy, a CMA award and the Americana Music Association Lifetime Achievement Award for Performance. Ely's songs have been covered by numerous artists. He has just been formally appointed the Official Texas State Musician for 2016, recognized for his outstanding commitment to the arts in his home state. 

Grammy nominee Jimmie Dale Gilmore's high, lonesome drawl has always been one of the purest instruments in country music. And yet Gilmore's clearest antecedents are rock musicians - he's a missing link between Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly, a high-plains drifter evoking a primal sense of wonder that can seem almost childlike. Jimmie Dale Gilmore has been a central figure in both Lubbock and Austin music scenes for much of the last thirty years. Buddy Holly's father produced Gilmore's first record. As a "Hub City Mover" Jimmie was a featured performer at the Grand Opening of Austin's legendary hippie haven - The Armadillo World Headquarters. He was named "Country Performer of the Year" by Rolling Stone magazine three (3) times in the decade of the 90's. Today - reunited with his freinds Joe Ely & Butch Hancock for the 21st Century - this Flatlander is still touching souls with his mystical West Texas voice.

Rolling Stone magazine describes Butch Hancock as "a raspy-voiced West Texas mystic with an equal affinity for romantic border balladry and Zen paradox." A world traveling troubadour with a long string of recorded songs and albums, Butch has been called "one of the finest songwriters of our time" and is acknowledged by his peers and critics alike as one of the premiere singer-songwriters Texas has ever produced. His tunes evoke mystical visions of wind-swept dry-plains and his lyrics are profoundly imaginative, often displaying for his listeners the miracles that occur in the ordinary through creative irony and metaphors. His lyrical style has often been compared to that of Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie and his record Own and Own, released in '91, contains his "If I Were a Bluebird" a song later covered by Emmylou Harris.

Grammy winner Joel Guzman is a gifted accordion player, songwriter, and vocalist.

CALICO the band - award winning California Country
Saturday October 10 @ 8:00 pm
$19 adv / $22 day of show
CALICO stands for California Country. CALICO the band is three: Kirsten Proffit, Manda Mosher, and Aubrey Richmond. All are great and dedicated musicians, each with accomplished and celebrated solo careers under way. That is, until Calico brought them together. We're very connected to a community of artists and venues that are flying the Americana flag," said Manda, "deeply influenced by the old scenes from the Palomino days, the Bakersfield Country sound from Buck Owens carried on by Dwight Yoakam, the sound of Gram Parsons' music, Joshua Tree and more." "We're here to tell people that Americana music is very much alive," said Kirsten, "and California is a viable source for this style. We're passionate about carrying on the tradition by incorporating these influences, but through a new lens, and always with respect."

CALICO the band extends the tradition of groups like Crosby, Stills & Nash, Fleetwood Mac and Eagles, both in terms of their L.A. roots, and by being a band of songwriters. "When you have bands where everybody's a songwriter," said Manda, "and everybody could lead on their own, and have a lead voice, but share that, it is powerful. That is who we are." Indeed CALICO the band is much about sharing: about sharing a musical vision, as well as sharing verses, sharing harmonies, sharing a singular spirit. "Bands that have more than one songwriter can be problematic," said Aubrey, "or just brilliant. And Calico is brilliant. All of our different songs and visions combine to make something great."
National Touring Artist of the Year for the Los Angeles Music Awards in 2013.
Americana Album of the Year for the 2014 Los Angeles Music Awards.

Close to You - A tribute to the Carpenters 
Saturday,October 17 @ 8:00 pm
$16 adv / $18 day of show
Michelle Whited performs a stunning presentation of reproducing Karen's unique voice along with Don Stamey on piano. The entire live band consists of skilled musicians who perform flawlessly, assisted by only pre-recorded background harmonies to attain the exclusive sound the Carpenters originally presented. The result is a memorable show that will keep you enthralled as you revisit the remarkable music interlude from an era we cherish for a lifetime.
The popular singing duo of the 1970's and early 80's focused on mid tempo pop and ballads with Karen Carpenter's unique and expressive alto voice on lead vocals. Both Karen and Richard Carpenter contributed background voices which were overdubbed to create densely layered harmonies, an integral part of their signature sound.

Sutter Creek Provisions presents Singer-Songwriter Gill Landry - Friday Nov 13

Gill Landry

November 13th 2015
Sutter Creek Provisions

~~Provisions turns one year old and we are celebrating with Gill Landry and all our friends and family~~
Join us as we welcome Gill to the Provisions stage!!
For a meat and potatoes opening to his bio, Gill Landry is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Louisiana. But he's also a photographer, a traveler, a painter, a storyteller, a mechanic, etc… It would take a novel to tell his tale. From hustling the streets of Paris to hitchhiking America on day labor and daydreams, he's slept beneath bridges with his brothers and in the beds of lordy estates.
He began his music career busking on the streets of New Orleans, cutting his teeth through the ranks, interpreting life from the curb up.

He released his first solo album "The Ballad of Lawless Soirez" in 2007 on the Nettwerk label and has been performing as a member of the band Old Crow Medicine Show since 2005.
He's opened legitimately and as a stowaway for a number of tours for such act's as Mumford and Sons, Brandi Carlile, Ben Howard, The Felice Brothers, and many more.
His latest body of work, the self-titled album "Gill Landry", was released by ATO Records in early March 2015. The album features a brilliantly diverse, yet cohesive, body of songs and a diverse cast of characters as well. From the haunting duet with Laura Marling in "Take This Body" to the Tex-Mex country guitar sounds of Robert Ellis in "Fennario", the songs are timeless, yet modern. His keen sense for lyricism is highlighted beautifully by the tonality and melody of the compositions.
ALSO helping us celebrate REVIVAL TINTYPE!
Come and have your authentic tintype taken just like your great-great-great granddaddy would have!
Tangible. Honest. Permanent. Handcrafted portraits like your great, great grandfather took. Vintage keepsakes for the digital age.
