AmadorArts’ TGIF free concert will feature “On Air”, Sacramento’s premier classic rock horn band and the 2017 winner of Best Local Band on Sacramento A-List, out of more than 200 bands. Solid rock music, tight harmony, and white hot horns characterize the “On Air” sound, with 5+ vocalists, both lead and backup.
The free concert will be in Jackson’s large shady Detert Park alongside Highway 49, starting at Performing the best of ‘70s and ‘80s rock and motown, along with contemporary selections. “On Air” has been featured repeatedly at venues like the Sacramento Music Festival in Old Sacramento, the Old Sacramento Blues Festival, the California State Fair, Stockton Asparagus Festival, and summer concerts throughout the region. They also perform for charity events including Thanksgiving Day Run to Feed the Hungry.
The “On Air” rhythm section consists of guitarist and founding member Bob Lang who shares vocals with lead guitarist Brian Hack, bass player Tony Oddo, and vocalist Suzanne Weissenberg. Rounding out the rhythm section is Barry Reynolds on keyboards and Geno Guerere on drums. The unique sound of On Air is found in the distinctive six piece horn section: Brian Nakagawa on trombone, Craig Yamamoto and Raul Sandoval on tenor sax, Brad Tom on baritone sax, and trumpeters Greg Evans, the band’s arranger, and Vahan Kachadorian, who is also a vocalist. Members tend to remain, as nearly half of the musicians have been with the band since or near its inception more than 30 years ago. Most of the rest have been a part of the group for the better part of the last decade.
Don’t miss this free musical party for everyone! Bring your own chairs or blankets and picnics to the park. Visit www.amadorarts.org for more info about TGIF concerts.
