AmadorArts’ TGIF free concert July 13 will feature the “Twilight Drifters”, described as an ”American roots music sensation.” Their popularity last year has brought them back to Amador! The concert begins at 6:00 pm in Sutter Creek’s Minnie Provis Park. Bring your own chairs or blankets and picnics to the park.
The Twilight Drifters is a rockabilly and roots rock ‘n roll trio based in Northern California and is comprised of Geoffrey Miller, vocals and guitar; Todd Hinton, bass; and Brad Cross, drums. They morph the familiar sounds of the 1950s into a mix of re-made classic and original songs. Performing danceable tunes spanning genres of rock ‘n roll, honkytonk, western swing, rockabilly and west coast blues, the band definitely entertains, moves, and captivates audiences, as they did in the 2017 TGIF at Hanford Courte.
The Twilight Drifters started in Sacramento, California and their fast-spreading reputation have made them regular entertainment at many Sacramento area venues, such as Old Ironsides and the Torch Club, and to regional events from San Francisco to Lake Havasu, even to the 19th annual Viva Las Vegas Festival. The band’s second CD, ‘Paint and Primer’, recorded and produced by Deke Dickerson, is now available.
Minnie Provis Park, is located on Church Street, a half block off Main in Sutter Creek. Don’t miss this free dance-inducing musical party for everyone! Visit www.amadorarts.org for more info about TGIF concerts.
