Martha Davis & The Motels - TWO SHOWS!

[Reserved seating: $45-55] The first 50 tickets purchased for the 7:00pm show may include a MEET & GREET with the members of Martha Davis & The Motels! Martha Davis & The Motels: For Martha Davis, the most important thing has always been the songs she writes. Born and raised in Berkeley, California, she moved to Los Angeles in the early ‘70s, along with the first incarnation of The Motels. The band reformed in 1978 and was immediately signed to Capitol Records in 1979. The Motels’ self-titled debut was greeted with positive critical reviews in 1979 and exploded in Australia on the strength of the #2 Pop single, “Total Control”. In 1981 their sophomore effort, “Careful,” went Top 50. Then, in 1982, the Motels released All Four One; the smash single “Only The Lonely” rocketed into the Top 10, immediately propelled the album to gold status and truly broke The Motels in the United States. The group dominated the music scene and was voted Best Performance for “Only The Lonely” at the 1982 American Music Awards. 1983’s Little Robbers album went gold on the Top 10 single “Suddenly Last Summer” and the second Top 40 hit “Remember The Nights.” In 1985, the Shock album yielded the Top 20 hit, “Shame,” and 1987 saw the release of Martha’s first solo effort, Policy. Beginning in 2012, Martha began touring with the current and strongest incarnation yet of The Motels. Dates included a landmark performance at the legendary Hollywood Bowl, where she and the band shared the bill with The Go-Go’s.

Firefall - TWO NIGHTS, FOUR SHOWS!

Jun 29, 2018 - Jun 30, 2018

[Reserved seating: $59-80] The first 50 tickets purchased for 7:00pm show each night can include MEET & GREET with the members of FIREFALL!

The genealogy and musical roots of FIREFALL run deep into the fertile soil of American rock and folk rock music. It began with Woodie Guthrie and later, Bob Dylan, evolving into the Byrds and the Buffalo Springfield. The genre established by these luminaries continued with Crosby, Stills and Nash, Manassas, The Band, Neil Young, The Eagles, Poco, Loggins and Messina, The Flying Burrito Brothers, Gram Parsons and Emmy Lou Harris, Dan Fogelberg, America and FIREFALL. Many of these participants mingled in the studio and on tour. Individually and collectively they created a sound that changed the world’s musical landscape.

FIREFALL is one of the few surviving bands of this genre, remaining true to its founding vision and roots despite personnel changes over its 40+ year history. The band transcends and embraces many industrial labels- rock, soft rock, country rock, contemporary country, easy listening and Americana.

“I think it’s great that in this day and age of trends that change overnight, a kind of music we helped create 40+ years ago is still around and growing in popularity” -Jock Bartley--

For co-founder Jock Bartley, FIREFALL has not only represented an opportunity to make quality music over the course of 4 decades, but also represents a personal, heartfelt commitment to maintaining the tradition of a contemporary musical genre he and his peers helped create. From 1976 through the early 1980’s, the Boulder, Colorado-based rock band, FIREFALL; Rick Roberts, Jock Bartley, Mark Andes, Michael Clarke, Larry Burnett and David Muse, saturated the nation’s radio air waves and toured the world over, selling millions of records and earning two platinum and three gold albums.

They shared stages with other top bands of the day – Fleetwood Mac, The Doobie Brothers, Peter Frampton, The Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Marshall Tucker Band, Chicago, The Beach Boys, Loggins and Messina, America, Bob Seger, Heart and many others. The band dazzled audiences with their exuberant and rocking performances – this was no ‘light rock’ band. FIREFALL is a group of exceptional musicians and singers, with a repertoire of recognizable songs few bands can match. Their many hits – “You Are The Woman,” “Just Remember I Love You,” “Strange Way,” “Cinderella,” “Mexico,” “Livin’ Ain’t Livin’,” “So Long,” “Goodbye I Love You,” “Sweet and Sour” and others – are faithfully recreated with a freshness rare in live performances of such classics.

In the 1990’s, Rhino Records began releasing their original albums on CD, including the compilation, FIREFALL’s GREATEST HITS. These classic albums reveal a successful sound that many bands strive for. With the combined ingredients of band members: Rick, Jock, Mark, David, Larry and Michael a fresh new sound was born. With contributing guest appearances by such greats as Stephen Stills, Richie Furay, David Sanborn, Bill Payne (Little Feat) and Timothy B. Schmidt (Eagles), these recordings set a new bar. With lead guitarist, singer/songwriter, Jock Bartley as the common thread and FIREFALL’s 1994 CD release, “MESSENGER,” the band continues to expand upon their distinctive sound. It is filled with passionate lyrical incisiveness, with great melodic range and diversity. “When The River Rises” was written for and dedicated to the 1993 Midwest Flood Victims, with a portion of the proceeds from this song going to disaster relief. Jock Bartley’s uplifting song of 1998, “Call On Me,” became an anthem of sorts for Suicide Prevention. As a spokesman for the cause and the first ever national crisis hotline network, 1 (800) SUICIDE, he helped to put on three fund raising benefits around the country featuring such musical luminaries as Michael McDonald, Wynonna Judd, Journey, Steve Winwood, David Pack of Ambrosia and Rusty Young of Poco. “Call On Me” is included on Jock’s first ever solo CD, “BLINDSIDE,” released in late 2006.

Throughout the years, FIREFALL has nurtured their faithful and growing audience through their dynamic live concert performances, which have continually brought in new generations of fans. The “experience” of FIREFALL’s live concerts leaves their fans, old and new, thinking that they’ve just attended one of the best concerts they’ve ever seen. With the wealth of old and new songs, FIREFALL demonstrates the depth and diversity of the band’s lyrical and musical excellence. Their tight harmonies and intricate vocal arrangements are a fresh reminder of what melodic music is all about. The excellence of musicianship is intensely felt and appreciated by audiences. The response to the solos and many extended “jams” in concert, is an overwhelming infectious helping of fun and spontaneity in the highest degree.

FIREFALL was one of the first bands to bring the creative and musical richness of the Rocky Mountain area to the forefront of the industry. The resurgence of this diverse musical hotbed has since given way to the likes of Big Head Todd and the Monsters, The Samples and The String Cheese Incident. And so, the band has come full circle. In 40 + years of making exceptional music, FIREFALL has distinguished themselves as one of the top bands from the genre of music called Americana. They helped spearhead the birth and continuation of the country rock / folk rock sound of the 70’s. FIREFALL is as vital as ever, standing out as one of the few remaining torchbearers for harmony laden rock; a welcome blast from the past focused firmly on the future.

Erick Baker - Singer/Songwriter from Nashville!

Thursday, July 5, 2018 - 8:00 PM

[Reserved Seating $15-20] I didn’t grow up singing or playing music. I’ve never had voice lessons, and it wasn’t until after college that I started teaching myself how to play guitar. So, if you’d told me then that I’d end up making a living as a singer-songwriter, I wouldn’t have believed you. Even now, after the release of my fourth studio album, Dear Amanda, I can barely believe it.

I hadn’t seriously considered pursuing a career in music until May 9, 2007, when I walked off stage after opening for John Legend. One set, six songs in just thirty minutes, changed my life forever. Since then, I’ve been lucky enough to play with artists like Heart, Brandi Carlile, Gavin DeGraw, James Blunt, Grace Potter, Goo Goo Dolls, as well as tour Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, performing for our men and women in uniform stationed overseas.

Music has been one of the greatest blessings in my life. Without music, I may have never met the two greatest loves of my life, my wife, Mandy, and my daughter, Annabelle Rose Baker. My songs belong to every right turn and wrong turn that has led me here, and not a day goes by that I don’t give thanks for that old wood box with six strings.

Along with my career in music, I’m also an Emmy Award Winning host of the PBS outdoor television show Tennessee Valley Uncharted. I’m proud to say I’ve lived in the Tennessee Valley my entire life. However, touring the world for the last decade as a singer-songwriter, I’ve only seen it passing by through a windshield. As the host of Tennessee Valley Uncharted, I’m getting the opportunity to rediscover how great my home region is, one outdoor adventure at a time.

 

FRIDAY! LATIN NIGHT at Silo's: Latin Rhythm Boys

Friday, July 6, 2018 - 8:00 PM

[General Admission: 415-20] ¡Vamos a bailar! Join us for a night of LIVE Latin music at its best, with the fantastic Latin Rhythm Boys! Live salsa music is once again taking the San Francisco Bay Area by storm. Every week more and more nightclubs and venues are adding live salsa nights to their calendars. And given the origins and influences of this musical genre, enjoyed all over the world, it is no wonder that as the live music scene in the San Francisco Bay Area (and beyond) rebounds, dancing to live Salsa takes center stage (once again). After all, some historians have described “salsa” as a word with “vivid associations,” fusing swing, soul music, jazz, (Puerto Rican) bomba y plena, and the Cuban “son.”

It is this fusion of international musical (and cultural) influences which makes salsa so appealing to so many people. And speaking of cultural influences, there is one orchestra charting a new course in the San Francisco Bay Area Salsa scene: Latin Rhythm Boys! In 1963 Jr. Henry Miranda’s plan came to fruition. A lifelong Cuatrista, he brought his amazing music from Hawaii to California where he formed the group “Jr. Miranda and His Latin Rhythm Boys”. He inspired and mentored many, leaving behind a musical legacy for his sons Earl R. Miranda and Henry Miranda Jr.

Latin Rhythm Boys–The modern-day brainchild of brothers, Earl and Henry Miranda Jr.–has evolved into a powerhouse of high energy Puerto Rican Music that includes Salsa as well as their specialty Jibaro sound. Reminiscent of the FANIA All Stars, these bad boys of Latin Music are hitting the world by storm.

To date this phenomenal specialty band combines expertise sounds acquired throughout the Bay Area, Puerto Rico and New York City. Latin Rhythm Boys continue to captivate their fans and audiences with their unique musical style and stage presence. With two successful CD launches under their belt, “Musica De Mis Padres” in 2005, and “Year of The Cuatro” in 2013, they’re about to release their third CD project, featuring multiple award-winning invited guest artists such as Grammy Award winner (the late) Johnny Polanco on Trombone and Tres Guitar, Artie Webb on flute, vocals by 8-time Grammy nominee & 3-times Grammy winner Willy Torres, as well as other Latin music luminaries like Chino Nuñez, and Jimmy Bosch, among others.

Poco - TWO SHOWS!

Jul 14, 2018 - Jul 14, 2018

[Reserved seating: $75-95] The first 50 tickets purchased for 7:00pm show may include a MEET & GREET with the members of Poco! For more than 50 years, their distinctive harmonies and stellar musicianship helped define the sound of country-rock. Still led by the band co-founder and multi-instrumentalist who wrote and sang their biggest hits, they are a dedicated unit of four formidable songwriters, vocalists, arrangers and players. And rather than rest on any of these considerable laurels, they instead hit stages coast-to-coast armed with the kind of classic songs and instrumental chops that puts performers half their age to shame.

In other words, Poco today is a band reborn.

“Poco has a history unmatched by any band,” says co-founder Rusty Young. “We’ve always been formed by individually unique artists. It’s fate that the four of us came together, and it’s a process of evolution that we’ve become a better and better band.” Poco is Young (steel and acoustic guitars, dobro, mandolin, banjo, vocals), Jack Sundrud (bass, vocals), Michael Webb (keyboards, mandolin, accordion, guitars, vocals) and Rick Lonow (drums, vocals). “We’re so in tune with each other musically and personally,” Young says, “that I consider us to be one of the very best bands that Poco has ever had.”

The quick history: Rising from the ashes of Buffalo Springfield, Poco was founded in 1967 by Rusty Young, Richie Furay, George Grantham and Jim Messina. Over the next five decades, alongside band mates that would also include Paul Cotton, Randy Meisner and Timothy B. Schmit, Rusty became not only the musical core of the band, but also the writer and vocalist behind hits including ‘Rose Of Cimarron’ and the #1 smash “Crazy Love’. “I made a promise to myself that Poco would only keep going if we remained a band of real musicians who were having fun,” Rusty says. “Because audiences can tell the difference.”

“We all feel like we’ve landed on a combination of people and a situation that gives us a lot of satisfaction,” agrees longtime bassist Sundrud, whose pre-Poco stints included bass/vocals for Dickey Betts, Nicolette Larson, Vince Gill and Bobby Whitlock, songwriter for Kenny Rogers, Ty Herndon and The Judds, and co- founder of the celebrated progressive country band Great Plains. ““Poco has always blazed a trail musically,” he says. “The band was on the forefront of getting country and rock to work together organically. I’m proud to be part of Poco, and today we’re all focused on keeping Poco vibrant and new.”

“At the end of the day, bands survive and flourish on their chemistry,” says Lonow, who was a former member of The Flying Burrito Brothers, The Jamie Hartford Band, The Bellamy Brothers and Burrito Deluxe, played on Grammy nominated/winning albums by June Carter Cash, Billy Joe Shaver and Loretta Lynn, and was co- writer of Poco’s 1989 smash ‘Call It Love’. “Rusty is still the voice that everyone recognizes from the hits and he can still play his ass off. Jack has been in the band since 1985 and his vocals and bass playing are key to the Poco sound. Michael brings a musicianship that has redefined the band’s energy. When we want, we can turn any song into a really amazing country-rock odyssey.”

“All of us had individually been a part of some very musically adventurous scenes, whether it was country, rock or bluegrass,” explains Michael Webb. “And Poco pretty much created a lot of the templates that influenced what we were all doing.” Kentucky native Webb had begun his career working with The Wooten Brothers before moving to Nashville in the late ‘80s and joining cult country-rockers Mark Germino & The Sluggers and The Brooklyn Cowboys, as well as playing on and/or producing albums by Chris Stapleton, Allison Moorer, Dan Baird and Stacey Earle. “Poco was exactly what I was looking to do and didn’t even know it,” Webb says. “At the time I got the call, I was on tour with John Fogerty who’s known for playing his songs exactly as people remember them. Poco puts the songs first, but are also committed to being sonically creative. Rusty and I started pushing each other in solos and improvisation almost instantly.”

For the band’s legion of longtime fans – known as ‘Poconuts’ – as well as new converts, it’s Poco’s live performances where their newfound attitude and energy truly goes next level. “We challenge each other every time we’re onstage,” says Rusty, “which means that no two shows are ever alike. Between Michael and I, we play 10 different instruments and are able to open up some musically adventurous journeys.” Webb is proud that audiences have enthusiastically embraced the band’s new approach. “We still play all the hits that fans love – and we love playing them – but our emphasis is no longer on duplicating the catalog,” he says. “Rusty is a great writer and singer, but he’s first and foremost a really imaginative musician. And his musicianship is becoming a focus again.” Alongside hits like ‘Crazy Love’, ‘A Good Feelin’ To Know’, ‘Rose Of Cimarron’, ‘Call It Love’, ‘Heart Of The Night’ and ‘Keep On Tryin’’, songs from the acclaimed 2013 album All Fired Up are now concert favorites. Best of all, the band’s incendiary instrumental jams have become an organic throwback to Poco’s legendary ‘70s performances. ”There are a lot of people seeing the band for the first time, or for the first time in 10 years,” says Sundrud. “And they tell us that Poco is just a great rock & roll experience.”

Yet another bonus of the band’s rebirth is the growing recognition of Poco as godfathers of the roots movement. “Poco, at its core, is an early example of what could be described as Americana” No Depression said in 2014; “a roots rock band that melded genres in the process of creating something new and exciting.” Rusty – arguably the most influential steel player in rock & roll history – was inducted into Guitar Player Magazine’s ‘Gallery Of Greats’ in 2012, and Michael, Jack and Rick are in-demand session players for artists that include Sturgill Simpson, Chris Knight, Ryan Bingham, Jamey Johnson and Zac Brown Band. “Artists like Buffalo Springfield, Gram Parsons, The Band and Poco wrote the blueprints for the Americana movement,” Lonow says. “They were a bunch of longhaired hippie rockers who couldn’t deny their love of steel guitar and harmonies. Americana began as folk and country-rock, and Americana fans tend to also be Poco fans.”

“We don’t feel like a 50-year old band,” Rusty Young says with pride. “Poco has never slowed down or stopped making new music. Everyone loves the challenge of being in Poco, and we’re all working hard at moving the band towards new audiences. We love playing for people who haven’t heard Poco in a while – or are maybe hearing them for the first time – and having them discover who Poco is today.”

For Poco, this is more than just a time of rebirth. On record and onstage, it’s the sound of a legendary band once again hitting its stride.
