Craig Corona @ River Terrace Inn Live Music | Born and raised on Long Island during a period when most kids were listening to glamour rock it's hard to believe that Craig could have been pushed in the direction to perform Bluegrass and Country music. He taught himself to play on his father's cheap, old, nylon string classical (which he still has). It was when he was forced to join the school choir by his best friend that he was set on the course to performing. Campfire type sing alongs taught him a lot of the old folk tunes that he still holds among his influences. Playing these songs also taught him the value of sharing music. During the "Urban Cowboy" period when everyone wanted to ride a mechanical bull, Craig's parents owned a small country bar that boasted live music on weekends. Hanging out and watching the performers he was inspired and became more familiar with the trade. Finally, one night, Tom Russel and Andrew Hardin convinced his parents to let him get up and play a few songs with them. The bug bit hard!

With influences from Hank Williams to John Denver to Crosby Stills and Nash, Craig writes and performs folk music with a distinctive country flavor. In 1997, Craig released his first full length CD, Sawmill Town, featuring ten original tracks rich with rural American hopes and dreams. Craig's early influences of folk, country and bluegrass are showcased by his melodic vocals and rich harmonies. In 2012, Craig released his long awaited sophomore album, About Time, which further explored his diverse music background through instrumentation including pedal steel, banjo, and lap steel. While Craig is best known as a solo singer/songwriter, he also tours as a one man jukebox of country, pop, and rock tunes from the 60's, 70's, and 80's, bringing people to their feet with the songs that defined an entire generation.

Join us at the new ALBA restaurant inside River Terrace Inn where we will resume our live music series. Enjoy music, a new menu, and a full bar on our outdoor terrace featuring some of the area's top talent.

Ca' Momi Osteria hosts Cave Clove | Cave Clove is a four-piece rock band based in Oakland, CA. Their latest self-titled album is slated for release on November 4, 2016 and marks the solidification of the band's five-year journey to find the true heart and soul of their sound.

 

 

In 2011, singer / guitarist, Katie Colver began collaborating with drummer Kendra Kilkuskie. The pair began performing songs from Colver's self-released folk album, Cabin Habits, and from there Cave Clove was born. As the band made the rounds in the local Americana scene, their sound evolved to incorporate elements of doo wop and classic rock into their already well-established folk roots. They took their new material to the studio and made the Bases for Pyramids EP (2013), produced and recorded by Oakland legend Greg Ashley of The Gris Gris. Shortly after, Cave Clove released two single / B-side combos: 2013's Still Just As Free an upbeat pop single recorded at New, Improved Recording with Carlos Arrendondo behind the board; and Kyrie (2014) recorded by Robert Shelton at Tiny Telephone and released on 7" vinyl by Royal Oakie Records. While all of their previous efforts were well received by press and fans alike, Colver and Kilkuskie were still pushing to solidify the Cave Clove sound. In 2015, the pair got their wish when they met guitarist Brent Curriden (Travis Hayes / Lords of Sealand) and bassist Alisa Saario. Curriden brings serious chops and a rock sensibility to the table, while Saario's masterful sense of rhythm melds seamlessly with Kilkuskie's drums.

So what exactly is "Shop with a Cop Napa"? The proceeds of this event make our holiday event sponsored by Kiwanis Club of Greater Napa, Napa Target Store #1026, and Napa Police Department Youth Services Bureau possible for disadvantaged youth in Napa Valley. With your help in supporting our event, we are hoping to allow at least 100 of Napa's neediest youth the experience of shopping for holiday gifts for their immediate family members with some of "Napa's finest'. Many of these youth have not experienced the joy of giving unconditionally.

Our second goal through this event is to change perceptions. Now more than ever perceptions of law enforcement personnel must be changed. Current events have left the most vulnerable youth with a less than favorable impression of law enforcement personnel. We hope you join us at this fabulous event!

Comedian Howie Mandel @ Uptown Theatre Napa | Comedian, actor and TV personality, Howie Mandel has remained a constant force in show business for more than 30 years. Making Comedy Central's list of top 100 comedians of all time, Howie is best known as the host of the international smash hit game show "Deal or No Deal" and as a popular judge on the iconic TV talent show "America's Got Talent."

Mandel's versatile career has encompassed virtually all aspects of the entertainment spectrum, including television, film and stage. From his work on the Emmy-Award winning St. Elsewhere to the international animated children's series Bobby's World, Howie has become a mainstay of the American comedy scene. In 2009, Howie added another title to his resume, author, when he released his frank, funny, no-holds- barred memoir Here's the Deal: Don't Touch Me. The memoir that revealed his ongoing struggle with OCD and ADHD-and how it has shaped his life and career made the New York Times Bestseller list on its first week and remained on the list for several consecutive weeks.

Howie started his career on a dare in Toronto in 1979 and then one night during a trip to Los Angeles he was at the legendary Comedy Store on amateur night and Howie was coaxed by his friends to get up and try his luck. As fate would have it, there was a producer in the crowd who immediately hired him to appear on the comedy game-show Make Me Laugh. His appearance on the show led to talk show appearances, a stint as Diana Ross' opening act and eventually to the television series St. Elsewhere, where Howie spent six seasons as "Dr. Wayne Fiscus" on the award-winning NBC drama. Howie's Emmy Award-nominated animated children series Bobby's World ran eight seasons on FOX and now appears in syndication six days a week in 65 countries. As the series' creator and executive producer, Howie was closely involved in its writing, as well as providing the voice of Bobby, Bobby's dad and other characters. Howie attributes the show's success to drawing the story lines from real life.

Howie has done countless comedy specials both on cable and network television. He has also hosted his own syndicated talk show, The Howie Mandel Show, and continues to be a mainstay on the talk-show circuit. Howie also continues to perform as many as 200 concerts a year throughout the US and Canada.

Howie lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Terry, and their three children.

This week, Mike brings up close and intimate personal performances to the Silo's stage with guest vocalist Maye Cavallaro.

Imagine you're in Manhattan clutching a dry martini. Immerse yourself in The Great American Songbook, with classic tunes by writers ranging from Gershwin and Irving Berlin to Harold Arlen and Leonard Bernstein and everything in between, and walk away with a swing in your step and a clearer insight into the history and magic of American songwriting.

Special guest Maye Cavallaro - 6 to 8 p.m.
Mike solo piano - 8 to 9 p.m

After graduating in 1972 from Leeds College of Music in England, Mike toured Europe and the Far East and lived in Hong Kong for 4 years before finally settling into his adopted home, San Francisco, in 1977. Well known in his role as musical director to acclaimed vocalist Wesla Whitfield with whom he has recorded twenty albums, Mike is also resident piano player on Sedge Thomson's weekly Public Radio show to the world, "West Coast Live" - more info at wcl.org. Mike can also be caught playing jazz with his trio in many a Bay Area saloon and jazz club.

DENNIS QUAID AND THE SHARKS @ The Blue Note Napa |

Dennis Quaid and The Sharks have been performing in front of thousands of people receiving rave reviews. He is not just another actor turned rock star, he is a rock star. Dennis Quaid is the lead singer and rhythm guitarist. He performs many original plus classic hits such as "Spill the Wine", "Gloria", and many more. The band's origins can be traced to one night when Quaid went to see actor Harry Dean Stanton and his longtime band (appropriately named the Harry Dean Stanton Band) perform at an L.A. club. Quaid was invited to join the band onstage. At first reluctant because of his decade long layoff from music, Quaid finally did perform with the band and was successful enough that James, also a member of Stanton's band, approached Quaid about starting a group of their own. James quickly began recruiting others for the band and it wasn't long before Dennis Quaid & the Sharks, which specializes in "rock 'n' roll and country soul," was performing at L.A. clubs.
