BottleRock Presents Cheech & Chong With Shelby Chong @ The Uptown | Brought to you by the producers of the Bottlerock Music Festival! Successful beyond their wildest dreams, the iconic comedy duo Cheech & Chong defined an era with their hilariously irreverent, satirical, counter-culture, no-holds-barred comedy routines. Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong’s phenomenal success began on the stand up comedy circuit which led to 9 hit comedy albums and 8 hit films, breaking box office records, shattering comedy album sales, garnering multiple Grammy nominations and mesmerizing fans for more than a decade.
 
With nine albums released from 1972 through 1985, Cheech and Chong were nominated for four Grammy Awards, winning the Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album with their third album, Los Cochinos, released in 1973. Big Bambu, their second album, was the biggest selling comedy record of all time in 1972 and remained so for many years. Their stunningly successful comedy streak transitioned to film in 1978 with their first movie, “Up In Smoke,” the highest grossing comedy of 1978, topping $100 million at the box office. Cheech and Chong co-wrote and starred in a total of eight feature films together, all directed by Chong.

Bottlerock Presents Rodrigo y Gabriela @ Th Uptown | Brought to you by the producers of the Bottlerock, internationally acclaimed Mexican acoustic rock guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela will be bringing their unique instrumental blend of metal, jazz and world music to the Uptown audience. Rodrigo Sanchez and Gabriela Quintero have been playing together for more than fifteen years. First as young thrash metal fans in their native Mexico City, then as innocents abroad and street musicians in Dublin, Ireland at the turn of the millennium, and finally as the globe-straddling, film-scoring, record-breaking artists they are today.
 

Known for exhilarating live shows, Rodrigo y Gabriela have won the hearts of music lovers from the haciendas of Cuba to the Hollywood Bowl and festival fields of Europe, as they continue to weave their unique six-string magic. The extraordinary interplay between Sanchez’s fiery lead lines and Quintero’s phenomenal rhythmic battery is truly universal. The duo has reloaded their arsenal following the April 2014 worldwide release of 9 Dead Alive, their first studio album in five years. The new songs are intimate, the playing intuitive, and the results are spectacular, bursting with melodic energy and rhythmic invention. Recorded at their Pacific Coast hideaway in late summer, the album captures the warmth and spontaneity of two great musicians riffing and jamming together, perfectly distilled into 9 new songs teeming with desire, elegance and gusto.
 
With career sales in excess of 1.5 million albums, blockbuster movie scores, and sold out tours worldwide, Rodrigo y Gabriela have certainly made their mark. Their appeal is boundless, their scope limitless, and the music timeless; clearly, we have only begun to see what this duo is capable of.

Wednesday Night Ramble: Terry Hanck @ Historic Empress Theatre | The North Bay All-Stars host a gathering of musical friends in the latest edition of The Wednesday Night Ramble at the historic Empress Theatre in downtown Vallejo. The All-Stars are Don Bassey on bass and vocals, Mike Emerson on keyboards, T Moran on drums, and Matt Silva on guitar. Soul-rockin' Bluesman Terry Hanck brings his smokin' sax and vocals to the Empress for this version of the Ramble.

Blues and roots fans know that the soundtrack to early rock' n' roll ran on three-minute instrumentals with sax in the lead, and was directly related to 1950s and 1960s New Orleans R&B hits, along with that deep-fried wildness that came from Memphis. With this history lesson, old school rock 'n' soul saxophonist and singer Terry Hanck makes perfect sense. Clearly, Hanck has worshipped at the right Southern altars--those of such iconic R&B brothers as Fats Domino, Ray Charles, B. B. King, Lee Allen and King Curtis. "I write songs that you think you've heard for years," says the South Florida-based Hanck, who's got suave movie-star looks and a good time presence that immutably anchors the old-style R&B he adores. His level of expertise on this, his 6th album, makes for an unbeatable workout on his debut for Delta Groove, LOOK OUT!

As Living Blues writer Lee Hildebrand testified, "Hanck is one of the most formidable saxophonists in the blues and soul business. He has a virile tone and attack and an uncanny command of upper-register notes." But, whether it is a joyous jump blues romp or a steamy slow dance of a stroll--this is the kind of music that has mattered to the tall tenor man all his life...

Napa City Nights Featuring Girls & Boys, The Grain Band and Jessica Martindale @ Veterans Memorial Park Amphitheater |
A Napa Valley Summer Tradition is back for 2016! Grab your blanket and picnic basket and head downtown this Friday for the kick off of the Napa Valley's best Summer concert series. This week's artists:

Girls & Boys

Girls & Boys delivers a sound ranging from rock and pop to soulful and moody. The band always delivers a powerful performance with a chemistry that is undeniable both on and off the stage. From Santa Rosa, California who are quickly on the rise at some of the top venues in California including the Bottle Rock Fest in Napa, Great American Music Hall, Mountain Winery in Saratoga, The Mint LA, Mystic Theater, Vina Robles Amphitheater, and The Sweetwater Music Hall to name a few, and to be recipients of the Bay Area's Bohemian Best Indie Band in 2012. The band's members consist of Brianna Lee Vocals - Guitar - Keys, Josh Barrett Bass, Mark Tarlton Drums, Nick Simmons Guitar and Ross Barbieri Guitar - Vocals. Led by the soulful vocals of front-woman Brianna Lee, the band's dynamics back up her every move with power and grace making for a captivating live show.

Since the release of their debut album in 2012 people near and far have been taking notice of Girls & Boys. The album's strong sonic quality and songwriting landed placements of four of their songs in Film and TV including 2013's "Divorce Invitation" and the Showtime Reality series "The Real L Word".

The Grain Band

 
A mainstay of the Petaluma Rock scene, The Grain has gained notoriety with local music lovers who flock to Sonoma County's best venues to get down with P-Town's most powerful quartet. Guitarist and songwriter, Pete Delaney, has played his special blend of Rock and Blues up and down the West Coast for over two decades. He is backed by the one and only Graham Stearns on bass, guitarist extraordinaire, Erik Stieg, and the funky drummer, Sean England. The Grain's music consists of a balance of well crafted original songs and classic cover tunes that often lead into extended solos and jams creating a musical environment that engages both the mind and body.

Jessica Martindale

More than a songwriter. There is courage in her pulse. An aching wisdom in her voice. A woman whose music has the stripped down, real-deal beauty that comes from risking everything. Not bowing even to the indie idol of irony, her crisp, sultry voice answers only to honesty, and is its own license to croon. Her songs spring from an undeniable passion, in the old-school, sweating-blood sense of the word.

Napa City Nights

In the heart of downtown Napa is the renovated Veterans Memorial Park Amphitheater. Construction was completed in May 2008 as part of the Napa River Walk & flood control project. With Terraced seating areas, elegant lighting and beautiful views of the Napa River, the park is a unique venue for watching talented musicians and performers. Musical genres include Jazz, Rock, Country, World, Blues, Pop and Folk.

The Amphitheater is located along the Napa Riverwalk Promenade and is within easy walking distance from world class restaurants and distinctive shops. Nearby public transit and public parking make visiting the venue a breeze. Bring a blanket and a picnic basket and enjoy free entertainment the whole family will enjoy.

Hotel California - A Salute to The Eagles @ The Uptown | Founded with the intent of filling the void left by the demise of The Eagles in 1982, HOTEL CALIFORNIA faithfully and accurately reproduces the sound of the Eagles studio recordings while recreating a classic sound which undeniably transcends the boundaries of Rock, R&B, and Country while delivering a modern, action packed performance that brings this timeless music into the new millennium. This band, comprised of five respected, multi-talented top music industry professionals, presents a dynamic exciting show saluting the music of The Eagles, a supergroup whose music has proven to have a staying power that few bands lay claim to. Finally, audiences can once again experience the energy and magic of this timeless music. This highly acclaimed presentation has a great reputation and excellent references.

From fan reviews on Ticketmaster:

“I couldn’t believe my ears! This is by far the best Eagles cover band I have seen/heard. Even though the lead voices did not sound exactly like Frey and Henley, they were very strong and the background vocals and harmonies were indistinguishable from the Eagles themselves. Musicianship was outstanding all around.”

“The group sounded even better than the Eagles and each individual musician was very gifted on the guitar, keyboard, harmonica and other string instruments as well as an awesome drummer. the voices harmonized with perfection.”

“What an awesome group of guys! As my husband put it, ‘I would not have changed a thing!'”

HOTEL CALIFORNIA has become one of the most sought after acts in the world, with name recognition and true marquis value paralleling today’s modern recording artists. The group performs 150 – 200 high profile events every year, including special corporate functions, charity benefits, fund raisers, outdoor concerts, festivals, and fairs, playing main stages receiving top billing as a national act, as well as opening for some of the most prominent names in the entertainment industry. See the “clients” page for a sampling of credit, references and satisfied customers. Each concert presents an exciting showcase of The Eagles mega-hits such as “Take it Easy”, “Heartache Tonight”, and “Hotel California” as well as newer releases “Get Over It” and “Love will Keep Us Alive”. The group also performs select titles from the solo works of Don Henley, Glen Frey, and Joe Walsh. This timeless music is appealing to audiences of all ages, bringing back memories and touching the hearts of every generation. So join us now on a trip down a dark desert highway, feel the cool wind in your hair, and experience the Grammy Award winning sounds that defined a generation.

Napa City Nights Featuring Forejour, The Deadlies and Francessa Lee @ Veterans Memorial Park Amphitheater |

A Napa Valley Summer Tradition is back for 2016! Grab your blanket and picnic basket and head downtown this Friday for the kick off of the Napa Valley's best Summer concert series.

This week's artists:

Forejour

FOREJOUR pays tribute to the music of 80’s mega bands FOREIGNER & JOURNEY, recreating the soundtrack of a generation with stunning accuracy. Forejour’s set list includes the 20th century’s most down-loaded song, “Don’t Stop Believing”, as well as power ballads such as Foreigner’s “I Want To Know What Love Is”, and Journey’s “Faithfully”.

The Deadlies

The Deadlies bring a bright blast of sound evolving from the California surf scene and roadhouse honkytonks, and swing with free-wheelin’ references of the best of punk & rock – raw, real and FUN! The band features entertaining vocalist and rippin’ guitarist, James Patrick Regan, Napa Valley’s KVYN 99.3 FM “Good Morning, Bob!” radio host Bob St. Laurent grooving the bass! The two and their drummer rebrand the power-trio sound and are loaded for bear with chops and hooks making them the Deadli-est of Surf bands.

Francessa Lee

Confiding narratives and striking melodies illustrate the songs of Francesca Lee. Layered and lustrous, the music on her new full-length release, The Pieces Left, radiates from an organic center colored by electronic shadings and beats. As sonic light breaks through the opaque mist of a dense soundscape, the sound mirrors the drama of her locale: San Francisco, home to generations of visionaries. “Nothing is more dreamlike than the adventure of walking in this city,” she says. “I look out my window to see people in the street, a bus moving, a couple fighting on the corner, a homeless man. The inspiration for the album comes from what I visualize everyday.”

Napa City Nights

In the heart of downtown Napa is the renovated Veterans Memorial Park Amphitheater. Construction was completed in May 2008 as part of the Napa River Walk & flood control project. With Terraced seating areas, elegant lighting and beautiful views of the Napa River, the park is a unique venue for watching talented musicians and performers. Musical genres include Jazz, Rock, Country, World, Blues, Pop and Folk.

The Amphitheater is located along the Napa Riverwalk Promenade and is within easy walking distance from world class restaurants and distinctive shops. Nearby public transit and public parking make visiting the venue a breeze. Bring a blanket and a picnic basket and enjoy free entertainment the whole family will enjoy.

Justin Diaz @ Uva Trattoria | From his earliest years, Justin sang along, and it quickly became evident that he had a big voice and a keen musical ear. His musical reach expanded to the trumpet, drums, piano, ukulele and guitar, and by his teens he was writing and composing his own music. His smooth vocals made him a local favorite, destined to be the next American Idol sweetheart, but fame wasn't what he was after.

At 18, Justin pursued the deeper things in life, and moved to Japan and the UK to study. Upon graduation, he traveled extensively, and by age 24, Justin had visited 50+ countries and 49 states in his own way: slowly and curiously, staying in the homes of strangers that were destined to become good friends, savoring sunsets, and sharing truthful conversations over good wine.

In 2014, Justin returned to the Napa Valley to share his talents and stories. He currently performs on a variety of stages - from lounges, wineries and breweries, to weddings and dementia wards - and serves as a music therapist for the elderly. Justin also continues to travel widely as he pursues simplicity and substance through the medium of music.

HIS SOULFUL VOCALS BREATHE LIFE INTO DECADES OF CLASSICS AND ORIGINALS, AND BRINGS CLASS AND WHIMSY TO LOUNGES, TASTING ROOMS, WEDDINGS, AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN

Nashville's Sean McConnell w/special guest Andy Davis @ Silo's | “From a very young age, I just knew that I was gonna spend my life making music,” Sean McConnell states. “I never really questioned it, so I just forged ahead and didn’t let anything stop me.”

Although his self-titled new Rounder album will serve as his introduction to many listeners, the personable young artist is actually a seasoned, distinctive songwriter and an experienced performer with a quartet of D.I.Y. indie releases to his credit. Having built a substantial grass-roots fan base through tireless touring and old-fashioned hard work, McConnell is primed for a mainstream breakthrough.

Sean McConnell demonstrates exactly why McConnell has already won such a devoted audience. He writes vivid, forthright, effortlessly catchy songs whose incisive melodic craft is matched by their resonant emotional insight. Such instantly memorable tunes as “Holy Days,” “Beautiful Rose,” “Bottom of the Sea” and “Best We’ve Ever Been” are both catchy and personally charged, conveying an unmistakable sense of personal experience while exploring universal truths.

“This record’s a bit of a step for me,” McConnell asserts. “It’s a real storyteller record, and it’s pretty autobiographical. I’m learning how to be more honest and understated in my writing, and I wanted to match that sonically and vocally. When I look at this collection of songs, I see a lot of nostalgia, and looking back on sacred moments. I’m kind of nostalgic and reflective by nature.”

McConnell recorded the album in his adopted hometown of Nashville with producers Jason Lehning and Ian Fitchuk, who also contributed keyboards and drums, respectively. The recording took place prior to McConnell signing with Rounder, with the artist financing the sessions himself.

“This project started,” he explains, “when I went to a cabin by myself for a week, with the intention of writing some songs. In that week, I wrote about half of the songs on the record, and I could see the thread of what this record was gonna be. That was exciting for me, because it normally takes me a year to find an album’s worth of songs that belong together. The whole recording process was really fun and liberating, and the energy in the studio was really positive.”

Songwriting and music-making have been a part of Sean McConnell’s life for as long as he can remember. “My mom was a singer and my dad was a guitar player and songwriter,” he notes. “They’d play in coffeehouses and I’d go along and watch them perform, and seeing that lifestyle showed me that music was an option. And seeing my dad painstakingly writing songs had a huge influence on me, and gave me license to feel like I could enter into that world.”

By the age of ten, he had become proficient on guitar and was writing his first songs. “I fell in love with the instrument first,” McConnell recalls. “Learning guitar gave me a feeling of uncharted territory laid out in front of me. And as I got better on guitar, the songs started to come naturally. At around the same time, we moved from Massachusetts to Georgia, and the first song I wrote was about the feeling of leaving the familiar and feeling lost in a new place. Music gave me a focus and became an emotional outlet for me.”

His supportive family background helped to instill the confidence and drive to pursue his muse early on. “I started playing in middle school, doing any gig I could get just to get my chops up,” he says. “By high school, I would be doing local gigs and really promoting them, bringing out a couple hundred kids to my shows a few times a month and starting to make a decent living at it. That made me think that maybe I could do this in other towns. So I started traveling around the southeast a little bit, and there was always enough progress to take things to the next level. While I was in college, I did a lot of college touring, just me driving all over the United States in a Toyota Corolla. It was hard work, but it showed me that I could do it.”

McConnell was just 15 when he self-released his first album, Faces, in 2000. Followed by 2001’s Here In The Lost and Found, 2004’s 200 Orange Street, 2006’s Cold Black Sky, 2007’s Tell The Truth, 2008’s The Walk Around EP, 2010’s Saints, Thieves and Liars, 2012’s Midland and the 2014 EP The B Side Session.

Having spent much of his life honing his craft and paying his dues, Sean McConnell is eager to launch the next chapter of his career.

“I kind of feel like I’ve been in a really long boot camp,” he concludes. “I’m really grateful for that, because I feel like I’ve gained enough experience to know the deal and be prepared for anything. I’m excited to see where the next part of the journey takes me.”

Johnny Smith Live @ River Terrace Inn |

Join us for our live music series on the patio over-looking the Napa River and featuring some of the area's top talent.Johnny’s maturity as a musician is realized as his sultry, soulful voice weaves throughout songs reminiscent of sophisticated blues melded with upbeat rock tempos.

 
Artist Johnny Smith was born in Long Beach California in 1962. He began his musical life at a very young age. Born into a musical family, Johnny’s mother nurtured his vocal talents while his uncle and aunt, well known music icons Delaney & Bonnie Bramlett, provided musical mentoring and advice. But it was a televised performance of Elvis playing “Hound Dog” that truly inspired the 9 year old Smith to pick up the guitar and pursue a life of performance and by the age of 10, he was regularly invited to perform on stage with local professional musicians. Johnny eventually relocated to San Francisco and formed Alias Smith, a roots/rock influenced band which took first prize in a regional Battle of the Bands competition. Alias Smith’s debut CD by the same name garnered much praise, and helped the band to secure an 18 date tour throughout Sweden and Finland as well as stage performances alongside such reputable artists as The Beach Boys, Starship, Maria Muldaur, and Roger McGuinn to name a few.

Wishing to further his musical vision, Mr. Smith became a solo artist and released the album “Just a Man”. Johnny’s maturity as a musician is realized as his sultry, soulful voice weaves throughout songs reminiscent of sophisticated blues melded with upbeat rock tempos. The hit “Love Is like a Rock” became #1 on radio request lines, and the song “Fortune Teller” received honourable mention in the Napa Valley Music Festival Song Writers Competition. Johnny has won best performer 3 of 3 times at the Northern California Songwriters Association competition, and is a regular on live television and radio broadcasts. Through all of his successes, Smith has never lost “touch” with his roots and still performs on the original Martin D-35 that he’s been playing since age 12.

Johnny's Aunt Bonnie Bramlett co-wrote and performs , along with Johnny's cousin Bekka Bramlett, on "Never Even Thought About It", track number 5 on the 2009 album "Gentlemen X".

Steve Della Maggiora- Guitarist from Napa, California. Raised in the 50s and 60s, he absorbed not only songs his parents loved from the Big Band era (and Lawrence Welk Show) but also pop tune from the blossoming Top 40 Radio world. Both his parents were singers, and he was raised in a house full of music. Several years of accordion lessons left their mark, as did the bands he saw on the Ed Sullivan Show and American Bandstand. After high school he devoted himself to learning the guitar and bass, and began transferring his accordion skills to piano and organ (a process that is still ongoing today.)

Steve is a multi-instrumental, multi-talented musician. He plays guitar, bass guitar, piano, organ, and, when his arm heals up, accordion. He sometimes plays solo. He sometimes accompanies singers, in a variety of styles, especially melodic tunes from before the 20s and 30s right up through the 60s and 70s. (But he's pretty shaky on the more modern recent stuff!) Steve plays with a variety of groups: bass in a pop-folk-novelty duo; guitar with a classical and jazz violinist; organ, bass or guitar with a fine rock band; organ with an electric blues band; accordion, keyboards, guitar and sings with an Americana-Rock-Folk ensemble; plays guitar and sings with a blues/bluegrass/Django-ish quartet; plays guitar or accordion with a Mexican-American dance group; and guitar with a highly skilled Cool Jazz Octet. All of these groups play in the North Bay Area, as we call the counties to the north of San Francisco.

Often Steve seems happiest sitting with his guitar (acoustic or electric) and playing whatever you want to hear. If you'd like him to accompany you, he has a list of well over 1000 tunes he can play. (And the list seems to be getting longer every day!)
