Bob Castell Blanch @ Uva Trattoria |
Bob Castell-Blanch has worked as a professional guitarist for over twenty-five years throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. The electric and acoustic guitar along with a computerized soundtrack is at the heart of the music he performs. He uses the latest technologies to record and mix these sound tracks to a computer format, which he plays back through a small sound system during performances. This results in giving the live performance a quality rivaling anything played on the "smooth jazz" radio channels today.
His style of music ranges from light jazz to standard jazz to R&B by artists such as Antonio Carlos Jobim, George Benson, Carlos Santana, the Rippingtons, Sting, Toni Braxton, The Yellow Jackets, Whitney Houston, Miles Davis, Earth Wind & Fire, plus some of his own original material. He successfully blends his electric and acoustic guitars to create an atmosphere that is pleasing to audiences ranging from a cocktail environment and extending to that of a concert setting. Bob Castell-Blanch has recorded and performed with such artist as Narada Michael Walden, Sister Sledge, Stacy Lattisaw, Pete Escovedo, Sheila E., Carl Carlton, Ammi Stewart, Wayne Wallace, The PHDS and many others. He currently is actively involved in production work and song writing in his recording studio at his home as well as performing live throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.
JANIS IAN AND TOM PAXTON @ City Winery Napa |
In her fifth decade of writing songs and performing, Janis Ian won her second Grammy Award of 9 total nominations in 8 categories over the years! Her 2013 Grammy, presented at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony, is for Best Spoken Word Album for her audio book "Society's Child” (Audible.com). She had stiff competition: President Bill Clinton, First Lady Michelle Obama, Rachel Maddow and Ellen DeGeneres. Like most everything she does, “We did the entire thing live, including the singing and playing. No edits, no overdubs, no recording studio.” When she won, she sincerely considered it to be a “stunning upset.” With her inimitable sense of humor, she went on to say "There must be a joke in here somewhere. An ex-president, a First Lady and three lesbians go into a bar..."
Tom Paxton has become a voice of his generation, addressing issues of injustice and inhumanity, laying bare the absurdities of modern culture and celebrating the tenderest bonds of family, friends, and community.In describing Tom Paxton’s influence on his fellow musicians, Pete Seeger has said: “Tom’s songs have a way of sneaking up on you. You find yourself humming them, whistling them, and singing a verse to a friend. Like the songs of Woody Guthrie, they’re becoming part of America.” Pete goes on: “In a small village near Calcutta, in 1998, a villager who could not speak English sang me What Did You Learn In School Today? in Bengali! Tom Paxton’s songs are reaching around the world more than he is, or any of us could have realized. Keep on, Tom!”

Drive-By Truckers Dirt Underneath Tour @ Uptown Theatre |
Back in 2007, Drive-By Truckers did a series of shows called The Dirt Underneath. It was conceived as an acoustic tour that soon morphed into more of a halfway acoustic tour. DBT re-arranged and reinvented songs, pulled out songs that usually don’t get played added more banter and story-telling and worked on new material with the audience in tow. The tour was a great success and a lot of fun and although DBT talked of doing it again, it was never the right time or situation. Until now.
The Drive-By Truckers Dirt Underneath Tour at Uptown Theatre on April 25th will include songs from their latest album and toy with some old favorites in a different way, and maybe even work up some new ones along the way. Audience will feel like they are receiving their own personal house show right in their own living rooms by providing a more intimate performance for old and new fans alike.
