Monday, September 9, 7:00 & 9:00 PM Bill Evans’ Soulgrass feat. Steve Kimock, Tim Carbone & Jeff Pevar $25/Adv $28/Door DANCE SPACE AVAILABLE! No Comps Doors and dinner beginning at 6:00 PM “…a supergroup of virtusoso musicians…” – NP Following in the footsteps of his former bandleader/mentor Miles Davis, saxophonist Bill Evans has always pushed the envelope, presenting an adventurous and bold mix of jazz, rock, and pop elements, with a funky backbone. Evans stepped into more adventurous territory with his 2006 Grammy nominated release Soulgrass, blending jazz, funk, and bluegrass into a seamless and wholly unique hybrid of quintessentially American styles. The band’s 2011 Dragonfly album, continues to blend the intricacies of bluegrass and jazz with the attitude and power of rock. Hailed by Jerry Garcia as “his favorite unknown guitarist,” Steve Kimock has been a staple of the Bay Area jam-band scene for decades. Kimock’s ability to articulate tone, melody and emotion into music combined with technical brilliance has earned Kimock the title “Guitar Monk”(Relix Magazine) for his commitment to guitar, and his ability to make it speak with its own original voice.  On violin Tim Carboneis a master of his instrument. Carbone has been a member of the progressive bluegrass band Railroad Earth since its inception in 2001. Jeff Pevar is a guitarist, composer, producer, performer and multi-instrumentalist who has brought his unique style on stage and/or in the studio to such world renowned artists as Crosby, Stills & Nash, Ray Charles, James Taylor, Kenny Loggins, Joe Cocker, Jefferson Starship, Phil Lesh and Friends, Rickie Lee Jones, Jazz Is Dead, CPR (w/ David Crosby & James Raymond)...

Friday, September 6, 9:00 PM Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks “Live at Davies” $22/Adv $25/Door Doors at 8:30 PM Co-Sponsored by KPIG 107.5 FM “… musical virtuosity mixed with wit.” – The International Review of Music Hicksters rejoice! Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks continue to tour the U.S. in support of his new album, Live at Davies (Surfdog Records). The album is a fantastic collection of compelling and witty tunes that show why Tom Waits called him “fly, sly, wily, and dry!”  In honor of the eternal hipster himself, dozens of stars appeared on stage to celebrate Dan Hicks’ 70th birthday!  A sold-out crowd at San Francisco’s Davies Symphony Hall enjoyed an incredible evening featuring guest appearances by Rickie Lee Jones, Harry Shearer, Maria Muldaur, Van Dyke Parks, Tuck and Patti, John Hammond, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, and many others! We captured the best of the night with this live CD. It includes several of Dan’s biggest hits as well as some never before released live! As the author of several classic tunes, I Scare Myself, Where’s The Money?, How Can I Miss You When You Won’t Go Away?, and Canned Music, Hicks’ songwriting style infuses the steady 4/4 guitar swing of Django Reinhardt with the lyrical wit of Fats Waller and the country blues of Jimmy Rogers. Hicks calls it Folk Swing, but whatever you call it, it’s finger-pickin’ fun. Climb aboard the train to Hicksville…and don’t look back!
