7:30 pm – Carolyn Sills Combo – A Tribute To Patsy Cline

Carolyn Sills, along with her husband Gerard Egan, mix American musical styles. The cowboy-loving duo have attracted top Monterey Bay area players for their combo, featuring Charlie Joe Wallace on triple neck steel guitar, Jimmy Norris on drums and Sunshine Jackson on harmony vocals and percussion. Sills and Egan are heavily influenced by spaghetti western films as well as their vinyl record collection, citing a wide range of influences from Bob Wills, Patsy Cline, Merle Travis, and Les Paul & Mary Ford. Word of their authentic live show is spreading quickly throughout Northern California, chock full of three part vocal harmonies, dueling guitar and steel instrumentals and tight arrangements of their own distinct brand of Americana. “This is real, swinging, juke box music,” says Sills. “We’re tipping our hats to the music that made us want to play, and hoping our original takes on these classic styles will keep the genres moving forward.” General Admission $25.00 (advance) Gold Circle $35.00 (advance) Tickets $4 more on day-of-show (Gold Circle Seating is the first 3 rows center section; plus 2 aisle seats on each side.)
