Before these gentlemen combined their musical talents, they put their musical dreams aside and carried out separate careers to raise and support their families.  A chance one-off gig brought band leader MAURICE KITCHEN together with four other phenomenal vocalists, and a band was born.

Their talent and stage performance drew fast attention.  Singles off their CD, "Life Could Be a Dream" ranked from # 1-17 in multiple categories on Billboard.biz and they opened stages for Stevie Wonder, Otis Williams's Temptations, Diane Reeves, Chuck Berry, Lalah Hathaway, and Boyz II Men. By 2013 they found themselves in a cappella heaven as select contestants on NBC's hit show, "The Sing Off,” making it more than half-way through the season!

From Sam Cooke and Otis Redding classics and more, STREET CORNER RENAISSANCE'S soulful, velvety voices blend together in classic a cappella doo-wop melodies, transporting audiences back in time.  

The Grand Annex welcomes Maurice, Kwame, Sonny, Tony, and Torre back to San Pedro!  Their music is guaranteed to life your spirits.

Andy & Renee with Hard Rain
The Music of The Last Waltz
The Band's final concert

Saturday, September 12, 2015
8:00 PM

pay



With their band HARD RAIN and special guests, ANDY & RENEE recreate a live performance of The Band’s legendary Last Waltz concert. 

Southbay's favorite rockers, Andy & Renee tour extensively as a duo or with their band, Hard Rain. Their original music shows their passion for the founding masters of folk-rock – Dylan; Crosby, Stills & Nash; Laura Nyro; Neil Young and others.  Their tribute to The Band a is note-for-note journey into the work of one of the most musically significant, listenable, danceable and familiar roots-rock group of the 1960s and ‘70s.

Long before the boys of Mumford & Son or Old Crow Medicine Show hit the scene, The Band was blending blues, jazz, folk, country, rockabilly, and soul to make some of the most well-crafted, powerful roots rock arrangements of the late 1960s. The Band came together as backing band for Canadian rockabilly performer Ronnie Hawkins and then made a seminal career move to become Bob Dylan’s band. From there they became a headlining act, paying homage to their beginnings by calling themselves The Band and delivering for all time such icons of song: The Weight, Up on Cripple Creek, Ophelia, The Night They Drove Ol' Dixie Down, The Shape I’m In and more.

Their final concert was held on October 30, 1976 at the Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco, California and featured a stunning cast of guests including Ronnie Hawkins and Bob Dylan. The concert was recorded by friend of the band, filmmaker Martin Scorsese.  A year later, Scorsese’s exquisite documentary film, entitled The Last Waltz was released and has since become a touchstone for an era that delivered roots rock into the American conscience.

From Wharf Rats to Lords of the Dock arrow
Saturday, October 24, 2015
8:00 PM

pay



Royal Academy of Dramatic Art actor and playwright, Ian Ruskin returns to the San Pedro stage to portray legendary union organizer Harry Bridges, capturing his spirit and sharp sense of humor in the his-man play, “From Wharf Rats to Lords of the Docks.”

Ruskin’s performance brings to life Harry Bridges, who rallied for the longshoremen, the self-proclaimed “Wharf Rats,” along San Francisco’s piers and subsequently founded the ILWU – the International Longshore and Warehouse Union. This vivid dramatization features Bridges’ own words, from rallying speeches of the 1930s to his electrifying testimony at his own trials, plus eye-witness accounts of his contemporaries. 
 
Born in England, Ruskin came to the U.S. in his thirties, and has since created stage performances that deeply reflect American culture.  He has performed his Wharf Rats play over 200 times, for more than 50,000 people. The film version of the 2001 Warner Grand live performance, directed by Academy Award winner Haskell Wexler, regularly airs on PBS, making the story of Harry Bridges available to millions.

“Harry Bridges is one of the most important labor leaders of the 20th century and Ian Ruskin has captured him in his one-man show-- his persona, his ideas -- brilliantly. There were times when I forgot this was someone other than Harry Bridges speaking. It is a valuable piece of working-class history, presented colorfully and intelligently."  Howard Zinn, Historian, Playwright and Social Activist
