Kathleen Grace arrow
Friday, March 13, 2015
8:00 PM

pay



Kathleen Grace has traveled the world sharing her pure sound and eclectic music with audiences from New York to South America. Long known as one of jazz's rising stars, Grace has now planted her jazz roots in the soil of classic country music. The result is what the SF Chronicle described as a "singer that mixes styles to create her own sound… a hybrid of country, jazz and classic torch song.”

Her latest album No Place To Fall, has been praised for its deep musicianship and its bold aim to stretch the notoriously conservative fields of both country and jazz music. The result is an organic and exhilarating new music held together by the thread of Grace’s stellar sound and honest story telling.
 
“To listen to Grace is to fall long and hard into a well of wonders” -  Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange
"Smart, alluring and evocative" - The Washington Post

Cash'd Out - Johnny Cash Tribute arrow
Saturday, March 14, 2015
8:00 PM

pay



Top-notch tribute to the Man in Black. The band strives to recreate music from Cash’s Columbia and Sun Records period, along with the famed live recordings Cash did at Folsom Prison and San Quentin. Consistently wins "Best Cover" and "Best Tribute Band" awards.
 
“For the most part, I don’t try to be Johnny Cash on stage,” says group founder and lead singer Douglas Benson. “I don’t come out and say, ‘Hello, I’m Johnny Cash,’ because I’m not.” Does he try to sound like Cash? “I try to a little bit, but, you know, it’s really the only way that I know how to sing.” Whether he’s trying to or not, Benson has the sound and even the essence of the Man in Black down cold.
