The Laurie Morvan Band is here!

In keeping with a compelling theme in Sacramento (have you been out around the Capitol today or watching the news?) the Torch Club tonight continues a weekend of strong women on our stage. Tonight it’s the Laurie Morvan Band! Laurie is a top notch guitarist and songwriter backed by a great cast of players and is a multi-award winner including Best Self-Produced CD at the International Blues Challenge. If you’re looking for a great time and some great music tonight, you’ll find it here at the Torch Club.

It’s finally Friday

Big and brassy, bold and sassy is the way Kaye Bohler describes herself and there’s no one who can dispute that. She’s here at the Torch Club tonight with her powerhouse presence, big, dynamic vocals and kick-a$$ band. Join us for her take on classic blues-flavored soul and R & B. If you’ve seen her here before, you know exactly what I’m talking about. If you haven’t, well, what are you waiting for?

A little Jelly Bread for your Thursday night

Over the Sierra and down the hill from Reno, ¬†Jelly Bread comes blazing into Sacramento tonight to hit the Torch Club with their mix of original funky roots, soul, and rock. You’ve made it this far through the week and all you need is a little push, a little more energy to get to the weekend. This band will get you charged up for the rest of that trip!

They’re baaack! The Kerri Carr Band!

You say you didn’t get enough partying over the weekend? Well keep the fun going tonight at the Torch as the Kerri Carr Band returns. This year-old band threatens to become a regular thang here and features the former lead singer of Rowdy Kate. There’s lots of talent evident on our stage when this band performs. They have already developed quite a following and you should be among them. Yes. You. Tonight.

Island of Black and White is back!

Get your music week started at the Torch Club with a band that has become a local favorite in the last couple of years. The Island of Black and White is here for a return engagement. Tonight, you can catch one of the band’s high energy performances that’s hard to categorize. People that know them well say their music falls “somewhere in the middle of rock, acoustic, reggae, funk, soul, and blues”. Come find out for yourself!

The Golden Cadillacs are here tonight!

Hey, it’s not too late to add on to your Earth Day celebratory activities. Get on down to the Torch Club for an 8:00 show tonight and catch The Golden Cadillacs in a return engagement. Immerse yourself in their Honey Baked Country Soul for a few hours and just forget that tomorrow is Monday again.

The Coalition

Tonight, the members of The Coalition would like you to come out to the World Famous Torch Club to help celebrate the life of the late, great Levon Helm. His influence has stretched far and wide for many years, so help us make this Levon Helm night and keep your weekend rolling, just like he did at his jam sessions in the Barn in Woodstock, NY. Let’s get ready to RAMBLE!

Jeff Jones tonight!

A crowd favorite in the Tahoe, California region, the Jeff Jones Band presents an intriguing blend of loose, R&B-tinged blues-rock √† la the Faces with a Dave Matthews-like pop jam band veneer, all topped off by Jeff Jones’ stellar slide guitar skills and his strong, slightly hoarse vocals which bear a strong resemblance to Chris Robinson’s vocal work with the Black Crowes. A great way to get the weekend started!

Grant Farm rolls in tonight

For your Wednesday night, the Torch Club brings Grant Farm from Colorado for your dancing and listening pleasure. Their self-described sound is Roots, Rock and CRIS-CO! A play of a few tracks from their website reveals influences of folk, bluegrass, country disco and slide guitar with some Derek Trucks/Allman Brothers tones. Come in and have a listen!

West of Next tonight.

It’s Tuesday and time to start your music week again. Tonight’s headliners are West of Next, whose music is based on a new approach called Western Rock and Bop. If you can picture original compositions from “an era that hasn’t happened yet”, you know exactly what I’m talking about. What? You don’t? Well then you had just better get on down to the Torch tonight to find out!
