TONIGHT: MR. DECEMBER

A Sacramento party band and fast becoming a Torch Club favorite, Mr. December brings together five diverse talents to create a unique blend of blue soul with a funk rock twist.

TONIGHT: KB AND THE SLINGTONES, WITH NICKEL SLOTS

KB & The Slingtones are moving up fast as one of Sacramento’s favorite Rockabilly swing-dancing & Honky-Tonkin bands, with clean musical sounds, keeping with the traditions of the 1950’s. They originated in 2007 with lead singer “KB” and upright bass player “John E”. In 2009 guitarist, “Billy Clayton” joined the pack and in 2010, “Brandon Big Rigg Riggens”  filled the drummer’s shoes. This is a Rockabilly & Honky Tonk band that brings the 50’s back to life with influences of Patsy Cline, Janis Martin, Johnny Cash, Loretta Lynn, Wayne Hancock, Wanda Jackson, Elvis Presley and that’s just naming a few.

Tonight in a double bill, Nickel Slots joins as an alt-country, Americana-styled roots rock band out of Sacramento, formed in ’08 and can best be described as Johnny Cash country with a punk veneer.

 

 

TONIGHT: TRACORUM

Tracorum is an original Rock’n’Soul/Rhythm’n’Blues band from San Francisco, California. Serving as a touring and studio vehicle for the music of songwriter/pianist Fletcher Nielsen, epic live shows and original music are at the heart of this soul quenching, eclectic bay area talent. Steeped in traditional roots music the band has continued to create a positively unique sound that is the vast umbrella known as Tracorum.

TONIGHT: GOOD GRAVY

While reaching phenomenal energy levels with their acoustics, Good Gravy pushes their music even further when they use electrics. The artistry and intermittent use of the electrics produces a dynamic story throughout their live shows that is unparalleled. Captivating melodies, thick vocals, intriguing dynamics, and intense improv jams, this bands imagination is fresh in the live music scene. Good Gravy is said to “melt the heart, as well as the face.”

TONIGHT: RON HACKER

Hacker rolls in tonight, a long time Torch favorite out of San Francisco.  Get in here early and get ready for the heat.

TONIGHT: DIPPIN’ SAUCE

Hey, Everybody knows Dippin’ Sauce as THE bad a#@ local blues band that’ll get your butt moving on the dance floor quicker than a cricket with a wooden leg can kick the seeds off a dill pickle.  Yea.  Jus’t go with it.  See you here.

TONIGHT: ANDY FRASCO AND THE UN

Andy Frasco, a twenty four blues/jazz musician hailing from the San Fernando Valley in Southern California, is nothing short of an enigma. In the last five years, Andy has trekked over 150,000 miles, performing over 1000 shows spanning 6 countries. Andy got his start touring the country with VH1’s Save the Music Foundation, raising money for Music Education in the Public Schools.

TONIGHT: HOWELL DEVINE

Howell Devine is the kind of blues you don’t hear anymore. The slide guitar work evokes the Mississippi Hill Country greats such as Fred McDowell and RL Burnside while the rhythm section breaks from the norm in blues, providing rich and complex textures integral to the music rather than a simple backing section for a soloist. The resulting sound gives a new edge to the rural blues. They are the current winners of The Golden Gate Blues Society’s International Blues Challenge.

TONIGHT: STEVEN ROTH

With roots in the classics and an eye on innovation, Roth’s sound can best be described as a refreshing flavor of roots-rock/soul, filled with melody, mood, energy, and honesty.  Don’t miss him tonight.

TONIGHT: LARA PRICE

Lara Price has been playing the blues music scene for over a decade. She has toured internationally and has 5 CD’s under her belt. Her latest CD “Everything” received 4 out of 5 stars in Down Beat Magazine. Lara Price Blues Band returns to The Torch Club with guitar veteran Laura Chavez and an All-Star cast of musicians guaranteed to bring the house down!
