TONIGHT: THE GOLDEN CADILLACS

Hey..  Fact is we’re fast running short on warm Sunday Summer nights.  Don’t let this one pass you by..  Roll in tonight for the Golden Cadillacs.

TONIGHT: SISTA MONICA

The lovely and powerful Sista Monica Parker is in tonight, bringing the sweet sounds of Gospel-Soul-Blues as only Ms. Parker can. Come on in, don’t bother to sit..  You’ll be dancing all night anyhow.

TONIGHT: CON BRIO

Powered by the strikingly soulful vocals of Xandra Corpora, San Francisco’s Con Brio (“with vigor” or “spirit”) blends old-school grit with new-school sophistication for a sound that’s wholly their own. The instrumentation is timeless: saxophone and trumpet roll over thick organ grooves while guitar, bass and drums keep heads nodding and the dance floor moving. A lesser singer could be forgiven for getting lost in the mix, but Corpora stands out. Her rich and powerful voice is the first thing to grab you, but it is the raw honesty and sincerity of the lyrics that stay with you long after the club goes dark..

Tonight: CANDYE KANE

(  an’ you not gonna believe who’s coming with her….   )

TONIGHT: BLEEDIN’ HEARTS

The Bleedin’ Hearts are a high octane, honky tonk combo that perform spirited renditions of vintage honky tonk classics that have long been gone, but certainly not forgotten. Their approach conveys a distinctly modern sensibility that combines elements of Rockabilly, Psychobilly and Insurgent Country, while staying firmly rooted in the country tradition. From drinking songs to honky tonk upstarts, the Bleedin’ Hearts will have you crying’ in your beer and twirling on the dance floor. Although, not necessarily in that order.
