02/07/2020 - Ray Bonneville with Richie Lawrence – Song and groove blues
Ray recorded his first album, On the Main, in 1992 and earned wide critical and popular acclaim, winning an enthusiastic following in the U.S., Canada, and Europe. His awards include a prestigious Juno, the Canadian equivalent of a Grammy, for his 1999 album, Gust of Wind. In 2012, Ray won the solo/duet category in the Blues Foundation’s International Blues Challenge in Memphis. His post-Katrina ode, “I Am the Big Easy,” from his 2007 Red House Records release, Going By Feel, earned the International Folk Alliance’s 2009 Song of the Year Award, placing number one on Folk Radio’s list of most-played songs of 2008, and has recently been covered by Jennifer Warnes on her new album,Another Time, Another Place(May 25th, 2018 BMG).Other notable artists who have recorded his songs include Ronnie Hawkins (“Foolish”) and Slaid Cleaves (“Run Jolee Run”). Ray has shared the bill with heavyweights Muddy Waters, B.B. King, Dr. John, J.J. Cale, and Robert Cray, and has guested on albums by Mary Gauthier, Gurf Morlix, Eliza Gilkyson, Ray Wylie Hubbard, and other prominent musicians.
Bonneville strips his bluesy Americana down to itsessentials and steeps it in a humid, southern vibe, creating a compelling poetry of hard living and deep feeling. Rich guitar and harmonica lines resonate over spare and infectious rhythms, while Bonneville’s deep, evocative voice confesses life’s harsh realities, delivered with his trademark grit and groove.
“Richie has mastered the ability to take Roots Americana in its most August lazy and yet make it seem fresh. It is strange and wonderful.” – Dan Collins, L.A. Record

02/01/2020 - An Evening with Bill Champlin and Special Guest Tamara Champlin- Grammy winning rock, funk, and R&B
Two-time GRAMMY® Award Winner Bill Champlin is known the world over as the soulful singer/keyboardist of the iconic jazz-pop band Chicago. His featured spots on the hits “Look Away” and “Hard Habit to Break” are among his mainstream highlights. But his Songwriting put him on the map and the band he started in the late 60’s called “The Sons of Champlin.”
In 1979, he won his first Grammy® award for co-writing “After the Love is Gone”, which was later recorded by Earth, Wind & Fire. Then in 1981, he won a second Grammy® for co-writing “Turn Your Love Around” for George Benson.
The Sons of Champlin released their first album, “Loosen Up Naturally” in 1969 and followed with six more albums through 1977. In 1982, Bill joined Chicago to record Chicago 16 where he remained for 28 years as lead vocalist/keyboards. In 1988, Chicago released its biggest-selling single and their last No. 1 hit, “Look Away,” featuring Bill on lead vocal.

02/01/2020 - Sender's Market One Day Meat Bonanza is February 1st
Mountain Ranch, CA...Sender's Market One Day Meat Bonanza is February 1st. Shop and Save!!

02/08/2020 - Comedian Liz Grant to headline at Wine and Whimsy on February 8th, 2020
Angels Camp, CA...Liz Grant, a Bay Area comedian will let loose at Wine and Whimsy on February 8th at The Metropolitan in San Andreas. The event, presented by Soroptimist International of Calaveras County, promises to provide an evening of laughter, friendship and wine while benefitting the many local Soroptimist programs.
Soroptimists present education and training awards for women, career support for girls and promote health by offering free lipid panel screenings to Calaveras County women for the entire month of February in partnership with Dignity Health Mark Twain Medical Centers.


This year’s Wine and Whimsy will bring the hilarity to the historic Metropolitan. Originally a hotel, The Met was built at the base of Main Street in San Andreas in 1859. A fire consumed the building in 1926, and in its place a movie theater was constructed in the early 1950s. It was later renovated as a dining hall and performance venue.

Rumor has it that Mark Twain found his inspiration for The Jumping Frog right in the Metropolitan’s luxurious bar-room.

Wine and Whimsy tickets are now available on-line at http://sicalaverascounty.org or by calling 209-753-9700. Admission, including a no-host bar and light appetizers, is $45. Doors open at 6:30 and the show begins at 7:30.
01/18/2020 - Jill & The Giants Will Rock Your World on January 18th
Arnold, CA...Sequoia Woods Country Club is located on the western slope of the Sierra Nevada mountains, roughly between Lake Tahoe and Yosemite National Park, at an elevation of 4000 feet. The club house is open to the public, with a bar and lounge, dining room and seasonal deli. The beautiful setting can be enjoyed from indoors or outside on the deck, with a view down the main tree-lined golf fairway.



The bar serves food several evenings each week and the restaurant is open for dinner every weekend. The dinner menu has a perfect variety of traditional favorites, with creative and contemporary preparations, and our guests marvel at the quality of cuisine to be found here, in this little mountain hamlet. There is dancing in the lounge every Saturday night, with a DJ or frequent live bands. The deli opens its windows to the deck for an extended summer season, with tasty sandwiches, salads and hot specials. Special group events find our venue especially accommodating and fun. This is a truly lovely place to enjoy good food, good friends and good scenery.

01/12/2020 - Cantamos Opens Ovations Winter Concert Season
Angels Camp, CA...The first concert of the Ovations winter concert season at the Bret Hart Performing Arts Center will be the band Cantamos, a popular local band that refuses to be put in a genre box with their mix of big band, rock, rhythm and blues, folk, pop, and even classical music. “We’re so hard to describe,” said Macfarlane. “We have an eclectic mix of our favorite songs. In the past we’ve moved from arias to Latin favorites, to contemporary pop songs.” Indeed, Michela leads the band seamlessly across the world music landscape with a cheerful whirlwind of songs like the Brazilian bosso nova hit “Corcovado” and the German/Yiddish big band romp “Bei Mire Bist Du Shön,” as well as rollicking Aretha Franklin covers and the novelty song “Mambo Italiano.”



Cantamos isn’t restricted to English. Macfarlane is a musical polyglot; their concerts can feel like a world tour. “My favorite thing is to sing in a bunch of different languages. Italian, French Spanish, Portuguese,” she said. Chestnut kitschy pop songs like “These Boots are Made for Walking” shine when Macfarlane sings them in French. And Cantamos covers a variety of unusual material, like their rendition of Pink Martini’s “Je ne Veux Pas Travailler (Sympatique).”

The eight piece group is blessed with a line up of talent to back Macfarlane: Fred Treece on guitars and vocals, Tonja Peterson on vocals and percussion, Ray Price on drums and percussion, and Ron Schaner on bass and vocals mix it up with the horn section—Ras Beeken Dan on sax, flute, and clarinet, Gunther Hsue on trumpet (he also plays keyboard), and Matt Albright on Trombone.

“It can be tricky to play with a horn section,” Macfarlane admitted. “Especially with my vocal range, which is pretty high. A lot of times the vocals can get lost. That’s been one of the challenges.” But she said that the horns, led by Beeken, make it work. “It’s so awesome to have that full section that a horn section brings. There are so many possibilities.”

Macfarlane said that each musician contributes to the band’s material by bringing in their favorite pieces. “Each of our songs has a special meaning to at least someone in our group, for example Ray brought in Corcovado, Ron brought in Sara Bareilles’ “Love Song” and Gunther brought in Sting’s “La Belle Dame Sans Regrets.” Whatever memory or desire they have connected to it we then make it our own collective effort and polish it into a rendition that speaks to all of us.”

“We are presenting our usual eclectic repertoire mix,” Macfarlane said, “but we’re breathing new life into it. Gunther Hsue and I will do a Mozart aria from Le Nozze di Figaro, new to our show. Tonja, Fred, and I will also be doing a couple new songs with gorgeous harmonies, pieces that you just don’t hear every day.”

“I think one of the most important things we are doing for this show is coming up with fresh arrangements for our songs that harness the talent of all of us on stage in such a way that features as many moments of brilliance as possible.”

The Calaveras County Arts Council presents Cantamos
Sunday, January 12
3 to 5 p.m.
Tickets: $25 adults/$10 under 18. Available online at www.calaverasarts.org, or call 209/753-0127 Monday through Thursday.
