News and Information from Amador County


10/02/2021 - Rita Hosking Trio at the Sutter Creek Theatre
Doors at 6:00, open seating, beer and wine available. $19 advance / $22 day of show.

Rita has just released her latest album “Live From Lockdown.”

Rita Hosking sings of forest fires, culture clash, dishes, rivers, black holes and hope. An award-winning and prolific songwriter characterized as “here and now” by The Observer, her stories, songs and soul-stirring, country-folk voice are partnered with longtime collaborator and multi-instrumentalist Sean Feder on dobro, banjo and guitar. Together, they deliver what Acoustic Magazine calls “timeless, unhurried elegance.”
Rita’s style of country-folk has been lauded for story and sense of place, and her performances praised with capturing the audience. “This California girl comes by her mountain music sensibility with true authenticity, with original songs deeply rooted in her family’s frontier experience,” (Dan Ruby, and her fans call her “the real deal.” A descendant of Cornish miners who sang in the mines, Rita grew up with deep regard for folk music and the power of the voice.
The music she produces today is an amalgamation of her university studies, teaching experience, motherhood, and the humanity that has moved her since her childhood in the hard-hitting mountains of Northeastern California. “She burns with a controlled intensity” (Lonesome Highway.)

Sean Feder plays dobro, banjo, various guitars, percussion, and sings with Rita as her primary accompanist. His three decades of music performance have been eclectic with a strong penchant towards everything rooted in rhythm. His music career includes collaborative performance and recording projects with several notable rhythmic and melodic masters, such as Arthur Hull (Village Music Circles), Hershel Yatovitz (of Chris Isaak), and Joe Craven. Sean ably serves the groove and melody in order to reveal and kindle the spirit of the music.

The award-winning historic Sutter Creek Theatre is an intimate 215 seat former silent film theatre with superb sound. Voted Best Indie Theatre multiple times (KCRA A-List).
10/09/2021 - Tony Lindsay's Soul Soldiers at the Sutter Creek Theatre
Doors 6 pm show 7 pm open seating, beer and wine available.

This will be a fabulous evening of soul and R&B hits of Marvin Gaye, Bill Withers, Donny Hathaway, Lou Rawls, Sam Cooke, Aretha Franklin, Nancy Wilson, and Etta James!

After 25 years as the lead vocalist for Santana, Tony Lindsay has garnered 11 Grammy awards, traveled on several world tours and recorded on eight CDs.

Vocalist Fred Ross was born and raised in San Francisco has been playing in the Bay Area for 35 or so years with some of the best local Bands in the Bay, like Tower of Power! He has appeared at the theatre in Soul 4 the Season as well as for this show. He has recorded with Aretha Franklin, Boz Scaggs, Narada Michael Walden, PeeWee Eills, Fred Wesley and many more.

Janice Maxie Reid is a world class vocalist and keyboardist from the San Francisco Bay Area. Her musical delivery is a captivating fusion of jazz, blues, gospel and soul. Her distinctive four-octave voice range, fierce keyboard skills and engaging stage presence make her a unique “one woman band.” She nearly stole the show last year with her renditions of Aretha Franklin hits!

Rounding out the line up is Allen Leong on keyboards and vocals, David Jones on bass, David Stuhl on guitar, and Deszon Claibourne on drums.

This was a killer show last time that nearly sold out, the vocals alone are amazing, and the musicianship is excellent.

Drew’s abilities as a multi talented performer have earned him fans throughout the world and his critically acclaimed solo release, Go it Alone, has enjoyed robust success.

Drew also leads The Plastic Fauxno Band, and 9-piece tribute to John Lennon’s solo work.

It feature ssongs from his entire solo career, respectfully performed by veteran musicians from bands like The Doobie Brothers, The Rubinoos, Todd Rundgren Band and more.

Somewhere among all of this Drew has found time for stage, TV, film, and completing a degree at UC Berkeley,adhering to a simple philosophy of living life fully, and giving back when one can.
