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, FestivalPreview.com) 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).

Singer-songwriter Drew Harrison is one of those rare recording artists with the ability to translate life into song. His passionate, honest, and intense style resonates in the vein of Bono, Ritchie Havens and John Lennon.

In the Spirit of Lennon is Drew’s tribute to John Lennon, and interpretation of his music. He goes beyond just sounding like him, but captures the intensity that Lennon brought to the Beatles music as well as his own.

He leads a very successful, critically acclaimed band, The Sun Kings,in the San Francisco Bay Area and currently performs over 100 shows a year both solo and with his band. Drew’s solo performances and his ‘In the Spirit of Lennon’ shows have yielded much praise.
As a solo artist he has performed in Europe, South America, and in the States he’s been invited to open for such artists as Richard Thompson, Lyle Lovett, and Steve Miller to name a few. 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. The band’s concert, ‘Love Is the Answer –The Concert for John Lennon’ is a two and a half hour show presenting the concert John might have performed had he toured in 1982. 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.

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.

12/12/2021 - Rescheduled Due to Weather..."One Mad Apple" is Author Tom Pratt's Debut Novel! Book Signing on
Murphys, CA...We live in a divided country and in these tumultuous times, school board meetings have become an uncivilized forum for activists and angry parents to engage in public discourse on a variety of subjects from critical race theory, funding mental health programs, mask mandates, and in California the vaccine mandates for all children that attend public and private schools.




Tom Pratt, an elected school board member, releases his debut fictional novella One Mad Apple. It tells the story of the struggles and crazy crusade of an unlikely foe, a school board member who is out to destroy the book's central character as well as the peaceful town and its innocent children.

“In my first published work, I have taken a subject that is part of my life – being a local school board member – and taken creative license to craft a fictional story that especially in today’s volatile environment might not be so far out of the realm of possibility,” Pratt said.

One Mad Apple is available for purchase at https://bookstore.dorrancepublishing.com/one-mad-apple-ebook/
