Sometimes Julie

November 30 @ 6:00 pm
Genre:
$5 cover

Sometimes Julie, one of San Diego’s most engaging and original rock bands, emerged from a chance collaboration between singer-songwriters Monica Sorenson and Rick Walker in 2012.

Walker, former guitarist for Chicago’s Greeley, is a multi-instrumentalist who reveals his rock and roll genius as he defines Sometimes Julie’s unique sound. Sorenson paints the pictures, finds the words, tells the stories, and delivers the melodies with her powerful vocals. Walker is the theory, the rhythm, the science, the skill, and Sorenson is the front woman who is all heart and art.

The duo’s first collaboration gave birth to their award-winning 2014 debut CD, HEAD FIRST, the title track of which generated substantial buzz, getting spins on both terrestrial and internet radio, and won an Akademia Music Award for best Americana music video. As implied, this album is all about being impulsive, taking risks, and doing what you love.

Sometimes Julie’s second release, the EP entitled BRIGHT SIDE OF THE LINE (2016), marked the duo’s evolution to a more rocking sound as they were joined by the eminently talented Berklee-grad Bruce Paul Allen (bassist/co-writer), and San Diego music scene legend, Anthony Sarain (keyboards, sax, flute). The songs on Bright Side speak to the power of intense love and profound loss.

Billy Watson

Billy Watson

December 10 @ 6:00 pm
Genre: Blues
$5 cover

Billy is an entertainer extraordinaire, capable of throwing down a blues show that can be infectiously hilarious and convincingly nasty. His energy as a frontman is relentless, his vocals inspiring, and his harp work musically outstanding. Billy’s repertoire ranges from creepy grooves, grinding shuffles, to fast boogies and swings. Yet audiences do not flock to his shows simply for his mastery of the harmonica… they are drawn by his magnetic stage personality and the idea of never knowing what antic may be next!

Blues music was created by people looking for a way to forget their “blues” by telling their stories through song. Billy’s show reminds modern audiences that blues music can be lowdown, but that in the end it’s all about having some fun, dancing, and forgetting about your worries.

December 10 @ 8:00 pm
Genre: Dance
$12 cover

The Detroit Underground  was established in 1994, and still has several of its original members. Over the years the band has earned the reputation for being a hard working, high energy, show band. The group features a very solid and funky rhythm section. These four seasoned players provide a solid foundation for the band’s “smokin” horns.

Topping it off are California’s best male and female lead vocalists. These two high-powered singers will light up the stage, and leave you singing their songs long after you leave the show.

This powerful combination of dedicated musicians gives the band the ability to crank out tunes from artists such as EARTH, WIND, and FIRE, CHAKA KAHN,and STEVIE WONDER. We also play great motown hits and heart-felt ballads.

ZB Savoy, Mike Butler, Patrick McClory and Matt Lynott are the Red Headed Strangers playing the music of… Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, The Highwaymen, Hank Williams, George Jones, Johnny Paycheck, Jimmy Rogers, David Allen Coe, George Straight, and many more…

RHS is not a traditional “tribute band”, but pays homage to Willie Nelson and the Outlaw Country genre he helped create, pulling from the same all American country songbook that Willie and friends have been pulling from for decades. As so many great performers have done before, these timeless songs (from as far back as the early 1900s) are the perfect canvas to deliver performances filled with world class musicianship and a sincerity, energy and authenticity that is uniquely the Red Headed Strangers.

Williams was a teenager when he opened for R&B acts Lakeside and Al Green along with gospel legend Shirley Caesar. After studying jazz at San Diego State University, Williams went from regular gigs backing many of San Diego’s most prominent homegrown talent to the neon lights of the Las Vegas strip where he accompanied such nationally-renowned headliners as Clint Holmes, Angela Bofill, Tevin Campbell, Howard Hewett and Keith Washington, and did a road stint with Chaka Khan. After moving back to California in 2008, Williams dropped his debut album, “That Was Then,” garnering praise from JazzTimes and national airplay on SiriusXM. He has become a fixture on the smooth/contemporary jazz scene where he has shared the stage with the genre’s heavy hitters: Richard Elliot, Peter White, Gerald Albright, Mindi Abair, Brenda Russell, Darren Rahn, Jessy J, Everette Harp and Jeff Kashiwa. He has also recorded with Jackiem Joyner, Blake Aaron, Nils Jiptner, U-Nam and Kay-Ta Matsuno.

December 13 @ 6:00 pm
Genre: Blues
$5 cover

Chickenbone Slim has been deeply rooted in the San Diego Blues scene for 30 years, first as a bassist, and since 2011 as a guitarist, vocalist and bandleader.  His sound is reminiscent of Johnny “Guitar” Watson in the Third Ward of Houston circa 1964–Chicago/Texas/Gulf Coast/Uptown Blues with an authentic 1950’s to 1960’s vibe.

By mixing original blues and swing music with traditional covers, Chickenbone’s shows are greasy, down-home, and entertaining, keeping the dance floor packed all night.  Chickenbone has been serving up his style of Blues throughout the Western U.S. to audiences hungry for the real deal.  Since he formed the band in 2012, Chickenbone has played over 1,500 performances, from the San Diego Blues Festival (2018), Gator By The Bay, Adams Ave Street Fair and Unplugged, and on tour throughout CA and AZ.

His newest CD, “Sleeper” (Lo Fi Mob Records ©2020) features ten all original modern blues songs that are soulful and unique, while adhering to authentic classic blues style.   Recorded at Greaseland Studios by Christoffer “Kid” Andersen, the disc balances on the line between originality and creativity with a deep understanding and respect for blues styles and history.  Along with its predecessors,   “Gone” (2015) and “The Big Beat” (2017), Sleeper is picking up rave reviews nationally, and internationally.

Chickenbone’s band, known as “The Biscuits”, is made up of top local and touring San Diego Blues musicians including Scot Smart or Laura Chavez on guitar, Marty Dodson on drums, and Andrew Crane on bass.  Special guests on “Sleeper” include Joey Harris (guitar/vocal), Jerry Rainey (guitar/vocal), and Troy Sandow (harmonica).  Chickenbone doesn’t like to name drop, but looking up his players will attest to their level of musicianship.
