Or “little big show.”
Tomorrow (Wednesday) evening I’ll be back at Sacramento’s famous Torch Club (904 15th Street, between I and J Streets) with the Ukulele Rob Trio, featuring Dean Chance on bass and John Wilusz on chromatic harmonica and vocal harmony. We’ll be appearing as the “Feature” for Sandra Dolores’ weekly Acoustic Open Mic. We’ll be doing six great standards, including some Frank Sinatra hits that weren’t on our set-list for our December show.
We’ll be performing from 7:00 to 7:30 p.m., but the Open Mic gets started at 5:30, and always brings out lots of great musicians. And best of all, no cover charge. (If you play an instrument or sing, show up, sign up, and perform some songs!) More info about the Open Mic and our Feature in my February 26th blog post. Information about the Torch Club, Sacramento’s premier blues bar, is at www.torchclub.net. And info about our Open Mic hostess is at www.sandradolores.com.
Sorry, but the Torch Club is an over-21-only venue. Full bar with friendly, skilled bartenders and reasonable drink prices, but no kitchen. However, on one side of the Torch Club is Zen Sushi, and on the other, the Republic Bar & Grill. Go in and order some great food, and the nice folks at either restaurant will bring it right to your table at the Torch Club when it’s ready.
Finally, make a night of it! The 9:00 p.m. show tomorrow night is Sacramento’s own Keri Carr Band, featuring Keri, western swing guitarist and vocalist Geoff Miller, R.W. and Beth Grigsby (R.W. on bass, Beth on vocals), Steve Randall playing the hottest Telecaster® this side of Bakersfield, and the ready-steady Larry Carr on drums. There’ll be a small cover charge – only $5 – but it’ll be a tremendous value. Great music. Information about Keri & crew at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Keri-Carr-Band/215994601778293
Hope you can make it!
