Take some Latin percussion and add some old-school funk. Mix in a little reggae and R & B, and you have the recipe for the music you’re hearing now, performed by a Bay Area band named Vinyl. Vinyl’s musical mix-up provides the audience with plenty of fuel to dance -- and dance some more.
Vinyl performs on Saturday, July 26th at the Boom Boom Room on Fillmore Street in San Francisco. They start about 9:30pm.
This voice belongs to Jacqui Naylor of San Francisco. JazzTimes Magazine says Naylor “remains one of the most superbly arresting vocalists around."
Jacqui Naylor will be on stage Friday, July 18th at the SFJazz Center. She’ll be singing songs from her new album, which pays tribute to songwriters ranging from Johnny Mercer to Amy Winehouse. The lights go down about 7:30pm.
This music is samba music and it’s being played by SambaDá. The band started in Santa Cruz in the late Nineties, and has since gained a strong following for its high-energy shows. They give the audience plenty of opportunity to dance.
Does this sound like fun to you? Then have your dancing shoes laced up about 9:30pm on Saturday, June 21st when Samba-Da’ takes the stage at the 19 Broadway Club in Fairfax.
What’s this you’re hearing? Well, that’s easy: it’s the Blues! But what you might not know is, this is the Blues as sung by Tia Carroll of Richmond.
Tia Carroll is the guest vocalist with Grand Avenue Soul on Friday, June 20th. Their guarantee? You will be entertained. Show up at San Francisco’s Hotel Utah about 9:00pm to see them make good on that promise.
