Friday August 28 ~ 2-Bit Palomino ~ Dave Stratton & Bill Wolfe ~
8:00 pm: 2-Bit Palomino is a trio of Houston Singer/Songwriters - Andi Renfree, Ren Renfree and Bill Ward. Founded in March of 2010, 2BP (as their fans call them) have made huge strides and are quickly becoming a household name in Texas Music, and across the country. 2-Bit Palomino is the 2011 and 2013 recipient of the Vocal Group of the Year award from the Academy of Texas Music.
The trio recently signed with Howlin’ Dog Records to release their third studio album titled “Things I Dream About”. Produced by veteran engineer and multi-instrumentalist Don Richmond, the new CD is a collection of beautifully written songs that will take you on a melodic journey highlighted by the groups award-winning harmonies.
Each of the members brings their own flair and style to the group. Their music is a blend of all three coasts; West Coast, Gulf Coast and East Coast. This diversity lends to a very wide range of styles that somehow all come together to form a unified sound that is uniquely 2-Bit Palomino.
9:20pm: Dave and Bill do oldies and folk song favorites. Coffeehouse favorites including songs from Gordon Lightfoot and more.
Admission tonight is $8. Doors open at 7:15 pm...
Saturday August 29 ~ ARIZONA WATER SENTINELS BENEFIT CONCERT! ~
Arizona’s rivers need you! And you can help just by enjoying some great music in a great venue for a great cause: The Sierra Club - Grand Canyon (Arizona) Chapter Arizona Water Sentinels! Music will be flowing all evening, from Pick and Holler with Old Time Appalachian music, The Strand, with folk, traditional and Irish tunes, and De Mairt Coel, a group of Irish traditional musicians who are the resident band for the third Friday ceili dances at the Phoenix Irish Cultural Center, and can be found playing at the various sessions in the valley.
Water is life in the desert. Arizona's rivers and streams have been impacted by pollution, diversion, groundwater pumping and erosion. The Arizona Water Sentinels Program is doing hands-on conservation work to protect Arizona’s precious waters. Their mission is to protect, improve, and restore Arizona rivers and streams. They collect water quality data, perform stream clean-ups, work on invasive species eradication, conduct revegetation projects and monitor water policies at the state and federal levels and speak up for the health of our rivers!
Steve Pawlowski had a true passion for nature and the outdoors, and especially our rivers. He dedicated his life to making the world a better place. Steve coordinated last years benefit, which was a big success, and we had talked about making it an annual event. Steve passed away before that could happen, but we would like to honor his life and his work, and his love of music, and have that party we talked about!
We will be starting with Jennifer Martin, Water Sentinels Program Coordinator for the Sierra Club. Jennifer has taken up the torch so beautifully carried by Steve! She and a couple of friends will kick the event off, with lots more music to follow!!
A donation of $25 is requested, which will help the Water Sentinels continue their good work.
Doors open at 7:15pm..
