"Rock, roll, rhythm, and blues is what we started with in the early 60’s......we listened to and played it all. Music was not so focused as it is today. People danced and enjoyed it; musicians experimented. Call it what you like, it’s me and my friends doing what we do......”

Do you like the Blues? Do you like old school R&B? Do you like real Rock? You will love the Bob Gonzalez Band!

Andre Thierry: Friday, May 4th @ 7:00pm

andre-thierry_400x200

2013 Grammy® nominee Andre Thierry is a phenomenal talent who has been capturing the attention of other musicians and music lovers since he was a young boy. Thierry’s French creole heritage is deeply rooted in Louisiana although he was born and raised in northern California.

At only 32 years old, Thierry is already a legend. There is widespread agreement that he is an exceptional multi-dimensional musician who has a finely honed ability to merge traditional zydeco music with hip-hop, blues, jazz and rock. Building from his love and respect for traditional zydeco, his original music is a blend of old and new. His musical mastery enables him to create a unique sound for his and future generations while staying true to the past.

The “King of Zydeco,” the late great Clifton Chenier, grabbed the three-year old Thierry by the arms and deemed him a future accordion player. Andre was captivated—and when local musician Billy Wilson (currently with MotorDude Zydeco) gave him his first accordion, he began teaching himself to play by listening to Chenier’s music.

Andre Thierry can't be lumped into zydeco's old-school R&B-influenced camp or its nouveau, rap-inspired one: He and his band, Zydeco Magic, lay down both soulful, traditional slow-dances and bottom-end-booming kinetic groovers.

p_kent2

Paul was born in Brooklyn but spent most of his youth in Rockland County, New York, moving to Palo Alto, California in his teens. His musical influences include Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Southside Johnny, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Billy Joel, 60's Stax and Motown groups. His guitar influences are Eric Clapton, Mike Campbell, Joe Bonamassa, Chuck Berry, James Burton and Pete Townshend. 

Paul plays a custom Scott Lentz Telecaster, Fender Telecasters and occasionally a Gibson Les Paul guitar through Fender Bassman and VOX AC30 amps. 

"Rock & Soul music is very important to a lot of people. Of course it's entertainment and is fun, but the personal connection that people have to timeless songs is very intense - that's what makes it timeless! Much of the fun in what we do is seeing people singing along, pumping their fists, or just smiling from ear to ear when we launch into a song that has that personal connection for them, or evokes a great memory - whether it was last week, last summer, or years ago. The magic moments are when a whole audience connects to a song and you can tell we're all connecting to a special time in our lives."

Jerry Sauceda: Tuesday, April 24th @ 6:00pm

Drummer Stephen Marley has a special affinity for the traditional jazz trio comprised of piano, bass and drums. A retired ad photographer, Stephen often uses the analogy of a camera tripod to describe the synergistic potential of this trio format. “The tripod’s three legs give it incredible strength and adaptability - each leg is vital, yet each functions independently - raising or lowering to adjust to very different terrains. The piano, bass, drum trio allows the musical legs to interact in a similar manner, independently, but combining with strength and purpose.”
