We love the blues, and we try to keep it authentic and solid. If you like your blues straight-ahead, with maybe a dash of jazz, and you like the classic Hammond B3 and vintage guitar tones...we think you'll dig what we do.
Dolce Music: Sunday, July 22nd @ 2:00pm
Dolce Musica is a trio that performs a great variety of material with joy and passion. From seminal artists like Dylan to "old school" R&B and original material, the song selection pleases audiences wherever we play. The trio combines the expert guitar styling of Don Bill and smooth flugelhorn and bass accompaniment of Chris Vasquez. We feature Ren Geisick on vocals. Ren is a rising star who is a 2015 Jazz Search West winner, which culminated in an award winning performance at Yoshi's, Oakland. Ren also is releasing her first solo Album, produced by Grammy award winner, Jesse Harris, (Don't Know Why) in 2017! Our sets suit the tastes of many and we're lucky, because we chose the tunes we love to play!
