San Pedro Square Market Live Music: Join SPSM for live performances in Downtown San Jose the week of February 8th, 2016 featuring: The Honeywood, Lara Price & Friends, Tan of Dreams and Wil Roberts Duo.
The Honeywood: Thursday, February 11th @ 7pm
Cindy and George Nowicki have been musical partners for many years. More years than Cindy will allow us to post. They have played together and separately in many bands over the years and have covered many styles of music. The Honeywood Band project brings all those musical influences together and strips them down to just vocals and one acoustic instrument which could be a six or twelve string guitar, a piano or a mandolin. We try to capture the song in what we think it would sounded like in the early stages, when the songwriter was first working on it.
The band covers an eclectic variety of artists. Everything from folk artists like Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Jackson Browne, James Taylor to Country Rockers such as the Eagles, Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt, Dan Fogleberg, Crosby Stills & Nash, early Elton John, Jimmy Buffett, Tom Petty and Warren Zevon to Progressive bands such as ELP, The Moody Blues, Kansas, Pink Floyd to rockers such The Beatles, Eric Clapton, Blind Faith, Govt Mule, The Allman Brothers, Heart, Bob Segar, Stevie Wonder, Fleetwood Mac to Country artists such as Dolly Parton, Trisha Yearwood, Martina McBride to Carrie Underwood, Terrie Clark, Mary Chapin Carpenter to exciting current artists such as Susan Tedeschi, Alison Krauss, The Goo Goo Dolls, Sheryl Crow, Joan Osborne, Jackie Green, KT Tunstill, Sarah McLachlan, Green Day, Gillian Welch and many others. A little something for every acoustic musical taste.
Lara Price & Friends: Friday, February 12th @ 7pm
Price discovered the power of music at the tender age of 6, when she started taking piano lessons in England with legendary 80’s music innovator Howard Jones. At the age of 12 she found her singing voice. Price was influenced and encouraged by her junior high and high school choir teacher, Blake Olmstead. She continued her vocal studies operatically with Dr. Lynn Berg at BSU. She arrived in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1997 to pursue her dream of singing in a band. By 1998, Price began running her own blues jam at JJ’s Blues in San Jose, and was featured in an inspiring article about blues jams in the September issue of the Blues Revue Magazine. The journey of Lara’s blues band (The Lara Price Band) includes tours across the United States and China. It also includes five CD’s that Price has produced, co-written, and is featured playing drums, guitar, and back up vocals. Lara and her band have shared the bill with R&B legends, Etta James, James Brown, Buddy Guy, Leon Russell and many more.
Like many full time musicians, Lara fronts and leads several musical projects: Lara Unplugged, an acoustic duo; Velvet Plum, a popular top 40’s party band, Militia of Love, a Cali-Reggae band; The Lara Price Band, a rootsy rockin’ blues band and the Lara Price Blues Revue a fantastic 10 piece R&B show band, and Girls Got the Blues. This is an all-star cast of female talent that has come together to make musical magic!As of late Lara’s 6th record, “I Mean Business”. Was picked up by The VizzTone Label Group and will be released to the world November 13th, 2015!
She’s an All American singer with a sultry stage presence and a voice that demands your attention- smoky, lonely, sexy, and powerful. It’s no wonder her music transcends the blues and crosses a line into music that is unequivocally superb.
Tan of Dreams: Saturday, February 13th @ 7pm
Tan of Dreams Stems from the Creative work of Singer, SongWriter & Drummer Renato Annicchiarico aka Enahena, whose principal characteristic is his sophisticated sense of melody & harmony (most likely descended from his medieval gregorian ancestors), which paired with his strong sense of rhythm, is the hallmark of the Band ...After a short period of collaborations in 2013-2014, with various musicians, the band comes to find its current & final lineup with the addition of two outstanding musicians, long time Renato's friends, Peter Cor >(Keyboards,Guitar,backing vocals),& Aaron Carothers > (Bass) ...The Trio with this final lineup seems to have fully matched Renato's Vision in achieving an inspiring yet powerful sound, naturally blending Melody & Rhythm in such a fashion which is appealing to an array of diverse audiences
