Big Sam's Funky Nation

Tickets $18 in advance, $22 day of show
Concert starts @ 8:00PM, Doors open @ 6:00PM
Dinner menu available / General Admission Standing Room / Limited seating available / First come, first seated / $10 min per person at tables / All ages

Big Sam’s Funky Nation is a driving force of urban funk. Ryan White, of the Oregonian, says the band is “tight enough (and hot enough) to turn coal into a diamond!” The band is led by trombone powerhouse, Big Sam Williams, formerly the trombonist for the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, who the San Francisco Chronicle calls “the top man on the slide trombone in the birthplace of jazz.” Big Sam refuses to let the audience sit still. Between the band’s solos, Big Sam’s signature dance moves and his distinctive trombone riffs, the energy level is high voltage when this band takes the stage!

Parachute & The Cab
With special guest Katelyn Tarver

Tickets $16 in advance, $20 day of show
Concert starts @ 7:30PM, Doors open @ 6:30PM
Dinner menu available / General Admission Standing Room / Limited seating available / First come, first seated / $10 min per person at tables / All ages

Mixing full-throttle rock with dollops of blue-eyed soul, vintage R&B, and melodic pop radio anthems in the making, Parachute has arrived. The band's wide range of influences is reflected in the songs on the group's debut album, Losing Sleep (2009). Produced by Grammy winner John Shanks, the album crested at No. 1 on the iTunes and Amazon charts, driven by the success of the hit singles "She is Love" and "Under Control."

The Cab got its start while band members Alex DeLeon (vocals) and Cash Cooligan (bass) were still in high school. Panic! At the Disco's Spencer Smith got ahold of the group's demo and was so impressed that he helped the young crew ink a deal with Decaydance/Fueled by Ramen Records, which released The Cab's debut album Whisper War in 2008. Featuring singles "I'll Run," "One of Those Nights," and "Bounce," the disc impressed rockers and pop aficionados alike.
