Sandra Bernhard: EASY LISTENING

DEC 19, 2024

Ride along with Sandy as she takes you on a tour of her musical influences. From the first time she heard The Supremes on AM radio on a snowy night in Flint, Michigan, to her first concert, Simon and Garfunkel… these are the songs you love and remember. The strumming guitars, the singalongs… from Peter Paul & Mary to the Stones – with Slaughter On Tenth Avenue playing on the Fisher HiFi (“Absolutely no one can touch this, do you hear me!” screamed her father) – as Ravel & Debussy drifted up from the basement where her mother just wanted to take a small break. The sounds of home that we all remember… jazz from your brother’s bedroom, your sister shouting along to Janis as she plotted her escape. The cross-country move to Arizona opened new musical vistas, as the ‘60s gave way to the ‘70s and the women of the era acted as our spiritual guides… Tina, Joni, Dusty, Aretha, Laura, Carole… Climb into the Pontiac station wagon and get ready to hit the road.

“The holiday vibes floating in the desert, Christmas carols hanging on a Saguaro. We’ll be bringing you old memories and new, just the way you like it:  groovy, cool and cozy.” - Sandra Bernhard

ILE

FEB 21, 2025

From her roots as the powerhouse vocalist of Calle 13 to her GRAMMY-winning solo career, iLe brings a mesmerizing blend of traditional Latin rhythms and cutting-edge electronic sounds to The Wallis. Her debut album, iLevitable, was hailed as an instant classic, while Almadura pushed boundaries, fusing ancestral beats with modern digital landscapes. With her latest release, Nacarile, iLe delves even deeper into her creative well, collaborating with luminaries like Mon Laferte and Ivy Queen. Join us for an unforgettable evening of music that transcends boundaries and speaks to the soul!
