    Karl Denson's Tiny Universe w/ special guest Phil Lesh

    Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe w/ special guest Phil Lesh

    Terrapin Crossroads is pleased to announce Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe return to the Grate Room with very special guest Phil Lesh sitting in, on Sunday, September 4th! Get your tickets now at www.terrapincrossroads.net/tickets.

    Fresh off The Rolling Stones Ole’ Tour, which had the iconic group performing in numerous stadiums throughout Central and South America culminating in a historic free concert in Cuba, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe is back in action. In anticipation of his upcoming release in late 2016, Karl and his band The Tiny Universe, embark on a Nationwide run that will give new and old fans the chance to experience what is highly regarded as one of the best live bands on the planet. The current touring lineup is comprised of Richmond guitarist DJ Williams, Soulive drummer Alan Evans, The Greyboy Allstars bassist Chris Stillwell, Crush Effect’s David Veith on the keys, Seattle’s Chris Littlefield on trumpet and ace slide and lap steel guitarist Seth Freeman.

    Karl Denson’s most recent recorded work can be heard on the Tiny Universe LP, New Ammo. The collection showcases the grittier side of the band’s musical oeuvre, including stand outs like “My Baby” featuring singer Nicki Bluhm, ”Everybody Knows That” and his raucous rendition of The White Stripes “Seven Nation Army.” The album has received wide acclaim: All Music declared the effort, “easily their most musically adventurist album yet,” while DownBeat praised it as “music for both the party and for fans of instrumental prowess.”
    Approaching two decades strong, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe is a prolific touring juggernaut that regularly performs over 150 shows annually. They’re currently working on material for a new studio album to be released later this year. Denson himself is an acclaimed and highly in-demand saxophonist and songwriter who first came to national attention as a member of Lenny Kravitz’s Let Love Rule-era group and is currently a member of The Rolling Stones touring band.

    Thursday, September 8th, 2016
    $125 per guest, 21+

    tickets at http://www.terrapincrossroads.net/tickets

    You’re invited to Terrapin Crossroads’ Premier Harvest/Winemakers’ Dinner: Featuring the wines and music of Napa Valley renowned vintners: Silver Oak, Robert Biale Vineyards, Twomey Cellars, Gargiulo Vineyards and Silver Trident Winery

    Wine Reception begins @ 6:30 p.m.
    4 Course Winemaker’s Dinner begins @ 7 p.m.
    The Silverado Pickups Perform @ 9:00 p.m.

    Featuring the wines of:
    Silver Oak
    Gargiulo Vineyards
    Twomey Cellars
    Robert Biale Vineyards
    Silver Trident Winery

    The SilveradoPickups:
    A six-pack of wine, a couple of guitars and a handful of songs gave rise to The Silverado Pickups in the spring of 2010. Since that fateful gathering one evening down along the Oakville Crossroad, these wine-country cowboys have planted their roots deep within the Napa Valley wine and music scenes and have graced stages throughout California, Nashville and New Orleans.

    Band members and coconspirators include Napa Valley wine Industry vets David Duncan of Silver Oak and Twomey Cellars (vocals and harmonica), Jeff Gargiulo of Gargiulo Vineyards (lead guitars), Shane Soldinger with Silver Trident Winery (vocals and guitar), Dan Zepponi of Valley of The Moon (lead guitar), winemaker Tres Goetting of Robert Biale Vineyards (bass guitar), professional percussionist Joe Shotwell and notable wine-industry advisor Paul Hoffman (keyboards).

    The Pickups have created an original sound of wine infused California Country Rock. While some have described their music as ‘Americana’ others have called it ‘Corked Country’. The band has shared the stage with Lucinda Williams, Chuck Leavell of the Rolling Stones, David Pack and Billy Dean, and they’ve opened for legends such as Leon Russell, and Tim McGraw. The Silverado Pickups are veteran performers to Music Festivals Bottle Rock Napa Valley as well as Boudin Bourbon & Beer – New Orleans, and in 2016, the boys are scheduled to cook with Emeril, drink wine with Sammy Hagar and complete the recording of their highly anticipated debut album.

    Of the comparison between making good music and great wine, Silver Oak’s Duncan says, “When you get the wine just right, it’s like hitting a chord on the guitar.  All the notes have to be in place.”

    http://www.sangeronimomusic.com

    Bio:
    Rolling down a dusty west Marin back-road with the ocean breeze in their face. San Geronimo push the boundaries of their musical reach to perpetual heights as they soar above the Redwoods. Echoing pedal steel, ripping guitar, a rumbling rhythm section and a pair of sharp tonged troubadours splitting the “front man” duties find San Geronimo tapping into the deep musical roots of the northern California hills to bring you a sound that you’ll find fresh and new yet oh so familiar.

    Described by the San Francisco Bay Guardian as “Hard charging Americana” the dually fronted outfits second to none songwriting draws from the inkwells of both Jeremy D’Antonio and Darren Nelson, giving the band a level of diversity rarely matched in today’s music scene. Add the wizardry of Dave Zirbel’s charging pedal steel and lead guitar lines that twist and turn seamlessly through the bordering on chaotic rhythms provided by drummer Dan Luehring who’s only tether to earth may be the pounding but melodic bass lines.
    The band’s 2 1/2 year residency at Terrapin Crossroads has afforded them the perfect venue to hone in their ever-present chemistry and deep sense of camaraderie. The results are undeniable and infectious. Having recently shared the stage with the likes of Colonel Bruce Hampton, Trigger Hippie, Billy Kreutzmann, Wynona Judd, Robert Earl Keen and Phil Lesh, the band is firing on all cylinders as they careen down that dusty road with the speakers blaring!

    Melvin Seals & JGB

    Coming to the Grate Room at Terrapin Crossroads on September 23rd & 24th, 2016 will be Melvin Seals and JGB! Get your tickets at www.terrapincrossroads.net/tickets.

    Melvin Seals has been a powerful presence in the music industry for over 30 years with a long-established reputation as a performer, recording artist and producer. Melvin is most revered for his powerful, high-spirited, Hammond B-3 organ, and keyboards in the Jerry Garcia Band. Melvin spun his B-3 magic with the Jerry Garcia Band for 18 years and in doing so helped pioneer and define what has now become “Jam Band Music”. From blues to funk to rock to jazz, Melvin Seals serves up a tasty mix with a little R&B and gospel thrown in to spice things up.
    Melvin and JGB brings an intuitive, expressive style, soul, spontaneity and remarkable chops to the table. With acoustic and electric ingredients and unique combinations of Zach Nugent’s guitar and vocals, Pete Lavezzoli’s hearty drums and, of course, a heapin’ helpin’ of the wizard’s magic on Hammond B-3 Organ and keyboards. Along with backing vocals, the result is a most satisfying blend of natural organic grooves that challenges genre boundaries. Their chemistry is the focus from which they create a spontaneous and high art where the sky is the limit musically. They offer an exciting, often psychedelic musical journey that changes nightly and keeps the audience dancing and smiling (and some staring in amazement) for hours.
    In addition to the often played staples, the band has recently been exploring the back catalog and performing a ton of super rare tunes, some of which The Jerry Garcia Band played only a few times over all those years.
    Adding his rock-gospel-soul-rhythm and blues touch with his funky style of playing, no wonder Jerry nicknamed him “Master of the Universe”. Melvin continues to treat music lovers to his unique brand of melodic flavor with JGB. Come see and hear for yourself!

    Victoria George Band

    Victoria George Band

    Terrapin Crossroads is excited to have local singer-songwriter, Victoria George and her band, return to the bar stage.

    390910_10150468825943125_1614501583_n

    California Country.

    Yes, California Country is a thing. It’s a beautiful thing, actually. It’s the gift Victoria George gives her growing legion of fans everyday, and it’s worth knowing intimately.
    California Country happens when places like Northern California’s Marin County and country music meccas like Nashville collide. The result in Victoria George’s case is rather fascinating — a sound that’s part San Francisco folk, part Nashville/bluegrass twang, all heart and revelations and smarty-pants yarn-spinnin’. Gather round, Victoria beckons.
    Victoria is by now a confident mid-career singer-songwriter who knows what and who she is. She comes from a family of artists and herself has a background in theater. And, well, she’s lovely. So it’s not all that surprising she commands a stage with the zeal of an Allison Krauss or Bonnie Raitt, artists who check their pretention at the door and prefer honest-to-goodness stories.
    Music biz folks have indeed taken notice throughout the years. Victoria has worked in and outside of Nashville’s finest publishing houses and shared bills with the likes of Brandi Carlisle, the Doobie Brothers, Steve Earle, Delta Rae and other industry names that speak for themselves.
    To a person, she’ll say she’s never fit cleanly into the San Francisco or Nashville Venn diagram. Ambitious as she is, Victoria really doesn’t care much for catering her sound to fit mainstream country conventions. She writes songs the way chefs surprise regulars — love songs turn dark and drinking songs morph into existential mediations with regularity (related warning: the song “Sweet Amnesia” should only be consumed right before happy hours). Defining tracks like “Letters” and “Tables are Turning” smack listeners in the face with street-philosopher smarts. Nothing quite like it in Nashville, California or anywhere radios hold court.
    But she embraces her place in the lineage of folk artists primarily concerned with crafting songs to make people think and feel something meaningful. That’s the California Country way, and the Victoria George creed.
