Robin Henkel with Horns

2:00 PM14:00

Robin Henkel with Horns

Mostly known for his delta blues style, Robin Henkel is also active as a composer and arranger of jazz music. Robin and his band present an entertaining and educational performance of mostly original jazz, swing, funk and blues featuring, Steve Ebner: trumpet and flugelhorn, Mark Lessman tenor saxophone and flute, Troy Jennings: baritone saxophone, Gunnar Biggs: bass, Kevin Koch: drums and Robin Henkel: guitars and vocal.

Robin is a four time recipient of "Best Blues" at the San Diego Music Awards. He has performed with Johnny Almond, SD Symphony, Jimmy Witherspoon, a variety of San Diego based bands, and opened shows for BB King, Dizzy Gillespie, Bonnie Raitt, Dr. John, Jr Wells, Jr Walker, Arlo Guthrie, Hot Tuna and John McLaughlin.  

“Composing and arranging for my horn band is my strongest effort and passion. It’s not an exaggeration to say each new tune or performance is representative of my life’s work. It involves hours of sitting with the piano or guitar to work out the harmony, form, composition and arrangements. Sometimes when practicing, a spiffy little riff spins-off from whatever I’m working on. Very often a new tune is composed unintentionally just by spending time in practice.  Please join us as we honor the rich traditions of jazz, swing, funk and blues.” 

FREE TO THE PUBLIC
Seating is limited to chairs in room ONLY. Additional parking available at City Hall.

Allison Adams Tucker Quartet

Allison Adams Tucker Quartet

Given four stars by DownBeat Magazine and described by the Examiner as “lustrous in any language – a vocalist who clarifies every note within a hair’s breath,” multi-lingual vocalist Allison Adams Tucker creates a unique musical postcard with jazz-inspired songs that span countries and genres in six languages, from Cole Porter to Tom Jobim, the Beatles to Sting. Allison has come by this concept honestly, having circled the globe multiple times and performing everywhere from Tuscany to Tokyo. Allison began singing at age five in her native San Diego, and traversed everything from country to punk, Elizabethan madrigals to radio jingles, before settling on jazz a decade ago. Allison will be joined by long-time collaborators Danny Green piano, Justin Grinnell bass, and Julien Cantelm drums for an exhilarating and heart-warming concert of music and stories, and a sprinkle of holiday spirit. www.allisonadamstucker.com

Watson, Beldock, & Beach with guest percussionist Roger Friend  

Peggy Watson, David Beldock, and Paul Beach perform original acoustic folk, blues and jazz. Together, the three are known for their dazzling musicianship, beautiful harmonies, and humorous stage presence.

Peggy Watson is a unique musician. She is recognized as one of San Diego’s leading acoustic singer/songwriters but has been embraced by the jazz and pop world as well. With a wide vocal range, her smooth, emotional voice effortlessly moves between contemporary folk, smoky jazz, or powerful pop ballads. Watson has released nine CDs. In a review of Peggy’s newest CD, “A Good Life,” George Varga of the San Diego Union Tribune wrote, “Watson's purity of tone, pinpoint control and glorious range are matched throughout by her unerring good taste.” 

David Beldock and Peggy Watson have been frequent music collaborators for over 20 years. Beldock is widely recognized as one of San Diego’s leading guitarists. A reviewer in the L.A. Times wrote “Beldock pushes the rhythmic wagon with some of the most cracklin’ country/jazz solos and fills you’ll hear anywhere.” Beldock is also a top-notch songwriter with several awards.  His song “Feel the Wind,” won a second-place prize in the international John Lennon songwriting contest.

 Bass player, Paul Beach, is a gifted musician who worked with the late singer/songwriter Larry Robinson as well as many other renowned local performers.  In the past, Beach toured with major bands in all 50 states and throughout the world. His credits include tours with Gary Puckett, Spanky and Our Gang, the Association, and the Mamas and the Papas.

Special guest percussionist, Roger Friend, resides here in North County but is known among musicians and audiences throughout the world for his exceptional talent. During the past 40 years, he has toured in over 100 countries, with jazz, blues, pop, country, and rock groups of all origins. He has also recorded with top musicians in the U.S., Europe, Asia, and Africa, with numerous credits on film soundtracks and television shows.
