King Daddy Murr

Pick of the Week – King Daddy Murr – All over the Valley

In case you missed him last night at the City Party, King Daddy Murr (Johnn Murphy) is back in town and will be playing with friends at a number of venues this weekend. Why is this important and who cares? Murr was an integral piece of the Sonoma Valley music scene as just about any one ever was, and in many ways, still is. His son, Zakk Murphy is still gigging in the Whiskey Thieves and his new act, Wingo Moon. After spending an entire career working at the Sonoma Developmental Center, Murr and his wife retired to the Big Easy where he has family and has been living the “Life of Reily,” playing as many places as he can and just flat out enjoying his retirement. Roll the clock back a couple decades. If you played music in Sonoma Valley, you likely played in one of his acts, or even in his garage, which then went on to become an actual band, Murphy’s Garage, with rotating members from the folks that used to jam in the garage. That act eventually turned into Highway 12 and then, when he got tired of carrying around a full set of drums, created the act “E. Z. Kewl” who played “jazzy” renditions of popular songs and he used a cocktail drum kit he could literally pick up with one hand and carry out of the show. We used to joke on the old radio show we did that Murr would play anywhere, even in the produce aisle of a grocery store. Then it happened. Yep, an actual regular gig at Whole Foods in, you guessed it, the produce aisle.

There is no show scheduled for tonight, July 31, as of this writing, but if we know Murr, something will come up. Saturday, Aug. 1 you can catch King Daddy Murr and Friends at Annex Wine Bar, kicking off early at 6:30 p.m., as a lot of players will be sitting in. Then Sunday, Aug. 2, it’s a double header for the King, with a show at B & V Whiskey Bar and Grille at 3 p.m. and then at the blues jam at the Blue Moon Saloon at 10 p.m.

Local Musician Spotlight – Manny Inocencio

If you’ve been at the Community Cafe recently and thought you saw Carlos Santana in an Oakland Raiders jersey, you’d be wrong. Whether or not Santana likes the Raiders or not is still up in the air, but you likely ran into “Raider Manny” as he is affectionately called on his radio show on community radio KSVY. Manny is relatively new to the music scene here in Sonoma, even after living here for years and playing music for even longer than that. His act, Tilted Halos, is on a summer jaunt throughout the Sonoma Valley. Let’s see what he’s all about and ask him the six standard questions. You can catch Manny and the band this Saturday, Aug. 1, at the El Verano Inn, kicking off at 9 p.m.

1) Many musicians in our generation cite the Beatles on Ed Sullivan as that moment when they knew music was what they wanted to do. When and what was it that made you realize you wanted to be a musician?

MI> It was 1957. I was living in East Oakland and my older brother was taking me to a movie down at the Fox Theatre in town. I’m not sure what movie it was but it was an Elvis Presley movie and he played and sang “Love me Tender” and that did it. At that point I knew.

2) That first instrument you owned. What was it and do you still have it?

MI> It was actually a ukulele. (Manny is actually an accomplished drummer and signer now). No, I don’t have it any longer. It was in my life for about three years when my Grandfather got a new one and handed that one down to me. My mom and aunt used to get a kick out of me playing it and acting like Elvis, shaking my hips and all.

3) Who are you’re primary influences in your music?

MI> Well, clearly Elvis Presley, but also Bob Dylan, the Beatles, Eric Clapton, the whole first British invasion really influenced me. Bands like the Who, Cream, the Stones. Music was blooming on all fronts; blues, rock, soul and I was fortunate enough to have been there.

4) What CD or playlist is in your car or your iPod?

MI> I’ve been listening to our latest original composition called “Road less Traveled” written by our guitar player Jeffro Hunter. Just checking things to see what might need to be changed or mixed up before we go in and do the final tracks.

5) Tell us about your current acts.

MI> My only act now is Tilted Halos. We focus on rock classics from the ‘60s and ‘70s and try to revive those songs from the British invasion era that need to be remembered and played. We also have some originals that we are really proud of. The act is all about having fun and doing justice to the songs, making them sound good.

6) If you could have written one song, which one would it be and why?

MI> <without hesitation> “Imagine” by John Lennon. I share the same views as the words; it’s as simple as that. Could you imagine? It says it all.

RubberSoul

Rubber Soul

Soundbytes – Bits and Pieces

If you’re a Beatles fan, then you’ll want to find yourself at Rossi’s 1906 dancehall on Sunday, July 26, at 5 p.m. when the debut of the new local acoustic Beatles tribute act Rubber Soul takes the stage. The band consists of a number of local veteran players, including members of Plan Be, Tsunami, BackTrax, Driven and more. The “Marks” brothers, Mark Dennis and Mark Willson, along with Oscar Mooneyhan are handling the guitar duties, along with the rhythm section from BackTrax, Aldo Malerbi on bass and Luis A. Montes on drums, and Kat Mooneyhan on percussion and backing vocals. The members are all long-time Beatles fans and have taken the time to see that eh song is meticulously replicated as closely as possible to the original songs while infusing a bit of their own flair. There is no cover for the show.

It’s a Piano celebration at Sebastiani Theatre on Sunday, July 26, when three amazing pianists will perform on the Steinway piano, donated recently to the theatre by Robyn Makaruk. Debbie Knapp, Stephanie Ozer and Jason Farnham will all take turns playing sets. According to Ozer, “Expect to hear Bossa Nova, Samba, Choro and Baiao and the unexpected classically influenced Brazilian jazz in this first rate listening venue.” The event is a benefit for the Theatre foundation and the Silver Moon Theatre. Tickets will be available at the Theatre box office or at the door. Showtime is 7 p.m.

You can help the Sonoma Valley High School music program and see an amazing show with three acts, all while enjoying dinner tonight, July 24, when the Dixie Giants, Tuba Skinny and the Sonoma Valley High Jazz Combo take the stage at Rossi’s 1906 Dancehall. All money donated will go toward the department to help fund a variety of things: field trips, bringing in guest conductors, after school music clinics, instrument and music cost. Tuba Skinny has steadily evolved from a loose collection of street musicians into a solid ensemble dedicated to bringing the traditional New Orleans sound to audiences around the world. The act draws on a wide range of musical influences, from spirituals to depression-era blues, along with ragtime to traditional jazz. The Dixie Giants are a group of young, energetic musicians who enjoy the sounds of traditional jazz. Their repertoire includes New Orleans classics written by the likes of Louis Armstrong and Kid Ory, reinterpretations of modern pop-rock songs in the Dixieland style, and original tunes written in the style of traditional New Orleans Jazz. Dinner Tickets include priority seating and a special tasting menu of Rossi’s award winning BBQ, served family style at your table. For tickets and more info, point your browser to rossis1906.com. Tickets will be available at the door. Dinner is at 7:30 p.m. and showtime at 8:30 p.m.

Local Musician Spotlight – Steve T. Ney

You might know him as the sleeved tattooed guy at Murphy’s Irish Pub and had no idea he was actually a talented singer-songwriter, and you wouldn’t be alone. Ney is quietly one of those “hidden away” musicians that doesn’t follow the spotlight, content to write songs and do his own music for himself, and maybe a songwriting competition or two, which he typically wins.

1) Many musicians in our generation cite the Beatles on Ed Sullivan as that moment when they knew music was what they wanted to do. When and what was it that made you realize you wanted to be a musician?

SN> I was with my mom and driving somewhere and I heard a song by the Staple Sisters, not even sure which one, but that was it, right there. I knew what I wanted to do. Oh, and maybe my first KISS concert.

2) That first instrument you owned. What was it and do you still have it?

SN> Was a 1963 Gibson Melody Maker, that I truly had too young as I really didn’t know what I had. A friend came over and was playing it and dropped it and broke the headstock and that was it. No, I don’t have it any longer, nor do I have the 7 or so Vintage ‘70s Les Pauls I used to own either. I really wish I would have kept them.

3) Who are you’re primary influences in your music?

SN> Funny, but my influences are all over and I don’t sound like any of them in my music, but Yes, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Issac Hayes, Curtis Mayfield.

4) What CD or playlist is in your car or your iPod?

SN> This might sound weird, but lately it’s my own songs I’ve been writing. I record them then listen back while driving to see what needs to be changed or if I can get additional inspiration from them. But, the White Stripes or Skynyrd are always a distinct possibility

5) Tell us about your current acts.

SN> Doing mostly song writing for the West Coast Songwriters Association competition. They have them quarterly in the North Bay. Funny, this round I’m up against a lot of locals, Dawn Angelosante, Adam Traum, Bobby Jo Valentine and others. And we have the one off show this Friday at Murphy’s Irish Pub with myself, Shiloh Hobel, Michael Freeman, Tony Gibson and Dawn Angelosante. We’re billing as the “Hey-Heys.”

6) If you could have written one song, which one would it be and why?

SN> <without hesitation> “The First Time Ever I saw your face” by Roberta Flack. Hands down the best song on the planet.
