The Carrtunes

Spotlight – Carrtunes CD Release

It’s not often that a band stays together for three years, let alone 30, and that’s probably why the Carrtunes are so good their blend of folk, swing, doo wop, jazz and Americana. Hailing from Sonoma Valley, the band formed when all the members had children in the same school and the parents started jamming to play talent shows and such for the school. Almost 30 years later, they still get together almost every Monday night and play, just for the fun of it. After so many years, they finally decided to release a CD.

The ladies in the band, Cynthia Carr, Sandi Everett and Caryn Prince, with their stellar harmonies, will invoke images from the Andrews Sisters all the way to ‘70s folk singers. Along with Ed Davis and Doug Bates, the quintet’s new CD is titled “A Carrtunes Banquet” and it certainly is that. The disc is all cover songs, sans one, which we’ll touch on later. The order kicks off with a Gillian Welch and David Rawlings song “Look at Miss Ohio” and it’s on from there. Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Robbie Robertson and more are all represented. There is even a version of “In the Mood” written by Joseph Garland and was a big hit for the Glenn Miller Orchestra, and as embarrassed as we are to admit this, we didn’t know the song actually had words, but they come through loud and clear and in the style of the era in which it was written.

The band is most proud of Cynthia Carrs original song “Our House, Our Town” which bass player Ed Davis says “The song has such universal appeal, it feels to me like one that could become part of The American Songbook…” According to Carr “When I was a young girl, I read and loved “Vagabond’s House” in the ‘20’s and describes a traveling soul’s home filled with their most valued treasures and memories. It churned up the wanderer in me and made me pine for this special place. I carried that with me until I was a grown woman and began writing, but it wasn’t until I actually fell in love that the song came to be.”

The disc is being released today, and you can get that and find more about the band at their website, carrtunesband.com.

The Bodies

Soundbytes – Punk-o Rama

If punk rock is your forte, then El Verano is the place for you this weekend. Unbeknownst to many, Sonoma has deep roots in the punk scene, going back to the ‘80s with Modern Action Records being a big part of the picture. Never heard of them? Point your browser here. modernactionrecords.com. The Briefs, the Bodies and Roadside Bombs are just some of the acts on the label and many of those acts will be at the El Verano Inn on Friday, May 19, then on Saturday, May 20, the Bodies will be holding a reunion at the Reel Fish Shop and Grill as a benefit for AKA and Sonoma Valley Little League, This will be the first Sonoma appearance by the band in over five years.

Showcase the Band

Hawaiian Luau

The Sonoma Moose Lodge has been the scene of many a benefit over the years. This Saturday, May 20, it will be the Moose Lodge that is the beneficiary of the third annual California Luau. Funds raised from the event will be used to help pay for upgrades to the lodge’s kitchen. Dinner will be prepared by moose member Roger Declercq of Sonoma Gourmet, and will feature whole roasted crispy pig with three salsas, smoked chicken thighs with pineapple-soy glaze, slow-smoked brisket with horseradish barbecue sauce, side dishes and all followed up by homemade desserts by the “Women of the Moose.”

Providing the musical entertainment for the evening will be Showcase the Band. Showcase is one of the most versatile acts in Sonoma Valley, with the ability to play dance songs ranging from swing, Cajun, rock and blues, and Louie and Patti Perez have been heading up the act for more than 20 years. In addition to the band, the dancers of Hula Mai will be in attendance for a dance performance. There will also be a raffle and silent auction. Tickets for the Luau will be available at the door and include the show, dinner and a drink. The event kicks off at 4 p.m. The Sonoma Moose Lodge is at 20580 Broadway, in Sonoma.

Many wonder what exactly the Moose Lodge does, as lodges and social clubs are becoming a thing of the past. A social club, like the Moose and Elks, are dedicated to serving the community and the Moose Lodge gives money to local schools, the Sonoma Valley High School culinary program, 4-H clubs, the Lions Club, and local families facing hardships. It is also the place to play bingo, also a thing of the past, every Tuesday night, as well as Sunday polka dancing. The lodge is always looking for new members to join the organization, with the hopes of keeping the long tradition of social clubs alive.

Spotlight

Bowie Forever

Although we were a casual fan, having enjoyed and was inspired by his music even before our teen years, we didn’t realize the impact that David Bowie had on others lives until he passed away. Between Prince and Bowie, we’re not sure which had more posts mourning their departure on our social media feeds, but let’s just say it was plentiful for both. Sonoma Valley has chosen to not forget either, with what seems to be an annual tribute show to both artists. Prince was remembered a couple of weeks ago, and this week it’s time to remember David Bowie and the local musician community has pulled out all the stops with a show on Saturday, May 13, at the El Verano Inn in El Verano.

The show is the brainchild of Dmitra Smith and Tony Gibson, and features a number of musicians performing homage to the musical legend along with prize giveaways and raffles. Slated to perform are musicians from the Bumblin’ Bones, Gentlemen Soldiers, Half People, Shakedown Choir, Sunday night blues jam and more. Special guests include drummer Kevin Carnes of the Broun Fellinis and bassist Shawn Miller of Static People. The list of performers is growing even as we pen this piece. Audience participation is not mandatory, but as Smith puts it, “Everyone is encouraged to dress in their favorite plumage, covered in stardust, and blast off into space for a night to remember.”

Tickets will be available at the door but folks are encouraged to buy in advance, as last year the show was essentially a sell-out. Tickets can be found at eventbrite.com/e/bowie-forever-tribute-tickets-32126611560. Showtime is 8:30 p.m.

Chris Hanlin

Chris Hanlin House Concert

As we noted in our piece on house concerts published on April 21 of this year, with the state of the music industry, house concerts are making a big comeback on the music scene across the country. This weekend is another slated for here in Sonoma Valley that will feature Chris Hanlin and Allie Moss on Saturday, May 13.

Hanlin is a local musician and luthier who has yet, in our opinion, to play a venue in the Valley that showcases him properly. This may be the best venue yet to see him, as Hanlin’s heart-felt lyrics and music really need to be “listened to” and not just be background music as many of the venues in Sonoma are when it comes to live music. We’re not saying anything bad about any venue, just that Hanlin has a unique style when playing his assortment of string instruments and even showcases a harmonium pump-organ at some shows. His performance is sure to open some eyes.

Allie Moss is currently touring the U.S primarily via house concerts, and after a stop in Oakland the night before, Moss will be the headliner at the show on the 13th. Moss has previously worked with Ingrid Michaelson, and has just released a new CD titled “The Other Side,” which features the single, “Bet My Life” and features some songs that were co-written by Garrison Starr. Moss was recently on a tour of larger venues with the Grammy-winning duo, A Great Big World. This is a rare chance to see her perform for an intimate gathering of 40 or so.

Tickets will only be available in advance, as once you purchase the ticket, the venue will be revealed, but we can say it is in the vicinity of West El Verano. For tickets and more info, point your browser to insidelands.org.
