Soundbytes – New Years Eve Rundown

Another year gone by already, and this one was a doozy for many reasons. This is the time where we thank all who read the column and go out and support live-local music, so again, thank you.

We’ve got the local rundown for New Years Eve for you; mind you many of these are ticketed events or require reservations, so check that out before you head out.

El Verano Inn, 705 Laurel Ave. El Verano, 935-0611
Tilted Halos, Wildflower Weed and Fred and Jackie. 8 p.m. Tilted Halos play a nice variety of classic hard rock along with some original songs as well. WildFlower Weed plays what they describe as “Hippie Mountain Music.” Fred and Jackie are the founders of the band Acoustic Soul and will be playing as a duo.

Starling Bar, 19380 Sonoma Hwy., Sonoma, 938-7442
Jamie Clark Band. 9:30 p.m. Jaime Clark is a singer-songwriter and a fine one at that. Clark has recorded albums in Nashville and worked with John Capek, who has worked with Rod Stewart, Joe Cocker, Diana Ross and more.

The Reel (formerly Rossi’s), 401 Grove St. El Verano, 343-0044

HopMonk Tavern, 691 Broadway Sonoma, 935-9100

The Gentlemen Soldiers. 3 p.m. The Carrtunes. 9 p.m. The pub continues it’s tradition of kicking off the new year at midnight Dublin Ireland time and again at midnight California time.
