The Friday, Sept. 2, Column

The Last Minute Band

Soundbytes – Vintage Festival Update

The themes for the music stay the same, but the Valley of the Mon Vintage Festival has made some changes in the music line- up. With Sonoma’s favorite cowboy crooner Nick Kardum laid up after an automobile accident, Train Wreck Junction has cancelled all their shows until November. Filling the bill will be a group out of Petaluma, all alumni of Rancho Cotati High School called “Rancho Deluxe.”  Many that saw them open recently at Rossi’s 1906 Roadhouse thought they upstaged the headliner. Sunday, Sept. 25, “Country Sunday” line-up looks like this now. Buck Nickels and Loose Change kicks off the day at noon, Tommy Thomsen at 1:15 p.m. and Rancho Deluxe at 2:45 p.m.

Saturday Sept, 24 has a change as well. The Rich Little Band had a conflict with the date but drummer Scott DeMartini wanted to do the show, as he had no conflict, so he has assembled a group of local music veterans to head up “the Last Minute Band” playing rock classics from the ‘90s. Saturday, Sept 24, “Something for Everyone” now has local high school band Heroes Turn Human kicking off the day at 11 a.m., the Last Minute Band at noon, T Luke and the Tight Suits at 1:15 p.m., Rubber Soul Acoustic Beatles Tribute at 3 p.m. and the Pulsators closing the day at 5 p.m.

The Friday, Sept 23, nighttime Gala event which features Notorious kicking off at 6 p.m. has not changed with tickets going fast with some at the door the night of the event if available. The Saturday and Sunday music is free and open to the public on the Sonoma Plaza. For more info, point your browser to
