Soundbytes – Bits and Pieces
From South Dakota, Nebraska and all points in-between, it was the late ‘70s when Rick Binkley and his soon to be wife Lisa, started the band Savannah and began touring the states, laying down country music. Travels had them landing in Northern California in 1984, Sonoma specifically, and decided to bring the band here for it’s new home base. The act changed it’s name to Rick Binkley and Bad River over the years and played the region until just seven years ago, when Rick and Lisa moved back to Texas.
The band is having a reunion of sorts and it’s a family affair, with the Binkley’s son, Codi and many others playing the three-act bill at B & V Whiskey Bar and Grille on Saturday, Dec. 26 at 9 p.m. Many members of the original act will be on stage that night , along with Wingo Moon, who will be supporting the act. Wingo Moon will have with them Nick Kardum and Joe Shettig from Train Wreck Junction. Opening the show will be Codi Binkley’s new act, Codi and Friends, which has Carter West, Matt Piazza and Cliff Hugo. There is no cover for the show.
