Dave Stamey: Cowboys and Indians Magazine has called him “the Charley Russell of Western Music.”  Western Horseman Magazine  has declared his “Vaquero Song” to be one of the greatest Western songs of all time.  In 2010 True West Magazine named  him Best Living Western Solo Musician. Dave Stamey has been a cowboy, a mule packer, a dude wrangler, and is now one of the most popular Western entertainers working today.  He has been voted three times Entertainer of the Year, three times Male Performer of the Year and twice Songwriter of the Year by the Western Music Association, and received the Will Rogers Award  from the Academy of Western Artists. He's delighted audiences in twenty states, and finds that he prefers this to being stomped by angry horses. 

In November of 2016 Dave was inducted into the Western Music Hall of Fame.

"The group seamlessly careens from blues to bluegrass and rock in a way that really shouldn't make sense but somehow does." LA Times

From China to Iceland, and all over the U.S., Dirty Cello brings the world a high energy and unique spin on blues and bluegrass. Led by vivacious cross-over cellist, Rebecca Roudman, Dirty Cello is cello like you've never heard before. From down home blues with a wailing cello to virtuosic stompin' bluegrass, Dirty Cello is a band that gets your heart thumping and your toes tapping! “When lead guitar is replaced by the sound of hot licks on a cello, blues, rock and bluegrass rise to a new dimension. Dirty Cello — a four-piece band from San Francisco — makes its style of string music to inspire audiences to swing, sway and dance.” Ashland Daily Tidings. "Dirty Cello's music is all over the map: funky, carnival, romantic, sexy, tangled, electric, fiercely rhythmic, and textured, and only occasionally classical." Oakland Magazine.  "The band plays every style imaginable, and does some fantastic covers. (Their rendition of “Purple Haze” is incredible.) But what is most spectacular about them is hearing the depth of soul in Roudman's playing—it goes beyond what most people would expect from the instrument. She plays it with so much heart, you'll wonder why more bands don't have a cellist." Good Times Santa Cruz.  "A five-piece string ensemble that truly pushes the envelope and breaks the barriers, they blend blues, bluegrass and world music sounds with roots in the world of European classical music in a style that is unique and refreshing." Cloverdale Reveille

A whole lot of rock and soul. Anthony and Tammi on stage for the first time together.

Sat. June 26
Dinner starts at 6:30 and Showtime 8pm  
$45 for dinner and show  Seated <21 w/parent

Anthony Arya is a singer, guitarist, and songwriter raised in Santa Cruz, California. In Fall 2018, at age 15, Anthony was on Season 15 of NBC's The Voice. Shortly after he released his debut album Going To California, and his songs are regularly played on roots radio station KPIG. Arya's music is rock with a touch of jazz and blues. Anthony has performed hundreds of shows around the Bay Area and folks say you're likely to walk away humming one of his tunes for days after a performance. In May 2020, Arya released his second original album, The Road which is currently receiving airplay nationwide.

Tammi Brown has performed with some of the most notable Music Industry Icons known to the world including renowned Music Producer, Quincy Jones, Stanley Jordan, Dr. Maya Angelou, Joan Baez, Spyro Gyra, and Eric Bibb to name a few. Drenched in the uplifting and sultry sounds of Gospel and Jazz music, Tammi's voice is filled with rich tones, elegant phrasing, and vocal versatility, giving it a unique flavor. Influenced at the tender age of 4, Tammi quickly found her musical roots in the soulfulness of Gospel music while singing, playing organ, and directing the choir in church. Her musical roots blossomed when she discovered the vocal gracefulness of Ella Fitzgerald, the rawness of Aretha Franklin, and the power of Chaka Khan.
