This event is 21 and over
Redstone formed in Oakland in 2017 and has positioned itself gracefully into the world of Americana rock & roll in the Bay Area. The instrumentation of guitar, keys, bass and drums provides for a balanced sound complimented by shared lead vocals and harmonies. With focus on both dynamic composition and impassioned improvisation, Redstone is a band that appeals to the conventional audience as well as those with adventurous ears. They are a band that emphasizes the importance of tradition, but are certainly willing to break the mold when the opportunity arises. With penchants for both singing sweetly and rocking hard, Redstone will lead your soul to satisfaction one way or another.
Laura Benitez and the Heartache
Laura Benitez and the Heartache use the three chord tools of country music to tell the simple, unvarnished truth about love, too much whiskey, and the call of the road. Their songs range from honky-tonk shuffles to rock 'n' roll numbers to sweet old time waltzes, and cover everything from unwed motherhood ("Me or the Baby") to mean drunks ("Don't Wake the Devil"), with a whole lot of heartbreak in between. Their twangy honesty shines through in straightforward arrangements, crystalline harmonies, and spare instrumentation. Beware their catchy hooks and sweet melodies - these stray puppy tunes will follow you home and become your most steadfast companions.
