"Leave Your Shoes at the Door" an ecstatic dance film followed by an ecstatic dance party

What happens when dance is more than just moving your body? This heart rendering documentary shares what conscious dancers experience, their transformation, and the community that arises around them.
Conscious dance offers a balm for the increasing isolation of our culture. It meets our essential human needs to be seen and held, to touch, to be in community, to inhabit flesh and bone, to transcend. And it all starts with the simple act of removing our shoes and feeling our feet on the ground.

Join us for a night of celebration as Ken Martini showcases his documentary throughout the West Coast. After the screening, Ken will DJ the night away and the dance floor will open for an ecstatic dance party. $15 suggested donation and due to limited space reservations are recommended.

She has released four albums on her own Precipitous Records, as well as writing and touring a solo play about her childhood called Cinderblock Bookshelves: A Guide For Children of Fame-Obsessed Bohemian Nomads. In 2016 she completed The Shopkeeper, her first film. She teaches musicians and non-musicians a series of classes called Songwriting for Civilians. Critics have exclaimed, "An Americana gem…she’s a confessional folkie with a rock and soul heart." – No Depression

"...strong songwriting, fine voice and a penchant for a kind of intelligent adult pop music informed by folk, country, rock 'n' roll, blues and soul music..." – Sing Out!

A strong songwriter, her work simultaneously acknowledges life’s difficulties and offers a genuine message of hope.

The Kastner McNally Band

7:30pm 7:30pm

The Kastner McNally Band

"A great songwriter that went under the radar." That's how Bonnie Raitt describes Larry John McNally in a recent interview with USA Today. But while Larry may prefer to stay out of the limelight, there's nothing "under the radar" about the artists who've recorded his
songs: The Eagles ("I Love to Watch a Woman Dance"), Rod Stewart ("The Motown Song"), Joe Cocker ("Long Drag Off A Cigarette"), Chaka Khan ("Sleep on It" and "A Woman in a Man's World"), Don Henley ("For My Wedding") and, of course, the aforementioned Raitt
("Nobody's Girl" and "Slow Ride"), to name a humble few.
In 1973, Larry and Andrew met and the chemistry was there so they sat down and wrote the song, “Struttin’ On Sunday”. Aaron Neville cut it but they didn’t find out about it for 12 years but that’s another story.
In 1978 Andrew and Larry joined forces again, this time in LA and over a couple years wrote some great songs, two of which were recorded by Chaka Kahn and
another, “Somewhere Somebody”, by Aaron Neville which reached #1 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary charts in 1992 - and that’s when they went their separate ways.
Fast-forward 37 years. Andrew and Larry, for the first time in over three decades are performing together as The Kastner McNally Band. Kastner and McNally are
teamed up with Jon Gray on drums and TV and film composer David Schwartz (composer for Arrested Development, Northern Exposure and more) on bass.
Their music is soulful, clever, lyrical, catchy and poignant. You will find it hard not to be swept up by their infectious and inspiring music.
Bernie Larsen opens the show with his soulful voice and incredible guitar playing. Show begins at 7:30, and there is a $20 suggested donation.

Gregg Myers

Gregg Myers

Gregg Myers was born into the eclectic mix of his father’s love of opera and western music, coupled with his mother’s love of musicals and show tunes. Unfortunately, he was born with half his face paralyzed and a severe stutter lasting well into his teens. “I could barely speak,” he recalls, “but music gave me voice. It calmed my speech and made everything easier - something stutterers like me know all too well.” After overcoming his speech impediment, Myers left music far behind to pursue a career in advertising/marketing, a marriage, a mortgage, along with that ever-elusive thing called, “normalcy.” Only years later would he and music reunite, and by so doing, reacquaint himself with himself all over again. This go-around, however, the guitar would replace his mother’s piano, with his love of folk, soul, the blues, and jazz seasoning his storytelling. “Oh, there’s definitely a jazzy feel to pretty much everything he does,” one fellow musician describes. “He’s like James Taylor meets John Mayer in a jazz club.”
Opening the show is Eric Soullivin, who's original music of folk, americana and blues will guide you into a sonic dream of wonderment and bliss while keeping your feet grounded firmly on the Earth. Show begins at 7:30, and there is a suggested donation of $15 at the door.

Special Screening: Bob Marley "Uprising Live!"

"Uprising Live" is the first ever DVD release of this classic concert, which originally aired on the famed German television series Rockpalast, from Bob Marley’s final tour.The Uprising Tour ran in Europe from May 30th to July 13th 1980 with five further dates in the USA in September. It was Bob Marley’s last tour before his tragically early passing in May 1981, at the age of just 36. The tour was in support of the Uprising album, (released June 10th, 1980) and just a few days later, this show would be filmed from Dortmund’s Westfalen Stadium in Germeny. Now, Rockpalast is presented here on DVD for the first time, with footage fully restored under the supervision of Cedella Marley and Ziggy Marley.

On Uprising Live!, Bob Marley is in superb form and deliver a set full of energy and charisma, including the icon songs “No Woman, No Cry,” “Exodus,” “I Shot The Sheriff,” “Redemption Song,” “Is This Love,” “Jamming,” “Get Up, Stand Up,” “Could This Be Loved” and many more. The show opens with a short set by the I Threes – Marley’s backing vocalists – who traditionally would perform a few songs before Marley took the stage.

Bob Marley and the Wailers were a Jamaican reggae band led by Bob Marley which developed from the earlier ska vocal group, the Wailers, created by Marley with Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer in 1963. By late 1963 singers Junior Braithwaite, Beverley Kelso, and Cherry Smith had joined the Wailers. By the early 1970s, Marley and Bunny Wailer had learned to play some instruments and brothers Aston "Family Man" Barrett and Carlton Barrett, had joined the band. After Bunny Wailer and Peter Tosh left the band in 1974, Marley began touring with new band members. His new backing band included the Barrett brothers, Junior Marvin and Al Anderson on lead guitar, Tyrone Downie and Earl "Wya" Lindo on keyboards, and Alvin "Seeco" Patterson on percussion. The "I Threes", consisting of Judy Mowatt, Marcia Griffiths, and Marley's wife, Rita, provided backing vocals.

Taylor Quinn

A native Southern Californian, Taylor Quinn is a Producer/Composer/Musician born and raised on the beach of Ventura. One could say that Taylor was immersed in music at birth, since his father Steve is also a songwriter and musician. "I remember even as a young kid, seeing and hearing my dad create and record his own music. On my 8th birthday he took me to my first concert, Steel Pulse live at the Santa Barbara bowl and it changed my life. That's when I fell in love with music. The following summer, a friend of my eldest sister brought over a video of Bob Marley performing live. I was absolutely blown away by the power and inspiration of his music, that night I decided I was going to be a musician too.” Says Taylor. 

His parents saw he really had a love and a passion to play so, at 14 they bought his first new set of drums. He spent the next 4 years on that drum set, learning and developing his craft. At 18 Taylor set out on his journey to becoming an accomplished musician like those Reggae, R&B and Soul legends who have influenced him. 

After years of engineering and recording songs for other artists, while at the same time learning to play bass and guitar, Taylor decided to fulfill his own dream of being a solo artist - performing his own compositions. In March of 2016 that lifelong dream was realized by his very first solo effort and debut Ep titled: On The Inside. 

Taylor will be performing a set of solo work, and then inviting other musicians on stage for a full band set. Local singer/songwriter David Tate will open the show at 7:30. $15 suggested donation at the door.
