Lunasa with Special Guest Tim O’Brien

Genre: Irish

  1. Monday, March 14 7:30 PM (All ages)

One of the most esteemed singer-songwriter and instrumentalists of his generation joins forces with “the hottest Irish band on the planet.” Lunasa was founded in 1997, and with the group’s superb musicianship has brought new energy to the Celtic tradition. An immense talent, one measure of Tim O’Brien’s stature in the music world is the list of artists who perform his songs, including the Dixie Chicks, Garth Brooks, Dierks Bentley, Nickel Creek, and Kathy Mattea. Two Big Room favorites come back to Chico together for a rip-roaring concert nod to St. Patrick.

Named for an ancient Celtic harvest festival in honor of the Irish god Lugh, patron of the arts, Lúnasa is indeed a gathering of some of the top musical talents in Ireland. Its members have helped form the backbone of some of the greatest Irish groups of the decade.

Bassist Trevor Hutchinson was a key member of The Waterboys, and later he, with guitarist Donogh Hennessy, would form the dynamic rhythm section of The Sharon Shannon Band; Ed Boyd (Flook, Michael McGoldrick Band) has recently replaced Hennessy; Fiddler Sean Smyth is an All-Ireland champion who has played with Donal Lunny’s Coolfin; Kevin Crawford, considered to be among the finest flutists in Ireland played with the acclaimed traditional group Moving Cloud; and, piper Cillian Vallely of the famous Vallely artistic clan has performed with Riverdance and recently recorded with Bruce Springsteen. Folk Roots magazine has rightly termed them an “Irish music dream team.”

Mack Avenue Super Band

Genre: Jazz

  1. Tuesday, April 05 7:00 PM (All ages)
  2. Tuesday, April 05 9:30 PM (21+)

“These are musicians with the cojones to play as part of an ensemble, where the whole is more important than the parts.”  SEATTLEPI.COM

The lineup for this night is:

Tia Fuller / Saxophone

Kirk Whalum / Saxophone

Christian McBride / Bass

Christian Sands / Piano

Ulysses Owens / Drums

The MACK AVENUE SUPERBAND has become synonymous with stellar line-ups consisting of established and up and coming jazz artists with pronounced identities and original grooves. This year’s group presented exclusively for the 2015-2016 season and featuring Gary Burton and Christian McBride as musical directors, tops them all.

Seven-time GRAMMY® Award winning vibraphonist and jazz legend GARY BURTON made his first recordings at age seventeen, and has toured and recorded with a who’s who of famous jazz masters including Chick Corea, Pat Metheny, and Stan Getz to name a few. The Washington Post stated, “[Burton] …knows a thing or two about what makes a jazz collaboration truly special.”

Saxophonist TIA FULLER, is at home at all points of the music spectrum – from her show-stopping solos as a member of superstar Beyoncé’s all-female band, to her scintillatingly swinging jazz dates and recordings. For this season’s Super Band, Fuller brings her fire and punch, rhythmic freedom and drive, and her youthful twisting of genres she’s gained from a life in both top-of-the-charts pop and jazz.

SEAN JONES plays the trumpet with intense immediacy and urgency, hewing to the jazz tradition, but moving the music forward at the same time. After stepping down from his longtime position as Lead Trumpeter of the Jazz At Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis and then touring with Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock’s Tribute To Miles, Sean has established himself as a formidable leader through his recordings and live performances.

The foundation of the Super Band is musical director and bassist CHRISTIAN McBRIDE with his compatriots, pianist CHRISTIAN SANDS and drummer CARL ALLEN. Both of whom have been performing in McBride’s Trio and Quintet for several years, honing their conception to a fine point of expressive depth and nuance through select performances around the world.  “The real core,” Christian says of this rhythm section, “is hardcore swingin,’ blues and the American songbook. Part of that is because Christian [Sands] is so well-rounded and willing to go to so many places".  Carl Allen one of the most recorded jazz drummers of all time, with over 200 recordings to his credit.

Please note Gary Burton will not be at this show.

Marty Balin of Jefferson Airplane

Genre: Acoustic Rock , Singer-songwriter

  1. Saturday, June 18 8:00 PM (All ages)

“Marty was the one who started the San Francisco scene”, says Bill Thompson, Balin’s roommate back in the mid-’60s and former manager of both the Jefferson Airplane and Jefferson Starship. “Back in those days Marty was quite the businessman” said Paul Kantner. “He was the leader of the band on that level. He was the one who pushed us to do all the business stuff, orchestrating, thinking ahead, looking for managers and club opportunities. He was very good at it”. The Jefferson Airplane, initially a folk-rock venture, came to epitomize the psychedelic scene, scoring a gold record with their 1967 second album, Surrealistic Pillow. Balin’s soulful tenor proved a pivotal element of their sound. He also wrote key compositions including “It’s No Secret” “Today,” “Comin’ Back To Me” “Plastic Fantastic Lover” “Share a Little Joke,” and “Volunteers.”

Massy Ferguson "Everyone Gets an" Album Release w/ Nick Foster Band

Genre: Americana , Rock

  1. Friday, June 17 8:00 PM (All ages)

Massy Ferguson celebrates the release of their first full-length album in over 3 years, "Run It Right Into the Wall" as part of this special Triple Door performance.  All ticket holders will receive a copy of the record. VIP tickets available -- meet and greet with the band beforehand in the Green Room and the Red Room with complimentary snacks, exclusive gift-bags and merchandise, prime seating for the show

You know only good things can come from a band that named itself after a farm-equipment company.  Their songs are steeped in the classic Americana of the Uncle Tupelo, the Jayhawks, and the Backsliders. Rich with imagery of highways, truck-stop coffee, whiskey, road-weariness, and bad motels, Massy Ferguson make roots music about the blue-collar aspects of our nation.

Singer-bassist Ethan Anderson says the sound is Americana that leans more toward rock than country. Think Drive-By Truckers or some combination of Son Volt and The Hold Steady. Think Springsteen’s “Greetings From Asbury Park” or “Nebraska.” Those influences, 1970s Southern rock and good-time classic rock bands like Thin Lizzy, have also helped them to land gigs at festivals and clubs in Australia, UK, Iceland, Germany, England and Mexico.

Nick Foster is a songwriter that makes use of a compelling folk and country style, ranging dynamically from stripped-down acoustic to a full ensemble with flavors of alternative country and rock. Supported by a revolving band of Seattle musicians, the lyrically driven songs are centered in a sincere and earnest tone and punctuated by an unyielding honesty.

He is most often joined on stage by guitarist Skyler Mehal, vocalist Jazmarae Beebe, bassist Matt Strutynski, keyboardist Charles Wicklander, drummer Tom Noble and other friends, including Dan Tyack, Natalie Hall and more.

Genre: Guitarist , Hawaiian

  1. Thursday, February 18 8:00 PM (All ages)
  2. Friday, February 19 8:00 PM (All ages)

LED KAAPANA grew up in a family of musicians in Kalapana, in the southernmost district of Hawaii Island. His teachers included his mother, Mama Tina Kaapana, from whom he learned to sing leo ki'eki'e (Hawaiian falsetto singing), and his uncle, Fred Punahoa. "We didn't have electricity, not television, not even much radio," says Kaapana. "So we entertained ourselves. You could go to any house and everybody was playing music." Throughout his career, Ledward has dedicated himself to perpetuating the traditional style and repertoire of his home, beginning in his teens with the musical group Hui ‘Ohana which produced 14 best-selling albums and became a key figure in the resurgence of traditional Hawaiian culture and music during the 1970s. Launching a solo career in 1983, Kaapana has continued to garner acclaim for his improvisational melodies and falsetto vocals. Recognition by his peers earned Led four Grammy nominations in his own right and three wins on slack key compilations. He has won multiple Nā Hōkū Hanohano (Hawai‘i’s “Grammy”) awards, including Favorite Entertainer of the Year in 2009.

GEORGE KAHUMOKU JR. lives on Maui with his wife, Nancy, maintaining their 3-acre farm, growing fruit and vegetables, dry-land taro (for his famous home-made poi) and tending goats, chickens, ducks, and miniature horses. With over 25 solo, collaboration, and compilation CDs to his name, George celebrates over 10 years of his famed weekly Slack Key Show on Maui, which produced 4 Grammy-winning CDs; his most recent solo CD was nominated for a 2012 Grammy in the Regional Roots category. He founded the Hawaiian Music Institute at University of Hawai‘i-Maui College to preserve the legacy of Hawaiian music and to prepare the next generation for careers in music. A renowned storyteller, George collaborated on the book A Hawaiian Life with long-time friend Paul Konwiser to capture his hilarious, entertaining on-stage stories. This project led to his film biography Seeds of Aloha. For the last 15 years, George Kahumoku Jr.’s Annual Maui Slack Key Guitar and ‘Ukulele Workshop creates one of the great musical learning experiences in the Islands today, and embodies George's belief in sharing, celebrating, and perpetuating the unique music and culture that is Hawai‘i.

JEFF PETERSON, was born on the Island of Maui and grew up on the slopes of the Haleakala volcano where he was introduced to the rich heritage of Hawaiian music and to guitar by his father, a paniolo (Hawaiian cowboy) on Haleakala Ranch. At an early age, he began to pick up influences from such Hawai‘i slack key greats as the Gabby Pahinui Band, Leonard Kwan, and Sonny Chillingworth. As he began studying on his own, he delved into a wide variety of musical genres for guitar and went on to study jazz and classical guitar. Five of Jeff’s songs are featured in the award-winning George Clooney film The Descendants. A two-time Grammy winner, Jeff was featured on Slack Key Guitar, Volume 2 which won the first-ever Grammy Award for Best Hawaiian recording, and received his second Grammy in 2010 for his contribution to George Kahumoku’s Masters of Slack Key Guitar vol. 2. He has recorded 6 solo CDs to date, winning Best Slack Key Album at the 2010 & 2014 Na Hoku Hanohano (Hawaiian Grammy) Awards and a Grammy nomination for Maui on My Mind. Jeff has worked with a wide range of artists including Eric Clapton, Led Kaapana, James Galway, Michael Feinstein, and the Honolulu Symphony, among others.
