12:00am [12:00am] JEFFREY HALFORD & THE HEALERS (cont.)
Description:
“Americana Roots Rock”

Jeffrey Halford - guitar/ vocals
Paul Olguin - bass/ vocals
Adam Rossi - keys/ percussion/ vocals
Mike Messer - drums

"A talented wordsmith with the soul of a rugged roadhouse rocker." - No Depression
                
Halford delivers a uniquely American melting pot of roots, blues, rock, and kick-ass pop – take some Southern soul, add a heap of Texas storytelling, a dash of Bay Area’s freewheeling liberal spirit/literary leanings/seedier side, throw in some desert sunshine and dirt, then stir together with an architect’s eye for detail and durability.
He's played shows with some of the most acclaimed artists and songwriters, including Taj Mahal, Los Lobos, Etta James, The Radiators, Robert Earl Keen, John Hammond, Augie Meyers, Dave Alvin, Guy Clark, Chuck Prophet, Greg Allman, among others.

11:00pm [11:00pm] RAY OBIEDO & MISTURA FINA
Description:
"Brazilian, Carribean and Latin Jazz"

Ray Obiedo - guitar
Sandy Cressman - vocals
Phil Hawkins -drums/ steel pans
Alex Murzyn -flute & sax
Bob Karty - keys
David Belove - bass
Derek Rolando - percussion

Guitarist and composer, Ray Obiedo, formed Mistura Fina to explore his great love of Latin music.
Obiedo’s compositions for the group are drawn from his many musical influences --including contemporary jazz, funk, Caribbean, R&B, pop and Latin music. Mistura Fina works with a wonderfully rich array of textures and colors, melding together all of its musical elements for a delightfully distinctive Bay Area flavor. While there is the heavy influence of Brazilian & Afro Cuban rhythms, a traditional West Coast Latin Jazz sound is always at the core of this ensemble.

In his illustrious career, Ray has played and/or toured with Sheila E, Pete Escovedo, Herbie Hancock, George Duke, Lou Rawls, Johnny “Hammond” Smith, Julian Priester, Mark Soskin, Pee Wee Ellis, Fred Wesley and Rose Ann Diamalanta.
Obiedo's solo compositions have also attracted acclaim, and saw interpretations from Sheila E., vocal group The Whispers, and percussionist Pete Escovedo. Parts of this work have appeared on film soundtracks, most notably Michael Caine's “A Shock To The System” and Richard Gere's “Internal Affairs”.
Ray has recorded a clutch of solo albums for Windham Hill Jazz Records and leads his other band, The Ray Obiedo Group.
