The Jimmys

The Jimmys have been tearing up stages with their blend of blues, soul, funk and R&B for nearly 10 years. Award-winning keyboardist/singer/songwriter Jimmy Voegeli has assembled an all-star lineup: Perry Weber, veteran guitarist/singer/songwriter brings an authentic blues sound; Mauro Magellan, of the Georgia Satellites, drives the band with some mighty drumming; John Wartenweiler ties it up with powerful bass lines and a deep groove. The Amateur Horn Stars - Pete Ross, Saxophone; Darren Sterud, trombone; and Mike Boman, trumpet - combine 50+ years' experience touring the world, playing with Clyde Stubblefield, the Glenn Miller Orchestra, Davina and the Vagabonds, Youngblood Brass Band, B.B. King and his All Stars, and many others. With multiple awards under their belts, and a growing legion of fans, the band will crush anyone in their path on their way toward absolute galactic domination [we're pretty sure no one ever reads this far]. Get yourself to the next performance and see what everyone's hollerin' about. Keep up to date at www.TheJimmys.net and on Facebook & Twitter for show dates, pictures, and video from the road.

WOJB-FM and The Park Center present
Jeffrey Foucault w/ Dusty Heart

“Contemporary and timeless.” – The New York Times

“As a performer, Jeffrey Foucault has that enviable mix of great, unexpected songs and a warm and rugged stage presence that makes you feel alive and in awe all at once…’Salt as Wolves’ [is] his most satisfying record to date…it’s the record of a craftsman at the height of his powers.” – No Depression

“Pure songwriter… his songs are simple and powerful.” – NPR

"One of the finest songwriters of his generation, Jeffrey Foucault has taken, in his own words, ‘the small roads;’ building a brick and mortar independent international touring career of ten studio albums, countless miles and critical accolades. He’s been lauded for ‘Stark, literate songs that are as wide open as the landscape of his native Midwest’ (The New Yorker) and described as ‘Quietly brilliant’ (The Irish Times), while catching the ear of everyone from Greil Marcus to Don Henley (who regularly covers Foucault in his live set), to Van Dyke Parks (who offered to play on Foucault’s 2011 offering, Horse Latitudes, after catching a live radio interview). ‘Salt as wolves’ is a line from Othello describing boldness; a fitting title to frame a record of blues played bold and loosely, without rehearsal or cant. With his fifth collection of original songs Foucault stakes out and enlarges the ground he’s been working diligently all the new century, quietly building a deep, resonant catalog of songs about about love, memory, God, desire, wilderness and loss. SALT AS WOLVES gives us Jeffrey Foucault at the height of his powers.

Rich vocal harmonies merge with intimate layers of guitar, fiddle and banjo to define the lush sound of the recently formed duo, Dusty Heart. Barbara Jean and Molly Dean are two songwriters recognized in their own right for their poetic lyrics and distinct vocal styles that when combined as Dusty Heart fuse to create a powerful and haunting sound that takes on a life of its own.

The pair met in the bustling Minneapolis music scene and became fast friends as well as fans and supporters of one another’s work. Bonding over their refusal to be pigeonholed musically or otherwise, their shared wanderlust and love of adventure, a passion for the open road, vast landscapes, and a mutual love for musical harmony, the two decided to join forces crafting a sound that bridges together the diverse musical worlds of roots, indie, and folk. As soon as they embarked on their collaborative journey, Dusty Heart was off to a running start, receiving an invitation to open a series of sold-out shows supporting Dave Simonett and Dave Carroll of Trampled by Turtles across the state of Colorado."

“Dusty Heart combines great songs with lucid harmony and stunning musical talent.” – Dave Simonett, Trampled By Turtles

Tickets are $20/advance, $25/door, $5/students (18 and younger).
Tickets are available in advance at Art Beat of Hayward, 15845 W. 2nd Street or may be purchased ONLINE.
