Chris Yeaton and Adam Werner - traditional slack key and progressive fingerstyle guitar  
Sutter Creek Theatre www.suttercreektheatre.com 
Saturday, July 19, 2014 - 8:00 pm 
$18 adv / $20 day of show
Hawaiian-born, Chris Yeaton draws from a lineage of great Hawaiian slack key tradition. His musical inspiration and journey begins with one of Hawaii's most celebrated musicians, master Slack Key guitarist Keola Beamer, and would continue with Big Island Slack Key master John Keawe. Yeaton credits his good friend and guitar guru, Gordon Rowland, for providing his first opportunity to perform on stage in front of a live audience.
Adam Werner is a solo acoustic guitarist with an interest in unconventional techniques, styles and applications to fingerstyle guitar playing. He has an impressive musical background of experience and education. Adam continues to move forward and grow as an accomplished musician and artist. Indigenous to California, Adam grew up with rock guitar legends, such as: Randy Rhoads, Steve Vai and Joe Satriani, among many others. Adam started his first rock band, IMAGINE, in the early 1990's and gained much respect as an innovative and progressive musician who incorporated odd meters, unorthodox key changes and intricate instrumentation with compositions that pushed the boundaries of rock music. 


Occidental Gypsy - Up tempo Gypsy pop 
Sutter Creek Theatre www.suttercreektheatre.com 
Sunday, July 20, 2014 - 4:00 pm 
$18 adv / $20 day of show
Occidental Gypsy is pioneering the sound of World Gypsy music. Their mélange of uptempo, high-energy rhythms of gypsy swing, melded with the catchy melodic hooks of pop and complex structures of jazz delivers a thrilling auditory experience to listeners. Occidental Gypsy’s sound is appealing to a wide spectrum of people, and their shows consistently attract enthusiastic audiences at colleges, arts centers, festivals and clubs. Their fans include musicians who enjoy the sophisticated compositions and masterful play, yet most folks just come to enjoy the music and dance. The band has found a unique beat and bestows a dynamic mix of original vocal and instrumental pieces– and a few memorable standards– in fun, exhilarating performances. Occidental Gypsy’s music cannot be easily classified; a bit of jazz, a catchy strain of pop, and “a whole lotta gypsified swing…”
