Sideline headlines benefit for Save the H
Submitted By Bruce Roberts
Bluegrass music makes me twitch. My feet tap, my fingers dance, my hands slap out the beat. I even think my ears wiggle and my eyebrows jump, pulled inexorably into the mesmerizing rhythms of guitar, bass, mandolin, fiddle, and especially the banjo. And, by the end of any performance, IÕm exhausted!
ThatÕs why itÕs best to be well-rested on December 7, when the new bluegrass Òsuper group,Ó Sideline, performs in the Music Building Concert Hall at Cal State East Bay, MB1055.
Proceeds from this show will also benefit HaywardÕs ÒSave the HÓ Project, a movement to create a park commemorating the magnificent old high school that was the educational center of Hayward for over fifty years.
A ÒsupergroupÓ means that top performers from several top bands have joined together, forming a band of All-Star quality that raises bluegrass to new heights with every song. In this case, musicians from IIIrd Tyme Out, the Darrell Webb Band, Mountain Heart, and Cherryholmes have blended into a wonderful collaboration.
Darrell Webb on mandolin, Skip Cherryholmes on guitar, fiddler Justen Haynes, bassist Jason Moore, and the hot licks banjo of Steve Dilling, all work together for an over-the-top performance of traditional bluegrass done with their own innovative style. Check out their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/sideline2.
So rest up for Saturday, December 7, at 7 p.m., when a $20 donation gives bluegrass fans the chance to preserve important local history, and enjoy a terrific show too.
Parking is free and for more information, or tickets in advance, call or email Maria Nadauld: (510) 828-6961 or firstname.lastname@example.org
