Soul, rock and Latin rhythm sounds on tap
Submitted By Kassie Shreve
Music lovers will want to stay in town this weekend to experience two evenings of live music and vocals at the Smoking Pig BBQ Restaurant on Mowry Avenue in Fremont.
First up at 9 p.m. Friday, Feb. 9, is a program of danger meeting sophistication in the soulful music of The Lucky Losers, San FranciscoÕs premiere male/female duet fronted band. Accompanied by a dynamic six-piece ensemble, veteran Bay Area artists, Cathy Lemons and Phil Berkowitz deliver a truly signature sound, layering elements of Stax/Volt styled rhythm and blues, electric Americana, and psychedelic rock atop a Chicago and Texas blues foundation.
The Lucky Losers were born in the summer of 2013 on a deserted road in Sedona, Arizona. With a Willie Dixon song on the stereo, Lemons and Berkowitz spontaneously began to sing together and felt a spark of magic and came together to begin a new adventure, inspired by the vanishing art of duet singing.
Next up will be the Patrón Latin Rhythms who will perform at 9 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 10. This band is a collaboration of well-seasoned professional musicians with diverse backgrounds who play different styles of Latin music including, jazz, rock, mambo, and even old school rhythm and blues with Latin funk.
The bandÕs goal is to inspire the dancing spirit in everyone with driving percussion rhythms, hair-raising guitar licks, and a horn section that is reminiscent of Tower of Power.
Come for dinner and stay for the show.
