“As grand master of the Bluesbreakers, many of you know me for my long tradition of hiring the best blues guitarists in the business and I am happy to count Kal David as one of the best.... What a talent!” –John Mayall

hanck

You might not know his name, but Kal David is an almost unparalled guitarist in the Blues and Rhythm & Blues field who has played with all the greats over the years. Kal David is a musician’s musician. He is a triple- threat performer whose star is only now beginning to shine. He plays guitar with the unbridled passion of Albert King. His singing voice is rich, articulate and soulful. He is also one of the more underrated song- writers out there.

Born and raised in Chicago, Kal’s recording career began as a teenager when, he was signed to a contract with Vee-Jay Records. Another member of the group was Peter Cetera, who later became the vocalist for a band known as Chicago. Kal moved to Woodstock, New York, where he formed the Fabulous Rhinestones with ex-Electric Flag bassist Harvey Brooks. They recorded three well- received albums: Fabulous Rhinestones, Freewheelin’ for Paramount Records, and Rhinestones for 20th Century Records.

While in Woodstock Kal met his singing, writing and production partner, Miss Lauri Bono, who is a featured member of Kal’s band. After a move to Los Angeles in 1978, Kal and Lauri made a commitment to the Blues. In the studio or on tour, it was evident in their work with Blues great, Etta James, or Louisiana’s own, Johnny Rivers, Kal on guitar and Miss Lauri and Kal on vocals. In the mid eighties Miss Lauri did a short stint with Bette Midler as a Harlette and Kal joined John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers as featured vocalist and guitarist, replacing Mick Taylor.

To fully experience Kal David’s tremendous talent, you must see him live. Kal’s soul-baring voice and blazing guitar playing along with Miss Lauri’s sassy, soulful vocals will provide you with an unparalleled electrifying performance!

“I had found my favorite guitar players all wrapped up in one. Kal’s vocal style and sound matched his guitar playing – it was also the “real deal.” Growing up in Chicago had served him well. However, his singing and playing have since evolved into much more. Kal David has become a combo of all the best Blues guitar and vocal styles of the last 35 years....” –Johnny Rivers

Then he joined drummer Jeff Hamilton’s exuberant trio. Fuller went on to play with a jazz legend: bassist Ray Brown. He was the last pianist in the Ray Brown trio before Brown passed away in 2002. Next was an eight-year engagement as a member of the superb John Pizzarelli Quartet, which toured the world extensively. Fuller is now focusing on being a leader and continues to travel around the world, playing clubs and festivals. Joining him for this concert will be Russ Botten, a veteran Vancouver bassist who toured with Fuller’s first prominent bandleader, Ernestine Anderson. Botten has also performed with Diana Krall, Herb Ellis, Clark Terry, and many others.

fuller

Don Alder often referred to as the “Hendrix” of Acoustic Guitar is a Multi-Award Winning Acoustic guitarist from Canada. Hot off his recent performance with Chris Hadfield, Commander of the Intl’ Space Station, Alder continues to “Wow” audiences around the world with his “jaw dropping” one man band act. His singing is soulful and heartfelt and his story telling and guitar playing is highly entertaining. Guitar Player Magazine says, “People will stand and clap for Alder as he is a Guitar Star in the making and can hold an audience with the best of the seasoned pros”.

Ray Daniels, the Manager of Rush, says, “Alder’s unique style of playing with simultaneous percussion creates a wall of sound and should be famous around the world”. Alder’s music also speaks for itself; his 2009 CD “Not A Planet” was nominated for two prestigious Music Industry Awards, his YouTube videos have seen over 3.5 million views. His music is a unique combination of deeply textured melody and story. Lyrical and compelling, his original songs are notes of exploration – some passionate and haunting, some hard-driven, others light and teasing. In quiet pieces or pushing right to the edge, Don's phenomenal finger style playing and rich voice captivate. Don is also recognized as one of the of the world's top harp guitarists.

As winner of the 2011 Worldwide Guitar Idol (held in London, UK), 2010 Guitar Superstar contest (LA, USA) and the 2007 International Finger style Championships, Don Alder has earned his place as one of the top acoustic guitarists in the world and is the only guitarist to win all of the top prestigious guitar competitions armed with just an acoustic guitar.

His dedication has allowed him to achieve what few guitarists have achieved—winning all of the high profile guitar competitions and performing with a passion that is rarely seen. Don’s performance in Malaysia (2013) garnered him a Brand Laureate Award. The only other Canadian to receive this award was Chris Hadfield (astronaut). This award is to recognize Don’s unique contributions using his guitar and music to help and inspire others around the world. Alder and Commander Hadfield were recently paired for a special performance of Space Oddity with Don using the harp guitar to support Hadfield’s singing. Alder also has an uncanny ability to entertain any type of audience; he has been invited to play special performances (by invite only) including TED-Vancouver, Sam Sullivan’s Public Salon, The Vancouver Olympics and International All Star Guitar Nights to mention a few. Don has also been called upon to perform duets with artists such as Grammy winners John Parr and Angelique Kidjo for an audience of 40,000. He has also earned top honors for his duet jams with modern poets such as Shane Koyczyan and Kyprios His music has been used in documentaries, corporate videos and movies.

BARNEY BENTALL

Friday Oct.31st & Saturday Nov.1, 2014 | Doors: 7:00 pm | Show 8:00 pm




bb

A legend in his own right, Vancouver-based Barney Bentall has been creating music since 1978. Throughout his career, he has released three independent albums and seven studio albums. In the late eighties, Barney Bentall formed The Legendary Hearts. Their self-titled debut reached Platinum status in Canada, featured three hit singles including “Something to Live For”, and garnered a Juno Award.

In 2000, Bentall switched gears completely and moved to British Columbia's Cariboo region to operate a cattle ranch. With this incredible shift came a great change in perspective, which was the impetus for his 2007 solo release, Gift Horse. "Although I spent a lot of time working on the ranch, I never fully removed myself from music", says Bentall. "I still played, but it might have been the lack of applause that brought me back," he laughs. "We all have different paths. My time on the ranch was what I needed. It kept me grounded and made me stronger. It also made me appreciate music that much more. It solidified my journey as a singer, songwriter and musician."

Barney Bentall continues to move through life with his wife Kath, an ever-increasing tribe of in-laws and grandchildren, and a new studio album titled Flesh & Bone.
