OAKHURST — The Golden Chain Theatre Concert Series presents the second annual Classic Country & Rock Music Festival from noon – 8 p.m. on Saturday, Apr. 23.
Enjoy eight hours of music, beginning at noon with Rene Emilio, a self taught musician and songwriter, who specializes in all types of music, including country and jazz, who has been entertaining for over three decades.
Also on the bill is Rocktherapy. This classic rock cover band features hits from Journey, Led Zeppelin, The Eagles, Nora Jones and many more. Rocktherapy is a group of local musicians including Jolinda Thomas, lead vocal; Bill Samuelson, lead guitar/vocal; Michael Davis, rhythm guitar/vocal; Annette Marie, keyboards; Don Telian on drums; Jon on the bass; and Lynn Fullmer sound tech.
The Bryan Vickers Band will play from 6 – 8 p.m., creating familiar sounds with a unique and modern edge. These three young men from California blend elements of rock, funk, blues, and soul with a modern feel. Quetzal Uriel Andrade’s exciting drum acrobatics and his older brother Quetzal Emanuel Andrade’s bass and keyboard tour de force provide the perfect backdrop for Bryan’s versatile guitar playing and bluesy rock vocals. Playing an eclectic set of original songs and a choice selection of stylistically similar covers, the trio creates a very fresh and full sound.
The show will also include dozens of top-flight musicians from across central California.
The day’s festivities will include the GCT’s full-service saloon plus hamburgers, hot dogs and barbecued tri-tip sandwiches.
Tickets are just $20 in advance or $25 at the door. A special rate of $15 is available for seniors, children, and active military members.
