About John Pemberton

John Pemberton has been playing music since the tender age of five and performing since age ten, when he and his parents began playing at venues throughout the Fresno area as a family band. A skilled guitarist and singer, Pemberton branched out on his own, getting his start as a country and gospel musician at local joints like the Red Caboose Café. Pemberton describes his style as a traditional country. He performs songs popularized by artists like George Strait, Merle Haggard, and Alan Jackson, and says he occasionally throws in a Blake Shelton or Luke Bryan cover.

Early seating is available for a small fee. Call for more information at 559-841-4478.

Tony Furtado was born in Pleasanton, California. He took up the banjo at age 12, inspired by the Beverly Hillbillies television show and a sixth-grade music report. He studied music and art at California State, Hayward. He first attracted national attention in 1987, when he won the National Bluegrass Banjo Championship in Winfield, Kansas. Then he toured with bluegrass musician Laurie Lewis.

In 1990, Tony signed a recording deal with Rounder Records, one of the country’s preeminent independent record companies. Beginning with Swamped in 1990, he recorded six critically acclaimed albums for the label, collaborating with such master musicians as Alison Krauss, Jerry Douglas, Tim O’Brien, Stuart Duncan, Kelly Joe Phelps and Mike Marshall. During this period, Tony also performed and recorded with the band SugarBeat and the Rounder Banjo Extravaganza with Tony Trischka and Tom Adams.

Beginning in the late 1990s – influenced by such musicians as Ry Cooder, David Lindley, and Taj Mahal – Tony added slide guitar, singing and songwriting to his musical toolbox and began leading his own band.
