About this Event

Western swing music has deep roots in California. Whether it’s Bob Wills famous band filling dance halls and making Hollywood movies in the 40’s and 50’s, Asleep at the Wheel’s Marin county tenure in the 70’s, the great Lost Weekend band from the east bay that continues to this day or Sonoma country’s own Western Swing Caravan this is music that that recalls the enormously popular swing dance music of the Texas Playboys!

What is Western Swing? Simply, it’s infectious dance music that melds the fiddle music tradition of Texas honky tonks and the south east, with classic country music familiar to fans of music that came out of Bakersfield and the rough and tumble side of Nashville’s glory years.

The Western Swing Caravan is a collection of many of the bay area’s finest musician’s:

Bobby Black– steel guitar & infectious grin

Tim Sarter– bass, vocals, impeccable timing

Cori Wood– lead & harmony vocals, authentic country girl

Michael Stadler– fiddle, mandolin, powerhouse vocals

Rick Cutler– drums, fancy shirts, the human metronome

Kevin Russell– guitar, vocals, set list maker

Candy Girard– fiddle, sweet vocals, cowgirl sensibility

Paul Shelasky– fiddle, cringe worthy jokes
