THE SOFT WHITE SIXTIES
1055 5th Avenue, San DiegoNovember 5th
Five years together, and the members of The Soft White Sixties have rarely sat still. They've lived much of their life in a 15-passenger van, traversing the country, whipping up new riffs, new rhythms, new lyrics and then, almost immediately, breaking them out onstage. For these hard-working musicians, it was simply a way of life.
For the Sixties, who'd released their debut full-length album, Get Right in 2014, capturing a certain vibe and a particular mood for their next batch of recordings was essential. The band always took an 'all hands on deck' approach to writing, but in the past they chiseled their song
arrangements on stage without a clear sense of direction for the final result. For the next album the musical collective — which includes bassist Ryan Noble and drummer Joey Bustos - made a conscious decision to apply a forward-thinking kind of approach, continually asking the question 'what kind of band do we want to be?' To further ensure an open-book approach to the sessions, the band enlisted producer/mixer Matt Linesch (Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes, Dave Mason), working with him at United Recording in Los Angeles. "Matt was almost like a fifth member, at times," Eisenberg says. "He embraced our new approach, while really stressing the importance
of the music not being perfect. It's a human form of expression."

Alabama is the band that changed everything by bringing Country music to the mainstream. They are the band that introduced rock-style guitars, lights, and pyrotechnics to the Country audience and they are bringing their "Southern Drawl Tour" to The Special Events Center at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino on Saturday, November 11, 2017.
The story of Alabama is a classic American tale of rags to riches. From humble beginnings picking cotton in the fields of Fort Payne, Alabama, Randy, Jeff and Teddy became international stars that went on to sell 73 million albums while changing the face and sound of Country music.
In 1980 the band broke through with their first Top 20 hit "My Home's In Alabama." What followed was a string of hits like "Mountain Music,"
"Born Country," "Forever's As Far As I'll Go," "(God Must Have Spent) A Little More Time on You" and "If You're Gonna Play In Texas (You Gotta Have a Fiddle in the Band)," a run of success that is legendary in the history of Country music.
Alabama released a new studio album called Southern Drawl in 2015 which landed them on the covers of USA Today, People Magazine, Rolling Stone and Country Weekly. Adding a new chapter to an already iconic legacy can be a little tricky, but the album skillfully walks the line between the fresh and familiar, featuring a potent collection of songs for a new generation of Alabama lovers while also giving longtime fans plenty of reasons to rejoice.
Critics and fans alike continue to shower Alabama with accolades. They were honored with the ACM Career Achievement Award at the Ryman Auditorium in 2016 and were awarded "Album Of The Year" at the 2015 Dove Awards for Angels Among Us. 40 years after their founding, Alabama is still going strong and they continue to roll on.

Travis Tritt Solo Acoustic
coming toNovember 9th & 10th
More than 27 years after Travis Tritt launched his music career, the Southern rock influenced artist continues to display strong sales activity, sell-out shows, and stay true and relevant to country music fans across the globe. Continuously performing shows and withholding a heavy appearance schedule, Tritt is proving to be unstoppable.
The highly abbreviated Tritt timeline started when the young Marietta, Georgia native incorporated his lifelong influences of Southern rock, blues and gospel into his country during a honky-tonk apprenticeship that led him to Warner Bros. in 1989.Over the course of a decade, Travis released seven studio albums and a greatest hits package for the label. His 1990 debut Country Club and its succession of hits put him in the vanguard of the
genre's early '90s boom, dubbing him as one of The Class of 89,which included country music superstars Garth Brooks, Clint Black and Alan Jackson; all whom dominated the charts in the early 90s.
