But nothing beats being in the room
with the music & the musicians!

Sunday, June 26th – 4:30-6:30 pm: which way west?
Four formidable songwriters & musicians in one band:
Atkinson Kincheloe Beynon & Cefalu

Music industry veterans–country rockers–gifted songwriters–guitar pickers–vocalists adept at working in tandem to create harmonic magic, this band grew out of a winter of music and many more nights spent in front of living room fires, glowing with stories of music industry horrors, tales of perils of the road, memories of old alliances and changing times. Most importantly, nights filled with the sound of the music of veteran singer songwriters sharing what they do best. In the ensuing years, the alliance of Marty Atkinson, George Kincheloe & Scotty Beynon has made an indelible mark on the Northern California scene. In Frank Cefalu, well known as a member of the western swing band Back in the Saddle, they’ve found a kindred spirit, a sympathetic sensibility and a voice that fits theirs like a glove. In their association as Atkinson Kincheloe Beynon & Cefalu, the four are dedicated to “music made by friends for people who give a damn.” For a taste of what you’ll hear, check the music at this link. Hearing it in the warm acoustic environment of Bird & Beckett in real time will give you what you’ll really need.

George Kincheloe brings this band to us; in 1973 he left Boston for L.A. on the advice of Gram Parsons, working there with the likes of the Byrds’ Gene Clark, Al Kooper and others, then settling up here in Northern California working principally in two bands, Boardinghouse Reach and Hooligan, and appearing along the way in concert with such legendary musicians/bands as Dave Mason, The Doobie Brothers, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Elvin Bishop, Norton Buffalo, and Marty Balin.
