classic country in our canyon moonlight series
But it’s still, August, so here they are, big as life!
This classic/outlaw country band, featuring pedal steel ace Joe Goldmark, long, tall, loquacious guitarist/vocalist Mitch Polzak, and solid rocking drummer Kenny Owen have just bid “so long” to long-time Seducer Eddie Kendrick, who got himself seduced into marriage. Silver wings have taken Eddie to bliss in Colorado. We’ll all miss him a whole lot, more than we can express! But the Seducers will work their magic in new and sweetly familiar ways, with Hank Maninger on bass and vocals. If Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson are your glass of bourbon, this is your music.
This weekly Sunday night series that we’ve been calling canyon moonlight music was inaugurated in September of 2015 when The Riptide, the hallowed Sunset District bar out on Taraval by the beach, was badly damaged by a two-alarm fire. We’ve been pleased to be able to offer monthly bookings to many musicians who lost a valued gig when that bar had to shut down for the arduous task of repair. And we’ve been amply rewarded with a year of Sundays of wonderful music.
With the imminent return of the Riptide, expected to reopen any day now, we’re moving the canyon moonlight series to Thursday nights starting in September, and will be carrying on the new tradition of country, blues and rockabilly bookings we’ve come to enjoy at Bird & Beckett in that 7:30-10 pm time slot. The Seducers will continue to be a big part of that tradition!
Our events are put on under the umbrella of the nonprofit Bird & Beckett Cultural Legacy Project (the "BBCLP"). That's how we fund our ambitious schedule of 300 or so concerts and literary events every year.
The BBCLP is a 501(c)(3) non-profit...
