Thursday, December 22nd 8pm-10pm

Bruce Foreman-Guitar, Rick Walker (Santa Cruz drummer/composer, Steve Uccello-Bass
Pierce Ranch Vineyards Tasting Room 499 Wave st. Monterey, CA – on Cannery Row

Bruce Forman will have his new Resophonic Steel Bodied guitar and we’ll be doing kind of an acoustic/swampy/jazz mix. I will be playing upright bass and my own Resophonic 6 string bass. It should be quite a combo! Rick Walker is a master drummer/multi-instrumentalist and is also the founder of the “Y2K International Live Looping Festivals” (that have run for the last 16 years bringing artists from all over the world to Santa Cruz as well as inspiring many other live looping festivals around the world). He’ll be playing hand percussion as well as a drum kit, bringing a rootsy/world music vibe.
