Sunday Jazz Brunch feat. Kathy Lyon & Jim Anderson
2 p.m. to 8 p.m.
With his raspy, soulful voice and instantly memorable original songs, roots-rocking multi-instrumentalist Eric Lindell is a true one-of-a-kind talent. Mixing West Coast rock and swampy Gulf Coast R&B with honky tonk country and Memphis soul, Lindell creates American roots music that is both surprisingly fresh and sweetly familiar. Since his first self-release over two decades ago, Lindell has earned critical and popular acclaim, first in his dual home bases of Louisiana and Northern California and then across the country. Although influenced by American roots music from blues to country to rock, Lindell’s style is all his own. He has performed thousands of gigs in roadhouses, clubs, concert halls and festivals and has appeared on national radio and television. His live shows overflow with happy, dancing people singing the words to every song.
Whiskey and Water
What started as a few like-minded individuals with a penchant for sultry melodies and powerful blues vocals has now evolved into a quartet of warm southern sounds that just might get your feet moving and your mind in line. Whiskey & Water provides the perfect combination of whiskey-rough drinking sounds and smooth, flowing rhythms that are guaranteed to perfectly accompany any fine bottle of spirits. From New Orleans blues to dancing in the grass tempos the music of Whiskey & Water is a taste everyone should savor.
Chris Godber isn’t just another sax player. When Godber performs his goal is not just to entertain, but to inspire. Despite being told by doctors he wouldn’t be able to play the saxophone due to of the severity of his asthma, Godber took to it anyway. Picking up the sax in middle school band at age 12, Godber has been leaving others breathless ever since. He was first drawn to the sound of the saxophone while living in Germany. His family was military and while being stationed overseas the majority of their entertainment came from music as they only received one channel on their television. As Godber recalls, “I was a product of the 80’s and Kenny G was getting pretty popular around that time. My parents were Big Kenny G fans!” No doubt it may have sparked his appreciation for the saxophone, but he definitely has a sound all his own with a healthy dose of R&B and Gospel roots showing through.
