at the Gualala Arts Center
Brewing up a combination of local talent and local suds, Switchville returns to Gualala Arts for a dance concert on August 4, a little over one year after their first appearance at Gualala Arts, when the group performed the inaugural concert of LocalEyes, the series that showcases home-grown talent and compliments the other performance art programs at Gualala Arts.
Playing the music of the 60's and 70's, Switchville is well known on the local party scene. Steve May plays drums and provides vocals when he is not running Surf Super. Rich Thomure on guitar and Jim Iverson on bass also sing. Gary Bluhm shows his uncanny ability to play all styles as lead guitarist.
The no-host bar will feature organic draft beer from Butte Creek Brewery, locally owned by John Powers. Wine, soft drinks, and some light food dishes will also be on sale.
Another local performer, Texas Jon, aka David Jones, will kick off the evening's entertainment. As his moniker implies, Texas Jon did not grow up on the coast, but he has been on the local scene for a long time. He last demonstrated his unique brand of folk music with a message at Gualala Arts last February when he gave a benefit concert for Pacific Community Charter School.
Doors of the Coleman Auditorium open at 7:30 p.m. with the entertainment begin at 8:00 p.m. Dancing will continue through the night until 11:00 p.m.. For tickets ($8 advance and $10 day of show) or more information, contact the Gualala Arts office at 884-1138 during normal business hours.
The Gualala Arts Center is located at 46501 Old State Highway in Gualala, CA.
