It’s summertime in the mountains, and a glorious time to play music outdoors in the courtyard of The Drunk Brush Wine Bar on Grover Alley in beautiful greater metropolitan downtown Quincy, California. The libations are superb, the laughter infectious, the conversations rich ~ in short, an excellent hangout.
Fine sandwich and other fare is available from The Knook, which adjoins the scene.
If you find yourself wanting to stay over in Quincy, a contender as one of the coolest small towns in the USA, consider the Quincy Courtyard Suites, which offer efficient walking distance access to many of the town’s delights.
Shelley Miller, vocals, Dave Johns, guitar and vocals, Hank Alrich, guitar and vocals – three sets outdoors in the marvelously welcoming courtyard at The Drunk Brush Wine Bar on Grover Alley in beautiful greater metropolitan downtown Quincy, California.
Come get your yahyah’s and your woohoo’s into the foot-wiggling rhythms and magic of Shelley’s singing. Watch Dave deliver another Epiphonic knockout. See Hank be amazed.
Now & Then = Shelley Miller, vocals, Dave Johns, guitar and vocals, and Hank Alrich, guitar and vocals. These three have been playing together for decades, beginning in early 1988 as three-fifths of the locally legendary acoustic swing quintet, Porch Swing, and segueing into this trio format circa 2006.
They love playing together, and they love this music, a repertoire of hundreds of songs – standards, Latin tunes, a few quasi-modern classics, and a few songs pulled from Hank’s stash of engaging originals.
For years the trio has enjoyed the support of an extensive network of fans among music aficionados living in the watershed of el Rio de Las Plumas, as well as many farther-flung fans captured while they were visiting one of our nation’s most inviting recreational areas, AKA “the Feather River Country”, in Plumas County, California.
The setting will be nice and shady in Old Towne for this three o’clock in the afternoon opening of the third annual Plumas Homegrown Americana Festival, presented at Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds in Quincy CA 95971 USA.
Bring your thing, and Now & Then will bring swing!
