Smokestaxx to Play a REALLY BIG SHOW at Tio's SAT. 7/8!
Author: JonFromSmokeStaxx :: Posted: Sun Jun 25, 2006 12:26 pm GMT
Hi all--

Be a part of the fun on Saturday, July 8 as Smokestaxx plays the night at Tio Leo's Lounge. We'll fill the place with all the R+B Blues and Funk you can handle and YOU fill the dance floor. That's the deal!

AND... we'll be recording the evening's festivities LIVE for an upcoming disk!

It WILL NOT be the same without you!

So, take chance and a BREAK from the weekly Saturday dance routine and come out and have a ball with us for the night! We'd love to see your smiling faces and your graceful steps!

Will YOU be there???

Thanks for your support!

CASH KINGS at Tio Leo's - (expired event)
Author: hihat :: Posted: Thu Jun 22, 2006 9:15 am GMT
The CASH KINGS make their nightclub debut at Tio Leo's on Napa-- Saturday, June 24 at 9:00 p.m.

As you might gather from the name, this is a Johnny Cash tribute band, and Cash's trademark "boom-chicka-boom" rhythm is prominently featured.

The band performed last night on the O'Brien Stage at the San Diego County Fair. A Fair official told leader Johnny D'Artenay that the Cash Kings drew the largest crowd the O'Brien Stage has ever had!

Come by Tio Leo's on June 24 and "GET RHYTHM!"

The Cash Kings are:

JOHNNY G. D'ARTENAY - guitar, vocals, leader (Hot Rod Lincoln, Big Rig Deluxe, Jump Jones, Blue Largo)

JON HARFORD - guitar, harmony vocals (Smokestaxx, Jump Jones, Big Rig Deluxe)

JOEY JAZDZEWSKI - bass (James Harman, the Paladins, Billy Watson)

HAL "JUNIOR" SMITH - drums (Hal's Angels, Carl Sonny Leyland Trio, Voo Rendezvous, Big Rig Deluxe).
DJ Smorgasbord at the Firehouse! (expired event)

Get ready to feast on an eclectic musical buffet at the La Jolla YMCA Firehouse as we bring you not 1 but 2 special guest DJs this evening: Carl Flores and Giselle Anguizola. Also, at 10:30p, Giselle will perform the "Hot Pockets" Routine that she choreographed and will be teaching during her upcoming Solo Jazz Workshop on Sun. July 2nd at Pattie Wells.

Also, on a celebratory note, my good friend and long-time swing dancer, Isgard Hueck, just got married last Sunday. I convinced her and her brand new spouse to come out tonight for a post-wedding "Money Dance Jam" in which we all take turns dancing with the bride and groom and wish them prosperity in the future by sticking paper money into their clothes. I'll have extra small bills if you need the change, but I'm sure they wouldn't mind receiving a $20 bill or two. The Money Dance will take place around 10p.

Blues Casters are playing Thursday night, Blue Largo is playing Friday night, Cash Kings (A Johnny Cash tribute band) is playing Saturday night.

All bands start at 9. Cover is $5 for Thursday and Friday night, and $7 for Saturday night.

Does anyone know anything about the Cash Kings? I'm definitely going to Blue Largo Friday night, but wondering if it's worth it to go Sat night too.
