Certain artists just seem to have an innate sense of what it takes to please an audience. Clay Walker is one of those artists. Whether on stage or in the recording studio, Walker never gives less than a hundred percent, and it’s that kind of dedicated work ethic combined with God-given talent that have made him one of the most successful country acts of the past decade.

His Billboard country singles hits include “What’s It to You,” followed with his second consecutive No. 1 hit, “Live Until I Die,” followed by 31 titles on Billboard’s singles chart, including such chart toppers as “Dreaming with my Eyes Open,” “If I Could Make Living,” “This Woman and This Man,” and “Rumor Has It.”  

He first topped the Billboard country singles chart in 1993 with “What’s It to You” and followed with his second consecutive No. 1 hit, “Live Until I Die.” Since then he’s placed 31 titles on Billboard’s singles chart including such additional chart toppers as “Dreaming with my Eyes Open,”” “If I Could Make Living,” “This Woman and This Man,” and “Rumor Has It.” (The latter two songs each spent two weeks at the summit.) He’s enjoyed his share of success at the cash registers and has consistently been one of the busiest artists on the road. Clay has scored four platinum-selling albums, signifying sales of a million units, and two gold albums — discs that sold over 5,000,000 units.

Carrera Production presents Diane Schuur’s “I Remember You:” The Music of Frank Sinatra, Stan Getz, and Other Schuur Catalog Gems.

Diane Schuur is one of those rare singers, like Sinatra and Judy Garland, both superb vocalist and alluring entertainer. Through standards from the great American songbook, her singing conjures the emotions that burn in our hearts, wild romance, and the thirst for love and happiness. Ms. Schuur embraces this music with artistic integrity and deep respect for the lyrics, giving true meaning to the elegance and swing of both Sinatra and Getz.* 

* Brent Black, Bop-N-Jazz Review

In Diane’s own words, “Stan Getz was a great friend as well as a mentor. He taught me less is more when singing into the microphone. The microphone can be your friend. You don’t have to shout out every note and he also instilled the importance of enunciating while singing the words to a song.

“I had the honor to perform with Frank Sinatra as a replacement for Liza Minnelli who was ill. Everyone was against it except Frank. He gave me a chance to be part of his group. Once I started singing, the audience responded quite positively to his choice. We had many intimate conversations about life and my blindness. He ended up painting a beautiful abstract canvas for me, which hangs in my home. He said to me I have so much beauty in my life I wish I could give you my eyes for one day to see this beautiful world we live in. Then he realized I could see it too in my own way.”

The Magpie Salute is an exciting new band that features musicians who have played together for decades throughout various projects and share a musical bond. The band brings Rich Robinson, the guitarist and co-founding member of The Black Crowes, together with two key members of Crowes fame — guitarist Marc Ford and bassist Sven Pipien — alongside drummer Joe Magistro, keyboardist Matt Slocum and lead singer John Hogg (Hookah Brown, Moke).

The band’s performance in Folsom will feature new songs from the album being be released late Summer alongside others culled from a catalog of over 200 compositions the band has played since their inception.

Following close to 80 appearances over the course of 2017, The Magpie Salute entered Dark Horse Studios in Nashville this past winter to record their debut release of original repertoire. That album will be released late Summer. The band’s performance in Folsom will feature these new songs alongside others culled from a catalog of over 200 compositions the band has played since their inception.

Rich stated, “We will continue in the long line of digging deep into my old Crowes’ catalogue, some great covers, some we’ve done before, some we have never played, songs from my solo records and some of Marc’s songs off of his new record.” Marc believes that this variety in set list “keeps everything interesting to us” and asks, “If we weren’t into it, how could the listeners be?”

The Stone Foxes

The Stone Foxes are San Francisco’s rock band. They bear the torch of their predecessors with the knowledge that rock ’n roll can move a new generation. They’ve played in front of thousands at festivals like Outside Lands and Voodoo Fest, they’ve headlined the legendary Fillmore Theater in their hometown, and have supported acts like The Black Keys, Cage the Elephant, and ZZ Top.

Not for Rehire is Keith Lowell Jensen’s latest hour of comedic storytelling. While presenting what could definitely be described as a one man show, the comedian keeps within the timing and patter of stand up, the end result fitting the bill at a comedy club as readily as at a theater. This show at Harris Center will be taped LIVE and Becky Lynn will be opening the show.

From working at a golf course for less than minimum wage to getting punched in the face by his manager at a floating restaurant to getting up to all manner of mischief with the deep fryers at KFC, Jensen has made quite a career of not having a proper career.

“With no 401k, no savings, no retirement account, these stories are the only return on my investment.” Luckily, they’re very good.

Keith Lowell Jensen has become known for his subtle, smart approach, and his meandering story telling.

He has appeared on The History Channel, Spike TV, and the Starz Network, and has five hilarious comedy albums to his credit, including Bad Comedy For Bad People, hitting the #1 spot on Amazon’s comedy charts.

Engaging, hilarious and, at the end, so emotional it might bring you to tears.

Everyone can relate.

Prediction: You’re gonna love Jensen’s style of subtle, smart storytelling.

Emmy Award-winning comedienne Vicki Lawrence is one of the most beloved television personalities of her generation. Plucked out of total obscurity as a high school senior, Vicki went on to become part of the now-legendary cast of “The Carol Burnett Show.” “I went to the Harvard School of Comedy in front of America,” says Ms. Lawrence of her Burnett Show training.

In the seventh season, and hundreds of hilarious sketches later, at the ripe, old age of 24, Vicki created her most endearing character to date, Thelma Harper, or “Mama” as she is better known to her fans. After the Burnett Show, Vicki went on to star in “Mama’s Family,” which consistently topped the ratings for its entire six-year run of original shows. “Mama” has attained almost a cult status among her legions of loyal television viewers.

“I went to the Harvard School of Comedy in front of America,” says Ms. Lawrence of her Burnett Show training.

Ms. Lawrence decided that the time is right to take Mama out of the closet, dust off her sensible shoes and hit the road with her new touring production, Vicki Lawrence and Mama: A Two-Woman Show.

Ms. Lawrence takes the stage first. “My show is not a retrospective,” she explains. “It is a mixture of stand-up comedy, music and my observations about real life.” The multi-talented entertainer is mostly known for her acting and comedic talents, but she also earned a gold record for the 1973 hit, “The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia.”
