Leon Russell, Leon Russell returns to Buck Owens’ Crystal Palace on Tuesday. Busy as ever with a statement critically acclaimed novel called “The Union” – a CD he recorded with fellow pianist, Elton John – is a rare opportunity to Bakersfield to attend one of the best authors -American composers of his generation. You may recognize some of his classics: “Superstar,” made popular by the Carpenters, “This Masquerade”, the song that helped make famous guitarist George Benson, Donny Hathaway and coverage of Russell “A Song For You”, a song that always makes me tear up. Always sporting his rocking locks and frosted white cowboy hat, he has recorded with everyone from BB King to the Rolling Stones wrote the horn arrangements and performing on “Let It Bleed . Now that you’ve been to school, you have only yourself to blame if you miss it. The show starts at 7:00 p.m.; tickets are $ 18 to $ 24 and can be purchased through or by calling 328-7560. Buck Owens Crystal Palace is located at 2800 Buck Owens Blvd.

Since the introduction of the camera, everyone seems to be a “professional photographer” these days. In most cases, the title does not match the product. There is nothing worse than seeing a blur, faded photograph taken on a unit cost of trying to pass for “art”. Not even talking about going into the photoshop disaster, or be accused of something you can do better on a disposable know Fun. Surfing the Web, I am reminded of a local club of photographers who can provide some much needed mentoring.

The Clique is a group of camera’s shutter-wielding image sensation who meets regularly to network and, of course, take lots of pictures.

Judging by galleries available to her Facebook page, they seem to have much fun, and most importantly, offer valuable advice and criticism when needed. You can visit their website at theshutterclique. Com for more info on dates for future meetings.

Each week, I introduced some interesting local talent at open-mic night Bakotopia unplug at Fishlips. Singing solo acoustic guitar / songwriters, singers, a cappella, and some pretty cool poets speak, you never know who will be next on the registration form.

A standout was 21 years, Vanessa Andrea, who has made few appearances since our inception in November. Stage his own compositions; she also raised some eyebrows in astonishment cover by Paramore (The only exception “) and Michael Jackson (” Billie Jean “).

Talk with him during breaks, there is apparently quite a story behind her journey through the Central Valley, and she is eager to share in a future article. Another highlight was Theresa Muller keyboardist and guitarist Kenny Reeves, who always appear with a robust set of hardware and getting an enthusiastic response from the public.

These guys are Hermosa Cali reggae in a long line of bands like Sublime-ish that populate the coastline. But what distinguishes the remains is their soul, funk-flavored show live. If you do not believe me, check out the mini-documentary video on their official website Their new CD, “Sacred to sell,” is out and should keep you warm until the return of summer. Opening of the exhibition is from Long Beach compadre Josh Fischel, a talented singer songwriter and someone I regularly laud. Highly recommended.
