COCHISE COUNTY ALL-STARS

Community Performing Arts Center Foundation
Green Valley, AZ

Tickets: $15/$20 in advance – all tickets $20 at door

The Cochise County All-Stars started their musical journey nearly 10 years ago as strictly a honky-tonk band playing the jukebox country music popular when Route 66 was Main Street USA. A few natural additions and subtractions in personnel have led to an evolved group of seasoned veterans who perform songs they love across a variety of genres. A CCAS show could easily feature a Hank Williams tune back to back with an obscure Latin rock instrumental followed by a jazz standard.

The Cochise County All-Stars (so named for the home county of three of the four original members) are:

Gene Holmes (guitar; vocals) Someone who has seen it all in over five decades in the music business, Gene is a native of Columbus, Mississippi who spent years on the road as a guitarist in Little Richard’s back-up band and with former Flying Burrito Brother Chris Ethridge.

Louie Levinson (guitar; pedal steel guitar; vocals) A native of Tombstone, Arizona, the Corral Bar jukebox was Louie’s formative musical influence. He cut his professional teeth playing guitar with Latin jazz group Mestizo and pedal steel guitar with alt-country bands The Peterbilts and Red Star Belgrade while living in Chicago in the 80s and 90s.

Amy Langley (vocals; hand percussion) Originally from New York, Amy ventured west to Tucson in the late 1970s to study music at the University of Arizona. Continuing westward she participated in the 80’s music scene of Los Angeles, forming two original bands. Onward to Germany where she was active in the jazz community there.

Craig Faltin (acoustic and electric bass) Tucson native Craig Faltin has performed over the years with a number of legendary musicians both on the road and as a first call local bassist. Notable names that Craig has performed with include Chuck Berry, Laurindo Almeida, Diane Schuur and Dickie Thompson to cite just a few. Craig’s serious and studious musicianship keeps the group in line!

Howard Wooten (guitar, banjo, mandolin) Always included in any discussion of Tucson’s top jazz guitar players, Howard is at home with any stringed instrument in his hands. Howard has been a fixture on the live Tucson music scene since the late 1960s as well as composing, arranging and performing for TV commercials and traveling Broadway shows.

This performance will include renditions of “16 Tons,” “I’m An Old Cowhand,” “Route 66” and “Black Coffee” among others.

HOT CLUB OF TUCSON ~ Gypsy Jazz

Community Performing Arts Center Foundation
Green Valley, AZ

Tickets: $15/$20 in advance – all tickets $20 at door

The Hot Club of Tucson, formed in 2004, is comprised of guitarist Matt Mitchell, violinist Nick Coventry and bassist Evan Dain. They released their first CD on June 1, 2014, a compilation of several live concerts held at the Randolph Park El Con Jazz Series. With weekly engagements at Hotel Congress and other venues in southern Arizona along with an upcoming performance at the national Gypsy Jazz Festival, this band has quickly become the leading force of this genre in the region.

Due to their traditional American jazz influences, the members of Hot Club of Tucson like to break out of the usually defined roles and interact with each other more than is common in the French jazz style. The Hot Club of Tucson plays Django Reinhardt inspired acoustic gypsy jazz, French jazz, folk, jazz manouche and music from American Tin Pan Alley. This performance will include original arrangements of Lady is a Tramp (L Hart, R Rodgers), Three Little Words (B Kalmar, H Ruby), My Melancholy Baby (E Burnett, G Norton), Honeysuckle Rose (F Waller), Manoir de Mes Reves (D Reinhardt) and much more!

EVAN DAIN: A San Francisco native, multi-instrumentalist Evan Dain started at age 6 on the guitar, and picked up the bass, banjo, and mandolin in high school. Evan studied music at Laney College in Oakland, California, and afterwards served in the U.S. Navy. Picking up the trombone and Tuba along the way, Evan launched a musical career that has encompassed traditional, modern, and latin jazz, rock n’ roll, bluegrass, pop, and country-western. Evan is currently back home in Tucson after spending nearly two years on cruise ships.

MATT MITCHELL: Born in Phoenix, guitarist Matt Mitchell started on classical piano at the age of 7, and picked up rock guitar, and later jazz and classical guitar, in high school. Matt received a Bachelors of Arts in Classical Guitar Performance in 1995 from the University of Arizona. He is lucky enough to be one of the few who get to make a living doing what he loves. Matt has played 200+ gigs a year for 20 years.

NICK COVENTRY: Nick Coventry started playing violin at an early age and after hearing a Stephane Grappelli tape at the age of 12 he began in earnest to learn the swinging style of Gypsy jazz violin. At 18 he studied classically at the University of California Santa Barbara, at 20 he started his first gypsy swing band, “Les Gendarmes du Swing” and began writing and performing around his hometown of Goleta, California. In 2005 he travelled to the famous Djangofest at Samois-sur-Seine, France to meet and play with the best European musicians of Gypsy jazz. This resulted in a series of tours around Spain, England, Scotland and Denmark with the Hot Club of Galicia. At home, Nick has performed at the Djangofest in San Francisco with Gonzalo Bergara, as a guest with the John Jorgenson Quintet, Stephane Wrembel trio in New York, and with Alfonso Ponticelli and Swing Gitan at Chicago’s Green Mill. He currently lives in Tucson, Arizona.
