Blame SallyThe first thing you should know about Blame Sally is that their shows at the Freight tend to sell out. The second thing you should know is that the shows sell out because the band is so talented, entertaining, and irresistibly fun! Here’s how j. poet puts it in the East Bay Express: “The four women in Blame Sally light up a club when they launch into one of their feel-good tunes. They’re all charismatic performers, but they’ve endeared themselves to their fans by becoming anti-rock stars. They’re warm and approachable, both on stage and off, treating fans like an extended family. The band members put their heart and soul into every note, and while they have an identifiable sound, their music defies easy categorization. They’re as likely to play a mellow folk ballad as a flat-out rocker, or follow a moody pop tune with some country funk.” Their popularity now extends far beyond their home base in the Bay Area. When they toured the United Kingdom, they won rave reviews. “Blame Sally are the best all female four piece band that I have ever heard,” says the website americanrootsuk.com. “They are highly skilled musicians when it comes to their instrumental licks and all four are tremendous songwriters and lead vocalists with their harmonies being just about unmatchable!”
 
The band formed in 2000 for a one-night gig, and everyone enjoyed playing together so much – and the audience reaction was so enthusiastic – that the band stayed together. Since then, they’ve released seven albums, including their latest, Live at KVIE Studios, Volume I. Pam Delgado plays percussion and guitar, Renee Harcourt plays guitar, bass, banjo, and harmonica, Jeri Jones plays guitar, bass, dobro, and mandolin, Monica Pasqual plays piano, accordion, and melodica, and they all sing – beautifully! Plus, they know how to tell a good story and make the audience feel like part of the show. Remember, though, their shows at the Freight tend to sell out, so get your tickets early!


This, the Silent War is a new project from Garrison Starr and Adrianne Gonzalez. They’ve released two singles – “Setting Sun,” featured on the CW television network’s Reign, and “We Are Broken,” featured on the ABC Family Channel’s The Fosters – and are working together on an EP. Garrison, from Hernando, Mississippi, has released seven solo albums and is also a founding member of Among the Oak & Ash. Adrianne grew up in Miami, earned a degree in music production and engineering from Boston’s Berklee College of Music, and moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career that has so far produced five albums and landed her music on such television shows as Grey’s Anatomy, One Tree Hill, and Gossip Girl.
