“Civilized Celebration”: Rick Whitehead Trio + Lee – Friday, 12/31
December 31, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
We will be having our traditional “Civilized NYE Celebration” which means that we will offer dinner and music on the early side, and be closed by 9:30 so that we can all be home (or somewhere else!) by the time the ball drops. You can mark the change to 2022 enjoyably and sensibly!
The Rick Whitehead Trio consists of Rick Whitehead, John Previti, and Steve Larrance. Each of these three musicians has had an amazing career. Rick Whitehead was the featured guitar soloist for the USAF band’s Airmen of Note for 22 years. Bassist John Previti is best known for his 18 year stint with the amazing guitar master, Danny Gatton, and has performed with numerous artists of renown including Les Paul, Charlie Byrd, and Paul Simon. Steve Larrance recorded with Lawrence and the Arabians and the Ike and Tina Turner band.
They will be likely be joined by Lee, so that means you can expect some rock n roll influence! https://www.rickwhiteheadguitar.com
