Christy Fisher

 

Singer/songwriter/ukulele player/seamstress for the band
Christy started her “musical career” at the age of 15, working cleanup for
iconic fashion designer Michael Braun (Sonny and Cher, Prince) and sewing
for legendary musicians and bands such as Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and
Frank Zappa. “I was a rebel poet, a hippie, and a kid who stole her brother’s
guitar, learned 3 chords and drove my piano teacher crazy banging out
Beatles instead of Beethoven. Here I was hanging around with musicians
after school and getting into clubs underage because it was part of my
“sewing job”…. it was bound to happen. My boyfriend’s band needed a
backup singer, their manager heard me.. and the next thing I knew I was in
a recording studio and signing a contract with Decca…. It was then I found
out about the “industry part of the music business” as they tried to turn me
into a slick little package … long story short: I wouldn’t wear the dress. They
voided the contract…and this rebel was once again free.”
A “lyricist with a soundtrack”, Christy’s musical style is influenced by various
genres: old school R&B, pop bands from the 60s and 70s, and folk.
Christy went on to playing in various rock bands in Florida and Colorado all
while building her own jewelry and clothing design business. She moved to
Jerome in 1990. Always a strong supporter of the arts, she concentrated on
her wearable arts and put her music on the back burner, while continuing
to write songs for “sanity’s sake”.
Then…around Christmas 2014…she was given a ukulele…and
….everything….changed.
She is now a part of The Jerome Ukulele Orchestra, lead singer for the band
Mountain Stranded Time……..and still creates jewelry and clothing for
everyday rockstars.

(: The Invincible Grins :)
May 26 @ 9:00 pm – May 27 @ 12:00 am

the invincible grinsBorn in the Verde Valley of Arizona, The Invincible Grins fuse eclecticism with unbridled enthusiasm, creating a unique and danceable style of sweaty rock and roll. Marrying strong and original songwriting with undeniable groove, the Grins draw inspiration from such artists as Tom Waits, Woody Guthrie, Andrew Bird, Talking Heads, Morphine, and Goran Bregovic, and have also been accused of sounding like “Gogol Bordello meets Fleetwood Mac.” Their music has been described as “funked-up folk”, “Gypsybilly”, and simply, “…like fun!” No matter what moniker is applied, one thing is for sure: The Invincible Grins are upbeat music for a beat up world. They remind you to have a drink and dance. Take it easy. Brace yourself. Everything’s gonna be alright!

Garrick Rawlings

I’m forever chasing striking blends of folk, rock, country, cowboy, jazz, punk, blues in songs I write and perform. Born in Wichita Kansas, mostly raised in Sturgis, Michigan, then Kalamazoo, on to Chicago, too long in Southern CA, & for the time being basing out of Northern Arizona. Began as a hard rock electric guitar player emulating the high energy rock out of Detroit, fell in love with the blues in Chicago. Moved out west to L.A. to play some rock and roll and somehow became Ramblin’ Jack Elliott’s road manager, opener and sidekick for a while(he duets w/ me on Dollars To Dust). While in L.A. I had the good fortune of getting to know and open shows for world-class songwriters/guitarists Dave Alvin and Rick Shea, two of the best California has to offer.

A Garrick Rawlings show is best described as Neil Young & Johnny Cash meet the MC5 riding horseback through the desert with Ramblin’ Jack and Townes, settlin’ in around the campfire with Woody Guthrie, Led Zeppelin, Tom Russell, John Prine, Guy Clark and a mariachi band.
