Minor Birds
Jun 8 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
minor birds is C Clarke on stage playing keyboardsMinor Birds are a Symphonic rock, doom folk group out of Tuolumne, CA.
As a classically trained pianist and self-taught multi-instrumentalist, C.Wilde spins poetic tales, with a voice oscillating between a silky coo and a guttural howl. At heart, her musical gems take form as emotionally receptive storytelling. Intrinsically poetic, Wilde’s music is about the journey, rather than a set destination.

Tria Prima @ The Spirit Room
Jun 9 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

franco campanelloEnjoy 2 hours of Jazz with Franco Campanello’s newest concoction of musical goodness, “Tria Prima”.  That’s right, if you attended the Spirit Room open mic nights on Wednesday’s, (Pre-Pandemic) you most likely would have seen Franco sitting in with someone or going solo with his guitar.  BTW, this guy can play keyboard, guitar, sing and sling a mean cocktail.  Yup, he’s sometimes behind the bar, but these two Friday afternoon’s, he will once again be gracing our stage.  This trio has no electronic press kit or online presence, so we figured we should see what the heck “Tria Prima” means.  I thought it meant “Prime Trio”, which would make sense to me, but here’s what I found on the interwebs:

Tria Prima: According to the Alchemy of Paracelsus, the three substances of SALT, SULPHUR, and MERCURY that make up all things. The Tria Prima are chemical substances that have similar properties to the three celestials, or archetypal, elements that flow out from the Mind of God into creation. These forces, or hypostatical principles, correspond to divine trinities and triads found in religions and mysticism; for example, in Christianity the triad is the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.

The celestial elements comprise the four elements of the lower world, so that the Tria Prima is the basis for both macrocosm and microcosm. Paracelsus said:

You should know that all seven metals originate from three materials, namely from mercury, Sulphur, and salt, though with different colors. Therefore, Hermes has said not incorrectly that all seven metals are born and composed from three substances, similarly also the tinctures and philosopher’s stone. . . But that it be rightly understood what the three different substances are that he calls spirit, soul and body, you should know that they mean no other than the three principia, that is, mercury, Sulphur, and salt, out of which all seven metals originate. Mercury is the spirit, Sulphur is the soul, salt the body.

The most important of the celestial elements is salt, which is born in the heating of fire and seawater. Its powers as a preservative, and thus a powerful force for the attainment of immortality, make it important to alchemical processes. Salt is passive/feminine and represents substance, Earth, and the body.

Sulphur is active/masculine, a transforming essence. It is associated with the SUN and the energy of nature.

Mercury is neutral and volatile, the agent of transformation. Its contradictory properties enable it to participate in all states of matter. It is liquid at room temperature and can dissolve GOLD. When heated it forms both white powder (highly poisonous) and red crystals (therapeutic).

Paracelsus held that disease arises from imbalances among the Tria Prima. For example, an excess of Sulphur would cause fever and plague, while an imbalance would cause gout.

Tony Buck & The Cadillac Angels @ The Spirit Room
Jun 15 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Cadillac Angels

 

 

 

Growing up with no computer, cell phone, Ipod or even a television, is just not that common anymore, anywhere, but for Tony Balbinot, bandleader and singer/songwriter, guitarist for the Cadillac Angels, that’s exactly how it was. Born in a small, rural farm town in Illinois, in a house without even a television, only a radio and an old record player, Tony’s connection to the big music world was limited to WLS Radio out of Chicago and used 45 rpm records from a jukebox in a diner where his single mother was a waitress.  Musical influences varied widely from Johnny Horton to Jimmy Reed, and when his small family packed up and moved to California the spectrum widened and bloomed.  With Tony’s growing interest in electric guitar, Link Wray, Dick Dale, BB King, and John Fogerty began to heat up his second hand stereo and his fingers.

Midwestern roots combined with a western migration spawned the guitar driven  musical and songwriting style that makes the Cadillac Angels music so special. Now, with over a million miles of touring, and over ten full length original CDs, the band has toured most of the USA and over seven countries in Great Britain and Western Europe. Their first recordings won them “Best Roots Demo” at Austin’s prestigious South by Southwest Music Conference, and their songs have been featured in major full length films as well as commercials.

The Gretsch Guitar Company recognized Tony’s talents and awarded him an artists endorsement. He was invited to perform at Gretsch’s 125th year anniversary celebration, where he shared the stage with legends, Dick Dale, Billy Gibbons, and Jimmie Vaughn.  Tony’s picture now hangs in the Gretsch Hall of Fame in Scottsdale, AZ right between Chet Atkins and Brian Jones. Not bad for a country boy from Illinois!

The Cadillac Angels have never caved to musical fads or commercial pressure. They have elected to remain a trio, feeling that the honest sound of one electric guitar, bass and basic drums best suits the integrity of their style…a style born out of the American heartland, traveling the world, yet still their music rings true Rock and Roll…American music.
