Kevin Quinn Brings His Brand Of Musical Entertainment On The Patio at Fuso's, Thursday Oct 18th

Don't Miss Out on the Entertainment...

Thursday, October 18th, 2012
6:00 - 9:00 pm

Kevin plays keyboards today because his mom wouldn’t let him quit classical piano lessons forty years ago. When he finally got his wish after 8 years, he found he had gotten good enough to play the music he really loved. He had worn the grooves off his first album, the British import of Introducing the Beatles. He spent his middle teen years trying to learn to play piano like Elton John. Now after spending 25 years out of the music scene to raise four kids and grasp at rungs on the corporate ladder, Kevin is back. His current influences are–to paraphrase James Taylor–Ray Charles, Ray Charles, and Ray Charles.

Kevin Quinn from the Delta King in Sacramento, formally the local Kab's Club, member of several bands including The Uncorked Blues Band, The Delta Rockets, and more will be playing piano and singing favorites at Fuso Italian Restaurant.

Kevin has also just published a book that is now available on Kindle and soon out in paperback titled,  It's Your Wine, Drink It. In this interesting book, he takes understanding, appreciating and knowing wine to a far simpler level: enjoyment, people and experience.

Come join the fun!

Laura Dorais & the Jazz Connection This Sunday, Oct 7th On The Patio at Fuso's

California native Laura Dorais, who has lived in Benicia for the last 14 years, began singing professionally at 44. “I was inspired by the jazz scene in Portland, Ore. I could walk to three or four clubs in a night and hear wonderful players performing beautiful standards of the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s. In fact, Portland, Ore., is where I first got my jazzy feet wet," she said. See more

Come on out to the patio at Fuso for a night of food and music. 5:30-8:30pm The Jazz Connection will be playing.

Saturday Music Highlight Is Yumi & the Other Guys On The Patio at Fuso's, Saturday, October 6th

Returning to Fuso's Patio is YUMI & the Other Guys. They rocked the place last month and we're happy to have them back this Saturday, October 6th from 6:30pm to 9:30pm.

Here's a bit about this group:

The History of YUMI & the Other Guys
You've just been to a see a live music event and gone away thinking, "They were okay, but I'm totally sick of hearing (insert song-name here). Imagine how much more that feeling affects really creative people who are stuck in bands playing the same old cover tunes, week after week. Okay, take it from me, it's really boring.

Well, that was us. Robert, Tim & Ron, having played Mustang Sally, Proud Mary, Folsom Prison Blues... until our ears bled. We all liked very diverse types of music: Jazz, Country, Pop (70's to today), light rock, but the bands that were available to play with all seemed to have the same setlists.

The solution?
"Let's put together a high quality band and play the 'other' songs that everyone loves but that have been really unavailable to audiences; kind of a 'B-side' project." Of course there's a reason why other bands don't play these songs. Many of them have additional instrument parts and really interesting harmonies that would be difficult to put together quickly and would require more time and commitment from the musicians. What the heck! We're up for it.

So we conducted a poll, collected a list of songs that we, our friends and family would really like to hear and got to work. Auditions, practice, more auditions, more practice. Given the needs of the music, we determined that we wanted two female vocalists that could perform both leads and harmonies (enter Brittany and Allison). This supplemented by Robert and Ron's vocals gave us the ability to do four-part harmonies. Ya' just don't find that in many cover bands. Combine great vocals with Tim's high energy bass and attention to detail, Robert's varied selection of guitars and effects and Ron's ability to program his keyboard with multiple instrument splits, arpeggiators and dynamically layered sounds, and we might just make this thing work.

Come see us and experience the YuMi difference!

Local Downtown Vacaville Event: Vacaville Kid Fest Is Sat, Oct 6th

Vacaville Kid Fest was started in 1999, when an idea was born to create a "Children's Festival", a place where families could come and have a day of activities with their children at very little or no cost, and also have the opportunity to learn about many of the services and resources that were available to children and families. We adopted the theme "For the Child in all of us".

A group of City of Vacaville representatives, ranging from business owners and managers, nonprofit groups and media people were approached with the idea and met it with enthusiasm. And thus, Kid Fest was born.

The first Kid Fest Core Committee consisted of Shauna Manina, Meaghan O'Neill from Vacaville Police Dept., Linnea Dischinger from Vacaville Fire Dept., Todd Grames and Suzanne Green from Community Services Dept., and Reggie Hubbard from Housing & Redevelopment Dept. Other business people from The Reporter, Downtown Vacaville Business Improvement District, and others all committed to the vision of a day of low cost or no cost activities, free resources, and fun.

Our first event in 1999 had 1 stage and 40 booths, with everything from food, crafters and merchandise vendors, a wide range of social service and community nonprofit groups, free children's games and entertainment, bounce houses, and a very strong focus on child safety and health. From the beginning, a large component of the event has been the presence of Vacaville Fire and Police Depts., with their equipment displays, children's fire muster, and safety information.

By 2001, there were 2 stages of entertainment and over 120 booths participating in the event. The committee members have changed over the years, but the event has continued, and become part of the fabric of what makes Vacaville a family oriented community. The focus remains on child and family safety and health.

See you there!
