11/4 Big Trouble featuring Gary Blodgett
Multi string instrumentalist Gary Blodgett was nominated for the Northwest Western Swing society Hall of Fame in 2017. Big Trouble is one of the premier country variety bands in the Sacramento area. They provide country, rock, blues, for everyone's entertainment. Gary grew up in a musical family and started playing the mandolin at the age of 6. He performed in his first gig at the age of 8 at the Adirondack Bluegrass League with The Blodgett Family-- a family band which consisted of his father, Gary Sr. who played the banjo, his mother, Nancy, who played the bass,and Gary's two sisters who initially sang leads (along with Gary) and played tambourines. As the years passed, Gary began playing guitar and his sisters both took up the mandolin. At the age of 14, Gary began playing with Smokey Greene and the Boys. When he turned 18, Gary struck out on his own. Since then he has played all over the United States, but may be best known for the time he spent playing in Key West. Currently, he resides in Central California, though he still travels all over the US playing anything with strings:)

11/18 Miles Schon
Miles Schon is a talented musician and songwriter who hails from a rich background in rock-n-roll. He is very modest about his background, playing down the fact that his father is one of the great American guitarists (Neal Schon, one of the founding members of the legendary rock band Journey), still he is rooted and grounded in the music his father turned him on to. Citing Jeff Beck as his all time favorite, he grew up listening to Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Santana and Eric Clapton. He describes his sound as “progressive hard rock with blues and pop/R&b mixed into one…” and when questioned about his comparisons to his father, he replies, “I’ve heard [the comparisons] my whole life. I just pay attention to what I sound like and what I try to do.”…” I’m working on my own style”. Miles played sports most of his life, but a knee injury sidelined him during his stint as a football player at Novato High School in California. Though he had started learning to play when he was 13, after the knee injury, he really started to get into guitar. He is self taught and accomplished in his own right, teaching music to local middle school kids while writing and recording songs. He performs to packed houses around the Bay Area several times a week. Given that his father was already a famous guitar player, he often thought he should do something else, “I still have thoughts about that,” he has said. “At the same time, you have to do what makes you happy. And that makes me happy.”
