Riverbank News - - LIVING -

If you’re look­ing to en­joy some good music this sum­mer, look no fur­ther than the West Side The­atre in New­man, which will stage a cou­ple of spe­cial per­for­mances.

On Fri­day, Aug. 3, the Rob Hill Band is on the sched­ule, doors open at 7 p.m. and show time is 8 p.m., with $10 gen­eral ad­mis­sion.

The Rob Hill Band, formed in 2012 and from Modesto, fea­tures pi­anobased orig­i­nal music that blends the tra­di­tional el­e­ments of soul, pop, jazz, and blues. Through­out the Cen­tral Val­ley they are known for their passionate live per­for­mances. In 2016, they won a Modesto Area Music Award (MAMA) in the Jazz and Blues cat­e­gory. The band cre­ates its unique sound by weav­ing to­gether the in­cen­di­ary gui­tar stylings of vet­eran mu­si­cian and New­man na­tive Mike Homen with the clas­si­cally trained and back-up vo­cals of Charles Ryan, and the sig­na­ture per­cus­sion of Ray Vazira on drums.

On Satur­day, Aug. 4 en­joy a Cash Trib­ute fea­tur­ing James Gar­ner. Cost is $25 gen­eral ad­mis­sion and $28 for the re­served sec­tion. Stu­dents ad­mit­ted half­price. Doors open at 7 p.m.; show time is 8 p.m.

James Gar­ner’s Trib­ute to Johnny Cash cel­e­brates the life and music of the Man in Black with strong con­vic­tion and stun­ning ac­cu­racy. Gar­ner and his band faith­fully recre­ate Cash’s big­gest hits, such as Fol­som Prison Blues, I Walk the Line and Ring of Fire, and in­cor­po­rate his­tor­i­cal ac­counts and per­sonal anec­dotes about Amer­ica’s most beloved singing sto­ry­teller in this not-to-be-missed mu­si­cal event. The show is a fun, classy and toe-tapping trip down mem­ory lane hon­or­ing Johnny Cash’s life and music, and the boom­chicka-boom sound of his sig­na­ture back­ing band, the Ten­nessee Three.
