Dire Straits Members Form “The Straits” and Black Oak Casino Resort is the Only California stop on their U.S Tour

Tuolumne, CA...Tickets are now on sale for The Straits performance at Black Oak Casino Resort on March 26th. The Straits is comprised of Dire Straits' Alan Clark and Chris White with five hand-picked, world class musicians - Terence Reis, Steve Ferrone from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Mickey Féat, Adam Phillips and Jamie Squire. As of now, Black Oak Casino Resort is the only stop in California on their U.S. tour. Dire Straits’ legacy is alive and well thanks to the musicians who made history with the band. Straits' keyboard player and former Dire Straits member and producer Alan Clark began the process two years ago in Rome. “Dire Straits' sax player Chris and I were having breakfast beside a pool one beautiful, sunny morning when I declared we were going to form The Straits,” says Clark....



Having been a part of the hugely successful, multi-million selling Dire Straits, Clark was acutely aware of the huge responsibility they were undertaking, and the need to get it right. “So, next we needed a band. There was only ever going to be one drummer: Steve Ferrone, probably the best rock drummer in the world, and a good mate. We'd played together for some years when we were in Eric Clapton's band and he is godfather to my son and daughter. As for a front man, I'd always thought it would be impossible to replace the huge talent that is Mark Knopfler until I discovered the brilliant Terence Reis. Next we needed a bass player. We'd briefly considered using a lineup of ex Dire Straits players - and believe me, there were plenty offers - but we decided to go our own way', to hand-pick the absolute best, so Mickey Feat was recruited on bass,” adds Clark. “As for the additional keyboard player role, I'd watch Jamie Squire grow up - his family were neighbors of mine in a village in Northumberland - and develop into the amazing multi-instrumental singer/songwriter he is today. Suddenly we had a band, and what a band!"

The show will begin at 8pm on Wednesday, March 26th at Black Oak Casino Resort in the Willow Creek Lounge. Tickets are $20 and go on sale February 7th and are available at Black Oak Casino Resort’s gift shop The Gift Basket or can be ordered by phone at (209) 928-9300 x6508.
