02/08/2020 - Comedian Liz Grant to headline at Wine and Whimsy on February 8th, 2020
Angels Camp, CA...Liz Grant, a Bay Area comedian will let loose at Wine and Whimsy on February 8th at The Metropolitan in San Andreas. The event, presented by Soroptimist International of Calaveras County, promises to provide an evening of laughter, friendship and wine while benefitting the many local Soroptimist programs.
Soroptimists present education and training awards for women, career support for girls and promote health by offering free lipid panel screenings to Calaveras County women for the entire month of February in partnership with Dignity Health Mark Twain Medical Centers.


This year’s Wine and Whimsy will bring the hilarity to the historic Metropolitan. Originally a hotel, The Met was built at the base of Main Street in San Andreas in 1859. A fire consumed the building in 1926, and in its place a movie theater was constructed in the early 1950s. It was later renovated as a dining hall and performance venue.

Rumor has it that Mark Twain found his inspiration for The Jumping Frog right in the Metropolitan’s luxurious bar-room.

Wine and Whimsy tickets are now available on-line at http://sicalaverascounty.org or by calling 209-753-9700. Admission, including a no-host bar and light appetizers, is $45. Doors open at 6:30 and the show begins at 7:30.
01/18/2020 - Jill & The Giants Will Rock Your World on January 18th
Arnold, CA...Sequoia Woods Country Club is located on the western slope of the Sierra Nevada mountains, roughly between Lake Tahoe and Yosemite National Park, at an elevation of 4000 feet. The club house is open to the public, with a bar and lounge, dining room and seasonal deli. The beautiful setting can be enjoyed from indoors or outside on the deck, with a view down the main tree-lined golf fairway.



The bar serves food several evenings each week and the restaurant is open for dinner every weekend. The dinner menu has a perfect variety of traditional favorites, with creative and contemporary preparations, and our guests marvel at the quality of cuisine to be found here, in this little mountain hamlet. There is dancing in the lounge every Saturday night, with a DJ or frequent live bands. The deli opens its windows to the deck for an extended summer season, with tasty sandwiches, salads and hot specials. Special group events find our venue especially accommodating and fun. This is a truly lovely place to enjoy good food, good friends and good scenery.

02/08/2020 - Get Ready for the 47th Annual Bjornloppet XC Ski Race

Karl is a four-time National Cross Country Champion, and Kelsey Phinney is a World Cup Cross Country Racer with impressive finishes in both the US and Europe.
The Bjornloppet caught their attention as California’s longest-running cross country race and conveniently fit into their travel plans.

This event is the longest-running ski race in California and is a special opportunity to visit Bear Valley and test your skills on the groomed scenic trails.

01/12/2020 - Cantamos Opens Ovations Winter Concert Season
Angels Camp, CA...The first concert of the Ovations winter concert season at the Bret Hart Performing Arts Center will be the band Cantamos, a popular local band that refuses to be put in a genre box with their mix of big band, rock, rhythm and blues, folk, pop, and even classical music. “We’re so hard to describe,” said Macfarlane. “We have an eclectic mix of our favorite songs. In the past we’ve moved from arias to Latin favorites, to contemporary pop songs.” Indeed, Michela leads the band seamlessly across the world music landscape with a cheerful whirlwind of songs like the Brazilian bosso nova hit “Corcovado” and the German/Yiddish big band romp “Bei Mire Bist Du Shön,” as well as rollicking Aretha Franklin covers and the novelty song “Mambo Italiano.”



Cantamos isn’t restricted to English. Macfarlane is a musical polyglot; their concerts can feel like a world tour. “My favorite thing is to sing in a bunch of different languages. Italian, French Spanish, Portuguese,” she said. Chestnut kitschy pop songs like “These Boots are Made for Walking” shine when Macfarlane sings them in French. And Cantamos covers a variety of unusual material, like their rendition of Pink Martini’s “Je ne Veux Pas Travailler (Sympatique).”

The eight piece group is blessed with a line up of talent to back Macfarlane: Fred Treece on guitars and vocals, Tonja Peterson on vocals and percussion, Ray Price on drums and percussion, and Ron Schaner on bass and vocals mix it up with the horn section—Ras Beeken Dan on sax, flute, and clarinet, Gunther Hsue on trumpet (he also plays keyboard), and Matt Albright on Trombone.

“It can be tricky to play with a horn section,” Macfarlane admitted. “Especially with my vocal range, which is pretty high. A lot of times the vocals can get lost. That’s been one of the challenges.” But she said that the horns, led by Beeken, make it work. “It’s so awesome to have that full section that a horn section brings. There are so many possibilities.”

Macfarlane said that each musician contributes to the band’s material by bringing in their favorite pieces. “Each of our songs has a special meaning to at least someone in our group, for example Ray brought in Corcovado, Ron brought in Sara Bareilles’ “Love Song” and Gunther brought in Sting’s “La Belle Dame Sans Regrets.” Whatever memory or desire they have connected to it we then make it our own collective effort and polish it into a rendition that speaks to all of us.”

“We are presenting our usual eclectic repertoire mix,” Macfarlane said, “but we’re breathing new life into it. Gunther Hsue and I will do a Mozart aria from Le Nozze di Figaro, new to our show. Tonja, Fred, and I will also be doing a couple new songs with gorgeous harmonies, pieces that you just don’t hear every day.”

“I think one of the most important things we are doing for this show is coming up with fresh arrangements for our songs that harness the talent of all of us on stage in such a way that features as many moments of brilliance as possible.”

Sunday, January 12
3 to 5 p.m.
