A dynamic, bluesy, swamp-tinged rock band, Salt Miners bring the party to every live performance. For folks who like good music and wine this is the perfect band.
West of the Blues features a strong front line of entertainers including Kim Bernhardt on vocals and Eric Brown on vocals and harp. They will engage and entertain the audience with powerful vocals and harmonica licks.
The band’s “back line” features Fred Dobelbower on bass guitar. During his career, Fred has exclusively played bass guitar in the house bands at the Biltmore Hotel and Wigwam Resorts for over three decades.
Also, providing unique sounds to the stage are musicians: Rudy Detgen, saxophonist; Cameron Craig and Jay Lannon, guitar; and Brian Jones, acoustic drums. West of the Blues brings together years of solid entertainment value.
Singer John Gamber is well-known locally, having performed throughout the Valley for many years. The crooner began his career the evening his wife once “dragged” him into a dinner theater audition, and he got hooked. He was recruited to perform at the Skye Restaurant in Peoria where he opened for The Drifters, The Tokens, Jay and the Americans and others. Mr. Gamber states that his taste in music is eclectic and that he sings across many genres, but that his personal favorites are “any songs by Roy Orbison.” He is donating his time for this concert, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Sun City West Community Fund.
Bringing the party to Sun City West is the RadioFace Band. One of the best cover bands in the Valley! RadioFace is a Phoenix cover band that plays songs from multiple genres, from rock at pop to country, spanning many decades. The band aims to bring the party and get people dancing!
