Community: Bruce Springsteen tribute band playing Farnsworth Park Sat. Sept. 10 at 7pm.
Dear Robert Klomburg,
THE RISING – BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN TRIBUTE Bruce Springsteen tribute band, The Rising is performing a FREE concert at Farnsworth Park Saturday September 10 at 7:00 pm. Farnsworth Park located at the top of Lake Avenue at 568 E. Mount Curve Ave. As the lights go down, and seven silhouettes take the stage to calls of “Bruuuuce”; when the stage ignites in light and sound and you are swept up in one of the undeniable hit songs from one of rock’s greatest artist; you will witness the embodiment of Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, and the “spiritual healing", that can only be supplied by a great rock n roll band, and that band is THE RISING. THE RISING is a brotherhood of friends, some with ties that date back nearly two decades. Much like Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, they take the stage more like a gang, than a band. They collectively roll up their sleeves and go to work, night, after night. They were all cut from the worn denim of blue collar towns, and paid musical dues playing dive bars, and juke joints, prior to having very successful music careers as touring and recording artists. Fronted by Tom Vitorino, as hard a working performer as The Boss, accompanied by his 6’7” on stage foil Bobby Holley as the late, great Clarence “Big Man” Clemons, you will take a double take, with your eyes and your ears. Fully backed by a house-rocking band, that just so happens to have some of the best touring/session musicians in the business bringing the thunder night and night, THE RISING, is the only thing that is the next best thing to the Boss & The E Street Band! With a touring history that includes everything from weddings where the bride jumped up and played saxophone, to the honor of playing for the military at even some of the more remote bases in Afghanistan, and Iraq; in the last 12 years THE RISING has been there, and there too! “Every night, be it a sold out theater, or some super-fan’s 40th birthday party, we play every note like it is our last”, stated Vitorino, continuing: “Springsteen fans know every word, they sing every saxophone line, many have seen Bruce 100 times or more, so when they come to see us, we do our utmost to let them have a live concert experience, that is not a recreation, but an organic event. Just like the original, we come out every night, and try to make a connection with the crowd, they are why we came. We work every night to have some sense of communion with our audience, which really is Bruce’s audience.” Doing justice to a legendary artist who is not just still living, but still touring and creating, and releasing new chart topping records makes for no easy task. THE RISING takes to this responsibility head on, and on any given night you can witness a four hour performance that will span the 5 decades of Bruce’s music. Every note is played with the intent to capture the heart, faith, and spirit of the might E Street Band. You will hear the hours of attention paid to getting it to sound just right, not to tight, not too loose, equal parts bar band, gospel choir, and tight wire act. The attention to detail continues on even to the choice of instruments, amplification, drums, piano and organ, and the thick wall of sound they produce is unmatched by anything but the real thing. It would be easier to kind of, sort of care, or take a bunch of short cuts, and pretend you are respecting an artist, and more importantly their fans. THE RISING does not pretend. Their passion is real. Their talent is real. Their blood, sweat, and tears are real. There are no pre-recorded tracks, or pretend playing. There is no make-up, or make believe voices. The band uses all of its collective power to hold true to the artistic vision, to both honor the artist, and the fans. Performing songs spanning the nearly five decades of Bruce Springsteen's catalogue; from "Greetings From Asbury Park" through Springsteen's newest releases, they deliver each song with the same power, heart, and soul as Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band. C'mon up to THE RISING - the "House-Rocking" "Earth -Shaking", "Heart-Stopping", tribute to Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band. As far as a blurb on the band: The Rising - Bruce Springsteen Tribute performs classic hits and sing along anthems from Bruce's storied career. The energy, the passion, the talent, and the look is all there in this truly amazing seven piece band. From longtime Springsteen fans to those just discovering this great American artist, you're in for some great music and a truly high energy performance.

Community: Free concert, "The Tuners" playing at Farnsworth Park on Aug. 27 at 7pm, CCR tribute band.
 
THE TUNERS
 
Creedence Clearwater Revival tribute band, The Tuners is performing a FREE concert at Farnsworth Park Saturday August 27 at 7:00 pm.  Farnsworth Park located at the top of Lake Avenue at 568 E. Mount Curve Ave.
 
 
The Tuners are brothers of different mothers, (and fathers!). Rick Dunham, Rob Heard, and Gary Watson starting performing together in high school. Their passion is the same today as it was when they were young musical heroes performing for school dances and local concerts. They still can’t get enough of playing live music! 
 
Rick and Rob meet in Whittier, CA at age 15, young musicians with very different musical influences. Rick played bluegrass guitar and banjo. Rob was a hard rock guitarist. They began getting together to jam, became friends, but had little in common musically. Rob solved this problem by loaning Rick a Vox bass guitar and some records of bands like Mountain, Led Zeppelin, CCR, and The Who, suggesting they start a rock band. 
 
Gary Watson was a friend of Rick and Rob’s who played acoustic 12-string guitar, and loved long extended jams. In the summer between 11th and 12th grade, Gary also “went electric” with the purchase of a Gibson SG, and the band was born. They called it Circus.
 
With the addition of a drummer, Circus began performing professionally, starting at local school dances and backyard parties. When they were all of legal age (more or less!) they hit the booming nightclub circuit in Los Angeles and Orange County performing five and six nights a week. Every week. They changed the band name to Stoney Lonesome.
 
They became a tight, versatile, in-demand group, as well as a backing band for numerous Elvis impersonators and 50’s rock acts like Joe Houston, The Shirelles, and The Coasters.
 
When country music became popular in Southern California in the early 80’s, the band played OC country music clubs The Cowboy, The Silver Bullet, The Crazy Horse, and more, becoming one on the busiest bands on the circuit. 
 
In the mid-80s, after many years, many drummers, and many incarnations, Rick, Rob, and Gary renamed the band The Tuners, and continue to perform  great music together today.
 

With the addition of the very talented drummer, Steve Swartout (tonight is Steve’s sixth show at Farnsworth!), The Tuners will perform a special Creedence Clearwater Revival tribute. We welcome you to sit back, sing along, dance, or simply enjoy The Tuners nod to CCR tonight!
