KEITH GREENINGER

THE RENDEZVOUS

The award winning singer songwriter comes to Chico to celebrate his newly released album Soul Connection with a band of seasoned veterans: Billy Payne from Little Feat on keys, Hutch Hutchinson and Ricky Fataar from Bonnie Raitt’s band on bass and drums, and Randy Ray Mitchell from Warron Zevon’s band on the guitar. He sounds a lot like all the other folk/country songwriters, but his voice is uniquely his own, with an earthy soulfulness suffusing his notes. I’ll just say that again: “suffusing.” Tickets are $22 through chicotickets.com, doors open at 6:30pm.
