The Kings of Western Swing
Featuring Dave Stuckey, Elana James, Whit Smith and James Mason
6:00 pm - Adorni Waterfront Center
We love Western Swing and in what has become a tradition here at Redwood Coast is to feature a collaboration of some of the finest Western Swing musicians in the world for a special Western Swing big band event. We work with our friend, and band leader Dave Stuckey to put together these shows. Ameripolitan Music Award Winner for Best Western Swing, multi-talented Dave Stuckey is a band leader, producer, singer, songwriter, drummer, and swingin' guitarist extraordinaire.
For Redwood Coast in 2023, Dave has once again curated an amazing combination of some of the finest Western Swing musicians in the world for an eleven piece, red hot Western Swing band for this special evening show.
For the "Kings" Dave has teamed up with his friends, Western Swing Hall of Fame Hot Club of Cowtown for what is certain to be a fantastic evening. On the twin fiddles will be the incomparable Elana James along with two time Bob Wills National Fiddle Champion James Mason. The twin guitars feature Hot Club's Whit Smith along with Chris Wilkinson.
Western swing drummer extraordinaire Hal Smith, piano allstar Carl Sonny Leyland, Mikiya Matsuda on steel, Swingin' Steve Pikal on bass fiddle and Marc Caparone on trumpet fill out the roster on the 10 piece big band.
