We just added KZSC stickers and one-of-a-kind handmade KZSC buttons and newly re-issued 88 point 1 tee shirts in all sizes to our website. It’s not too late to grab some of these limited edition items as a thank you for your donation to KZSC. We’ll put your gift to work, activating our volunteers and listener-sponsored studios to bring you the best local arts, culture, and news from the Monterey Bay!
What do you get when you take a batch of incredible songs, five veteran players who have never played together, with an arsenal of five musical minds working in unison to reinvent them? You get Hard Working Americans. Genres meld seamlessly with the birth of this group, featuring artists from the Americana, singer/songwriter, experimental, jam and rock communities. Hard Working Americans is: Todd Snider (vox), Dave Schools of Widespread Panic (bass), Neal Casal of The Chris Robinson Brotherhood (guitars/vox), Chad Staehly of Great American Taxi (keys) and Duane Trucks of Col. Bruce Hampton’s school of music and Trucks family lineage (drums).
Snider is a cult hero in Americana circles, a prolific tunesmith who has released more than a dozen albums in the past two decades. During his solo shows, he often channels the spirit of Woody Guthrie or that of his mentor, Jerry Jeff Walker, delivering politically charged underdog tales with wry humor. Somewhat surprisingly, Snider also is a huge improvisational rock fan. About two years ago, he asked Schools, who lives in California, to join him for a show in Napa. Schools then helped Snider assemble a crew that would fulfill his jam-band dreams, and Hard Working Americans was born.
One pair of tickets ($90 value) will be offered as a thank you gift for donating to KZSC! Donor’s name will be placed on the guest list.
