Eddie Money

In 1976, Eddie (Mahoney) Money's’s fate changed when he caught the attention of legendary promoter Bill Graham, who became both a mentor and manager to Money. After signing a recording contract with Columbia Records, Eddie Money burst onto the scene with his eponymous debut album in 1977.  Fans immediately fell in love with Money’s sound, and the album, which went double platinum, featured hits like “Baby Hold On” and “Two Tickets to Paradise.”  Money followed the success of his debut album with a stream of Top 40 hits, as well as some of the era’s most creative videos for songs like “Think I’m in Love” and “Shakin.”  In 1986, Money released Can’t Hold Back, which featured the classic, Grammy-Nominated duet with Ronnie Spector, “Take Me Home Tonight.”  The song reached number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100.  The album went platinum and also featured the hit “I Wanna Go Back.

As the years have passed, Money’s blue-collar brand of Rock n Roll has managed to transcend generations and continues to move audiences today.  Along with having sold more than 28 million records, Money’s songs have appeared in dozens of movies and television shows, and have recently been included in hit video games like “Grand Theft Auto” and “Guitar Hero.”

Brett Eldredge

Country up-and-comer Brett Eldredge has always been drawn to singers, a fact that should come as no surprise to anyone who’s heard the Illinois native’s soulful, distinctive baritone. “I always gravitated towards big voices, because as a kid I had this big voice coming out of me,” says Eldredge. “I was hooked on the way that somebody could tell a story through the tone of their voice.” With a Country Music Association Awards’ nomination for “New Artist of the Year,” his single “Don’t Ya” climbing to No. 1 on the country charts, new single “Beat of the Music” most added at radio in its first week and debut album Bring You Back having just released on August 6 on Atlantic Records, Eldredge is finally getting the chance to share a story of his own.

Eldredge says there was no question that his passion for performance would carry him to Nashville. He had no Plan B. “I never thought of a different career,” he says. “I can’t sit behind a desk, are you kidding? I would go bananas. I have a one-track mind of music always going through my head.” Once in Nashville he picked up the guitar and began writing his own lyrics with some of Nashville's greats.

You can expect a high-energy performance at the Sonoma-Marin Fair. “I want everybody in the crowd to feel the energy that I’m feeling from them,” says Eldredge

Creedence Clearwater
Revisited

Stu Cook and Doug “Cosmo” may not have intended it, but their band Creedence Clearwater Revisited has taken on a startling life of its own. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame rhythm section (bass and drums respectively) from the legendary group Creedence Clearwater Revival launched the Creedence Clearwater Revisited project in 1995 to once again perform live Creedence Clearwater Revival hits - touchstones of a generation - "Proud Mary", "Have You Ever Seen the Rain", "Born on the Bayou" and "Bad Moon Rising" to name just a few. You can expect their concert at the Sonoma-Marin Fair to be jam-packed with songs that are still a staple of radio and movie soundtracks.

As fans who have experienced a Creedence Clearwater Revisited concert can attest, Stu and Cosmo found the right players. Lead singer/rhythm guitar player John Tristao, a powerful tenor with the energy to power songs, initially rose to prominence as lead singer for the band People. The newest touring member is lead guitarist Kurt Griffey. As a guitarist, song writer, producer and performer, Griffey has recorded and toured with musicians including members of the Eagles, Foreigner, the Moody Blues, Wings, Lynyrd Skynryd, Santana, and Journey. Talented multi-instrumentalist Steve Gunner rounds out the group. As Cosmo puts it, “Gun provides live all the overdubs that were on the records. He plays keyboard, acoustic guitar, percussion, harmonica and sings the high harmonies.”

Uncle Kracker

An easy-going ability to take life as it comes has given Uncle Kracker a place in Country (with the Top 10 hit "Smile"),  Pop (“Drift Away,” his Dobie Gray redux that featured Gray on vocals, set a Billboard record for most weeks at #1 on any chart, topping their Adult Contemporary chart for 28 weeks), Rock (“Follow Me,” from the double platinum Double Wide, was a Top 5 hit)and as a D.J./vocalist in rock/rap icon Kid Rock’s Twisted Brown Trucker Band. Then there was “When the Sun Goes Down,” the #1 Country hit that sat on top of the charts for 6 weeks with friend and sometimes tour mate Kenny Chesney plus the multi-format smash hit “All Summer Long” which he co-wrote with Kid Rock.

His latest album Midnight Special is country through and through - love, life, heartbreak, friends, fun, and laughing your way through it, it’s all here.“I started listening to country ‘cause of Hank Williams Jr and ‘Country Boy Will Survive.’ It felt like the rap I was listening to – about life and the way it was. That led me to Charlie Daniels and Linda Ronstadt. . . I hope people can walk away from this music with something, too. People will come up and tell me certain songs mean certain things to them – and that’s crazy! After all, my world isn’t that interesting, or different," says Uncle Kracker.
