Texas cowboy, Clay Walker comes to the Sonoma-Marin Fair on Thursday, June 21 with his evocative voice and energetic stage presence. Country fans won’t be able to get enough of Clay’s top singles “What’s It to You”, “Dreaming with my Eyes Open,” “If I Could Make Living,” “This Woman and This Man,” and “Rumor Has It.”
Having scored four platinum-selling albums, two gold albums, and discs that sold over 500,0000 units, Clays most proud of having placed seventh in the cutting horse competition at the Houston Livestock Rodeo, the largest rodeo in the United States. Staying true to his Texas roots, Walker is as much cowboy as he is country rock star.
In 1996 Walker was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, upon which he set his mind to overcome. Since then he has founded Band Against MS (BAMS) to fight the disease and has raised upwards of $5,000,000 for the cause. He also co-founded Military Warriors Support Foundation, which awards mortgage-free homes to wounded heroes injured during combat in Iraq and Afghanistan.
After more than a decade in the national spotlight, Clay Walker believes the best is yet to come. “I trust my gut more than ever now,” he says. “I definitely don’t feel like a rookie, but at the same time, I think the best years of my recording career are ahead of me. I believe if the good Lord wants it, who’s going to stop it?”
Legendary powerhouse 38 Special will blow fans away with their timeless hits and signature sound. With more than 20 million in sales, these wild-eyed southern boys will rock Petaluma with their arena-rock pop smashes, “Hold On Loosely,” “Rockin’ Into the Night,” “Caught Up in You,” “Fantasy Girl,” “If I’d Been the One,” “Back Where You Belong,” “Chain Lightnin’,” “Second Chance,” and more.
After more than four decades together and 15 albums, 38 Special is a precision unit of brotherhood and camaraderie. The bands team includes guitarist/vocalist Don Barnes and Danny Chauncey, bassist Barry Dunaway, drummer Gary Moffatt and keyboardist/vocalist Bobby Caps.
Barnes shares, “And the magic’s still there, when those lights go down and we all walk up those steps to the stage and hear that crowd roar, it’s a real rush. It feels like we’re getting ready to strap ourselves in and it just takes off from there.”
San Jose natives, Smash Mouth will take the stage after nearly 21 years since their smash-hit album “Fush Yu Mang” was released in 1997. Get ready for an electric performance of “Walkin’ On The Sun”, “FYM”, “All-Star”, “Then The Morning Comes”, “Can’t Get Enough Of You Baby”, “ Pacific Coast Party” and “I’m a Believer”.
“We’re a totally different band live,” enthused Smash Mouth lead singer Steve Harwell. “People are constantly telling me how much more powerful our songs are live compared to the studio versions.”
Without doubt the most exciting news for Smash Mouth in 2018 is the reunification of their classic and most relevant line-up with Paul Delisle, Mike Klooster and the return of Gregc Camp and Michael Urbano. With dovetailing and galvanizing new energy/serendipity, 2018 can be nothing but a watershed year for the Grammy nominated, 12times-platinum, veteran pop-stars.
