Three additional concerts will double as fundraisers for people affected by the North Bay wildfires.
In Napa, the Live in the Vineyard music festival and Blue Note Napa are hosting a concert in Nov. 3 featuring the All-American Rejects, LeAnn Rimes, Ocean Park Standoff, AJR, ZZ Ward and others. The acoustic show will be held at the JaM Cellars Ballroom, with all proceeds going to the Redwood Credit Union’s North Bay Fire Relief Fund, which will be passed to those who have lost homes in Sonoma, Napa, Mendocino and Lake counties, as well as children and schools impacted by the fires.
Tickets cost $50 and can be purchased here.
Meanwhile, Scott Mickelson is throwing a record release show for his upcoming album, A Wondrous Life, at Bottom of the Hill on Nov. 3. The show also doubles as a fundraiser to raise money for victims impacted by the recent Northern California wildfires.
The Bay Area musician and producer takes the rustic nostalgia of Americana and combines it with elaborate full-band arrangements. Mixed with his narrative lyricism, Mickelson paints melodic visuals that feel like they’re in full technicolor. His previous release, Flickering, made it on the Grammy ballot for Best Folk Album and Best Roots Music Performance. And most recently, RIFF caught him open for Patrick Sweany at Bottom of the Hill.
Other artists set to perform include San Francisco-based co-headliners Sunrunners and Oakland’s Junk Parlor.
All of the show’s proceeds will be donated to the Sonoma County Resilience Fund. Started by the county’s Community Foundation, the fund aims to provide needs and essentials for those affected by the devastating wildfires that tore through Sonoma County and several more across the greater North Bay.
Tickets for the show are $10 online and $12 at the door. More information is available at www.bottomofthehill.com.
The Counting Crows and Brett Dennen will perform at a Nov. 18 benefit at Weill Hall at the Green Music Center in Rohnert Park. The concert, called “For the Love of Sonoma,” was organized by The Family Coppola, BottleRock Presents and Sonoma State University. Proceeds will go to the North Bay Fire Fund and NomaGives.
“The spirit of community in wine country is strong, and we are resilient, and it’s times like these when we band together and help rebuild,” said Corey Beck, Francis Ford Coppola Winery’s president.
Tickets go on sale on Nov. 2 at 10 a.m.
