Misner and Smith with Gwyneth Moreland!
On December 31, 2017 By admin

Misner and Smith will return to The Melon Ball this February for more music and fun! This time, California native folk singer Gwyneth Moreland will bring her talents too!

With soaring vocal harmonies and story-filled, poetic songwriting – Misner & Smith’s sound hearkens back to the bedrock of modern American rock & folk. Paying tribute to strong influences like Simon & Garfunkel, The Band, and Buffalo Springfield, they invent a sound all their own, seducing listeners with music that captures longing and belonging in the same moment. Their partnership in music is a search for meaning. The songs yearn for connection, ache for understanding, relish in mystery, and rejoice in creation. In a world that often feels to be crumbling down around us, they dig deep, and find hope in simple things, in the beauty that surrounds us all.

Moreland doesn’t hesitate to admit that she loves the old-timey three-part harmonies. With the right voices, it is a great sound. Gwyneth plays often with multi-instrumentalist David Hayes (bassist on many Van Morrison LP’s), and Morgan Daniel (Ms. Moreland’s brother) on guitar in addition to Gene Parsons (former Byrds-Flying Burrito Brothers) on pedal steel, banjo, and harmony vocals.

Mateo Guzman

Join us for a romantic evening of Spanish Guitar and song this Valentines weekend! Bring your honey and a picnic basket and enjoy the sweet sensual sounds of Sonoma County artist Mateo Guzman. When I first heard Mateo play, I was enjoying a peach and mango soaked IPA and Mozzarella-stuffed oxtail meatballs with friends, and I was absolutely surprised at the feeling that this guitarist achieved with his voice. The emotional intensity he pours into his music is something to be admired. Mateo has been a professional singer for over 30 years and has performed at festivals and events all around North and South America.

Tickets are only $15 in advance online or in the store, and $20 at the door!
