Jazz & Blues Siren Kim Nalley

Caf Americain with special guests Kim Nalley, and pianist Paul Tillotson will perform their Gypsy Music in the Sun Valley Boiler Room Friday & Saturday, March 26 & 27. Doors open at 9pm. Cover is $10 and the first 10 people at the door get in Free.

Kim Nalley-
Recently named one of the “Ten Most Influential African Americans in the Bay Area,” Kim Nalley has an international reputation as one of world’s best jazz & blues vocalists. Known for her ability to turn a chattering cocktail-sipping crowd into a rapt audience of lifelong fans in minutes with a beguiling combination sass, soul and smarts, no trip to San Francisco is complete without hearing Kim Nalley perform.

Caf Americain-
Standing at a musical crossroad of the world, the acoustic string group Caf Americain draws from the bohemian sounds of European caf music, romantic gypsy jazz, elegant Brazilian Choros and Bossa Novas, and, of course, the always hip Great American Song Book.
Caf Americain is the brain-child of internationally respected guitarist Ned Boynton. He is joined by renowned musicians Jason Vanderford – guitar, and Michael Zisman – mandolin.

Paul Tillotson-
What separates Tillotson from many jazz pianists today is his ability to write and create his own beautiful music. When he performs live, the audience experiences his pleasure of sharing his music with them. For Tequila Time, he wrote seven original tracks. “My writing style is simple – I wake up with an idea in my head and I sing it. Sometimes I’m walking down the street in Manhattan or skiing down a double diamond slope in Sun Valley and a melody will come to me . . . I sing it over and over then I sit down at the piano (Margaret, his 1928 Mason & Hamlin) and fill it out. When it’s done I present it to the guys and we create a masterpiece together."

Coles Whalen to perform January 8 & 9 in the Boiler Room

Coles Whalen and her band to play the Sun Valley Boiler Room Friday & Saturday, January 8 & 9, 2010.
Doors open at 9pm ~ Cover is $10 ~ First 10 people at the door get in FREE!
Coles Whalen knows how to jump start a music career, literally. After independently releasing an EP in 2005, she bought a pick-up truck and camper and never looked back. In the next 12 months, she played over 150 venues across the western U.S. and was able to release her follow up, full-length record "Gee Baby," in February of 2006.

Steppin’ Out Magazine said of the release "Whalen’s voice has more than enough power to carry a rock anthem, but she prefers to use that power to sustain her gentler, more pensive moments. Her pitch and articulation – vocal and instrumental – are flawless."

Whalen sold more than 10,000 records in the U.S. and Canada straight out of the back of her truck. In 2007 Whalen released her third solo project, "Nothing is Too Much" and parked the camper for good. Forming a new band in her hometown of Denver, CO, she’s opened for Paula Cole, Pat Benatar, The John Butler Trio, Rufus Wainwright, Melissa Ferrick and Reckless Kelley among others.

Ricardo Baca, Pop Music Critic for The Denver Post wrote "Whalen delivers an absolutely great show, she left a lasting impression on me."

Whalen is not only making waves in the U.S., she and her band were declared the winners of Akon’s Showcase in Montreal, Quebec Canada 2009. The Whistle Stop Road Record, presented by, is Whalen’s fourth solo album, released in October 2009. While on tour to support this record, Whalen will take a few weeks off to be in the studio with producer Keith Stegall (Alan Jackson) and Akon working on her fifth full – length release, expected to hit the airwaves in February of 2010.
