Free Peoples

Free Peoples are what we all wish to be, and although it’s a worthy concept, we can’t form a band called Free People’s because one already exists.
They’re from the Bay Area, they call their music an Americana/Rock/Jazz hybrid, and you’ll be able to check them out in person at the Rio Nido Roadhouse on Saturday night. With Tim Sawyer, vocals/guitar, Johnny Downer, guitar/vocals, Mike DiPirro, bass/vocals, Jason Thor, trombone and assorted winds and James Foster handling percussion, Free Peoples has established a high-profile online presence and has entertained audiences in more than a dozen states.
Their melodies are intricate, their harmonies, carefully mapped out  and their stylings are sincere and passionate.
 They’ve performed at  festivals and county fairs, and Burning Man and the paths they’ve traveled are  horizon-free. They’ll be making a return trip to the family-friendly Rio Nido Roadhouse and $5 will get you in the door.
When: 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., Saturday, December 15
Where: 14540 Canyon Two Road, Rio Nido  869-0821

Prisma Trova Duo is composed of Mimi Pirard, lead singer in the internationally-flavored band,  D’Ginn, and Andrew DeVeny,  both of whom discovered their passion and love of music early on.
With fathers whose travels took them to Egypt, Okinawa,  the  American midwest and deep south, Paraguay, Malaysia, Germany, and France they gained exposure to a rich and multi-layered potpourri of different musical and cultural styles and together fused their diverse influences and writing styles into a unique and creative duo which crosses borders and excites the senses.

Prisma Trova Duo

Their songs are a mix of originals and covers sung in English, French, and Spanish, and their audiences have come to expect the unexpected.  You can share their travels, be entertained and enjoy a buffet of world and domestic music (while dining) in the cozy confines of the Roadhouse’s  heated pavilion for $5.
When: 6 p.m.to 10 p.m., Sunday, December 16
Where: 14540 Canyon Two Road, Rio Nido  869-0821
