About this show
21st Century Roots Rock/Americana/Blues/Reggae
Jimmy Dillon and Lorin Rowan/guitar & vocals
Michael Peloquin/sax & harmonica
Jeff Lewis/trumpet & percussion
The San Francisco Music Club, led by Dillon and Rowan (who were founding members of Marin County’s own The Edge), have now transformed their high energy rock/reggae sound into an exciting and colorful cross pollination of styles and genres; a world music experience that draws from Afro-Cuban/Hi-Life, funky New Orleans grooves, R&B, and classic Jamaican roots music reminiscent of Bob Marley & The Wailers or Toots and the Maytals. Think Paul Simon’s Graceland with an extra helping of Red Beans and Rice, a side of Gumbo, and a Red Stripe.
Paul Liberatore from the Marin Independent Journal says “Dillon and Rowan are consummate singers and guitarists with a long and impressive history in Marin, but they chose to identify with San Francisco in their band name to give their ensemble a broad appeal. For this new venture, they've brought in bassist Eric McCann, drummer Matt Willis, Michael Peloquin on saxophone and harmonica, Jeff Lewis on trumpet and percussion and singer Sakai. This is a crack band comfortable in the variety of styles showcased on this sparkling San Francisco Music Club debut CD, a culturally rich, exquisitely produced and finely polished album that gives world music an accessible, fresh and fun new sound.”
The San Francisco Music Club brings to the stage an explosive rock-steady rhythm section with fiery guitar interplay, sax & trumpet wrapping around the soulful vocals of Dillon’s baritone growl and Rowan’s clear tenor.
