For a second consecutive year, the Cameron Park Community Services District is presenting concerts at the community center, 2502 Country Club Drive in Cameron Park.

The concert series opens Saturday, Jan. 26 with Joni Morris and the After Midnight Band.

Members of the band are: Fred Treece, lead guitar and vocals; Keith McKee, drums and vocals; Joel Ainger, bass; Bobby Black, pedal steel guitar; and Giorgi Kho Kho Bashvili, keyboard and fiddle.

Morris said the show pays tribute to the “Legendary Ladies of Country Music” — Kitty Wells, Loretta Lynn, Patty Paige, Patsy Cline and Dolly Parton.

Last year, Morris and the band performed at the community center and paid tribute to Cline.

“This year, we’re changing it up a little bit,” said Morris, 62. “We want to try to draw a bigger audience.”

Two of the songs on the play list are Lynn’s “You’re not Woman Enough To Take My Man” and Parton’s “I Will Always Love You.”

Morris’ current CD, “Joni Morris Live” will be on sale for $20 at the concert during intermission and after the show. There are 20 live tracks.

“I always like to greet everyone after the show,” Morris said.

Morris was introduced to country music at an early age.

“My folks sang country music around the house and family gatherings,” said Morris, a Stockton resident. “I was a Motown fan, listening to the Temptations and Aretha Franklin.”

Last year, Morris had 50 shows including the Cameron Park January date.

Tina Helm, recreation supervisor for the district, said Morris wowed last year’s audience and made it a priority for the district to schedule her for this year.

“Don’t miss out on what is guaranteed to be an amazing show,” Helm said.

“The response from the community was awesome,” Morris said. “Cameron Park is a beautiful community. The people were kind, warm and receptive to our show.”

The 90-minute concert is open to all ages.

Doors for the concert will open at 6 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m.

Advance tickets are $18 per person and $34 for couples. The day of the show, tickets are $20 per person.

Tickets can be purchased at the district’s office, 2502 Country Club Drive in Cameron Park, and at Cameron Park Fire Station 89, the Shingle Springs/Cameron Park Chamber of Commerce or online at showclix.com.

Bocca Catering in Folsom will provide food at the concert, Helm said. The Cameron Park Community Foundation will provide beverages, including beer and wine for people 21 and over.

To purchase advance tickets or for more information, contact the Cameron Park Community Service District at 530-677-2231 or visit cameronpark.org.

Scheduled to perform at the center in coming months are The Johnny Cash Tribute Show featuring James Garner on Friday, March 8 and the Capital Pops on Saturday, May 18.

Proceeds from the concerts go toward various programs in the district, Helm said.
