Ricky Estrin and The Nightcats will follow the dance performances with a 2 p.m. concert at the Steven Young Amphitheater. Since the 2009 release of the band’s celebrated Alligator Records debut, “Twisted,” the group has toured non-stop, honing creative synergy to a razor’s edge. Night after night, the band blazes its own innovative musical path while still remaining true to the blues. The results of all of this natural chemistry can be heard on the irresistible new album, “One Wrong Turn.”

On Sunday, Over the Edge brings its dynamic combination of Adam Gottstein on guitar/vocals, Dave Holob on electric violin and mandolin/vocals and Joe Bellamy on electric bass to the amphitheater at 11 a.m. The result is music that combines and complements their artistic sensibilities. The trio blends their sound to cover a wide range of musical styles from jazz and blues, bluegrass and country to ballads.

Sporting a roster of seasoned musical veterans from every genre yet known, Apple Z follows with a 2 p.m. concert. The band has unique and clever treatments for the timeless catalog of popular music everyone knows and loves. Apple Z is a shiny new band with vast performance experience in all types of venues and formats due to the members many diverse musical projects.

Net proceeds from the event will benefit the Arts in Education programs of the El Dorado Arts Council, the Friends of Youth programs of the El Dorado Hills Optimist Club and the El Dorado Hills community outreach programs of the El Dorado Hills Chamber of Commerce.
