LateForDinner Group PhotoLate for Dinner will be performing at an old-fashioned Halloween costume party and dance to benefit the Gold Trail Grange in Coloma on Highway 49 on Saturday, Oct. 26.

The benefit is sponsored by the members of the Gold Trail Grange to raise money for revitalizing the grange and bringing it back as a viable hall for community events.

The doors open at 6 p.m. to allow families to come early and participate. The music starts at 7 and will continue to 11 p.m.

Free munchies will be served and there will be food, desserts, beer, wine and soft drinks for sale.

The cost is $15 for adults, $7 for young people 12 to 18 and kids 11 and under are free.

Late for Dinner has been performing in the Placerville area for nearly 30 years and is known for playing high vibe rhythmic dance and reggae music.

Founding member and rhythm guitar player Bruce Bonnello said, “We actually got our start in Coloma at the old Vineyard House.”

After a successful audition, they were asked what the name of the band was, and not having one, another founding member and lead singer Dave Hamblen replied, “Call us anything you want but don’t call us, no in fact our name is Late for Dinner.”

The name stuck and three decades later the band is still having a great time playing for benefits, wineries, weddings and friends.

A third founding member and lead singer Lee Ann Hamblen said the group’s purpose is to connect with the audience and just have a great time.

Originally a rock, rhythm and blues group, Late for Dinner has evolved into a reggae, rock fusion sound that is highly danceable.

The talented local muscians produce a tight professional sound that is both polished and fun.

Rounding out the band are long time members; drummer Ricky Long, bassist Rob Brown, keyboardist Rich Faircourt, lead guitarist Michael Boron and lead keyboardist Bill Snyder.

An original member and current member of Aftershock, Bob Hansen sits in on horns from time to time.

Unsung heroes of the group are sound engineer Mike Jones and assistant sound engineer and equipment manager Mark Kempster.

“This is sure to be a great time, one of the great Halloween parties of the season and it is for a good cause,” said Denise Hansen, grange member.
