Original sounds at Smith Flat House

By From page B5 | September 06, 2013

The Smith Flat House, 2021 Smith Flat Road in Placerville, will present music by the band Ethyl on Sunday, Sept. 8, from 3 to 7 p.m. outdoors in the new courtyard.

Ethyl may be new to the local music scene, but the band has been in the works for more than 30 years.

Singer, songwriter and guitar player Gary Rhodes began writing music and playing it with the original Ethyl in Santa Cruz three decades ago and has revived the sound with a new and accomplished group of local musicians.

Believing that there are enough great bands out there playing familiar tunes, Ethyl entertains with a program of all-original songs featuring a variety of styles, including rock and roll, country rock, blues and Cajun country.

Ethyl creates a dynamic new sound that will delight the Smith Flat audience.
