Placerville will rock Friday, Oct. 25, when the high energy band Rewind takes the stage at 7:30 p.m. at the Wine Smith, 346 Main St.

Rewind has been pleasing crowds in the foothills for years. This unique group of musicians is best known for their uncanny ability to take the audience on an exciting and entertaining musical ride, performing classic songs from a wide range of artists including: Johnny Cash, Neil Young, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Led Zeppelin, The Doors, Lynard Skynard and the Beatles.

Friday’s musical lineup will consist of bassist Ralph Florence, saxophonist Charles Baldwin, guitarist and vocalist Dana LeBlanc, and special guest artist Leo “El Swing” on percussion. Leo has played with major artists Earth, Wind and Fire, Ricky Martin and the Miami Sound machine. He brings an exciting blend of unique rhythm and beats to the band.

Band leader LeBlanc, known as the “man of a thousand songs” said, “I am humbled and pleased to be working with such a wonderful group of talented musicians, not just the immediate band members but the many others that come and sit in on a regular basis as well.”

LeBlanc recalled his early days playing the local clubs in and around Placerville.

“The foothill area has been home to some amazing local talent over the years and I am thrilled to have been a part of the scene here since the early ’80s. The music of the ’60s and ’70s was alive and well when I arrived and is still kickin’ today. Good music is timeless and takes us back to memories of another point in our lives,” LeBlanc said.

“I believe music touches our souls and our hearts and should be performed with the energy, spirit and expression the artist intended when they wrote and performed it. We want the audience to walk out of our shows knowing they had a wonderful time, contented … happier than when they arrived,” he said.
