Rewind returns to Wine Smith

From page B3 | July 04, 2014 |

rewind 314Placerville welcomes back the high energy band Rewind this Saturday, July 5. The band takes the stage at 7:30 p.m. at the Wine Smith, 346 Main St. in Placerville.

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, Santana, Neil Young, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Led Zeppelin, the Doors, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Freddy Fender and the Beatles.

Saturday’s musical lineup will consist of saxophonist Charles Baldwin, guitarist and vocalist Dana LeBlanc and bassist Ralph Florence. Rumor has it there will be a surprise guest.

Band leader LeBlanc, is known around the foothills as the “man of a thousand songs” and has worked with several bands throughout his career.

“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 has shared the stage with some of the best players in the area since the early ’80s.

LeBlanc said this band will “rock your socks off. Charles is one of the best saxophonists in the area — playing everything from smooth jazz to knock-down-the-doors rock and roll. Ralph is the glue that holds the group together on bass, playing with style and finesse.

“I figure I’m stuck in some kind of musical time warp. I just love playing and singing music from the ’60s and ’70s. There was such a renaissance of music and art at that time. Album covers chronicled a generation of change — protests of war, free love and a monumental shift in the status quo, with the underlying messages being told in the music,” said LeBlanc.

“It was a very prolific time with so many musical styles around — folk, country, rock, pop, jazz, blues, alternative rock and every possible combination. I want to keep that era alive, playing with passion and high energy. In the show, we try to connect people to the music of that era, playing the songs and sharing stories about the bands or the artists. I believe good music is timeless and takes us back to memories of another point in our lives. We want the audience to walk out of our shows knowing they had a wonderful time, contented … happier than when they arrived,” said LeBlanc.

For more information about the show contact the Wine Smith at 530-622-0516.
