A talented rhythm section includes Brian Logue on drums and Mick Nantell on bass.

Expect mesmerizing harmonies, eclectic acoustic and electric guitar, and intelligent, poetic, and sometimes humorous songwriting featuring selections from Karen’s two discs, Fabulous Junkyard (2008), and Little Words (2010) as well as new material. Listen for well-loved covers like Don’t Stop Believing, Englishman in New York, and Walk the Line, carefully and playfully adapted to shine through this band’s talent.

7pm

This is going to be a fun show replete with some of Chico's finest musicians each performing a couple of songs in honor of ubiquitous local upright bass player, Christine LaPado(one of KJB and the Bona Fides!) and her harrowing experience of a broken hand that brought the Chico music scene to a screeching halt for a month. Basically, we're going to pack Duffy's, drink, play music, and throw money at Christine. Sound like a good night? I've always wanted to play at Duffy's, so here's my chance!

I would like to invite you to a "Karen's Going to Spain Fundraiser-House Concert-Dinner Party". If you haven't heard the news, I'll be leaving for Spain on May 31st to teach English and soak up the music scene for a year. Some kind friends have volunteered to host an intimate part house concert/ part dinner party kind of event as a "buen viaje" gesture. They will provide the food, but ask that you would donate at least $10 towards the funding of my adventure. Due to limited space, we can only have about 25-30 people attend. Therefore, if you'd like to attend, send me at email(click contact), and I'll let you know if you'll be one of the crowd! I wish I could have made it a bigger event to include everyone, but alas, Cafe Coda is quite booked.
