The Next 3 Showcases on our Santa Rosa Stage
Wednesday, March 30th | Doors at 7:30 Show 8:15-10:30pm
Twisted Pine (Boston) and Big Kid Fun (Caitlin of Rainbow Girls)
LOW TICKET ALERT
Praised by NPR for their “upbeat, poppy vibe; energetic, driving rhythms; and virtuosic solos,” Twisted Pine (Boston Music Awards Americana Artist of 2021) explores a sound they call Americana funk — which takes traditional music in exhilarating directions. “We’re rooted in bluegrass,” says bassist Chris Sartori, “continually inspired by explorers like Bela Fleck, Jerry Douglas, and Sierra Hull. Our bluegrass is jazzy, our indie folk is poppy, our grooves are funky.” Twisted Pine [Kathleen Parks, fiddle; Dan Bui, mandolin; Chris Sartori, bass; Anh Phung, flute … and Ethan Robbins, guitar, joining the group on this run] grooves with fearless improvisation and intricate arrangements. “They were once bluegrass,” wrote The Boston Globe, “but … this Boston band has become something else, a wider version of string band, boundary jumpers akin to outfits like PunchBrothers, Nickel Creek, and Crooked Still.”
Big Kid Fun
Caitlin Gowdey, usually of the band Rainbow Girls, is a lo-fi loving dreamy garage finger picker and occasional nose picker who will play songs with above average and sometimes even great lyrics.

An Evening with Jim Peterson and Jeremy Gorman
For San Francisco Bay Area multi-instrumentalist, Jeremy Gorman, music has been nothing short of a lifetime journey of self-expression and self-realization. Currently performing as a solo-artist, Jeremy has collaborated with many bands around the North Bay area including a project titled spaceMüs with daughter Blair Gorman.
With a deep knowledge of music theory, along with a vast range of musical tastes, Jeremy creates story-driven songs that capture ideas of hope and gratitude and of his own personal life’s journey.
It is quite difficult to place Jeremy Gorman’s music in a specific genre-box, as he draws from the likes of Jazz, Blues, Rock, classical and other styles, and yet, he manages to bring them all together into one cohesive sound.
Originally from Berkeley, California, Jeremy now resides in Sonoma County where he produces music for multiple artists.
Jim has been performing and playing in Sonoma County as a musician and actor for over 40 years. He is a singer and songwriter who plays guitar, mandolin, electric bass and trombone. He plays with and is a founding member of the long running Americana roots rock band Stony Point, who has recently released their third album. He also is currently playing with his long time friend and musical partner Jeremy Gorman, with whom he started his musical journey here in Sonoma County, and Jim has been a member in local favorites Tsonoma, the Shannon Rider Band and Miss Kitty and the Big Dogs. Jim has also performed in numerous stage shows and has opened for many well-known performers including Elvin Bishop, David Lindley and Asleep at the Wheel.

Josh Windmiller (The Crux) and Jet Black Pearl (from The Netherlands by way of Paris and now Portland)
Often seen behind the mic with his theatrical folk punk band, The Crux, Josh Windmiller is performing a special solo set at The Lost Church. He likes to shift gears onstage, performing soul-baring ballads with a dash of humor, swinging love songs set at different points in history, and sometimes accompanies himself with an eight foot steel chain. www.thecruxmusic.cominstagram.com/thecruxlab
Jet Black Pearl
Hailing from the Netherlands via France, Jet Black Pearl is a groovy and innovative musician. She combines accordion, live looping, beat boxing, flute, and imaginative songwriting into a feast for the ears and eyes. She has performed in music venues, big tops, prisons, house boats and theaters all over the world. ’A formidable force of music, and truly has to be seen to be believed’ (Three Weeks, Edinburgh Fringe Festival). ‘The most eccentric and equally the most talented woman you will see in Edinburgh this month’ (Broadway Baby, Edinburgh Fringe Festival)

West of Twin Peaks Radio with MJ Call
Fridays 12-2pm PST on Lost Church Free Radio
Episode #151 debuts this Friday, April 1st at 12pm PST
It’s no coincidence that this Friday on 4/1, “One of Four,” the new LP by SF cabaret dreampop/punk artist GROOBLEN drops.
The album is a reflection on a real coincidence – when COVID hit, and simultaneously, project founder/frontwoman Ellie Stokes got a strange diagnosis from her doctors. She is truly “one of four.”
Hear her story, and dive deep into her new LP THIS FRIDAY at NOON on an all-new West of Twin Peaks Radio.
This is a totally awesome show with a totally awesome person – so do NOT miss it!
