Saturday night, May 4, features PK Gregory, 7-10 p.m. He is described as “Johnny Cash meets John Prine, with a smattering of Townes Van Zant thrown in.” PK Gregory brings his one-man trio back to Vino di Sedona for another round of the honkabilly blues.
With a combination of country-blues fingerstyle guitar, bass, harp, vocals, foot percussion, and a wickedly iconoclastic songwriting bent, it’s sure to get the children dancing (albeit somewhat inappropriately.) This is PK’s second to last show at Vino Di Sedona before re-locating to Norway.
Sunday Funday at Vino Di Sedona brings Rick Busbea back for another night of fun and music. May 5, 6-9 p.m. If you ask Rick to label his music style, he will jokingly tell you it’s “Caribbean Country Classic Rock.” As he plays favorites by artists ranging from Kenny Chesney and Johnny Cash to Van Morrison and Marshall Tucker, it’s easy to see his point.
Rick does play some original music, but his passion is cover songs to take his audience down “memory lane.” This belief led to the creation of the “Rick Busbea Jukebox” so his audience can pick their favorites.
Life Is Beautiful’s front man, lead singer and guitarist, KB Bren, performs solo on Music Monday, May 6, 6-9 p.m. KB is a long-time Sedona resident and a life-long musician who has written at least 1,000 songs, fronted numerous local bands (Grateful Fred, Cold December) and played with the LA based 80’s band Fastway.
