* Dixie CatsDixie Cats

Time: 7:00 pm

The Dixie Cats uphold a tradition as the oldest organized traditional jazz band functioning in the Tucson area. For well over 40 years they played several nights a week at Gus and Andy’s Steak House and the Ye Old Lantern Restaurant, and now continue to perform as headliners at the Phoenix Jazz Society, the Arizona Jazz Society and at many casinos throughout the southwest. This veteran ensemble (cornet, clarinet, trombone, banjo, drums and bass) emulates the sounds of jazz from the 1920’s and 1930’s with the same instrumentation as that of the early New Orleans jazz groups such as Nick Larocca’s Original Dixieland Jazz Band, the Buddy Bolden Band and the Louis Armstrong Band. Their selection of tunes crosses the most popular list of that time period and is performed in a fun and energetic swing style. The Dixie Cats continue to draw capacity crowds varying from the oldsters down to the young swing-dance devotees.

* SONORAN DOGS Bluegrass SONORAN DOGS Bluegrass

Time: 7:00 pm

Bluegrass music is a form of American roots music initially inspired from Irish, Scottish, English and Welsh traditional songs and instrumentals by the 18th century Appalachian Settlers. Bill Monroe, the Father of Bluegrass, incorporated other cultural influences while refining the sounds into a truly American musical form. Formed in 2011, The Sonoran Dogs have exploded upon the Arizona bluegrass scene, performing at the Sedona, Wickenburg, Prescott, Tucson, and Tubac bluegrass festivals. They are 2013 Rockygrass band contest finalists. The group is comprised of seasoned veterans Peter McLaughlin (1988 National Flatpicking Guitar Champion), Tyler James (2008 Rockygrass Banjo Champion), Mark Miracle on mandolin and vocals (Telluride band contest winner), and Brian Davies (TAMMIES award winning bassist). The Sonoran Dogs performance will feature historical reference and anecdotes exploring this musical form. They perform a collection of traditional bluegrass vocal and instrumental standards, new-grass, Americana, improvisation and original compositions.

* THE MAGIC OF FIELDING WESTTHE MAGIC OF FIELDING WEST

Time: 7:00 pm

It all began in the beginning. Who would ever believe that Fielding West was literally made in Japan. Conceived in the northern island of Hokkaido, Japan. His father, a US Air Force officer, was transferred to Boise, Idaho just-in-time for Fielding to arrive. Ten years later he was introduced to Magic by his grandfather who was an amateur magician. In 1973 while selling cars and going to graduate school at night in Tallahassee, Florida, he met an unknown comedy magician named Steve Martin. That's right, the Steve Martin, before he became famous. After seeing Steve perform, he knew that he wanted to be in show business for the rest of his life. The concept of a comedy act began. Three years later he moved to Jacksonville, Florida and started his own Saturday morning children's show on television with a Post/Newsweek station, WJ XT. The name of the show was Magic Gang and was the highest rated kids show in it's time slot for two years. Not being satisfied with entertaining only children, Fielding pursued a nightclub act. A year and a half after leaving television, he put together a successful touring show called the Amazing Fielding And Company. The show included illusions and hypnosis, which for after two years led him to Las Vegas. There he met Liberace who helped Fielding get his first break by showcasing his act at the Sahara Hotel. Since then he has been working all over the world as a featured star in large production shows and as an opening act for major stars. Fielding's career has now come full circle. He has appeared on a multitude of comedy specials and popular sitcoms. His talents go far beyond stage and screen. Fielding is also a successful comedy writer for other magicians and comedians. He is well-known in the corporate market as a fantastic performer. In a course he created, called Stagecraft 101, he manages speaking seminars for young performers which teach how to speak more effectively.
