About

The Miners Foundry and Paul Emery Music are pleased to present Love Train with special guest Elevation (feat. J Silk) on Tuesday, December 31, 9:00pm, at our annual New Year’s Eve Bash.

Love Train is a 6-piece dance band that taps into the same gold vein of 60’s soul and R&B as the Blues Bros and the Commitments. If you attended the Miners Foundry New Year’s Eve Bash in 2018, you will remember them as the opening act. Our audience had so much fun with them, we brought them back for 2019!

Belting out soul hits from Wilson Picket, Otis Redding, Aretha Franklin, the O’Jays, Sam and Dave, Stevie Wonder and many more, Love Train delivers a powerfully funky vintage soul groove that WILL get you dancing!

Guitarist/vocalist Jonathan Lyerly, and bassist/vocalist Karel Hendee are joined by ace drummer Tim Bulkley, and backed by a stellar 3-piece horn section (Phil Kember, John DeBoer and Jerry Grant) who recently appeared with the Temptations!

Opening the show will be local funk favorite Elevation featuring J Silk, a high energy funk/rock band from Northern California. Their original music was born in the clubs and bars of Grass Valley, Nevada City and Auburn. They are a jam band and a dance band with an emphasis on heavy bass lines and funky grooves. The smooth vocals of front man J Silk and singer Brynn Farwell give Elevation a fresh sound that’s both old school and modern. They released their first album in October, 2018,  “ELEVATION featuring J Silk,” the tracks were recorded live in the studio to keep that ‘live’ feel and unique sound. The bands motto…ELEVATE YOUR FUNKIN’ LIFE! Currently the band is taking time to work on their second album, release sometime 2019.

About

Clara and The Nutcracker” is a delightful version of the classic holiday tale “The Nutcracker Suite” by E.T.A. Hoffmann.  The cast runs the gamut, from youngsters making their stage debut to advanced accomplished dancers performing en pointe, and all levels in between.  Holt Ballet Conservatory’s production tells the tale of Clara, whose Christmas present of a toy nutcracker solider inspires a magical dream filled with battling mice, dancing sugar canes, and visits from ambassadors from afar. These variations provide an opportunity for classically trained ballet dancers to showcase and share their carefully crafted talent.  Children will be enchanted and adults will be inspired by this performance to remember!

Holt Ballet Conservatory opened in 2011 and specializes in traditional classical ballet training for students aged 3 and up.
