The RRazz Room, San Francisco’s premier nightclub, will present Rock & Roll Hall of Fame funk/rock group, THE FAMILY STONE from tonight, December 6 to 9. The engagement features original founding members and R&B Pioneer Award Winners, Jerry Martini, Cynthia Robinson and Greg Errico. The show will also feature Alex Davis and Trina Johnson on vocals, Nate Wingfield on guitar and musical director Blaise Sison on bass. The first inter-racial / inter-gender band in Rock & Roll history bring you the hits of The Family Stone such as "I Want to Take You Higher," “Everyday People," “Dance To The Music," "Hot Fun In The Summertime," "Family Affair" and "Sing a Simple Song."
THE FAMILY STONE are credited as one of the first racially-integrated bands in music history, belting their message of peace, love and social consciousness through a string of hit anthems that fused R&B, soul, funk and rock n roll. On 'Different Strokes by Different Folks' a stylistically, culturally and racially disparate group of chart-toppers mirrors that idealistic diversity.
Back in 1967, when the interracial, mixed-gender combo burst onto the scene with their debut album, the burgeoning rock & roll subculture was hungry for fresh kicks and different sounds. But no one was quite prepared for the magical, multi-faceted musical mix Sly and company served up. Their music was an inspired blend of rock, soul, pop, jazz, and an emerging genre soon to be dubbed funk. It packed a powerful, joyous wallop, delivering all the things one hoped to find in music: The thrill of the new, the excitement of the unexpected, a galvanizing groove, and lyrics that actually said something. The Family Stone continues giving you the musical experience that has brought them in front of over half a million people through Europe and the US; spreading the roots of funk and Rock & Roll.
The RRazz Room is located at 222 Mason Street, San Francisco, Calif. The Family Stone will play tonight, December 6 at 8:00 PM, Friday, December 7 at 8:00 PM, Saturday, December 8 at 7:00 PM, Saturday, December 8 at 9:30 PM, and Sunday, December 9 at 7:00 PM.
