Call Black- hawk Solar to charge by phone or to get additional in- formation from Bill or Mel Rockett at 283-1396. The name Earl Thomas has become legend in San Francisco music circles. His irresistible mix of "Blues and Broadway': holds the top spot on the Biscuits & Blues entertainment roster. An internationally respect- ed artist, he is also an award winning songwriter, scoring hits for Etta James, Solomon Burke, Janiva Magness and, most recently, Tom Jones whose outstanding cover of "Git Me Some" is a YouTube sensation. Earl Thomas had never picked up a microphone in his life until he was nearly killed after losing his footing at the edge of a 50-foot ........ ravine, landing unconscious on a pile of broken glass and debris. Luckily, he was only bruised. Not knowing the extent of the damage upon regaining consciousness, he reflected on his disappointment at not having pursed his dream of becoming a singer, and re- Earl Thomas & the Blues Ambassadors will play the Saturday evening dance, July 10, at the Solar Cook-Off. Photo courtesy Plumas Arts solved to do just that if he survived. Nine years later, he record- ed 1991's "Blue ... Not Blues," strongly influenced by his parents' love of blues and gospel music and his own affinity for '60s and '70s soul music. His "I Sing the Blues" be- came a hit for Etta James, and he made his European debut at the famed Mon- treaux Jazz Festival in Switzerland. He toured Europe with such artists as Elvis Costello and B.B. King and Etta James. He has released nine critically acclaimed record- ings since then. An Earl Thomas show blends the sensuality Of Stax Soul with the grittiness of modern electric blues. The real indication of his ta'lent is the power of his voice and his knack for crafting memo- rable contemporary blues ) and this iswhat made Thomas one of the most high- ly respected blues artists in the world. Those who have lost faith in the ability of contempo- rary soul music to capture the warmth, inspiration, in- tegrity and intensity o[ the idiom, need to make plans to not miss the 20-year closeout celebration with Earl Thomas on the bouncing Grange Hall floor. The Rocketts wanted to book someone special for this moment. When a friend pointed out that Thomas was home in between trips to England, Norway and Italy, plans fell into place. In their friend's words," Earl Thomas is a great singer and an incredible en- tertainer. He takes no prison- ers. Musicians want to back him up because his gigs are always a blast. This is a show not to miss."
