WHISTLESTOCK 60s Concert / Benefit 1:00 - 6:00 http://www.whistlestop.org/whistlestock/ Founded in 1954 as Marin Senior Coordinating Council, Whistlestop promotes the independence, well-being and quality of life for older adults and people living with disabilities in Marin County. Whistlestop’s Active Aging Center provides delicious meals, educational classes, multicultural gatherings and helpful information and referral services. Whistlestop also provides special needs transportation services through Marin Access, a partnership of Whistlestop, Marin Transit and Golden Gate Transit. We believe that we share a responsibility to ensure that our older adults age with dignity, grace, and independence. We help them find the services that they need, learn new things, have fun and be active community members for as long as possible.” -Joe O’Hehir, CEO Famous for their song "White Bird", a melancholy ballad that stood out not only for its memorable vocal melody and "seize the day" message, but also for front man David Laflamme's slow-burning violin solo. Multiple albums were laced with classic cuts such as "Hot Summer Day", "Bombay Calling," "Girl With No Eyes", "Wasted Union Blues", "Time Is", "Dolphins", "Misery Loves Company", and many more you'll remember. Today the band performs the music of It's A Beautiful Day along with newer material, moving effortlessly from an almost folksy sound to ethereal jazz to psychedelic to straight on rock & roll performing selections from three new CDs and over seven of their previous albums. The show is enhanced with David Laflamme's delightful reminiscing of the San Francisco Summer of Love Days and 40 plus years of performing. The current band boasts the longest continuous lineup of 10 years with 4 of the 6 members going back 34-45 years! David LaFlamme on violin and vocals, Linda LaFlamme vocals, original drummer Val Fuentes, 34 year veteran Toby Gray on bass, 14 year veteran Gary Thomas on keyboards, and Rob Cunningham on guitar.
