JOHNNY SMITH JAZZ at The Beach Chalet

JOHNNY SMITH JAZZ at The Beach Chalet

Artist Johnny Smith began his musical life at a very young age. Born into a musical family, Johnny’s mother nurtured his vocal talents while his uncle and aunt, well known music icons Delaney & Bonnie, provided musical mentoring and advice. But it was a televised performance of Elvis playing “Hound Dog” that truly inspired the 9 year old Smith to pick up the guitar and pursue a life of performance and by the age of 10, he was regularly invited to perform on stage with local professional musicians.
Smith eventually relocated to San Francisco and formed Alias Smith, a roots/rock influenced band. Alias Smith’s selt-titled debut CD garnered much praise, and helped the band to secure an 18 date European tour, as well as stage performances alongside prominent artists including The Beach Boys, Starship, Maria Muldaur, and Roger McGuinn.
Smith subsequently released the solo album “Just a Man,” in which his maturity as a musician is realized as his sultry, soulful voice weaves throughout songs reminiscent of sophisticated blues melded with upbeat rock tempos. The hit “Love Is like a Rock” became #1 on radio request lines.
Johnny was named "Best Performer" 3 years in a rowby the Northern California Songwriters Association, and is a regular on live television and radio broadcasts.
Johnny Smith still performs on the original Martin D-35 that started it all.

Dos Four

Dos Four

Dos Four (Leyder Chapman) is an impressive performer with a unique sound and powerful lyrics. Each show is delivered with incredible energy and will have the entire audience on their feet moving by the time he is ready to start the second song. The music itself, written and created by Dos Four, is a unique fusion of current and traditional rhythms from both Cuba and the U.S. - a distinct blend of hip hop, reggaeton, salsa, and mambo as well as many other rhythms. And when you listen to this artist's list of influences, you begin to understand why: Benny More, Los Van Van, Charanga Habanera, Munequitos de Matanzas, Tego Calderon, Don Omar, Snoop Dog and Jay-Z just to name a few.
