Come celebrate Earth Day & reaffirm your commitment to the planet with one of the hottest, greenest and most inspiring indie performers gracing stages today! DiMicele is not only a stellar musician but also a true activist known for eco-anthems "Defend the Earth", "In a World" and "Chinook Blues".
Alice has shared the stage with folks like Bonnie Raitt, Joan Baez, Arlo Guthrie, Janis Ian, David Grisman, Steve Winwood, Michael Franti, and many more. She's played the Strawberry Music Festival, Earthdance, Joshua Tree Music Festival, Berkeley Earth Day, and the Oregon Country Fair. Alice turns heads everywhere with her percussive guitar style and compelling voice and blows minds with her trio of outstanding players which is making a splash on the festival and jamband circuit.
A musicians musician Alice has assembled a flexible group of monster players for this appearance she will perform with Jeff Pevar (CSN, Rickie Lee Jones, Phil Lesh & Friends, Cast of Clowns, Ray Charles Quartet, etc) and Damien Erskine (Cast of Clowns, Gino Vanelli, Les McCann, Jeff Lorber)
This group provides a sublime experience of folk and rock and roll. Attendees were simply and indescribably blown away by their last performance here. It doesn't matter if you've ever heard of them, you have to see them!
The first thing you'll notice about Alice DiMicele is her voice. With a five-octave range that is intense, sensual, rich and soulful, DiMicele has been known to turn a noisy bar silent within a few notes. Her warm presence and humor disarm and create a rare intimacy between audience and performer. Whether singing a jazzy-folk number, belting a sassy blues, or rocking out on one of her trademark rhythmic earthy grooves, Alice is a vocalist that moves people. A kick-ass guitarist as well, whether playing solo or with a band her acoustic guitar conjures percussive poly-rhythms, bass lines, and melodies that perfectly frame her vocals. With ten solo recordings to her credit her songwriting has covered a lot of ground. Inspired by activists and folks doing good things for the earth, her songs reflect the beauty of this planet with a voice that reminds some people of Phoebe Snow, others of blues musician Rory Block and others, of a female Ben Harper. It's no surprise that her influences include Delta Blues artists like Mississippi John Hurt and Robert Johnson but she also grew up listening to classic rock like The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, and Janis Joplin. Folk singers Odetta and Kate Wolf were instrumental in shaping her performance but her biggest vocal and songwriting inspirations are Stevie Wonder and jazz singer Abbey Lincoln.
