Mark Etheredge and Band Live in Concert Feat. Tom Politzer
San Francisco resident and Adult Contemporary recording artist Mark Etheredge will appear in concert on Saturday, March 2 at 8:00PM at Metropolitan Community Church of San Francisco, 150 Eureka Street. Joining vocalist/keyboardist Etheredge will be local session musicians Dave Shul-guitar, Wally Schnalle-drums, Mark Skowronek-bass, Tower of Power sax man Tom Politzer and backing vocalists. The concert will feature music from Etheredge's new album, Change Coming. Aireene Espiritu will open.

Advance tickets are available for $15 at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/324921. A limited number of tickets will be available at the door for $20.

Etheredge's debut--released on his own Vipaka Records--evokes the refined pop of artists such as Steely Dan, Michael McDonald, Boz Scaggs, and Todd Rundgren. Thoughtful, accessible, heartfelt, and witty, Change Coming features twelve original compositions meticulously produced by Etheredge. It's a keyboard-driven aesthetic with a full band tastefully complimenting Etheredge's luxurious playing. At opportune times, for dynamic punch, the players step out, most notably with some sizzling guitar solos and limber funk-guitar "chanks."

The album's title track is a bravely vulnerable statement of intent-an optimistic look at an uncertain future. "That's the theme song for my career change. I knew I could have a better life if I just trusted myself. The music was calling," Etheredge explains. The song opens tenderly bold, with Etheredge singing: I am finished with mediocrity/And I am ready for a change/I know I can be a better man/Do more than just get by, be the best I can/Something great is in the making/I'm ready to switch it up/Make it happen - no more faking.

Owdolatrous Press calls Etheredge's music "Smooth and sophisticated...His sweet tenor vocals and smooth jazzy style bring to mind Steely Dan and Boz Scaggs, but if his sound hearkens back to earlier times, his message is entirely forward-looking."

Indiemunity says, "Mark takes you on a little journey on which you'll discover a type of music you didn't yet know you had a love for."

Net proceeds from the event will benefit Metropolitan Community Church of San Francisco.

Mark Etheredge is a singer/songwriter and keyboardist who left a career in software development to pursue his musical passions. His new album features a full band including Two Tons of Fun's Jeanie Tracy on backing vocals. For more information, go to http://www.marketheredge.com

Aireene Espiritu's music is mainly influenced by listening to folklorist Alan Lomax's field recordings, and growing up listening to her uncles' Filipino folk guitar playing, Aireene Espiritu's music celebrates human beings being human, stories from ghosts and the living, and identities of cultures within cultures.
