Event

Misner & Smith, Maurice Tani
An evening of great harmonies, clever and poignant original songs and strong & varied lead vocals, as two of the Bay Areas great duos (Maurice will be joined by Mike Anderson on bass) perform the first in a series of concerts honoring Marlene Aron.
 
Misner & Smiths music is a combination of soaring vocal harmonies, tight instrumental arrangements, and story-filled, poetic songwriting, adding up to some of the most electrifying music on the scene today. The bands sound harkens back to the bedrock of American rock & folk, but the diversity of styles and genres are one of the things that set M&S apart. They can shake the walls like a freight train and then quiet the room to a whisper in a single song.

With two singers who could easily lead a band independently, Sam and Megan sing with one voice, with music that captures longing and belonging in the same moment. Their vocal blend, lyrical potency, and diverse songwriting make this duo one of the most unique and beloved bands around. The award-winning original songs range from folk to rock to Americana to country, but essentially are something all their own, defined by the stories that each song tells.

Misner & Smith create an extraordinarily full sound for only two people, and tour extensively both in the U.S. and overseas. Headlining regularly at venues such as the Freight & Salvage, and the Palms Playhouse, they have also appeared at The Kate Wolf Music Festival, San Francisco Folk Festival, and can be heard on radio dials all over the world.


Singer-songwiter Maurice Tani will be celebrating the release of his eighth album -his second on the Little Village label, THIS IS IT! recorded live at Berkeley's Freight & Salvage this past summer.

Known for his wry/rye-to-romantic songwriting, agile guitar style and expressive singing, Tanis particular flavor of Americana is a broad spectrum tincture of influences to cure what ails you. While rooted (at times distantly) in country music, his writing is centered on an urban-western perspective; short musical narratives of life on the left coast; a sort of cinema for the blind.
I was actually blown away. Maurice Tani writes songs that sound at once familiar, ethereal and beautiful.  songwriters songwriter with reoccurring themes and his own life experiences, a mournful world critics to date have rushed to categorize as country music. -Robert Sproul, No Depression Magazine

*Marlene Aron, an indispensable part of our SF Live Arts family for decades was sadly struck and killed while walking in a San Francisco crosswalk last Fall. We wish to thank The East Bay Community Foundation and Hillary Perkins for helping to fund these concerts in her honor.
