West Coast favorites and national touring act Miss Lonely Hearts will light up The Palms Playhouse with honky-tonkin‘ outlaw country on Friday, May 25. The show will start at 8 p.m. One-man band Doc Tari will open. The dance floor will be open.

Fronted by Winters’ talented native son Wyatt Hesemeyer, Miss Lonely Hearts’ music leaps from the energetic intersection of outlaw country, honky-tonk, rockabilly and rock ‘n’ roll.

In addition to Hesemeyer, who takes lead singing and songwriting duties as well as stepping out with guitar and harmonica, the Santa Cruz-based band features Mischa Gasch on upright bass, Patrick O’Connor on drums and Sean Carscadden on guitar. Keith Cary will join on fiddle and lap steel.

Miss Lonely Hearts’ sound and original songs, combined with their deep regard for American roots music and insatiable urge to innovate, have earned them featured interviews on radio and television, and a spot on the bill with choice acts such as Wayne “The Train” Hancock, Deke Dickerson, Eilen Jewell, The Devil Makes Three, The Brothers Comatose and Petunia and the Vipers. They were nominated for Outlaw Group of the Year at the 2017 Ameripolitan Music Awards.

Miss Lonely Hearts has released four CDs, the most recent of which (2016‘s “Lost Highway”) climbed to the No. 4 spot of the Roots Music Report’s outlaw country album charts in April of last year – right above “The Essential Johnny Cash.”

Opening the show is Doc Tari, a one-man band playing traditional American music as well as original compositions. Doc Tari (Tarek Isham) traces the history of American music with acoustic and electric guitars, harmonica, foot-pedal drums and vocals.

Tickets for Miss Lonely Hearts’ May 25 show at The Palms Playhouse (13 Main Street in Winters) are $18 and are available at Pacific Ace Hardware in Winters, Armadillo Music in Davis, Davids’ Broken Note in Woodland, online via The Palms’ website and Eventbrite and at the door if not sold out.
