Sacramento-based quintet The Gold Souls and Davis-based band The Midnight Dip will bring funk, soul and blues to The Palms Playhouse (13 Main St., Winters) on Thursday, Feb. 14 for a special Valentine’s Day dance show. Tickets for the 8 p.m. show are $20 ($16 with student ID). The Gold Souls bring the driving grooves of funk, the rich textures of soul, and the compelling storytelling of the blues to the Northern California scene and beyond. Drawing from a variety of influences and experiences, they deliver compelling lyrics and fresh arrangements over a vintage sound. They produce innovative original music that rings true to the idioms that inspire them. Led by the dynamic Juniper Waller (daughter of noted bluegrass bandleader Kathy Kallick), the group is made of young talent hailing from the Bay Area and Sacramento region. In addition to Waller, the line up is guitarist Matt Hevesh, keyboardist Alex Severson, drummer Billy D. Thompson and bassist Jace Dorn.   The group burst onto the Sacramento music scene in early 2017 and is swiftly becoming one of the most promising new talents in the area. Apple Music’s Blues Hot Tracks featured their first single, 2017’s “Nobody.” The band released a full-length album, “Good To Feel,” in June, and will release their next single, “True Blue,” on Feb. 12. The Gold Souls played the prestigious Concerts in the Park series in downtown Sacramento this past summer. The Midnight Dip is a Davis-based soul band with a twist, taking inspiration from jazz, swing, funk and rock. The 5-piece band is led by sassy and soulful singer, songwriter and keyboardist Liz Kat, who started The Midnight Dip in part to counter a lack of female representation in the local music scene. In addition to Kat, the group includes keyboardist and backing vocalist Kim Nguyen, bassist Alex Rieff, guitarist Josh Wisterman and drummer Jim Frink. The band debuted their first EP, “i hear voices,” in September. The five tracks range from jazz to polka to funk, each with powerful emotional messages to inspire people to persevere. Like their live shows, the music is sweet and salty, with sultry tunes and danceable beats. The dance floor will be open, and there will be special offerings available at the bar. Tickets 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. blank blank For more information, visit, and  ]]>
