The terms “supergroup”” might be overused in music but no one can dispute the amazing collection of players who will perform on Sunday, Jan.15, at Kirkwood Mountain Resort.
Eric McFadden and Queen delphine, who recently played at the 7800 Bar & Grill, will return to the restaurant on Martin Luther King holiday weekend, along with Angelo Moore, Thomas Pridgen and 13-year-old drum prodigy JD Beck. It’s billed as the 7800 MLK Day Celebration All Star Band.
Using the initials of their first names, Thomas Pridgen, Eric McFadden and Norwood Fisher make up the band T.E.N., which is regarded as a supergroup.
Moore, of course, is the flamboyant frontman for Fishbone. Pridgen formerly played with The Mars Volta and Suicidal Tendencies. The Grammy Award winner also played with the Sacramento band Trash Talk, and now has a group named the Giraffe Tongue Orchestra. JD Beck is a 13-year-old drum prodigy from Dallas.
McFadden is involved with numerous other projects, including Tasty Face and the Eric McFadden Trio, which both include Queen delphine, a charismatic and dynamic singer. He often plays mandolin with Anders Osborne’s band. McFadden also has played with George Clinton and P-Funk, Stockholm Syndrome and Eric Burdon and the Animals.
Backed by the Sacramento band Ideateam, McFadden and queen Delphine had a rousing show in early December at the 7800 Bar & Grill. The music was a combination of funk, punk and psychedelic blues. The versatile McFadden also is an accomplished jazz and flamenco guitarist.
The Jan. 15 show will start at 9:30 p.m. There will be a sliding cover charge of $0 to $10.
Beck will host an open mic jam at 6 p.m. at the KCA with McFadden and Delphine. Bring an instrument.
