Music Motown Revue at Fenix

We can thank Joi for this suggestion!

Music at the FENIX in San Rafael.
Let's meet for drinks and/or dinner at 7pm. Show starts at 8pm.
$10 cover charge.

Will Russ Jr. bringing us a Sam Cooke, Ray Charles Revue

William has often been compared to some of the greatest soul singers for his unique interpretations and soulful delivery, such as Donny Hathaway, Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye, Luther Vandross, Peabo Bryson and Bill Withers.

With his positive attitude, energy and charming personality, William is destined to bring the audience to their feet in applause!

    Amen to everything in Alan's lines, and, yes, we should do it again, hopefully soon. Joi and Joyce, please get into action and make our lives pleasant. You seem to be knowing the secrets that lead to good life.
    And if speaking of good life, here might be one for the salsa entusiatics, and those who would like to be in the same category: on Sunday at 6 in Allegro, Emerywille, a 2 hours lesson to be followed by salsa party (8PM). Great music and atmosphere, good instructors, "live" audience, and all for $12...

    See You All,

    Let me be another person to thank Joi, and Joyce, for the best meet-up of the summer, MUSIC AT THE FENIX. Refreshing to be in a very clean, spacious night-club, (we weren't packed in ) cleanest restrooms, highest ceiling of any club in Marin Co. best sound system, best looking interior, expert service by wait staff. All this, and wonderful people to meet, plus Will Russ Jr. who is in a special class as an entertainer, born and raised to sing, (his bio. says) and between songs he educates you about the great Sam Cook, "Sam was Motown before there was Motown," says Will.

    Hi,
    Just in case you are unaware,.. let me enlighten you with some exciting information.
    We are about to experience perhaps the three most scintillating sequential evenings of music that Marin has encountered in the last 20 years.
    On Wed., Thu. and Friday of next week there are THREE killer music events:

    1. Kick-ass, rocking, danceable, electric blues with the knockout Fenix Band (all of the guys have a quality pedigree) - see link, below.

    2. An authentic rendition of the music in the style of the unequalled Sam Cooke and Marvin Gaye:........ simply THE best soul.

    3. The ultra-smooth, samba-Latin-funk-rock Fusion of Bautista to dance salsa and other latin beat dances, all night long.

    The unbelievable aspect is that all of this superb music will be performed at the same venue (the stunning FENIX club) on sequential days !!!!! It's truly unreal ! BRING YOUR SLEEPING BAG !!! :-) Cheers!
    Doug.
