It’s time once again when The Freight & Salvage is invaded by the music of British rock from the 1960’s. ‘THE FREIGHT GOES BRITISH REVUE #7 – THE WHO’ Every year since 2009 BIN Productions has hosted a show honoring one of Britain’s iconic rock groups, performed by current & former students of Chris Solberg. This year the honor goes to the bombastic group THE WHO. After much study & lots of rehearsing, each group will play at least three WHO tunes, plus songs of their own choosing.

 

Headlining this year’s show is THE BLONDIES. They started out in 2010 as the opening act, and have matured into a top billing local Bay Area group performing excellent original indie rock. Amazing musicians and talented performers…every show by The Blondies is a musical adventure! "The Blondies have an old-school vibe that not only makes them a pleasure to listen to but a group to glorify for their talent. Sweet Nothings has all the ingredients that make music exhilarating."...The Equal Ground - Reviews, August 2014

You want British rock mixed with American Blues? The BBC (BERKELEY BLUES COALITION) is your ticket to rock. This is BBC’s 3rd Freight Goes British, and they get the dancers up early and often! Performing music from Led Zepplin, Cream, The Spencer Davis Group, David Bowie, John Mayer and more, they get the house rockin’ every time. Featuring The Freight’s own Celeste Kopel on vocals and keyboard, with Nathan Phillips (lead guitar/vocals), Barry Weinstein (rhythm guitar/vocals), Kit Newkirk (bass/vocals), and the very solid JV Fowler on drums. Always enjoyable

The newest members to join the FGBR stable are THE LILLIES. Just formed lately, this will be their first show at The Freight, and we expect they’ll be coming back many times with the amount of talent this band has. The opening act always has the toughest spot, but this group will impress folks with the amazing ability to rock at such a young age. Three gals and two guys provide all the punch needed to bring the dancers to their feet. The Lillies features Kira Gelbaugh (bass/rhythm guitar), Sophie Kaufman (bass/rhythm guitar), Daniel Pliskin (vocals), John David Klopotowski (drums/vocals), and Lily Dawson (lead guitar). It will be awesome!

 

Lastly…don’t forget our amazing FINALE BAND…a sum of ALL the musicians performing this evening…30 or more performers take the stage in a rock-orchestra of epic proportions, closing the show with rousing renditions of the biggest hits & memorable songs…this time by THE WHO! Please come support young talent and share in their adventure performing on a big stage in the nicest venue in the East Bay!
