The California Songbook
Tuesday, March 14, 2023
I’m thinking this will be a really good show! This era had some really great music! We’ll begin with an included buffet lunch at the Coyote Moon Grille and then head for the St. Cloud Paramount Theatre for The California Songbook, The California Songbook, a tribute to the sounds of The Mamas & The Papas, Joni Mitchell, Carpenters, Linda Ronstadt, The Eagles, Jefferson Airplane, Fleetwood Mac, & more. In the mid-’60s, the music business migrated from Tin Pan Alley and the Brill Building in New York City to Los Angeles, California. The Beatles, the British Invasion performers, and Motown artists dominated radio airwaves, but a new sound was brewing in Laurel Canyon. Folk, country, pop, mysticism, rock, and even show tunes blended together, and every record executive was on the lookout for that new folk/rock sound. And that’s just the beginning of the stories and sounds born in California.
