Announcing Lisa Marie Presley at Uptown Theatre Napa on 8/30/13


Napa, CA (PRWEB) July 26, 2013

With all the hoopla that has surrounded her, its easy to forget that Lisa Marie Presley is at heart a simple Southern girl whose earliest musical memories are of obsessively listening to 45s in her bedroom at Graceland and of her dad catching her singing into a hairbrush in front of a mirror at the age of three. The Memphis-born Presley reclaims those roots on her new album Storm & Grace an Americana-inspired showcase for her songwriting talent and smoldering alto voice.

Produced with elegant restraint by 12-time Grammy Award-winner T Bone Burnett, Storm & Grace is a marked departure from Presleys previous albums, 2003s gold-certified To Whom It May Concern and 2005s Now What, which both debuted in the Top 10 on Billboards Top 200 chart, I love the songs, but I think I was hiding behind a lot of sonic layers because it was scary to go out there, Presley says. Its easier to bury yourself in the noise so you dont stand out. This album is a lot more stripped-down and naked, both musically and lyrically.

Tickets for Lisa Marie Presley plus The Deadlies are $ 30. They are on sale now and can be purchased through the theatre website at http://www.uptowntheatrenapa.com, at Ticketmaster (http://www.ticketmaster.com) or at the theatre box office (please call 707.259.0123 ext. 6 for hours).

Squeeze at Napas Uptown Theatre on 4/18


Napa, CA (PRWEB) March 30, 2012

Over 35 years later, with their legacy intact and as vital as it has ever been, Squeeze are still touring and reminding fans worldwide just why they have left such an indelible impression on the music scene. They are known for such hits as Tempted, Pulling Mussels From A Shell, Cool For Cats and Goodbye Girl. Dont miss Squeeze plus Frontline at the Uptown Theatre Napa on Wednesday, April 18, 2012. Doors open at 7:00pm, show starts at 8:00pm.

As teenagers on the South London scene, Squeeze setting out their stall early on by facetiously naming themselves after a poorly-received Velvet Underground album, and at the time also comprised of Jools Holland on keys, Harry Kakouli on bass and Paul Gunn on drums – became a fixture of the burgeoning New Wave movement. When Gilson Lavis replaced Gunn on drums everything seemed to fall into place, and word of mouth soon spread about the band – ironically, it was none other than Velvet Underground man John Cale who caught wind in 1977 and offered to produce their debut EP Packet Of Three and much of the ensuing album.

Yet it was second album Cool For Cats, released in 1979, which cemented their place as one of Britains most important young bands. Featuring the classic single Up The Junction as well as the title track, it was many listeners first introduction to the witty kitchen-sink lyricism and new-wave guitar music that has become the bands trademark. With albums Argybargy and the Elvis Costello-produced East Side Story, Squeeze even started to make waves across the pond, although in 1980 former Roxy Music and Ace – and future Mike + The Mechanics man Paul Carrack would replace Jools Holland, going on to lend his unmistakeable vocals to the smash hit Tempted.

Tickets for Squeeze are $ 55. They are on sale now and can be purchased through the theatre website at http://www.uptowntheatrenapa.com, at Ticketmaster (http://www.ticketmaster.com) or at the theatre box office (please call 707.259.0123 ext. 6 for hours).
