The Kyle Rowland Band returns to grace the stage of the 12th annual Blues Harvest on Friday, Nov. 1, at the Heidrick Ag History Center, 1962 Hays Lane in Woodland. Fueling his red-hot blues will be riffs by special guest Barry “the Fish” Melton.

The event is organized by Friends of Adult Day Health Care as a benefit for the Yolo Adult Day Health Center, and features a gourmet buffet dinner and both live and silent auctions. The live auction will be orchestrated by auctioneer Walter Dahl. Highlights include a Kauai vacation, a Las Vegas getaway, a chance to meet Jay Leno and VIP tickets to one of his last live performances on the “Tonight Show,” and a beer-tasting with noted beer authority Charlie Bamforth.

The Best of Blues Backroad Blues named Rowland Best its Prodigy Musician in 2011. He also was honored as Blues Harmonica Player of the Year and Blues New Artist of the Year (2009) at the West Coast Blues Hall of Fame Show.

Rowland has played with blues artists such as James Cotton, Norton Buffalo, Jerry Martini (founding member of Sly & The Family Stone, and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee), Frankie Lee, Nick Gravenites and Charlie Musselwhite.

The evening’s entertainment also includes the Blue Tones performing selections from the Great American Songbook. Rounding out the music lineup will be Cat Austin and Matthew Harrel, with Rob Gonzales.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $50, available at the Avid Reader Active, 605 Second St. in Davis; Watermelon Music, 527 Main St. in Woodland; and the Yolo Adult Day Health Center, 20 N. Cottonwood St. in Woodland.
