It’s A Beautiful Day, featuring David LaFlamme’s trademark violin and time-tested songs, formed in San Francisco in 1967 during the Summer of Love. On Friday, Sept. 27, at 8:30 p.m. It’s A Beautiful Day will return to The Palms Playhouse, 13 Main St. in Winters. Tickets are $20.
It’s A Beautiful Day is most famous for its song “White Bird,” a ballad that stood out not only for its memorable vocal melody and “seize the day” message, but also for front man LaFlamme’s slow-burning violin solo. Multiple albums were laced with classic cuts such as “Hot Summer Day,” “Bombay Calling,” “Girl With No Eyes,” “Wasted Union Blues,” “Time Is,” “Dolphins,” “Misery Loves Company” and many more.
Today, the band performs the classic music of It’s A Beautiful Day along with newer material, moving effortlessly from an almost folksy sound to ethereal jazz to psychedelic to straight on rock ‘n’ roll, performing selections from three new CDs and several previous albums.

The show is enhanced with LaFlamme’s delightful reminiscing of the San Francisco Summer of Love Days and 40-plus years of performing.

The band consists of David LaFlamme (violin and vocals), Linda LaFlamme (vocals), Val Fuentes (drums), 28-year-veteran Toby Gray (bass), Rob Espinosa (guitar) and Gary Thomas (keyboards).

Tickets are available at Armadillo Music in Davis, Watermelon Music in Woodland, Pacific Ace Hardware in Winters and at the door if not sold out. For more information, visit palmsplayhouse.com or roadhogs.net/laflamme.
