From page A9 | October 03, 2012 |

Get ready for some terrific music for a great cause.

It’s all happening at the third annual Tunes for Trees benefit concert for the Woodland Tree Foundation, set for Saturday, Oct. 6, beginning at 5:30 p.m. on the grounds of the Gibson House Museum, 512 Gibson Road in Woodland.

This year’s concert features the popular Red Rose Ranch Band and the Hey Nows!. The family event includes food and drink and a silent auction offering a chance to take home gift baskets with local wines and other goodies.

Red Rose Ranch Band plays country and swing music with a vintage flavor, including songs by such popular artists as Hank Williams, Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys, Marty Robbins, Louis Jordan, The Mills Brothers and Bing Crosby.

The band’s songbook includes ballads, classic country, up-tempo two-steps and Western swing tunes, enriched with the distinctive sound of the pedal steel guitar.

Band members are Kathy Elzey on vocals, ukulele and percussion; Ray Elzey on vocals, guitar and pedal steel guitar; Louie Lewis on vocals and guitar, and Phil Giebel on vocals and bass guitar.

The Hey-Nows! acoustic trio merges a power-pop attitude with an Americana sensibility to create an engaging style. They play a combination of originals and cover tunes, mixing gems by the likes of Big Star, the Old ‘97s and The Band with well-known classics from Joe Jackson, Counting Crows and the Beatles.

Band members are Lee Milhous on six- and 12-string guitars, Roger Trott on mandolin and guitar and Reid Scott Anderson on percussion. Milhouse, Trott and Anderson are all veterans of the Northern California rock music scene.

The Woodland Tree Foundation is a nonprofit, volunteer-run organization that plants and cares for trees in the Woodland area. Since its founding in 2000, Woodland Tree Foundation volunteers have planted and cared for nearly 3,000 trees.

Funds raised by Tunes for Trees will help support the planting and care of trees in the community.

Tickets are $15 available online at www.woodlandtree.org or at the door.
