NorCal acts featured at Solano County Fair

The Urban Bushmen Band will get Solano County Fairgoers moving to their driving rhythm and blues when they perform on the Bay Stage on Sunday, Aug. 7.

The 2011 Solano County Fair, running Wednesday through Sunday, features a full entertainment schedule, including performances and live music every day on the Bay Stage on the Fair’s main concourse. All concerts are free with paid fair admission.

Opening day features Orchestra La Fuerza Gigante, a high-energy group of Northern California musicians. Each member contributes flavor from his own country, including Puerto Rico, Panama, Ecuador, Mexico and the United States.

The Matty T Band performs rock the way it was meant to sound —bluesy, gutsy, with soul, and straight from the heart — on Thursday. Guitarist Matty Taynton says his influences range from Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan to Robert Cray and Eric Clapton. He has played in concert settings with George Thorogood, Creedence Clearwater, Savoy Brown, Cold Blood, War and John Cafferty.

Friday brings Mobility, a subdivision of the U.S. Air Force Band of the Golden West playing rock, jazz and blues favorites. Under the leadership of Tech. Sgt. Preston Keating, the band from Travis Air Force Base has performed throughout the West and at Oakland Raiders, San Francisco 49ers and the Oakland A’s games.

Also performing on Friday is McKenna Faith, a 16-year-old country music singer/songwriter from Ukiah. She grew up performing on the rodeo circuit, won the Ukiah Idol competition and was the people’s choice in the Rising Stars competition.

She just wrapped up a series of concerts promoting the release of her debut album, “Sugar & Spice,” recorded last October in Nashville.

Sunday brings the Urban Bushmen Band, a Northern California rhythm and blues group. Founded by young blues/funk guitarist Kenny Wilson, the Urban Bushmen Band covers classic blues, R&B and neo-soul.

The Solano County Fairgrounds are in Vallejo, just off Interstate 80. Admission is $8 for adults, $4 for seniors and children ages 6-12. Children 5 and under are free.

Carnival wristbands, good all day any one day, are $25.
