Front Street goes country with Trash Bash
Front Street in downtown Rocklin will be transformed into a hip country setting, complete with live music, food, beer and wine on Saturday.
Headlining at this year’s Trash Bash, scheduled from 7 to 9 p.m., will be Attwater.
The Sacramento-based country band signed with the independent production company and label, Twenty Ten Music in December of 2010.
Erika Attwater and Jonathan Richards, the songwriting team and principal members behind the band, got their start in a back room with nothing more than a guitar, a pad of paper and the simple desire to make good, honest music.
After writing their first three songs, the duo decided to try them out on the Sacramento open mic scene.
To their surprise, the audience response was as overwhelmingly positive and Attwater was born.
Their music is a unique combination of modern country, classic rock ala Fleetwood Mac, bluegrass flavors, and the influence of singer-songwriter greats like Patty Griffin.
A chicken and tri-tip dinner will be served, compliments of the barbecue chefs from Recology, along with an array of dishes from Randy Peters Catering & Event Planning.
The Rocklin Area Chamber of Commerce is once again partnering with Recology Auburn Placer, South Placer Rotary Club and Rocklin Educational Excellence Foundation (REEF) in hosting this event in support of Rocklin nonprofits.
Proceeds will be shared by area nonprofits.
REEF, which is tasked with promoting arts, sciences, technology and enrichment opportunities for all Rocklin public school students, will benefit from the gift card raffle.
The South Placer Rotary Club, a service organization that contributes to the Rocklin community in a variety of ways, including offering college scholarships to local students, taking underprivileged kids fishing, improving Rocklin’s parks and providing grants to other non-profit organizations, will be the recipients of the proceeds from the beer and wine sales.
Guests are encouraged to break out their best denim and diamond attire for this fun, country affair.
No one under 21 will be admitted and ID will be required.
Cost is $25 pre person or $40 per couple.
Written reservations are requested either via fax to (916) 624-5743 or online at www.RocklinChamber.com by 5 p.m. today.
