An Evening of the Rock n Roll and Spoken Word of Stephen Kalinich-The Beach Boys' Poet of Peace Featuring Rob Bonfiglio, Paul Zollo, Neil Rosengarden, and special guest, Carnie Wilson.
This is a rare opportunity to honor poet, songwriter, visual artist, performance artist and spiritual teacher, Stephen Kalinich. Since the 1950s, he has been committed to poems and songs that promote peace in the world. His songs have been recorded by Brian and Dennis Wilson, Paul McCartney, Jon Tiven, and P.F. Sloan. His most recent collaboration, 4 Songs, with Neil Rosengarden shows a lyrical artist at the peak of his creativity. The show will include some of the best rock n roll you'll hear from such a prolific poet.
Band leader and solo artist, Rob Bonfiglio will be bringing his own music and the rock n roll that Kalinich has recorded over the years. This will not be a show of only spoken word. It will be a concert filled with music, harmonies, and the words of a great modern poet, Stephen Kalinich.
Rob Bonfiglio brings years as a guitarist, instrumentalist, and solo singer-songwriter to the show premiering songs from his soon-to-be-released album, Trouble Again. After years as the band leader for Wilson Phillips and playing multiple Roadhouse shows as lead guitarist, this is a chance to hear Rob's own brand of rock n roll crafted with excellent musicianship and imaginative songwriting.
Guest artists include Paul Zollo, Neil Rosengarden, Beach Boy drummer, Bobby Figueroa and our very special guest, Carnie Wilson of Wilson Phillips.
