Official CD Release Show for our new album, Rollin’ Train. We have been planning this for some time, and we are ecstatic to share this event with you. It is going to be big! We will be performing at our favorite local venue, Back to The Grind, in Downtown Riverside, and the place is going to be packed.
You will be able to purchase our new full-length album, Rollin’ Train, as well as 11x14 inch posters commemorating Rollin’ Train, and even handmade notepads with covers representing the artwork on the Rollin’ Train posters. And if you have not got one yet, there will even be Rollin’ Train buttons that you can pin all over yourself. All of our merch is handmade with love and care by Black Bear himself. And now, part of our merch sales go to fund charity including a child we sponsor in Arkansas through Children International named Zamiah, and The Corona/Norco Settlement House.
We are thrilled to announce The Autumn Sisters’ return to the stage. Though the Autumn Sisters’ glorious harmonies can be heard time and time again on every song on the Rollin’ Train album, it is rare to catch them performing together live with the entire lineup. Each of the Autumn Sisters are solo recording artists as well as Folk Singer-songwriters. You can hear Blue Fox’s (Danielle Miller) music @blueeyedgrass.bandcamp.com, and you can hear Black Rabbit’s (Geneva Miller) music @genevamiller.bandcamp.com.
Another noteworthy part of Saturday’s event is that the great Mac Balzac of Smokin Music Productions is going to be providing sound for our CD Release Show. Like Einstein at the Chalkboard, Mac is a master at the mixing board, solving sound equations and redefining the universe as we know it. If you saw us before and thought, "man, they sound really good tonight, even better than usual', it was probably because Mac was doing sound that night. Just another reason why you really don't want to miss this show!
This past weekend, Black Bear and Black Rabbit (Geneva Miller) spent some time in the studio working on the second track of Geneva’s new album, “Wake O’ Heavy Heart”. The song is called “Darling Dear”, and it features beautiful but ominous piano chords, and of course, Geneva’s ghostly voice, and there are even some haunting harmonies too. Show her some love, go to her page: genevamiller.bandcamp.com.
TheSettlement House. Founded in 1912, the mission of the Settlement House is “to be a major source of compassion, information, and emergency support for people in the Corona-Norco community facing personal crises that threaten their stability, safety, housing and health.”
Another way we can all help our community is to buy locally grown food and support our local farmers. Every Saturday, Black Bear rides his bike down to the Farmer’s Market with his dad and often with other members of The Cheyenne Autumn Band as well. “The Corona Certified Farmers Market is open every Saturday, rain or shine, from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm Located off of the 91 freeway at N. Main St. in the Main St. Marketplace (across from the Fender Museum) it is the perfect place for you to do your Saturday morning shopping to support corona as well as the local farming community!”
