The California Roots Union Presents The Freightshakers & Gerry Gomez and The Damngivers - March 21st


The Freightshakers (Ameripolitan Music Awards Outlaw Group of the Year) & Gerry Gomez and The Damngivers

Saturday, March 21 at T. Boyles Tavern in Pasadena, CA. It's going to be a great night of roots and country music.

The Freightshakers

Modern day honkytonk heroes, Gethen Jenkins and The Freightshakers, deliver high octane classic country music with an outlaw stance. With David Gilliard on upright bass, Gary Brandin on pedal steel, Dale Daniel on drums and Jeremy Long on everything else, you’re already havin a good night, add the unparalleled baritone of lead singer Gethen Jenkins and they will have to kick you out at closin time! These boys take the myth making and truth telling that is outlaw country music to a higher level in a good ole honkytonk kinda way.

Gerry Gomez and The Damngivers

Damngivers is aptly named. They're a band of people who give a damn. Their songs groove with strong choruses, good hooks, and lyrics that are like folk rock meat and potatoes. Akin to Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, and singer-songwriters of previous generations that questioned the status quo, lead singer-songwriter Gerry Gomez writes songs that entertain, observe, probe, and above all, rock.

At first listen, you'll hear a quilt of American music – parts Country Rock, Alt-Country, Roots Rock and Folk with a nod to early Wilco, the Band, Black Crowes, the Faces and the Blasters. L.A. born and residing, Gomez molds his influences into songs that are full of hope and irony, and driven home with his rootsy vocals. Supported with pedal steel guitar and Hammond B3 organs, top caliber musicians and producers, Damngivers songs are full of rock-n-soul.

T. Boyle’s Tavern is located at 37 N. Catalina Avenue in Pasadena. 

It is behind the Academy 6 Cinemas, and just to the east of the Ice House Comedy Club.  There is no entrance or signage on Catalina Ave. 

There is a parking structure located on the west side of Mentor Avenue, in between Union Street and Colorado Boulevard. Mentor is a one way southbound street, so you must enter Mentor Avenue from the north to enter the structure.

Additionally, there is free street parking after 6:00pm; as well as another pay lot with limited space just north of the venue, across Rhodes Alley.
