Soil Before Silicon Glimpses of Our Agricultural Past

“Soil Before Silicon: Glimpses of our Agricultural Past” on January 24!! Celebrating the Valley’s Agricultural and Cultural Heritage The Saratoga Historical foundation will launch a series of three lectures on local history starting with “Soil Before Silicon: Glimpses of our Agricultural Past” by the Fruit Cocktail Club on January 24. The Fruit Cocktail Club will take a lighthearted look at films of Saratoga and the Santa Clara Valley when it was known as The Valley of Hearts Delight. The presentation includes clips from the 20s, 40s, and 60s showcasing locally shot orchard footage. These will be woven with some clips from newsreel, documentary, and corporate films over the decades to show the general change from agriculture to technology. Audience participation is encouraged so experiences of growing up, working, and living in the Santa Clara Valley are shared. Potluck will be at 6:30 PM and the film at 7:30 PM on Wednesday, January 24. If you participate in the potluck bring food to share, your own utensils and cups. Coffee or hot water for tea will be provided. The film will be free for members, $5.00 donation asked for nonmembers. The meeting will be held at the Saratoga Foothill Club at 20399 Park Place in Saratoga, CA. Come prepared to reminisce. For more information go to www.sartogahistory.com or call 408-867-4311.

Guarandinga Dance Party   Saturday Feb 17   $20/Advance, $25/Day of Show

Guarandinga Dance Party

Guarandinga’s signature blend of Latin AfroPop integrates hip-hop, rock and Venezuelan folklore with gritty East Bay funk over a solid foundation of Afro-Caribbean beats. Award-winning Singer/lyricist Rowan Jiménez and bassist/producer Jeremy Allen are joined by five remarkable musicians to create Guarandinga’s multidimensional music: vocalist Kenya Moses, drummer Brian Andres, guitarist Chris Carter, keyboard/synth player Cava Menzies, and electro trumpeter Henry Hung. They take inspiration from across the musical spectrum; their influences range from recognizable artists (Yerba Buena, Bomba Stereo, Anti Balas) to genres and eras that don’t initially appear to fit together (hip hop, alt-latin, rock, early electronica, and dancehall). It is this chemistry and Guarandinga’s Afro-Venezuelan roots that makes this band’s original music provocative and infectious. Their unique blend of seemingly disparate sounds would lead one to describe the band as defying categorization. Guarandinga is Oakland, California’s latest sonic awakening – their music creates the perfect platform for the Spanish & English wordplay of Jiménez’s soulful lyrics. Jimenez received notoriety as founder and lead vocalist for the Bay Area’s Latin alternative band OriXa, which received a California Music Award for “Outstanding Latin Album” and the ASCAP Latino Award for “Best Independent Group”. Featuring: Rowan Jiménez – vocals, percussion Jeremy Allen – bass, vocals, cuatro, percussion Kenya Moses – percussion, vocals Chris Carter – guitar Brian Andres – drums

When: Saturday Feb 17

Where: 2513 Blanding Ave Alameda CA
