    John CalvertB&N Fountain, 7-9pm

    Folk, Classical and World Music

    Calvert attributes much of his success to his perennial experience at the world famous Berklee College of Music. His rich formal training artfully blends into an inspiring and original sound. Though his music is difficult to categorize, John likes to classify it as simply guitar music. He performs frequently at a variety of venues throughout the Phoenix area, both solo and in groups such as Radiant Sky.

    John’s down-to-earth attitude, combined with outstanding musical technique, continues to delight audiences. Whether performing for a small intimate group or for a large-capacity setting, John Calvert is guaranteed to deliver a most memorable listening experience!

    Think HorsesDistrict Stage, 7-10pm

    Original Alternative and Cover Band
    In ancient Greece, young medical students were exhorted to think horses, not zebras, when they heard the sound of hoofbeats outside; they were encouraged to resist the temptation to second-guess the obvious. A literal endorsement of simplicity. Summer flowers. The sound of a far-off train. One, two, three, just like that, simplicity in music is elusive. Sublime. In the end it's best to just listen. Isn’t it?

    Think Horses are: León - voice & guitar, Theo Belledin - keys and saxes, Adam Clark - batterie, Emilio Caruso - drums, John Chapman - contrabass

    With Anthony Bianchi’s passionate bluesy vocals, Nick Sterling’s multi-faceted musical genius, Fil Lopez’s note-for-note duplication of John Bonham’s live performance, Harrison Walter’s ability to emulate Jimmy Page, and Nick Marshall’s solid bass rhythm, Song Remains the Same transports the audience back in time.
