The Rick Holmstrom Band

with special guests Nathan James and The Rhythm Scratchers

Doors open at 6:30pm for happy hour and the show starts at 7:30pm.

Oceanside Theatre Company kicks off its 2018 Music Series with two American blues treasures: The Rick Holmstrom Band and Nathan James and The Rhythm Scratchers. Holmstrom is a premier blues guitarist having worked with such musical legends as William Clarke, Jimmy Rogers, Billy Boy Arnold, R.L. Burnside, Johnny Dyer and Rod Piazza. Holmstrom is currently the bandleader for the great Mavis Staples and can be heard on her Grammy-winning album “You Are Not Alone.”

Internationally acclaimed blues guitarist and Oceanside resident Nathan James has a musical identity all his own with his handcrafted washboard guitar and mastery of the Piedmont fingerstyle. James and his trio, The Rhythm Scratchers, forge a distinct sound that ranges from acoustic blues of the ‘20s and ‘30s to soulful R&B.

All seats $25

A Celebration of the Music of Bob Dylan

BobFest is a celebration of the music of one of the greatest singer/songwriter/poets this country has yet produced.  BobFest features singer and guitarist Pat Guadagno, whose music was featured in the Award-winning Showtime series, Californication, and whom the New York Times has hailed as “a well-traveled troubadour with a remarkable repertoire.”  Now in its 21st year, BobFest has been selling out the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, New Jersey. The tradition is now coming to The Brooks.  Tickets go on sale this summer.
