Vintage Fare News

Second Time Around Released!

This is our second CD. Like Forever Young, it gives you more songs than you'd expect.  Forever Young has 16 songs; Second Time Around has 19!

You'll want to move fast because sales of Second Time Around are brisk and we're nearly sold out of Forever Young's first pressing.

Unfortunately, our CDs are generally only available at our shows, but watch for the Vintage Fare web store coming soon.

Meanwhile, you can order CDs by calling our manager, Alan Klien, at (916) 204-6909 and making arrangements for payment and delivery.

Another Year at the California State Fair!

Once again, the State Fair engaged Vintage Fare to provide entertainment on several dates, and on both the Main Stage and the Promenade Stage.

We were blessed with milder weather this year, and the sound engineers were at the top of their game. Many thanks, Keith and company.

The Carmichael Music Scene Grows

Vintage Fare has the honor of being the first band to provide live entertainment at Carmichael's Lido Bar & Grill. Over the past couple of years, many more musicians have come to check us out, and a number of them are now performing regularly at The Lido. We've met some of the most amazing people through this connection.

The "scene" has grown to the point that you can hear good music pretty much any Thursday, Friday or Saturday evenings.

Thank you Shawna for making The Lido a "home" for Vintage Fare and other great talent.

Vintage Fare Interviewed by Carmichael Patch

Carmichael Patch is a fairly new web resource for the Carmichael commuity. It's a very tastefully-done web site with great coverage of Carmichael news.

At one of our recent rehearsals, we were visited by Patch reporter Raina LeGarreta, and videographer Tony SingingEagle. Early into the interview it was clear that LeGarreta knows her muisic, and had done her homework.

You can read the resulting article, and watch a video of Vintage Fare rehearsing while being interviewed and filmed at this link: Vintage Fare Interviewed

10th Annual Taste of Carmichael - Vintage Fare to Perform Again -Date To Be Announced

Last year we had the pleasure of performing at the 8th annual Taste of Charmichael, a fantastic community event sponsored by Carmicael Kiwanis - with proceeds going to worthy causes: Charity for Chidren, Youth and Community concerts.

We're honored to be invited back to perform this year as well.

 Come on out; enjoy great food and libations; listen to some great music.

Back on Shedule

Last fall and winter, a number of circumstances beyone our control forced us to juggle out calendars and play on dates different than our usual schedule.

We're pleased to announce that all of that is behind us and that we've resumed our regular schedule: The first Saturday of each month, at the Lido Bar and Grill, 6 PM to 8PM

Back to the Studio!

After the warm and positive response to our first CD, "Forever Young," Vintage Fare is slated to begin recording our second CD this April.  No release date has been even thought about. "When it's right" is probably the most precise ETA we can offer.


2018 is another good year for Vintage Fare and, so far, we've played some fun gigs, with more to come.

We also began performing at Bella Bru in Carmichael, a great coffee shop & restaurant that includes the Luna Lounge. We're generally there the first saturday of each month.

Check our calendar for upcoming events.
