Maurice Tani to help celebrate 10th anniversary of Thursday Live!

Davis Odd Fellows Thursday Live! will celebrate its 10th anniversary on Feb. 6 by welcoming Bay Area singer-songwriter Maurice Tani as the featured performer at 7:30 p.m. at the hall, 415 Second St. in downtown Davis. Doors open at 7 p.m.

365体育官网San Francisco’s Tani has been a fixture on the local alt-country scene for more than a decade with his band 77 El Deora, and he previously sang and played guitar for the seminal Motown-style party bands Zasu Pitts Memorial Orchestra and Big Bang Beat.

The San Francisco Chronicle has praised his “twangy modern country sound” and called his songs “wry yet romantic, tender but aggressive.”

Known for his agile guitar style and expressive singing, Tani’s flavor of music draws on a wide variety of influences, blending Americana, blues and country. While rooted (at times distantly) in country music, his writing is centered on an urban-western perspective — short musical narratives of life on the left coast.

365体育官网“I was blown away! Maurice Tani writes songs that sound at once familiar, ethereal and beautiful. A songwriter’s songwriter with reoccurring themes of his own life experiences,” said Robert Sproul of No Depression Magazine.

Thursday Live! is sponsored by the Davis Odd Fellows Music Committee with support from KDRT radio. It’s a continuous music series that happens the first Thursday of most months. Shows are free but donations are encouraged to support the musicians.
