An insider’s guide to Folsom Live

BY KRIS KEABLES

SPECIAL TO THE TELEGRAPH

F olsom Live is pump- ing up the music this year with two

big nights. Here’s an insid- er’s guide of tips for stress- free fun.

The Scoop – 30 bands, 10 stages and two nights. All the details are at fol- somlive.com. There’s lots of outdoor music until 10 p.m. After that, the music moves to inside venues.

a

schedule when you come in the gate and plan what acts you want to catch.

Tickets — Ticket pur- chasing has never been easier. Purchase tickets from your computer 24-7 (even in your underwear) at folsomlive.com. Ticket outlets are at all Dimple locations, Folsom Auto Mall, Beach Hut Deli on Blue Ravine, Folsom Chamber of Commerce and the Powerhouse Pub.

Insider’s tip — Save mon-

ey with ticket packages. Bring four of your friends and buy a Party Pack (available online only) for either evening. Can’t get enough live music? Take advantage of the “Festival Pack” which includes four tickets to both nights. Lodging — Consider making it a relaxing week- end by taking advantage of lodging packages

Insider’s

tip

Get

offered by Folsom hotels which include tickets, breakfast, and transporta- tion to and from the event (except for the Lake Natoma Inn which is within walking distance). Parking — Stress-free solutions mean using shuttles or Regional Tran- sit Light Rail. The historic district neighbors will thank you for not wander- ing around looking for an empty piece of real estate. There are four remote parking locations offering free shuttles including Wal-Mart, Briggs Ranch Center (behind Taco Bell) and if you’re coming from the “other side” of the riv- er, a shuttle will pick you up in the Folsom Pavil- ions (in front of Hoshall’s). For El Dorado Hills area fans, there will be a shut- tle from Hampton Inn and Suites, just off High- way 50. These shuttles will run from 4:30 p.m. until midnight. Plan to use the same shuttle pickup area to return to your vehicle. Regional Transit Light Rail is free with your ticket. So parking at the lots along Folsom Boulevard is easy. The last train leaves his- toric Folsom at 11 p.m.

Insider’s tip — The Fol-

som Sports Garage (locat- ed at Briggs Ranch) will be offering special party express shuttles from their

location. Be sure to check in advance with this establishment for details.

Beverage Tokens — Less

time in line, more time dancing. All beverage pur- chases within the venue (except inside bars and eateries) require tokens. Purchase tokens while waiting for the shuttle at the parking areas. When you need refills, there will be several token booths at the event (credit cards accepted).

Photos — While

enjoying the music and roaming the area, keep an eye out for the Photo Booth. It’s free, courtesy of Lakeside Church.

Food — Sutter Street has a wide variety of din- ing styles. So, enjoy dinner before the music by arriv- ing early (prior to 4 p.m.). After the event begins, “walking” food like pizza will be available. And fol- lowing the event, many restaurants will also offer choices for hungry fans.

Free

After party — For those

who need more. When the music starts to fade on the street, Live fans can enjoy music at Hacienda, Pow- erhouse Pub, Old Europe, Folsom Hotel, Samuel Horne’s and more. Your wrist band from the event will mean free admission (no cover) depending on venue capacity.

Folsom Live expands and draws big names

BY EILEEN WILSON

TELEGRAPH CORRESPONDENT

W ith 30 bands on 10 stages, Folsom Live 2011 is going to be

hotter than ever. In its eighth year, the event just gets bigger and better. “It’s a great event this year, and it will bring about 8,000 people to the historic district,” said Mary Ann McAlea with the Folsom Chamber of Commerce and the Fol- som Tourism Bureau. Businesses like Hacien- da, Powerhouse Pub, and Sutter Street Steakhouse will become show stages on Sept. 23 and 24, just in time to catch the final warm breezes of summer. While McAlea’s favorite part of Folsom Live is see- ing so many people enjoying two evenings of entertainment in her community, it’s the bands themselves that draw crowds to ticket sellers — crowds that are ready to rock. Big names are headlin- ing the event this year — performers like Eddie Money on Friday and Ronnie Milsap and Los Lobos on Saturday. But cover bands like Tainted Love and Stung will possibly prove to be as thrilling as the headlin- ers — bands that people can’t help but dance to. “This year we have an amazing blend — every genre is represented, from country to alternative, to rhythm and blues, bands that are well known local-

ly, like Tainted Love,” McAlea said. “Stung is huge in the Bay Area — we have an opportunity this year to appeal to a wide audience. And peo- ple love this event because they feel safe, they like the environ- ment, and that’s just great.” McAlea said bands are selected based on atten- dees’ input, and also on routing schedules for entertainment. “Who is coming through the area (is part of it),” she said. While the event’s pro- ceeds will go, in part, to

the Chamber of Com- merce to help fund a vari- ety of educational pro- grams for businesses, a large portion will go to this year’s charity partner, Hope Productions Foun- dation. “Hope oversees over 20 different charities that help children,” McAlea said. “And the funds that go to the chamber will help promote business interests in the Folsom community.” Hope has been a great partner and is helping put on the event this year. McAlea said that Hope staff has experience in large-scale festivities, and great connections for entertainment events as well. “We really wanted to elevate the level of enter- tainment this year,” McAlea said. Visitors can expect great entertainment, and good eats and drinks as well. The event will fea- ture plenty of food and beverages from local restaurants and business- es. The party has grown and organizers expect a sell-out crowd. They urge people to purchase tickets in advance, either online or at a variety of Folsom locations. In addition, organizers urge attendees to utilize shuttle services from vari- ous pick-up points. Check their website at folsomlive.com for more information.

Headliners make splash at Folsom Live

Grammy-winning acts coming to town

BY DON CHADDOCK

TELEGRAPH MANAGING EDITOR

P erformers such as Los Lobos, Ronnie Milsap and Eddie Money aren’t neces-

sarily names associated with the area, but this year’s Folsom Live music festival is about to change that perception. Those acts, as well at 27 oth- ers, are taking the spotlight Sept. 23-24 in Folsom’s two-day music fest. Organizers are expecting up to 8,000 people to attend over the two days. Money, who had a strings of hits in the late 1970s and mid- 1980s, is known for such popu- lar songs as “Two Tickets to Par- adise,” “Think I’m in Love,” “” and “Take Me Home Tonight.”

Money hasn’t stopped tour- ing. His concert in historic Fol- som is booked between con- certs in Texas, Connecticut and North Carolina. His most recent album is 2007’s “Wanna Go Back.” He performs at 9:20 p.m. Friday. Milsap recently released a new album, “Country Again,” in which he returns to his country roots. The singer has had 40 No. 1 hits and sold more than 35 million records. To his credit he also has seven Grammy Awards, four Academy of Country Music Awards and eight Music Associ- ation Awards. “I came to town to sing coun- try music,” Milsap said in a statement. “And when left to my own devices, around the house, it’s what I love to sing. It all dates back to my roots in North Carolina, and it’s in my blood.

… I’ve been very fortunate to have had a lot of successful records. … Now it’s time to make some more.” Born in the mountain town of Robbinsville, NC, Milsap was raised by his bluegrass-loving father and his grandparents in the unincorporated Meadow Branch community in western North Carolina. Each weekend, the struggling family gathered around a battery-powered radio and tuned in to the “Grand Ole Opry” on WSM, listening to Roy Acuff, Ernest Tubb and other greats. He attended a school for the blind in Raleigh, emerging with enhanced musical knowl- edge and a love of rock, pop and other non-Appalachian forms of music, he said. Milsap performs 8:45-10 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 24. The third headliner is three-

Los Lobos bandmates are Louie Perez on drums, guitars, percussion, vocals; Steve Berlin on saxophone, percussion, flute, midsax, harmonica, melodica; Cesar Rosas on vocals, guitar, mandolin; Con- rad Lozano on bass, guitarron, vocals; David Hidalgo on vocals, guitar, accordion, per- cussion, bass, keyboards, melodica, drums, violin, banjo; and Cougar Estrada on drums/percussion. A rare example of longevity in the music world, Los Lobos’ lineup has remained uninter- rupted since 1984, when saxo- phonist/keyboardist Steve Berlin joined original members Pérez, Hidalgo, Rosas and Lozano, each of whom had been there since the beginning in 1973.

Los Lobos, formed in 1973, is still making music. The band won three Grammy Awards and will perform Saturday, Sept. 24.

More than three decades have passed since Los Lobos released their first album, “Just Another Band from East L.A.” Los Lobos performs 7-8:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 24. This is the first year Folsom Live has garnered national acts.

“The ultimate goal for Folsom Live is to develop a music festi- val that will be an economic driver and showcase for the city,” said Mary Ann McAlea, with the Folsom Tourism Bureau and Chamber of Com- merce. “We are a good host city

for events and people are always looking for things to do.” She said getting headliners this year was a natural evolu- tion for the event. “In the growth strategy (for Folsom Live), the opportunity to bring headliners would grow

the event,” she said. “Folsom Live has always been about music.” She said reaction has been positive regarding the acts. “I think it tells people there is

a commitment to growing the

event,” McAlea said. “Getting people (to attend) from the region is huge. If they just drive by us on Highway 50, they don’t know what we have to offer.” Some changes to the layout

are also in store. The main stage, usually located at the rail- road turntable, will be moved to the Traders Lane parking lot. Dianne Rogers, with the chamber of commerce, said Folsom Live is one of the orga- nization’s biggest events. “Folsom Live and the Folsom Pro Rodeo are the two biggest fundraisers of the year,” Rogers said. In all, 30 bands are scheduled

to perform on 10 stages over the

two-night event. To learn more, visit folsom- live.com.

Stay and play thanks to lodging packages

BY ERIC LAUGHLIN

TELEGRAPH CORRESPONDENT

As with most big enter- tainment events these days, knowing how you’re getting home afterward and where you’re going to stay the night is a big part of the event’s success. Fortunately, Folsom Live’s planners worked with the community’s hotels and transportation organizations to come up with a plan that also saves you money. The city’s six finer hotels are offering lodging/ticket packages that basically translate into your event tickets being free. The packages start at $129 a night and come with a pair of tickets for either Friday or Saturday night.

All hotels are either within walking distance, or a quick train or shuttle ride away. All but one of the hotels are even offering a free breakfast. The Lake Natoma Inn is literally steps away from Sutter Street and is offer- ing packages from $139 to $169. The Hilton Garden Inn, along with the Lark- spur Landing Hotel, is located near the Folsom Premium Outlets and a short lightrail ride from Historic Folsom. The Mar- riott’s Courtyard and Res- idence Inn hotels, along with the Hampton Inn and Suites, are located off Bidwell Street near High- way 50 and are offering free shuttle service. As far as getting to and

from the big venue, you can hold on to your wallet unless you prefer a taxi cab. All of the event-spon- sored shuttles are free, as is Light Rail service on both nights, which is extending service from Folsom to 11 p.m. If it’s easier for you to park somewhere across town and take a shuttle in, free pick ups and drop offs will be made every 15-20 minutes at the Walmart parking lot, Briggs Ranch Plaza, Folsom Pavilions at Folsom Auburn Road near Greenback, and the Hampton Inn. For more information on shuttles or hotel pack- ages, check out the event’s official website at folsom- live.com.

Two-day event features ‘something for everyone’

BY ERIC LAUGHLIN

TELEGRAPH CORRESPONDENT

The music lineup for Folsom Live extends well beyond Grammy-winning artists like Eddie Money, Ronnie Milsap and Los Lobos. There are dozens of others set to grace the stage that carry their own style and following. If you’ve followed the visiting acts over the years at Folsom’s Powerhouse, you’ve likely heard of a popular 80s band by the name of “Tainted Love.” The band’s roots are in the San Francisco Bay Area, but their vibe from that ever-so-popular decade has paved the way for them to tour not only the nation, but the rest of the world. They are set to grace the Powerhouse Pub

Stage at 8:35 p.m. on Sat- urday night of the event. “They’re more about the music than the gim- micks,” said Tainted Love booking agent Daniel Swan. “They produce a very high energy show that has become popular, especially among young people.” Another popular North- ern California band set to play at the event is Lydia Pense and “Cold Blood.” Pense, who’s built a leg- endary following in her 40-plus years as a singer, has been the consistent centerpart to a band that’s played at San Francisco’s Fillmore more than any act other than the Grateful Dead. “She really is one of the

Folsom Live partners with local charity

BY EILEEN WILSON

TELEGRAPH CORRESPONDENT

A s the old saying goes, “If you give a man a fish, you feed him for

a day. If you teach a man to fish, you feed him for lifetime.” While overused, the quote provides an apt description for what hap- pens at Hope Productions Foundation. Hope Pro- ductions, a partner and recipient of Folsom Live 2011 proceeds, partners with area charities, pro- viding support and train- ing to help them better serve their target groups. “The foundation was started in 2008 by two local business men in the area who knew that non- profit organizations need- ed help. Not just financial help, but they needed training,” said Hope CEO Debbie Gabelich. Hope serves non-prof- its, primarily those that concentrate on children, whether it’s advocacy, arts or education, at-risk kids, illness and research, or other aspects that might affect youth. “We help the non-profit become more sustain- able,” Gabelich said. “We help the charities with business development, fund raising training and

strategic planning. We also have a CEO leader- ship training program.” With a small, hands-on staff, Hope assists non- profits in Sacramento, El Dorado and surrounding counties. Working with seven non-profit partners in an intensive three-year training program that include monthly meet- ings, leadership develop- ment and fundraising support are just some of the facets focused on by Hope. The non-profit also has 15 non-profit affiliates that receive fundraising support and abbreviated training. Hope’s program- ming is like a stepladder for non-profits in their goal to be sustainable. The scope of charities in which Hope partners are wide and varied. The Keaton Raphael Memorial, an organization that helps kids with cancer, and their families; People Reaching Out, a drug-free advocacy program that mentors stu- dents in five Sacramento area school districts; and Wind Youth Services, which assists youths find- ing a way out of homeless- ness, are just a few of the important charities that Hope trains and supports. Hope carefully selects their partner organiza-

tions. “We look for an active board or directors — how the organization is set up, is there a staff, will they have an available person for the program, and how many children they serve,” Gabelich said. Gabelich is thrilled to partner with the Folsom Chamber of Commerce this year with Folsom Live and knows that the event will help Hope continue to offer programs to area non-profits. “We’re thrilled to be part of this event — this will be great visibility for the foundation and will help us sustain our pro- grams for 2012,” she said. Mary Ann McAlea, with the chamber and Folsom Tourism Bureau, is excit- ed to partner with Hope this year, as well. “Hope has expertise in large scale event produc- tions, and they have great connections for enter- tainers. We like the mis- sion of Hope — to edu- cate boards and CEOs and this is a great opportunity for us to help their efforts. Bringing the two groups together will really pro- vide an opportunity to grow this event and reach more music fans,” McAlea said.
