Rarely open to the public, the Golden Gate Yacht Club invites you
to join us for a special treat:

Acclaimed vocalist Deborah Winters
and the Peter Welker All-Star Band


Joining Deborah – Randy Vincent, a Bay Area legendary guitarist who has performed with Dizzy Gillespie, Bobby Hutcherson, and Joe Henderson. Chris Amberger on bass whose credits include touring and recording with  Art Blakey, Eddy Harris, Art Pepper, Rosemary Clooney, and George Shearing.  Akira Tana’s performing and recording associations include Lena Horne, Branford Marsalis, Arturo Sandoval, Charles Aznavour, Sonny Rollings and the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Steve Steinberg on tenor sax has performed with Natalie Cole, Mel Torme, The Temptations, Frank Sinatra Jr, and Aretha Franklin.  And finally, Peter Welker – producer, arranger, bandleader touring with legends Buddy Miles, Santana, Al Jarreau, Dr. John, Joe Henderson and Pete Escovido.

The final star is the venue! The Golden Gate Yacht Club achieved world wide fame with the partnership between Larry Ellison and the Club to win the America’s Cup in 2010. A beautiful and friendly venue…

Come have a cocktail or two, at our no-host bar and marvel at the sunset over the Bay while basking in the glow of some of the best jazz performers around.

On with KGO’s Brian Copeland…

Just because my first appearance as a guest on KGO was the year he was born? The 15 minute segment includes background info on The Cole Porter Society, our show at the Herbst Theater that took place on June 3, 2016, and a lot more. Enjoy! –Noah
