This iconic performer has received over 60 industry awards, with countless charting singles, including 20 No.1 hits such as “Mama He’s Crazy,” “Why Not me,” and “Grandpa, (Tell Me ‘Bout The Good Ole Days).” Wynonna and her band The Big Noise, led by her husband/drummer/producer, Cactus Moser, released their debut full-length album in February 2016 via Curb Records to critical acclaim. Wynonna has described the new sound as “vintage yet modern” and a “return to the well.” It’s a rootsy work encompassing country, Americana, blues, soul and rock. The album features special guests Derek Trucks, Jason Isbell, Susan Tedeschi and Timothy B. Schmit. NPR’s Ann Powers noted that, “With her tight band behind her after touring together for several years, she just sounds like she’s home…You can just feel the grin on her face.”

It Takes A Village: A Comedy Showcase
Shine – Join us for an evening of standup comedy, community, and celebration! The show will feature four graduates of the Creation District’s Stand Up Comedy 101 class taught by illustrious comedy legend, Keith Lowell Jensen. Students will also be joined by a few local comedy big shots including, Becky Lynn, Shahera Hyatt, and Keith Lowell Jensen himself! Doors 7:30PM // Show 8:00PM // Free (with avid encouragement to purchase drinks and support Shine Café!) Creation District Features Include: Blake Smith: A natural to the world of standup comedy, Blake was in love with the microphone at first sight. You will quickly find that the love affair is mutual when you see Blake charm the audience with each new sentence that comes out of his mouth. Blake has been running head first and unafraid into the world of comedy and it has paid off in the brilliant and nuanced details of his work. Now is your chance to meet one of the future writers of SNL! Jessie Deville: Jessie Jordan Morones is an experienced and talented artist in music making, visual arts, and poetry. This month they will test their bravery by trying out a new medium for the first time! Standup Comedy has been a fierce adventure and creative challenge for Jessie Deville and they are sure to blow you away as they do with every other artistic endeavor they try out! Tiffany Gold: Tiffany is no stranger to the stage. She has been inspiring the Sacramento arts scene with her poetry for months as she frequents the mic at Speak Out! Sacramento. Inspiring, fearless, and resilient are three words easily used to describe this artist. You won’t want to miss her stage time whether she’s up there to make you laugh, cry, or both at the same time. Grace Loescherr: Grace fell victim to the relentless bound of a pinky promise in agreeing to participate fully in the class and show if Blake, Jessie, and Tiffany would too. She semi regrets this, but remains true to her word and will try not to cry and/or pee on stage at any point during the show. She encourages audience members to make use of the wide variety of alcohol for sale at Shine!
