Neighbors for Nepal



Dinner & Show to Benefit Nepalese in Need.

We need your help! Please buy a ticket and attend the event on Saturday July 11. Tell your friends.

Dinner is provided by a number of local Nepali restaurants. You will be offered dishes like chicken tika masala, Tandoori chicken, cauliflower and potatoes, pakora and naan. Members of the Nepali Students and Scholars Association at UC Davis will prepare momos (dumplings).

Dinner will be served in the lower hall between 5 pm and 8 pm with open seating. Upstairs, we will offer a smorgasbord of music starting at 6 pm.

The bands will be driven by Odd Fellows. The headliner is the Barry "The Fish" Melton Band who will play at 9 pm. Barry is a Davis Odd Fellow and co-founded Country Joe and the Fish. His band includes a talented cast of musicians including Peter Albin on bass, who played with Big Brother & the Holding Company, Banana aka Lowell Levinger on keyboards and guitars, who co-founded the Youngbloods and played with Zero, and Roy Blumenfeld on drums, who played with the Blues Project and Seatrain.

The other bands include Zapato Viejo at 8 pm, a veteran of Thursday Live shows at the Lodge. They play an eclectic collection of material from Latin America and the United states as well as some original material. Although their base is the Afro-Cuban poly-rhythmic music they also play reggae, rockabilly, Latin Jazz, blues, R & B, funk and soul. They are a bunch of old vatos that enjoy getting’ down. They play whatever feels good.

Playing at 7 pm will be According to Bazooka, the newest collaboration of Odd Fellows Richard Urbino and René Martucci, who share a love for art, music and creativity. In According to Bazooka, they present their original compositions in a textural blend of acoustic guitar, accordion and two point harmony. Their songs have humor and spirit as they tell short stories inspired by living in the Sacramento Valley. Urbino and Martucci write in a pop-rock style that blends elements of rock and roll, country, ska, zydeco and other genres. Some might call it catchy Americana pop. Many of us know them through their alter ego known as Cold Shot.

Drivin’ South starts it off at 6 pm and offers the audience good clean fun (most of the time). Odd Fellow Mary Superak's voice transcends average boundaries together bandmates' accordion and guitar playing funky rhythm. Together, they offer original blues, old-time jazz and silky classics.

This is a great event for a great cause. See you there!
