Thom Bentley & Olen Dillingham & John Massey

January 29, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm PST



Friday, January 29 – 7:00PM

Thom Bentley

Guitar & Mandolin

Olen Dillingham

Violin & Mandolin

John Massey


Come to the reunion performance of these three great pickers. Enjoy an evening filled with swing versions of some American Classics.

This will be a one-time event.

Don’t miss it!

There will be a $12.00 cover charge ($7.00 for students) for this event.

Thom Bentley (guitar & mandolin), and Olen Dillingham (violin & mandolin), and I performed together for more that 10 years, including concerts at the Healdsburg Guitar Festival – the last being in 2013. Since then we have each been busy, separately, playing with a number of groups. A short time ago Olen was inducted into the Western Swing Hall of Fame. Really! You’ve got to hear these guys.

Here is what is being said about what you can expect:
The music can loosely be called “Swing” with a repertoire from Standards, Jazz, and Western Swing. This is a reunion of three master pickers. Each player brings a unique, and substantial skill set. The three musical points of view blend into one incredible, layered sound.

The Acoustic Den Cafe

Thank you my friends, for allowing me to host you these past 3 years. Special thanks to those who came to The Acoustic Den Cafe Saturday afternoon. It was a heartfelt pleasure to share some of my music with you (I warned you about my lack of rehearsal.) But you were, as you always have been, gracious and considerate of the musician on stage.

The second to last song that I sang was "As Friends" which I wrote in 1980, inspired by my friend in Chicago. As I said when I announced the song, I added a final verse to the song yesterday morning, dedicated to all of you.

To have understanding, supporting a cause
Accepting shortcomings, accepting the flaws
Ever believing and never deceiving
As friends
Until the end...

Thank you my friends.

One last thing on yesterday, an earring was found on the floor at a table near the door.

Status updates on The Den will be posted.

We couldn't get enough of them, and will follow them. Local Auburn group that has toured in Europe. Fortunately I got their CD! The "Den" is a great place to hang out in a nice atmosphere.

So far I've been to different open mics and Acoustic Blues Tuesdays. It's always a lot of fun. There's a wide range of talent & abilities from people who are helpful, supportive and non-judgemental. P.S. The sliders and chocolate chip cookies are killer!
