Rick Holmstrom Band will be opening for Mavis Staples Thursday July 20th on the Santa Monica Pier. Rick's set starts at 7:30 pm and lasts about an hour. You don't want to miss this FREE all ages show. Whether you realize it or not, you've most likely heard Mavis with the Staple Singers (I'll Take You There, Respect Yourself, Freedom Highway, and many others) or seen her on The Last Waltz movie directed by Martin Scorcese. In any event, she's great...hope to see you on the pier!
