Staehely Brothers at Redwood Cafe

Fri, April 12, 2019, 8:30 pm - 11:00 pm

The Staehely Brothers (Al & John) migrated to California in 1971 from Austin before Austin had made its musical bones. Al joined the already successful L.A. band, Spirit, as lead singer, bass player and songwriter. Upon Randy California’s departure, John joined Spirit in time to record the “Feedback” LP for Epic Records. Tours of the U.S., Canada and Australia followed, including headlining Carnegie Hall. When Spirit disbanded, Epic Records signed the brothers and released “STA-HAY-LEE” in 1973.
John went on to play lead guitar with Jo Jo Gunne, Robert Palmer, Bob Dylan, John Hiatt, and Paul Rodgers & Kenny Jones (The Law).
Al has had solo records release by Polydor in Europe and SteadyBoy Records in the U.S. Al’s songs have been recorded by Keith Moon, Bobbi Gentry, John Cipollina & Nick Gravenites, Marty Balin, Peter Cox (Go West). Al toured Europe with Cipollina & Gravenites and recorded with them the LP, “Monkey Medicine”, in Hamburg.
The brothers reside in Houston where, by day, John is an art dealer and Al is an entertainment lawyer.


Joining the Staehely Brothers will be Al Garth and Doug Harmon.

Al Garth has been a Sonoma County resident for 25 years, and a musician for even longer. His credits include work with Soul Fuse, the Volker Strifler Band, Loggins and Messina, the Eagles, Glenn Frey, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Dan Fogelberg, Chris Hillman, Poco, Pure Prairie League, the Amazing Rhythm Aces, and others.
