If you’re needing a bit of entertainment this coming weekend, well ... things couldn’t be better. The bay area is replete with excellent entertainments and things to do in a wide spectrum of genera’s.

Hows this for starters? The performing arts department at Sonoma State University in Rohnert Park, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of “Fiddler on the Roof,” is staging an excellent production February 6 through the 16th at the Evert B. Parson Theater on the SSU campus. And how’s this for cool, ... this Sunday, February 9th, at 5 p.m. there will be a sing-a-Long performance. For more information visit SSU Fiddler on the Roof.

Now, at the Sebastopol Hokpmonk this Saturday, you can see The Spyralites, a high energy group of Sonoma County musicians, each with miles of experience, and, at the Novato Hopmonk,

also on Saturday, you can see veteran performer Rusty Evans in his tribute to Johnny Cash.

On Saturday in San Francisco at the San Francisco Jazz Center you will have the opportunity to take advantage of one of the center’s Family Matinee concerts with the Marcus Shelby Quintet and Faye Carol. Mr. Shelby will be performing a musical tribute to freedom fighter, Civil War hero and Women’s Suffrage champion Harriet Tubman. This trubit is based on the research Shelby did into Harriet Tubman’s use of music to free herself and countless other slaves.

Sunday, Weill Hall at the Green Music Center in Rohnert, is the site of a rare and unforgettable performance by the Venice Barque Orchestra, performing on period instruments under the baton of Philippe Jaroussky.

And also on Sunday, at the Wells Fargo Center, you can see international music legend Engelbert Humperdinck. Humperdinck has sold over 150 million records. Not very many people remember that Jimi Hendrix and The Carpenters, started out as opening acts for Humperdinck and also, that he bumped The Beetles out of the number one spot on the charts.

And, as if that isn’t enough, The Cinnabar in Petaluma, has a full schedule of delightful entertainments planned for this weekend. The Cinnabar is a non profit and well worth your support. They run an ongoing young peoples program that gives local youth the opportunity learn and perform in a professional venue. I saw the youth performance of “Annie,” and believe me when I say, it was outstanding.
