Sonoma County Wildlife Rescue is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and release of sick, injured and orphaned wildlife. We rescue about 1,500 animals each year and strive to give each animal the quality care it deserves. Sick, injured and orphaned wildlife receive medical care and a place to recover before being returned to their natural habitat. Our center is a registered non-profit (501c3) operated by staff and volunteers. As demand for our services grows, so does our budget. To maintain the animals we harbor and heal, in 2019, we must raise $900,000. We also have an Education Outreach Program that is dedicated to promoting understanding and appreciation of native wildlife. We offer presentations and tours to local schools and community organizations. We appear at fairs and local events to educate the general public about our center and promote peaceful coexistence with wildlife. Thank you for your support!
Our entertainment features local vintage jazz & blues group, The doRiaN Mode, with Dorian Bartley - bass/vocals, Bob Johns piano/cornet, David Scott - sax/flute and Tony Blake -percussion.
Last year's benefit sold-out, so reserve early!
Doors open at 5:30 p.m.
DORIAN BARTLEY created The doRiaN Mode in 2013 to play vintage jazz, swing and early R&B. She was born in Detroit to a mixed-race academic family surrounded by the musical riches of black culture. Using music to express her biracial identity, she sings and performs on the upright bass. She also works in other musical styles: country-roots with Foxes in the Henhouse, classical with Gravenstein Mandolin Ensemble and eclectic freelance groups around the Bay Area. Dorian studied at the University of Michigan and UC Berkeley and taught music in Petalumas public schools.
BOB JOHNS (piano/cornet) Bobs early piano lessons grew into a desire to improvise like his father who played jazz trumpet in big bands and small groups. When he arrived in San Francisco after a 4-year Navy hitch, Bob found like-minded players who formed the fusion group Nexus, playing in San Francisco and the East Bay through the 80s. He played keyboard and trombone for a time in the African group, Hedzoleh Soundz. Bob plays each Tuesday night with his jazz buddies at the Comstock Saloon in San Franciscos North Beach. He hosts an Open Mic once a month in Petaluma at the United Methodist Church.
TONY BLAKE (percussion) was born and raised in San Francisco. Chameleon-like and eclectic in his percussive expression, Tony is equally comfortable in symphony orchestras, small jazz ensembles, folk, rock or world music groups. He has developed a playing style that draws on many traditions. Finding the common pulse to support the music inspires him, no matter what the setting. Tony resides in Petaluma and is employed as an Environmental Scientist. He spends much of his free time traveling the San Francisco Bay Area making music.
DAVID SCOTT (sax) boarded a ship when he was an Australian teenager and headed for New Caledonia as a jazz musician. He settled for 10 years in Tahiti, playing jazz, rock and island music as well as learning French. David loved the fast dance tempos and when he sat in with a Sonoma County band, Gator Beat (now known as Gator Nation) in 1990, he found a means to express his own unique Zydeco style with interwoven horn and accordion. David is part of the Collaboration Jazz Band which performs locally.
