The Sons of Champlin
California's rich heritage has inspired music, art and culture for generations. In celebration of this legacy, Cal Heritage and the California Cannabis Industry Association (CCIA) invite you to join us at the Crest Theatre for an evening concert with the Sons of Champlin, with special guest Barry “The Fish” Melton. These are seminal musicians of the 1960’s “San Francisco Sound.” From Woodstock to the Crest – this is a rare opportunity to celebrate a timely shift in consciousness and promote unity among those in the cannabis industry.



The Sons of Champlin started in 1965 in Marin County, California, rising from the wreckage of the Opposite Six, a locally popular R&B band from the pre-Beatle era. “Six” members, Bill Champlin and Tim Cain, added Terry Haggerty and the first of a series of drummers and bass players. The new band was named for the “front” man, Bill Champlin. The present lineup of the Sons is: Bill Champlin, Geoff Palmer, Tim Cain, Tamara Champlin, Carmen Grillo, Dick Mithun, Jeff Lewis, and Alan Hertz.



The Sons of Champlin brought to the late 60's music scene in the Bay Area a unique, soulful sound built around a horn section, sophisticated arrangements, philosophical themes, Bill Champlin's songwriting talent, and Terry Haggerty's incredible jazz based guitar talent. They are regarded by many as one of the great 60's San Francisco bands, along with Jefferson Airplane, the Grateful Dead, and Moby Grape. Mickey Hart of the Grateful Dead had this to say about the Sons of Champlin: "They were breathing fire. They were the most talented of all the San Francisco Bands."
