Altadena's favorite island party band comes back to the Sheriff Support Group Summer Concert Series on Saturday, Aug. 10 as Upstream returns to Farnsworth Park Amphitheater.
Welcome to the Upstream experience, please leave your inhibitions and other real world concerns at the door, we’re here to party! It’s been quite a wild ride for the members of Upstream, formed in the republic of Trinidad and Tobago in the late 1980’s and reformed in southern California in the early 1990’s, with six CD’s under their belt, and a very impressive live performance reference, Upstream has certainly earned the right to be called a seasoned musical outfit.
Band leader Haile Blackman (Lead Vocals, Guitar, Drums, Record Producer & MPC Guardian), will, without hesitation, readily explain that Upstream’s ultimate purpose is to take their audience on a journey, a temporary escape from themselves and a permanent escape from boredom. The band boasts a very seasoned and celebrated line up, Johnny Blackman (Drums & Background Vocals), Derek Brewster (Steel Pans, Bass & Background Vocals), Andre Morris (Keyboards & Background Vocals) David King (Bass & Background Vocals), and alternates include Marlon Alegria (Keys, Background Vocals) and Martin Tillett (Keys, Background Vocals).
Additional major sponsors include Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich, Rotary Club of Altadena, Monte Cedro, Athens Service, Toyota of Pasadena, El Patron Mexican Restaurant, All American Audio Visual, www.altadenablog.com, The Printworks and, Georgia Rutherford in memory of Don Rutherford.
