Super 300 is (from the right) Brad Radis on Harp and Vocals, Jerry (Short Dog) Feldman on Guitar, Allan Hearn on bass and Jim Snodgrass on drums. The group performs dynamic arrangements of Chicago and traditional blues, as well as their own high energy boogie and swing-inspired original material. In the late '60s and '70s, as young musicians, Brad & Jerry backed various blues artists, including Shakey Jake Harris, Jimmy Witherspoon, Jimmy Reed, and J.D. Nicholson. This, along with influences of B.B. King, Muddy Waters, Albert Collins, Junior Wells, Sonny Boy Williamson and Magic Sam, continue to greatly influence the sound of Super 300.

Bassist Allan Hearn, originally out of Mississippi and Louisiana, has been playing consistently since the age of 13. Allan came to the West Coast to study at The Bass Institute of Technology and has established a long list of live performance and recording credits to his name, including playing bass on the soundtrack to the movie "Josie and the Pussycats." Allan has also received awards for his musical accomplishments and made appearances on Entertainment Tonight and The Playboy Channel.

Drummer Jim Snodgrass grew up in New York has been playing since the age of 14. Jim moved to Los Angeles in the mid '70s to study music and played at various venues over the years with a variety of artists, among them R & B soul artist King Cotton. Jim's association with Brad and Jerry goes back over 18 years. Jim and Allan inject a rock-solid and dynamic rhythm section into Super 300.
The band is dedicated to engaging audiences into the live performance blues experience.

Real-Photo Postcards

DVAC’s newest Gallery exhibit is now on display! Collector Charles Schoenknecht shares, in this show, over 50 Real -Photo Postcards from his collection of over 3000 cards.

He has been a collector since childhood, and felt “compelled” to collect and possess unusual things. One of his favorite areas is Real-Photo Postcards. These black and white images are reflections of the time and place where they were made. The postcards in this show were popular from 1902 into the 1930’s, and were made in quantities of six or less. These images celebrate moments and experiences of the subjects and their time, bridging the past and present. Calling on his background as an artist and art teacher, he chose these images. He hopes you will look for subject matter, details and mood and allow yourself to explore a small part of the past.

Since its founding in 2004, “Advancing the Arts – Creating Community” has been the motto of The Diamond Valley Arts Council. With The DVAC’s move into a new facility at 123 N. Harvard St. in downtown Hemet, the implications of that ideal has taken on even greater significance for both the arts and for the community. As an organization dedicated to promoting awareness of, and greater participation in, the arts, locating in downtown Hemet opens the door for greater visibility of what The DVAC is, what we do and what is available to our community in term of arts and culture activities, events and venues. Stop by The Arts Center during our planned business hours of 11:00 am to 5:00 pm any Wednesday through Saturday.

SLANG is that jazz funk band that will make your speakers smell. Listening to Slang live is more than music ~it's a life experience and a view into it's 5 members' souls. Anything can happen anytime the band takes the stage! Their sound pays reverence to all of their predecessors, while creating a progressive musical language deeply rooted in improvisational jazz, funk, rock, hip hop & neo-soul. This new sound was born in early on when it's 4 founding members all from other groups THE BREAKESTRA, THE PHARCYDE, GLOBETRODDAS, SHOPPY, JARF, AFTERNEXT, had a vision to funkify the world, expanding funk's possibilities and bringing its lively tradition back to a mainstream audience. The four brothers of the sun began jammin out tunes producing the first debut album self-titled (soul love an' groove) that is still in demand all over the world!! Even while all of this was going on there was still one thing missing, a last ingredient, a missing element and that was the (GRAMMY AWARD WINNING ) L.A. percussionist Miguel Ramirez, who has helped to bring this group into its current form.
