Keith Alan Barnett staying busy

Keith, Mixed Company guitarist/singer, has got a busy schedule this summer with various projects going.

Saturday, June 23rd he is playing a few songs for a diabetes research fundraiser in Virginia City. There will be about a dozen artists participating so it will be a non-stop showcase of talent. The show starts at 6pm at the Red Dog Saloon and if you haven’t been there before you owe it to yourself to drop by just to check it out. The history of this place is quite a story. But the real reason is to donate to a wonderful cause. Admission is free.

Then the following Saturday he will be participating in another Diabetes research fundraiser. This one is in Carson City at A to Zen on North Carson Street. The only thrift store that I’m aware of that doubles as a music venue. Many of the same artists from the show in Virginia City will be there but there will also be a few who are playing this show only. Again, the show starts at 6pm and admission is completely free. But please make a donation to help find a cure for this devastating disease.

Of course Keith’s day doesn’t end there. Immediately following his performance at A to Zen he will head down the street to Living the Good Life Bistro and Lounge to play with Mixed Company from 8:30pm to 12:30am. So be sure you drop by after attending the Diabetes fundraiser and dance the night away.

But wait, there’s more.

Friday June 6th Keith will be playing a solo gig at Bella Vita Bistro located at the Carson Mall. Music starts at 6pm and goes til whenever. So come on down, grab a great dinner then stick around and sing along, or just tap your foot if that’s what make you happy, we don’t judge.

But that’s not all.

Keith will also be joining Just for Fun for the Summer Concert Series on the outdoor stage at Carson City’s McFadden Plaza. This great, family friendly series of events is brought to you by the businesses surrounding the plaza, the Fox Brewpub, Mom & Pop’s, Scoups, and Bella Fiore Wine, every Friday night in July and August. Just for Fun will be playing July 20th and August 10th. Bring your family and friends and join the fun.

And Finally, Mixed Company will return for the 6th year in a row to the Main Street Show and Shine on Esmeralda Ave in Minden. We will once again set up right in the street outside the Corner Bar and provide the jams while you look at the all the cool cars, enjoy the food, the beer or other beverage, and dance in the street. August 17 at 5pm. We’ll probably crank it up about 5:30 or 6.

So, as you can see, there is plenty of opportunity to party with Keith as well as the rest of the band. Hope to see ya there.

Hope to see you there.

Flight 9-15-17 for the last time.

Over the years we have played Flight Restaurant and Bar in Minden more than anyplace else. Flight announced a few weeks ago that they have lost their lease at their current location and will be shutting down as of September 30, 2017. At the same time they announced that, while Flight will be no more, they will be opening a new location in South Carson City called Bella Vita Bistro and Catering, so you will still be able to find the exceptional food they are known for.
As of this writing we have not heard what the plans are for live music. But for now, before Flight closes it’s doors, we will be playing there one last time, Friday, September 15, 2017. Please join us in sending Flight out with a party thanking them for being the venue they have always been. One that has fully supported live music in Carson Valley.

Main Street Show and Shine – Minden

Mixed Company is proud to announce that, for the 5th year in a row, we will be the featured entertainment for the Main Street Show and Shine car show on August 18th. We will once again be playing right in the street at the corner of Esmeralda and 4th Street, right outside the Corner Bar, in the Heart of Minden.
So come on out and see decades worth of terrific automobiles, grab some food either on the street or at one of the many area restaurants, get yourself something to drink and dance the night away.

Mixed Company in Carson City

Hey all, it’s been a long time but we are finally coming back to Carson City. We will be playing on Saturday, December 3rd at the 11th Frame Winners Lounge at Carson Lanes Family Fun Center.
For those unfamiliar, this is not your typical bowling alley bar. This is an awesome place that has a full bar, stage, dance floor, and seating for around a hundred. There is also an adjacent, separate room with multiple pool tables to give you something to do between sets. There is also an arcade and restaurants on site.
