CSUS doles out free ska-pop entertainment

Save FerrisSouthern California's ska-pop special Save Ferris are serving up a fine dish of finger-snapping frenzies at California State University, Sacramento. The free concert is from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 17 at Serna Plaza and includes local bands Limit Point, Bucho! and Freestate, as well as other entertainment.

Save Ferris was formed in 1995 and features guitarist Brian Mashburn, saxophonist Eric Zamora, bassist Bill Uechi, trumpeter Jose Castellanos, drummer Marc Harismendy, trombonist T-Bone Willy and vocalist Monique Powell.

So what is it about Save Ferris that people just can't resist? "It's the energy, the power, the greatness, the fun. It's everything," explains volunteer fan club president, Hoku Beale. "Their music inspires me to be strong and they remind me to smile. Their message is so simple and real."

Save Ferris recorded their first full-length album "It Means Everything" in 1996 for Epic Records. The album, produced by Peter Collins (Suicidal Tendencies and Jewel), features a re-make of the Dexy's Midnight Runners' hit "Come On Eileen."

The event is sponsored by CSUS UNIQUE Programs. For details call (916) 278-6997. Additional media assistance is available by contacting the CSUS public affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
