Posted By on Wed, Sep 18, 2013 at 10:30 AM

It’s Russian River Jazz & Blues Festival trivia time! 1. Who backed big acts like Joe Cocker, Tina Turner and Richard Marx before embarking on a solo career? 2. Who appears unaccredited in the movie Animal House as the bassist in the band Otis Day and the Knights? 3. Whose name means “to bring forth” in Yoruba, the language spoken in Niger and Togo? 4. Who grows grapes and produces wine with his wife in Napa, but also met and played with Steve Miller when he was just 15? (1. Euge Groove. 2. Robert Cray. 3. Ledisi. 4. Boz Scaggs.) These acts along with Times 4, Gregory Porter, Jeffrey Osborne, the California Honeydrops, Robert Thomas, Shane Dwight and others serenade the riverside on Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 21—22, at Johnson’s Beach. 16241 First St., Guerneville. 10am. $50—$80. 949.362.3366.—
