Sat., June 22, Derek Thomas
Club Retro, 6 p.m., $8-$10
Derek Thomas is one special kid. The 19-year-old singer-songwriter is a talented pianist with a deep, soulful and jazzy voice that's sounds like a mix between John Legend and Harry Connick Jr. For the last three years, he was in the Thomas & Plecker trio, and the group released an album called Come and Go (one listen to “Better Off This Way,” and it'll be stuck in your head all day). Now, Thomas fronts his own group with a handful of other musicians and also performs solo shows. This particular show—also featuring Humble Wolf, Love Royale and Chelsea Hughes—will raise funds for local victims of sex trafficking. 1529 Eureka Road in Roseville, www.facebook.com/musicbyderek.
