Drummer Shrieve will join Rolie’s band for show at The Point

To update an earlier post about the Gregg Rolie Band‘s July 17 show at The Point Casino, it sounds like drummer Michael Shrieve — like Rolie a founding member of Santana, and a card-carrying Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member — will join Rolie onstage.

The show is at 8 p.m. (doors open 7 p.m.).

Rolie (at right in the photo) is a founding member of not one, but two heavy-duty classic-rock bands, Santana and Journey. He played keyboards and was the original lead vocalist with Santana, then split off with guitarist NShrieve and Rolieeil Schon to form Journey. He was born in Seattle.

Shrieve has been based in Seattle for much of his time since Santana, including a stint as curator of the Bumberdrum attraction at the Bumbershoot music and art fair. He’s indelibly stamped into the memories of anyone who was at the original Woodstock — or anyone who’s seen the movie — for his “Soul Sacrifice” solo.

Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 on the day of the show. The casino is at 7989 Salish Lane west of Kingston.
