Carl Erickson and friends play June 29 and 30 at the Snoring Sasquatch.

Carl Erickson will play two shows at the Snoring Sasqautch on June 29 and 30, joined by three local musicians and a longtime friend from Pennsylvania.

On Saturday, Gary Snow, Rick Potyok and Adam Koenig will play with Erickson, and Cameron Molloy from Harrisburg, Penn., will join them on Sunday.

“Cam and I have not seen one another for more than 35 years so this should be a fun night,” said Erickson.

Over the years, Erickson has played saxophone and bass in about 250 recording sessions for other artists, ranging from R&B to country — and even some reggae in Jamaica.

He got his start as a preteen — “My brother took me to see Ray Charles about age 12 and I have never been the same since” — and toured across Canada and the U.S. before coming to Creston two years ago, forming the Hollyhocks with Warren and Kalen Huscroft.

Tickets for each show are $12 in advance, available at Kingfisher Used Books and Black Bear Books, and $15 at the doors, which open at 7 p.m.; the show starts at 8.
