Inception: San Diego, 1976


Stone's Throw was a San Diego treasure for more than a decade between the mid '70s to '80s. They were a perennial winner of the "Best Vintage Jazz" category in The Reader's annual music awards.

"With the other category winners, we got to play a composite concert each year at The La Paloma Theatre," recalls guitarist Wayne Riker. "The most recent Entertainers Awards Concert I have listed in my little red book was on April 21st, 1985, hosted by Larry Himmel at the La Paloma."

The band was the opening act at the 1984 Oylympic Village concert series in Los Angeles, playing the Cats & The Fiddle's "We Cats Will Swing For You" in a video now circulating on YouTube.
