Local Homes Sought for SSU International Students
Would you like to experience another culture while providing a place for an international student to live?

The Sonoma State American Language Institute (SSALI) is looking for homestay families who would like to share their homes with international students who are studying English in the SSALI program. Families should live within biking, walking, or a bus route from SSU in Rohnert Park or Cotati.

Students are seeking a home where they can be part of a family, learn about American culture & practice their English.

At SSALI, 4 sessions are held throughout the year: 2 summer sessions of 5-weeks each & spring & fall semester (15 weeks each).
The remaining dates are:
Summer 2 (2014): 7/10-8/14
Fall 2014: 9/4 – 12/19

SSALI students come from all over the world but the majority come from Asia. A sizeable number also arrive from Saudi Arabia & South America. Generally, the students are between the ages of 18-25. Most study English for 1 or 2 semesters, although some have been known to stay for as long as 2 years.

Students pay homestay fees directly to the family & there are 2 housing options. The most popular is the homestay option in which the student pays $700 each month & receives 16 meals each week, a private bedroom & full use of the laundry facilities. Utilities are included.

The student can also choose the "room only" option in which the student pays $550 each month & must buy and cook his/her own food. Even with this plan, the student is part of the family & is included in family activities. Applications from potential home stay families should be submitted several months in advance.

For more information, contact Debra Crow, International Student Coordinator, Sonoma State American Language Institute, debra.crow@sonoma.edu, (707) 664-2742.

Tab Benoit - Delta Blues
Winery Sponsor – Kokomo

Tab Benoit is a Cajun man who’s definitely got the blues. Born November 17, 1967, he grew up in Houma, Louisiana. A guitar player since his teenage years, he hung out at the Blues Box, a ramshackle music club & cultural center in nearby Baton Rouge run by guitarist Tabby Thomas. Playing guitar alongside Thomas & other high-profile regulars at the club, Benoit learned the blues first-hand from a faculty of living blues legends.

The nightly impromptu gigs were enough to inspire Benoit to assemble his own band – a stripped down bass-and-drums unit propelled by his solid guitar skills & leathery, Cajun-spiced vocal attack. He took his show on the road in the early ‘90s & hasn’t stopped since.

In 2007, Benoit won his first BB King Entertainer of the Year award, described as "the highest accolade afforded musicians & songwriters in Blues music." Benoit was inducted into The Louisiana Music Hall of Fame in 2010. In 2012, Benoit won 3 separate Blues Music Awards: Contemporary Blues Male Artist; Contemporary Blues Album & for the second time, B.B. King Entertainer of the Year. 2013 saw Benoit win the Blues Music Awards Contemporary Blues Male Artist for the 2nd year in a row. With great pleasure & pride we offer fans of Friday Night Live this incredible free concert with a world renowned performer!

Eric Lindell - Blue-eyed Soul
Winery Sponsor – Milano

With his musical roots planted in Northern California where he has an almost maniacally-loyal following, Lindell’s music blossomed in New Orleans. He performs music that is as at home on your front porch on a summer evening as it is in a hot sweaty club on a Saturday night. It is southern soul music, infused with R&B & a touch of New Orleans funk. It is blues music, glazed with a taste of country. It's simple, heartfelt song writing; melodic guitar solos & an energized live performance.

Eric has been recording & performing his brand of Americana music for over 20 years. Currently his band’s rhythm section, comprised of Myles Weeks on upright bass & Will McMains on drums, have been with Eric for over 4 years, making their live performances incredibly tight & intuitive. Both players are young, but have a swing feel of much more seasoned musicians..... making for pure honest American roots music at its finest.
