Every great music scene has at least one local record label of note, and in San Diego, nobody is pushing harder than The Redwoods. On Sept. 27, three of the imprint’s best will appear at the 710 Beach Club in a special show for NBC-TV’s “Sound Diego” program.

Wonderfully showcasing the label’s diversity, on hand will be spectral folk band, The Midnight Pine, indie rocker Birdy Bardot, and soul combo Rebecca Jade and the Cold Fact.

The unifying element in Redwoods' music is the sheer quality; great songs, production and playing adding up to albums that are worth repeated listens and deserving of radio play. These artists are currently primarily known to locals, but on the strength of their releases, that likely won’t be the case for long.

The Redwoods Revue: Friday, Sept. 27 at 710 Beach Club, 710 Garnet Ave. 9 p.m. 21 and up. No cover. 710bc.com.

On Sept. 27, swing dancers will want to head to Tio Leo’s for music from zoot-suited combo, Pachuco Jose Y Los Diamantes.

As anyone who has come across his playing at street fairs and coffee shops can attest, bluesman Robin Henkel is a gifted solo performer, with a manic stage presence and energy to spare. As impressive as that is, when he plays “with horns,” in full band mode, as he will on Sept. 27 at Dizzy’s, he manages to somehow ramp things up even more. Mixing up blues, jazz, and touches of early rock ‘n’ roll, Henkel delivers the goods with uptempo music that’s sure to get the feet tapping. If you’ve only seen Henkel in solo acoustic mode, this show will be a revelation.

Robin Henkel with Horns: Friday, Sept. 27 at Dizzy’s at Arias Hall, 1717 Morena Blvd. 8 p.m. $20. dizzysjazz.com.

If you like the music of Eric Clapton, you won't want to miss tribute band, Clapton Hook at Humphrey’s Backstage Live on Sept. 25.

It’s an impressive mix of tunes, including such evergreens as “White Room,” “Lay Down Sally” and “I Shot The Sheriff,” making this show a wonderful trip down rock’s memory lane for fans of either classic tunes or great guitar playing.

Clapton Hook: Wednesday, Sept. 25, at Humphrey’s Backstage Live, 2241 Shelter Island Drive. 8 p.m. $5. humphreysbackstagelive.com.
