IT’S THE PEOPLE WHO MAKE THE PLACE

Whether born, raised or later resident, Sacramento brings out the best in people. See who you recognize who once did, or still call Sacramento home.

LYNN ANDERSON

Country music singer and Grammy Award Winner, Lynn Rene Anderson, was an American icon. With over 40 hit singles, many of which ended up on the top 10 music billboards, Lynn was named “Top Female Vocalist.” And the best part about her is that she worked as a secretary at a top 40 radio station right here in Sacramento!

TIMOTHY B. SCHMIT

Bassist and vocalist in the Eagles, and inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998, Timothy B. Schmit was born in Oakland, California and raised right here in Sacramento. Though the Eagles are considered a quintessentially Californian group, Schmit is the only member that’s actually a California native!

DEFTONES

Deftones is an American alternative metal band from…you’ll never guess…Sacramento, California! There must be something in the atmosphere here. The band was founded by Chino Moreno in 1988 and has released eight albums since their inception. Deftones is known to be one of the most experimental groups on the alt music scene.
